Summer Body Slim-Down: 5 Ways to Avoid Quitting Gym Memberships this Summer


Chino Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) June 03, 2015

Fit Body Boot Camp is America’s fastest growing and most popular boot camp fitness program. The company helps thousands of individuals across the country lose weight and live happier, healthier lives. To encourage more people to hit the gym and get the fitness results they want the company has released these five tips for getting the most out any gym membership:

Tip #1 – Don’t do it Alone

The hardest part about committing to gym memberships is saying motivated and on track. Attempting to overcome these challenges alone is often extremely difficult.

The best way for anyone to stay motivated and inspired is exercising with friends who hold each other accountable and professionals who can teach and encourage.

Fit Body Boot Camp overcomes this obstacle with its class format and personal trainers. These two elements allow bootcampers to stay accountable by exercising with friends and stay motivated with the instruction of professional trainers.

Tip #2 – Can’t Out-Train a Bad Diet

Exercise alone cannot bring real results without proper nutrition and diet. But most gyms or fitness centers offer come kind of nutritional guidance for clients seeking such assistance.

All Fit Body Boot Camp training packages offer nutritional consultations and advice at no additional charge. Getting this sort of help is the best way to learn healthy habits and ensure weight loss results.

Tip #3 – Mix it Up Every Day

One of the most common reasons why most gymgoers end up quitting their gym memberships is sheer boredom. Everything starts off exciting, but repetitive workouts get old fast!

Try mixing things up and using all the resources a gym has to offer. Fit Body Boot Camp does this by planning completely new and unique workouts every single day. This allows bootcampers to target different areas of the body, avoid weight loss plateaus, and never get bored with Boot Camp.

Tip #4 – Don’t Waste Time

On the simplest level most people quit going to the gym simply because they can’t stand being there. It’s not an enjoyable atmosphere for many but there’s an easy response to this situation: spend less time at the gym.

Many believe they must spend hours at the gym every day in order to see results when, in reality, a 30-minute workout is plenty of time to get in shape and drop pounds— as long as it’s the right kind of workout, that is.

Fit Body Boot Camp workouts are only 30 minutes long yet because of their intensity and because of the Afterburn effect, Fit Body Boot Camp workouts burn hundreds of extra calories during and after a workout.

Tip #5 – Choose the Best Option

What many first time gymgoers don’t realize is that the world of fitness contains a plethora of options for getting in shape and losing weight. An ordinary big box gym membership simply isn’t right for most people.

The best way to avoid quitting the gym is choosing the right fitness option in the first place. When someone starts with the option that’s best for them their less likely to get discouraged, lose motivation, or get burned out.

Explore every available option and choose the best fit.

Conserve Water and Still Have a Beautiful Garden and Landscape This Season


Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) April 24, 2015

Too much or not enough water and never when it’s needed. That seems to be the long time plight of gardeners. Add to this extended droughts, flooding and watering bans. What is a gardener to do? Consider becoming a waterwise gardener, says gardening expert and author Melinda Myers.

“Waterwise is not just about growing drought tolerant plants or eliminating plantings,” says Myers. “It’s a holistic approach to managing water in order to avoid flooding that overwhelms sewer systems, improper watering that wastes water and poor landscape designs that generate too much work and require too many resources.”

According to Myers, gardeners can incorporate a few waterwise habits into their gardening routine which is good for the garden, pocketbook and environment. She suggests starting with one or more of these strategies this year.

