Additional Items of Note:

Leilani finds the following useful:

  • a journal [binder, web based, personal electronic, or on your computer at home. There are free online diet & exercise journals email Leilani for some examples.]
     

  • rain gear [for all those times in Northwest when it sprinkles you can be out there comfortable and dry]
     

  • good shoes [appropriate for the activity]
     

  • comfortable well fitting clothes & sometimes a hat is a good idea too [appropriate for the activity]
     

  • always a water bottle! hydrate! hydrate!
     

  • sunscreen
     

  • always wear the required protective gear for the activity [for example a helmet for bicycling or a personal floatation device when kayaking]
     

  • safety calls - please always tell someone where you are and when to expect you back when you go walking or bicycling by yourself. Please always take a cell phone with you - even if you don't have a calling plan every charged cell phone can call 911! And if possible, it's better to go with a friend or two!
     

  • Be visible! Reflective wear is great! Look for jackets with reflective material, buy reflective decals for your bike & helmet, look for floatation devices with reflective material.
     

  • Know the rules of engagement. For example: for bicycling know the rules of the road if you don't know take a class, read a book or go the library and look it up!

Recommended Sites:

The best resources are those all around us: our friends, family [and family of choice], pets, local community centers, recreational guides for our cities, and the local libraries.

Local community centers often have inexpensive access to gyms, weight machines, free weights, lockers, showers, treadmills, yoga classes, weight lifting classes, dance classes and other fun stuff!

Senior centers have great resources for our elders.

Local pools have adult swims, swim fitness classes and more.

Local technical colleges and local community colleges have swim fitness, yoga and dance classes at very affordable prices.

The King County library has exercise videos and dvds, books and audiobooks you can rent for free if a resident and you return it on time! I often rent videos and renew 1 or 2 times for a total of 15 day rental! I love the library!! Many of these resources are on line as well! Check it out! See what's all around you!

For outdoor wear and gear, recommend www.rei.com and www.outmore.com

For plus sized active wear including sports bras, yoga pants, ski pants, rain jackets, bicycling shorts, tankinis, and more www.junonia.com

Leilani is a bargain hunter at heart and occasionally shops www.ebay.com for her favorite brand name active wear, junonia, and shops www.junonia.com's bargain closet deals especially off season.

What to expect?

After the initial free consultation and health questionnaires, we decide if you need to see your physician to begin an exercise program. As a rule, it is always best to see your doctor, primary physician or naturopath before beginning an exercise program, but some individuals do not require authorization.

Next, together we set goals, incentives, and start to implement a plan of action. This is a customized program based on your preferences, time available, interests, hobbies, goals, and physical needs.

Then we continue working toward your goals incorporating rests, planning ahead for trips, vacations & holidays, and re-evaluating the program, goals, and progress.

Sessions can be at my home office in Seatac [Tues., Wed., Fri., or Sat.] The sessions at the office are discussion based and include reviewing action items, exercise and food logs. They can also include active, assisted and passive stretching. Additionally, sessions can be activity based like walks at close-by parks in Tukwila or at Green River trail in Kent.

Examples of exercise that either Leilani does for her well being or that her clients engage in: hula hooping, walking, kayaking, weight lifting at home, exercise videos, yoga classes, yoga videos, belly dancing, recumbent bicycling, ethnic dancing, gardening, bicycling, stationary bicycling, treadmill walking, bird watching with walking, golfing with walking, swimming, water fitness classes, dance exercise videos, Pilates, stability ball exercises, and dog walking.

 Exercise Myths!
 

Myth = No pain no gain.

Truth = Exercise shouldn't hurt and damage you, and it shouldn't feel like punishment. Exercise can be fun! Good nutrition can be tasty and satisfying!

Myth = I don't have enough time to exercise.

Truth = Exercise ideals only require a minimum of 30 minutes a day. If you minimize travel and prep time by exercising at home or on your lunch hour, every one has time to get fit!

Myth = All I have to do to lose weight is to cut calories, carbs, and/or fat.

Truth = Weight is not the best measurement of overall health. A person's medical history, genetic inheritance, frame, lean mass versus fat, nutrition, metabolism, stress levels, and physical fitness have to be holistically included in an overall assessment of health. Healthy fats and complex carbs are essential for bodily functions and energy.

Myth = A fat body is not a fit body.

Truth = Each person has to be compared only to themselves and weighed in with above mentioned criteria. A great health benefit can be gained from only losing 10 or 20 lbs. For some people, a rounder fuller body is ideal for them. One size definitely does not fit all.
