Fitness is great!

Every week Marcus and James sit down and have a good old conversation about the wild world of fitness.

Here is a taste of who Marcus is and why we love having him join us on GetFitRadio.

Here are the show notes.

Let’s talk podcast 281 and why competing might be a good idea for some?-lets talk about the guy who went from huge to much smaller who is doing a tri? The woman who was in the games in Dubai… What has competing done for them?
OK we are not talking weight loss as the goals of working out and fitness, but for many it is a goal.  Why do we need more than this as a goal ? A big piece of this puzzle is when you hit your target you rebound… thoughts?
Can we look at exercises to help with lower back pain? This fits nice with #2!
What is the next challenge? Paleo Challenge!
New trend from Australia, walking meetings!
Why walking opposed to talking over coffee?AJ: First of all, getting outside and taking in the fresh, open air is such an amazing way to start the day. A lot of people just don’t have time to get out and enjoy it. We thought that it was pretty inspirational to put people outside in a beautiful environment and get them together with extraordinary women.When you’re sitting at a table drinking coffee, you may be writing notes the whole time and miss an opportunity to extend a conversation naturally. When you’re walking and not writing, you’re more open and aware. It also exercises your brain because you have to actually remember things rather than write them down. I think that helps deepen the relationships, and, therefore, lets you get a lot more out of it.Also, walking side by side (opposed to sitting face to face) can make the environment feel a lot more casual. It lets people’s guard down a bit. I find that in my business, if we have to have a tough conversation, we go for a walk.

Sport chafing is such a real thing, any tips
Sitting is a huge issue! We need to exercise, move more. who spend a lot of time (more than 4-6 hours per day) sitting down have a higher risk of a wide range of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorder, obesity, and premature death. Women tend to be more sedentary as they grow older, and people of a higher education level also trend toward more sedentary lifestyles. The sad truth is that our modern lifestyle makes it all but impossible to avoid sitting down. You have to sit at your office desk to work, and it's nice to relax on the couch or in bed after a stressful day at the office. But what you can do is replace some of your more sedentary habits with active ones. For example, consider cycling or walking to work if you live close to your office. Instead of sitting down for six hours straight, walk around every hour for 5-10 minutes. Spend your lunch break walking around. Consider getting a standing desk or a Walkstation. When talking on the phone or in a meeting, walk around instead of lounging at your desk. The more activity you do, the lower your risk of health problems as a result of sitting. Just the minimum amount of exercise isn't enough to "cure sitting". You're going to have to invest a lot more time and effort into being active if you want to avoid health problems as a result of your modern lifestyle.

16. Millennials! A whole different bunch!

Unlike earlier generations which considered working out to be more of a chore than enjoyment, Millennials look forwards to exercising. Studies show that Millennials think of working out as a way of socializing. Studies found that Millennials generally choose to work out with a partner or within groups, under the supervision of trainers who are within their age range.They are willing to make healthy choices when choosing what to eat. Forbes reported that Millennials are not only willing to pay for healthy food, they are also putting in the effort to go find it if it is not easily available. Generation Z (people less than 20-years old) are even more conscious of food ingredients and are willing to pay more for healthier meals than Millennials.What is Athleisure wear?Athleisure is a trend in fashion in which clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as during work, casual or social occasions. Athleisure outfits are yoga pants, tights and leggings that “look like athletic wear” and are characterized as “fashionable, dressed up sweats and exercise clothing“. The idea is that gym clothes are supposedly making their way out of the gym and becoming a larger part of people’s everyday wardrobes. By some accounts, the athleisure trend grew out of women wearing yoga pants. Another account suggests that the trend came about because people could wear them for multiple occasions without having to change, which meant greater convenience, since people did not have to carry an extra gym outfit on the way to the office, for example.WikipediaMillennials are so committed to gyms and exercise that the fashion industry had to introduce Athleisure wear with brands like Lotus Boutique, RYU Apparel and other millennial-centric focused brands; comfortable clothes designed for workouts that can be worn in other settings as well. Athleisure has become so normalized that it is no longer being referred to as a separate class of clothing.Redefining traditional work-out regimes, the Millennial WayMillennials have a distinct view on fitness and exercise. Previously, people would assume that a daily workout required you to stay in the gym for at least 2 hours every day, however, Millennials prefer alternate methods. Millennials are not using the traditional method to get fit. Simple cardio workouts are obsolete according to Millennials, instead, they have embraced high-intensity exercise methods that push their limits but do not need much time.
