CONTENT MANAGER, SSSPORTS.COM The ‘How To’ series continues on the Sun & Sand Sports Blog, and next up is aqua spinning. Also known as aqua biking, or aqua cycling, this is an underwater spinning workout that uses a stationary bike frame, which is submerged in a pool while the rider’s body remains above water. The essence of this form of fitness is a pedal workout, and the ‘aqua’ element gives the rider that extra resistance as they pedal against the flow of water, making the session that more challenging

5 Tips for Starting a Fitness Journey

5 Tips for Starting a Fitness Journey

Hardships usually end in lessons and mine was quite clear: the life we desire can be fully designed if we have the power and the patience and the gumption to “just do it.” This year-long period of time helped birth my life’s and company’s motto: not one eating plan or type of workout is universal; it is critical to find what works for us as individuals, and what works alongside our body-types, talents, abilities, personalities and so much more.

1. Be ready — like really, really ready
  • Like with most things, desire starts from within. Lean on others for great workout suggestions, and test the waters and see what piques your interest, but be really, really ready, from within, to work, sweat and begin this new phase of your life.

2. Patience is a virtue

3. Exercise is an actor while nutrition is the star of the show

  • Statistics vary when measuring the importance of nutrition vs. exercise when it comes to weight loss
  • The most important thing is that you stick to what works for you, and be patient in finding the most suitable way of eating. 
  • Don’t be afraid to have your favorite foods every once in a while!

4. Don’t stick to someone else’s workout “recipe” 
  • Not one workout “works” for everyone. Be persistent with your search. 
  • Some people swim, others run and some just lift weights. 
  • You’ll find what works for you, and it can even be a mix of all workouts in the world!

5. Don’t be afraid to pick up the weights

How to Get Fit at Home

How to Get Fit at Home

Get in shape without leaving the house

"In today's world, the reality of it is people don't have time to go to a facility every day anyway," he says. "And consistency is key."
  • Believe it or not, Steele says, at 24 Hour Fitness, they encourage folks to exercise at home as much as at the gym. 
  • This way, they are more apt to adopt fitness as a lifestyle. 
  • "The key thing is that you do something, somewhere, sometime," he says.
  • Steele and other fitness experts say it doesn't take much effort or money to design an effective workout program at home
  • Things like fit balls, dumbbells, exercise bands or tubing, and push-up bars are an inexpensive way to create a routine that works all the major muscle groups.

But even with no props or machines, you can build muscles and burn calories.
"If someone wants to get started, they could take a brisk walk, then do abdominal exercises and push-ups," says Richard Weil, MEd, CDE an exercise physiologist and WebMD Weight Loss clinic consultant.

The 5 Elements of Fitness

According to Steele, an effective fitness program has five components, all of which you can do at home:
  1. A warm up.
  2. A cardiovascular (aerobic) workout.
  3. Resistance (strength-building) exercises.
  4. Flexibility moves.
  5. cool-down.
A warm-up could be an easy walk outside or on a treadmill, or a slow pace on a stationary bike. For the cardiovascular portion, walk or pedal faster, do step aerobics with a video, or jump rope -- whatever you enjoy that gets your heart rate up.
The resistance portion can be as simple as squats, push-ups and abdominal crunches. Or you could work with small dumbbells, a weight bar, bands or tubing.

Benefits of bicycling

Benefits of bicycling

Why Going By Bicycle Is So Good For You.

As much as I ride my Bicycle and I don't use it for transportation as regularly as I should, which is something I've been trying to be better about over the years. I work from a home office, so daily Bicycle commuting isn't in the cards. But it is better for you and the environment. Market research figures show that we spend an average of almost an hour a day on our daily commutes. Tack on to that the 38 hours a year we spend stuck in snarled traffic. You’ll reap numerous rewards, including the following.
To get even more out of your riding, check out Selene's book on weight loss and staying healthy.

1.      A better body

·         Bicycle to work and you no longer need to make time to exercise.
·         Rack up just three hours of riding time per week, and you can slash your risk of heart disease and stroke in half.
·         Plus, you'll lose the gut and unwanted flab no diet required.

2.      More money

·         The average annual cost of keeping an automobile running: at least 3,000. The cost of a year's worth of Bike cycle less than 300.
·         The joy of saving more than two grand this year: priceless.

