Pedometers monitor your activity

The latest trend in monitoring exercise activity comes in the form of trendy colourful wrist bands such as the likes of Jawbone and Fitbit. They monitor stuff like steps, distance, calories burned and sleep quality. Great as a motivational tool but at a hefty price of around $130.00 they are expensive and require regular charging and connection to your smart phone or computer to get the data.

If this is all sounding very complex and you are looking for something quick, easy and accurate to measure your activity throughout the day or during your run or walk a pedometer is still a great device to monitor your exercise activity and it won’t set you back as much!

A pedometer does not require regular charging, you do not need a smart phone to see your activity and depending on the model4 colour afsdtc1 web pedometers can give you a multitude of information about your activity such as steps, distance, speed, calories, exercise time etc.

Our range of pedometers start at $19.95 for a simple step pedometer and go up to more advanced models including a pedometer built into a sports watch. We offer a minimum of 12 month warranty and some models have a 3 year warranty. Click here to see our full range.

5 Tips to Drinking for Peak Performance and Recovery this Winter.

Winter is here!  And for many of you this brings shivers of dread …and cold!

Not only is it really hard to get out of your warm bed into the cold dark mornings, it is also a challenge to get motivated to exercise in the cold outdoors. If youwater photo small do make it outside for your workout you’ll probably find it is, surprisingly, quite pleasant to be exercising in cooler temperatures without the effects of heat stress and dehydration.

However, it is easy to overlook the importance of staying hydrated because you tend to sweat less and don’t feel as thirsty but in actual fact exercising in the cold can impair your ability to recognise fluid loss and increase your fluid loss through respiration.

So it is just as important and, in fact, essential for your exercise performance and recovery to keep your body hydrated with regular water intake before, during and after your winter workout. [Read more…]

Back to basics.

Fitness seems to be travelling in two opposite directions.The general population is getting fatter and less fit, while an increasingly smaller population isback to basics improving their fitness in a more specialised way.

This raises the question of whether we need to get back to basics?

The more advanced and hi-tech we make fitness and the trappings of the fitness lifestyle, the more unlikely we are to attract those who need it most. The deconditioned, the disenfranchised…..those for whom it is all too intimidating, too hard.

Stinky yoga mat?

It’s no secret that Yoga has a ton of well-documented health benefits.  It has physical, mental and emotional benefits, including reduced blood pressure, enhanced feelings of relaxation, stress reduction, improved digestion, better posture, increased strength and flexibility and improved balance.

But all your enhanced feelings and relaxation can be seriously affected by a STINKY mat. There is nothing worse then having your nose inches away from a yoga mat that reeks especially when it’s not yours!

One way to clean up your yoga practice and make sure your mat stays smelling fresh so you can concentrate on your rhythmic yoga breath is by using a towel. A towel will cover your mat and soak up all your sweat and also protect you from the germs on a shared mat.

Our new Asana® Yoga/Pilates towel is designed to fit the standard mat (so is ideal for most gym mats too) and being made of microfibre it is ultra absorbent, quick drying and antibacterial. It is also easy care – you can throw it in the washing machine after each use. A corner zip pocket is designed to store your keys/phone.  Click here for more info.

 

Eat what you want, enjoy your Christmas, have fun and relax!

While Christmas is a time of eating, drinking and celebration, many of us quiver with dread at the thought of the extra kilos this time of year will add. But don’t despair – here are some tips that will help you navigate through all the extra calories without adding them to your waistline.

  1. Don’t skip meals – make sure you eat 3 normal meals on the day of the party. This means you won’t arrive at a party ravenously hungry and will prevent you eating everything in sight when you get there.
  2. Be a snob – that is a food snob! If you don’t love it – don’t eat it.
  3. Use a small dessert plate at a buffet – this will make sure you keep portions small.
  4. Drink lots of water and at least a glass of water between each alcoholic beverage.
  5. Plan exercise into your day of festivities – but be realistic! Aim to do 30 mins of exercise rather then an hour. And it doesn’t have to be at the gym. Walking instead of driving where you can, take the stairs instead of lifts, walk with the family to look at Xmas lights, play with the kids.

But most of all enjoy your day, have fun and relax!

Wishing you and your families a magical Christmas and a New Year filled with excellent health, peace and abundant joy.
