Week 5, Master Marketing Class

Well everyone as you can see the new graphics for the header and footer have now been added to this web site.  Don’t they look great?  Planet Divinity really did a terrific job for everyone.  Daniel did a great job on the videos this week for John.  He, like john stepped us through the entire process of saving the graphics to our computers, uploading the graphics to the web site and into the WordPress Blog software.

It has taken me some time to get my blog in this week due to my mother breaking her hip.  I had to travel by car half way across the country to reach “home” to be with Dad.  My Dad is 86 and my mother turned 88 on March 4th.  This was not the way she intended to spend her birthday.  Things for her are really tough right now, but she is a very strong willed woman that I admire tremendously and she will make it through this mess.

On Sunday we are having our first webinar.  I’ll be busy doing things for my folks during the webinar, but thank goodness John is recording the event that I can catch latter that evening.  As I’ve said before, this is a terrific class and I am really enjoying learning from one of the best.

Popular Aerobic Exercises

Walking  – Walking is one of the simplest and most popular aerobic exercises. Walking allows you to vary the intensity of your workout to match your fitness level. The only equipment that you need to start an aerobic walking program is a good pair of walking shoes. Optional walking equipment includes a treadmill, heart rate monitor, and a pedometer. Walking can be done both indoors and outdoors which allows you to continue exercising throughout the year. You can walk indoors on a treadmill, mall, or at an indoor track. Walking is a great choice for those who are just starting their first exercise program. Walking causes very little stress on your body and is one of those aerobic exercises that you can do everyday with very little risk of injury. If you intend on using walking as your primary exercise, it’s important that you walk aerobically. Aerobic walking is an intense form of exercise which focuses on your health. For walking to be an effective form of aerobic exercise you must maintain good posture, a 90-degree arm swing, and a good pace. The arm swing helps to propel you as you walk. You’ll also want to maintain as fast as pace as you are capable of and then gradually increase your pace. Aerobic walking can help you achieve your weight loss and fitness goals but you may find that walking isn’t enough. Walking may become too easy for you and you may find that you just can’t seem to lose those last few pounds.

Cycling – Cycling is another popular aerobic exercise. Cycling can be done indoors on a stationary bike or outside on a regular bike. Cycling is an ideal form of exercise for individuals who have joint problems and are unable to walk for an extended period of time without pain or difficulty. A combination of walking and cycling provides many cardiovascular benefits. Cycling is also very beneficial for people who are more than 50 pounds overweight. Cycling helps the heart without the stress on the back, hips, knees and ankles.


Jogging – Jogging is another very popular aerobic exercise and is very beneficial in weight loss. Jogging can be performed indoors on a treadmill or indoor track or outdoors. Before making jogging your primary form of aerobic exercise you should be aware that jogging places a lot of stress on your muscles, ligaments, and joints. You should check with your doctor before making jogging your primary form of exercise. If you do plan on making jogging your primary form of aerobic exercise, you should restrict your jogging to four days a week. If you plan on taking up jogging, you should purchase a high quality pair of running shoes. Optional equipment for jogging is a heart rate monitor.

Aerobic Exercise Classes – Aerobic exercise classes such as step aerobics, jazzercise, boxing and water aerobics make a high quality exercise program. Aerobic classes are low impact, but injuries in muscles and joints are possible if you participate in aerobics more than four times per week. If you plan on joining aerobic exercise classes you will most likely have to join a gym. If you plan on doing aerobics, you should purchase a quality pair of shoes. A heart rate monitor is also useful.


Stair Stepping/Elliptical Trainers – Stair stepping and Elliptical trainers provide a great aerobic workout. You can stair step using a machine or climb steps in a building. Stair stepping is a great aerobic exercise because it puts little stress on your body. You don’t get as much aerobic benefit from stair stepping as you do from the other exercises that were mentioned earlier because you’re not moving all of your body weight because the stepper supports some of it and you also use fewer muscles than the other three aerobic exercises. Elliptical trainers work more muscles than a stair stepper, while still minimizing the stress on the body.  You can either purchase a stair stepper or elliptical trainer or join a gym. A heart rate monitor and a quality pair of shoes are also useful.

Aerobic exercise is a great way to lose weight because it helps you burn fat. To maximize the benefits of aerobic exercise it must be done at a certain intensity level. Exercising at the proper intensity level strengthens the heart and the entire respiratory system which results in good health and it also enhances your performance in all forms of exercise. Aerobic conditioning is the foundation of your fitness program because it prepares your body to handle other high intensity exercises. The intensity level of your aerobic workout is the most important aspect of your aerobic program. Aerobic workouts should remain an important part of any training regimen.

