    Eviction CrossFit brings focus on training, nutrition to Easthampton

    EASTHAMPTON — For many, an avid interest in mountain biking and triathlons would be enough exercise for a lifetime. Matthew Dusseault, however, could be considered an outlier. Six or seven years ago, while looking for ways to better improve his strength training, Dusseault turned to CrossFit. First, he started working out of his garage with friends in Chicopee. Eventually, after moving to Southampton, he built a gym on his property where he began to host classes. A neighbor took issue with his gym, and so Dusseault and his business partners used that as an opportunity to move into a new space: Although they did not technically get evicted from their old digs, Eviction CrossFit, at 1 Cottage St.

    To grow up healthy, children need to sit less and play more

    Children under five must spend less time sitting watching screens, or restrained in prams and seats, get better quality sleep and have more time for active play if they are to grow up healthy, according to new guidelines issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO). Failure to meet current physical activity recommendations is responsible for more than 5 million deaths globally each year across all age groups. Currently, over 23% of adults and 80% of adolescents are not sufficiently physically active. If healthy physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep habits are established early in life, this helps shape habits through childhood, adolescence and into adulthood. Applying the recommendations

    Fitness tracker: How many steps should you take in a day and at what pace?

    As recently as the 1950s, doctors considered exercise dangerous for people over age 40; for heart disease, which was then killing a record number of Americans, they prescribed bed rest. This was partly based on their concept of what “exercise” was: Early physiologists conducted studies on their (typically young, male) graduate students or on military servicemen — and in order to become more fit than they already were, these subjects needed to work out hard. That notion began to change with the 1968 publication of “Aerobics,” by Kenneth Cooper, an Air Force physician, who argued that anyone could take measures to prevent heart disease with regular “aerobic” exercise, like swimming or jogging, that increases heart rate and oxygen uptake, “improving the overall condition of the body” and thereby “building a bulwark against many forms of illness and disease.” But it was hard to tease apart whether physical activity made people healthier or whether healthier people were more likely to be active.

    Health: How to keep fit while of on business trips

    Most of my clients are extremely busy, high flying executives. It is pretty normal for them to crisscross across continents on a monthly basis. Since they are my clients, they are pretty serious about their health and fitness. I shall not lie to you but maintaining decent levels of fitness for a travelling executive is fairly difficult but not impossible. Eating hotel food, fatigue from travel, disrupted sleep all have an adverse impact on the body. The older you are, the worse the impact! But these harmful side effects can be ameliorated with having a plan and sticking to it. Some of the things that can help staying on track with your fitness goals are as follows: Being flexible: You may not

    PCLC, CCC working to improve health in Columbus area community

    I have the good fortune to represent Central Community College (CCC) on this coalition, and their mission is personally important to me. Two years ago, it came to my attention that I had all the risk factors for Type 2 diabetes. I realized walking my short-legged dachshund a couple days a week was not enough cardio, eating fat-free candy was not a good substitute for a healthy snack and replacing sleep with three diet, caffeine drinks was not exactly healthy. I learned so much from the NDPP course materials and facilitators about the health risks of diabetes and ways I could prevent the disease and I went to work to change my health. I logged my food, started a workout program with a personal
