There are many reasons why Americans’ exercise levels have declined – Meet an executive that refuses to sit still with his TrekDesk Treadmill Desk even in a sedentary job

Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) August 28, 2014

Kirklyn Smith, an office manager for EzCOI.com, is closing in on what may be a new world?s record by walking 5,000 miles in a single year without ever leaving his desk.At TrekDesk we are constantly amazed by the thousands of individual stories of TrekDesk treadmill desk users across the country, but some just seem to stand out more than the others.

Kirklyn has launched a website that details his daily 24 hour step count which tallies a range of 54,823 steps (presumably on an off day) to 69,356 steps. So far he has walked 3,409 miles in 2014.

Let?s put that in perspective for a moment.

According to the University of Tennessee the average American takes 5,000 steps a day (the Surgeon General recommends a minimum of 10,000 steps). Kirklyn takes up to 14x more steps in his busy days as an insurance executive than a majority of us and exceeds the Surgeon General?s daily minimums seven fold! That is impressive to say the least but add in the fact that he does it all without losing one second of time out of his demanding work days.

What?s his secret? A treadmill and an innovative design known as the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. Designed to fit any existing treadmill TrekDesk treadmill desk is an affordable, full sized, height adjustable workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of daily exercise to lose weight, maintain health, reduce stress, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation.

You can keep track of his daily progress at http://www.workiwalk.com/Progress.aspx as he closes in on those last 1,591 miles toward the record.

?We stay in touch with a lot of our TrekDesk users through Facebook, Twitter and email and have been awed by many of the individual stories of health restoration and social conviction to spread the word about the health benefits of movement,? stated Steve Bordley of TrekDesk Treadmill Desk, ?but Kirklyn always seems to set a new bar in regards to personal achievement. He has already completed the equivalent of a marathon walking at his desk in a single work day but this new goal simply astounded us.?

Going Back To Fitness Basics for Big Results: CrossFit Hub Releases New and Funky Exercise Clothing for Workouts

Singapore (PRWEB) January 08, 2014

A famous philosopher and physicist once said, ?The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?. Those were the words of Albert Einstein back in the 1900?s. Today, as we move into the 21st century, that could easily be translated to many areas of modern day living, including physical fitness.

CrossFit is about going back to your basic functional movement patterns. Many people desire an athlete?s strength and a bodybuilder?s form with the holistic mental and spiritual well-being of a yogi. But all they?re ever willing to do are the run of the mill routines they?ve gotten used to over the years, as dictated by their run of the mill trainers because there was no other choice available.

That is, until a revolutionary method of training was introduced to the health and fitness industry. Since the first CrossFit affiliated gym opened in 1995 in Santa Cruz, the world of bodybuilders, athletes, trainers and physical fitness enthusiasts has never been the same. The number of affiliated gyms grew from 18 in 2005 to almost 1,700 in 2010.

Weightlifting coaches associated with CrossFit include Louis Simmons, Bill Starr, and Mike Burgener. Former NFL player John Welbourn developed the CrossFit Football program. Other CrossFit subject matter experts include Dr. Nicholas Romanov, inventor of the Pose Method of running and Dr. Barry Sears, originator of the Zone Diet. Athletes from around the world have competed in the annual “CrossFit Games” in Aromas, California where regional events are held, including a sectional competition at the Arnold Classic that was introduced by 7-time Mr. Olympia awardee himself Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Although many professional athletes have benefited from the CrossFit program, its methods were not created solely for ball players, tennis players or boxers, triathletes, etc. CrossFit is beneficial and accessible to the average Jane, Mary, Tom, Dick and Harry.

One may not think of oneself as an athlete or realize the importance of acquiring the same skills as Olympic athlete, but if strength, power, balance and agility, flexibility, and endurance are desired in everyday life, then one can clearly aspiring to be one, because being competent in all those areas is CrossFit?s exact definition of an athlete. Each of those aptitudes is enhanced with CrossFit whether they are used by the world?s best athletes and ordinary men and women since the main thrust of the CrossFit principle is all-encompassing of general functional fitness.

The CrossFit program is not focused on any single area but it deliberately attempts to boost fitness in ten fields all at once. They are Cardiovascular and Respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy while focusing on the three metabolic pathways that provide energy for all human action; CrossFit athletes are engaged in gymnastics, weightlifting and sprinting.

In gyms and health clubs, a usual workout comprises of movements for segregated muscles and long-drawn-out aerobic sessions. The fitness community gives the exercising population and the world at large the notion that doing their lateral raises, sit-ups and the like if combined with riding the stationary bike or treadmill is going to produce some kind of ?athlete? in them.

With CrossFit workouts, work is done exclusively on compound and shorter high intensity cardiovascular movements. They have replaced the lateral raise with push press, the curl with pull-ups, and the leg extension with squats.

CrossFit athletes run, row, jump rope , climb rope and carry odd objects. They move large loads over long distances with speed, using powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting techniques. They also use dumbbells, gymnastics rings, pull up bars, kettlebells, and many bodyweight exercises. CrossFit is now used in nearly 1,700 gyms worldwide and even by fire departments, law enforcement agencies and military organizations including the Canadian Forces, the United States Marine Corps, and the Royal Danish Life Guards.

Now many people worldwide have the awareness and opportunity to workout using the CrossFit method such as that offered at CrossFit Hub. Today, everyone who comes to the Hub has been given the chance to become a real athlete, bringing innovation to the daily workout routine and something truly different and spectacular can be expected at CrossFit Hub

Many athletes look for comfort and durability in their fitness gears and workout attire. These types of clothing are usually those which will enable anyone to move around as much as possible when squatting, jumping, running, dead lifting, etc.

Coach Yun of CrossFit Hub said, “I love fitness and workout T-shirts with funny and funky illustrations, they educate, inform and inspire, they make you smile and laugh, and I will be continuing to make these awesome fitness and workout type shirts and share them with everyone who comes to the Hub”

CrossFit Hub recently designed and released limited quantities of new workout shirts that will surely make anyone smile. They are great additions to your collection of gear for Fitness. If you are interested please inquire with CrossFit Hub.

For the past several years, my family has spent a week, in early January, at the Club Med village in Punta Cana, on the southwestern shore of the Dominican Republic. (Our first visit to Club Med was back in 1985, and some photos of last year’s trip can be seen here.)

This year’s visit coincided with the awful earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince, Haiti — about 260 miles away, on the eastern coast of the island of Hispaniola. From what I understand, the fault line went straight west, in our direction, but then cut south at approximately the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. In any case, none of the vacationers at Club Med felt even the slightest tremor; we got all of our news of the ensuing events just like everyone else, by watching CNN. But because we expected the capitol city of Santo Domingo to be chaotic and congested with relief efforts, I decided to skip a daylong trip that I had tentatively planned to photograph the churches and markets of what turns out to be the oldest city in the Western hemisphere (settled in 1497 by Christopher Columbus’ brother).

In recent years, most of my photographic efforts have focused on the vacationers who fill the beaches and pool — especially the children, who come from Canada, France, Venezuela, and various other parts of the world besides the United States. So I decided to focus on something else this year, and … well, you can judge the results for yourself…
