I just viewed the most profound video on Facebook which spurred this post The video portrays the evolution of heart disease and the causative effects of bad eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle from early childhood until adulthood. A shocking video, so watch at your own risk.  The video spurred some emotion in me as my company, RXFitnesspros has a plethora of young to middle age clients with heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and orthopedic issues. Many of them have undergone Coronary Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery,have had strokes (CVA) and or on copious amounts of medicines to  try to stabilize there particular health issue. Unfortunately taking prescription meds often come with a big price. Lots of side effects leading to lethargy, depression, low libido and weight gain.  Is this the life you signed up for?

Unfortunately,  early heart disease  is a grim reality which todays youth are now facing. Consuming processed foods laden with  high sugar, fat, sodium and cholesterol is a huge problem. The youth of today are making almost no effort to eat clean and healthy. They claim to be too busy. Is this the sign of progress or regression in America?

According to the American Heart Association 787,000 Americans died from Heart disease or stroke in 2011, That’s equivalent to 1 out of every 3 deaths in America. About 2,150 Americans die every day from heart disease or about 1 person every 40 seconds.. Sad but true, cardiovascular disease claims more lives than all types of cancers combined..

The causative life factors are 1. Smoking 2. Inactivity 3. Unhealthy eating habits,

So what can be done to reverse the negative ramifications of unhealthy behaviors?

1. Make a decision to change or die.

2. Seek help from a professionals who excels at changing unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. A nutritionist, personal fitness trainer, a medical exercise specialist,  and perhaps a physician to monitor your internal medical health progress periodically.

As a 50 plus year old San Diego personal trainer, I can can say with conviction, that the human body requires more maintenance in its 50s than in our 40s and 30s. Like a car that has lots of mileage on the odometer, some intervention and big changes need to take place. It’s a must for those who live a sedentary lifestyle, as well as those who are very physically active such as myself.

If you are sedentary the ramifications occur primarily form an internal body systems perspective. One gains physical fat weight, damaging the liver, heart, kidneys and pancreas. the medical ramifications can entail high blood pressure, fatty liver disease, diabetes mellitus, coronary artery disease, cancer and osteoarthritis. For more information check out the research on the most comprehensive study on medical risk factors leading to death. The Framingham Study Moreover the human joints suffer the massive assault of arthritis from carrying around excess weight in the form of fat. All these debilitating situations will lead to a very uncomfortable lifestyle, often accompanied by pain, disability and depression. It really doesn’t have to be that way with a proper shift in your mindset. knowledge is power!

The second scenario, I see quite often, which is the physically abused athlete who has trained improperly or excessively dangerous. Example your triathletes, marathoners and ultra distance athletes. Too much fanatical levels of exercise has a bone crushing joint compromising deleterious effect. the end result is unstable joints, chronic pain and eventual migration to the wheel chair at an earlier age than your sedentary counterparts. I personally have experienced the ramifications of overtraining, until I finally saw the light and made some abrupt changes. I spent 12 years as a competitive Ironman triathlete. Yes, this San Diego personal trainer is subject to orthopedic health problems too!

Exercise is about maintenance of structure and function  in all planes of movements, frontal, saggital and transverse planes. This is how human beings work. many studies have show that doing on specific form of exercise in a single plane does more harm than good on the human body. the end result is muscle imbalance and compromised joints. At RXfitnesspros, we condition human bodies in all planes and focus on your areas of weakness.

Now is the time to focus on patching the leaky boat and keep your bodies healthy strong and functional for the next 40 years of your life. For the athlete too!  Life is about balance and keeping all body systems in homeostasis.

At Rxfitnesspros.com we work with a plethora of human beings, who chose to climb out of their personal doldrums  and make something better at their physical lives. We are here to guide, educate and integrate a new lifestyle that you can live with forever. Life is too short to allow yourself to fall apart..

Nanci Goedecker, Orange Counties best personal trainer lives the early morning seize the day lifestyle. How she does it is a mystery for all. Now find out her hidden secrets!

There is a lot of truth to the idea that exercising in the morning translates to success in life. Early rising is a common trait among CEO’s, political leaders and other influential people. And morning people, according to Inc. Magazine, have been found to be more productive and proactive. So what are some things you need to do to make this happen?

Start with planning the night before. Go to bed at a time that will allow you to rise before your alarm wakes you up in the morning. Visualize exactly what you are going to be doing when you wake up in the morning so you hardly have to think about it – including how long it takes to drive to the gym, or wander into the spare bedroom for yoga poses. Have your clothes laid out and ready to go. If this is your first go round at it, aim for a short workout, say, of a set of pushups and sit-ups just to get used to moving early in the morning and slowly increase the amount of time and reps each time. Don’t forget to eat something and hydrate – have it ready to grab when you wake up.

Remind yourself that the time spent moving your body before the sun comes up translates to a boost of energy throughout out the day and a sense of accomplishment that will flow over into the rest of your day. Without forgetting that good habits require consistent commitment, you also won’t have to push yourself at the end of a mentally and physically tiring day to exercise, or even miss a workout entirely. And, you’ll have more time at the end of the day to pursue other pursuits or pleasures. Early to bed, early to rise…makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise!

As a San Diego Personal Trainer and Medical Exercise Specialist with 18 years of  expertise in dynamic weight loss for the morbidly obese, I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt; You will NEVER lose weight just by motoring through a 30- to 60 minute session of low to moderate cardio intensity.  This cardio method is known as steady state cardio.

In order to induce super lipolysis or fat expression from fat cells you need high levels of norepinephrine or adrenaline to chemically promote a fat burning effect. Just because your dripping in sweat doesn’t mean your sweating off the fat pounds.

Lypolysis will actually drain fat cells of fatty acids and glycerin. The end result is desiccation of a once hyperplastic fat cell.

In order to ignite the adrenals to produce norepinephrine to acceptable fat loss levels you need to amp up your heart rate to at least 80% of your heart rate maximum. This is optimally done with Interval training and HIIT.  This is where an exceptional personal trainer comes in. A great trainer can produce a safe and effective program to make fat loss a reality. In most cases mere mortals cannot push themselves to the brink of physical exhaustion, without going over the edge and getting nauseated and or injured.

It is important that you properly calculate your heart rate thresholds according to your age , gender, if you have a specific health conditions and or if your on any heart rhythm  altering medicines. Sure you can use the standard Karvonen formula to determine this magic number, but I wouldn’t recommend it. In many cases it is grossly incorrect and one shoe doesn’t fit all.

What I can promise you, is if you’re in the gym, comfortable looking around or perhaps chatting up people while you’re doing your cardio, you’re not doing a damn thing for fat burning or weight loss.  Stay tuned for my next post where I give a more detailed program for cardio weight loss.  It is important to remember that weight loss needs to approached in a methodical scientific approach. It is a system which requires 100% mental focus and execution.
