Note from Christa: Those of you who know me would not be surprised to read that I’d think anything called “Sane Fitness” would be an oxymoron. After all, I’m the woman who practically has to wear a helmet to avoid a head injury during aerobics. I also question the sanity of those who actually buy those special shoes to wear on spin bikes. I mean, really, why pedal that vigorously only to stay in the same place?
Anyway…I read about these cards from Sane Fitness and thought…this might actually work! Practically Christa-proof. Plus, the explanations are easy to follow, there’s a picture for each, and they’re color-coded. And…the almost best part…the cards attach to a lanyard that keeps them altogether, and I can hang it nearby to check on what I’m doing.
If your idea of exercising is readjusting your driver’s seat, go to this website. Now. You can sign up for a free newsletter plus download samples of the cards. Oh, and if you’re a mommy-to-be, there’s a set of cards for you two too!
Have your previous attempts to incorporate fitness and a healthy diet into your busy lifestyle ended up just driving you crazy- adding to your stress level, instead of reducing it, and making you feel guilty?
If your answer is yes, then you are not alone. According to the National Eating Disorder Information Center 70% of women are currently dieting and 40% are continually gaining and losing weight. It has been proven that healthy eating and exercise adds energy and efficiency to your life. You can actually get more done in a given day and feel physically better at the same time.
With all the demands of the workplace and your home life, SANE FITNESS can put some much needed sanity into your daily routine. SANE FITNESS introduces – a fitness trainer in a box!
The SANE FITNESS QuickStart Deck is a card set that offers a steady-as-you-go, reasonable way to incorporate regular exercise and good eating into your jam-packed days. The QuickStart Deck is the perfect travel item for those business trips and vacations! SANE FITNESS was created for the woman-on-the-go who wants to stay feeling fabulous all day long and into the evening as well!
Although it can be difficult to find time to work out and stay faithful to a healthy diet while traveling, it’s not impossible!
Many women know that the secret to juggling the many priorities in their lives — work, family, housework, community, and…well… shopping — is always easier when we take excellent care our ourselves. But with everything else going on, how can we find the time to exercise and eat right?
The answer is in the question: if exercise becomes a habit, we actually find more time. There are no great secrets to getting fit by exercising — lift weights, break a sweat, eat healthy food — but putting it all together is a big challenge. How do you continue with a routine that energizes you, motivates you, and doesn’t get boring?
The Sane Fitness Cards are designed to provide simple instruction that help you exercise correctly everytime. Do the right exercises on the right days to get the most out of each and every workout.
About SANE FITNESS
SANE FITNESS was invented by a wife and business woman for women just like her, who never seem to have enough hours in the day to focus on herself, but understands the importance of looking great, especially on the big day!
Cardio – Indoors and Outdoors
The SANE FITNESS QuickStart Deck stresses the importance of getting your heart rate up before beginning your SANE FITNESS weight lifting exercises. “Getting your heart rate up for about 20 minutes can help burn the extra calories from constantly eating out on vacation,” says Beverley. Here are a few easy ways to spend 20 minutes of quality cardio:
- If your hotel lacks a gym, 20 minutes of continuous swimming in the pool will burn about 250 calories.
- Use the stairs -spend 20 minutes going from top to bottom. Walking will burn about 100 calories, while running can burn as much as double that amount. Another smart idea is to skip the escalator in the airport. Adding in extra stair stepping throughout the day will burn calories gained while snacking on the go.
- Walk everywhere -the best way to stay in shape while away from home is to stay active. Take a scenic stroll instead of using the bus or subway. Walk as much as possible and not only will you shed unwanted pounds but you’ll keep your fitness levels up – so you don’t have to start from scratch when you get home.
Get Creative with Weight Training
The SANE FITNESS QuickStart Deck program is based on a weight training regimen to tighten and tone muscles and to increase your metabolism. Most hotels, resorts and cruise lines have fitness rooms with free weights, but when you don’t have your full weight rack handy, there’s plenty of ways to get around the “I don’t have my equipment” excuse:
- Fill up two 16-ounce water bottles to serve as one-pound dumbbells.
- Jumbo-sized shampoo and conditioners can weigh up to 3 pounds each – just make sure you have an equal amount in both sides!
- Bring a resistance band in your bag. Most of them take up almost no room, and resistance can be adjusted to meet your weight needs.
The SANE FITNESS TM Experts
SANE FITNESS was not invented by a diet guru who preaches endless hours in the gym and a diet consisting of no sugar, no carbohydrates and basically…no fun! Instead, Sane Fitness was invented by Beverley Caen– a wife, mother and business woman– for women just like her, who never seems to have enough hours in the day to focus on themselves. Beverley Caen is the perfect example of an overextended working mother and wife who has found a way to make fitness and healthy eating a part of her everyday life. With a little help from fitness expert John Cruz, this Wall Street career woman and mother of three, developed an exercise program that could fit into any busy woman’s schedule.
John Cruz, fitness expert, is a native of Colombia, South America. His background in soccer and martial arts eventually turned into a profound interest for the human body and its adaptations to exercise. For the last twelve years he has been devoted to helping others understand the life-long benefits of a fitness lifestyle as a professional trainer in New York City. Since 1998, John has been one of the top trainers of the exclusive Equinox Fitness Club. He is also a “trainer of trainers” constantly giving workshops to other trainers on the science and methodology behind safe, efficient and successful training. He holds a B.S. in Exercise Science and Nutrition from Brooklyn College and an impressive array of recognized certifications that illustrate he is well equipped to work with anyone, from those with medical issues to elite athletes.
