Harley Pasternak: Netflix Exercise

Posted: Updated:

Netflix and celebrity fitness expert Harley Pasternak have teamed up for The Netflix Exercise Effect - the research-based notion that people who use entertainment, like Netflix, as a workout tool experience better fitness outcomes than those who listen to music or have no distraction. Every January, Americans eagerly jump on the fitness bandwagon, but too many people fall off. Netflix is the easy, sustainable and fun remedy for exercise boredom and fatigue. Scientific research proves consuming entertainment content, like Netflix, while working out has these benefits: lower dropout rates, longer periods of exercise, ability to stick with a fitness regimen, perceived exertion lower than actual exertion, voluntarily increased performance, and more (I can send you the research papers if desired). A great New Year's resolution is to pick up a show you've been waiting to watch and agree to only watch it while moving - such as Scandal, Orange is the New Black¸ etc.

Fun facts: You can burn off the donut and milk you ate for breakfast (approximately 300 calories) by watching just one sitcom while running on the treadmill at 5mph. If you cycled at a leisurely pace while streaming every episode of the "24" series (one episode a day for 6.5 months), you could lose up to 15 pounds.
