    TIME TO CHANGE It's unusual to read about change in your life in the middle of the year. Most people set out at the start of each year with new resolutions and desperately try to kick bad habits and form good ones. For many it might just be getting back into the gym, whilst for some it might be to quit smoking or focus on their nutrition. The truth is that you don't have to wait for a new year or a Monday to start a new fitness or health venture. It all starts with you making a decision to change. I am receiving more and more inspirational stories from readers who have given up feeling hopeless and have started to make a change. If I look a little closer to home, even my mother started a new fitness routine. And the feedback I am getting from everyone is that they are feeling and looking great! “I'd rather say I'm glad I did than I wish I had”... this is a quote to live by!

We have included a big feature on everything you need to focus on to perform better in any sporting field.

    WIN winning letter win with... your letters We want to hear from you! What do you want from fitness magazine? Let us know and you could win a supplement hamper from Muscle Science Postnet suite 99, Private Bag X8, North Riding 2162. Fax 0866604761 or email us at info@fitnessmag.co.za. The winner will receive a Lean Body hamper, courtesy of Muscle Science. Hi everyone at fitness mag, First and foremost I'd like to thank everyone for an awesome magazine. I've been reading your mag since it launched and I've never skipped an issue! I would however like to offer one piece of constructive criticism; I noticed towards the end of last year, and the two recent issues that you guys have been making a greater effort to include more info on beauty products. I must say that from my side I skip over all those articles, as I feel that I buy your magazine to get info that educates me on exercise and nutrition. I use your magazine as my 'little book of inspiration' to keep me working hard! Please don't let your magazine turn into one of 'those other' magazines, which I stopped buying years ago. It is pointless to try to sell us all sorts of products, like anti-aging and wrinkle free creams in each issue because all of us fitness girls know that the best thing we can do for our health is to eat right, keep active and drink lots of water. I have always considered your magazine to be quality over quantity, as every single issue and article adds value, so please keep up the great work! Monique via info@fitnessmag.co.za Hi there Monique, Thanks so much for your comments. Depending on your age, level of conditioning, and your fitness goals, you should train in a particular heartrate zone. Beginners should try to elevate their heart rate to 50%-60% of their maximum while intermediates and advanced should shoot for 70%- 85% of their max. To figure your maximum heart rate, simply subtract It's a tough letter to answer because we have had loads of responses from ladies who really enjoy the beauty section. When it comes to looking for value in a magazine I am right there with you. I also stopped buying tons of magazines a while back because they all lacked informative articles and inspiration. And we certainly don't want that for fitness! fitness is a female fitness lifestyle magazine and active ladies still place importance on skincare and other beauty products. That is why we have decided to include that into our editorial. It's not a large section by any means, just enough to keep the girls informed of what's new on the shelf. The current trend is that glossy beauty magazines are dropping in readership as more and more ladies seem to be purchasing magazines that are more relevant to them, which is exactly what fitness magazine is… relevant! So don't fear, fitness is still focussed on "fitness" and we'll never lose sight of what we are and the message that we want to convey. Regards, Tanja Health & Fitness Tip... Editor, Tanja your age from 220. For example, if you're 30 years old, you would have a maximum heart rate of 190. To work at 70% of your maximum heart rate, you would shoot for a heart rate of approximately 133 beats per minute (0.7 x 190). You can also count bpm (beats per minute) in 10-second increments and then multiply by six.

    Research data proves link between chocolate and migraine Research data from experiments using chocolate bars and bars of carob as a placebo has shown that chocolate does indeed cause migraines in certain unfortunate patients. The London based study was conducted on a sample group of 20 migraine sufferers. According to Dr Elliot Shevel, peer-reviewer for the European Journal of Neurology, “This is the first statistically conclusive study of its kind testing chocolate as a cause of migraines. The chocolate bars caused migraines in 41% of the subjects, while the carob bars did not induce migraine in a single sufferer.” The double- blind placebo controlled study was published in Cephalagia, the world’s most respected peer reviewed headache and migraine medical journal. “If your partner is a migraine sufferer, carob bars available from your local health store may well increase your chances this Valentine’s Day” concluded Dr Shevel. For further details on the study please contact Mary-lee Cantor on : +27 11 484 0933 A new home for Institute of Fitness Professionals The Institute of Fitness Professionals has relocated to the Pentamedical Building in the Design Quarter (Fourways).
