Funny Fitness Fridays Episode 5: Bacon Prevents Hair Loss

When San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to ban toys in the McDonald’s Happy Meal, they were finally taking a stand against big business advertising to children. Of course you can argue that parents are ultimately responsible, but the target is still children. Get your child a Happy Meal and they will be happy…Happy Meal = Happiness.

Tobacco companies are selling a nicotine dispenser full of toxins and unhealthy, cancer causing substances so why do we allow fast food companies to sell essentially an edible version…Fast food is essentially a sugar dispenser packaged to look like real food, containing various unhealthy substances. Have you seen what’s in fast food chicken nuggets for example?

Anyhow, in this week’s Funny Fitness Friday we bring back Jack from Jack in the Box with another short scene sure to get a smirk out of you.

Funny Fitness Fridays Episode 4: Buff Beautiful & Bitchin’ with Vera De Milo

When getting in shape the biggest fear of most women is the loss of a few bra sizes or ending up looking like a man. Unfortunately there is no such thing as spot reduction and your body chooses when and where to take body fat from. However, that is no reason to avoid working out. Most female fitness competitors maintain a very low body fat in general so this is the reason for their smaller breast size. Also, have no fear about supposedly looking like a man. It is impossible for a female to begin to look like a man structurally without some performance enhancing drug help combined with some really hard core and strict training. So get in the gym and stop making excuses before I send Vera De Milo aka Jim Carrey to your door for some personal training.

Funny Fitness Fridays Episode3: When I Grow Up I Want to be a Vegetarian

Vegetarians have it rough sometimes when it comes to food choices. Without meat in the diet it’s often difficult to get enough protein in the diet to maintain muscle gains, strength and lose body fat. Although there are many great sources of protein for vegetarians, most people don’t know what those sources are. This weeks installment of Funny Fitness Friday features Jack and his son from the American fast food chain Jack in the Box. His son explains why he wants to be a vegetarian when he grows up.

Funny Fitness Fridays Episode 2: Has your training hit the wall?

This week’s Funny Fitness Friday you’re sure to remember. When I ask if your training has hit the wall, I mean literally has it hit the wall? Sometimes training can become so mundane and boring as there is no new input into your workout routine. You can’t think of any new exercises to do or maybe your personal trainer never brings any new ideas or progressions to the table. Right now he or she is scratching their head going…”huh? What’s a progression?”  Routines the last for months or years are for inmates and your fitness shouldn’t be like doing hard jail time.  So in the words of a good friend of mine, “If you’re in jail…Break Out!! And try not to hit the wall like this guy…

Funny Fitness Fridays Episode 1: Fat people are harder to kidnap

FAT PEOPLE ARE HARDER TO KIDNAP

It’s Friday and the weekend is almost here. We’d like to thank all of our regular readers, comment contributors and those of you who simply stop by from time to time. As our blog has taken shape over the past 4 months it has evolved, not only providing informative information, but sharing ideas and broadening awareness. Continue to follow us in the upcoming months  as we have something new and awesome lined up for the new year. We can’t let the cat out of the bag just yet, but we know you’re going to like it.

Anyhow, one thing we’ve decided to do is broaden this site a little bit. We take fitness very serious, but we do realize then need for a laugh or two along the way and so we’ve come up with Funny Fit Fridays. Today’s installment comes as a direct result of a personal training client and good friend. As he was walking home he spotted an overweight man here on the streets of Bangkok wearing a T-shirt that said “Fat people are harder to kidnap.”  My immediate thought was if this is the only reason to be fat then I’ll pass. Obviously this guy was content with himself, but I challenge you not to settle and strive to change your lifestyle, get active and be healthy.

However, I thought it was interesting so I went home and typed it into Google in search of a logo and up came tons of images and video.  This particular video is apparently from a Marriott commercial shot in Singapore advertising an all you can eat buffet. God bless Singapore because you could not get away with this commercial in the United States, but let’s learn to laugh a little more as humor is the best medicine for us all sometimes.

Humor is a major part of a person’s overall health. According to Elizabeth Scott, M.S.

Here are a few links about the benefits of laughter…

Funny Fitness Fridays: Laugh & Lose Weight While You Shake that S***

With all this talk of stress and emotions affecting your ability to lose weight, we thought it necessary at Active Lifestyle to add a little laughter to your life. Did you know that according to stress.about.com:

A hearty guffaw will burn more calories than a nervous titter, but researchers at Vanderbilt University found adults burn an average of 1.3 calories per minute while laughing with their friends.  That’s about the same number of calories you burn while taking notes in a classroom or standing and talking on the phone.  But laughter has other benefits besides burning calories, including relief of emotional stress and a  workout for the muscles of the diaphragm, abdomen, back, and shoulders.  Read about the benefits of laughter from the Guide to Stress Management at About.com.

Now enjoy a little bit of a laugh while you Shake That S***
