Physical fitness is the capacity to perform physical activities with vigor and alertness and without undue fatigue. Fit people have more energy to pursue many leisure activities. Fitness is also the degree to which people can withstand stress and persevere under difficult or emergency circumstances. Regular exercise is one of the best things that people can do to help prevent illness, preserve health and longevity, and enhance quality of life. Exercise comes in many forms and can vary in intensity of effort. With so many ways to exercise in the Sauna Suit, almost everyone can participate in some way.

Exercise and Physical Fitness

Exercising and staying physically fit are an important part of maintaining your health. Proper exercise and fitness can improve your health in many ways. It can:

  1. Improve the health of your heart and lungs (which lowers your chances of heart disease)
  2. Lower your cholesterol and blood pressure (which lowers your chances of heart disease, stroke, and other chronic diseases)
  3. Maintain your weight (which lowers your chances of heart disease, stroke, and other chronic diseases)
  4. Improve your strength and flexibility (which makes daily activities easier and lowers your chance of osteoporosis, broken bones, pulled muscles, and other injuries)
  5. Improve your mental health (by lowering anxiety and depression and increasing feelings of control and well-being)
  6. The type of exercises you do and how often you do them can vary greatly from person to person, but all healthcare professionals agree that exercise is beneficial to everyone’s health.

Types of Exercise

There are many different kinds of exercise that can be done wearing the Sauna Suit (walking, running, dancing, and weight lifting, to name just a few). A good exercise program will include some combination of all three of the following types of exercise:

  1. Cardiovascular

    Cardiovascular exercise improves and strengthens your heart, lungs, and circulation and helps people lose weight. Cardiovascular exercise is any type of exercise that raises your heart rate to a ‘target zone’ (determined by your age, weight, and health). Some of the most commonly discussed types of cardiovascular exercise include running, aerobics, bicycling, walking, and stair climbing, but could also include dancing, skating, skiing, boxing, martial arts, tennis, or any type of exercise that raises your heart rate.

  2. Strength Training and/or Muscle Endurance

    Strength training helps you by making you stronger and giving you better endurance (so you can do things longer). This makes day-to-day activities easier and reduces your chances of injury. While many people think of weight lifting when they hear ‘strength training’, there are many different types of exercises you can do to improve your strength (and you don’t have to be a muscle-man or woman to do them.) Some common strength training exercises include sit-ups, push-ups, strength bands, and free weights.

  3. Flexibility

    Exercises that increase your flexibility give you greater range of motion in your joints and make your body more supple, again, making day-to-day activities easier and reducing your chances of injury. Many people do specific stretching exercises to increase their flexibility but other types of exercise (such as dancing, yoga, and martial arts) can also improve flexibility.

One of the many reasons people exercise is to maintain a healthy body weight. Weighing too much (or too little) can be very harmful to your health. But what is a healthy body weight? The answer to that question depends on many factors, including your age, gender, height, body type and shape, health, and overall fitness.

Increasingly, our society is becoming obsessed with body weight and image. Many of the images we see on TV, in magazines, in films, and elsewhere stress the importance of an ‘ideal’ body that is often very unrealistic or even impossible. While it is important to remember that maintaining a healthy weight can lead to a healthier lifestyle, its also important to remember that people’s “natural” weight and body shapes vary greatly. Not everyone will be able to look model thin or muscle-man toned, no matter how often they exercise and how carefully they watch their diet.

Behaving in unhealthy ways (for example going on extreme diets, having an extreme exercise program, or taking unprescribed medicines or supplements) to try to change your body can do more damage than good. You should work with your doctor or healthcare provider to figure out what your healthiest body weight should be. Remember, that weight depends on many things, including whether you are male or female, your age, your height, and if you have any health issues. Losing weight can improve your health in many ways. Just losing 10% of your current weight can make a difference in the way you feel on a daily basis. Here are some other ways losing weight will benefit your health:

  1. Increased energy level
  2. Lower your cholesterol levels
  3. Reduce your blood pressure
  4. Reduced aches and pains
  5. Improved mobility
  6. Improve your breathing
  7. Help you sleep better and wake more rested
  8. Prevention of angina, chest pain caused by decreased oxygen to the heart
  9. Decreases your risk of sudden death from heart disease or stroke
  10. Prevention of Type 2 diabetes
  11. Improved blood sugar levels

  13. improve your sleep
  14. help to promote healthy growth and development in children, as well as maintaining their energy balance, psychological wellbeing and social interaction

Its common knowledge a healthy diet and regular exercise are important to obtain and maintain a balanced weight. The problem is implementing this into your day to day lifestyle is difficult. We’ve all tried crash diets hoping to lose 10lbs in a week for the summer holiday and failed, this is not the answer. Here at saunasuits.us we have created various products that will aid weight loss dramatically but we still rely on you to be motivated and disciplined in reaching your goals.

A lifestyle change is the idea of making healthier choices one decision at a time for the rest of your life.

