SASA’S “From the Doctors”: Dr. Lou Ignarro- 3 Exercises to Try at Herbalife24 Fit Club

3 Exercises to Try at Herbalife24 Fit Club

exercise-9There’s a movement sweeping Herbalife. It’s motivating people to get active and fit, inspiring distributors to work exercise into their daily lives. It provides camaraderie and inspires friendships. What is it? It’s Herbalife24 Fit Clubs.

From the parks of Manhattan to Papeete on the Island of Tahiti, Fit Club members are regularly working together to get or stay fit. Studies show that people who exercise together are more likely to achieve their fitness goals; sweating it out together is motivating in itself, but group exercisers also benefit from social support and varied exercise.

Next time you’re at Herbalife24 Fit Club, or even just with a few motivated friends, why not add a few heart-healthy exercises into your routine? Aerobic activity—also called “cardio”—involves repeatedly moving large muscles in your body. While other types of exercise are important for total wellness, too, it’s important to work aerobic exercise into your workout routine. This type of movement gets your heart pumping, your blood flowing, and helps support the health of the endothelium, among other benefits.

If you’re not sure what exercises to do, here are three you can try at your next Herbalife24 Fit Club:

Exercise: Walking/jogging

How to do it: Pick a scenic greenbelt or trail, and move your body! If you live in a city, you can go to a large local park and do laps. For those new to exercise, a brisk walk is a great way to start. Each time you engage in walking or jogging, push yourself to go a little harder and longer. A good rule of thumb is that you should be able to carry on a conversation while engaging in this activity; if you’re having trouble breathing or have to breathe between words, you might want to slow down.

Exercise: Step aerobics

How to do it: I’ll admit step aerobics make me think of ’80s fitness videos, but there’s a reason they were so popular during that decade: They’re a fun way to get the heart pumping. To do this activity, simply find a step in a public place like a park, or purchase one for around $30 to use outdoors or at home, and get stepping. During colder months, people in your group can also take turns hosting in-home workouts to aerobics videos. You can find a variety of instructional videos online; I like the “Fat Burning Circuit” video by Samantha Clayton, which includes some step exercises.

Exercise: Jumping rope

How to do it: This childhood classic makes for a great heart-healthy exercise for adults. To select a jump rope that fits your body, place one foot in the center of the rope, and pull the handles upwards; they should come to about your armpits (but not past). While turning the rope, keep your elbows in, and turn the rope with just your forearms and wrists, keeping the shoulders steady. As you jump, don’t overdo it; you only need about 1 to 2 inches of space for the rope to clear under your feet. If you get tired of turning the rope, or if you don’t have a jump rope available, you can just do the motion of turning the rope and jumping. Jumping without a rope is not the same workout, but it’s still good movement.

Whether you’re part of a Fit Club, or just meeting with a few motivated friends, try working these heart-healthy exercises into your routine. Remember that aerobic exercise targets the heart and cardiovascular system, but you need all types of activity to maintain total wellness. What activities do you do with your fitness group? Share in the comments.

SASA’S WELLNESS TIP: Making diet resolutions? Try diet changes instead!

Making diet resolutions? Try diet changes instead!

 30 Dec 2013   Posted by Herbalife | Nutrition for a Better Life 

Making diet resolutions? Try diet changes instead! Herbalife Nutrition Advice

Planning your diet resolutions for the New Year? Try making a few small changes every month – all year long.

January 1 is right around the corner – which means it’s time to dust off that list of diet resolutions you made last year (and the year before that?) … and vow to tackle them again. It’s our nature to look upon the New Year as a time to start fresh. It’s a time of promise and hope – we promise ourselves we’re going to eat right and get into shape… and we hope we can stick with our resolutions. But we don’t. Often it’s because our diet and lifestyle “to-do” list is a mile long – and it’s just too hard to make that many changes all at once. We’re creatures of habit, and it just takes time for new habits to take hold.

Diet Resolutions for 2014 – A Stepwise Approach

Make a Few Small Changes Every Month

So here’s a suggestion for you. Go ahead and make that to-do list – but just don’t try to make all your changes at once. In fact, I’m going to suggest that you tackle just three small changes in January – another three in February, three more in March and so on until the end of the year. And here’s why. If you work on establishing just three new habits for a month, you won’t be overwhelmed with trying to focus on too many things at once. And by the end of the month, the three new habits will be part of your routine, and you’ll be ready to take on three more changes in the following month.

Keep Your Diet Resolutions Going All Year Long

Suppose that those three changes you make in January cut out a total of 100 calories a day from your diet. That might not sound like a lot, but let’s say the same thing happens in February and March and April and May. Five months into the New Year, you’ve made a total of 15 small, sustainable changes to your eating habits, and you’re now saving 500 calories a day – enough to lose up to a pound a week.

Think about what you’d like to work on first. Maybe you’d like to cut your fat or sugar intake. Maybe your portions are just too large or your problem is that you don’t eat enough fruits or vegetables. Maybe you’re an emotional eater and you want to work on that. Then determine the three things you plan to do in January and get to work.

Three Small Diet Changes a Month

Let’s say you want to cut back on your sugar intake. Your diet resolutions for January might be:

  • I will have fruit for dessert instead of cookies
  • I will cut my soda intake in half
  • I will switch from pre-sweetened yogurt to plain yogurt

Maybe eating too much fat is your problem. In that case, your January diet resolutions might be:

  • Instead of chips or fries with my lunch, I will have a side salad instead
  • I will switch from regular salad dressing to low fat
  • I will have my coffee drinks made with nonfat milk instead of whole milk

If it’s portion control you need to work on, your January resolutions might look like this:

  • I will use smaller plates when I eat at home to control my portions
  • When I go out to eat, I will ask the server to put half my meal in a take-home container and serve me the rest
  • I will weigh and measure my food portions a few times a week to make sure I’m staying on track

Maybe this is the year to take a different approach to your diet resolutions. Make a few changes, give them a month to ‘settle in’, and then build on those changes month after month. True, this stepwise approach isn’t the complete diet overhaul that you may attempt every January (and abandon by February) – but what have you got to lose?

Tell me in the comments if you’re willing to join me in making small diet changes and working to make eating well an everyday habit!
