Every year, there is a convergence of behavior across much of the country that can have negative health consequences. For decades, health experts, fitness trainers, nutritionists and exercise physiologists generally agree that in order to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight you should eat more to lose weight. Inside that message however are some cautions. First, eat more means eating 5-6 small meals per day vs. 2-3 large meals. Second, eating the right foods is key and we all know right foods from wrong foods.
During the holidays, people have no problem eating more…but they forget the #1 daily task they need to maintain is, movement. So, that old saying of “eat more to lose weight” should be re-written as “eat more – move more, and lose weight. So, during the holidays, when you have a tendency to eat more, just remind yourself to move more too.
Every movement counts. That means if you do 5-minutes of activity, it counts. Exercise is cumulative. That means, if you do 5-minutes three times a day, it has the equivalent health benefit of one 15-minute exercise session. Holidays are a great time to take walks with family or to do activities with family and friends. Moving more shouldn’t be difficult. Holidays usually mean eat more and move less as we settle into our homes more and relax.
The big challenge is finding the right products to help you move. It’s not uncommon for people to ask what exercise is the best. The most obvious answer is, the one that gets you to move. But, decades of research agree on one common conclusion…..the best exercise is strength + cardio. That’s what can demotivate people because they want a product that can do both at the same time so they can condense the amount of time away from family or make up for time when they are not able to go to their gym or club or spa.
3X3®FIT is an innovative fitness product that combines the benefits of both strength training and cardiovascular fitness. It also has one key feature that many fitness products don’t have….portability. You can’t take your treadmill or dumbbells with you when you travel. And, its very unlikely you will find a place to hang or connect your fitness straps. But, 3X3®FIT is a self-contained exercise product that combines the benefits of strength training, cardiovascular exercise, stretching, yoga and pilates.
The key to 3X3®FIT are the patented and weighted fitness rings. There is no other product like it. These fitness rings connect to tension cords but the innovation goes even further. The resistance from the tension cords, connected to the weighted fitness rings can either provide resistance or assistance…so they are called resist/assist tension cords.
No matter what health habit you choose, find something that you can do anytime, anywhere….even take it to your club as part of an overall healthy fitness routine. 3X3®FIT weighted fitness rings plus resist/assist tension cords are the ultimate in portability.
DON’T MAKE THE #1 HEALTH MISTAKE DURING HOLIDAYS….EAT MORE & MOVE LESS. DO THE RIGHT THING IF YOU EAT MORE BY COMMITTING TO MOVE MORE.
