Exercise Can Be Fun!

by Sharon Gayle May 16, 2017

Make Exercise Fun!


Working Towards a Specific Activity.


The more you exercise, become fit, and strong; the more exercise can become fun.  A seemingly simple Cartwheel, though not typically considered exercise, can put even the most avid gym-goer to the test. What type of test you ask?  Well though Cartwheels can be fun, they are not much fun if you don't have the balance, coordination, flexibility, and strength, to do one. Though, having the ability to laugh at yourself and have fun as you repeatedly fall over when trying to master the cartwheel movement, is in itself, a healthy state of being. :-)


Sometimes fun takes a little balance and coordination ...but it will be worth it!

Therefore, if there is an outdoor activity that you would like to do to break the periodic monotony of being in the gym; envision and analyze it, and think about the ways in which the gym can help you prepare for that specific activity.  From then forward, when you are grinding away on the Stepmill (wandering why on earth am I doing this to myself?) snap back to reality and visualize yourself doing what you've long wanted to do ...going on a high intensity hike while enjoying the beauty of the outdoors and Fall foliage.

If you determine that you want to live a healthy lifestyle, but balk at the being in the gym 5-days per week for the rest of your life; make a plan. Get fit, get strong, improve your balance and coordination; and then once or twice per week, take your exercise out to the streets, or into nature.  There are so numerous outdoor activities that stimulate, strengthen, and provide cardiovascular improvement, but for most if not all, working out in a gym environment will provide the foundation exercise, strength gains, and cardiovascular improvement necessary to better participate in these activities.

Some example of fun outdoor activities are:

  • White Water Rafting 
  • Hiking 
  • Bowling
  • Golf
  • Horseback Riding
  • Swimming
  • Basketball
  • Skiing
  • Rock Climbing
  • Marathons
  • Scuba Diving
  • And the list goes on and on...

Now that you have a short list of activities that you could be enjoying if you had the physical ability to join in; pick one or two or three, and get busy in the gym.  And in no time, instead of being on the sidelines, you'll be out there participating and having a blast!!!

REMINDER: Just because someone else makes an activity or specific exercise look easy, does not mean it will be easy for you. Practice makes perfect, so analyze, strategize, and build the foundation that can make it happen! ~SharonGayle

Childhood Obesity Facts


More than Tripled...


The percentage of children with obesity in the United States has more than tripled since the 1970s. Today, about one in five school-aged children (ages 6–19) has obesity.


Correct portion size is a major compenent of keeping a childs weight, and fat %, within healthy norms.


Obesity is defined as having excess body fat. Overweight is defined as having excess body weight for a particular height from fat, muscle, bone, water, or a combination of these factors
. Body mass index, or BMI, is a widely used screening tool for measuring both overweight and obesity. BMI percentile is preferred for measuring children and young adults (ages 2–20) because it takes into account that they are still growing, and growing at different rates depending on their age and sex. Health professionals use growth charts to see whether a child’s weight falls into a healthy range for the child’s height, age, and sex.

  • Children with a BMI at or above the 85th percentile and less than the 95th percentile are considered overweight.
  • Children at or above the 95th percentile have obesity. Read More...

Stats & Facts - What’s on Your Plate?

by Sharon Gayle April 18, 2017

What’s on Your Plate?


MyPlate - USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans


In an attempt to battle the current obesity epidemic in the United States the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) decided to change the shape of the Triangular Food Pyramid to an image which it believed would better represent the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The new “MyPlate” symbol launched in June 2011 as the government’s new primary food group symbol.

MyPlate is an easy-to-understand visual cue to help consumers adopt healthy eating habits by encouraging them to build a “healthy plate”, consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The plate is divided into 4 sections, with a cup of dairy off to the right upper side. Each half of the plate has a split of about 60/40. On one side, the 60/40 split is between your Protein (40%) and your Grains (60%). The other side is your Fruit (40%) and your Vegetable (60%). Check out the new MyPlate image and link to current and relevant information which may help you with your efforts for balanced eating and a healthy lifestyle.

Sadly, though every effort is being made to reverse the Obesity crisis in the United States, Obesity numbers continue to rise. During the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States and rates remain high. More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) and approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years are obese. ~Sharon Gayle
