It’s all in an ‘Exercise’ word…

Once in a while someone comes up with a better term for things we know and do every day. So, they make up a new word that is better and we use that new term instead of the one we knew so well.clipartthinking_150x151

Why? Well, because change is good. Good as long as it takes us in the right direction – improving communication so things are less confusing. This is helpful when using fitness terms because there is so much to try to focus on, remember and apply to your daily life.

So here’s some examples for physical fitness and well-being… Please take moment and send us your thoughts about fitness words you use that may not (yet) be in the mainstream, words you grew up with that changed, or words you aren’t sure of their meaning.

Cardio – Aerobic Exercises or any exercises that elevates your heart rate.

Core – I’ve heard these are the muscles between the knees and the shoulders. They generally mean all the muscles of the torso, including the oblique’s (muscles along the side of your abdomen).

Wellness – fitness but more of an overall well-being. This takes into account the whole mind/body, activity and nutrition and in general, your wellness as a person.

We love to share – will you share the terms that you use when telling your family and friends about your exercises? Any terms that you find misused? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

PS. We appreciate your support – thank you for stopping by – be sure to share with your friends!
