Common Gym Myths…

Common gym myths.
By: Mary Wanjiku Gichuhi
I am very keen on going to the gym, and the guy who was lifting besides me this morning looked like he should write the book on muscle. Talked like it, too. He’s worked out like forever, played football, and he’s big. But that doesn’t mean he knows what he was talking about. Starting now, I ignore him.

The gym is infested with bad information. Lies that start with well intentioned teachers trickle down to students who become coaches or know –it –all gym preachers. Some people are blessed with good genes and will look great no matter the type of training they get at the gym. Everyone is unique and so what works out for one person will not necessarily produce the same results in another. Determining what works for your body is half the battle of fitness so next time while listening to what the gym preacher has to say, make sure you analyze it and see how well it will apply to your own situation.

We are all looking at maximizing results while minimizing time and effort in the gym. Confusion may however keep many couch potatoes from getting into shape. Getting Kenyans off their cozy couches and into their feet could save lives yet most people are either sedentary or only minimally active.

Gym myths can lead to wasted time, frustration and if taken blindly as truths, they can really set back your progress in the gym. Ever seen the guy laying in the corner doing thousands of sit –ups in his quest for a six-pack? Relate to this few statements : Its only a good workout if you are sore the next day; Running on a treadmill is better for your joints than pavements; More hours spent in the gym leads to better results; wearing a lot of clothes while working out helps burn more fat; If you want to be strong, you need to get huge; if someone looks fit, they know what they are talking about; there are magic diets and pills ;supplements will do all the work and that gyms are only for young people.

The most interesting and best known myth is that when women lift weights, they’ll become stiff, bulky and inflexible. This is not true. Lifting weights has great benefits for women, from an increased metabolism ,to a smaller ,more feminine shape ,to maintaining bone density ,improve heart health, increase strength, control weight, improve on flexibility and balance and also makes a woman feel better and more confident.

With all the myths at your disposal, it is very important to keep motivated and stick to your program. Rather than becoming a victim of bad information, use critical thinking every chance you get. Ask yourself where all information and advice is coming from and what the credibility of its source is. If necessary, do your own research to find out just what truth the claim has. It may seem like a lot of work, but it will be well worth it in the end.

Keeping Fit Relationships..

Posted on January 2, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Keeping fit relationships.
By: Mary Wanjiku Gichuhi
Looking at a recent fitness program on a local media house on women trying to lose weight I wondered whether their relationships are equally fit as they would like to be. The question of whether fitness has anything to do with healthy relationships is worth pondering.
I believe that, “I am nothing without good health”. Good health streams from the health triangle: physical, mental and social well being. Not being fit in the three aspects can lead to unhealthy relationships. I believe that the passion of enjoying good relationships and marriages can only be ramped up by empowering oneself with the tools and motivation needed to get fit and stay healthy. Enhancing fitness levels directly improves the quality of both life and relationships.
Listening to radio talk shows couples have constantly complained of their overweight spouses which is straining their relationships. Some have even joked about the vows they made from until death do us part to until you gain 50 pounds whichever comes first. Attraction has been obviously the key to all healthy relationships.
Keeping fit has its benefits in relationships. Stress reduction, looking good, improved energy levels and reduced injuries are some of the physical benefits. Improved self confidence and improved self esteem are among the emotional benefits that fuel renewed passion in relationships and marriage as a whole.
Statistics reveal that apart from financial issues, most broken marriages are as a result of sexual dooms. Chances are, by the time most couples marry, they have had their better share of the best sex in their lives. The theory of diminishing returns states that “as consumption of the same product increases, the gratification-in this case- sexual fulfillment will not be as rewarding as in previous experiences.” This theory applies to sexual partners because as couples continue to have sex, the enjoyment level slowly starts to decrease. There is a remedy, with a committed effort in keeping fit and staying healthy, they can always make it better.
A little gyming, walking, jogging and outdoor cycling will not only better your sex life but also improve productivity to get work done more efficiently and free up more time for recreation. Feeling good by having a fit lifestyle will make you a better husband or wife. Those who live a fit lifestyle will agree with me that it is critical in clearing ones head to dealing with financial issues. Interesting but true is that patience with spouse and children is also enhanced.
Who wants to be branded a couch potato? Through experience, gyming at least four times a week keeps my body in shape giving it the activity it wants and was designed for. It also gives me my space and something else to do. Life is all about choices, choose to stay fit and healthy!

