ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal

ACSM’s annual survey of worldwide fitness trends is now in its 14th year. New to this year’s survey was the inclusion of potential new trends such as mind-body movement (e.g., tai chi) and lifestyle medicine. Other trends were more specifically defined in the 2020 survey. For example, virtual/online training was redefined as online training, water workouts were redefined as aquatic exercise, circuit weight training was redefined as circuit training, mobile phone exercise apps was redefined as mobile exercise apps, and barbell training was redefined as training with free weights. As in the past, the results of this annual survey will help the health and fitness industry make some very important business decisions for future growth and development. These investments can now be based on emerging trends that have been identified by health fitness professionals and not on the latest exercise innovation marketed during late night infomercials on television

Why is physical activity so important for health and wellbeing?

woman stretching

We know that staying active is one of the best ways to keep our bodies healthy. But did you know it can also improve your overall well-being and quality of life? 

Here are just a few of the ways physical activity can help you feel better, look better and live better. Because, why not?

It’s a natural mood lifter.

Regular physical activity can relieve stress, anxiety, depression and anger. You know that “feel good sensation” you get after doing something physical? Think of it as a happy pill with no side effects! Most people notice they feel better over time as physical activity becomes a regular part of their lives.

It keeps you physically fit and able.

Without regular activity, your body slowly loses its strength, stamina and ability to function properly. It’s like the old saying: you don’t stop moving from growing old, you grow old from stopping moving.

  • Health Minister Zweli Mkhize says the full purchase amount for the AstraZeneca vaccines was received Monday last week.
  • About a million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine were sold to the African Union by South Africa. 
  • Mkhize says the first batch of vaccines that is being delivered will benefit nine member states.

Health Minister Zweli Mkhize says the sale of the one million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to the African Union (AU) has been concluded. 

In a statement on Sunday, Mkhize said the department had in the past weeks ensured that all member states identified by the AU vaccine acquisition team as recipients were compliant and had obtained regulatory approvals, permits and licenses to roll out the jabs in their countries. 

Mkhize said the full purchase amount was received by the department last Monday.

“The AU and South African teams then ensured

  • PPE: A Head-to-Toe Task

    In the rush to provide treatment, especially during a pandemic, it’s easy to reach for the PPE basics — masks, gowns and gloves — and skip the rest. To truly minimize microbial exposure, it’s equally important to cover your head and your feet, too. Featherweight Bouffant Caps are barely noticeable when worn, but provide powerful protection against dry particulate. Caps also contain loose hair to significantly reduce the risk for contamination in critical care spaces. Anti-Skid Shoe Covers take coverage a step further by protecting

definition of health by Medical dictionary

health

 [helth]

a relative state in which one is able to function well physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually in order to express the full range of one’s unique potentialities within the environment in which one is living. In the words of René Dubos, “health is primarily a measure of each person’s ability to do and become what he wants to become.” 

Current views of health and illness recognize health as more than the absence of disease. Realizing that humans are dynamic beings whose state of health can change from day to day or even from hour to hour, leaders in the health field suggest that it is better to think of each person as being located on a graduated scale or continuous spectrum (continuum) ranging from obvious dire illness through the absence of discernible disease to a state of optimal functioning in every aspect of one’s life.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top disease expert in the U.S., tied gun violence to public health in the country during an interview Sunday after a recent spate of mass shootings.

HALF OF US ADULTS HAVE RECEIVED AT LEAST ONE COVID-19 SHOT

Fauci was a guest on CNN’s “State of the Union,” and the host, Dana Bash asked him his opinion on gun violence, which she described as “another epidemic” in the U.S.

FAUCI PRESSED ON WHY THOSE VACCINATED STILL NEED TO WEAR MASKS

“When you see people getting killed, I mean, in this last month, it’s just been horrifying what’s happened. How can you say that’s not a public health issue?”

The U.S. experienced a significant drop in mass shootings in 2020, the country has already absorbed several incidents, most recently on Thursday in Indianapolis at a FedEx facility where eight people were killed. President Biden referred to the shootings

Exercising to relax – Harvard Health

How does exercise reduce stress? Surprising answers to this question and more.

How does exercise reduce stress, and can exercise really be relaxing?

Rest and relaxation. It’s such a common expression that it has become a cliche. And although rest really can be relaxing, the pat phrase causes many men to overlook the fact that exercise can also be relaxing. It’s true for most forms of physical activity as well as for specific relaxation exercises.

Exercise is a form of physical stress. Can physical stress relieve mental stress? Alexander Pope thought so: “Strength of mind is exercise, not rest.” Plato agreed: “Exercise would cure a guilty conscience.” You’ll think so, too — if you learn to apply the physical stress of exercise in a controlled, graded fashion.

How exercise reduces stress

Aerobic exercise is key for your head, just as it is for your heart. You may not agree
