| Category: Fitness, Tips | 0 Comments

Home fitnessIn our attempt of escaping or avoiding physical exercise, we come up with all sorts of interesting excuses, more or less true.

In this sense, the financial aspect is often invoked…that we don’t have enough money for the monthly subscription, that we have to buy new equipment for going at the gym and so on….it really seems like an impossible mission!

However, mean people, people who want to see us slim and fit have come up with all sorts of ideas and solutions to solve the issue. For example, how about setting up your personal gym at home by spending only a couple of hundreds of dollars? It sounds impossible…in reality, it is not!

Getting Rid Of Back Fat

| Category: Fitness | 0 Comments

Fat backWe all know that there is no way to target particular areas of our body for weight loss, or to spot reduce, as its commonly known.

While spot reducing could be awesome, if it actually worked, it generally doesn’t.

This is why hundreds of crunches, or leg lifts, won’t necessarily help you reduce the fat in your stomach or thighs.

The only way to reduce fat on a particular area of your body, is through overall weight loss by cardiovascular activity and/or resistance training.

Most women have issues with those pesky rolls of fat on our backs, beneath our armpits, bras and in the lower back and love handles area. Try as we might, we can’t seem to get rid of those unsightly rolls.

Trying to spot reduce your back fat won’t work, you first have to (more…)

Couch Potatoes Can Workout Too

| Category: Fitness | 0 Comments

Couch potatoFinding time to exercise can be difficult for many of us.

In between our busy work or school schedules, our social calendars and family lives, we are often unable to prioritize going to the gym or working out in general, as we probably should be doing.

To maintain our health and weight, we should be fitting in physical activity at least three times per week.

That can seem daunting for those of us who work, go to school, or have a hectic family life.

Many of us who lead busy lifestyles find our only reprieve when we return to our houses and sit in front of the television, on the couch, with a glass of wine and a slice of cake. We can sometimes spend hours and hours in front of the television, not even realizing what we are doing, sometimes even (more…)

| Category: Fitness | 0 Comments

TreadmillThe frigid Winter weather has probably kept you huddling indoors, curled up on your couch or for the really dedicated: working out indoors and maybe running on your treadmill.
