The sun and rain look very inviting!  You happily perch on your sofa with a cup of hot tea and your favorite film is about to start. For many of us, this is a typical start to a weeknight during the early spring months. Don’t wait till summer! it may never happen!  Damp wet weather outside can halt even the most earnest attempt to maintain your fitness in spring. Most fitness gyms have more than enough resources to get you started on your spring exercise plan and send you on your way to a fabulously fit season.

 Make it Personal
“A personal trainer can help you set up a strength and flexibility maintenance program that will help you stay in shape and even get fitter.” Jog or power-stride on a treadmill or elliptical trainer to maintain energy levels and prevent weight gain.
There are no excuses to put off exercising during the spring months, especially since there are important health reasons to consider.  Hibernation during the winter and spring tend to pack on extra fat and weight, We become unconditioned!  Lack of regular physical activity also makes people feel lethargic, irritable and seasonally depressed.”

Walking to Health
Walking will help improve your health. Experts now say that taking roughly 10,000 steps per day help with physical benefits, including heart disease, lower blood pressure, reduced risk for and better odds for preventing cancer.
Does 10,000 steps sound overwhelming? It translates into 4.5 to 5 miles, or one hour of rapid walking. Still sound like a lot? Try breaking it into shorter walks: three 20-minute sessions on foot, or one breezy 30-minute walk before breakfast and another after dinner.  In fact, this plan is so easy and natural, it hardly feels like a weight-loss program. Of course, that’s the beauty of walking. The simple act of placing one foot in front of the other — no gadgets, no gear, no trips to the gym — can totally transform your figure, even if you don’t change one thing about your diet!

Good News
The good news is that regular exercise incorporated into our lifestyle can improve our heart & respiratory function, lower our blood pressure, increase our strength, improve bone density, improve flexibility, quicken our reaction time, reduce body fat, increase muscle mass, and reduce our susceptibility to depression & disease.

OAP
Older Active person! we now have a better understanding of why some people tend to age much faster than others.Studies have shown that regular exercise by middle aged & elderly people can set back the clock 20-30 years when compared to those who do little or no exercise. By the time most of us reach the age of 45 or 60 we tend to accept the negative effects of aging as a fact of life that we have little or no control over.  However, recent studies have shown that we can alter the rate at which our bodies progress through our life cycle. There is a large body of scientific evidence that suggests that we can slow down and even reverse the symptoms of aging. In fact many of us can be in better health in our 70’s than we were in our 50’s.
