ActiveForever and Laser Gym Present Core Laser Pro for Physical Therapy

ActiveForever-logo

The Core Laser Pro Exercise System Offers a Solution for Lower Back Pain, Balance Training and Athletic Performance.

By Nicole Girard

Scottsdale, AZ, May 21, 2013– Responding to demand from physical therapists and chiropractors, Laser Gym has introduced a professional version of its Core Laser Exercise System. This is a revolutionary laser therapy device that relieves back pain, improves balance, flexibility and core strength by encouraging targeted hip gyrations.

“This institutional Core Laser design was motivated due to many requests from health care professionals for an adjustable unit to accommodate the various heights and body types of different patients,” says Laser Gym Executive Vice President Ryan Jeffrey. “Core Laser Pro requires minimal space and takes less than a minute to assemble.”

As with the original Core Laser Home, the professional version works through what Jeffrey calls “direct visual feedback” training. Using a laser attached to an adjustable belt, a user stands in front of a target and traces lines and patterns via dynamic pelvic tilts and twists. Patients see and feel improvement in their flexibility and strength with just eight minutes of practice. The system is available at ActiveForever for $199.00

The Core Laser Pro differs in that it allows health care professionals to quickly and easily adjust the target, providing greater efficiency while requiring less space in a clinical setting. The Core Laser Pro, which includes an adjustable, free-standing Pro Target and professional carrying case, is available at ActiveForever for $599.99.

“We’ve already received very positive responses from our individual users, and from the major rehabilitation specialists and athletic trainers who rely on us to bring them the most effective and credible treatment and conditioning ideas,” says ActiveForever CEO, Erika Feinberg. “The Laser Core line is a perfect fit for our offering and audience. The demonstration videos on our website sum it up nicely, and specialists ‘get it’ just by seeing it in action.”

ActiveForever will accommodate any health care provider organizations with a Core Laser Pro educational demonstration.

ActiveForever and Aquabilt: Celebrating a Decade of Success Together

ActiveForever-logoActiveForever CEO, Erika Feinberg, knows a good product when she sees one. She was one of the first to believe in the revolutionary Aquabilt Aquatic Treadmill when it arrived on the scene roughly a decade ago.

Aquabilt Aquatic Treadmill

During the cold winter months, when you’re not using you pool, bring the Aquabilt inside for use as a manual treadmill. $1,249.00

That show of support meant a lot to Aquabilt LLC owner, Robert Adley. He and Erika remain business allies to this day. He was recently made aware of Erika’s upcoming birthday celebration. We’d like to share with you his heartwarming message:

Erika Feinberg, representing ActiveForever, was one of the original five customers who saw the Aquabilt Underwater Treadmill when it was the first aquatic treadmill and believed it had a future.

In the first three years I was travelling around the country and working trade and home shows by myself, which can be a daunting way of life.

I recall very clearly a phone conversation I had with Erika in ’04. She asked if I was going to be at the Phoenix Home Show. When I said yes, she volunteered to work the booth with me.

As I recall, there was considerable interest in the product, which was still unknown to nearly everyone, but no sales at the show. 

However, Erika was not discouraged by that result, and continued to support our product on the ActiveForever website.

Today we have nearly a decade-long business relationship. To me, that constitutes a meaningful level of support and loyalty which requires recognition. Aquabilt and I will be delighted to participate in Erika’s birthday celebration by providing ActiveForever with an Aquabilt Underwater Treadmill demo unit.  

Thank you for making me aware of this event.

Best regards,

Aquabilt Aquatic Treadmill

The Aquabilt Aquatic Treadmill model A-2000 is an aquatic exercise device that transforms your pool into a comprehensive workout system.

Fitness Vibration Cure-All: Weight Loss, Arthritis, Circulation, Well-Being

ActiveForever-logo

     Vibrate Fitness and Vitality with Whole Body Vibration

Straight from the stars comes the last word in all-encompassing fitness and health: Whole Body Vibration or WBV.

Originally used for cosmonaut training, the craze spread quickly throughout Europe and Japan. The rest, as they say, is history. Vibration enthusiasts became hooked on the benefits. They began to experience increased circulation, range of motion and flexibility.

They appreciated the improvements in muscle strength, core conditioning and stability; not to mention the faster muscle recovery following a workout. Gyms and centers devoted entirely to Whole Body Vibration came to dominate the psyche of the fitness conscious public.

