Get some help with your goals from WebRacing

We all know that goals are vitally important in achieving our fitness aims.

“I want to get fitter” could mean anything. “I want to be able to cycle 10k in 20 minutes” means something very specific. The first cannot be measured and verified whereas the second definitely can be.

WebRacing offers some very helpful tools when it comes to achieving measureable goals.

Firstly, the ability to exercise with other people provides the extra stimulus to push that little bit harder. Secondly, WebRacing produces a very comprehensive data set from each session. If you need to know how much effort you made, how far you travelled and how long it took, all that data is available to you. So over time, you can plot the progress to your goals in detail.

If you are serious about setting and achieving your fitness goals, consider using WebRacing as part of your programme. WebRacing is available for the home and as an upgrade of existing exercise machines. WebRacing is also increasingly available in health clubs as classes.

“Most adults don’t exercise enough …”

bbc.co.uk carried a sad but predictable story today.

“Most adults don’t exercise enough …”   it reported.

“It found about 8% of adults who were physically able to walk had not walked for even five minutes continuously during a four-week period, while 46% had not walked for leisure for more than 30 minutes continuously.

Researchers said 88% had not been swimming, 90% had not used a gym and around 20% of people over the age of 16 had done only minimal amounts of physical activity.”

Obviously some people will never bother to exercise. But probably many would do so if they were more motivated or found the activity more enjoyable.

We think the WebRacing range of products DO provide more fun and motivation. Explore the website and our videos, we’re sure you will agree.

Transforming Schools with Exercise

John J Ratey, MD, is an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Research Synthesizer, Speaker, and Author. He has published 60 peer reviewed articles on the topics of Aggression, Autism, ADHD, and other issues in neuropsychiatry.
His message is that fitter children perform better at school and have a more disciplined approach to school life.
This is because exercise “turns on” the Prefrontal Cortex area of the brain that is so vital to learning.
