WellnessFX Annual Checkup has landed and sure has made a big splash! Our new service (FREE for a limited time) lets you take control of your health by accessing and owning your data.
But what is the experience really like? Sure, it’s free, getting your blood drawn is quick and easy, and you’ll be able to access your health data from the palm of your hand, but is it worth your time?
We say YES. But, of course, do you expect us to suggest any differently? The best way to tell if WellnessFX is for you is through customer experience and word of mouth. We continually bring you these member stories right here on our blog. We encourage you to assess the data for yourself. It’ll be practice for when you get your blood results back!
As the conversations surrounding nutrition goes from ‘fat is evil’ to ‘what kinds of fats are evil’, we must also consider what we do to these fats (good or bad) before we consumer them. Just like any food, original nutritional value doesn’t matter if the path to get to your tastebuds is wrought with harmful techniques.
A big factor in choosing oils for cooking is how much heat that oil can withstand. The oils that don’t do well in a hot environment can turn rancid and form a lot of free-radicals, which damage our cells. When it comes to long-term health, free radicals are some of the worst things you can put in your body.
We’ve talked extensively about the benefits of an active lifestyle, and we don’t mean simply going to the gym for 30-60 minutes out of the day. While structured exercise should definitely be a part of your regular routine, studies show that eliminating prolonged periods of inactivity throughout the day is more important to long-term health.
There’s a variety of ways to increase your daily activity. Standing desks. Taking the stairs. Short walks throughout the day. Joining a sports team.
And, of course, biking to work. May is National Bike Month, and this week is National Bike to Work Week. Not only does ditching the car decrease your carbon footprint, spending the extra hour or so a day putting your muscles to good use can do a lot for your long-term health!
Stephanie Averkamp over at FitnessforWeightLoss.com put together this nifty infographic on the health benefits of biking to work. Here’s a brief overview followed by the actual infographic.
Blogger. Novelist. Student doctor. Husband. Health freak. Nature-lover. That’s me.
You might not think you know me, but unless you’re new to the blog (which is great: welcome!), we’ve met before. I’ve been writing for WellnessFX since last August and have brought you testimonials, health news, exciting updates, and button-preserving recipes to get you through the holidays alive. So, yeah – we’ve met.
I’ve long been interested in health, fitness, and writing and I landed the perfect opportunity of contributing to the WellnessFX’s media team shortly after sending off my applications for medical school. I’ll be attending the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the fall. I’m truly excited about taking what I’ve learned about preventive medicine during my time with WellnessFX and applying it in my professional career.
Now that we’ve been formerly introduced, I have a story to share. It’s time for my draw. This is the WellnessFX experience. Uncensored and uncut.
How many times have you seen the front of a magazine claim to get you the ‘abs you want’ by summer? How many times have you heard someone say they don’t want to gain muscle mass, they just want to ‘tone’?
We recently concluded our fireside chat series with Tim Ferriss, but the conversation on fitness never stops! Something Tim said about ‘toning’ and ‘spot reduction’ struck a chord, and we thought we’d let our audience know once and for all: the concepts behind these terms are myths!
