Have more sex

Dating, Fitness 2 Comments »

Here are some reasons to have more sex, courtesy of Men’s Health:

  • Sex as exercise. Making love three times a week burns off 7,500 calories over the course of a year, which is equal to jogging 75 miles.
  • The heavy breathing that goes along with sex raises the amount of oxygen in your cells, which helps keep organs functioning at their best.
  • When men have sex, or do any type of physical workout, they release testosterone into their system. This testosterone works to help keep men’s bones and muscles strong.
  • Having regular sex can lower your cholesterol level.
  • Did you know having sex can actually HELP your headache. The excitement that comes with sex lower levels of certain types of pain.
  • Sex is known to lower stress levels.
  • Regular lovemaking can increase a woman’s estrogen, which can protect her heart and keep her vaginal tissues more supple.

buffguy2.jpgI’m pretty excited to be getting in shape. Before I moved to Calgary at the beginning of the year, my main exercise was hockey twice a week, lots of walking, and occasionally using the gym in my building. Since arriving in Calgary, I’ve been pretty inactive. Just started playing hockey again, and am starting a new program.

I’ve hooked up with True Fitness Wellness and Spa, where I have a plan tailored to me. I’ll be meeting with an in-house nutritionist to help get my bad eating habits on track. Physically I’ve started a personal training regime with Ken Andrukow. Ken was an exec in the corporate world, but decided to pursue his passion for fitness. He’s created a pretty amazing facility. One side is dedicated to training with all the latest equipment, and rooms for yoga and pilates classes. The other side features a beautiful spa with pedicure/manicure area, a couple of rooms for skin care, and my favourite - massage rooms. My muscles will definitely need some work by weeks’ end.

One of the things I like about True, is that you can’t just walk in any old time and randomly move from machine to machine. If you’re in there, you’re with your personal trainer. This is good because it forces you to get the most out of your time cause there’s someone giving you a little push, but I think it makes it a more professional environment to work out in. Ken isn’t like a drill sargeant, which is nice…he works you hard, but in a calm way. You can’t beat the sore muscles you have after a good workout, cause you know your body is changing for the better.
