Fighting Fit - Exercising with Stage Combat

People need exercise. They don't need rock hard abs. They don't need to bench press 500 pounds. They just need to get off their butts and away from the computer or TV and do physical activity. Gym memberships are expensive. Jogging on a treadmill or stair climbing machine is tediously boring. So what's the answer? Doing something that is both active and fun. More importantly, do something low impact.

When people get into traditional aerobics, or yoga, or pilates, or similar exercise routines, the problem they run into is just that. They're routines. Once you have mastered one routine, you need an instructor to give you another. Here is where stage combat saves the day. You can master the individual moves fairly quickly. Each series of moves works different muscle groups. If you get bored with one exercise routine, create another one, utilizing the same or different moves.

Take the exercise routine and use it to create a fight scene. Involve one or more friends, and you have a way to entertain your friends and family while getting a nice, physical, aerobic workout. Fighting Fit is a DVD that demonstrates how to use this process for your own workout regimen. What's more, you work out as hard or light as you feel you need. It's a common sense approach to exercise that's a bit more interesting than walking the same path every day.

Fighting Fit is excellent as exercise for weight loss and general fitness. If you want to build muscle mass or lift heavy weights, this is NOT for you. It's a great way to escape the gym atmosphere. You can play indoors or outdoors. More importantly, it's FUN! One final perk, Fighting Fit doesn't just occupy the body, it also engages the mind. It isn't a mindless exercise routine you can do in your sleep. You actually have to pay attention and think about what you are doing. Very few exercise routines occupy the mind as well as the body, which is why people need to bring a good book or have a television set handy while exercising.

Why is weight loss important? In April of 2008 I weighed in excess of 313 pounds. With proper diet and very low impact exercise, I am (as of August 2010) 245 pounds. I used to do the gym workouts, took the classes, but they just made me hungry, so I ate to compensate, and I didn't lose the weight. Utilizing a lower-intensity workout, I gradually lost 70 pounds and have managed to keep it off. In fact, I continue to lose more. The weight loss has solved several problems for me personally. Tendonitis in both knees no longer bothers me. Irritabe Bowel Syndrome no longer bothers me. Diabetes is no longer a problem for me. I don't remember the last time I felt sick. My doctor's advice was to eat a low carb/high protein diet and to take a brisk 30-minute walk 4 to 5 days a week. I used stage combat for a more interesting workout when I didn't feel like walking, and it worked. But that's my personal experience. Your results will probably vary.

This is a brand new concept. When it comes to new concepts and original thinking, we at Merry BanD Productions are full of them. But don't take our word for it. Check out what others are saying about the Fighting Fit exercise process.

The DVD will be available soon.
