For starters, most parents understand that water, some juices, and most milk is healthy. And most parents know that soda is not healthy, diet or regular. But what about the ever growing aisle […]

The research done by Porcari and Steuttgen on Zumba (commissioned by the American Council on Exercise,) gives a thumbs up to this fast paced workout. It is not just fun, it can be called exercise!

In our last article we discussed how fun Zumba is…but questioned it’s effectiveness as actual exercise.  Here’s what we found out… The American Council on Exercise commissioned a team to investigate Zumba.  Sure it’s fun, but does it produce results worthy of calling it a formal exercise? Researchers, Porcari and Luettgen, set out to nail down the average energy expenditure and exercise intensity during one Zumba class on average. This means what actually happens for […]

Have you ever sat and watched kids on a playground? They run from the see saw to playing tag and then to the monkey bars. It seems their energy increases the more they run and laugh and play.  With the even changing society where sitting in front of a computer captures many of the hours kids could be outside we are challenged to think of how to make sure our kids get the exercise they […]
