Yes, we are talking about the same Rudolph. Maybe you’ve not met him but you know “His-story.” However before now he had not told “His-story,” because as he put it, “history” had distorted it, and no one would listen to him. Fortunately I got the opportunity to sit down and have a candid conversation with Rudolph – The Red-nosed Reindeer.

The story as we know it has been summed up in a Christmas Carol which we all know and love. We sing it with our kids, we sing it when we trounce through the snow caroling in our neighborhoods. It makes us feel good, makes us appreciate the season and makes us root for the underdog or under-deer in this case.

So how about if we get started!

Tony: Hello Rudolph it is an absolute pleasure to have the opportunity to finally visit with you. I have only a few questions and would like to jump right in.

How Elliptical Exercise Machines Improve Cardiovascular Health

Elliptical exercise machines are becoming more and more popular and sophisticated in their overall design since their introduction in the 90s. It is estimated that millions of Americans use elliptical trainers in their home gyms. The reason for their popularity is the low-impact design and total body workout these machines provide. Elliptical exercise machines are hard to beat when it comes to improving cardiovascular health. They are safe for older people, beginners and even expectant mothers, yet challenging enough for the most serious fitness buff.

Low Impact Design Prevents Injuries

Experts agree that weight-bearing activities such as jogging and aerobics are necessary to maintain healthy bone density. Weight-baring exercises include all activities where you remain standing on your feet. The problem is that many of these exercises are hard on the joints by jarring the bones and muscles. You may aggravate old injuries or even injure yourself all over again. Knees, ankles, hips and the back are all prone to feel the impact of these types of workouts. Therapists often prescribe low impact exercises for people recovering from an accident, people who suffer from arthritis or pregnant women. This is where elliptical exercise machines fit in.

The History of the Trampoline

The early origins of the trampoline are open to some debate although it is said that the Inuit people developed an early form of the apparatus, using a walrus skin to toss each other into the air. There is also evidence of some people in Europe being thrown into the air by a number of people holding a blanket such as Sancho Panza in the novel Don Quixote, although instances of “blanketing” such as this are clearly non-voluntary instances of quasi-judicial, mob administered punishment.

It is certain, however, that in the early years of the 20th century some acrobats used a “bouncing bed” on the stage to entertain the audience. The bouncing in bed was actually a form of small trampoline covered in bedclothes and used mostly during comedy routines.
