Tracy Anderson Brings Her Method to Men

Tracy Anderson Brings Her Method to Men | Health Fitness & Inspiration | Scoop.it

"YOU ARE HOW YOU MOVE," SAYS TRACY Anderson, crossing her sinewy legs. "You don't want to be strong and clumsy, like a bison; you want to be strong and agile, like a jaguar." If you haven't heard of the 38-year-old, five-foot-tall trainer, it's likely because she's built her rep sculpting the bodies of A-list ladies—including Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwyneth Paltrow (who even became a business partner)—not lads, but that's changing. She has quietly added male clients like Robert Downey Jr. and Matthew McConaughey to her roster and is now targeting the rest of mankind."

Mental Activity and eXercise (MAX) Trial:  Trial to Enhance Cognitive Function in Older Adults

Mental Activity and eXercise (MAX) Trial:  Trial to Enhance Cognitive Function in Older Adults | Health Fitness & Inspiration | Scoop.it

The prevalence of cognitive impairment and dementia are projected to rise dramatically during the next 40 years, and strategies for maintaining cognitive function with age are critically needed. Physical or mental activity alone result in relatively small, domain-specific improvements in cognitive function in older adults; combined interventions may have more global effects.

Participants A total of 126 inactive, community-residing older adults with cognitive complaints.

Interventions All participants engaged in home-based mental activity (1 h/d, 3 d/wk) plus class-based physical activity (1 h/d, 3 d/wk) for 12 weeks and were randomized to either mental activity intervention (MA-I; intensive computer) or mental activity control (MA-C; educational DVDs) plus exercise intervention (EX-I; aerobic) or exercise control (EX-C; stretching and toning); a 2 × 2 factorial design was used so that there were 4 groups: MA-I/EX-I, MA-I/EX-C, MA-C/EX-1, and MA-C/EX-C.

Results Participants had a mean age of 73.4 years; 62.7% were women, and 34.9% were Hispanic or nonwhite. There were no significant differences between the groups at baseline. Global cognitive scores improved significantly over time (mean, 0.16 SD; P < .001) but did not differ between groups in the comparison between MA-I and MA-C (ignoring exercise, P = .17), the comparison between EX-I and EX-C (ignoring mental activity, P = .74), or across all 4 randomization groups (P = .26).

Conclusions and Relevance In inactive older adults with cognitive complaints, 12 weeks of physical plus mental activity was associated with significant improvements in global cognitive function.

Another feather in the cap of exercise. The benefits on blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, muscle and bone strength are well known. In addition, now, this study showed a significant benefit on cognitive (thinking) ability with exercise (moderate intensity, 60 minutes, 3 x / week). There was no added benefit of mental activity such as performing games to enhance the speed and accuracy of visual and auditory processing.
Exercise: low risk, multiple benefits, low cost.
