Workplace Fitness

I always knew this would catch on:

"In 2013, about 2,000 companies offered their employees fitness trackers, according to technology research company Gartner. In 2014, this rose to around 10,000.
By 2016, the firm predicts that most large companies - those with more than 500 employees - in both the US and Western Europe will offer fitness trackers with their programmes."

{"A lot of companies view [these schemes] as giving them a competitive advantage," says Ryan Martin, wearable technology analyst at 451 Research.}
{"They can improve overall employee wellness through data collection. They're not just making workplaces better, but decreasing unplanned leaves of absence."}

Exercise and Depression

Study after study show that exercising will make you less depressed.

Work and Fitness

A healthy lifestyle impacts every part of your day-to-day work environment. 

Losing weight or quitting smoking can save you big bucks on health insurance premiums and even land you a flat-panel TV.

Today the average American’s health insurance payments fluctuate once a year. Imagine if that rate changed each day, determined in part by a sensor-rich gadget on the wrist. Sound far fetched?

If you’re sitting down while reading this, you might want to stand up and pace the room. The next wave of wearables has nothing to do with tech upgrades. This time, it’s about insurance companies that want you to be more active.

Providing health-insurance benefits is key to employee retention, but rising costs can make this a challenge for small-business owners. Here are six options that may be able to help keep costs down.

One day soon, your company could hand you a fitness-tracking device as a gift.

Beginner Fat Burning Workout to Lose Weight in 4 weeks (Home Exercises)


Let me be the first to say that I'm not a big believer in joining a gym as a means to lose weight and/or improve cardio-vascular. Gym's generally are expensive, and more often than not tend to be a waste of resources if a person is not truly committed to finding their feet.  It's a great thought to believe that by owning a gym membership that you will get up and out, but the truth is you probably will not.

I believe you must commit to finding your feet before getting a gym membership. If you cannot find the will to simply get up and walk, ride, swim, etc, then going to gym everyday will quickly lose is luster. Spend a few weeks just on working on the mentality of of not being sedentary and then consider a gym membership if it will improve the quality of the time spent being less sedentary.

If you can't afford a gym membership, chances are you live in a city full of stairs, go up and down them. If you're in the country, find a hill and go up and down that hill. Walk/ride the streets, paths, roads. Swim. Play in the park with the kids. See if you can still make it across the monkey bars, and if you can't, keep at it until you can. Do your pushups, crunches, planks, lunges, squats, weights, yoga, martial arts, etc.

Fruits are tricky. Some people say don't eat any fruits but my doctor says fruits are ok. Vegetables are fantastic but fruits are tricky. 

Fruit juices are NOT ok, stay away from them unless it's unsweetened coconut water, or unsweetened lemonade.  Fruit juices will spike your insulin production instantly. Whole fruits though are absorbed over time and don't cause the same insulin spikes.  

Some people insist there's no difference, that fruits are sugars, but the science is clear, 2-3 fruits a day is healthy; preferably during the day and not at night   .
