South Windsor Neck & Back - February 2019

Each Valentine’s Day, people all over the world rush to the store to buy chocolates and all the ingredients necessary to whip up a romantic dinner for two. Unfortunately, these calorie-laden holiday traditions can undermine the fitness resolutions you made just six weeks before. Instead of throwing your goals by the wayside this February, why not make fitness a couples activity? The National Library of Medicine published a study showing that couples who focused on their health together went to the gymmore often and reported feeling more connected in their relationship. These findings were corroborated by a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Scientists claimed that partners who exercised together reported higher levels of happiness and satisfaction in their relationship. If you and your sweetheart are looking for a romantic way to burn some calories this month, here are some great workout ideas for two. Together Stay Together INTRODUCING Optavia! Chiropractic care is versatile, which means that our experts at South Windsor Neck and Back treat a variety of patients with both unique and routine challenges. Our goal is to not only help patients overcome these roadblocks but to also see them reach their optimal level of health. It’s always been our interest to address all areas of health and wellness, including unwanted additional weight, poor nutrition, and bad lifestyle habits. Because of this goal, we are excited to introduce a new program that we know will give you and your loved ones the results you’re looking for and need. Optavia is a nutritional education plan based on scientific practices and is designed to propel you into healthy, rapid weight loss. The average pounds lost within a month on this program range from 15–20 pounds. The program focuses on balanced nutrition with a goal to teach participants how to live a naturally healthy life. Optavia is designed to instill new habits within your routine through healthy (and yummy) shakes and snacks, not only setting you up for success but also for continued progress as you move away from the program.

Why You Should Exercise With Your Significant Other

Play Catch! Grab a medicine ball and do some overhead passes, feet-to-feet situp passes, and back-to-back twists with each other. All of these easy at-home workouts help build a solid core. Go for a Run! If the weather is nice, the two of you can lace up and hit the pavement together. You could even make a couples playlist to listen to as you run. If the cold temperatures are preventing you from enjoying the great outdoors, head to the gym and challenge each other on side-by-side treadmills. Try Some Rock Climbing! This is a great way to get a good workout while simultaneously building trust with your partner. Most rock-climbing gyms offer classes in belaying, and staff members can give you tips to improve your form. Sign up to work with an instructor and test your personal limits together.
