Keeping Yourself Fit At Home

Date May 9, 2009

reboundersGym memberships can cost hundreds of dollars every year, and at peak times they can be very busy, making it difficult for you to use the exercise machines you want or even find a space in the car park and changing rooms. It can be much cheaper and easier to set up an exercise routine from home, and this can be just as effective on weight loss and fitness levels as using a gym.

Routine

It is important when you exercise from home that you stick to a routine, and if you find it difficult to motivate yourself try and alternate your exercises to make it more interesting. For example you could include a mixture of low impact exercise such as walking or yoga, with high impact cardio exercises like running or cycling. Not only will this improve your all round fitness, fitness works best with vitamin d, but it will also make it much more interesting, and more likely that you will stick to a regular routine.

Equipment

You can buy an excellent range of cardio equipment for your home these days, from exercise bikes to rowing machines, which are durable, light and easy to store away when they are not in use. This can be much cheaper in the long run than paying to use the local gym equipment and you can use it whenever you want, making it easier to fit your cardio exercise into the day.

BeFitInnovations has a great range of fitness machines, including compact rowers from just $169, which can be ordered securely online at their website Befitinnovations.com. BeFitInnovations also has a great range of low impact equipment for your home exercise routine including the popular mini Needak trampolines (also called rebounders), which provide a fun and efficient way to burn off calories and increase overall stamina.

What Are Acai Berries

Date December 21, 2008

Background

Acai berries originate from South America , and grow mainly in swampy areas of remote rainforest. They have been an essential part of the South American tribal diet for centuries, because they produce abundant fruit crops twice a year, which are high in nutrients, antioxidants and plant fibres. The health benefits of these acai berries have become widely known throughout the world and they are now classed as one of the great ‘Super Foods’ (which are natural ingredients with higher than average phytonutrient content), and other fruits from this group include cranberries, apples and blueberries.

Clinical Studies results

The acai berry diet has also been found to be effective in weight loss, as the berries aid efficient digestion, and help excess food and waste to be eliminated quickly and naturally from your system. This helps to prevent digestive problems such as constipation, which can leave food sitting in your digestive tract allowing fats and toxins to be reabsorbed back into your body. Constipation and slow bowels can also make you feel very tired and bloated and also increase food cravings, so by encouraging your system to speed up naturally you can actually boost energy levels and stimulate your metabolism to burn fat much more quickly, and also prevent persistent food cravings that can ruin healthy eating plans.

Chemical Elements

Acai berries have complex chemical structures that include a number of active phytonutrients such as the flavonoid-like compounds homoorientin and proanthocyanidin. These have been found to have powerful antioxidant effects, which combined with the wide variety of essential vitamins and minerals (including iron, calcium and Vitamins B, C and E), can be very beneficial to overall health.

Acai Products

The acai diet is now popular throughout the world and you can buy acai berries in a number of different products such as teas, drinks, sweets and yogurts. For the best weight loss effects you need to buy products that contain pure acai berry (including the fruit pulp), as this is where the essential dietary fibre and proteins come from to aid efficient digestion. The best ways to buy pure acai berry is either fresh, frozen or freeze dried, so look for products that contain these forms of the acai berry. :)

If you are more serious about this form of exercise you can set up permanent suspended punching bags in garages and spare rooms, but you can also get cheaper inflatable punch bags that can be set up in anywhere in the house.
  • Trampolines – using trampolines is very good exercise, and you can get mini fitness trampolines from most good sports shops for around £20.
  • Exercise Bikes – if you do not have enough room for a full exercise bike, then there are some small sized bikes available such as V-Fit Portable Mini Bike (£24.49). Cycling is a great way to burn fat and increase stamina and muscle tone.
  • Yoga Mat – fitness isn’t just about losing weight and building up muscle, but also about increasing flexibility and reducing stress. Incorporating a meditative exercise program into your over fitness plan is great for relaxing both the mind and body, and yoga mats plus video tutorials are cheap and easy to buy, and can be easily done at home.

As well as these more conventional equipment options, you can now also get fitness equipment that is integrated into gaming software. The Wii Fit is Nintendo’s fitness package for the Wii Console, and is aimed to make exercise more appealing by presenting it as a new kind of video game. Wii Fit software comes with a Wii Balance Board, which the user can stand on.
