    Curtis Harwell Discusses How To Pick The Right Fitness Program

    in Fitness

    Ask yourself these questions to create a workout tailored to your needs and preferences.


    Fitness programs abound, from yoga and Pilates to step aerobics and strength training — either at home or in a gym. So which type of fitness program is right for you? Ask yourself these questions to figure it out.


    What is your current fitness level?


    You probably have some idea of how fit you are. But assessing and recording baseline fitness scores can help you set your fitness goals and measure your progress. To assess your aerobic and muscular fitness, flexibility, and body composition, consider recording:



    Your pulse rate before and immediately after walking 1 mile (1.6 kilometers)
    How long it takes to walk 1 mile
    How many pushups you can do at a time
    How far you can reach forward while seated on the floor with your legs in front of you
    Your waist circumference at the level of your hipbones
    Your body mass index


    Do you have any health issues?


    If you are age 50 or older, haven't exercised for some time, or have chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, it's a good idea to to consult your doctor before beginning an exercise program.


    It's also good to keep in mind that as you age, impaired balance, decreased elasticity of tendons and other factors can limit your exercise capacity. Injuries also are more frequent, and recovery takes longer. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't exercise or that you won't benefit from it. Just be sure to seek input from your doctor or an exercise therapist about how to create a program that's appropriate for you.

    The 3 Pillars of Strength: Increase Your Physical, Mental, & Spiritual Fitness

    in Motivation

    Having strength or "being strong" comes in many forms. 


    When people think of being "fit" or having "strength," they may think of physical strength, but that's just one piece of the puzzle. A vital piece, but just one piece.


    To be the best person you can be, it's crucial you're strong in all aspects of their life, which includes being strong physically, mentally and spiritually.  


    We ALL have room for improvement, and this is the premise for my new book: 


    "The 3 Pillars of Strength: Increasing Your Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Fitness."


    Section 1: Physical Fitness
    Finding exercises that work best for you, and being realistic with your goals and expectations.


    Section 2: Mental Fitness
    Learning to deal with life's' trials and tribulations; dealing with stress, and dealing with negativity in a positive way 


    Section 3: Spiritual Fitness  
    Finding inner peace; staying true to your convictions; not falling victim to outside pressures to do things you know aren't right 


    Each of these are important in their own right, but it's time to put all 3 together!


    Join me on blog talk radio where I give a preview of the book and elaborate on the importance of being strong in all 3 aspects of your life, as well as the benefits!


    It's time to become the best we can be! Knowledge is power!

    The Program RETURNS: Hello Again!

    in Sports

    If it feels like we have been gone awhile...it has because.....we were! After two years of THW Live, it was time for a change back. Yes in the offseason, The Program will be not quite on every Sunday but the old feel will return quick enough. People will remember the show as a no holds barred podcast where literally anything that was hockey went full tilt. 


    My sincere hope is that everyone enjoys the show as they did with the original podcast. Some things have changed but basically it will be a bit like old times with a 2014 twist. There will be interviews, there will be rants, and there will be disagreements. That is the whole point. It will be vocal and yet we may all laugh a little while learning something.


    The phone number as always is 1-347-826-7358. Most shows will be on Sundays and yes there will be some retro shows also. It will also signify a bit of a return for The Program website. Come join us as once again we tick the hockey world off the only way we can!

    in Sports

    As always we have an interesting little show tonight......sixty minutes then a bit more as needed from the home office somewhere in North Central New Jersey. Tonight if it feels like an Atlantic Division get together then it might just be. Personally I now write about the Atlantic on a couple sites. Ted Starkey would be our Buffalo representative. Tim Rosenthal takes up the Boston angle. Our guest Amanda Stein hails from Montreal, who has the best record in all the NHL for now. 


    There is so much to talk about -- everything from blown leads, to Sabres winning streaks during a snow then now flood emergency and much much more. The thing is this. We even get to sneak in what we are thankful for since Thursday is Thanksgiving. Yes the turkeys make an appearance TONIGHT!


    --------------------------------------------------------------------


    The show begins promptly at 8 pm ET. Also, the phone number is 1-347-826-7358. Do not forget the show will be available on iTunes for download a litle while after it ends. Come listen in. You'll laugh and then laugh some more!

    Tai Chi as a group fitness class

    in Fitness

    Greetings Group Fitness Instructor peeps!


    As I finished my tai chi practice this morning, I was inspired to record this show. 


    What's MindBody fitness? What does that even mean? I describe how I interpret MindBody fitness and why it is important that GFIs pay attention to this essential healing practice.


    Questions explored include:


    How do we adapt a tai chi class successfully to a group fitness format?


    How do instructors create a standard format for teaching tai chi to students


    Is tai chi for fighting or healing in the group fitness arena?


    Can fitness instructors learn to mimic martial arts forms effectively?


    Do instructors need to know the martial (fighting) aspects of tai chi to teach it?


    How long will it take before you can start teaching a tai chi class?


    How is a tai chi class structured for a 30-minute session?


    And more....


    You can connect to me on my Facebook page as MindBody Group Fitness Arts Foundation.
