Wii Fit Guide

The Wii Fit is a game for the Nintendo Wii console. Instead of a hand-held controller, it uses something called a Balance Board. The Balance Board is a Wii Fit device that looks like a bathroom scale without the numbers, and a bit wider. It is wireless, so it just sits on the floor in the middle of your workout area where you can use it best. It detects pressure, and detects where the pressure is in relation to the center of the board. The Wii Fit game uses that pressure/location to figure out what motions you are performing during an exercise or game.

For example, during the Hula Hoop game, it asks you to move your hips in a circle like you are spinning a hula hoop. Your Mii character on the screen is spinning a hula hoop. The Balance Board can trace your balance as it shifts around in circles while you spin your hips. The faster you are shifting your weight, the faster the Mii character spins its hips (and the higher and faster the hula hoop spins).

As another example, during Step Aerobics, the game has you moving through a routine of stepping on and off of the board. If you are supposed to move your right foot off the board, it can detect how your weight is shifting as you lift your right foot and move it off. It is sophisticated enough to detect that you have lifted the wrong foot, and sometimes it can even detect if you moved your right foot to the right of the board when you are supposed to move it back, based on the way your body’s balance shifts on the board.

There are 4 categories of Wii Fit games: Yoga, Aerobics, Strength and Balance Games. The Yoga games are designed for increasing balance, flexibility, and core strength. It uses many of the standard Yoga poses that you would encounter at a local Yoga class. The Aerobics games force you to get your heart-rate up. Strength exercises build muscles in the various groups. Balance Games aren’t exercises…they are just plain fun. For example, the ski jump forces you to squat down as you race down the ramp, and stand up quickly to take off (otherwise you simply fall off the ramp).

Home Fitness Guide

Gladiator Body Workout (GBW) is a home fitness program developed by Coach Eddie Lomax which effectively combines bodyweight and dumbbell training. Bodyweight training allows you to burn fat and improve strength endurance, while Dumbbells are ideal for mass and strength gain.

5 Reasons Why I Like Gladiator Body Workout:

  1. All the workouts are high-intensity, which means you’re guaranteed to boost your metabolic rate and in turn burn a lot of fat. There’s no room for boring strength workouts or cardio with this program. In fact, CoachLomax is somewhat “Anti-Bodybuilding.”
  2. As mentioned in the first point, there’s no boring, steady state cardio to perform. When you combine bodyweight and dumbbell training, you get the effect of cardiovascular training. These workouts will really make your heart rate go crazy.
  3. All the workouts can be performed with only your bodyweight and a dumbbell. Dumbbells can be purchased for cheap from Craigslist or eBay. The average price of dumbbells at your local sports equipment store is about .50 cents per pound.
  4. High intensity workouts means that you can perform them within a short period of time. I love short, intense workouts. Short workouts will save you a lot of time and you’ll find yourself spending less time working out, but getting better results than if you were to go to the gym and follow a typical bodybuilding workout.
  5. Finally, the workouts are fun and challenging. The key to really taking your training to the next level is keep using different intensity techniques, and that is exactly what CoachLomax does with this program.

Fitness Guide For Children

Modern trends indicate that more and more children are becoming obese. The factors that have contributed to this trend are varied yet the most predominant is the fact that children are not engaging in physical activities that will keep them from accumulating excessive weight. However your child does not have to be part of these statistics because they can develop fitness habits as young as they are and will certainly grow up to be healthier individuals than their counterparts. It is recommended that children engage in physical activity for at least 1 hour in a day, this is especially true for the long holiday seasons. Younger children should be encouraged to play around in games that will physical engage them instead of playing video games the whole time.

Older children who are obese or are showing a propensity toward this condition should also be encouraged to participate in physically engaging activities. These include adopting a sport that they could fancy or just taking long walks, biking and going for summer camps and other adventures. These are activities that will not only take off the fact but will also go along way in healing the emotional aspects of their eating disorders. Signing up your child for gym classes may be a little bit costly but if you have the resources then this is an extremely great idea. Here they will get to meet other kids who are in the process of keeping fit and you will be surprised at the positive outlook your child may develop after attending such invigorating classes.

It has been said over and over again that the eating habits of the family have a significant impact on the wellness and fitness of the children. Therefore it is advisable that as a parent you lead by example by preparing meals that will contribute to the well-being of your children. There are numerous online resources that offer free meal plans that will you organize the nutritional intake of your children.
