Hello to all of you glorious wonders, you seekers of fitness and health, you beauties looking for a way to live your fullest life. As members of our global fitfam, we want you guys to have strong, healthy hearts to power your lives and your workouts, but also because heart disease, unfortunately, is the number one global killer. So many people's lives are impacted by heart disease, 1 in 4 deaths in America are caused by heart disease, and it claims another life every 36 seconds.
There is some light in the darkness however, and it comes from a new study that we would like to share with you. The Journal of the American Heart Association has published a report that basic movement can have incredible benefits when it comes to reducing the risks associated with heart disease. According to the study, you don’t need to hit the gym for an hour a day to keep your heart healthy. Routine activities that you likely wouldn’t consider ‘exercise’ like cooking, standing, walking up your stairs, cleaning, gardening and lawn work - are all types of basic movements that can have a massive impact on your heart health.
The study found that just 4 hours of movement based activity per day lowered the risk of heart disease by an astonishing 43% and lowered the risk of stroke by 30%. The risk of dying of cardiovascular disease dropped by 62% as well.
The BodyRock Weighted Vest.
You can optimize your movement by adding hands free resistance training to any activity or exercise simply by snapping on our BodyRock weighted vest. The vest turns any movement into strength training, making you stronger and more capable, and it will also up your calorie and fat burn - all while leaving your hands perfectly free to tackle whatever you are working on. Just snap it on and go.
A sedentary lifestyle is the #4 cause of obesity - find out the other top causes here. A sedentary lifestyle is one of the leading causes of disease, disability and the ‘gateway’ to health conditions caused by obesity. Sedentary means that you are not moving your body enough to support its proper function. It’s choosing to circle the parking lot multiple times to get the parking spot closest to the entrance. It’s taking the escalator over the stairs. It’s every time you make the decision to limit your physical movement, across a dozen tiny decisions every single day. When it comes to our bodies (and our minds for that matter), it’s use it or lose it - but the good news is that you don’t have to ‘use it’ that much to start to make major changes and improvements in your health. Recent studies have shown that just 10 minutes of a workout like our Beginner Bootcamp is enough to burn excess body fat, tone and strengthen muscle, and reverse damage caused by a sedentary lifestyle. Just 10 minutes of this type of workout is more effective than a 45 minute long jog. If it’s been years or even decades since you last purposefully exercised, giving us just 10 minutes a day can change your life.
A shot from our 30 Day Beginner Bootcamp.
We’ve been beating the drum lately on the power of small changes that can power magnificent changes - like what happens to your calorie intake when you get just 1.2 hours more sleep per night, how you don’t have to take as many steps as you thought to lower your chance of premature death by over 50%, or how just 10 minutes of our Beginner Bootcamp is better than a 45 minute jog. The reason we want to get this information out to you, is that there are a lot of people out there who desperately want to get their lives and health back on track, be that losing weight, getting stronger and more capable, or even just having a body that is mobile and able to get them around - whatever their individual reasons are for seeking out the healing effects of a solid diet and exercise program - and they don’t know where to start. Beginners often think that they will be forced into doing a gruelling, hour long workout, but that’s just not the case. Study after study is emerging to prove that small changes and small workouts can transform people's bodies in ways that are just absolutely bloody miraculous.
Fitness is within your reach - and we are showing you the way forward. Grab a vest (they are currently on sale) and snap it on the next time that you are puttering around the house, out for a walk, or working in the garden. It will optimize all of your movements and chances are you will forget that you even have it on, once you get going. Come and get involved in our 30 Day Beginner Bootcamp series - it’s just 10 minutes a day, and you can do it anywhere. We have a lady from the UK that does her daily workout in her bathroom - she streams it on her phone, and does it before her morning shower. It’s that easy and accessible. To make it even easier, we are offering a full year of access to the Beginner Bootcamp on our fitness streaming service BodyRockPlus.com for just $69 with code NY22.
A bit of movement is all it takes to get the ball rolling. So come on, lets do it together,
