Jenny asks…

What college degree to go for when main interest is fitness & exercise?

My brain seems to have deteriorated after being a stay-at-home mom for 8 years, but I’m hoping my mind starts to come back as I start classes again soon. The only thing that thrills me in the whole world is exercising. And I need to get back into the real world and start earning an income again. What kind of college degree would suit me?

The only words that come to mind are kinesiology, training, sports medicine (but I don’t think i’d have a mind for medical school.) What else is out there?

The Expert answers:

It all depends on what the local schools have to offer. I have a degree in Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology (associates) and if I ever decide to further my education would be “Exercise Science” (bachelors). Sometimes these courses go by different names for example by buddy was pursuing a degree called Human Biomechanics (or something to that effect)

In my experience, it was not extremely medical…and thank goodness because medicine is not my cup of tea either. Obviously you’ve got to learn and understand human anatomy but it’s not overwhelmingly intensive. I learned a lot about different methods of fitness assessments and how to train those with diabetes, pulmonary issues, high blood pressure, children, and seniors, etc. I also think it depends on the professor you have to (mine made its so easy to understand and very fun to learn) and it also depends what career track you want to take…rehab, corrective exercise, personal training, athletic training.

Just do you research and find out what the local schools have to offer. Try asking the schools academic counselor and career coaches.

Best of luck. The fitness field is a great industry and personally I had an awesome experience from it.
*ALSO I learned soooo much from working with different personal trainers (good personal trainers, that are not as common as you might think). They also can suggest college courses for you

Michael asks…

How to get rid of muscle pain/bruises from fitness & exercise!?

I do alot of strenght training exercise which involves my whole body… It also cause nasty bruises and they really hurt!! How can I made them less painful for when I have work???… The more my muscles ache the more tired I feel.. Which is no good when you do 12hr night shifts?? Any ideas I feel like I’ve been hit my a bus!!!

The Expert answers:

When you work out do not strain your body to that extent. It should burn from lactic acid buildup and you should feel sore not feel immense pain… If you do that you’re doing it wrong. But after each exercise remember to stretch.

how much is a personal trainer at fitness 19?

i want to know some prices. any suggestions? different gyms?

The Expert answers:

You did not give any more info.

But can run at $40.00 per hour to $200.00 per hour in USA. Depends on the country.

Most people do not need one unless they are very big, and are going for some competition. Most gym will have the list of people and phone Numbers so shop around interview a few and pick one.

Thomas asks…

What’s with the Health Section – Diet & Fitness. A 19 year old girl wanted to grow 3 more inches?

A RN replied she could grow for two more years. My own doctor a while ago told me women stop growing at 18, men at 21. I nearly deleted my answer but I’m sure I’m right. How do you cope with this section or do you bypass it?

The Expert answers:

Doctors are human. And to error is human. I know for a fact women can grow after they are 18. I am living proof of it. When I graduated from high school. The night of my graduation I was wearing high heals and was still shorter then my mom who is five four. After being in college for two year I grew three more inches. I am not stating college had anything to do with it. I am saying I am living proof that females can grow taller after they turn 18. It is almost like you are insulting the RN because she is an RN and not a Dr. Like your mother.

Has anyone had good weight loss results from going to ‘Curves’ womens fitness center?

The Expert answers:

Not me personally, but a friend of mine had a fantastic result from them. She found them to be really supportive & individual to her needs. She lost about 15 kilograms in about 3 months, of course they had her on a very strict diet where she could not drink alcohol (hardest for her I think!) & she actually had to weigh her foods to make sure she wasnt eating to much. It can be a really good program for those who have the determination to stick to it. Either way you decide, best wishes :o)

The Expert answers:

Jenny asks…

Where to find FREE online fitness workout advice?

I am eager to find a site where, based on personal characteristics, I can get a FREE good/professional advice for a customized fitness program in accordance with my wishes. I am lost in all the sites offering books, advices, plans and “do-it-yourself” options. I don’t know how to do it. I wish to find someone who does and who is willing to share his/hers knowledge for free. I just want a good workout plan, not a book about it. Still, precise enough so that I can, literally, stick to it not having to think much about the next exercise, due to the fact that I don’t have much time for that, or for research.
I am sincerely thankful for all the answers I can get.
Best regards to all the readers!

