saucony trainers If your joints are up to a little impact, you don't need an elliptical trainer to run or walk -- you can do it anywhere there's room for your sneakers to move. Except for the difference in impact, running and walking yield the same benefits you'd get from using an elliptical trainer: They're all types of weight-bearing exercise that can boost your immune system, improve your cardiovascular health, lighten your mood and shrink your waistline.

Other Gym Machines

The elliptical trainer isn't the only piece of cardio equipment in the gym that offers a full-body workout. Try the rower: Your legs work to push the seat back, and your upper body works to haul the handle in toward your chest with each stroke.

Treadmills give you the freedom to walk and run as you would on an elliptical, but exercise bikes and stair steppers are good alternatives if you need to stick to low-impact exercise.

Water Workouts

If you're still looking for a low-impact, full-body alternative to the elliptical trainer, try swimming, water aerobics or even water jogging. The water supports your body -- allowing greater and more comfortable range of motion -- and provides resistance with every movement. If you tend to overheat when you work out, exercising in a relatively cool pool may also be more comfortable than working out on dry land.

Outdoor Exercise

Try sweep rowing for a full-body workout or, if you're more the solitary type, vigorous kayaking provides a great upper-body workout to go with your cardiovascular exertion. Bicycling and inline skating are other low-impact alternatives you can do anywhere you've got a stretch of flat pavement to play on. dsrteaarm1569

Once you understand how they process information, you will understand exactly how to communicate to them. There are 4 different learning styles, which are also referred to as representational systems. This is the way your customers represent information within their own minds. Here are the four: Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, and Auditory Digital.

Here are some of the characteristics of visual people. Stand erect, eyes are up, breathing from top of lungs, speak quickly, see pictures. They are very interested in how something looks. They use words such as: I see, that looks good to me, it appears, show me, imagine, crystal clear, I get the picture, hazy. They use phrases such as it appears to me, I need to catch a glimpse, in light of these new circumstances, paint a picture for me, tunnel vision, you're a sight for soar eyes.

Most people don't know the rhyme or reason of how to communicate effectively. Now you know something that very few people understand. This will accelerate your interpersonal skills and allow you to become a master communicator and influencer of others. Now let's move on to auditory learners.

Auditory learners tend to sound like a radio announcer, with a deep, penetrating voice. They talk to themselves at times. They like to be told how they are doing and they are interested in what you say. They use words such as hear, listen, sound, rings a bell, tune in, resonates, silence. They use phrases such as: I want to be clear as a bell, give me your ear for a moment; Am I loud and clear?

Here is a great phrase to use in a sales situation with an auditory learner. "If I could tell you a way you would want to hear about it wouldn't you." Notice how we are using the exact words an auditory learner would respond to.

Kinesthetic learners process information by feeling and touching. Here are some characteristics to help you identify if someone is primarily kinesthetic: Breath bottom of lungs, talk slowly, respond to touching, physical rewards etc...

They use words such as: Feel, grasp, get a hold of, solid, tap into something, come to grips, get a handle, get in touch, that slipped my mind, walk hand and hand through this. Here is some powerful language to use in a sales situation with a kinesthetic learner: If we can get a handle on a concrete way for you to produce better results you will want to move forward won"t you. You also want to continually check in with your customers asking them questions such as: How does that feel? (notice the word feel)

Here is a great way to communicate to an auditory digital learner in a sales situation: How about if I lay this out in a way that makes sense so you can conceptualize it?

By now, you should understand how these powerful representational systems can help you become a master communicator in life and business. Ok, that's my empowerment coaching for the day.
