How to Lose Six Pounds in Two Weeks

Posted on

Surprised? But that’s true! You can easily lose near about six pounds of your body weight if you follow the weight loss tips described here. They worked just worked wonders in my case, and I lost whopping six pounds in just 2 weeks. I am sure you can easily win your battle against weight gain the way I did!

Here are the tips:

1) Cultivate a hobby that requires some physical activity such as gardening. I cut grass in my garden every alternate day using a push mower. This is an amazing workout, which kept me occupied for around 4-6 hours.

2) Drink at least 10 glasses of water everyday as water helps you lose excess weight and enhances metabolism.

3) Maintain a food journal and mention all your activities in it. Also, mention what you ate throughout the day. This will help you keep a check on your diet and workout level.

4) Make some dietary changes by switching over to low fat foods. This will help you lose around 15 grams carbs per meal. If you are a non-vegetarian, eat more fish and chicken and cut down on red meat. Also reduce your intake of white bread, and include more fruits as snacks such as watermelon or fresh strawberries.

5) Join a gym near your house or workplace! A one-hour workout at a gym for only 3 days a week can help you lose weight.

6) Change your sleeping habits. If you have been watching TV late hours, you may feel hungry and eat more than you should. So, switch off the TV at nine o’clock and go to bed.

Set short-term weight loss goals as they help you achieve your long-term goals fast. This trick worked wonders in my case. Happy weight loss!… Read More

Why Start a Business in the Fitness Industry?

Posted on

Starting a business in the fitness industry can be a profitable and enjoyable endeavor. There are many different types of businesses that you can start in this niche market. You will need to do research and learn about fitness and general wellness to succeed.
Become a Trade Show Vendor:

A trade show vendor is an excellent way to travel and enjoy the fitness industry world. You can merge with a wholesale supplier that will allow you to sell their fitness products at trade shows. Research and find trade shows that are in your local area to set up exhibits. Even though people do not always buy at the trade shows, it is an excellent way to gather contacts and potential customers.

Many trade shows offer free seminars, guest speakers, and other fun activities related to the trade show theme. You not only get to make money with the trade show exhibitions, but you can also learn more about the fitness industry in general by participating in the events.

Become a Fitness Products Reviewer:
Starting a business as a fitness products reviewer is very simple. In fact, it is so simple that many people completely overlook this opportunity. During your spare time, you can read about and even test fitness products. Your next step is to write a review of the product and submit it to online companies that pay people for reviews.

For a good fitness product review, you will want to include average price for the product. What did you like about the product? What did you not like about the product? What were the features of the product? Where do you find the product on the market?

The average review is between 300 to 500 words. If you have a flair for writing and are already in the fitness industry, starting business as a product reviewer is fun and rewarding.

Become a Fitness Products Distributor:
Starting business as a fitness products distributor requires some initial investment for the products. Typically if you are going to be a distributor you can purchase the products at wholesale prices and in bulk quantity.

There are many ways to distribute fitness products. For example, you can join an affiliation program. Another method is to sell fitness products to local gyms in your area. You can even visit spas and resorts to distribute fitness equipment.

You can also join an affiliate program with a reputable company to become a fitness product distributor. You will need to purchase items ahead of time and can make residual income streams if you select several company’s affiliation programs.

Starting business in the fitness industry can be extremely profitable. You do not have to limit yourself to strictly one type of business, but you can even do several at a time. For example, you can write product reviews and submit to buyers during the evening hours or on your laptop while you are working as a trade show exhibitor.

As the old saying goes, when starting business for … Read More

The Cruiser

The Cruiser

A cruise ship or cruise liner is a passenger ship used for pleasure voyages, where the voyage itself and the ship’s amenities are a part of the experience, as well as the different destinations along the way. Transportation is not the prime purpose, as cruise ships operate mostly on routes that return passengers to their originating port, so the ports of call are usually in a specified region of a continent. There are even "cruises to nowhere" or "nowhere voyages" where the ship makes 2-3 day round trips without any ports of call.[1]

By contrast, dedicated transport oriented ocean liners do "line voyages" and typically transport passengers from one point to another, rather than on round trips. Traditionally, an ocean liner for the transoceanic trade will be built to a higher standard than a typical cruise ship, including high freeboard and stronger plating to withstand rough seas and adverse conditions encountered in the open ocean, such as the North Atlantic. Ocean liners also usually have larger capacities for fuel, victuals, and other stores for consumption on long voyages, compared to dedicated cruise ships.

