Healthy Retirement: Save by Being Proactive

Despite all the negative news about the state of retirement savings, 48% of us didn’t save more in 2018… and 13% of us actually saved less.

The shortfall isn’t just about money – it’s about our health too.

A new research report about leveraging your health to drive 401(k) contributions says you can boost your retirement savings to the tune of $100,000 or more simply by making better health choices.

The research indicates that people who take their healthcare seriously make better financial decisions and have more money to save.

High blood pressure – the plague of so many of us gray hairs – isn’t taken seriously by most. Twenty percent of those diagnosed with it don’t take their medication, and 50% stop taking it within six months.

But if people with hypertension take their medication, they can realize as much as $2,000 per year in savings on healthcare costs

How are Fitbit Users Finding New Ways to Achieve Their Fitness Goals?

Shelter-in-place orders have changed much of Fitbit users’ everyday lives. We’ve been staying home, getting more quality rest (a happy surprise), cooking more, and finding new ways to stay active, given that our step counts are down. But, our resting heart rates have improved across the board, which is great news for heart health.  

When it comes to staying active, we’ve had to get creative—and Fitbit users have risen to the challenge. In fact, data from mid-April shows that more users exercised one to two times a week in April 2020 than in April 2019. (Exercises were either auto-detected or manually logged on users’ Fitbit devices, and lasted for a duration of at least 15 minutes.) This rings true across major American cities including San Francisco, Denver, and New York, as well as global cities including Paris, Seoul, and Tokyo—with Madrid being one notable exception.  

Note that week 15 is

Tips for Buying Exercise Equipment

When daily trips to the gym aren’t possible or gym memberships seem a little too expensive, home exercise equipment might seem like a good alternative. But before you spring for new equipment, make sure you’re not buying the fitness fiction of quick, easy results. When shopping, look for equipment that suits your lifestyle and budget, and shop around to get the best price.

What the Ads Say

Home exercise equipment can be a great way to shape up — but only if you use it regularly. Ads promising quick, easy results are selling a line, not a reality. Here are some claims to watch for:

It’s quick, easy, and effortless.

Whether they’re promoting shoes, clothing, or equipment, some advertisers say their products offer a quick, easy way to shape up and lose weight — without sound science to back it up. There’s no such thing as a no-work, no-sweat way

“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence” – Vince Lombardi

I wish that it was me who first thought to say “if we chase perfection we can catch excellence”, because if anything sums up the ethos of Ultimate Performance personal training this phrase is it.

We constantly strive to be perfect Personal Trainers, in the perfect gym environment, with the perfect personal training methodology. But as we all know, attaining anything close to perfection is always a challenge, especially in something as inherently complex and individualised as personal training.
