Hello from Legendary Fitness!

        …transforming your goals into legendary results.


While glancing at a USA Today newspaper this week, we took notice of the announcement that 53-year-old baby boomer, Kirstie Alley will be starring in a proposed new TV series for Showtime Networks, Inc.  If you’ve been to a supermarket within the past six months, we’re sure that you’ve had the opportunity to view the numerous unflattering photos of Kirstie since she’s put on a significant amount of weight. The new TV series is an adult comedy that deals with Hollywood’s obsession with weight and beauty.  However, after viewing the photos of a very large Kirstie Alley, can we truly state that all weight and beauty obsessions are bad?

Baby Boomer Quick Tips and Facts

Want to improve the results of preventive medicine?  A nationwide study at the University of Washington School of Medicine reports that adults who regularly visit the same doctor or the same clinic are more likely to get better preventive medical care. 43,000 adults participated in the nationwide telephone survey that revealed when continuity of medical care is in place, higher levels of preventive medicine are observed by the patients.

What do doctors recommend for stress management?  Yoga is the primary therapy recommended by doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.  Yoga encourages the release of unnecessary tension in the body.  While yoga can be learned from videos, books and magazines, personal instruction produces a better initial experience.  As a result, participants are more likely to stick with the practice of yoga.

Growing numbers of Americans are getting massages each year. The number of Americans that get at least one massage per year increased from 8% in 1997 to the current rate of 21%.   Baby boomers are the fastest growing demographic group seeking out massage therapists.  To learn more about the types of massages and cautionary warnings, check out the AARP website.



E-records for health care are expected within the next 10 years.  The US government is encouraging the use of technology to modernize health care through possible grants or low-interest loans to those in the medical profession.  Expected savings to the nations’ health care bill will cut the $1.6 trillion dollar per year health care bill by 10% once electronic medical records are utilized.
