How to Get Dates With Female Fitness Models

It’s not a secret that female fitness models are the hottest girls you can parade in town. Who can’t help but lust over their toned physique and tight booties? You surely want to date one of them but how do you spot them? I do have few solutions for you:

Hit the gym

Going to the gym will give you the highest probability that you will find one. If you need some boost in the physical department, be a regular in the gym and chances are, you might bump into a pretty fitness model. I am sure, as a guy, you have few effective pick up lines in mind. You may want to begin the conversation by asking how long had she been working out. If you’re more confident ask her what routines does she apply to tone her abs and her arms (Do not mention about her ass!). How about asking her some pointers on becoming more fit? At least you will have something in common.

Do not hint that you’re only there just to spot a sexy girl who you can ask for a date. Pretend to be very interested and dedicated on the treadmill. Don’t give out your primary intention of going to the gym by going near every lady in the room. Choose the one you like most and apply your “hook up” strategies.

Visit a friend in the gym

If you do not like the idea of being in those sweat pants and plain shirts, you can still go to the gym and visit someone there whom you know. Of course, you would look more polish than the rest. Be aware with the people inside the room. If your eye caught a gorgeous girl who looks like a fitness model, ask her if she had seen that person you’re looking for. Yes it’s a lame excuse but at least you were able to start the conversation.

Join any sports-related club

Don’t limit yourself into thinking that these women are only found in the gym whole day. They may be in the tennis club near you or having fun in the volleyball court. If you will be able to impress them with your moves, you get a good chance here. Girls like guys who appear to be strong, someone who exhibits strength and stamina. During the break, approach one of them and sport your sexiest smile.

Try your luck on any seasonal sports fest

They are actually everywhere clad in their skimpy sports attire especially on summer sports fests and maybe spring break. Show them your sporty side and more likely they will permit you to get to know them better.

On the Date

They may appear to be strong with their hard-earned great physique, but like most girls, these fitness models would also want to be pampered. Think of a romantic dinner. Be unpredictable. After trying something posh, go sporty with her by asking her to try sports she did not have a chance to …

The Argument Against Universal Healthcare

The idea of a nationalized healthcare system has been around for a long time, and like most other social ideas, it sounds good when you first hear it.  Healthcare for everyone in the United States would be a dream come true for lots of families but the problems with universal healthcare far outweigh the benefits.  Many countries have tried this and failed because of some basic ideas that aren’t even being considered.

  1. The Competition – or lack there of.  One of the things that made this country great is the free market principle of competition.  Doctors spend years in medical school to graduate and join the ranks of practicing MDs.  When they do, they usually have huge debts to repay and big dreams of being successful, rich doctors.  Competition creates winners and these doctors strive to be the best so they can make a name for themselves and ultimately make more money.  In a universal healthcare system, the government decides what a doctor can charge and they all make the same amount.  There is no longer a reason for a doctor to strive to be the best because there is no reward for doing so.  This hinders medical advancement and makes everyone take the same sub-standard healthcare; it also greatly reduces the drive for people to become doctors at all.  I understand that the need to help others should always come first, but that won’t pay off years of student loans and put food on the table.
  2. The Cost – somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 trillion per year.  That makes the recent stimulus package from congress seem small by comparison.  Large numbers like this tend to fall on deaf ears because no one really knows how much that is.  To give you an idea, it’s $10,000 per year for every person living in this country.  The reason healthcare costs have risen to where they are is because we have already begun moving toward socialized healthcare for several years now.  It works like this:  Medicare and Medicaid put about 20% of the country in a free healthcare program, but someone has to pay for it; so the other 80% see a rise in their healthcare costs.  This causes more people from the 80% to lose their healthcare because they can no longer afford it and they join the other 20% who are getting it for free.  Healthcare costs continue to rise for those who are paying for it as more and more people get it for free; but in the end, this money has to come from somewhere.  The only way to fix this problem is to un-socialize the system and make healthcare affordable to more people.  One company with a solution is Ameriplan Health.  In this health program, doctors offer big discounts for all their services in exchange for payment from the patient… no insurance or big government to get in the way.
  3. The Government – can’t do anything efficiently.  Every program that our government has taken over dies

Fitness: Sports Fitness – Fun Way to be Healthy

When you talk about sports fitness, what comes first in your mind? It is, basically, the different sports activities, right? This is because sports fitness has always been referred to as the sports itself.

Generally, sports entail physical activities that are usually carried out for some “recreational” functions such as self-satisfaction, entertainment, competition, etc. It uses physical activity that is why most fitness experts regard sports as one way of staying fit and healthy. It can also be considered as one way of physical fitness; the only difference is that sports fitness is more inclined to the development of skill or ability.

However, like physical fitness, sports fitness is also capable of toning down the body fats of a person. Because of its rigid and strict health program, a sports enthusiast is able to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle in order to cope up with the strenuous demands of sports.

In sports, people should learn how to value their health. Otherwise, they can never endure the kind of energy that is required when playing sports activities.

Therefore, for people whoa re into sports fitness, here are some tips that you could use in order to stay healthy and be active on whatever sports you want to pursue:

1. Drinks lots of water

Humans can survive days, or even months without food, but they can never last a day without water.

Water is, indeed, the most important element needed by the body. Excessive perspiration, without any means of replenishing the lost fluids will result to serious health problems, and even death.

Therefore, for people who are into strenuous exercises and trainings, it is best to always drink lots of water.

However, for sports enthusiasts, water may not be enough to replace the kind of fluid lost. Hence, it would be better if they would have sports drinks instead. Aside from the fluid, sports drinks have tow additional important ingredients needed by a person who is into sports fitness: carbohydrates and electrolytes.

Electrolytes are usually lost during strenuous physical activity, and this can only be replaced through sports drinks. Carbohydrates, on the other hand, are also needed by the body during rigid workouts to provide more energy so that the body can cope up to the demands of the activity.

2. More veggies!

People who are into sports fitness require more intakes of vegetables and fruits. This is because the body is craving for more vitamins and mineral supplements. It makes the body stronger and healthier enabling it to cope up with demands of the activity.

3. Calcium intake

People who are into sports fitness should have calcium present on their diet. This is to provide stronger bones to the body.

Since the body is more exposed to greater physical activities, it is important to have stronger bones in order to avoid fractures or certain bone diseases like “osteoporosis.”

Calcium can be found in different vitamin and mineral supplements. They are also abundant in foods like sardines, tofu, dairy products, etc.

4. Warm …