Although often luxurious, ocean liners had characteristics that made them unsuitable for cruising, such as high fuel consumption, deep draught that prevented them from entering shallow ports, enclosed weatherproof decks that were not appropriate for tropical weather, and cabins designed to maximize passenger numbers rather than comfort (such as a high proportion of windowless suites). The gradual evolution of passenger ship design from ocean liners to cruise ships has seen passenger cabins shifted from inside the hull to the superstructure with private verandas. The modern cruise ships, while sacrificing qualities of seaworthiness, have added amenities to cater to water tourists, and recent vessels have been described as "balcony-laden floating condominiums"
The distinction between ocean liners and cruise ships has blurred, particularly with respect to deployment. Differences in construction remain. Larger cruise ships have also engaged in longer trips such as transoceanic voyages which may not return to the same port for months (longer round trips).[2] Some former ocean liners operate as cruise ships, such as Marco Polo. This number is diminishing. The only dedicated transatlantic ocean liner in operation as a liner (as of December 2013) is the Queen Mary 2 of the Cunard fleet. She also has the amenities of contemporary cruise ships and sees significant service on cruises.[3]

Cruising has become a major part of the tourism industry, accounting for U.S.$29.4 billion with over 19 million passengers carried worldwide[4] in 2011. The industry’s rapid growth has seen nine or more newly built ships catering to a North American clientele added every year since 2001, as well as others servicing European clientele. Smaller markets, such as the Asia-Pacific region, are generally serviced by older ships. These are displaced by new ships in the high growth areas.

The world’s largest cruise ships are Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas and its sister ship Allure of the Seas.

Gym Membership Prices – How to Make the Most Out of Your Gym Membership

Posted on

Joining a gym is a great way to motivate yourself to workout on a regular basis. The most common time people choose to join a gym is around the beginning of the year as a new years resolution. Another common time is the few months right before summer starts in the hopes of developing a beach body.

Regardless of when or why you joined a gym, it is unfortunate to let your gym membership fees go to waste. Gym membership prices vary according to location, however, the monthly fees add up and you will have wasted hundreds of dollars per year if you do not attend on a regular basis.

If you have been slacking off on going to the gym, you can turn things around using some of the following tips.

1. Use Every Piece of Equipment – Essentially, you are paying for use of every machine and weight in your gym. Make the most of your money and time by trying out each machine at least once. You may even discover new ones that you want to use regularly.

2. Take Every Class at Least Once – Most big gyms offer a variety of classes from spin classes to yoga. Take advantage of these classes at least once for each. You add variety this way as well as making new friends.

3. Use the Gym's Amenities – Does your gym include racquetball courts, basketball courts, pools, and saunas? Whatever the amenities, test them out at least once.

Those are just a few of the ways to make the most of your gym membership fees. Remember to add as much variety to your gym workouts to keep it fun and keep you coming back on a regular basis. It's not only good for your money, it's good for your health! … Read More

Building a Home Gym

Posted on

Building a home gym for a family is one of the best decisions one should consider, especially with our hectic lifestyle. Home exercise routines are the best way to stay in shape and healthy at a fraction of gym membership costs.

Why own an exercise space?

Home gyms are convenient and private. Some of us are not comfortable to go exercise with a lot of fit people whilst we are still battling the flab.Having to go to the gym before and/or after work is no fun either. You are either too exhausted or in a hurry.

The other benefit is that of sharing the same equipment with your family members instead of having a club membership for each. Then there is no waiting queue for a few popular machines. That’s convenience at its best, even if you belong to a club.

Some people see developing an exercise room as costly and tiring, which doesn’t have to be the case. You don’t need to rob a bank to get your home gym up and running, nor do you need a huge space. You can buy equipment selectively. Get only the essential yet efficient equipment. Alternatively use what you already have, like stair climbing, DVDs or jump roping.

How to build your exercise room?

Prioritise. Most machinery you like are probably unnecessary. For optimal results, prioritise your purchasing. Focus on the exercises you like the most. If you like running indoors, get a treadmill.

Aerobics first. We all need to do aerobics and therefore this should be on top in you list. Aerobics are good for your heart. Get some information on which aerobic exercises you can enjoy. You may get this from the Internet or exercise books.

Test drive. Sales people are so good at making you buy their products. I have been persuaded to buy a lot of stuff I really don’t need on several occasions. Don’t fall for what you are told, test various machines and make an informed choice. If it doesn’t feel comfortable for you and the salesperson says it yields the best results, don’t buy it.

Frugal gym. For a start one can get a few items that will keep him/her going. We recommend a:

-jump rope,

-set of dumbbells,

-exercise ball,

-aerobics step,

-exercise mat,


When not to build your own home gym?

If you can’t afford your own exercise room, just stick with the walking, running and any freely available resource. There is nothing as bad as being in debt for something you can live without. But remember you can build a gym on a budget.

If you won’t stick to your plan, don’t even start. The time to commit is before you dig into your purse. It is very important to list your reasons for wanting your own home exercise space. If you have well-written and valid health reasons, its then that it is justifiable to spend for it. Doing it for the sake of having a room … Read More
