Group Fitness Classes for Weight Loss

Exercise should be about having fun moving your body in the way it was designed to move. It seems that exercise has become a negative word is today’s society. Too many times have I been lecturing to a group of students or adults and when I mention exercise they cringe. This should be exciting if I recall in grade school we couldn’t wait to go outside for recess it was our favorite part of the day. Now we work, work, work, go home and do more work, then sit down on the couch. We have taken the activity out of our day. Even in schools they are cutting back on physical education at a time when the country is at its worst in terms of disease and sickness related to sedentary lifestyles.

Group Exercise

Group exercise is a fantastic way to get together and have some grown up recess time. Make sure you do your research in your local newspaper, visit the parks and recreation website, or pop in at your local YMCA to get an idea of the classes and times they offer them. Make sure that you chose a class that meet two to three times a week. If you a beginner to fitness make sure the class is not too advanced you can work your way up. The last thing you want to do is take a class that is very difficult and get discouraged. Show up a few minutes before class or hang back a few minutes after class and introduce yourself to the instructor, many times the instructors are also fitness trainers that can give you some great advice one on one.

Be Consistent

The key is to not quit, one way to help when you feel like you are falling off the wagon is to have friends to hold you accountable for your goals. Make friends in the class and make a pact to stay in touch with each other to make sure no one gets left behind. Sometimes things come up; family, work, and sickness happen but don’t use these things as repeated excuses. If you do happen to miss a class, make it your business to do a makeup day using another class or going out and doing some exercise on your own. If you are consistent with your exercise and workout program you will get the results.

Con: Monotony

Some group fitness classes like cycling and step aerobics can get a little monotonous doing the same exercises and motions day in and day out won’t challenge your body after a long time. You need variety in your workout program, mix it up a little bit. If the instructor in your class isn’t changing the routine enough try another class or move onto something with more difficulty. At some point you may experience a plateau with your weight loss it may be that your workout program has gone stale. Get help from one of the personal trainers or switch up your classes …

Out With Old Metal Fillings, In with New Porcelain Fillings

When your tooth becomes damaged from decay, fillings are used to bring your tooth back to its original shape and function. A filling not only corrects the problems that cavities cause, but also causes bacteria from causing additional decay.

Porcelain fills are also called porcelain inlays or onlays. Onlays are a partial crown that sets on your tooth, building its shape and strength; inlays are designed to fill in the space that a cavity or old filling creates. By using porcelain inlays or onlays, your dentist is able to strengthen and repair your tooth while holding it together; retaining as much of the natural structure and color of your tooth as possible.

Porcelain fills are indirect fillings, as opposed metal and composite fillings that are direct fillings. Indirect fillings must be sent in to a lab because they are custom made for your teeth and are made of porcelain ceramics. Direct fillings are put directly into the tooth, there is no wait time for a lab to create them.

Another difference between porcelain fills and other fillings is that the dentist will permanently bond the porcelain fillings to your teeth, and they are also custom made for your specific tooth and cavity. This means that your porcelain filling will be stronger and last longer than fillings made of other materials.

A porcelain filling will last up to 30 years, whereas other filling materials will need to be replaced as soon as seven to ten years from when they were placed. "Porcelain fills can actually increase the strength of a tooth," says Dr. Pavlenko "fills made of other material tend to weaken the tooth because of the need to drill more of the natural tissue."

Your custom porcelain fills can take a couple of visits to the dentist office to complete. During the first visit, the rejected part of your tooth or old filling is removed and the tooth is cleaned. The dentist will then make an impression of the tooth so that a dental lab can create a custom porcelain inlay or porcelain onlay. After the impression, your cavity will be filled with a temporary filling so that your tooth will not become more decayed or damaged while your custom porcelain filling is being created.

When your custom porcelain filling returns from the lab, your cosmetic surgeon will remove the temporary filling and permanently cement the porcelain inlay or porcelain onlay to your tooth. In order to enjoy the benefits of porcelain fillings, contact a cosmetic dentist in your area for initial consultation. …