Medvibe NitroFit Personal Whole Body Vibration Platform

The Medvibe NitroFit Personal Whole Body Vibration Platform features 5 built-in workout programs and a blue LED control panel to track your pulse and body fat as you exercise. $999.00 with a $50 mail-in rebate!

Whole Body Vibration allows the user to take on less physical load when compared to weight lifting, yet achieve similar results in less time. During the workout, muscle tissues contract and relax thousands of times per second, providing unmatched fat burning efficiency. Risk of injury during the workout period is greatly reduced. Weight loss, muscle strength and tone increases during WBV due to the extreme stimulus your muscles must respond to each second.

Multiple reports and independent tests confirm that athletic performance increases when whole body vibration is used in conjunction with training exercises. Manufacturers say WBV is an excellent way for those who have health restrictions that keep them from exercising, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and some forms of Arthritis, to tone muscle and condition.

Uniband Resistance Bands for Enhanced Weight Lifting

ActiveForever-logo

The Uniband Latex Free Resistance Bands from ActiveForever are excellent mobility/rehabilitation tools which can be used to enhance weight lifting and training exercises as well. Unibands are the only resistance bands made to withstand pool chemicals. They make a great and fun addition to any water aerobics session!

Unlike traditional weight training, in which the rate of exertion is lighter with the finishing motion, with Unibands, the resistance of the bands increases as they are stretched. Color-coded Unibands offer five different levels of resistance, from very light to very heavy.

Uniband Latex Free Resistance Bands

Uniband Latex Free Resistance Bands come with accessories to improve and enhance your strength training regimen! $75.99

The Uniband forces your muscles to speed up at the end of an exertion in order to overcome the resistance of the bands at the top of the movement. In this way muscles are really pushed to their capacity at a much greater rate than with regular weights. At the moment when traditional weights are lightening their load, the Unibands are really making those muscles work.This allows you to develop strength, tone and agility in all major muscle groups, as well as the minor groups that are normally neglected. When working out with resistance bands, the entire dynamic of the exercise is changed and enhanced.

Health Mark for Prevention of Heart Disease and Heart Attacks

After years of aggressive marketing efforts on behalf of womens’ health advocates and organizations, the long-held misconception of heart disease as being a predominantly male issue is beginning to fade.

The widely understood concept of an actual heart attack and the process in which it manifests is perhaps still a little behind the times however.

When you think of the term, heart attack, or cardiac arrest, what sort of image pops into your head? It’s most likely a man, experiencing a sudden onslaught of pain that takes over his whole body in a moment. His face registers agony as he clutches his chest and is no longer able to stand. A horrific occurrence which no one should have to endure for sure, but it is not the whole story.

For women, the process is infinitely more subtle and therefore harder to detect. Whereas men experience extreme tightening of the chest, for women it has been described as more of a discomfort. This is followed by flu-like symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, dizziness, difficulty breathing and even insomnia.

Health-Mark-Port-a-Vibe

The Health Mark Port-A-Vibe is the only ‘Whole Body Vibration’ machine built to accommodate a space conscious or fluid lifestyle. $259.00

What it boils down to is this:

Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the United States today. It is a deadly and widespread disease with common, nondescript symptoms that are easily and very often ignored.

By the time a woman seeks treatment it is often too late.

Consider the times (like these,) when the flu virus is rampant. It’s no surprise that heart disease in so many women goes undetected.

Health Mark carries a line of affordable cardio machines for prevention such as the Port-a-Vibe Whole Body Vibration Machine.

Their extensive line of products also includes some really smart devices such as this Body Tone Heart Rate Monitor.

Health Mark Heart Rate Monitor

The Health Mark Heart Rate Monitor allows you to keep track of your heart rate so it stays in the right zone for optimal health and fitness. $64.55

Customizable preset functioning allows for individualized and thus more accurate readings.

No matter how it’s done, it’s crucial to know the symptoms and the signs of heart disease and to be pro-active about your health and the health of those around you.

Top 5 Symptoms of Heart Disease in Women


1. Fatigue

2. Shortness of Breath

3. Indigestion, Upper Abdominal Pain or Nausea

4. Jaw or Throat Pain

5. Arm Pain (Especially the left arm)

It’s National Wear Red Day! Not because it’s such a beautiful color, but rather because it’s a way to show support for the women who are taking action to protect their hearts and by extension, their lives!

