R Fit Monthly Bulletin – November 2017
The Season to Be Thankful!
First of all, we’d like to say that it is exciting to be publishing our very first monthly bulletin. These bulletins will be produced during the first week of each month. We aim to keep you connected and informed about what’s new, who’s new, what our schedule looks like for the month, a monthly goal, and a health and wellness article to keep you motivated to stay healthy in mind, body, and spirit. We’d also love to highlight some of your photos and success stories in our bulletin, so if you’d like to send us your story, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may also be contacting you should we see a tremendous amount of motivation in your story that could benefit us all! Mahalo nui iā ‘oukou!
The Benefits of Being Fit
When coming to R.Fit, you may often hear Personal trainer, Reno, say “When I’m an old man, I want to be able to squat onto a toilet and lift my grandchildren up with one hand! That’s why I stay healthy. That’s why I work out!” He’s not far from the truth. A study conducted on over 100 university students (both sedentary and physically active), show that physical activity decreases mortality and increases psychological health when one reaches the ages of 50-70 years old (Demirel, 2016). The American Academy of Pediatrics supports strength and resistance training which increases skeletal muscle mass and leads to whole-body glucose disposal capacity (Tompkins, C.; Soros, A.; Sothern, M.; Vargas, A., 2009). In other words, physical activity including resistance training, aerobic exercise, and behavioral modification (choosing to live and eat healthy), which are all done at R.Fit Hawai‘i, decreases the risks of heart problems, diabetes, cancer, obesity, hypertension (high blood pressure), bone and joint disease, and depression by over 50% (Warburton, D.; Nicol, C.; Bredin, S., 2006).
It is not enough to only be active. It is also very important to, while training, prevent soreness and any possible injuries by being conscious of your work outs. Be present and focused during all activities as your safety is very important. Flexibility training and stretching, which includes foam rolling, is one of the best ways to prevent chronic muscle and joint disorder (Tompkins, C. et al, 2009). So, make sure you foam roll before and after class!
