[07/03/17]   In order to sell things, people often throw words around, rather carelessly. We are a capitalistic bunch, us Americans, so we let these words slide by, in the name of "marketing" oftentimes unaware of how they might be acting on our ideas about what is true or actual. The fitness industry is prone to promising too much too soon. The whole "if you do this and buy this, then your body will be like this" type of sales pitch is surprisingly effective. This is simply NOT true. Because barre, yoga and Pilates are not and never will be cardio. Because weight training is so much more than biceps curls and when you come into the gym and immediately sit down at a machine you are completely missing the point! The answer is that we are looking for easy answers, we have become, in this technological age, perhaps prone to cause and effect being a process we think should be predictable. If you are truly looking to become more fit and healthy then you'll need to work at it. Connecting with the process more than the outcome and learning what it feels like to physically work hard. Physical work is natural to humans and has been for eons, if moving quickly feels uncomfortable then reconsider your relationship to your body and your ideas about discomfort. Perhaps more than any other thing in life, your body deserves and needs to be considered, cared for, understood. It is, after all, where we live and all we are and it cannot be separated out from who we are.

Dead butt syndrome: How to get your rear in gear

This is not uncommon, fortunately, with some targeted weight training, adding variety and intensity to cardio and spending less time sitting it can be fixed and affected joints like knees, ankles and low back will be healthy again. Research has linked sitting to heart disease, obesity, diabetes, even cancer. But there's another health risk from sitting all day: gluteal amnesia, or dead butt syndrome.