The Expert answers:

This site I could not live without! It is a twelve week program but you get AMAZING results, you just have to stick to it:

www.freetrainers.com

and it doesn’t cost a thing 🙂

Michael asks…

free fitness workout program?

I need to get a fitness workout program which consists of 5 days, there needs to be cardio, muscle, flexibility and endurance exercises for a beginner
If someone could provide me with a link I would be very thankful

The Expert answers:

Hey buddy,

I did some researches and found something nice for you:

http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/workoutdatabase.htm

In this link you select how many days per week you want to workout and what is your objectives.

But it won’t give you cardio exercises.

So choose 3 days per week of muscle training (using this link) and do 2 cardio exercises per week.

If you go to the gym, you have cardio machines. If you don’t have access to a gym: you can do jogging, ski jumping, suicide drills, etc.

Keep up the good work

Mary asks…

Excellent workout/fitness website list?

For those of you who know some truly great sites – I’m looking for reliable (you can trust nearly anything on the site) and free fitness and workout websites. Any good sites y’all know would be greatly appreciated.

Bonus points for having these on the sites y’all share:
1. List of workouts, pics of how to do them, explanations, etc.
2. Examples of workout plans and diet plans
3. Body-weight only exercises (No equipment whatsoever exercises)

The Expert answers:

Sandy asks…

Do I need some kind of license to make a website with fitness coordination/physical training?

I am planning on making a website where i can give free (and some fee based) exercise information, nutritional information, workout plans, and much more. Do I need to have some kind of fitness teachings certificate, or something or any other kind of license to do this?

The Expert answers:

TBI lets put the shoe on the customers foot.
If a customer was to go to your site and read all your information and it might be great information, which do you think you would have better results. A site that has a recognized Certificate in the chosen field or one that doesn’t.

Customers want to know they are dealing with someone who has credibility and some form of accreditation would give your site credability.

Any suggestions on a good women’s fitness magazine or online forum?

I’m looking for a good magazine to get monthly or maybe a good and informative website with an active forum would be nice.

I’m looking for a magazine that his more focused on fitness, nutrition and such. The occasion rave about other things such as recipes, workout attire and other things are OK, but are not the focus.

I’ve tried SHAPE and Fitness, but I’m not really impressed. Muscle and Fitness seems good, but I’m not really into men, especially those huge ones. Plus, I think it caters more to men than women.

Thank you

The Expert answers:

Check out www.sparkpeople.com

As for magazines my favorites are Oxygen and M & F Hers. Both are women oriented.

Sandy asks…

Can anyone help me with deciding my college major? art, environmental science, fitness?

I just cannot make up my mind!

“Find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life.” – Confucius. I want to do just as this quote says but I don’t quite know what that job might be.

I have always loved art and been naturally good at it. I do better at expressing myself with art, whether trying to explain something or just trying to show emotion. I also love taking pictures and editing them, especially of nature. I take my camera everywhere, even though it’s not that great of a camera.

Also, I love nature and being outdoors. I love being outdoors. I hate being cooped up inside and being in the city. If I could I would live in a cabin out in the middle of the woods by a lake, river, cave, and/or mountain. I would really like to be able to help the environment and animals or take care of animals. I love to hike, camp, rock climb, swim, explore caves, etc. . . However, I don’t really know a job which those things are the job description lol.

In addition, I also have always wondered about being a fitness instructor. I love exercising and trying to motivate people to exercise and be fit and healthy. I always pretended to be my mom’s fitness coach haha. I always get questions about exercise and dieting from family and friends. I love doing yoga, Pilates, Tae bo, and Tai chi. I think it would be so fun to teach those things to people and help people to be healthy.

All in all, I love all of this things but with my personalty I’m not sure which would be best. I’m quit and shy, always pretty anxious, I get bored easily, especially with routines, I’m spontaneous and weird, I have horrible communications skills (I’m intelligent but it takes me a moment to figure things out. I have to stop and focus to be able to think. In which, I am not very good at verbally communicating, there are a lot of pauses or I blurt out random things to avoid awkward pauses.), I am too nice, I hate conflict, I’m not very good at being told what to do unless it makes complete sense as to why I’m doing it, I prefer doing a task alone, and I enjoy school but it can get so annoying and boring and sometimes i just lose motivation to do it, the thought of going to college for 6 years and spending so much money on it kills my soul.

