With the web at our finger tips we have an unlimited resource for information related to health and fitness. Here are a couple of web sites you might want to check out.
www.choosetomove.org .Designed by the American Heart Association and the Cooper's Institute, it's a 12-week program that targets women age 25 and older, focusing on physical activity, nutrition and weight management.
www.healthcalc.net . This site helps you calculate all kinds of individualized fitness information, including your target heart rate, body mass index (BMI is a weight relative to height ratio.) or your cardiovascular fitness level.
www.realage.com . Sure, you know how old you are chronologically, but what about in terms of fitness and wellness? Are you older or younger than your "real age?"
This site takes you through a comprehensive health, lifestyle, medical history and fitness questionnaire to determine your true age. Once that's calculated, you'll be provided with an in-depth "age-reduction planner" that provides ways — in terms of your fitness and lifestyle — to add years to your life and avoid needless aging.
I like this site. The age-reduction planner is very practical and informative and since it's based on the answers you've provided, it's very personalized. This site also e-mails you, keeping you informed and motivated with lots of fitness tips. The e-mails are not to obnoxious and you can pick and choose what articles you want to read, which will open in another browser window.
www.onhealth.com . It has numerous sections including women, family, baby, alternative medicine, lifestyle, food & fitness, library and shopping.