They do this by reducing high blood pressure and cholesterol. They maintain a healthy weight by getting regular exercise and they do not smoke. All of these actions taken together go a long way toward decreasing the risk of developing heart disease.

Are you at risk of developing heart disease? The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute helps you find out.

Together we are powerful. Let's unite and get to the heart of good health.

When it Comes to Weight Loss, Consider the Timing–Not Just the Content–of Your Diet

So you’re doing everything right. You’ve done the impossible and stayed true to your New Year’s resolutions.

You figured out ways to soldier on with regularly scheduled sweat sessions despite a recent weather pattern that screams at you to surrender to the security of your most comfortable blanket.

You stick to your diet and remain ever mindful of what you eat; but somehow the weight loss just isn’t going as planned.

According to a new study published today in the International Journal of Obesity, when it comes to losing weight, the time you eat can have as much of an effect as what you eat. (Original article appears here.)

***

“We should start to consider meal timing in addition to calories and meal composition when thinking about weight loss.”

-Frank Scheer, senior author of the study, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and an associate neuroscientist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

It’s definitely food for thought, and a welcome bit of news as far as we’re concerned. Who wants to put off that long-awaited lunch break anyway? After all, doing so is bad for your health!

Rain Soaking your Outdoor Exercises? Have a Ball Instead!

Sure this near-constant cover of rain and drizzle for the past few days is outstanding for the drought-ridden desert ecosystem that is Phoenix, but it’s murder for an exercise routine that includes running, walking or biking outdoors. Even heading to the gym can be a chore if walking through the parking lot gets you drenched to the core.

Speaking of core… Exercise Balls are an extremely effective way to target core muscles while working out indoors. They are available in different sizes, making them so versatile they can supply a fun, full-body work-out all on their own, or with a set of hand-weights. Too busy to work out? An exercise ball can even provide a work-out while just sitting at your desk.

The Health Mark Swiss Chair Ball is one of the best all-around fitness tools for core strength training as well as rehabilitation. Training with an exercise ball helps to fine tune coordination and increase muscle tone. With just this simple tool, users can enjoy all the benefits of low-impact workouts without the need for gym memberships or costly training sessions. Exercise balls don’t require a lot of room, are easy to store and maintain and are perfect for when inclement weather discourages venturing out of doors.

Health Mark Swiss Chair Ball

The Health Mark Swiss Chair Ball is a key fixture in the home of fitness-minded individuals. Even as a chair it provides a quality core work-out. $83.30

Resolution and Weight/Weight Loss Revelations

aflogo-96x96Let’s face it. These days, weight loss tops the list of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions. Of course many also hope to get a new job, better education, etc., However it seems that all but the conviction to shed a problematic fat suit is engulfed in the wake of the post-holiday surrender to reality.

Not that we are lazy or that we give up easily, it’s just that continuing on with the same job or level of education does not increase our risk of diabetes, heart attack, stroke, along with a whole host of serious health issues that are part of and parcel of being—and staying— overweight. (In other words, your physician will not peer at you from behind a furrowed brow of concern in response to your modest salary.)

Many of us view the debut of a new year as a solid, tangible break from the past that translates into a “break” from our old, unhealthy habits. It’s a whole new paradigm; another chance.

As we should. Depending on your disposition, you can either view the American obesity epidemic as discouraging or an opportunity for growth; *not* in the physical sense of course.

Percentages of Overweight Americans Ages 20+


  • More than two-thirds (68.8 percent) of adults are considered to be overweight or obese.
  • More than one-third (35.7 percent) of adults are considered to be obese.
  • More than 1 in 20 (6.3 percent) have extreme obesity.
  • Almost 3 in 4 men (74 percent) are considered to be overweight or obese.
  • The prevalence of obesity is similar for both men and women (about 36 percent).
  • About 8 percent of women are considered to have extreme obesity.

Source: Weight-control Information Network

Yesterday we wrote about some healthy weight findings that we found to be a little unorthodox: A recent study claims that those who carry a few extra pounds around have a lower risk of premature death than that of their healthy weight counterparts. The article does not address obesity however. A person is obese when their BMI (body mass index) is 30 percent or above.

This is a different story. An article in USA Today “weighs” in on the topic with the help of a few reputable physicians. The piece is a fitting follow-up to yesterday’s post. Plus it includes links to diet and exercise tips and information on how to lose weight by forming healthier habits.

Need help sticking to your resolutions? We do too!