So, I hope some one can help me out because I’ve been trying to figure this out for years now changing what I think I want my major to be every 6 months! lol.
Thank you!

The Expert answers:

Haha you sound EXACTLY like me. I’m in environmental engineering now… I feel a little stifled, and I can’t say I’d recommend it offhand. It’s not right for everyone, and I’m not even sure it’s right for me. Perhaps talking to a counselor or college advisor would help you out. I’d love to hear what you decide on, ultimately! Good luck!

Joseph asks…

Lack of motivational skills–esp. to lose weight? Help?

I am 16 years old and on a fairly strict diet/exercise regimen. It’s been working; I’ve lost 4 lbs. already in under 2 weeks, but I’m starting to find it harder and harder to motivate myself to get up and do the exercise, even though it’s not very difficult work. I really, really want to be thinner; I’m not very heavy but I’m a good deal heavier than most girls I know (admittedly I live in a really rich town with snobs…) and I am transferring schools most likely next fall and I want to be thin and in shape in case I find anyone special, and just to generally make a good impression.
The thing is, I’ve always had a lack of motivational skills. Not to boast, but I’m pretty smart; I’ve won various achievements and awards pertaining to academics and got into 3 honors courses in freshman year (though the school I’m at now doesn’t offer honors courses), but I didn’t work hard at all to get there… I pretty much half-as*ed everything I did, knowing I would be fine; and if it was something important or big I’d wait until the very last minute to do it. I don’t do chores at my house really, except for on occasion… Even with my health I’m lazy (besides the whole fitness thing)…I have good hygiene, but when it comes to doing physical treatments for my respiratory disorder (Cystic Fibrosis) I’ve always had a habit of waiting until my parents are practically red in the face yelling at me to do them.
Do you have any advice??? I’m already in therapy… I have bipolar II disorder, OCD, and anxiety disorder, if that helps. But I really need to pick it up with doing my exercises and all. Any inspirational advice or quotes would be great… Please help. Thank you!!

The Expert answers:

Buy a copy of I Can Make You Thin by Paul McKenna. Worked for me. I was on a diet for 5months and couldn’t have made it without his NLP therapy techniques.
Or you could go to the I Can Make You Thin website,sign in, and watch the motivational videos for free.
I personally do not know of a better way. He teaches that imagination is stronger than willpower.
You won’t have to fight to lose weight if you change your thinking. It also might help you get motivated to do you respiratory treatments too.

Has anyone heard of Curves the womens fitness place?

Is anyone a member and has it worked for them? Also what else did u do like diet wise? Any info will help

The Expert answers:

I LOVE curves!!

You know how when you go to a gym, there are all those stupid “gym people” there- the ones that don’t need to spend every minute there, the ones that look at you like.. Pfft, yeah right… The ones that go to hook up with people, the ones that take all the machines and good spots?

There’s NONE of that at curves!

There’s only women and you can come in in holey sweats and be accepted and welcome! Women of ALL sizes are there and they laugh and talk and get to know one another as you rotate the equipment and stuff…

I found it works so well because it doesn’t feel like going to the gym… You know, something you HAVE to do… It’s like getting together and meeting different women and hanging out and talking… But instead of eating ice cream and watching a movie, you’re drinking water and working out!

Honestly, at first, i was anti-diet when i started…
But after a little bit, you start… FEELING healthy and good and active…
So then you want to keep that feeling going and make smarter food choices and stuff…

It’s awesome and i totally recommend it!
It took time, but i lost the weight i wanted to- and i’ve kept it off since!

Helen asks…

Is it better to do the same exercise DVD everyday, or to alternate them?

My friends and I do workout DVDs everyday during our lunch break. We have taebo, 3 biggest loser DVDs and the Jacker Warner DVD from Workout. Everyone has a different opinion as to whether it is better to do the same one every day for a week, or to alternate which ones we do everyday. Does anyone know fitness-wise what is the better option?

The Expert answers:

You need to alternate so that you can use different muscle groups that might be on one video but not the other. Besides, changing it up is better for your own sanity haha

Sandy asks…

What is your favourite exercise dvd?

I have a small library and am always interested in acquiring new dvd‘s. I find that I get bored really easily, so the more choice I have, the more apt I am to stick to my routine. So what are your faves, and why?

Oh, mine is currently the 10 Minute Solution Fitness Ball Workouts.

