Some hard-hitting football quotes to get you motivated

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

This is a great time of year if you’re a football fan!
College football season opens this week, the NFL games count for real starting next week and most high schools kick off this month as well.
In honor of what many people consider “the greatest team sport,” and to help bring a little professional style motivation to your daily life and fitness regimen, here are some of my favorite quotes from the football world:
* “That field goal attempt was so far to the left it nearly decapitated Lyndon LaRouche.”
Dennis Miller
* “The pride and presence of a professional football team is far more important than 30 libraries.”
Art Modell
* “Football is an honest game. It’s true to life. It’s a game about sharing. Football is a team game. So is life.”
Joe Namath
* “Football is a game played with arms, legs and shoulders but mostly from the neck up.”
Knute Rockne
* *In life, as in a football game, the principle to follow is: Hit the line hard.
Theodore Roosevelt
* “Trying to maintain order during a legalized gang brawl involving 80 toughs with a little whistle, a hanky and a ton of prayer.”
Anonymous referee – explaining his job
* “It was an ideal day for football – too cold for the spectators and too cold for the players.”
Red Smith
* “I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first.”
George Rogers
* “I wouldn’t ever set out to hurt anyone deliberately unless it was, you know, important -like a league game or something.’
Dick Butkus
* “Most football teams are temperamental. That’s 90% temper and 10% mental.”
Doug Plank
* “Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein.”
Joe Theismann
* “ Football isn’t a contact sport; it’s a collision sport. Dancing is a contact sport.”
Vince Lombardi (Also attributed to Duffy Daugherty)

12 Days of AHF Christmas: A Sales Associate w/ a great plan

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

 

Editor’s note: To help get our loyal Internet followers ready for Christmas, and let them know about the many great deals available through At Home Fitness, I’m revealing the 12 days of AHF Christmas. Here’s Day 1:

“On the first day of Christmas, At Home Fitness sent to me A sales associate with a great plan.”

 

Walk into any of the four At Home Fitness locations and immediately you’ll notice a difference from businesses in not only the specialty fitness industry, but just about any field you can find.
At Home Fitness is Arizona’s top fitness equipment dealer, specializing in everything from the best treadmills and elliptical machines in the region, to home gyms and free weights, to exercise bikes and vibration machines.
This is much more than just a job to the At Home Fitness staff, fitness is a way of life. They use the equipment themselves, and study the market to keep up with the latest trends and innovations to give customers the best value for their money.
Whichever At Home Fitness sales associate assists a customer will listen to their fitness needs and questions, ask questions of their own, and ultimately provide the best options to consider.
Sure, the staff is there to sell fitness equipment, but they also have the knowledge and desire to give you the best plan to get your fitness level wherever you want to go.
People often come into At Home Fitness wondering things like should I get a treadmill or elliptical machine, what’s the difference between an upright bike and a recumbent bike, or should I buy a home gym or functional trainer?
The associates can listen and then show you the best fitness equipment to suit your needs and budget in a chain that features giant showrooms at the following locations.
* Scottsdale (6969 E Shea Blvd, Scottsdale, zip 85254,
phone 480-951-6951);
*Ahwatukee (14647 So. 50th Street, Phoenix, 85044, phone 480-940-1022);
*Gilbert (2810 S. Market St., Gilbert, 85295, phone 480-855-6044); and
* Desert Ridge (21001 N. Tatum Blvd., Phoenix, 85050, phone 480-513-1123).
Because of At Home Fitness’ size, knowledge and reputation in the industry, they are able to carry the best equipment at the best prices anywhere.
Treadmills, vibration machines, elliptical and many more types of fitness equipment can also be found on the website at www.athomefitness.com.

Ranking fitness gift ideas for Christmas

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas shopping. Once it gets past Thanksgiving, if you want to plan a big gift for someone it’s really time to get going.
Why not give the gift of fitness this Christmas?
Here are early five gift ideas to get you thinking, which I’ll rank from 1-5 going up the level of “awesomeness.” I’ll start with 1 (a low-ranking elf made it) to the top of the line 5 (Santa himself had his top worker make it, and has one himself).
1 Fitness accessories – Basic gifts such as heart-rate monitors, Dr. Hoy’s pain relief gel, exercise magazines and exercise mats shouldn’t break your bank, but can be nice gifts to give.
2 Dumbbells, kettle bells – Costing slightly more, give the gift of dumbbells and-or kettle bells. There are countless exercises you can do with these accessories and having them in home of the person you give them to will make it easier than ever to get workouts in..
3 Running shoes, apparel – Depending on what style running shoes and how much apparel you purchase, this could cost around the price of a set of dumbbells. Or, give a gift certificate to a good local specialty running store so that someone special can pick out just what they want.
4 Vibration machine – One of the best new ways to work out that I’ve come across in a very long time is vibration training.
Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV), also known as Accelerated Vibration Training (AVT), stimulates the body’s reflexes to result in alternating muscle contractions and relaxations.
Vibration machines can be used for many different physical benefits. Depending on the settings and way your body contacts the machine, a vibration machine can be used for stretching, improving balance, core exercises, strength training and even massage therapy.
These machines usually cost $2,500 or more for good quality ones, but they bring about amazing results and are really worth looking into. Some of the top brands are 3G Cardio, Power Plate and LifeSpan.
5 Treadmill – A top-notch treadmill probably tops my list of the top fitness gifts one could give, short of outfitting an entire home gym. Shop around when you buy a treadmill and understand that you’ll get what you pay for. Good treadmills also cost $2,000 and on up, but the difference in top quality brands such as Landice, Life Fitness and Vision Fitness is easily apparent in smoothness and sturdiness.

A six-pack of leap day fitness ideas

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

This Wednesday will be no ordinary hump day. It’s February 29, 2012, which is a leap day in the Gregorian calendar.
This is a date that occurs in most years that are evenly divisible by 4, such as 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016.
According to Wikipedia, years that are evenly divisible by 100 do not contain a leap day, with the exception of years that are evenly divisible by 400, which do contain a leap day. Thus 1900 did not contain a leap day while 2000 did.
Years containing a leap day are called leap years. February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year, with 306 days remaining until the end of that year.
Long story short, we get an extra day in 2012!
What are you going to do on this special bonus day?
I suggest working in some extra exercise. Here are six ideas to celebrate Leap Day by getting a little more fit.
1. If you already are on a fitness plan, change up your workout for something a little different Wednesday. Maybe go for a swim, bike ride or yoga class if those are things you don’t normally do.
2. Go for a 29-minute walk, or mix in walking and running.
3. Do 29 extra push-ups at the end of your workout.
4. Do 29 extra sit-ups at the end of your workout.
5. Jump rope 29 times in a row. If you mess up, start over.
6. If you don’t work out presently, use the extra day in 2012 to get started. Exercise for 29 minutes, even if it’s as simple as walking on the treadmill or outside, riding an exercise bike and stretching.
You have an extra day this year and those don’t come along that often. Take advantage of it in a healthy way.
Happy leap day everyone!
