  • Make the best of everything while the fall season lasts!

Yes, it’s time to utilize the flawless weather conditions of autumn or Fall, as we call it, as its neither too hot nor too cold to reduce weight and tone up the sagging muscles! The Fall season can be the picture-perfect time due to its blend of moderate hot and cold temperatures to drop weight! It’s the best season to attain fitness by indulging in simplest, fat blasting physical exercises such as mountain expeditions, hiking, walking, kayaking, running and cycling. Simply climbing up the hills, going with friends for pleasant nature walks, hiking to hunt and discover hidden treasure buried deep in the heart of the earth are the best examples of the vigorous fitness exercises one can choose to lose a hefty amount of extra, unsightly weight accumulated on the body! You can also relax the mind and soul by simply doing some great hot yoga to get fit and eat only gluten free foods to look fit and fabulous!

Embrace the Gluten Free Foods!

Avoid indulging in scrumptious, guilty pleasures of carbohydrate rich foods and cleanse your diet, making it gluten free! Yes, a gluten free lifestyle paves the way to a longer, healthier life, making one appear younger and attractive even beyond the mid-forties! A healthy eating lifestyle imparts an everlasting youth, no matter what number your age may be. And fall is the best time, as it’s the most energetic time of the year after summer, due to its periods of less hunger, acidity and thirst, unlike the extremities of season experienced during summer and winter! Lesser food cravings obviously mean lesser hunger and eating a gluten free diet simply reduces acidity and thus, the extra pounds of excess weight.

  • Fortify the Immunity Cells

Our immune system is basically the body’s defense mechanism system and while Fall lasts, one can always prepare the body to act stronger for the coming winter spell. The flu dreaded winter season often arrives with a flock of poor immunity diseases such as cold and flu, making the sufferers rush after doctors, flu pills and hot, bubbling soups! So, boost your immune system by exercising energetically during Fall, as its only fitness exercises that strengthen the immune cells to fight cold and flu diseases!

  • Wear that LBD (Little Black Dress) Proudly!

Or simply have a breakfast at Tiffany’s wearing the tiny black dress in autumn?! Well, fall time is the best time to do that. To travel and have fun, looking incredibly fit! Have you always envied the friends who skimpily flaunt the tiny black dress and the adorable muffin top while you looked fat like Winnie the Pooh? Well, let go of all the embarrassing moments of despair and no longer allow people to body sham you! It’s a good thing to be proud of what we are and accept our strengths and weaknesses, however, getting fit is simply the best favor one can bestow on oneself as a health concern. As a result, a physically fit person can always concentrate better on life as well as handle peer pressure. And when it comes to attain fitness, the Fall season is the mildest season to spring into all those New Year resolutions of losing weight and looking the best in town! Yes, simply conjure reality from the long-awaited dreams of sporting the perfect, svelte physique, the flattering abs, toned muscles and great, glowing skin by getting fit during the fall period. Explore how well you can diet and focus on attaining a healthy fitness regimen and shed tons of unwanted kilos from your frame. Ladies make your frame tiny and petite like Hollywood divas and gentlemen, its simply the time to bid no to all those fattening snacks during hectic office hours and sport the toned, tightened dashing figure of Hollywood men like Hugh Jackman or a sophisticated MI agent like Tom Cruise wearing the magnificent, slim fit leather jackets and ruling their own game!

Hope you enjoyed reading about the tips and the advantages of getting fit (or staying fit for many of you) during Fall! Hope you have a Gluten Free Fit Fall time! I sure have my fingers crossed for you!

Two Things You MUST Know Before You Step on The Treadmill

No Comments

Do You Know the Answer to these Two Questions?

You’re probably thinking there aren’t many things you can do with a treadmill. That’s one of the reasons they aren’t used consistently, after running the same distance, at the same pace for weeks on end anyone is going to get bored. Well, ladies and gentlemen, variety is the spice of life and when you’re done reading this you’ll have a solid base to begin your running program.

Before we get started on exercise routines for treadmills, we need the answer to two things you MUST know before you step on the treadmill.

1) What muscles are worked?

Running works all of the muscles in your legs. Quads, hamstrings, calves and all the smaller muscles in your feet are fully engaged to keep you moving and balanced. Make sure you have good shoes and running form before you start running consistently. The other muscle, and the effect of strengthening it, is a bit less clear. Running is cardio, cardio is short hand for cardiovascular. You are actively training your heart to pump blood, and your lungs to oxygenate that blood.

Are you familiar with that feeling when you get up 3 flights of stairs and are gasping? Your body is struggling to send oxygen everywhere it is needed and is increasing your heart rate and breathing to meet demand. Imagine that your body is a car. Oxygen is the fuel. Through proper exercise and training you are increasing your fuel efficiency.

This oxygen efficiency will carry over into every other part of your life. Want to chase your kids around when you’re 40? You need to breathe effectively. Want to improve at work? Your brain needs more oxygen to be at its peak. What I’m trying to say is that your heart health is the MOST important aspect of physical fitness. And with diet and exercise you will have a healthy heart that will pump for many decades to come.

2) What is the best method for long term health?

The most important metric for your cardio exercise is intensity. Break a sweat, get your heart rate up, and go hard but please stay within your fitness capability. With a treadmill you have a lot of ways to do this. Do what you can based off the time you have. Here are three suggestions:

  1. THE HIKE – Set up a moderate incline and fast walking pace, not quite a jog, not a slow pace. Go for 25 minutes. You’re going to sweat. A lot. Do this 3-5 times per week and you’re going to drop water weight, burn a bit of fat, and breathe much more efficiently.
  2. TEN MINUTE BLITZ – High Intensity Interval Training is scientifically proven to work. For rapid fat loss and muscle gain, the HIIT workouts are great for when when you are crunched for time. You’ll start at a slow jog for 30 seconds. Blast the speed up for 30 seconds and then slow back down to a walk. 30 second sprint alternate 30 second walk until 10 minutes is done.
  3. TWO MILE CRUISE – Set your pace for an 8 minute mile, run your two miles. This one isn’t complicated it’ll take all of 16 minutes and it’s a good bench mark of your cardio health. As it improves pick up the pace or add miles as needed.

These would need to be split to be truly effective. I would not recommend 7 days of cardio per week or doing all of these in a week.

  • For 2 weeks do #1, 3 times per week.
  • For 2 weeks do #2, 4 times a week
  • For 2 weeks do #3, no more than 3x a week. Long distance work is hard on the knees and hips over time. Joint health is crucial; don’t shred your knees running 20 miles a week.

This mini program goes to show that when you are using a treadmill you’re options are limitless. Whatever you can do on a track or trail you can do on a treadmill, with slight variations. Remember to emphasize full range of motion and long term health with any exercise and you cannot go wrong.

REMEMBER:  this article only suggests what to do on a treadmill.  Please consult your Physician before starting an exercise routine.