Why manners matter when it comes to fitness etiquette

Posted on January 2, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

By: Mary Wanjiku Gichuhi
We are living in an image -conscious society and more people are going to the gym to tone up and keep in shape. The gym is our way to stay fit, a venue to meet new people and a place I call “me time” that is hard to garner anywhere else. It is a public place and a plethora of things to different people.
However, you can agree with me that we all know how to mind our manners at job interviews and fancy dinners but there’s something about the casual atmosphere of the gym that sometimes makes us forget. The same rules of etiquette are not just for tea parties but they apply everywhere even at the sweaty gym.
In my recent gym sessions I have observed that seemingly common sense unspoken rules and formalities of our exercise havens are being not only ignored in gyms nationwide, but virtually assaulted. This is not an attack on any one person: it is the opinion of a concerned gym attendee who wishes to work out in a less irritating environment. Even if you feel like you’re in your own little world when exercising, keep in mind that others are trying to use that space too.
Every gym goers has mastered the rules : clean up after yourself by always bringing a towel with you and using it, if you take something out, put it away, learn to share by not hogging the equipment for yourself, practice patience by not rushing others and be on time by observing the time limits for every cardio machines.
On the contrary, personal protocol rules that affect those around you have long been forgotten. The gym would be a more pleasant place for everyone if personal rules of conduct were respected. You have already amped up your push –up but it’s time to perfect your form on skills that we have overlooked at our gyms .It is just not the new year and resolution crowd that lacks etiquette because they may just not know better but even the experienced gym chronicles .
Exercising to music is motivating and fun. However, blasting your MP3 player at maximum volume is not. Keeping your private life private by turning off your phone while at the gym gives you the concentration needed to endure and perform. What about letting the trainer do his job? Offering unsolicited advice and correcting other people without permission will only increase the number of casualties subjected to injuries.
Tank tops, profuse sweating and mild grunting are accepted in almost all health clubs. But am not sure if torn, dirty clothing are. Though exercising will make you sweat and that can cause body odor, its considerate to wear good antiperspirant instead of strong sprays that will cause headaches and migraines to people with sensitive scents. Lastly, thank you for not spitting or disposing your used chewing gum at the water fountain. We have all been the victims and the culprits of these offenses but its time to stop. Be clean, honest and efficient during your workout session: it will make for a better experience we all can enjoy!

Motivation From Billionaire Richard Branson…

Posted on August 23, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

My dear readers,I know its been a while since I updated this blog.I have always been saying that I have been busy working or making money.Thats not an excuse at all.The other day I saw Richard Branson the Virgin Billionaire on the newspapers and i decided to google him to read more about him.I was surprised to find out that Richard,though a billionaire with all that money and a very tight schedule all the time,he still finds time to write and update his blog,Richard Branson blog.You would think as rich as he is,he does not use his hands to write but after going through his blog,I found out that the English langauge he is using is simple and clear just as bloggers do write.
This has really motivated me to make a come back because since making that stupid excuse that I have been busy to update butdoisay,I have not made a quarter of Branson’s quid and am still struggling.
Thanks Branson for motivating me.

Cheers Clay Onyango.

Did Kenyans Learn Something From The Revolution In Libya?

Posted on August 23, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

First I would like to congratulate any Libyan on the planet for ousting President Moammar Gadaffi who has been the President for the last 42 years.I hope other African leaders will learn from Egypt, Libya and Tunisians revolution.Its sad that after living like Kings in palaces,they will now end up in bird nests and probably die like dogs or maybe live in cages like lions in a zoo.

Surprisingly,since the revolution six months ago,I hope you would agree with me ,that we did not see any human slaughtering with machetes,knives and swords even though Libya has about 150 different tribes.We did not see dead bodies lying on the streets of Tripoli as it was in Kenya 4 years ago.There was no looting and demolitioning of Libya’s infrastructure as it was in Kenya 4 years ago too.

So what made Libyans so humble people? and what made Kenyans so cruel people?

Please speak your mind.

Kidum Concert In Stockholm A Blast…

Posted on July 20, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The True East African artist Kidum was in Stockholm last weekend to entertain his Scandinavia fans here.For those who missed,they missed an African event of a lifetime,not just because it was organised by me but due to the contribution the fans gave and the way the artist himself,KIDUM,performed the whole night.

This was not a concert where an artist comes and plays a playback,but a whole band.The gittarist,the pianist,the drummer the singer,I mean the whole band.

The program started with a grill party in Tanto park,where Kidum was to mingle with his fans and sing one song while playing his guitar.In the beginning people thought it was a mere rumour to attract people,but this was not the case.

Calls were coming in all the time asking his whereabout.

Kidum arrived at Tanto park in style, he was seated in a silver Jaguar followed by a silver Audi Q5,just like a real star he is.He was booked at Radison blu hotel a five-star,just like a star he is,there was no time of putting him in cheap hotels like IBIS or accommodate him with Nick or Harry.This guy is a star and he needs to be treated like a star.

