Learn to Relax and Have Fun Playtime Outdoors

Connect with nature and get your regular dose of natural stress relief while you’re at it! This we should memorize as a daily mantra.

I talk a lot about getting outdoors to move, do your exercise and have fun while you are at it. Most of us don’t follow my advice, sometimes (because of work); I don’t follow my own advice. But I try damn hard to, because I know how much better it makes me feel.

Leading a healthy lifestyle is not just about eating healthy food (if you know what that is) and working out all the time. It’s about being aware of your life and moments throughout your day, and it’s about taking time for you, relaxing, doing fun things alone or with family and friends. The more time you spend focusing on your inner well being and the more you look after you, the better you are going to feel. This will result in a more “productive you” at work and a more “fun you” to be around. People who don’t get out, just stare at a screen all day and night, nor make an effort on weekends to break the mould and do something different, are mostly bitter people who think they have all the cards stacked against them and things are unfair. Well, they don’t at all; they stack them that way with their own self-destructive behaviour. Get out and make an effort!

As a Health Coach with my own story of recovery from depression and being overweight, I can really attest to this being a major factor in the process of getting well again and finding that healthy lifestyle, for real.

Many of us think we are healthy, maybe because you hit the gym every day, or think you eat loads of salad. Not so fast, too much hard exercise actually harms your overall health and well being. What we need is a good dose of balance with everything we do.

But first we need to draw up a menu of everything we “should” be doing and check it daily and weekly to make sure are doing it right.

That menu should include:

  • Eat well (and I mean follow the keto diet to become ketogenic). This will in itself become a lifestyle habit for you that you will not want to break. Once you learn how to achieve this and get there, it’s the most amazing feeling.
  • Workouts and Fitness Routines need to be carefully coordinated so that you do not over exercise, as so many people do everyday worldwide. Your whole body fitness program may need a total adjustment.
  • Set up an “efficient” cardio and weight training program, but do not over exercise.
  • Schedule alone time in your calendar for reading and meditating.
  • Schedule Play and Fun time alone or with friends and family.
  • Make sure you breath take note of what’s going on during your day while you are living it, or you may just miss it and become automated. This is MINDFULNESS; we need to adopt a mindful mind. This will help you take more enjoyment out of any given situation and deal with difficult ones more effectively.

What is a GPS Watch, What Does it Do, and How Can it Help Me With My Fitness Program?

GPS watches utilize a network of global positioning satellites to precisely track how far and how fast you are running, biking, or swimming. Anytime. Anywhere in the world. It will measure your real-time speed, average speed and maximum speed. It calculates your pace, average pace and best pace, tracks your workout distance, and also functions as a continuous odometer. Whether you’re buying one for yourself or purchasing a gift for someone else, we’re here to help you understand what you’re buying. We’ll guide you to match the right technology for your intended use or to maximize your training or exercise experience.

What does a GPS watch do and how can it help me with my fitness program?

The first thing that comes to people’s mind is that a GPS watch will tell them the direction they’re heading (i.e. North by Northeast) or street address similar to what a car’s navigation system does. This is not true. Although GPS (Global Positional System) watches use the same principles, it is not nearly as sophisticated. Like your car’s navigation system, it communications with the satellites in orbit around the earth to determine your exact coordinates each second while you move. It then sends this information to the watch to calculate your velocity and distance traveled between each set of coordinates.

So why does this matter to me if I’m a runner, cyclist, rower, skier or walker?

Because now you can get the most critical information about your workout that you could never get previously unless you exercised at a track or some other pre-measured course. Namely, how far did I go and how fast did I get there? A GPS watch will provide you with all this information. Here’s some typical data collected from a runner’s workout:

  • The Average Speed during the run was 7.5 miles per hour.
  • The Maximum Speed achieved was 9.0 miles per hour.
  • The Average Pace during the run was 8 minute miles.
  • The Best Pace achieved was 6.5 minute miles.
  • The Total Distance was 3.5 miles.
  • The Total Time was 28 minutes.

