Healthy Santa Clarita, a goal adopted by the City Council for 2005, is in response to the growing number of obese adults and children in the United States. Nationwide, one out of two adults is overweight or obese and 54 percent of all adults are not regularly active. The prevalence of overweight and obese children and adolescence has doubled since 1980. Children now spend a minimum of four hours a day watching television on average, and approximately 300,000 U.S. deaths a year are associated with obesity and being overweight.
You've read the testimonials and heard the pitch, but you're still deciding on whether or not an all-female 30-minute fitness gym is right for you. But first, what is 30-minute fitness?
With the new year comes new resolutions about health and fitness. If you're like millions of other Americans, 2005 will start off with bold goals and renewed gym memberships. Wait... doesn't that sound exactly like the beginning of 2004? What stopped you last year from achieving your "perfect" physique? Maybe your exercise routine became stale, or maybe it was too boring right from the start.
Ever notice that around this time of year, the days get shorter but our to-do lists get longer? If you're one of the many who have been attacked on both sides by stress and fatigue, maybe it's time to take a minute for yourself. Yoga has been shown to promote circulation, calm the nervous system and cleanse the body of toxins. The poses shown here were selected for their simplicity and their ability to both release stress and increase energy.
