Have you heard of the term Active Couch Potato?

It's real, and not something you want to be.

The name reminds me of being called half-wit, which a nasty substitute teacher once called me for talking too much in her class. Can you imagine? I am still pissed about her comment.

Q: What exactly is an Active Couch Potato?

A: A adult person who meets the public health requirements for being physically active^ and also who is sedentary for most of the day.  (reference Australian Diabetes Obesity and Lifestyle 2008)

^ 30" of physical activity most days of the week

You can have perfect attendance and participation in your program of choice but if you remain sedentary for most of the day you are negating your efforts in the gym.  Yikes!

As a coach, for midlife women, it is my responsibility to make sure people who trust me to train them are active throughout the days and hours beyond our sessions.  And this includes cardio. Modern convenience has made us far too sedentary for our own good.

Thank you for tuning and remember to check back every Tuesday for a new episode.
