Obstacle Course Race
Bosco loves group obstacle challenges such as Tough Mudders. "Working out with a crowd carries a plethora of intertwined benefits that include enhancing consistency, duration, motivation, conversation and inspiration," says Dian Griesel, PhD. "Workouts with others improve consistency because they involve a commitment. 'No shows' and cancellations get noticed by others and positive peer pressure can help curtail the urges to skip a workout … or quit."
Bosco enjoys gardening with her family. "A busy day in the garden can be a good form of exercise," says Lisa Wimmer, D.N.P. "While tending a garden, you perform functional movement that mimics whole body exercise. You perform squats and lunges while weeding. Carrying bags of mulch and other supplies works large muscle groups. Digging, raking and using a push mower can be physically intense activities."
Homemade Ice Cream
Bosco is a big fan of healthy homemade ice cream bars, made with strawberries and bananas. "Strawberries contain protective plant compounds called polyphenols, two of which – ellagic acid and ellagitannins – have shown promise in helping to manage some of the effects of type 2 diabetes," says registered nutritionist Jo Lewin. "In particular, they appear to regulate blood sugar and manage blood pressure. More research is needed to validate these effects in humans."
Bosco loves swimming sessions in the pool. "Swimming is the fourth most popular sports activity in the United States and a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity," says the CDC. "Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. This can also lead to improved health for people with diabetes and heart disease. Swimmers have about half the risk of death compared with inactive people. People report enjoying water-based exercise more than exercising on land. They can also exercise longer in water than on land without increased effort or joint or muscle pain."
Bosco jumps rope for a pre-workout warmup. "Jumping rope improves balance and stability in the lower body," says AFAA-certified personal trainer Stephanie Mansour. "The ankle and knee joints stabilize with every single movement."
