Global Employee Health and Fitness Month

Are you a sitter or a stander? Did you know that doing either for more than 4 consecutive hours is not good for your body? 

SITTER: If you are sitting for more than 4 hours a day- this is a sedentary lifestyle behavior. This applies even if you go to the gym regularly after work!

Possible Ailments: Neck stiffness, heart disease, obesity, lower back pain, restless legs.

What can you do? Take periodic walks throughout the day to get water, during lunch breaks, or walk to a coworker's desk instead of sending an email. Get a convertible desk so you can stand throughout your workday, use fitness trackers or apps to keep track of your fitness levels. Also keep in mind how important posture is and having your station adjusted to fit YOU.

 

STANDER: If you are standing for more than 4 hours a day- risks start to set in. "Too much" standing is also based on your own circumstances, such as being pregnant.  

Possible Ailments: increased risk of chronic lower back pain, musculoskeletal disorders, pain/aching in legs and feet, flat feet, heel spurs and plantar fascitis, increased stroke risk, degeneration of joints and spine. 

What can you do? begin stretching throughout the day, get supportive shoes or an anti fatigue mat.  

 

Fun in the Sun!

Even though we just got snow, the sunny, warm weather is on it’s way! (Right, mother nature?!?) UV rays can damage our skin in as little as 15 minutes! To avoid damage, follow the CDC's recommendations below.

  1. Find Shade: Finding shade from a tree, umbrella, or other shelter can do wonders for protection from the sun.
  2. Protective Clothing: When practical long sleeve pants and shirts provide the best protection. There are clothing items designed to protect you from UV rays, even a t-shirt which has an SPF rating below 15 is better than nothing!
  3. Protective Accessories: Wearing a hat with a brim that goes all the way around will help protect your face, ears, and the back of your neck! Sun glasses are a great way to protect your eyes and the soft skin around them as well. 
  4. Sunscreen: last but definitely not least is sunscreen! A good rule of thumb is to have an SPF of at least 15, check the expiration date (if there isn't one they are not effective past 3 years), and reapply every 2 hours. There are quite a few cosmetics out there with SPF in them! Just remember not to use them alone if the SPF is lower than 15.

The Environment and Your Health

In the spirit of celebrating Earth Day on April 22, we wanted to share a few ways spending time outside can be beneficial to your health!

  • Nature Heals - Being in or viewing scenes of nature helps reduce blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and even mortality (Stamatakis & Mitchell, 2013).
  • Nature Soothes - Viewing nature helps us tolerate and cope with physical and emotional pain better. 
  • Nature Restores - Provides a respite for our overactive minds, helping us relax and decompress (Ulrich, 2003). 
  • Nature Connects - A study done by Kuo (2003) found that people felt a higher sense of belonging in neighborhoods, reduced crime rates, and aggression the more trees and green spaces were incorporated

 Running outside

Environmental Wellness

Here are some simple ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle to help improve our environment for the future:

1. Turn off lights in rooms that are not in use

2. Seek alternative modes of transportation – walking, biking, carpooling or public transportation.

3. Start a garden in your yard or keep a few herbs/indoor plants around the house

4. Buy recycled products--and recycle your products as much as possible

5. Unplug chargers/appliances that are not in use (cell phone chargers, toasters, etc.)

6. Go paperless! Request electronic copies and get off your junk mail mailing lists! 

7. Invest in refillable drink bottles/mugs--and skip the straws!

8. Invest in reusable shopping bags and leave a spare one in the card for the spontaneous trip to the grocery store

9. Clean up trash in your neighborhood

10. Compost your raw food leftovers

Give it a TRI!

Have you always wanted to do a Triathlon, but not sure how to get started? The first step is setting a goal by choosing a race. 

The Epic Mini Triathlon here in Fort Collins, on May 26th, is a great beginner-friendly triathlon. This race features a short distance course with a 450 meter pool swim, 10 mile bike ride and a 2 mile run.

There's no fancy gear required either. Your swimsuit and goggles, a helmet, and bike with good tires (no tandems or recumbent) and a pair of running shoes can get you across the finish line.

At Genesis, we're here to help support you in meeting your goals and getting you ready for race day! Our personal trainers can get you set with the basic skills and fitness to have a great race morning at the Epic Mini Tri.

And if you need extra incentive to get out to try something new, Genesis Members get $15 off their Epic Mini entry using code GENESIS15 during registration. Don't wait too long though! Race slots are filling up and the deadline to guarantee a participant t-shirt and finisher medal is April 19th!

March is National Nutrition Month!

Trying to eat healthier can be a daunting task; we've been there too! To celebrate National Nutrition Month (without that extra cookie!) we've got some simple ways to improve your nutrition on a daily basis. 

  • Drink more water - filling up on water from morning to night does great things for the body. Try to replace sugary drinks with water. Keeping a reusable water bottle near you at all times can help!
  • Eat a variety - try to fill your plate with different colors and types of foods. For example, a meal consisting of broccoli, chicken, brown rice and grapes contains a variety of nutrients.
  • Track portions/calories - try to keep a food diary or use a food tracking app (My Fitness Pal, FitBit, Fooducate, etc.) to gauge how big your portions are as compared to serving sizes. Adjust portions as needed to avoid over-consumption.
  • Pay attention to how you feel after meals - if you notice gut discomfort or other symptoms after a meal, pay attention to what you just consumed and use a process of elimination to determine the type of food you may need to remove from your diet.
  • Reduce consumption of processed foods - boxed, bagged, and frozen items tend to be more processed and less nutritious. When grocery shopping, try to stick to the outside perimeter where more of the whole foods are located. Fill your cart with these items first!

Shhh! We're Recording a Podcast - E. 3: Summit!

Friday, June 22 2018 5:04 PM

On this episode of “Shhh! We’re recording a Podcast”, Sarah talks to two frequent summiters of Colorado’s 14,000 ft peaks about what to expect when hiking a 14er! Jolee Yager, Miramont by Genesis yoga instructor and massage therapist extraordinaire, and Justin Pearl, a Miramont by Genesis personal trainer andall-around rock star, join Sarah in the conversation about what gets them up a mountain. They’ve got tales to tell and we’ve got trails to hike! 

Have you looked up at the mountains wondering how to power yourself to the top? We’ve got the answers for you! We talk about good choices for food to eat, layers to wear, how to prep, and those extra little things you might want to throw in your pack. Jolee and Justin also dive into their inspiration to summit those peaks.

Listen now: https://soundcloud.com/user-880358254/summit-get-ready-for-colorados-14ers 

Take a look at some of the websites mentioned in the podcast and then get your hiking shoes ready and get out there!
