KERRIE FITNESS – Shares – All the #fitspo in the world hasn’t made us more active

IMG_0433

10-Sep-2018

The human race is plodding along at a leisurely pace towards rising rates of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity, the latest report from the World Health Organisation shows.

Despite rolling government campaigns – and the rise of #fitspo – there has been no improvement in the global rates of physical activity for 15 years, found the first study to estimate global physical activity trends.

More than one quarter of the world’s adult population (1.4 billion people) were not active enough in 2016, according to the report published in The Lancet Global Health on Wednesday.

Australian ranked 97 out of 168 countries included in the analysis. Just over 30 per cent of the Australian adult population weren’t active enough, with Australian women more likely to be inactive than men (33.6 per cent versus 27 per cent).

Overall, one in three women (32 per cent) and one in four men (23 per cent) globally do not get enough exercise, highlighting a need to offer safe, affordable and culturally acceptable interventions to physical activity among women globally.

WHO’s recommended levels of physical activity are at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week to lessen the risk of non-communicable diseases including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes as well as some cancers.

High-income countries have levels of inactivity that are more than twice as high as low-income countries (37 per cent versus 16 per cent).

Inactivity rates rose 5 per cent in the wealthier countries over the 15-year period, found the analysis of 358 population-based surveys that canvassed self-reported activity levels including incidental exercise at work, home, travel and leisure time.

Four countries reported more than half their adult population were not doing enough physical activity: Kuwait (67 per cent), American Samoa (53 per cent), Saudi Arabia and Iraq.

About 40 per cent of adults in the US were not doing enough exercise. The same was true of 36 per cent of adults in Britain and 14 per cent in China.

New Zealand and the US were among the countries with the highest increases in inactivity over the 15-year period.

The countries with the lowest levels of insufficient physical activity in 2016 were Uganda and Mozambique (6 per cent).

Some countries did improve significantly. Inactivity levels dropped from 26 to 17 per cent in east and south-east Asia, largely influenced by China’s recent enthusiasm for exercise, the authors said.

“Unlike other major global health risks, levels of insufficient physical activity are not falling worldwide, on average, and over a quarter of all adults are not reaching the recommended levels of physical activity for good health,” warns the study’s lead author, Dr Regina Guthold of the WHO.

Office jobs, sedentary and tech-heavy leisure activities and motorised transport were likely driving the higher levels of inactivity in wealthier countries, while lower-income countries were more active by virtue of physical labour and fewer motor transport options, the authors said.

Dr Guthold said countries needed to better implement policies designed to increase physical activity.

Heart Foundation spokesperson on physical activity, Adjunct Professor Trevor Shilton, said the Australian findings were disheartening.

“This study shows that the message about the importance of physical activity still isn’t getting through to many Australians, and there is much room for improvement,” Professor Shilton said.

“It is vitally important that we take notice of this research, because physical inactivity is a risk factor for heart disease, which continues to be the leading killer of Australians,” he said.

In August, the Australian government launched its “Move It Aus” campaign, aimed at coaxing Australians away from their screens to “Find Your 30”: 30 minutes of heart-rate-raising exercise.

The Australian Sports Commission described Move it Aus as “Life be in it 2.0”, referring a similar campaign launched in the 1970s.

KERRIE FITNESS – Shares – Vigorous exercise determines successful ageing

17-Aug-2018

The data showed that older adults who participated in more than 5000 METs of exercise each week saw the greatest resection in chronic disease.

The researchers compiled data from The Blue Mountains Eye Study (BMES) — a population-based study of common eye conditions and a range of other health outcomes in a suburban population, which started in 1992. The analyses involved 1584 adults over 49 years old, living west of Sydney. The sample participants did not have cancer, coronary artery disease and stroke at baseline and were followed over 10 years.

Information was collected from the participants on their performance of moderate or vigorous activities and walking exercise. This was used to determine total metabolic equivalents (METs) minutes of activity per week. Successful ageing status was determined through a questionnaire and was categorised as the absence of depressive symptoms, disability, cognitive impairment, respiratory symptoms and systemic conditions like cancer and coronary artery disease.

The data showed that older adults who participated in more than 5000 METs of exercise each week saw the greatest resection in chronic disease. The current World Health Organization guidelines recommend at least 600 MET minutes of physical activity each week. That is equivalent to 150 minutes of brisk walking or 75 minutes of running.

The researchers found that participants who engaged in the highest level of total physical activity were twice as likely to avoid developing chronic conditions like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, angina and stroke. They were also more likely to have optimal mental and physical health 10 years later.

While some adults may not be able to engage in high levels of activity, the researchers encourage inactive adults to do some sort of exercise and those engaging in moderate exercise to increase their levels of physical activity where possible to ensure successful ageing.

KERRIE FITNESS – Time to wander through Surry Hills, Sydney

With a beautiful spring day in full swing, what better way to spend it than wandering through historical Old Surry Hills in Sydney.  Checking into some of the beautiful old pubs, The Keg and Brew, The Dove and Olive, The Strawberry Hills Hotel, The Madison Hotel and The Royal Exchange.  Full of history, good food, good wine and good people.  Get out and about, enjoy life, meet some people, make a new friend.  Funniest quote of the day was from a publican to Kerrie…”Oh look at you standing there like a Princess”.  Never seen Kerrie blush so much!

So why don’t you wander in to KERRIE FITNESS and train with Kerrie in person?

KERRIE FITNESS – Blue Suede… Boots!

On a sunny Friday afternoon what better way to enjoy good company than to sit down and relax at Darling Harbour. Take in the views, good food, good wine and good conversation.  Take the time to check in with your significant other, wine makes it easier to ask the hard questions which sometimes need to be asked.  If you don’t communicate, how do you know you’re even on the right page? We do this regularly and find that it not only keeps our business on track but also our relationship.  Even after 23 years together, we take the time to make sure our marriage is all it can be.

So after some couple time in the city, how about some “YOU” time at KERRIE FITNESS, to check in and fine tune yourself physically?

KERRIE FITNESS – A healthy mindset

One of the best things you can do for yourself is stop procrastinating. Look out the window, is it sunny? Get out of bed and do what you love.  Get up, get out, get moving. Mental health is just as important as physical health. What’s more, it is so easy to achieve. Set yourself a simple goal for the day… walk the dog? Plant a tree? Visit a friend? Wash the car? At the completion of any of these you will gain a sense of achievement, and guess what? You will feel good. That is mental health.

For physical health, come train at KERRIE FITNESS. Kerrie can help you with what and how you should be moving and also offers advice on what to eat. All the while making you laugh, except maybe when doing burpees! But laughing is also good for mental health.

Keeping up with the times of busy lifestyles. Kerrie’s workouts have you in and out of her studio in just half an hour. No time to think about the outside world whilst you’re training. Sculpted from head to toe and feeling a million dollars by the time you leave.

After five successive “Finalist” nominations in the Campbelltown Local Business Awards, this year 2018, Kerrie successfully won the award for “Best Fitness Services”!
