Denise Austin's New Years Resolution For 2014


Celebrity resolutions: revealed and graded

December 29, 2013 at 12:00 am

These 10 local celebrities are either liars, or outliers. When we asked them for their New Year’s resolutions, not one said “Lose weight” — by far the most common goal among regular Americans. “Losing 10 pounds is so pedestrian,” says journalist Cokie Roberts. “And not only that, but, you know, some of us have reached the age where we know we aren’t going to do it.”

That said, the rich and famous are probably as likely to slip up as regular folks, says Todd Kashdan, a psychology professor and motivation expert at George Mason University. “The vast majority fall off the wagon,” he says. Only 19 percent of people who make resolutions manage to keep them for two years, according to one study. We asked Kashdan to assess our celebrities’ resolutions and provide some tips to help their — and by extension, our — vows stick.

Denise Austin

TV personality and fitness guru
“Mine is all about having more fun in the New Year. Every Sunday, I call my girlfriends to see what they are doing for fitness, and I make plans to join them, so I keep up with my friends and staying fit.”
Shrink says: “This is the model of how you create New Year’s resolutions.”

Radio personality Neil Haley recently interviewed Celebrity Fitness Expert Denise Austin and 90-Day Health Expert Entrepreneur GJ Reynolds on the SimplyG Media Network's Beachlifestyle Radio Show, to talk about the positive impact of exercising.

"They really educated me about the importance of working out," says Haley, radio host on the Total Education and Beachlifes tyle shows "G and Denise both work out every day and are dedicated to educate others to do the same."

GJ Reynolds, whose mission is to inspire people to reclaim their personal power, sees great importance in having a trainer or workout partner when he works out. "You need to have someone who will help hold you accountable, so you can reach fitness goals."

"I enjoy being with my girlfriends while I workout," says Austin, who likes working out with her friends because she says it's more fun than working out alone. "They hold me accountable but also I can have fun while I workout."

While Austin and Reynolds are in their 50s, they have found a way to have the same energy as most people in their 20s. They choose to use their success to inspire others to get in shape and help end obesity.

PHIT America introduces female celebrity athlete ambassadors


Golf News for Monday, October 28, 2013 | People

SILVER SPRING, Md. -- PHIT America - the non-profit education and advocacy organization designed to combat the nation's inactivity and obesity crisis - announces LPGA star Ryann O'Toole, USA Water Polo four-time Olympic medalist Heather Petri and USA Softball two-time Olympic gold medalist Michele Smith as celebrity ambassadors. The three join an all-star group of previously announced supporters, including fitness expert Denise Austin.

Rising from their shared passions for being active, each athlete lives in a manner that aligns with the PHIT America mantra of creating "A Movement for a Fit and Healthy America." Founded in January 2013, the organization focuses on overcoming the inactivity pandemic affecting 192 million people across the country.

One of the fittest women in golf, O'Toole is dedicated to a strict workout regimen and participates in a range of other sports, including surfing, whenever her schedule allows. She believes that consistent exercise is necessary to stay healthy while traveling to tournaments around the world.

"As a professional athlete, I've made a point to inspire others, not only through golf, but by exercising daily and sticking to a routine," says O'Toole. "The partnership with PHIT America is crucial in educating the almost 70 percent of the total population that is either obese or overweight."

In 2012, Petri capped a historic water polo career with a gold medal at the London Olympic Games. At "National Health Through Fitness Day" on Capitol Hill earlier this year, she spoke to Congressional leaders about the rise of sedentary lifestyles and resulting health issues.

Smith, a softball gold medalist at the 1996 and 2000 Olympics, is committed to engaging kids on and off the playing field. She shares her passion for the game and an athletic lifestyle with the next generation of girls through a variety of camps and clinics.

"The percentage of Americans who are completely sedentary has steadily increased over the past five years with inactivity remaining the prime contributor to escalating healthcare costs," says Jim Baugh, Founder of PHIT America, former President of Wilson Sporting Goods and a 2011 inductee into the Sporting Goods Industry Hall of Fame. "Celebrity athletes like Ryann, Heather and Michele are all helping to spread the message of PHIT America."

