For Your Body’s Sake..Keep moving

by Ernie Boxall on July 16, 2014

  If you’re anything like me, you may have spent much of your life either in contact sports or in work that involved poor posture or positions of stress.
  
The damage is done, now what? 
 
   Thank goodness exercise doesn’t come in just one package. Many people put on plenty of pounds of fat, or their joints get stiff. They quit working out due to pain or poor self-esteem
.  
The average person puts on 7-10 pounds every three months, and I can assure you, it is rarely lean muscle.  If you put on 10 pounds over the holidays, and you already wanted to lose 10 pounds prior to the holidays, then you now have 20 pounds to lose!
   The smartest thing to do would be to continue workouts. Most programmes rightly suggest you try to do some extra cardio, and take control of your food intake and alcohol consumption. But what about the people who, for one reason or another, cannot continue with cardiovascular workouts?
 
Is there an alternative?
   Many people, athletes included have been attracted to alternative programmes of Yoga,Pilates or T’ai Chi and after the initial introduction to a slower, more controlled programme, have appreciated the benefit of these forms of exercise.
   Many people fall into the “Trap of Tomorrow.” The trap of putting off things that should be done now, but “promising” ourselves that we’ll do it at a later date.  More often than not, the Trap of Tomorrow means not attaining the goals that are truly important to us.  Studies have shown that up to 90% of people who have the best intentions of working out tomorrow, next week, or next month never actually get around to it and fail to reach their goals.
   Some people have found the best way to make sure Todays Things Are Done Today.
They call Ernie Boxall and sign up for a personal 6 session introductory programme.