Select the right plant for the growing conditions. Plants that thrive in normal growing conditions will be healthier, require less care and need less water. Look for drought tolerant plants that require less water once established.
Keep water out of storm sewers and in the garden instead. Prevent flooding, while improving the garden. Adding several inches of compost to the top 8 to 12 inches of soil increases the soil’s ability to absorb and retain water. This means less runoff into the storm sewers and less frequent watering.
Use plants to prevent runoff and conserve water. Plant trees, shrubs, and groundcovers to slow the flow of rainwater, increase the amount of water that stays in the landscape for the plants, and to filter water before it enters the groundwater. Install one or more rain gardens to intercept surface water runoff for use by rain garden plants and to help recharge the groundwater.
Provide plants with a healthy diet. Use a slow release non-leaching organic nitrogen fertilizer like Milorganite. It encourages slow steady growth, so plants will require less water and be less prone to insect and disease problems. Plus, the slow release nitrogen encourages healthy growth and does not prevent flowering and fruiting.
Water wisely. Water plants thoroughly and only when needed. Water the soil, not the plant, using a watering wand, drip irrigation or a soaker hose, so less water is lost to evaporation. Water early in the morning whenever possible to reduce water loss during the heat of the day and diseases caused by wet foliage at night.
Manage lawns to reduce water use. Select drought tolerant grass varieties to reduce watering needs. Prepare the soil before seeding or sodding or aerate and spread a thin layer of compost over existing lawns to increase water absorption and reduce runoff. Mow high to encourage deep roots that are more drought tolerant and pest resistant. Allow lawns to go dormant during hot dry weather. If irrigating, water thoroughly when needed, that’s when footprints remain in the lawn.
Conserve water and reduce time and money spent on plant care. Mulch the soil around trees, shrubs and other plants with several inches of woodchips, shredded leaves, evergreen needles or other organic material. Mulching reduces watering frequency, prevents soil compaction from heavy rainfall thus increasing water absorption. It also adds organic matter to the soil as it decomposes.
Repair leaking faucets, fittings and garden hoses. A slow leak of one drip per second can waste up to nine gallons of water per day.
Look for and use wasted water. Collect the “warming water” typically wasted when preparing baths and showers. Use a five-gallon bucket to collect this fresh water and use it for gardens and container gardens. Collect water from dehumidifiers and window air conditioners for use on flowering plants. Do not, however, use this water if environmentally harmful solvents have been used to clean this equipment.
Check with the local municipality, if considering the use of gray water. Once it’s used for washing clothes, dishes or people, water is classed as “gray water” and most municipalities have guidelines or regulations related to its use.
Harvest rainwater if the local municipality allows it. The ancient technique of capturing rainwater in jugs, barrels and cisterns has made a comeback. Collecting rain when it is plentiful and storing it until it is needed is one way to manage water for the landscape. But first check local regulations before installing a rain harvesting system. Several states have banned rain harvesting, while others offer rebates or rain barrels at a discount to gardeners.

Show the Love for Pets This February


Millville, NJ (PRWEB) February 17, 2015

One in five Americans took their pets into consideration when purchasing gifts for Valentine’s Day, according to a study by the National Retail Federation. Animal lovers can show pets some extra affection this month by also celebrating National Love Your Pet Day Friday, February 20.

During the month of love and every day, make sure pets are healthy, happy and secure. Appreciate pets for their loyalty with these top five ways to #LoveYourPet this February:

Keep them safe: Pets can play with things that are harmful if swallowed. It’s the duty of the pet owner to make sure that pets have an environment that is safe to play in. Remove dangerous materials such as string, ribbon, rubber bands and small children’s toys to pet proof a house.

Chemicals on lawns can pose a risk to lovable pets, too. Use an organic, pet-friendly lawn food, like the Espoma Organic annual feeding program, to ensure lawns look beautiful and pets’ paws stay safe.

Take pets for a walk: On average, dog owners walk their dogs 300 minutes per week according to the SPCA. Help pets to build confidence and trust, lose weight and reduce problem behaviors by taking them for a walk today. Exercise provides numerous health benefits for both pets and their owners.

Give them something to play with: Toys help fight boredom, burn off energy and prove comforting for dogs and cats left alone. They can even help prevent pets from developing certain problem behaviors. Take 10 extra minutes to play tug-a-war or surprise pets with a new toy.

Teach them a new trick: Teaching pets a new trick and rewarding them with praise and affection is a great way to express love. Teach pups how to give a high-five or cats how to fetch.

A simple belly rub: The easiest way to show affection is with a simple pat or cuddle. Scratch behind their ears and snuggle up together.

Show pets extra love this month and they’ll return the favor the entire year!

The Espoma Company has been the pioneer in natural gardening solutions since 1929. Espoma provides an extensive selection of natural products that work in harmony with nature and are safe for people, pets and the planet. The company produces more than 100 products to cover the nutritional needs of plants and to grow beautiful lawns and gardens.

Dr. Kit Robinson Welcomes New Patients for Dental Implants This New Year, Without Referrals


Hahira, GA (PRWEB) January 14, 2015

This New Year, Dr. Kit Robinson began accepting new patients without a referral for dental implants at his Hahira, GA practice. Dental implants are an effective alternative to temporary dentures. More durable than many temporary forms of tooth replacement, modern implants bond with the jawbone to create a stable base for permanent new teeth that look and feel natural. With good dental hygiene and care, the teeth can last a lifetime with none of the hassles of bridgework or temporary dentures.