PHIT America supports two pieces of legislation crucial to increasing the number of healthy Americans. When passed, the Personal Health Investment Today Act (PHIT) will allow people to use pre-tax medical accounts for physical activity expenses. The Physical Education Program (PEP) is a 12-year Federal grant from the Department of Education for schools to rebuild health and fitness programs.

Since its January 2013 launch, more than 130 leading companies and associations from the sports, fitness, retail and media industries have contributed funds and services to support PHIT America.

Americans are encouraged to support PHIT America by visiting www.PHITAmerica.org to advocate, provide a donation or participate in health and wellness programs.

About PHIT America
Founded in January 2013, PHIT America is a non-profit educational, social media, and advocacy campaign focused on overcoming the inactivity pandemic and obesity crisis in America by creating a "Movement for a Fit & Healthy America." Over 130 companies along with sports ambassadors and celebrities are helping PHIT America to get more Americans more active, fit and healthier.

A few of the major PHIT America initiatives include passing key legislation. The Personal Health Investment Today Act (PHIT) will allow Americans will be able to use pre-tax medical accounts for physical activity expenses. The Physical Education Program (PEP) is a 12-year program supporting increased activity in local physical education programs throughout America. Both the PHIT Act and PEP Program will help mitigate rising healthcare costs by encouraging Americans to develop more active, healthy lifestyles.

PHIT America also just launched the Mayor's Fitness Challenge, a new, fun 10-week campaign in local cities around the U.S. designed to encourage active lifestyles through group exercise sessions, educational programs and community engagement.

Denise Austin’s 5 Easy Tips for Working Out Inside



By Denise Austin, FOX News Magazine Contributor, October 22, 2013

Fall is a wonderful time of year! Sometimes, though, it’s just a bit too chilly to exercise outdoors and you have to begin moving your workouts inside. You’ll definitely save time by exercising in your living room, but you’ll also need to get a little creative to keep your workouts challenging and fun. Here are a few tips and tricks for creating effective at-home workouts:

Invest in low-cost workout equipment.

The first step to working out in the comfort of your home is to purchase a few key pieces of equipment. Don’t worry, I’m not talking about buying a treadmill or an elliptical machine. I suggest you start to build a home gym with three key items first, and add on from there if you feel like you need more variety. First, I would purchase a set of dumbbells, either two or three pounds. A lot of my exercises include dumbbells because they’re one of the best tools out there when it comes to strengthening your arms.

Next, I would invest in one of my favorite cardio tools — a jump rope! Anyone can jump rope and it’s the perfect exercise to get your heart rate up before moving on to a strengthening exercise. Finally, I think a balance ball will help you round out your home gym.  Balance balls are great for abdominal and leg exercises. Plus, if you sit on it while you watch TV or work on your computer, you’ll improve your posture and tone your abs. Can’t beat it!

Stock up on fun DVDs!

Take a walk to the library or video store and browse the workout section. So many types of workout videos are available — from kickboxing, dance and Pilates to step aerobics, Tae Bo and boot camp — the possibilities are endless! And best of all, you can try these new routines in the comfort of your home, return them, and borrow new ones so you can constantly vary your workouts. If you’re more of a walker, replace your outdoor jaunts with my latest DVD, "Fat Burning Walk," which is available at Walmart stores now. It’s definitely a good one for those rainy, cold fall days! It’s a complete walking workout with over 4,200 steps that can all be done in front of the TV.

Turn idle time into toning time.

You can tone the 640 muscles of the body anytime, anywhere. Research has shown that small bursts of exercise throughout the day can increase your calorie burn up to 500 calories or more per day! Here are a few exercises you can try while dinner is cooking or while you're chatting on the phone:
  • Counter Top Push-Aways — Place your hands on the counter a little wider than shoulder-widt, and step a few feet away with your legs. Bend your elbows, bringing your chest to the countertop, then push back up.
  • Couch Dips (similar to my Triceps Chair Dip) — Sit at the edge of the couch and place your palms on either side of your body. Move forward so your body is off of the couch, bend your elbows behind you as you lower your body to the floor, then extend your arms to return to the start.
  • Leg and Butt Lift — While standing at the sink washing dishes, lift your leg behind you and pulse it up and down, then switch legs and repeat.

