Celebrity Body on a Budget – A Weight Loss Solution Designed to Meet Anyone’s Needs

My recent discovery of the book, Celebrity Body on a Budget was quite revealing; and I’m not just talking about the bronze Malibu hotties on the cover. Written by celebrated ‘Personal Trainer to the Stars’ Cornel Chin, this handy little book is a lot more substance than the glamour title lends one to expect.

My interest was peaked although I was still expecting a high glamour rendition of fitness fluff and a lot of ego from a celebrated trainer. I couldn’t have been further off base. This 200 page paper back is not only chock-full of high quality information to lend you immediate results – it also delivers in a big way on the title expectation of doing it without requiring any spend from the piggy bank.

Not only are these ideas, tools and exercises easy on the wallet (they cost nothing – not even a gym membership), they are also efficient on the schedule as Cornel details in short and concise fashion (along with lots of pictures showing proper technique – sorry, none of Leo) exactly how you can leverage your everyday routines to get in shape quickly.

Easy on the wallet and easy on the time schedule? That’s right. And you’ll be provided a plethora of ways to seamlessly integrate these activities into your current routine and schedule.

Surprisingly, the book starts out with a core look at body types and fitness fundamentals. Once you take a quick look at his diagrams of the Ectomorph, Endomorph and Mesomorph body types, you’ll know which one you have and how to leverage activities and exercises to compliment your God-given attributes. Next, Cornel will take through a fun set of insights into how you work activities into your present schedule. As you discover quick and easy ways to integrate more activity into your day – and along the way discover simple methods of working parts of your body that probably never get much attention – you will begin to realize that getting great results quickly really is possible.

Next is where Cornel really begins to shine and deliver on his title promise: “Celebrity Body on a Budget”. He’ll simplify the process for you of selecting equipment or providing low cost alternatives. In today’s economy, we can all take a lesson from frugality and Cornel shows you how to do it without painful compromise.

And that is only half the book. Additionally, you will be provided exercise solutions specific to your degree of achievement and your personal fitness level. These sections are loaded with specifics and the layout and pictures make it easy to go from reading to doing. You’ll then be treated to an entire section on food solutions, preparation and recipes. Smart, economical and good to eat.

The closing sections on motivation and the keen insights on keeping the focus will arm you to not only get started but to keep going as well. This book’s author has been a fitness professional for almost 20 years – and to some of the most demanding clients anyone could have – successfully. They all clamour about his work and the results he provides. Now you can get those same results regardless of what your budget provides.

Remote Backup Solution As Alternative To Tape Backup

Miles away the data sitting on the desktop of your office situated in a remote location is waiting to be backed up. Because of lack of proper infrastructure and resources important data generated at the remote offices stand the chance of getting lost permanently through corruption or accidental deletion. This has been a common issue faced by companies with remote offices and branch offices for years. Dearth of local IT skills, inadequate network bandwidth that hinders the transfer of large amount of data contributes to the challenges associated with remote site backup. But technological advancement has paved the way for remote backup solution designed to make the entire process of storing and subsequently restoring your important digital documents easy. Such solution is also useful for laptop and other mobile device backups, enabling data protection even outside office premise. Hence the use of remote backup solution is slowly found to be gaining momentum.

• Remote backup solution has edge over tape backup

Because of the advantages it provides remote backup solution is nowadays looked upon as a fitting alternative to tape backups. This kind of advanced backup solution operates by gathering data from users’ computers and then compressing and sending the same to an offsite server that can be used to restore the original if required. Using remote backup solution allows you to do away with the common issues related to tape backup such as improper handling of storage media, inability to carry the backup media offsite for safe storage etc. When the remote site data is not very large and is not subject to frequent changes the backup system can be used to take local snapshots for transfer to a remote storage array for offsite data protection. This is particularly advantageous for small businesses that do not have to deal with fat database. However when the amount of data is large enough to create impediment for data replication the backup solution can leverage data duplication technology. This process involves the saving changes made to the data regardless of the amount of changes made. This helps in data reduction to a large extent. Further WAN optimization that replaces identical data sequences with pointers allows the backup software to reduce the amount of data sent across the network. Although this kind of arrangement is more suitable for larger organization, small business services can also benefit from the WAN acceleration devices that address bandwidth challenges.

• Remote backup solution meets cloud

A number of vendors are available in the market providing cloud based remote backup services. This is a kind of online backup service that stores your data on the service provider’s remote server that can be accessed by the user via internet any time of the day or night. It requires minimum management at the users’ end and its effectiveness is largely dependent on the backup schedules set on the basis of recovery time objective and recovery point objective. With the cloud based remote backup solution you can avoid the cumbersome process of backing up data on tapes.

Data backup requirements vary according to the size and activities of organizations. But undoubtedly remote backup solution is all set to meet varying degrees of backup needs and replace tape backups in the long run.