The Expert answers:

Well, i just lost 10,000 pounds in about a month with Winsor Pilates!!!!

No, just kidding…it was more close to eight.

David asks…

Which Jillian Michaels fitness DVD is best to get?

Which Jillian Michaels workout DVD is best to get?
I’m going to buy one of Jillian Michael’s (trainer from the biggest leader) DVDs but she has so many I don’t know which one to get…I need to tone and lose weight, I’m not that fit but I’m not unfit either..I want to avoid floor exercises as I’m just not able for that! Which one do you think is the best? (and I’d really like to tone my flabby arms..!!!)
Thanks

The Expert answers:

The 30 Shred is fantastic for toning arms. I’m doing it at the moment – currently on day 17 – and I have arm muscle definition for the first time in my life! I would say arms and legs experience the biggest visual impact followed by bum and abs which also get very toned. I use 2.5 kg weights but if you don’t have any you can use filled water bottles or tins of beans for example. I used lentil jars for my first few days!

The workout is structured like circuit training with short bursts of cardio then strength moves which means you are burning fat while you build and tone muscle. There is a total of 3 minutes floor work (for abs) in each workout which isn’t too excessive. The rest is a combination of squats, lunges, jumping jacks, punches etc.

There are 3 levels which you move up as you improve and that means your body doesn’t get used to it so you are constantly challenging it to burn fat. You should do the workout daily and since it’s only a little more than 20 minutes long it’s very easy to fit in to your day.

I highly recommend it. Enjoy!

Joseph asks…

Is there a workout DVD that you’ve used, that actually worked & wasn’t terrible to do?

I’ve saw commercials for the “flirty girl” dance exercise videos & “Fitness Made Simple, there used to be “Tae-Bo”, etc. I’d like to start working out at home, using a DVD exercise video. A gym would be a waste of my money, I’ve tried it before. I’m more of an ‘at home’ type of person. I don’t want to waste my money on a video that is either very hard or very boring or just simply doesn’t work. I tried yoga videos & discovered I don’t like yoga. So I wanted to ask the public, have any of the DVD‘s worked for you?

The Expert answers:

Personally – I like most all the DVD’s by Beachbody. They have a variety of fitness ranges to choose from, from 10 minute workouts to P90X.

As someone that is working to become a trainer, I buy lots of dvds to try and to suck ideas from. (being honest). Most arent too bad, but they lack balance or are just too lame/strange/wierd. Beachbody always seem to have a nice balance, give breaks when you need them, and explain what good form means. Many dont cover form. They just assume you’ll get it..and trust me..many dont.

Honestly – i hate Kempo and the other martial arts ones. They work..yea.. Just not me. Im not a hee-yah type I guess.

Ruth asks…

Weight Loss/ Exercise/ fitness Email group – anyone interested?

So I answered an alternate question involving the fact that exercise is the enemy and how I’d love to be one of those people who actually enjoy working out… but I’m not… but what I was wondering was if any of my contacts or anyone else, would be interested in joining up and becoming email penpals about working out and keeping each other motivated…? Would that be beneficial to anyone or am I kidding myself?
I find it amusing that I received answers saying “Count me in” but (a) didn’t contact me directly and (b) don’t allow email or other type of contact outside of Y!A… If you are really all that interested in more than the 2 points, I’m going to re-dedicate my 360 page to weight loss and fitness. Contact me if interested in forming an email group.

The Expert answers:

Walk away the pounds by Leslie Sansone (Dvds are at places like Target) is pretty good. It’s very low-impact but it can be high-intensity and since you use weights (if you choose), you’re toning as well. Make sure you stretch before and after and drink plenty of fluids.

Linda asks…

Fitness Advice And Exercise?

I am 25, caucasion (not sure if that even makes a difference), 6 foot tall, and weigh 160 lbs. I am skinny, but I have alot of fat on my inner thighs. I also have unwanted man-boobs. They’re not huge man-boobs or anything, in fact they only slightly protrude. And I also have quite a bit of belly fat, I am trying also to lose 2 inches on my waist-line. I don’t want to bulk up, I don’t want “pecks”, I just don’t want my “man-boobs” to have any protrusion any more, I want them to just be flat. So the fat on my inner thighs, my belly, my slight man-boobs, and I want to lose 2 inches. Does anyone know any exercises that would help alot with these specific problem areas of mine? Thanks so much!