Put on your dancing shoes.

Want to switch up your workout one day? Turn on your favorite high-energy music and start dancing! Nothing beats a fun dance workout, so shake, twist and kick your body slim, all while dancing to your favorite tunes. The key to an informal dance workout is to keep your heart rate up! Make sure you’re challenging yourself and moving around as much as possible — incorporate the stairs and try to cover your whole house or apartment complex. Use my Heart Health Pedometer to see how many steps you can take in one dance workout, then try to top it the next time!

Cleaning can be a workout!

Housework, like vacuuming, sweeping, lifting boxes and more, can be an effective calorie burner! Depending on what you’re doing, you can burn up to 400 calories an hour by accomplishing these household chores that need to be taken care of anyway. This is a great way to cross something off of your to-do list while also getting a workout in — inside! Set aside time once a week to tackle a project in your home — work hard until you finish — then you’re done with your workout for the day.

Denise Austin to Sun City folks: ‘You can do it!’

Denise Austin to Sun City folks: ‘You can do it!’


By Stephanie Marks Martell
- Special to the Fort Mill Times

INDIAN LAND -- Denise Austin visited Sun City Carolina Lakes Tuesday, offering residents fitness advice on healthy aging and conducting two outdoor fitness classes geared specifically toward seniors.

The appearance was the first stop on Rite Aid’s national tour promoting its new Wellness 65+ program, which offers free health screenings, pharmacist consultations and in-store discounts for senior customers. During the class, participants learned to use and were sent home with resistance bands and weights from Austin’s line of Forever Fit gear. Residents also had access to a health fair where they could chat individually with a pharmacist, get medication consultations, and have preventative screenings for blood pressure, diabetes risk and COPD.

Sun City resident Janis Yarde appreciated the experience and said seniors need to be more aware of how important being active is to their health

“I’m really into fitness,” she said. “What a special thing to have Denise Austin here. She’s such a great person.”

The retired physical education teacher from New Hampshire loves the opportunities to stay active in Sun City – tennis, pickle ball, swimming, golf, a full gym and classes for every kind of fitness.

“This is a place that offers so many options,” Yarde said. “There’s no excuse for anyone to live here and not participate in some physical activities.”

Deborah Groux was curious about the event and stopped by for the second workout session. She had subscribed to “Prevention” magazine and enjoyed reading Denise Austin’s articles there and she hoped to glean some nuggets of wisdom from the fitness icon.

“I’m open to the possibilities,” she said.

Austin, a former gymnast and the sister-in-law of Tracy Austin, who was a top professional tennis player in the 1970s, earned her degree in exercise physiology and now works in partnership with Rite Aid to promote healthy lifestyles. During the Tuesday classes, she recommended a “three-pronged” attack for seniors to keep fit: good cardio, good, eating, and good exercising.

“I only work out for 30 minutes, but I do it every day,” Austin said. “Keep it up. Fitness isn’t stored; only fat is. You are how you are by your own heritage about 40 percent, and the rest is up to you.”

Mixing it up is key, but the main thing is just to move more, she said.

“You can do this in the car, in your golf carts – anywhere,” Austin told the seniors during her first class.

“Think of your day as a course of 16 waking hours. Think about how active you can be in those 16 hours.”

PHIT America Founder Admits Denise Austin And Others First Celebrity Ambassadors


Interview with Jim Baugh, Founder of PHIT America

Written by: Staff on 5th September 2013


Introduction: Jim Baugh, a lifelong tennis industry professional, founded PHIT America in January 2013. He was inducted into Sporting Goods Industry Hall of Fame in 2011 and is the former President of Wilson Sporting Goods. Currently, he serves on the Board of Directors for the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) and GOLF 20/20 Executive Committee. He’s held similar roles with the Tennis Industry Association and United States Tennis Association.

Question (Q): What is PHIT America?

Answer (A): PHIT America is a non-profit education and advocacy organization designed to get America more active, fit and healthy to combat the nation’s inactivity and obesity crisis. The statistics are staggering – 68 percent of Americans are either obese or overweight. A sedentary lifestyle is the prime contributor to the escalating health care costs we all face. The World Health Organization estimates $1 spent on physical activity can save $3.20 on future medical expenses.