3.      Cleaner air

·         The number of communities that will fall out of compliance with the Clean Air Act is expected to triple within a decade.
·         Motorized vehicles are responsible for 70 percent of the carbon monoxide, 45 percent of the nitrogen dioxide, and 34 percent of the hydrocarbons people produce.

4.      It's getting easier

·         It's also the perfect time to start commuting, as many communities around the world are striving to make themselves more bicycles friendly.
·         If you're a new commuter, you'll likely have a few logistical details and Cycle store, such as routes and carrying bags, to sort out before actually making the trip.

5.      Protect Your Skin

·         Pedaling away the hours in the great outdoors is wonderful for your body and soul, but it can be a little tough on the skin.
·         Sun, wind, and chafing all can take their toll.

5 Benefits of Running on the Track

Today was a sunny, 57-degree day in Ohio. Unseasonably nice weather for early February. So I threw on my shorts and headed to a nearby track for some speed work.

While running, I thought about the many reasons I enjoy working out on a track. Here’s my list:
  1. It’s doesn’t take much time: It usually only requires about 45 minutes or less to get in a good workout.
  2. It’s not too hard on the knees: The rubber surface is a lot bouncier than the pavement.
  3. It helps improve racing speed: I’ve improved my racing times for the 10K, the half marathon and the full marathon in 2015. I attribute this in part to doing a weekly track workout most weeks of the year.
  4. You can do it while traveling: There are local tracks open to the public all over the place.
  5. There are NO HILLS: Even if you live in a city with lots of elevation, running on a track guarantees a completely flat run.

Best Running Shoes For Flat Feet

Best Running Shoes For Flat Feet

An overview of the special needs of runners with flat feet and a selection of the top running shoes to address flat feet running.

Let me start with the good news: if you have flat feet you can still be a very successful runner. You can manage to run injury free for a long time if you put the right attention to your training, your warning signs and your footwear.

Flat Feet

If you're looking at your foot, you'll know you have flat feet if you don't see any arch. The bottom of your foot, from your toes to your heel, is completely flat. If you do the footprint test, your print will look like a foot-shaped blob. You won't see an inward curve from your big toe to your heel.
Problem? If you're flat-footed, you're most likely an overpronator, which means that your feet roll inward when you run.
What to Buy: You will probably need a running shoe that maintains your stability. Look for the words "motion control" and "stability" on the box of running shoes you are considering. In addition to motion-control shoes, some flat-footed runners also need to wear cirrhotics (custom-made shoe inserts that correct foot issues).

Running Shoe Recommendations for Male Overpronators 

Here are five things that can help your flat feet.

1. Stretching

A tight calf muscle, medically termed Equines, is considered to be the most common cause of flat feet by many foot and ankle surgeons. The tight muscle transmits a pronating force on the foot, resulting in arch collapse.
A dedicated stretching program can alleviate the flattening effect. An effective stretch for the Achilles is the runners stretch. The yoga position downward dog is another great stretch for the back of the leg. 

2. Arch Strengthening Exercises

The foot has many muscles that are contained within it, meaning the muscles originate and terminate within the foot without extending into another part of the body.
The muscles are called intrinsic muscles and are generally on the bottom of the foot.
Simple exercises involve grabbing motions of the toes, such as picking up marbles or a handkerchief with the toes.

3. Shoe Inserts

Arch supports, or orthopedics, can extrinsically support or raise the arch. They work by aligning the bony structures into a better position, raising the arch and inverting the heel bone. Flat feet often feel better with inserts because the structural support is alleviating filamentous and muscular strain and spasms.

4. Go Barefoot

This is somewhat counter-intuitive as people generally believe that a flat foot needs support. When walking or training barefoot, the muscles of the foot become more active and grow stronger. Stronger muscles in the foot, theoretically, may translate into improved stabilization of the foot.

5. Surgery

Flat foot surgery may be an option for painful flat feet that have not improved with other measures.
Surgery for flat feet can be relatively simple or extremely complex, depending on the patient's age, the severity of the flat foot and its symptoms. Every flat foot is different, so it's important that the flat foot not be treated in a cookie-cutter fashion.
