Former Heavyweight Boxer Tommy Morrison Dies

20130902-180043.jpg

Former Heavyweight boxer Tommy Morrison has passed away.

He died late Sunday at an Omaha, Nebraska hospital. He was 44-years-old.

There was no cause of his death, however, Morrison’s wife, has released that he died of respiratory and metabolic acidosis as well a multiple organ failure.

When Morrison was alive he went through controversy by being positive for HIV in February 1996. His mother Diana told ESPN that Morrison was dying of AIDS.

After he was diagnosed with HIV, Morrison had his personal doctor do a test and indeed it came out that he was HIV positive.

Morrison had admitted that he contracted the disease from a “promiscuous lifestyle.” He also said:

“I lived a permissive, fast and reckless lifestyle. I hope I can serve as a warning that living this lifestyle can really lead to only one thing and that’s misery. The only sure prevention of this disease is abstinence. This disease does not discriminate, and that is very, very clear to me now.”

In a recent ESPN story, it was said that Morrison was kept alive through a feeding tube and ventilator.

We here at Fit With Fallon give our condolences to the family of Tommy Morrison.

20130826-154153.jpg

Reports have shown that another famous athlete has allowed drugs to overtake his career.

Khloe Kardashian’s hubby Lamar Odom is reportedly addicted to crack cocaine.

Odom has been dealing with his drug problem for the past two years and is currently at an undisclosed location seeking help for his issue.

Last summer he spent three weeks at a rehab facility, and was reported that he was clean for the 2012-2013 season while playing for the L.A. Clippers. However, in 2001, he was suspended for violating the NBA’s substance abuse policy.

According to TMZ, things began to get shaky when Lamar’s wife Khloe Kardashian separated from him last Wednesday due to a failed family intervention.  It was reported that Kardashian is with her husband, and sticking to his side during this difficult time.

We here at Fit With Fallon hopes that Lamar gets the proper treatment and the necessary help to be healthy, and we hope to see you back on the courts! Remember, health comes first!

Well Known Weight Loss Programs Losing Customers

20130815-174800.jpg

It looks like some of the weight loss programs are actually losing some weight, the wrong weight….it’s customers. Oh no!

According to Yahoo, the popular weight loss programs such as Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, and Weight Watchers are losing money.

Jenny Craig’s sales have declined the first half of the year, Weight Watchers revenue is down 3.7 so far in this year, and even worse, Nutrisystem’s sales have declined since 2008, dropping 20 percent.

The blame? The economy.

The other blame….free apps! Apps such as My Fitness Pal has the same concept as Weight Watchers, but is free.

Weight Watcher’s Chief Financial Officer, says:

“The issue with free apps is that they’re taking trial [members] out of the market.”

The Spokesperson for Nestle (which owns Jenny Craig) Edie Burge  says:

“The entire weight-loss category is going through a transition during a difficult economic environment.”

The unfortunate part is that the Lean Cuisine meals, which Nestle makes, have also declined in sales.

NutriSystem Chief Executive Dawn Zier does not blame the internet. She believes that people only come to Nutrisystem because they want something more structured and was unable to find so elsewhere.

Aside from the commercials, Nutrisystem recently started selling five-day weight loos kits at Walmart to boost it retail sales.

On the other hand, weight loss programs such as Herbalife, Medifast, and USANA Health Services have done well so far this year.

Well, we hope that there is a level playing field, because as much as obesity is on the rise, these programs are a way of hope.

nick jonas

Who’s the hottie with the great body? Why that’s Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers!

But there is a catch as to how he is able to maintain that nice physique of his.

When Nick was just 13-years-old, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

Since being diagnosed, he had to make a huge cut back on his sugar as well as staying away from soda.

The 20-year-old Jonas recently took to the Internet to post his pic, also writing:

“I never do this but…Healthy living and fitness update. Post workout picture. #diabeticinshape #2.0.”

Nick also told Good Housekeeping mag in 2011 that he eats a lot of eggs since its good for him, and gets into the gym as much as possible.

We credit you Nick for staying strong and keeping up that great bod despite your disease. True soldier!

20130809-062231.jpg

Actor Jerry O’Connell is a man of many speedos…literally!

For his new role on the CBS sitcom “We Are Men,” O’Connell shows off his great bod in speedos…A lot of speedos at that! There’s no problem with that!

He discussed his role wearing the speedos at a Television Critics Association event, saying:

“It is probably the most nerve-racking job for me to put those on every morning. We’re a couple episodes in and I’m in the speedo continually.” Don’t be so modest, Jerry!

But O’Connell’s beautiful and famous wife, former Sports Illustrated Mag model Rebecca Romijn gave him some pointers on how to get speedo ready.

O’Connell revealed:

“My wife’s advice was ‘Go get a tan, do some pushups, and maybe do some pilates.”

Although O’Connell didn’t quite follow his wife’s advice, he did make some healthy changes.

“I have joined a gym and I’ve started drinking light beer,” O’Connell said.

Good job, Jerry! Glad you are making some healthy changes to get that great speedo body!

Beyonce & Jay-Z Bike Around NYC

20130812-074259.jpg

Beyonce recently showed off her fitness abilities when she rode her bike across the Brooklyn bridge.

She proved that she’s just like us normal people by opting to ride her bike to her last concert at the Barclay’s Center on Monday night, which also prompted her to post an Instagram pic of her doing so, saying:

“I biked to Barclay’s for my last show in Brooklyn!”

But Bey is not the only one who rode her bike, look’s like her fitness habits have rubbed on hubby Jay-Z! A few days later after Bey posted her pic, Mr. Carter posted a pic of himself on Instagram riding a mountain bike around the city.

No wonder Beyonce has the great legs like she does! According to Women’s Health, the benefits from bike riding is that it can give you some sexy legs. Not only do you utilize your quads, glutes, and calves to propel the bike, but another benefit is that is can work the upper body as well. It can give the bike rider a balanced tone.

So the next time you want to run a quick errand, instead of taking your car, take some pointers from Mr. and Mrs. Carter and use that bike.