For long term weight loss a person needs a well thought out plan of action in order to succeed at their lifestyle change.

  1. What changes do you need to make in your life?

    Changing different aspects of your life, for instance, how you schedule your day. Making time for exercise is vital. If you’re not use to regular exercise taking things slowly and finding exercise that you enjoy is a great way to start.

    Planning what and when you eat is also critical to ensure you maintain a healthy balanced diet.

  2. How are you going to attain them?

    You need to examine your day and plan when you can allocate time for exercise and eating.

    If exercise has not been regular in your lifestyle then it’s important to take things slowly at first to gradually incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Too many people go from one extreme to the other and soon get disheartened with exercise, the same applies with dieting. Now exercise does not necessarily mean going to the gym or running, being more generally active throughout the day is a good starting point. Going for a walk or trying to incorporate it into your daily life for example walking to the local shop instead of jumping in the car, taking the stairs instead of the escalator. Household chores such as vacuuming, gardening, and ironing are all great ways of burning calories. All these can be implemented into your life without massive change.

    In time you will be able to increase your exercise to more intentional methods such as power walking, jogging or cycling. Please explore our exercise section for a more in depth look into exercise routines and advice. Always remember to wear your Sauna suit during any form of exercise to ensure maximum weight loss is achieved.

  3. Remember if the way you live doesn’t allow for these changes, how far will you get?

    Support from family and friends will increase your chances of success. A person needs to determine how he or she will resist temptation to go back to the old lifestyle.

  4. Keep your goals realistic

    Setting goals is one way to ensure success in any weight loss effort. The mistake many dieters make is to set goals that are unrealistic. Rather than believing that you can lose all your extra pounds in a couple of weeks, make this goal more achievable by looking at it over a longer period of time. Make goals such as 1 or 2 lbs a week.

    When a goal cannot be reached it usually affects a person’s motivation resulting in disappointment and a greater chance of giving up. Success breads further success so achieving short-term realistic goals should be set to ensure you achieve them quickly to gain positive motivation. Setting goals and recording results can act as a framework for you to follow and help analyze how far you have come. By setting small and achievable goals you have a guide to help you reach your main ultimate goal!

  5. Relapse is a normal part of change

    A person needs to realize relapse is a normal part of change. A simple rule we find good to follow is be good 80% of the week and bad 20%. Life is for living and mentally it’s important not to make too many sacrifices.

    There’s no need to avoid certain food groups or feel guilty about eating a cookie. The key to managing a lifestyle change is to eat everything in moderation. Make healthy eating choices whenever possible and limit yourself to the odd treat you can’t resist.

When getting started with exercise in a Sauna Suit we will all have different fitness levels. We all have to realize this is the starting point, you have set your goals and now you are beginning the process of achieving those goals. The Sauna Suit is the most important item of training equipment you will need to ensure you will maximize your Sauna Suit weight loss.

 

And so we begin………

 

The best way to start is with walking in your Sauna Suit, set yourself a realistic distance. From there you will be able to asses your fitness and stamina.

 

Finding a Buddy

 

When choosing a buddy to exercise with its important to find someone who has a similar fitness level and achievable goals. Training in the Sauna Suit with someone is great as you can draw motivation and support from each other in reaching your goals.

 

Raising the Intensity

 

From walking in the Sauna Suit you can raise the intensity to power walking and eventually into running. Running in the Sauna Suit is one of the best forms of cardiovascular training.

 

Mixing It Up

 

Walking and running in a Sauna Suit can be fun to begin with but after time it can become tedious and it maybe time to mix things up. It’s important that your exercising in a Sauna Suit does not become a chore, find an activity you are interested in. Finding a sport you enjoy participating in for example a game of tennis or soccer can be great as we describe this as Disguised Fitness. Disguised Fitness means you are unaware at the time of exactly how much you are exercising as you are more focused on winning the point or scoring a goal. Many of these activities/sports can be done whilst using your Sauna Suit to ensure you maximize your weight loss.

 

Fitness Gyms – Good or Bad?

 

We would advise initially on not joining a fitness gym. Entering a state of the art gym can be a daunting prospect and an expensive commitment as they can have high joining fees as well as a long term payment plans.

 

You need to find what’s right for you first, cycling in a Sauna Suit is a wonderful example. You plan to go for a 15-minute bike ride and you are having such a good time it turns into an hour ride. That would not happen on a stationary bike in a gym.

 

In time you may feel a fitness gym is right for you but at least you have explored your options and you will get value for money once you decide to sign up as you know its right for you.

 

No Excuses

 

Cold or Wet weather is no longer an excuse with the Sauna Suit. Due to the “sauna effect” our Sauna suit creates you will be warm in no time at all and remember all our suits are waterproof.

 

Having a training buddy can be vital in those times of indecision of shall I exercise now or shall I stay on the sofa? Having someone to depend on to motivate you and likewise you motivate them will benefit both of you in reaching your goals.
