    Guidelines to help children develop healthy habits early in life

    The World Health Organization (WHO) recently issued guidelines on screen time, physical activity, and sleep for children from birth through age four. The guidelines were issued in response to a 2016 report from the WHO's Commission on Ending Childhood Obesity, which linked rising rates of childhood obesity worldwide to a decline in physical activity, increased screen time, and inadequate sleep for young people. According to the report, an estimated 41 million children around the world who were younger than five years of age were overweight or obese.

    I rediscovered passion in the slow burn of failure

    Mona Ombogo 17th Jul 2019 00:00:00 GMT +0300 “Sometimes you have to step back to move forward. I sold my businesses, moved upcountry and took a year out in 2012,” says certified personal trainer Philip Namasaka. “When I came back to Nairobi, I finally got the courage to follow my dream for fitness.” In 2016, after 12 years of pursuing a multitude of ventures, Philip, 41, opened the doors to his true passion, Feel Fitness Centre. He did it with his partner Cathy Kilonzo, who's also a certified trainer and the originator of Afrobics, an African dance-based fitness programme. Feel Fitness Centre focuses on using space, movement, resistance and body weight to help everyday people find optimum fitness,

    Why You Should Devote 10 Minutes a Day to Mobility Training

    Try this right now: Get off your couch and sink into a full squat with your feet flat on the floor. Now stay there for 10 minutes. To physical therapist Kelly Starrett, you're not truly fit until you can do that. This simple challenge, issued eight years ago on YouTube by Starrett, owner of a San Francisco CrossFit box, addresses a fitness weakness that most men ignore, and it exemplifies his philosophy. Starrett preaches that working out should produce more than chiseled abs and bulging biceps. He wants the gym to restore mobility—that is, the raw range of motion that modern life, computer work, and commuting rob from us daily. Classic exercises alone can't fix this, which is why Starrett talks

    This Pop Star's Bonkers Training Regimen Includes Sword Fighting and Experimental Eyeball Surgery

    If you're looking to incorporate more screaming and sword fighting into your daily workout routine, Grimes has a few helpful pointers. The Canadian singer-songwriter is the new face of Stella McCartney's new eco-friendly Adidas collection, and she shared her absurd training regimen to coincide with the campaign's launch in a jarring, freewheeling Instagram post. Her "360 approach to fitness" begins with a "healthy cellular routine" that allows her to "maximize the function of my mitochondria with supplements such as NAD+, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Magnesium, etc." She claims this is also to promote ATP (the molecules used to store and transport energy within your cells), and calls the process "incredibly