The Expert answers:

Change your diet to decrease your caloric intake and increase your cardio. I recommend going to www.bodybuilding.com and reading some of the articles there….tons of information.

Charles asks…

When exercising, is fitness water (Propel, etc) healthier than regular water?

I’m doing a chemistry project, and am looking for a little more information. If you know any facts, you can post them, so long as you can list your sources. Opinions are fine, too.

Thanks!

The Expert answers:

They work somewhat better then regular water because of the light mineral content. However, you’re only really concerned about hydration during an intense workout so paying extra for mineral water is not worth it. The water molecule is one of the systems main transporters of nutrients across the cell membrane and into the blood stream for use by the body. As transport molecules go it’s rather large and some minerals attached to in may not make it to the blood stream. Protein, creatiene and L- gultimine are all small enough to ride across attached to the water molecule and get into the system, but those items are mostly taken after a workout when the muscle cells are screaming for something…
Most people don’t get down to the cellular level in thought of how things affect the body…Most bodybuilders I know have to make that a field of study because they need to know how to best get the nutrients they need.

Steven asks…

Good fitness exercises for men without barbells?

Hi my friends,

I have moved and due to the fact that I have a new job now, I cant do so much sport. Before, I played basketball 3 times a week and went to gym twice.

Do you know good exercises to stay and shape, train all muscle groups and still have a well defined body, without barbells. I am looking forward for your links and answers.

Thanks and greets from Germany 🙂

The Expert answers:

Sounds like you mean primarily upper-body, so I’ll skip walking, running, etc. Push-ups (with your feet up the stairs if you are already pumped), pull-ups, sit-ups or crunchers, etc., are some obvious starters. Check out some military exercise manuals, they provide a lot options for “unassisted” exercise.

Any bathing suit ideas?

I am a Muslim girl. Recently, I was invited to a friend’s birthday party, where we will be going on a water slide and possibly a hot tub. I am not allowed to wear a bikini or one piece swimming suit. Do you think a black under armour shirt and basketball shorts that reach my knee caps would be appropriate?

This is what the under armour shirt looks like:

If not, do you have any ideas for a bathing suit (I am not wearing a burkini, they don”t look too amazing)

The Expert answers:

When i swam, i wore a one piece with tights underneath…it was all girls though…i’m assuming there will only be girls there?

I’d just wear a one piece with that under armour shirt and tights…but i’m only saying this if there are ONLY girls there.

Helen asks…

Is my niece overweight? Or do i have too high of standards? ?

Well, i am a fitness trainer. I have ran 4 marathons, i can do 1 hour on the stairmaster (easily) and i can lift 120 with my arms, and 200 with my legs. I am in very, very good shape. Sometimes i think my standards are unrealistically high, especially when it comes to my niece, Natasha. She is 13 years old. She is big boned (not in a bad way) but she is tall for her age (5’7), she has broad shoulders and hips, and a “curvy” figure.

She is 5’7, and she weighs 150 pounds. I think a lot of it is muscle, but im not sure. She wears a pant size 7 (womens, american sizes)

Recently i have started working out with her, and i assumed she would be in bad shape because she is a little heavy, but she can do 125 flights of stairs on the stairmaster in 30 minutes, she can run 1-2 miles pretty easily, and she can do 90 minutes on the elleptical. She works out about 4 times a week now.

Is she overweight, or just muscular? Are my standards too high? What can i do? thanks.

also, she eats 1,200 – 1,500 calories a day of healthy food

If she is eating healthy, then that explains why she has so much energy. I am 5’7 and i weigh about 135- a size 4- and Im trying to loose weight!

So yes, it sounds she is a bit overweight, just keep encouraging her!

If not, do you have any ideas for a bathing suit (I am not wearing a burkini, they don”t look too amazing)

The Expert answers:

I think that IS a nice idea.
But since its all girls, you can wear a tank top. With wide shoulder straps. Or one of those tank-top style sports bras; this way you get a bit of support and don’t have to wear something underneath…which will be annoying. Because if you are developed, you may need to wear a bra or tank under your UA shirt.
Just considering your comfort. And you can definitely wear shorts. See if you can get surf shorts for girls. Usually basketball shorts are made with fabric that become very heavy with water. So just get surf/ boarding shorts…(whatever length you feel comfortable in).

You can get them very cheap at sporting goods store or department stores.
