Health and fitness has become the new religion as more and more people seek a better life free from costly and sometimes painful health issues. The sooner you can start watching your health the better you will be in living a better life. But when it comes to health and fitness, it is never too late to start making changes. The simplest of changes towards a better lifestyle can be all you need to see a difference in your health.
Because of the demands for better health, mobile applications related to fitness have been developed. Gone are the days when you needed to be at the gym to get yourself a rewarding workout. A personal trainer is necessary in guiding you through the process but this would mean going to where the trainer is. But with fitness apps available, you can now enjoy time and place convenience and still get maximum results from the time you spend on your fitness sessions. There are a number of reasons why you should consider getting a fitness app.
You have freedom to select the best app for you
App developers have embraced all areas of fitness and offer apps that suit the different needs of the users. When looking at the apps, you will realize that you can go for an activity tracking app, a diet and nutrition app or a workout and exercise app. To get the most from your efforts, you can choose to have each of the apps, so you are able to combine healthy dieting with healthy exercising to achieve optimum results with your health and fitness efforts.
You get a personal trainer wherever you are
Mobile apps make it possible for you to take your personal trainer wherever and whenever without an extra cost. This means that you will have the freedom to train from any given place and time as long as you have the needed app on your mobile device. There is so much flexibility in this and it cannot be compared to you having to go to a gym a health and fitness center to access the helpful insights and guidance of a personal trainer.
You enjoy some freedom with a fitness app
People are different. Whereas some do not mind training in a group, others feel a bit more comfortable training alone. Because it can be difficult to have a personal trainer all to yourself, especially as far as the rates go, you will love what an app can do for you. A fitness app allows you the freedom to exercise just like you like it and from a place that you are most comfortable. This way you are able to give every session your best so you can reach your fitness goals faster.

How Quickly Can You Get Fit After Years of Inactivity? March 30, 2017 13:21
Have you been inactive for years? Are you wondering how long it will take you to get fit?
The short answer is “It depends!” How fast you get into shape is directly related to your present physical condition, and how fast your body reacts to physical conditioning. For example, someone 10 pounds overweight, with no physical limitations, will get into shape a lot faster than someone 50 pounds overweight with Type II diabetes and bad knees.
Not only will it take the second person longer to get in shape, but he or she will probably need to use a different strategy. The second person may never get to the fitness level of the first one. But remember that it is not a competition. It is individual and doing anything is better than doing nothing.
Getting fit after years of inactivity is like taking a car out for a drive after it has been sitting for ten years. If you are a car aficionado, you know you wouldn’t get in, and see how fast you could max out the r.p.ms in every gear. You would baby it along and gradually get it up to speed. The body after years of “non-use” is similar.
You want to start slow and gradually work your way up the fitness ladder. The American Heart Association recommends that a good place to start is to exercise three to four times per week, 30 to 60 minutes each time, with a target heart rate of 50% to 60% of your maximum heart rate. To calculate your maximum heart rate take 220 – your age (for men) or 226 – your age (for women).
For example, the maximum heart rate for a 50 year-old man would be 170. Sixty percent of that figure would be 102 beats per minute. Increase your level of activity over a 6-week period eventually getting your target heart rate up to 70 to 80% (80% would be 136).
A good place to start is with a mix of cardio and strength training. Walking, running, playing tennis, biking and swimming are all good cardio activities that will get your heart rate up to your target range. Of course before starting your exercise routine, (and after getting the okay from your doctor), be sure to warm-up with stretching.
If you have bad knees, then substitute an elliptical trainer for walking or running. And don’t even think of playing tennis. With either cardio or strength training, adjust time/intensity and weight/repetitions to keep your heart rate in the appropriate range. With strength training, start out light on weight and repetitions and work up.
The other half of getting fit is eating right. While you are at the doctor getting checked out to see if you are fit enough to start an exercise program, ask about a nutrition plan. It will be different for you if you have to lose a lot of weight than if you are already at the proper weight for your height and age.
Getting fit is about setting a goal and then gradually working up to reach that goal. Focusing only on reaching your goal as quickly as possible is just asking for a debilitating injury which could set you back months.
