But what do our members actually have to say? Is it worth it? Does it have any real world applications?
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!
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.
Want to feel better, have more energy or simply find out what’s going on inside your body, but don’t know where to start? The answer most often is in your blood!
WellnessFX is continually pushing the envelope when it comes to healthcare revolution, especially considering the current changes in America. We can only expect longer wait times for doctor appointments, shorter actual visits, and fewer take-away’s on how to be pioneers of our own health. e-Checkup fulfills WellnessFX’s desire to open the product experience to a broader audience and give people access to their health data on their schedule and on their terms.
And a special feature new to this year is Wildflower Squared (WF2) – the ultimate, slightly insane challenge of completing the long distance triathlon (1.2 m swim, 56 m bike, 13.1 m run ) followed by the Olympic distance triathlon (1.5k swim, 40k bike, 10k run) on Sunday, May 5.
From an exercise science standpoint, it’s well-known that stand-alone events such as a marathon or an Ironman triathlon can create a metabolic firestorm in the body that results in long term oxidative stress, inflammation, immune system deficits, and joint damage that persists for up to several weeks after a extreme endurance effort (check out studies like this and this to see just how much stress these events can create).
In other words, these type of sufferfests aren’t exactly healthy, but they sure as heck can be fun, challenging, and a great way to get extreme bragging rights.
But what about taking it to the next level and not just settling for one hard event, but doing back-to-back tough triathlons like WF2? Are you curious what happens to the human body when put through such a rigorous one-two-punch protocol?
