Fitness for Life

Exercise is the only activity that has been demonstrated to reduce the risk and progression of dementia across the board. We can do sudoku or crosswords, and that will help our ability to do sudoku or crosswords, respectively. Other activities don't seem to be affected by specific mental tasks. Only exercise helps our mental abilities across the board. Staying fit also helps us physically, of course. Fitness for Life!

In addition, we are in this for the long haul. Any decent exercise plan includes accomodations that encourage exercising the next time. If we stop exercising, the benefits of past exercise decline. What have we done for ourselves lately? Fitness for Life!

May 2020 HTML Defending against Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis typically causes a stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot near the heel. The pain is usually the worst with the first few steps after awakening, although it can also be triggered by long periods of standing or when you get up after sitting. The pain is usually worse after exercise, not during it. — Mayo Clinic

Apr 2020 HTML Sole E95 Assembly in Captioned Pictures

Much better than the manual or a video, these 144 still photos, with detailed captions, show the details of assembling a new Sole E95 Elliptical. I spent about nine hours methodically assembling and photographing mine, with a couple of breaks. You won't see my mistakes, but you will see how to avoid them. With this resource, you might expect to do the job in four hours.

These photos should apply to the E35 and E98 as well, and possibly to other models.
