Exercise 5-6 Days a Week for the Rest of Your Life
Working exercise into your life to achieve weight loss and improve health is something most people can agree on.

African mango extract has blown up in the last year and has become an incredibly popular weight loss supplement. It was mentioned on the Dr. Oz show, it appears in literally hundreds of Amazon listings, and it's spread to dozens of countries around the globe.
In case you haven't heard of it, African mango extract is made from a fruit from Cameroon called Irvingia gabonensis, which has been used in traditional medicine in Africa for hundreds if not thousands of years.
But traditional medicine is a far cry from medical fact. As the public gets greater and greater access to research information and is subject to more and more bogus campaigns for fad weight loss products, it's more important than ever to get solid, timely, trustworthy evidence that a supplement does what the people selling it to you claim.

People choose to work out with a personal trainer for all sorts of reasons: maybe they struggle to motivate themselves, or are bored with their existing routines and need some help to switch things up a little. They could be experienced exercisers who feel that their fitness levels have reached a plateau, or new to exercise and not confident that they’ll be able to get the best out of their work-out on their own.
Whatever the reason, if you’ve decided to take the plunge and get a personal trainer, finding the right one can be a daunting experience. Here are some tips that may help you.
Firstly, spend some time mulling over what sort of personal trainer you’d like. Would you prefer a male or female PT? What will motivate you - someone who’ll bark at you military-style, or someone who’ll adopt a softly-softly approach? How often do you want to train, and at what time of day? Very importantly – what do you want to achieve? If you’re armed with this information, it will make it easier to find the right PT.
