HOLIDAY FIT TIP: DE-STRESS AND WORK YOUR SMILE MUSCLES*

The holidays are filled with friends, family, and many things occurring at once which can be fun, yet stressful at the same time.

One way to keep the stress at a low but your spirits lifted is to incorporate some mind-body training of Pilates or yoga. These can be done on a mat, however, try incorporating a few movements from Pilates on your Total Gym followed by some warrior poses from yoga.

 

 

All exercises of these two modalities can be performed by using the Total Gym.

 

*Smile muscles; a common term in Pilates means: The muscles at the base of your buttocks, where the backs of your thighs insert into your pelvis. They form a smiling U shape under each buttock when engaged.

HELP TOM GET INDUCTED INTO THE NATIONAL FITNESS HALL OF FAME

Total Gym® CEO Tom Campanaro, has been nominated as a candidate for National Fitness Hall of Fame induction.

 The National Fitness Hall of Fame & Museum (NFHOF&M), founded in 2004, recognizes top industry professionals who have dedicated at least 25 years of their careers to the service of others; helping millions get fit, stay in shape and live healthy, happy and productive lives.

Along with five other candidates, Hall of Fame inductees will be chosen based on a public vote. Voting closes on November 30, 2012 and can be made by visiting www.NationalFitnessHallofFame.com.

INDUCTION CRITERIA

An Individual can be nominated for National Fitness Hall of Fame Induction Consideration if they meet the minimum criteria listed below:

* 25 or more years of, full-time, service as a professional in the Heath & Fitness Industry.

* The personal practice of “The Fitness Lifestyle”

* Genuine concern for the welfare of others.

* A nationally recognized, “Body of Work.”

* Reached the age of 50. (New age requirement started in 2012)

Campanaro is the creative genius and driving force behind Total Gym, the world’s leading manufacturer of functional and bodyweight training equipment.

Founded in 1974, he developed the Total Gym incline bodyweight trainer, a high-quality fitness machine that uses a person’s own bodyweight as resistance and encourages the use of multiple muscle groups together in each exercise—now referred to as “functional training.”

Originally developed as a fitness product, Campanaro’s company noticed a significant portion of their sales were to physical therapists, which helped expand their sales market into the physical therapy rehabilitation and wellness industries as well.

Recognizing a need to bring fitness to home consumers, Campanaro partnered with American Telecast to further extended Total Gym’s reach in 1996 with what is today, the longest running broadcast infomercial in history. The infomercial helped propel Total Gym to cult status with over 4 million users and over 1.5 billion dollars’ worth of Total Gyms sold through the infomercial and in retail stores in over 85 countries.

Now with commercial partners in 23 countries, Total Gym continues to lead the industry with innovative functional and bodyweight training products, in addition to its award-winning GRAVITYSystem® commercial fitness program that is currently offered worldwide.

In an industry with over  500,00 employees and approximately 30,000 businesses (according to IBIS Worlds’s Gym, Health & Fitness Clubs market research.), Campanaro has made Total Gym a household name and with it, has helped inspire over 24 million workouts per year worldwide.
