MMA: Fitness Club brings out best in fighters, everyday people

Marvin Goodwin

I work out with Ben (Lagman) in a fitness program and I do jiu jitsu. David Royce, 54, of White Lake, works out at least twice a week, donning the gloves for MMA sparring and conditioning. He was an active MMA competitor up until around six years ago but now sticks solely to training. Ive been the oldest guy in the gym, said Royce, a former flight instructor who relishes the physical activity. Its very energizing. (But) youve got to be focused in what you do. As for Lagman, hes focused on training others while preparing for his big fight.

Snoring Sounds Warning Bells: Expert

How Snoring Can Wreak Havoc On A Marriage

Photo / Ben Fraser The impacts of snoring can be far more serious than just sleepless nights, a leading Australian doctor warns. Poor behaviour, learning difficulties, and long-term problems can all stem from obstructive sleep apnoea – and snoring more than three times a week is a key sign that something more serious could be up, Dr Irene Bomba said. The Australian orthodontist, who works in the sleep clinic at Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, was one of the guest speakers at the New Zealand Association of Orthodontists Conference in Rotorua this week. One of the topics was the problems caused by obstructive sleep apnoea, especially in children, and the role of orthodontists in helping to diagnose and treat the problem. It’s believed it affects about one in 25 New Zealand men and one in 50 New Zealand women and children. Maori are four times more likely to be affected. Dr Bomba said her real focus was on better educating the medical profession to take the problem seriously.

Snoring in kids could mean other problems, doctors say

To avoid the symptoms of daytime sleepiness, many couples choose not to sleep together in the same bed. In the book, “Two in a Bed: The Social System of Couple Bed Sharing,” author Paul C. Rosenblatt interviewed 42 couples and examined how sharing a bed affects the couple’s relationship. Many couples described the intimacy and comfort level of sleeping in the same bed is extremely important to their relationship. As he describes in the book, in their time together before drifting off to sleep, “couples catch up on what’s going on with one another, plan, make decisions, deal with disagreements and solve problems.” With their hectic schedules, many couples often only have this time to catch up.

Mainstream media images mixed with unsolicited body comments can create challenging roadblocks that thwart feeling at ease in our newfound maternal skin. 3. Body Acceptance. The more we resist the plethora of alterations that happen to our bodies during pregnancy, the more difficulty we might have embracing the actual experience of creating and sustaining life. Acceptance can be a tall order in the midst of body fret, self-loathing or anxiety that your body will be forever enlarged or tattooed by stretch marks. But here’s the thing: worrying doesn’t modify what may or may not happen to your body as you swell over these wondrous months.
