IMG_8165-Edit-2Picture this: on Day One of your new workout regimen, you wake up at 5am, sprinting out of bed. You’re not even interested in coffee or a bagel. All you want to do is throw on your sweats, bound outside and run. Not a mile, or two, but ten miles, at full speed, uphill, cross-country, downhill, working up an incredible sweat, stopping only to do some calisthenics, burning mad calories, and – as you leap the several hurdles in your path – getting every muscle in your body ready for another incredible day. Imagine you proceeded to do exactly this, each and every morning, combined with a truly healthy diet. You’d be in pretty wonderful shape.

Now, try to imagine that you’re a REAL person. A real person might have that same vision, and might even be able to make a valiant go of it on the first day. But on Day Two…that person would likely spend more time recovering than sprinting. The ZAAZ 20K and ZAAZ 15K were designed not for the sprinter but with the “long distance runner” in mind. Whether used by professional athletes, or patients dealing with a range of health issues (or seeking low impact, low injury exercise), ZAAZ machines serve the person who wants to transition into a healthy lifestyle by embracing a healthy vibe as opposed to a drastic change.

There’s a great article on the FitnessForProfessionals website that breaks down the components of a healthy lifestyle. It’s worth a read, especially if you put a premium no that second syllable. Lifestyle – the blueprint for how you function on a day-to-day basis – is like any other plan. It has to be practical and doable; that means it should be incremental. The 7 components covered in the article are:

  1. Nutrition
  2. Exercise
  3. Sleep
  4. Stress Management
  5. Sun Exposure
  6. Social Contact
  7. Have Fun

As you embark on a “vibe healthy” lifestyle, seeking a road to regular, effective exercise and relief of stress for the mind and body, the ZAAZ 20K and ZAAZ 10K machines are a great place to start.