Q: Why did you decide to create PHIT America? With my experience in the sports industry, I realized there was a bigger mission. America needs our help! If we can get organizations working together, we can help influence activity levels in this country. It will reduce obesity and healthcare costs. PHIT America has more than 130 companies working together to promote active, fit, and healthy lifestyles.

Q: What is the primary goal of the organization?
 
A: Our main objective is to create “A Movement for a Fit and Healthy America” by educating men, women and children about the importance of an active lifestyle to improve overall health. Around 192 million Americans are not active to healthy standards and it’s our mission to get them headed in the right direction.
 
Q: What is being done in Washington, D.C. to inform Congressional leaders about the inactivity and obesity crisis?

A: PHIT America supports two pieces of legislation crucial to increasing the number of healthy Americans. When passed, the Personal Health Investment Today Act (PHIT) will allow people to use pre-tax medical accounts for physical activity expenses. The Physical Education Program (PEP) is an 11-year Federal grant from the Department of Education for schools to rebuild health and fitness programs.

Each March, the SFIA hosts “National Health Through Fitness Day” on Capitol Hill with approximately 150 industry executives, 20 celebrity athletes and 40 sponsors to help pass legislation to “Get America Moving.” Our next event will be held in March 2014, our 14th consecutive year. Americans can also help by going to PHITAmerica.org and clicking “Advocate” tab. It’s very simple to contact your Congressional leaders to show support.

Q: Are any tennis organizations supporting the cause?

A: Since our January 2013 launch, more than 130 leading companies and associations from the sports, fitness, retail and media industries have contributed funds and services to support PHIT America. There are close to 20 companies in tennis who are sponsors including Babolat, Midtown Athletic Clubs, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Finish Line, Head, Holabird Sports, Wilson, Prince, PTR Tennis, Tennis Channel, Midwest, Holabirds, Tennis Express and Tennis Warehouse, Tennis Industry Association, to name a few.

In addition, we have several celebrity athletes who adopt our vision to get Americans healthy through regular physical activity and exercise. For example, NFL great Hershel Walker, tennis legends Mike and Bob Bryan, fitness expert Denise Austin and Golf Channel instructor Michael Breed are a few of our first celebrity ambassadors.

Q: At the local level, are there any programs for people to get involved with and be active?

A: Yes, we recently announced the official launch of the Mayors Fitness Challenge (MFC), a fun 10-week health and wellness campaign designed to encourage community interaction through fitness and educational programs.

The program initiates weight loss and promotes active lifestyles through group fitness activities. This includes participation in complimentary or reduced-rate exercise classes and regular weigh-ins to track overall progress. The 110 individuals who finished the challenge in 2011 lost an average of 15.5 pounds and learned valuable lessons to maintain a dynamic routine.

MFC introduces participants to area gyms and sporting goods retailers while taking advantage of the city’s natural resources for outdoor activities such as boot camps. For more info, visit www.MayorsFitnessChallenge.org.

Q: What can Americans do to support PHIT America?

A: To learn more and support our mission, visit www.PHITAmerica.org to advocate, provide a donation or participate in health and wellness programs. Americans can also sign up to join the “Fan Club” and receive news updates, fitness tips and more.

About PHIT America

Founded in January 2013, PHIT America and its 130-plus sponsors are responding to the inactivity and obesity crisis by leading “A Movement for a Fit and Healthy America.” PHIT America promotes grass-roots fitness and sports initiatives, including development of high-quality physical education (PE) programs in schools. Recent Physical Activity Council research shows children in PE are three to four times more likely to be active outside of school.

PHIT America also supports two vital pieces of legislation, which will increase the number of fit and healthy Americans:

Personal Health Investment Today Act (PHIT) – When passed, Americans will be able to use pre-tax medical accounts for physical activity expenses.

Physical Education Program (PEP) – An 11-year program supports local physical education programs throughout America.
Both the PHIT Act and PEP Program will help mitigate rising health care costs by causing Americans to develop more active lifestyles.