Pictures at the Grill party coming soon.The concert story to follow…

It’s amazing how are our Kids in Stockholm have grown so fast.I cannot imagine most of them are now graduating.This year 2011 Kenyan parents in Sweden have had many of their children graduating.I have attended many of these occasions but unfortunately,I couldn’t make it to some,but I just wish I could divide myself.I will mention a few that i knew of.I did attend Abdul and Rama Shabir,the sons to Steve a well-known Kenyan figure.Its amazing how these kids have been brought up,they are full of respect,ambitions and are definitely outgoing,they are pursuing to become flight engineers.With this profession, you have to be very good in mathematics and physics,these are the most fearful subjects of all.To hear these Kids going for this is, make me so proud of them.

-Then it was Teddy,Cathy Maundus son,another polite kid,full of respect,ambitions and obviously outgoing.He is pursuing to become a lawyer,another very good profession that needs many years of studying.This is one kid that would never pass you on the street,without rushing towards you to say hi.He is too full of respect and well mannered.Congrats Cathy for giving birth to this wonderful kid.Though born here,he can as well speak Swahili,just another plus!!!

-Then there was another Kenyan Stockholm pride by the name Grace.Though i don’t know her very well,am sure she is a plus and a plus.I missed her graduation ceremony,but all the best Grace and CONGRATULATIONS.

Another Kenyan Stockholm pride is Okoth Osewes daughter,Vivian, who is also graduating today.This is another kid full of respect and outgoing.Will do my best to attend her graduation tonight and find out what she is pursuing.We wish her all the best and Congratulations once again.
Another Kenyan Stockholm pride is milka’s son,Richie,he is also graduating today…all the best Richie and Congratulations.Keep up the respect!

Another Kenyan Stockholm pride happens to be my own daughter Sofia,she just graduated yesterday and I managed to travel all the way to attend her graduation ceremony in Lulea,north of Sweden.This is also one kid that has all the qualities of life.Just before her 19th birthday,she had already acquired a drivers licence.I was surprised to read on Lulea newspapers how she is one of the Swedish talented basket ballers.In one of the magazines,they praised her by saying how they were so proud of her,since she helped lulea basketball team thwart a Norwegian team,with 17 points.

-She is also competing in Horse ridding in Sweden, and just before her 19th birthday she has secured herself a job.How proud can i be as her father,she has really motivated my other kids and I hope they are following her footsteps.I didn´t know what to offer her as a present,but I surprised her with a car….she deserved it.All in all Congratulations to all these kids parents and of course myself.Kenya Stockholm parents Keep up the good work of raising your kidos!!!

Lisa Muraya An Upcoming Kenyan Gospel Celebrity…VOTE NOW!!!

Posted on June 2, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Anthony Muraya den 1 juni 07:13
Hey–

My wife, Lisah, is one of the nominees for the Africa Gospel Music Awards- an event held annually in London, now in it’s second year, whose purpose is to recognize and to celebrate the work of the gospel sector, and to showcase the talent, innovation and success of African gospel artistes.

Lisah is in the “best song” – Alitenda- and “best artiste/s (Europe)” categories. To vote for her, please visit; http://www.facebook.com/l/85ff3AyuknbxBvCdo22xbVZy87g/
http://www.africagospelmusicawards.com and follow instructions under the link “vote”.

I like the song “Alitenda” not just because Lisah sang it but also because it reminds me of God’s faithfulness any time I’m challenged by a need. It reminds me that because He did it in the past– to me or to someone else whose testimony I’ve heard– He will do it even now that I need a miracle.
It gives me hope to know that because alitenda, atatenda again.

I therefore ask you to take 2 minutes and visit http://www.facebook.com/l/85ff3AyuknbxBvCdo22xbVZy87g/www.africagospelmusicawards.com and vote for Lisah Muraya in the “best song” and “best artiste/s Europe” categories.

You can also listen to the song on YouTube by searching Lisah Muraya- alitenda, if you haven’t gotten a copy of the cd yet.

Thanks and may God bless you.
Anthony.

Majority Think Its Sweeter In The Bedroom And Not The Kitchen….

Posted on May 9, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

They say its sweeter on the sofa ,and some say its sweeter in the Bathroom,some in the car,while some under the tree,many in Africa say its sweeter when you do it in the bush.There are many ways you can do it,standing,sitting,bending but the best of all is kneeling down while facing the moon.

I mean the prayer,you sick minded people…..lol

Osama Is Gone But Has Left Michell Obama And The World Stuttering..

