How Your Rear End Helps You Live Longer

September 29, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

There’s a new player in the fight to stay healthy: your rear end. Use it less for sitting and more for standing and you’ll live longer.

That’s what a recent study concluded. Compared with people who sat for less than 3 hours a day, those who sat for at least 6 hours per day dramatically increased their risk of dying from any cause.

Stand Up for Health
Sitting too much turned out to be bad for everyone in the study, but even more so for females. Mortality rate in women who sat for 6 or more hours a day increased by 40 percent, while the men’s mortality rate increased by 20 percent for that same amount of chair time. In general, the more people sat, the higher their risk of death crept up. (Try these tips for moving more when you get chores done.)

Add More Activity
Do you log a fair amount of couch time outside of work? Well then, make double sure you have an exercise program. Those who sat the most and were inactive in their free time fared the worst. Mortality rates more than doubled in men and women in this category compared with those who sat the least and moved the most in their leisure moments. Basically, the more active you are all day long, the longer you’ll live. (Here’s an active hobby that leads to a longer life.)

“Lost 41lbs of Body Fat, 16% Body Fat,

Pant Size 38 to 32”

Over the years I’ve tried to stay active by playing tennis, running and working out.  However, this past fall and winter I did absolutely nothing.  The lack of activity along with by bad eating habits caught up with me real fast.  By the end of March I began thinking about my upcoming High School reunion in September along with a monumental birthday coming up in October.

I knew that diet alone was not going to get me where I wanted to be.   So when I heard about RobZFitness, I decided to check them out.  At my initial visit with Rob, I shared my goals and Rob discussed how his program worked.  His plan consisted of intense weight training, cardio and a supportive eating plan. From there, all I did was follow the plan and the results have been amazing.

Not only do I feel better and look better, I’m also healthier.

In fact, after taking medication for high cholesterol and high blood pressure for the past eight years, my doctor just recently took me completely off the cholesterol medicine and has reduced my high blood pressure medicine in half with the possibility of getting off of it too.

The results that I’ve achieved from Rob’s program has kept me motivated even now that the three month program has ended. I have lost 41 pounds of actual body fat, increased my lean weight by 9 pounds, dropped 16% body fat from 28% to 12%, and improved my body fat ranking for men my age from 13% to 93%. I’m eating healthier, I’m maintaining my weight and I’m even training for my first half marathon in October so I’m continuing to workout on my own with confidence.

Bottom line is that if you commit yourself to Rob’s program, it will work for you too.

“Lost 26 Pounds, 13.8% Body Fat, Over 12 Inches”

RobZFitness has changed my mom’s life and our lives too.  My mom’s name is Monica Alvidrez.  She started going to RobZFitness on 18 Apr 2009 and the results show! Unlike previous years, today she is more confident in the way she looks and the way she feels about herself.  She looks leaner and stronger more now than I have ever seen her!

She first started going to RobZFitness because my dad was deployed to Iraq.  She thought that is would be nice for her to get a full makeover in physical appearance before he returned home a year later.  So two weeks after he left, my mom started training with Taylor Green.  After developing a supportive eating plan to fit her diet and training needs she started on the path to her tremendous transformation.  After that first training session with Taylor, our lives were drastically changed!  We are now more conscious about what we eat and how much we are exercising. Our daily lives are now centered around workouts and a jumble of different classes she takes at the gym and mom always encourages us to exercise and eat right.

My mom has lost 26 pounds of body fat, increased her lean weight by 10 pounds, lost over 10 inches and improved her body fat percentage 13.8% from 32.6% to 18.8%.  Rob says she is now in better shape than 76% of women her age, up from 11% when she first started.

When my dad got home from Iraq at his mid-tour break he didn’t even recognize her when we picked him up at the airport.  Since Taylor at RobZFitness had helped her change her appearance and get her into shape my dad went back to Iraq determined to get into better shape.  He was not to be outdone by my mom!  It was all in good fun.  Our dad was well surprised and amazed at the changes she and the rest of us had made!  Who would have thought kids would fight over vegetables?  Thank you very much Taylor Green and RobZFitness!   We will miss you Taylor, but we’ll be thinking of you in Germany!