  Your exercise heart rate is the best way to measure the intensity of your workout. If you maintain your target heart rate, your body becomes a calorie burning machine. Training below your target zone may not be intense enough to burn sufficient calories, while training above your zone will force your body to burn calories anaerobically (without or lacking oxygen) and inefficiently. Your maximum heart rate is calculated by using the following formula 220-age= Maximum heart rate (the fastest your heart can beat) 60%-80% of this max is your THR zone. A heart rate monitor is a good tool to have so that you maintain the proper target zone. A heart rate monitor is strapped around your chest and it sends the results to a digital watch that you will be wearing. Your individual level of fitness will ultimately determine where you fall within this range. Use the following as a guide for determining your intensity level:
                                    -Beginner or low fitness level. . 50% – 60%
                                    -Average fitness level . . . . . . . . 60% – 70%
                                     -High fitness level . . . . . . . . . . . 75% – 85%
  If you workout routine is too intense, you may cause injury to yourself and not see the results that you would like to see. However, if your work out is not intense enough, you will not see any benefits. You’ll have to find an exercise program that has just the right intensity for you so that you can reap the most benefits from your exercise program. You will also need to re-work the intensity of your workout as your tolerance and endurance increases. You will need to examine your exercise routine every week or two and make the necessary changes. You should do aerobic exercise for at least twenty minutes 3-5 days per week. You should gradually work up to exercising 45-60 minutes.

Your Internet Marketing Store

Hi y’all.  (no I’m not from the south…originally from Minnesota but have lived in Virginia for 20+ years)

I want to tell you about this terrific site if you are doing anything in the realm of Internet Marketing.  I know there are hundreds of sites out there claiming to be the best and I’ve looked at many of those sites.  Most of the time they offer some of the things you’d be interested in but the cost is too much.  You can do what I used to do roming from this site to that site for individual items, but why do that when you can go to just one site and get what you need.  You only have to deal with one site for all your needs and they are great to deal with whatever your need.  I have first hand experience dealing with Planet Divinity.  No matter what problems I’ve encountered (self generated by me) they have always been helpful in resolving them even though they were not their problems.  Having partnerships like this in business is a very important commodity.

Planet Divinity offers many things on it’s site.  The key offerings are PRE-MADE WEBSITES for AdSense and  E-book that you can host and immediately begin earning money on the Internet.  They also offer CUSTOM SITES built exactly to your specifications.  They also offer CUSTOM WEBSITE GRAPHICS for every need whether it be Headers, Footers, Logo’s or just funny looking characters they can do it all.  CUSTOM PHYSICAL GRAPHICS are also available for CD Cases, Disc Labels, etc.  THIS IS TRUE PROFFESIONAL DESIGN AT INCREDIBLY AFFORDABLE PRICES.  Most of the time they will have graphics completed for you within 48 hours.  Just try to find a place that offers that timeline without an additional cost…you will not find even one.  Personally I have never waited longer than over night for my graphics.  Terrific work completed at the speed of the Internet….imagine that!!

Please check Planet Divinity out for your business or personal needs.  I am sure you will be satisfied with anything you purchase from them.  Notice the new header and footer graphics on this page that I added during the week of 2 March 2009 during my John Thornhill’s Master Marketing Class.  These graphics were purchased from Planet Divinity.  While you are visiting the site check out the software tools they offer to make Internet Marketing easy for you.

Week 4, Marketing Masterclass

I everyone.  Yesterday being Monday it was time to receive week 4 of the Masterclass.  Guess what?  It came on time.  I thought we would be ready to go with the Graphics from Planet Divinity, I mean with the slight problems I had, I still got mine within a day, but alas other haven’t ordered any yet.  So John gave us week 5 in week 4.  Then next week we will truly do week 4.  But this is week 4….hay it can’t be that complicated.

So this week we registered with AWeber for people registering with our blog.  AWeber handles mail listings, keeps track of registrants, and with only a small time from us doing setups and verbalizing, emails comfirmations and thank yous.  Really pretty great and very much needed if you are to do internet marketing.

The bottom line this week was to register/create and account with AWeber, create our first list, edit sign-up settings, get the AWeber code, edit the AWeber code to fit our page, then install the code to our blog.  This was all very easy and I completed the entire weeks lesson in less than two hours.  I did not rush at all.  I read all the written content, viewed each entire video lesson, and even looked at the videos provided by AWeber for each step.

Cheers, Jay

Anticipation of Week 4

Well here I am again, waiting on the new week to begin for the John Thornhill’s Marketing Masterclass.  I received my new graphics from Planet Divinity yesterday (thanks Steve).  So now I am waiting for guidance from John on how to load the graphics into the themes.  I could probably figure this out on my own, but I am paying for John to instruct me to how to do these things the correct way the first time.  I am going to try and do this step by step so I don’t mess it up, like I did with the widgets (lol).

I had planned on watching my car and bike shows on SPEED Channel this morning and then getting outside to do some yard work, but the weather isn’t cooperating.  It has started raining/snowing out several times and I really don’t want to be out in it.  Plus the wind is blowing a bit and the wind chill is always the clincher on these type of project for me.

Yesterday morning I went down to Waugh Harley Davidson to visit with the owner and other friends that stopped by as they always do on the weekends.  There is always a pot of coffee on and welcoming faces at Waugh HD.  The only thing missing is a good draft beverage.  The weather was nicer yesterday and it was great to get some fresh air out on the front porch sitting in a rocking chair. 

This afternoon is as another NASCAR Sprint Cup Race from Fontana, California.  Yesterday I found time to watch the Craftsman Truck Race in the afternoon and the Nationwide Series Race which came on last night.  All racing is good racing to me.
