If you want to grab yourself a present for Christmas and you are into health and fitness, a treadmill would be a perfect choice for your Christmas list. There are so many good options to choose from. The first thing you need to do is define your price bracket. Once you have this set you can go to a website like that from the Treadmill Reviewers and see what’s the best deal on offer. Their website address is:
You can start checking out reviews based on Brands or by budget. So why would you need a treadmill? The treadmill is one of the best exercises for maintaining fitness and losing weight. It has adapted superbly to the modern era and can now be adorned with internet enabled consoles. This means you can browse websites and even watch tv or listen to music as you work out.
Got a busy schedule? Then why not catch up on the latest stocks and shares at 6:45 am during your morning work out before hitting the interstate highway for work? Or how about catching up with the latest entertainment news as you enjoy burning up those calories?Modern Treadmills
Critics of the modern treadmill base their attack on the widely flawed argument that the treadmill is not effective for weight loss and can also be damaging to your health. In the modern era of gruesome cardio training they think the treadmill is now defunct. How untrue. They are basing their research on outdated training programs. The type where you steadily jog for 30 mins at 7 mph and wonder why you don’t lose any weight after 3 months and end up getting bored and jack in the treadmill routines.
This is lazy training. But you don’t have to push a sled full of weights about on the ground to give yourself buttocks and hamstrings like Thor. This can all be achieved by modern training tactics like high intensity training, and making effective use of the ramp during treadmill sessions. The death of the treadmill will not be arriving soon at a home or gym near you. The key to the treadmills longevity has always been its willingness to adapt throughout the decades.
Not only do you now have modern entertainment features and high end audio speakers built into some models, but the cushioning in today’s treadmills is now fantastic. The higher up the price scale you go, the better quality the feel our treadmill will offer. The upshot of this is your joints and muscles will take less impact and will feel less sore the day after your workout. Counter in the fact that if you have one in your home you can train anytime that suits you, and throughout all weather patterns (apart from maybe a tornado or earthquake!) you have a very versatile training partner. All you need is the motivation – and if this is a problem the latest treadmills have a feature called iFit.
iFit is an online app that connects to the console on your treadmill. You can then start up a program where a personal trainer will pump your through your workout. If you get bored with that iFit will also control your treadmill and program a route in of your choosing. The ramp will then rise up and fall as it takes you through a designated route. The treadmill has embraced the future marvellously.

5 Effective Exercises for Dealing with Joint Pain
This article conveys 5 of the best types of exercise to deal with joint pain and assesses the benefits of each one in turn. Furthermore, a comprehensive guide on joint pain is given and intertwined with the different types of exercise elucidated within the article.

arthritis joint pain relief
Joint pain is something that is not very nice to have to live with. It can be quite painful and unfortunately many people across the world are afflicted with the disease which is called Arthritis. It can be caused by many things although the predominant cause is overuse of joints, ironically from exercise. However, a poor diet can often be to blame as well due to the multitude of toxins which can enter the body from processed food. It is not a good thing to deal with although exercise can really improve the prospects of someone who has Arthritis in quite a big way. It can boost the mood of someone with Arthritis and also build the joints back up in quite a significant way, with benefits specific to each type of exercise.
5. Cycling
Cycling is a good sport to build the muscles and keep in shape. It is particularly beneficial for Osteoarthritis, a common knee complaint as the knees and legs are the ones which are most commonly stimulated by cycling. It also helps to keep the immune system regular and ‘lubricate’ joints as they can become brittle with Arthritis but cycling can really help to give them their suppleness back and make joints more flexible. Care should still be taken when cycling though not to go too heavy on the bike as too intense cycling may actually jar muscles and be a little bit of setback for someone recovering with the condition. Cycling also makes someone sweat quite a lot so the toxins which Arthritis feed off can be released and rendered extinct in the long run.

joint pain yoga
4. Yoga
Yoga provides an all-round workout which provides the body with a workout which is commensurate with what it needs. Yoga is not particularly intensive and it can be quite a stress relief as well as good for arthritis joint pain relief. Furthermore, it can be done by the user for a reasonable amount of time as it is not the most strenuous of activities. It is quite pleasurable as it is done in a social environment and studies have linked it to greater levels of well-being and happiness due to the serotonin that it releases. If patients wish to burn off even more calories than they should try bikram yoga which is done in quite hot conditions to make people sweat and use their body more.
3. Running
Running has long been derided as an activity which potentially could cause arthritis due to fatigue & its stress on the knees and pounding the pavements may not be the best particular type of exercise if you suffer from Arthritis which is quite deep-set. However, it can be useful in the correct doses at building muscles up and keeping them supple. It should be done on relatively flat terrain as going up hills may not be the best option as it could place strain on the knees.
2. Football (Casually)
Like running, football needs to be moderated so that it does not have too much of an effect on the body and induce or even worsen symptoms of arthritis. The emphasis should more be on recreation and fun rather than physical contact. Cardiovascular energy should be a key facet of any footballing activity rather than clattering into each other. This is why small-sided games may be more beneficial than a competitive 11-a-side match. Football can really speed up the metabolism and it is also good fun as well.

swimming for joint pain relief
1. Swimming
Probably the best physical activity is swimming for those with arthritis should undertake as it is not physically demanding if users pace themselves and do not exert too much energy. It gives the joints (arms and legs) a good workout and the movements which arms and legs go through in this activity are conducive to building up their strength.
Essentially, there are many activities and exercise which one can pursue to alleviate and even prevent some of the symptoms of arthritis.

Healthy Breakfast

We all know that one of the most important meals of the day is your breakfast. Being a Mum I wanted my son to start the day in a healthy way so he start his day with a healthy formula 1 shake from Herbalife. I can mix the shake with fresh fruit, fruit juice, milk, soya milk, almond milk, rice milk.

easy vegan recipes

Recently I also bought a juicer so I can mix vegetable and fruit, although during school days it’s quicker and easier to just mix the Herbalife Formula 1 with any of the above liquids. Child obesity is a major issue and it breaks my heart when I see young children being overweight and knowing that unless their parents change their eating habits and increase their physical activity level, it will only get worse.

How much to use in each shake depending on the child age

0-4: Shake 1 level dessert spoon per 80lbs (36kg) body weight.
4-8: 1/3 of adult dosage. (adult dosage 2 tablespoons mix in 250ml of above liquid)
8-12: 2/3 adult dosage.
12+: adult dosage 2 tablespoons.
