It is the duty and responsibility of our government to provide each tax paying citizen a better solution for health and well-being. This should be implemented in the privacy of our own homes. This should be at no additional cost to the taxpayer, but to be paid for by our government. Better health and well-being must start in the home.
George Bernard Shaw wrote, “Youth is the most precious thing in life; it is too bad it has to be wasted on young folks.”
This is a sad truth.
The paradox of it all is that we sacrifice our time and health in the pursuit of wealth and at the end of our journey, we spend our wealth on the pursuit of better health and more time.
Sadly, I’ve known many individuals who’ve attained millions of dollars but are left sick, unhappy and alone.
Simply put, our health is our wealth.
Pain Is To Inflame
Where there is fire, there is smoke. The cause of the fire is not as important as the fact that there is a fire. When our bodies have a disease we are inflamed. I will briefly simplify the two words “disease” and “inflamed.”
Dis-ease: Not at ease.
(A disorder of structure or function in a human, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury. Whether your body has a broken bone, a virus, bacterium, Cancer, or any other disease it will have inflammation.)
In-flamed: Fire within.
(A localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection.)
Nearly 75% of all deaths in the United States are attributed to just 10 causes, with the top 3 of these, accounting for over 50% of all deaths.
Chronic lower respiratory disease
Influenza and pneumonia
80% of these causes of death are preventable and treatable with exercise.
Movement is medicine, even small doses extend longevity and can prevent and treat disease. Movement truly is a polypill. Thinkers of ancient times, such as Hippocrates and Plato, suggested that physical activity was good for health.
The epidemic that has scourged America can be solved by simply eating healthy and exercising daily.
I wonder why the majority of Americans avoid exercise like the plague?
I believe because it is hard work and takes up so much time.
If each American had a simple, user-friendly solution for medicinal-movement that respects our time, we would beat the diseases that are killing us.
Motion Is Lotion
Not all movements are medicinal, some are very inflammatory and dangerous. If you are currently in a fitness program that leaves you injured, abandon it immediately!
Not all resistances are created equal.
A brief explanation of isotonic, isometric, and isokinetic.
Isotonic exercise: Exercise when a contracting muscle shortens against a constant load, as when lifting a weight. This is the most popular form of resistance today. Cross fit has been ridiculed for creating such a dangerous fitness program. 80% of cross-fitters get injured within the first 60 days of starting.
Isometric exercise is when muscular contractions occur without movement of the involved parts of the body. Think Bruce Lee pushing on a wall that doesn’t move.
Isokinetic exercise is a type of strength training. It uses specialized exercise machines that produce a constant speed no matter how much effort you expend. These machines control the pace of an exercise by fluctuating resistance throughout your range of motion. I am proud to introduce the CorePump® Machine.
I had a discussion with a very knowledgeable exercise physiologist (Jeff Lockwood with LifeSport), and we were discussing the best methods and practices for training high-level athletes. The ideal training situation for an athlete is to build strength, power, and endurance for muscle groups specific to their sport. Consider a cyclist, the athlete will have to optimize their capacity to ride more efficiently and effectively while refining and fine-tuning their skills specific to their sport. This takes a lot of time and practice. To be the best, you have to beat the best.
In order to beat the best, you must be faster and out-perform your opponent. You need to be the better machine. This is done by increasing strength, flexibility, and endurance. Simple as that.
Using traditional forms of resistance, you will suffer from DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). This is a condition that will require much-needed rest in order to fully recover. This takes time away from the athlete for optimally training and performing.
Using isokinetic resistance will strengthen all the necessary muscle groups without getting blasted with DOMS.
This will give the athlete more time to refine their skills in order to be victorious over their opponents.
This applies to life athletes as well. You and me.
The solution for better health and wellness is finding a method that will not take up very much time and space, yet still effective in preventing and treating 80% of the causes of death.
Love One Another
Often I think about what thoughts run through people’s minds at the end of their journeys, here on earth. When transcending from mortality to the unknown, what common thoughts race through the minds of the departing? I would guess one thing that never gets a second thought would be “how much money do I have?” An idea that consumes the majority of people their whole lives long. It’s amazing and somewhat unsettling that we have put so much time and energy in the pursuit of money. If we only get one life to live, why have we succumbed to this nonsense? Can money truly buy happiness? I think not. Just ask the departed.
I think people ultimately put their conscious-energy into thoughts like have I loved? How have I been loved, in return?
Just like earning monetary wealth, earning love takes time, energy, and consistent-persistence.
Unlike the pursuit of money, the return on love is much more fulfilling, and the dividends are truly out of this world.
Every fitness regimen should meet one common goal: improve strength, flexibility and cardiovascular health and function.
These 3 components of health are what we call the 3 pillars of fitness.
I am pleased to announce that I have created a solution that will make the world healthier without taking up a lot of time and space while achieving optimal health.
