How to Get Rid of Age Related Body Aches and Pains

As we get older we don't just start to look older but we often start to feel older, not so much mentally but physically. Even if we didn't do anything physical we start to feel the effects of aging in our bodies, those aching backs, knees, feet, shoulders... especially after we have been resting or sleeping and get up. Things we use to do in younger years without thinking about it are now painful, even tying your laces on your shoes or bending down to get something out of a low cupboard.

Is there a way to stop the effects of time on our bodies when it comes to Age Related Aches and Pains? Yes and no... We can always resort to remedies like aspirin or pain killers but that will only mask what's going on with our bodies.

We can also add supplements that are specifically designed to help with inflammation like MSM, Glucosamine, Fish Oils, Turmeric to name a few. I would say supplements are a better solution than pain killers but again they don't necessarily address the real problem which I believe is lack of use.

By lack of use I mean lack of being active and making your body work a little bit, the old saying if you don't use it you lose it is so true here. By simply getting off your but and being active you can reduce those body aches and Pains dramatically. I recommend an activity that hits your entire body like yoga, swimming, weight training. You don't have to kill yourself doing it but make sure to make this a regular ongoing part of your life, be active in some sort of way most days. You will probably find that on your days off that those Aches and Pains can creep back up on you so that will be motivation to keep going.

The down side to being active is that you may experience some new Aches and Pains but those are the good ones that come from pushing your body, they are generally going to be muscle pain and believe me it's much better than body or joint pain!

Can we reduce pain entirely as we get older? Nope but we can make it a lot better and the more we keep busy the better we will feel as we get older.


Fat Shaming - This One is Going to Set Off a Few Nerves

I know this video will probably hit a few nerves with people as we live in a very politically correct society where we all must be very careful not to step on anyone's toes... But is this always a good thing? Are there times when you need to speak up and say something even if it may offend or upset other people? Is it worth it if your best interest are at heart and you are truly trying to help them.

We are so concerned not to make people feel bad in any way these days that we keep our mouths shut, but is that helping people really? If you had a piece of food in your teeth or toilet paper on your shoe, you would want someone to tell you and yes it would be a bit embarrassing. It's more embarrassing if nobody tells you and you go on the entire day like that...

The subject in this video is a lot different than food in your teeth or toilet paper on your shoe but I feel the similarity in my analogy is that we need to say something even if it is not a conversation either people are looking forward to having. Fat Shaming is never OK but does that mean we simply ignore the fact that a loved one or good friend is hurting, even killing themselves with the food they are eating and lifestyle they are living?


The Only Three Ways to Lose Weight

When it comes down to it there are only three ways you can lose weight and they don't all have to do with exercise or dieting, well at least not all together...

What I'm going to share with you here is nothing new and really is just basic common sense! What's wrong with common sense? Why do things need to be over analyzed and over complicated to work? Well they don't. I think often times people or perhaps in this case trainers want to make the process of losing weight into a detailed and complex process that you can only achieve by hiring a fitness trainer or buying an eBook on the subject.

Nope I'm not selling anything and this info is all free, all you have to do is listen and watch my YouTube video on "The Only Three Ways to Lose Weight" and it will all become crystal clear.


Getting the 1993 Ducati 750 Super Sport on the Road

It’s been long time coming but here is the last bit of my journey to get my 1993 Ducati 750 Super Sport licensed and on the road! I know not everyone is going to be interested in a motorcycle video since this is a fitness channel but a lot of people did mention to me that they wanted to know more about my Ducati and how it was all going. Besides even if you have never owned a motorbike they are super cool to look at and listen to :)

In this “Getting the 1993 Ducati 750 Super Sport on the Road” YouTube video I go through the final process I need to do to get my Ducati 750ss registered and licensed for road use. This final step requires me to get BC Vehicle Inspection done where an authorized mechanic inspects the vehicle to make sure it complies to all the road use standard in place here in Canada BC.

You may want to go back a few months and see where this all started but for now come along with me and watch and see if I make this happen?
