Even after the band had been fitted, her weight continued to yo-yo because, as she puts it, ‘you can eat anything, really. Even unhealthy stuff like chocolate.’ Lauretta said people are sometimes surprised to see someone of her size leading a class but she points out that you don’t always have to be slim to be fit ‘My weight went up and down,’ she explains. ‘I needed to do more than diet.

Fitness rivals forced to get flexible after a boom in 24-hour gyms

on September 13, 2013 New research finds that physical fitness can enhance learning and memory in children. In their studies, investigators from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that aeorobic capacity or level of fitness was particularly linked to improvements in learning a challenging task. The research is published in the open access journal PLOS ONE by Lauren Raine and colleagues from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. For the study,48 children aged nine to ten were asked to memorize names and locations on a fictitious map, either only by studying the information or being tested on the material as they studied. Half the children were in the top 30 percent of their age group on a test measuring aerobic fitness, while the other half scored in the lowest 30 percent. When asked to recollect the information studied, children who were fitter performed better than those who were not as fit.

Aerobic Fitness Can Boost Brain Power in Kids

There will also be the usual evaluation tools that include Army physical fitness test scores as well as weight and body-fat measurements. Military “Power, Performance and Prevention,” or MP3, tests will be administered as well. With MP3, the Army tests a Soldier’s flexibility, power, balance, strength and coordination with the goal of predicting the risk they might have for musculoskeletal injuries. Soldiers will also be tested before and after using a not-yet Army-wide released version of the “Global Assessment Tool 2,” which is similar to the current GAT, but which now includes Performance Triad survey questions, Andrews said. In addition to GAT2, Soldiers will complete a knowledge and attitudes survey before and after the pilot which will help measure the effects of the Performance Triad. Besides that there will be regular discussions with the Soldiers and unit leadership to get their feedback on how the program is doing. “One of the things we’ll be looking at in the feedback is seeing what the co-worker effects are,” she said, explaining that these are secondary effects of the training Soldiers might provide to friends and family members.