The versatility of the dental implants Dr. Robinson places in Hahira, GA allow them to serve as a practical solution for those who are missing one or more teeth in any part of the mouth. With one implant post, the doctor can create a crown to replace a single missing tooth. Two posts allows for bridges that fill a gap of multiple missing teeth. With a few strategically placed posts in positions of maximum bone density and strength, Dr. Robinson will create a new permanent set of teeth that can last for the patient’s lifetime with proper home care and dental cleanings.

Temporary dentures, that have been a traditional solution for those who are missing all teeth on the top or bottom jaw, are associated with many challenges, such as:


    Requires messy pastes or gels to try to hold denture in place
    Food stuck under denture smells unpleasant and irritates gums
    Diet often limited to soft foods that are easy to chew
    Pressure on gums can damage delicate tissue
    Lack of stimulation for jawbone leads to reabsorption (loss) of bone
    Slipping and clicking while talking or eating

The dental implants that Dr. Robinson uses in Hahira, GA are generally made of titanium, a metal that bonds effectively with natural bone to provide firm support for a new tooth or set of teeth. Anchored to the bone like natural teeth, the new replacements do not shift or slip and allow for a complete healthy diet of all types of food.

Dental implants in Hahira, GA are changing lives and eliminating the bother of temporary dentures with a simple office procedure. Consultation with Dr. Robinson is the first step to determining an individual’s unique dental treatment needs and to determine the best course of action. For those who are ready to start the New Year with improved oral health, there is no time like now to think of the teeth.

About the Practice

Robinson Family Dentistry is a general practice offering personalized dental care for patients in Hahira, GA. Dr. Kit Robinson is passionate about dentistry and enjoys using his expertise to improve the oral health of his patients. Dr. Robinson received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Kentucky Dental School, and believes in continuing education to deliver the latest in dental technology. To learn more about Robinson Family Dentistry or the services that Dr. Robinson provides, please visit his website at http://www.kitrobinsondmd.com or call (229) 794-3003 to schedule an appointment.







Keep Weight Loss Goals on Track This Holiday Season with Secrets from the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center


Aurora, Colo. (PRWEB) December 23, 2014

The University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colo. is home to a unique brand of weight loss transformation where mindset is just as important as diet and fitness. Holly Wyatt, MD is the center’s associate director and co-author of “State of Slim”, the book that teaches dieters how to create their own state of slim no matter where they live.

Wyatt’s weight loss programs are based on 30 years of science and research and teach principles from the book including the Colorado diet and the Colorado mindset. Her new weight loss program, Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp, was a sell-out success in October and boot camp dates for March, June and July of 2015 have just been announced.

These tips from Dr. Wyatt help her program participants survive the temptations and indulgences of the season and give them another reason to celebrate success in the new year.


    Wallpaper your why: snap a picture of why you’re determined to lose weight, stay healthy and be fit. Make it your computer wallpaper and the background on your cell phone screen. One glance will give you all the extra willpower you need.

    Set a holiday goal: working toward and achieving a mini-goal will help you stay focused. Make it specific and realistic for the season— something that fits into the big picture of your long-term goals. It’ll set you up to succeed.

    Be the change: get rid of as many temptations as you can. Change the way you and others celebrate. Bring and serve healthy holiday food. Stay positive and inspire others to stay on track and you’ll end up motivating yourself.

    Start new traditions: traditional holiday fun doesn’t always fit with new healthy lifestyles. Try a recipe rehab on a family favorite, use smaller plates or arrange a family physical activity. One small change can make a big difference.

    Sleep to success: more sleep renews willpower and helps you make better food choices during the day. Set a bedtime 30 minutes earlier than normal, turn off the electronics and wake up recharged and refreshed.

    Set a holiday take action weight: setting a weight four to five pounds above normal gives you a little leeway but won’t let weight gain get out of control. Weigh yourself every morning. If you hit that high weight it’s time to cut back.

    Design a holiday cocktail: avoid the empty calories in alcohol. Create your own special drink for the season. Choose less alcohol or go completely alcohol-free with a “mocktail”. Use seltzer, Splenda and low calorie mixers.

    Make yourself move: keeping your activity level high will help keep all your other healthy behaviors in place. Don’t use “too busy” as an excuse. Schedule exercise into your day and make it your top priority.

    Go in with a game plan: deciding how you will enjoy the gathering ahead of time will help you take control of bad holiday behaviors. Eat ahead of time. Bring a healthy dish. Stand away from the food table. Choose to control the situation.

    Show gratitude and count your blessings: gratitude is key to a healthy mindset. Count your blessings daily and practice ways to celebrate them without food. The more you do it, the easier it becomes and the more you succeed.
