Canadians should move to stave off a cold
Many folks in Canada are trying to make the holiday season more recession-friendly this year. Some have decided to cut back on gifts, others are hosting get-togethers in place of buying presents for friends.
However, no smart Canadian should skimp on their health this fall - and a great way to stay healthy is to stay fit. In other words, don't cut back on purchasing new fitness equipment, even if your cousin isn't getting those diamond earrings this year.
A recent article in the Montreal Gazette examined some concerns about H1N1's transmission through fitness equipment. Individuals should keep fitness equipment clean, sanitized and properly stored, in order to minimize the spread of any germs.
While it is still okay to head to the gym if you're fit and healthy, individuals with weaker immune systems may want to work out at home. This means it's the perfect time to pick up new fitness equipment. For example, a balance ball can help strengthen and tone the legs, abs and arms.
Those who want to learn Pilates will find home fitness equipment to be sleek and cheap. All you need is a mat, instructional DVD and some resistance bands, for more advanced workouts.
