Bosco likes group obstacle challenges like Tough Mudders. “Exercising with a crowd has a plethora of intertwined benefits, including improving consistency, duration, motivation, conversation, and inspiration,” says Dian Griesel, PhD. “Workouts with others improve consistency because they create an obligation. No shows and cancellations are noticed by others, and positive peer pressure can help reduce the urge 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, DNP. “While tending a yard, perform functional movements that mimic exercise. You perform squats and lunges while weeding. Carrying bags of mulch and other supplies trains major muscle groups. Digging, raking, and using a push mower can be physically are high-intensity activities.”
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 manage some of the effects of type 2 diabetes,” says registered nutritionist Jo Lewin. “In particular, they seem to regulate blood sugar and control blood pressure. More research is needed to validate these effects in humans.”
Bosco likes swimming sessions in the pool. “Swimming is the fourth most popular sport activity in the United States and a great way to get regular aerobic exercise,” says the GGD. “Just two and a half hours a week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, cycling or running, can reduce the risk of chronic disease. This can also lead to better health for people with diabetes and heart disease. Swimmers have about half the risk on death compared to inactive people. People report that they enjoy exercising on water more than on land. They can also exercise longer in water than on land without additional exertion or joint or muscle pain.”
Bosco jumps rope for a pre-workout warm-up. “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 movement.”
