Why TrekFit? - TrekFit is a program offered by a Registered and Licensed Dietitian geared for Global Health, Fitness and Nutrition. Trekking means "be on the trail, or be on the move or walking." Walking is a form of aerobic exercise that can be easily integrated into your daily routine. Walking can significantly help build your cardiovascular fitness.
Running and walking are both excellent aerobic activities which promote weight loss, improve blood pressure control and cholesterol levels and decrease the risk of chronic diseases. However, walking is an easy type of physical activity which can be manageable by many people of different levels of physical health. Walking is also an enjoyable activity which can be a social event in the form of easy stroll around the park with a friend of family, or it can be an ardous trek on the mountain trails by avid hikers, and can be done all year long.
For beginners, walking can be an easy workout starter, especially for those with health or weight problems. A 5-minute walk daily can be a good start, which you can build up according to your tolerance and endurance and make it a part of your daily living. Walking benefits many people, especially those who are overweight or obese because it is a low impact exercise and it is less likely damaging to the joints in the lower extremities. It is important however, that if you have certain medical conditions that you must consult your doctor before engaging in any form of physical activity.

TrekFit History - TrekFit was born on the eve of the perceived new millenium (2000) atop Blood Mountain, Georgia. Driven by our desires to enjoy weekend with nature, we hiked up the Appalachian Trail towards the Blood Mountain summit. It was a night of tornadic activity where our fear for the world to end was out of sight, yet the wondering presence to be airborne by nightfall was gravitating our urge to get a good night sleep, as if it was our last. Waking up to the new millenium with an airplane sound made us realize that contrary to what others have feared for the world to end...
Trekking - By being physically active, many chronic diseases can be prevented. Trekking can simply be walking your dog around your culdesac or at a nearby park with a self-managed pace. Trekking can also be as difficult as hiking in the mountain which involves acending to vertical elevation, bushwhacking a difficult trail and returning in a very steep descent. Contrary to routine activities at the gym, trekking is a therapeutic adventure where the nature's scene soothes the soul and the mind. Physical activity is essential in a healthy lifestyle, yet only half of the American population engage in any form of exercise.
Nutrition - Why Nutrition? - It is not difficult to understand that disparity exists among the human fold. Hunger and starvation continue to challenge the survival of the poor and less fortunate people who continue to rely on limited food supply. Without realizing the importance of many different nutrients found in many different foods, the poor people will eat whatever is edible and available just to survive. And so, many suffer from poor health conditions, such as poor growth and development of the vulnerables. Among those are the very young, the pregnant and the very old.
