With summer in sight, more of us are feeling self-conscious about our bodies -- and will enjoy the season less as a result. That's according to a new survey commissioned by Anytime Fitness.
76% of the 1,000 respondents said that they feel the same or worse about their body image this year. Another 53% plan to "cover up everything they can" at the beach. That doesn't bode well for fun in the sun.
Let's be honest...there will ALWAYS be a reason why you can skip the gym, bail on that jog, or reach for that fistful of fatty food rather than the healthier option we know is better for us. These are the very reasons that most of us fight not on a weekly basis... nor daily... Nor hourly! I'm talking a MINUTELY basis. That's how often a majority of people are thinking about all the excuses not to take care of themselves and be active.
We're all busy. Whether you're working 8+ hour shifts, or are trying to get your kids to all their activities, there are days where finding time for healthy eating and exercise aren't going to happen. So we've pulled together 14 awesome tools to help ensure your health never takes a backseat. Are you ready?
Most people understand the basics of gym etiquette, like bringing a pair of clean gym shoes, wiping off the equipment when done, and not taking away from the quality of another's workout by using multiple pieces of gym equipment at peak times. Sometimes those rules are broken, and usually people are quick to recognize when an obvious gym etiquette has been broken. However, there is an unspoken set of workout etiquette, rarely mentioned, and these violations are good examples of what not to do in the gym.

Welcome to the New Year! Are you as excited as I am? Last week, I taught you the skills needed to create a solid resolution and the Anytime Health team created a worksheet that you can use to make your resolution a reality. But based on statistics, almost 50% of people will have abandoned or forgotten about their resolution by the end of the first week! In a few more weeks, half of the rest will have forgotten about their goals.
We all lead busy lives. Instead of making your life even more complicated, why not set a New Year’s Resolution that’s dead-simple? That’s the idea behind the #MoveYear2013 31-Day Challenge.

After weeks of eating, drinking, and being generally merry, it's time to start thinking about your new year's resolutions. Another year, and for many, another resolution or two. For most people, the resolution is the same each year: lose weight, get fit, eat healthier, reduce stress, and/or quit smoking. People make these resolutions at the beginning of each year and don't put together the right strategy/plan to make sure that they attain their goals. Changing behaviors and habits takes sufficient planning in order to succeed.
This time of year is stressful for many reasons. Two major holidays in one month is a lot to handle, especially when family get-togethers, food, baking, and presents are involved. In addition, a new year is starting and with that comes the pressure to make resolutions and get healthy. Plus, the kids are home from school and cold weather can make a lot of people stir-crazy. Add all of those things together and most of us have stress levels that are at least slightly elevated.
So, how about some tips to help us relieve some of that stress?
