To Help Keep New Years' Resolutions on Track, Spinning® Master Instructor Luciana Marcial-Vincion Provides Ten Easy Tips to Keep Moving

VENICE, Calif., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently, Spinning®, the creator of the indoor cycling category, conducted a two-tiered survey that polled the Spinning® community to determine top New Year's fitness goals and how people plan to reach those goals.

The survey, which reached approximately 1,000 community members, asked what New Year's fitness goals were most important; 47 percent of the respondents said that they want to lose weight, 26 percent want to tone, 20 percent want to improve flexibility, and the remaining 7 percent are split between building stamina and specific time achievements.

Additionally, when the audience was asked how they were going to meet these goals, joining a gym and tracking diet and exercise were tied at 27 percent each, 18 percent plan on hiring a personal trainer, 12 percent plan to utilize a fitness app, and the remaining 16 percent plan to sign-up for a series of classes or increase exercise at home.

According to a recent article by Forbes, "Just Eight Percent of People Achieve Their New Years Resolutions," which means that of the 1,000 Spinning® community members polled, only 80 will actually meet their goals. To help meet health and fitness resolutions, Spinning Master Instructor Team Manager Luciana Marcial-Vincion, suggests the following ten tips:

  1. Don't Sweat Your New Year's Resolutions: Focusing solely on calorie burn for your workouts is too small – think big! Reach for your dreams, increase energy, build fortitude as caloric expenditure is a default side effect of any exercise you do. It's going to happen no matter what, so fill your mind with majestic adventures and the body will follow.
  2. Showing up is Half the Battle: Goethe tells us that the moment you commit, providence moves in your favor. Once you're out the door, the rest falls into place. Just go, be on time, and you can already start praising yourself.
  3. Liquid Heaven: H20 is nature's miracle for health and performance. Ditch the soda and limit juices. Make drinking water a habit so it's less about a response to thirst and more about proactively cleaning the engine.
  4. Fuel: The earth is flat. Eat 3 meals a day. Yup – both ideas came from the same book. Eating smaller, healthier meals throughout the day keeps you from binging and helps increase your metabolism; it will also make for a better workout.
  5. We All Fall Off The Bike: Whether it's holiday or vacation related, we all falter. But remember, the failure is not in the falling down, it's in the staying down. Get up. Begin again, as many times as it takes.
  6. Try Something New: They say to do one thing a day that scares you. Think outside the box with a beginner's mind. Be judgment free and willing to get uncomfortable. Remember, it's got to challenge you to change you.
  7. Focus On The Present: The experience you are having right now is directly linked to your personal evolution.  Flow with what's happening and don't compare yourself to anyone else, your body is unique!
  8. Make it Your Ride: At least twice a week, it is important to partake in aerobic exercise. Spinning® is a great way to get your body and heart moving and you are ultimately the captain of your own ship – make adjustments that suit your fitness level.
  9. Your Body Was Made To Move: Take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk where you can, and throw down pushups the next time you are in the mall. Seriously. You might be surprised who'll join in. I call it Spontaneous Fitness Flash Mob.
  10. Be Prepared: Keep a set of workout clothes at the office, in the car, wherever, to help alleviate excuses and conquer a stressful day. Or if you can't make it to the gym keep workout equipment around the house like Bodyblade,® or Resist-A-Ball® and CrossCore®.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We focus on composable infrastructure. Composable infrastructure has been named by companies like Gartner as the evolution of the IT infrastructure where everything is now driven by software," explained Bruno Andrade, CEO and Founder of HTBase, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
