    11 pages in length. With two-thirds of the American adult population overweight and just over thirty percent of them considered obese, there is no question as to the critical nature of weight management in the United States today. The influencing factors - which are mildly persuasive for some and wholly overwhelming for others – run the gamut from a thin-crazed culture to nutritionally-void fast food to an altogether uneducated society when it comes to eating a healthy diet. People have reached the point of being utterly confused and frustrated when it comes to making informed nutritional decisions, given the fact that they have been spoon-fed conflicting – albeit well-meaning – advice from myriad sources that keeps them in a perpetual state of obesity. Far too many people never gain the upper hand on their weight problem, with about 300,000 ultimately succumbing to the fatal aspects of unhealthy dietary habits and physical inactivity inherent to obesity.

Even then, the composition of food is such that it can help to once again restore health when the body has undergone trauma or disease.

    A 7 page research paper that looks at this topic. There is an old saying that "You are what you eat," which refers, of course, that it is what we consume that provides the nutritional building blocks for the body.

Researchers are, therefore, exploring the various ways in which nutrition impacts behavior. This body of data indicates that nutrition affects behavior in a profound manner. The writer particularly focuses on studies that examine the effect of nutrition on childhood development and behavior. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

Clearly, the myriad weight-reduction plans that exist throughout contemporary society are enough to confuse any potential dieter. The writer discusses how contemporary diets reflect the significant pressures placed upon those who are both impressionable and vulnerable. With the primary influence being that of popular culture, overweight individuals are faced with difficult choices when it comes to proper food choices and weight loss programs. Atkins is the focus of this paper. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Literature Review on 'Runner's High' Research

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the issues of “runner’s high”. A literature review involving “runner’s high” reveals that several areas of research have been associated with this phenomenon. During intense exercise, endorphins, originally known as endogenous morphine, are released into the blood stream resulting in a feeling of euphoria and peace for those who experience it. The release rate varies in individuals but it is generally found that it occurs at around 76% of the maximum heart rate. While increased endorphin levels have been associated with several positive side effects, many negative side effects have also been found especially in female athletes. High endorphin levels inhibit the release of a hormone needed for menstruation, luteinizing hormone (LH), resulting in menstrual complications or amenorrhea. In addition to possible side effects, researchers have also stipulated that running and exercising can be addictive. Endorphin release is also associated with alcoholism, smoking and over-eating, all considered to be addictive. However, many athletes feel that addiction to running or other forms of exercise can be considered a positive addiction as exercise can lead to a reduction in cholesterol levels and better cardiovascular health overall. While this may be true in most cases, exercise has also been found to be addictive to the level where some people eventually experience deterioration in their professional and personal lives and need counselling, psychotherapy and antidepressants in order to overcome their addiction.

  • Personality Traits Required of Health Club Personal Trainers, Class Instructors, Receptionists, and Managers

    This is an 8 page paper discussing the personality characteristics needed for managers, receptionists, class instructors and personal trainers with references to the health club setting. Throughout organizations, the personality characteristics of the employees must include a great deal of range depending on the position and the mission of the organization. While there are considered to be several types of managers, all of them should be committed, confident, energetic and hard-working among many other unique qualifications. The personalities of receptionists are particularly important because they give clients the first and lasting impression of the organization. Receptionists above all must be warm, friendly, discrete and unobtrusive in addition to be able to handle a great deal of stress brought on by unpleasant clients. Class instructors in health clubs also have unique personality characteristics. In a sense, they pick up where the receptionist left off in regards to maintaining a good impression of the organization. In addition however, they must be outgoing and perceptive enough to be able to motivate a large group of people although each person has his/her own learning preferences. Lastly, personal trainers have to even more “in tune” with the individual personalities of their clients in order to make the relationship work. Personal trainers are good listeners, good motivators and have to maintain the proper professional/personal balance with their clients. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Commitment to Exercise and Setting Goals

    12 pages in length. Motivation is one of the most critical components to maintaining exercise commitment. While that is not a disputable fact, the manner by which people achieve satisfactory motivation in order to maintain exercise commitment, however, is where many fail to uphold that resolution. Looking at the synergistic relationship between goal setting and exercise commitment leads one to realize how focusing upon a certain finite objective – reaching a goal weight, dropping a certain number of dress sizes, impressing a new love interest – becomes all-important to the final result. The predicted outcome will show how people who have a specific goal in mind – short- or long-term –when taking on an exercise program maintain much more commitment than their counterparts who have no specific direction in their fitness program. Bibliography lists 25 sources.