This is great information to know so you can target improvements in your exercise program and monitor how you’re performing toward meeting those goals. And you can go anywhere. You’re not constrained by a specific circuit or measured course. Just run, walk or cycle anywhere you want and the GPS watch will perform the calculations no matter where you go. This technology works anywhere in the world because the GPS system is designed to receive information from up to 12 satellites at any one time that are located on the same side of the earth as you. If you’re serious about getting fit or improving upon your current fitness regime, a GPS Watch is a great training tool to own.

So now that you understand how a GPS Watch works and what it can do, choose the model is right for you. Here are the main options to look for:

Heart Rate Monitoring – Some GPS watches come with Heart Rate Monitors so you can gauge your heart rate in addition to your time, speed and distance. The Timex Global Trainer and the Garmin Forerunner 405 both offer this option. In order to reach your fitness goals, you need to train at the right intensity level. Heart rate is the only accurate measurement of your intensity or exertion level. That’s why using a Heart rate monitor is such a valuable part of your training.

Review of Horizon Fitness Treadmills Including the T72, T82 and T900

There are many exercise machines available today on the market. When it comes to treadmills, the Horizon Fitness Treadmills are very popular. This includes the Horizon T72, Horizon T82 and Horizon T900. So here is the review of all three.

Horizon T72 is priced below $1000 often in 700-800 dollar price range. Horizon T72 is nice-looking machine and made by Johnson. This is one of the popular names in the treadmill business. It has a fair valuefor an economy treadmill. The most comparable brand to this is the ProForm. It comes with the 6 built in programs, and higher incline than others. It also has extended warranty on the parts. The basic specifications of this treadmill are: 2.0HP motor, 0.5-10MPH speed, incline of 0-10%, tread belt 20″ x 55″ and easy stored unit. The Horizon T 72 used AirCell shock absorption to cushion your joints and ligaments while working out. As an additional benefit, there is the built in fan, a nice cool down while working out.

There is not that much difference between the Horizon fitness treadmill T72 and Horizon T82, it just has few more upgrades. With this model, Horizon had upgraded the plastic they use on these machines. Usually, when treadmills are in the lower price range, you need to pay close attention when assembling them. This is due to a very thin plastic that makes up the consoles and shrouds. But as mentioned before, on the Horizon T82 treadmill the plastic is a lot thicker. This feature will make your machine last a lot longer. This unit is very easily put together. The instructions are very easy to follow and within 30 minutes this machine should be ready to go. Some of the specifications of this machines are: 2.25 HP motor, cushion system ComfortZone air cell, folding – hydraulic assisted, 3 orange backlite LCD display, and with built in 14 programs. The Horizon control console emphasizes simplicity, with logical control locations and three orange backlit LCD screens that offers key feedback on your workout. The Horizon T82 is folds nicely and quickly. Horizon’s have the exclusive FeatherLight lift, which incorporates two hydraulic shocks to assist you when raising and lowering the deck. Other details include contact heart rate grips, a built-in cooling fan, an MP3 port with speakers and a headphone jack, and a 20-by-55-inch running area.

And now lest review the Horizon T900 fitness treadmill. The console is made to give you a nice luxury feel. The T900 makes it easier to push to a new fitness goal. An iPod® dock charges as it plays your workout playlist, while the wider speed and incline range let you take your workout to new levels. This treadmill is one of the top of the line treadmills in Horizon line. It comes with features: such as 4-zone variable cushioning provides shock absorption and support along the entire belt. Large, heavy frame is stable during the most intense exercise sessions. Durable, 20″ x 55″ belt adds shock absorption throughout your stride. 2.5 CHP motor is powerful, quiet, and backed by a lifetime warranty. Wider, 0 to 12 mph and 0-12% incline ranges give you more places to take your exercise program. And lastly what makes this machine look good is, clear LED screens display heart rate and other key workout feedback.The Horizon T900 treadmill has 13 build in programs. eTRAK(TM) monitors and evaluates a variety of workout statistics over time. iPod® dock charges your unit as it plays through premium console speakers. What Horizon T900 did is that it provided user with the fun exercise experience. The added feature of iPod® did just that. I hope you enjoyed this review of Horizon Fitness Treadmills.
