CYCLE OF CONFERENCES HEALTHY LIFE
The events of this dimension should always provide exhibitions of topics covered and current and, as is obvious, the us Fit has not ceased to do so. With the panels conceptualized and national benchmarks in the area of fitness, nutrition and health promotion, the mornings of the two days were dedicated to the sharing of information and discussion.
1. EXERCISE AND HEALTH PROMOTION
The first large block of the cycle of conferences began with the theme of the exercise with a view to the promotion of health, had not been for the Portugal Fit an event related with the sport. This featured three outstanding speakers and three topics very relevant.
Hugo Pereira began with the theme “Exercise to manage weight”, where the importance of the practice of regular physical exercise was reinforced as a way to lose and maintain weight over the long term. Cesar Chaves spoke of the delicate topic of what the role of the teacher in the gym and António Palmeira launched the introduction of new technologies in the promotion of exercise and health, in particular apps that have been making part of the day-to-day of those who practice physical exercise.
Here are the 4 best apps to train and 5 fitness accessories to maximize your workout.
In a world of formatted to do more and better, the stress generated in response to personal or professional cause that more and more people become refugiem in the food. And, so, Marlene Silva unraveled some secrets to not feed the stress.
Then, Susana Veloso introduced the concept of Mindfulness, a mental state characterized by the self-regulation of attention to the present, and that implies an open attitude, broad and tolerant, as a way to accept, understand and know how to deal with all types of sensations, and day to day problems.
Learn here what to do when stress makes you fat!
One of the blocks most expected, with contentious issues and very interesting they put the nutrition of the noise. Starting with the Nutritionist Rui Jorge who released it to the arena, the theme of the milk: “Can you drink milk: yes or no?”.
After checking many arguments duly validated scientifically, namely osteoporosis, cancer, weight management, cardiovascular disease, and pregnancy, it was simple to realize that the milk can and should be a food insert on a food plan that is balanced and varied, unless there is some contraindication (allergy to milk protein, for example).
With a vision different from what is expected in a panel of nutrition, Avelino Ormonde surprised with The power of vegetables” in the promotion of health, giving tips of how to maximize its effect on the body. In a perspective of botany, the booster BioFontinhas spoke of the importance of the intake of different families of vegetables (roots, tubers, flowers and leaves), and the rotation of different vegetables with a view to the best advantage of its beneficial effects.
And because the children were not forgotten, Ana the little Houses and reinforced the importance of healthy snacks for the children to take to school that should exclude processed products and the typical cakes and soft drinks, should be replaced by fruit, vegetables, bread/cereals and proteins of high biological value such as milk, yogurt or egg.
Is in fashion and, therefore, could not be spoken by Pedro Almeida, Cláudia Minderico and Rita Marques. The first speaker with the topic “Prepare for the evidence” he used three adjectives key to characterise all the people who want to prepare for a trial of running: resilient, committed and disciplined.
Cláudia Minderico spoke of the importance of nutrition before, during, and after the evidence, giving special attention to the hydration constant and the timings of the intake of simple carbohydrates and complex. Rita Marques finished with the “suitable Equipment for the race – what there is and what to choose”, with several options on the market.
Here’s what the best running shoes running the time.
THE LARGEST TRADE FAIR FOR FITNESS EUROPE
It was remarkable the number of stands at the event with an exhibition of the most varied products. Over the two floors were arranged the various equipments to training sites such as gyms and boxes of crossfit, as well as brands of vesturário sports as Susana Gateira, Botton, Reciff, Reebok, Sport Zone, Patuá, among many others.
We found several well-known faces such as Raquel Henriques with the brand Bumbumfit and Marco Costa with the brand Giant Gym Wear, two public figures dedicated to the cult of the body and who have already participated in various competitions of physical culture.
Stands of major brands of supplementation were not lacking, as the Brand, which had a red carpet where you marked the presence of big names as César Araújo, athlete power lifting, and dedicated to bodybuilding, which surprised those present with a moment of lifting the weight with a series of 3×300 kg, then ventured over 320 lbs!!!
Some brands present they gave wings to the imagination with regards to the activities provided. It was the example of the Fruut who has released a contest to bust the balloon in which the Active Life he participated in; the Jazzy that in addition to its “wheel of fortune” made demos of dance and Pole Dance; Susana Gateira that promoted different contests with the participants, and animation of the dance; and Therefore that with a machine of games fun and gave prizes to those who participated.
It could not be, the technology in the area of fitness was highlighted with the presentation of the most varied applications and software to aid sports performance, both for use of the sportsman as to the use of their own personal trainers and gyms.
Healthy food choices also were not lacking. It was the example of Love in Green, a brand of machines, smoothies, milks, and juices vegetables, which is highlighted by tasty and appealing final product that offer, and Here there is a Granola that has released multiple products that can be part of a healthy diet, taking as a basis the granola.
The Solinca, Fitness Hut, Jazzy and Vivafit were some of the gyms that also attended the event.
A SUCCESSFUL EVENT
In general, the us Fit has exceeded the expectations. Organized and with a lot of action to the mix, was the ideal place to spend a weekend different, healthy and active. The location of the event was that the movement became easy and intuitive, which helped a lot to the adherence of the same.
The energy and delivery of all the participants and teachers of the master classes were contagious, and this is reflected in full the spirit and the essence that an event of such importance should have.
The variety of products and brands present allowed the audience to get the best out of the best deals and have access to new information is the level of product, service, or technology. A junction of materials and means for better sports performance and that motivate any practitioner of the sport, from start to professional.
As less points strong have highlighted the shortage of hooks (free, but insufficient, taking into account the large number of users) and the lack of space in the room where the competitions took place in bodybuilding. The interest for this sport has attracted each time more out of curiosity and because it’s a final, the venue should have been bigger, to avoid closed doors to the public.
Waiting with much anticipation for a return to the large, already scheduled for 2016 and 2017.