Posted on May 8, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The Osama story is still occupying the media world,you press Sky news,CNN,BBC,ALJAZEERA,KBC and many others,the news is just Osama.He is a gone case now but has left the world stuttering.The only person who is not stuttering is President Obama himself.

The first day the breaking news announced that he OSAMA was killed,the news caster himself was heard stuttering.Stuttering in a manner that instead of saying OSAMA has been captured, he stuttered and said Obama and suddenly rectified to OSAMA.Many people are incidentally saying OBAMA too and then rectifys to Osama.This story is too sweet that its spoken by everyone at least every second.

I mentioned the first lady Michell Obama too,because i assume Osamas name has been on their dinner table everyday for the last 8 months,that she sometimes confuses to call the husband’s name and calls him “OSAMA”, and then she goes like, Oh sorry “Obama!!!”

Imagine Michell Obama going like this,”OSAMA DINNER IS SERVED”,or OSAMA AM GOING TO SLEEP….these too names are too alike that we wont stop stuttering.Are you also stuttering? Please let us know….

Is Lady X Mentally Sick And Needs Our Help?

Posted on May 6, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

There is a Kenyan lady, namely lady x,who might be mentally sick and needs our support.The lady has been moving around Stockholm begging for money from passersby.I have personally bumped into her 3 times and all she does is begging money.I think her problem is mental and she needs help.

Can any close relative or friend arrange for a meeting where we can discuss how to help her if she is not getting any help from somewhere else.She is a mother with a son and according to some sources,she was evicted out of her house some years back.

Last week, the owner of a garage that repairs my car asked me if i knew a Kenyan by the name Lady x who is begging around.

He asked me to ask her to stop doing that because it’s a bad habit,i guess he does not know she is mentally sick.Do you know lady X,please advice how we can support her,whether financially or physically.

2011 African Challenge Cup In Sweden Is On The Making..

Posted on May 5, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Please, send this to the various responsible leaders of the various categories of your team.

Junior/Girls 15-19
Junior/Boys 15-19
Senior/Boys 20 and above

Now, time has come for the second Edition of the African Challenge Cup.

The first weekend of July is the date of the launch of the SAAS African Challenge Cup, a tournament which focuses on player’s development.

We believe in Swedish style of football in which young and talented players are given the opportunity to shine.

For this reason, we made an innovation this time by adopting an approach which mixes class and categories, unlike last year when we had categories alone.

Boys and girls who are 15-19 years old belong to the same category and are welcome to form a team. The same case applies to boys who are 20 and above.

In categories 15-19 and 20+, dispensation will automatically be given to two players per team who are one year over-aged at the maximum. Girls may play in boy’s teams in category 15-19.

This approach will allow us to identify organizations or teams which are seriously committed to Youth development while the process will also allow us to identify the stars of tomorrow.

To encourage all participants, the three winning teams in each category will share a prize while the winning team in each category will receive the prestigious trophy of the SAAS African Challenge Cup.

Do not wait!

Note: We believe in the principle of “first come first serve” and therefore, we request interested participants to register their teams as soon as possible to be certain of entry into the tournament. This year, participation will be limited to 24 teams.

We will also allow an Association to have two teams in the same category if there will be room.

Register your team today!

Best regards.

The Ritz Society Is Doing A Great Job.

Posted on May 3, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Last month the Ritz society organised an African Got talent in Sweden on Silja line cruise to Finland that was a success, but maybe, a bit messed up by the Silja line host.Unlike the other event Miss Africa Scandinavia they organised last year,the turn up was not so good as the later.

In business sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t this should not stop them from trying .All the same keep up the good work!!!

Now i take you to some African behaviours that might mess this organisers that are trying really hard to put Africans together:

Firstly,our African audience,please lets learn to respect any event organised by our fellow Africans.I saw some brothers trying to get into events without paying which led to some skirmishes at the events gate.This is quite embarrassing,the Ritz dedicates its time and money to organise these events and its a shame to feel superior and create havoc.

Secondly,our African audience,if you don’t have cash to buy food on board this cruise, stay at home.You are humiliating the entire Ritz and of course your brothers and sisters.
Why do you have to take a used plate with some food remains and eat it or wipe it and then go for an ad on?

You don’t even know the person who used this plate,he might have had tuberculosis or any other disease.SHAME ON YOU!!

Thirdly,why were there many complaints that drinks were missing from the tables.You buy a drink from the bar,you sip it twice,you rush to the dancing floor and when you come back,your table is empty and some Bros are too full???Do i need to answer really?? Shame shame!!!

Clay Onyango.
