Fitness briefs for Feb. 12

Feb 11, 2013 (The Oklahoman - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Heart health to be spotlighted during Spanish-language event Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, according to an Integris Health news release.

About 600,000 Americans die from heart disease each year -- that's one in every four deaths. Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing more than 385,000 people annually.

In the United States, someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds. Each minute, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event. Heart disease is a lifelong condition -- once you get it, you'll always have it.

Many risk factors like hypertension, high cholesterol, smoking, stress and lack of exercise can result in heart disease.

Join the Integris Hispanic Initiative, Oklahoma Marriage Initiative and Metro-Tech for an educational seminar featuring Keila Garcia on "Comunicacion Efectiva" and Dr. Marco Molina with "Salud del Corazon." The presentation will be from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Feb. 21, in the Cancer Center Conference Rooms at Integris Southwest Medical Center, Medical Office Building, 4200 S. Douglas Ave., Suite B-10.

For more information, call the Integris HealthLine at 951-2277 and press 2 for Spanish.

REVIEW Wireless headphones amp up workouts without hassle Motorola sent its S11-Flex HD Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headset to The Oklahoman for review. Having had multiple pairs of Motorola wireless headphones over the years, I can say that the S11-Flex HD is a vast improvement over earlier products. Here's a look at how they stand out: Fit: The fit is more customized than previous headphones. In the past, some have pinched the top of my ear or sat funny in the outer ear. The S11-Flex HD's adjustable earpieces solve both of these problems. Also, the S11-Flex HD comes with a rubber band that can be used to customize how the earphones sit at the back of the head. This means that the weight is distributed more evenly, making them more comfortable for longer wear. The only down side of the band is that it can get caught in your hair.

Durability: Motorola promises that these are sweat proof. From what I could tell, they are. I have never ruined a pair this way, but I did wear the S11-Flex HD while working out without destroying them.

Ease of use: Turn on the S11-Flex HD and a pleasant robotic voice tells you how long the play time is for the headphones' rechargeable battery. Previous versions just offer a warning when the battery was about to die.

Price: The list price is $130, which is in line with other wireless headphones. They are less expensive on some national retailer websites, though.

Reception: The reception was crisp and clear, no matter where my iPhone sat, which differs from other wireless headphones on the market.

One negative: The pair sent for a test did not include a carrying pouch as some previous versions have.

Overall, the headphones are a great product and recommended for those who want to workout without fighting a cumbersome cord the whole way.

-- Amy Raymond Staff Writer Fitness goals can fizzle How are those fitness resolutions working out for you If you're like most Americans, you're probably stumbling right about now.

According to data from Gold's Gym, New Year's resolutions -- at least those involving exercise and weight loss -- get harder to keep beginning on Feb. 7. That's when gym check-ins begin their decline and members lose focus.

In a news release from PR Newswire, Gold's Gym Fitness Institute expert and celebrity trainer Mike Ryan recommends these tips for getting back on track.

-- Take a class. Group exercise is a great way to inject energy into a stale routine and will help you with your pledge to get back in shape -- Upgrade your workout. Smartphone apps and fitness trackers can bring a technological aspect to your workout, giving you a new gizmo to play with and a better way to analyze your progress.

-- Don't do it alone. Working out with someone else and having a support group can drive you to succeed. A little friendly competition helps, too.

-- Get off the scale. That accusing number on the scale isn't the best indicator of your progress. Ignore that number and instead ask your gym to give you a body assessment, which will pinpoint your current fitness level -- Enlist a trainer. Even if you can only afford a trainer for one or a few sessions, it's worth it to get a program tailored to your body and fitness goals.
