Battling Ropes

Battling Ropes

“Battle rope training involves the entire body, training the neuromuscular system to apply force that begins at the core and extends through the extremities (both arms and legs). You’ll also develop a killer grip and increase your power output through exercises like power slams. Furthermore, the high intensity, rapid nature of battle rope training means that you will develop an insane amount of muscular and cardiovascular endurance—not to mention burning a ton of fat in the process.”

What is healthy weight loss?

It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. Healthy weight loss isn’t just about a “diet” or “program”. It’s about an ongoing lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits. To lose weight, you must use up more calories than you take in. Since one pound equals 3,500 calories, you need to reduce your caloric intake by 500—1000 calories per day to lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week.

Start Losing Weight Right Now

Start Losing Weight Right Now

Remember that there is no such thing as perfect conditions. If you want to change something, you have to start NOW. Not on Monday. Not tomorrow. Not a next week. But right now.  Why? Because you’ll never have more time and the time will never be JUST RIGHT. If you always wait for perfect timing, you’ll never get anything done.

Feel Your Beauty

Feel Your Beauty

“Every time you respect and release your emotions know you are healing a part of you. Never apologize for your tears. Crying is the only way your eyes speak when your mouth can’t explain. Your tears are cleansing your soul in order to move forward. All these feelings need to be felt. I see it as a sign that I am very in touch with my innermost self, my heart and soul. I’m not afraid of my emotions, unlike many that are. Suppressing tears & emotions increases stress levels, contributes to disease such as high blood pressure, heart problems and ulcers. So have yourself a good healthy cry if needed. Release and let go so you can get back to smiling. You were given a heart by your Creator to share healthy love. Be healthy body mind and soul” – Karen Ficarelli
