Hello New Year

Welcome New Year!
I think its safe to say at sometime in our lives We've all limited ourselves, missed opportunities, or let time slip by. But it's never too late to redeem ourselves.
2016 is the year of REDEMPTION!
This year lets make it about the finding the right state of mind, and igniting what triggers our motivation. Our number one priority is going to be hit the workout and give it all we've got.
While working away rep after rep or jump after jump or what ever that workout is bringing to the table..think about everything we want to achieve. Knowing that with each successful push, pull or lift that we are inching closer to what we want
This type of mind set  will be dedicated to anyone who's felt defeated. We've all been there before. Let's
let 2016 be the year that motivation runs high!!

Kettle Bell Benefits

The Kettle Bell has become a popular tool in the fitness world now because it will give you a kick butt workout that shreds fat and firms you up faster than anything else.
When you really take a look at it -It looks like a granny purse or a cannon ball with a handle!! It actually was used as counter weights for Russian Farm equipment. The farmers would throw it around as entertainment.
Its popularity spread throughout Russia soon they became a favored fitness tool. The Kettle Bell also became the country's national sport-they were used not just for power lifting and  Olympians, military and special forces began training with them.
Now we use them as another fitness tool in our gyms.Kettle Bells are used to perform explosive workouts that combine strength training , cardio and flexibility It's a whole body workout in a shorter amount of time than long, boring cardio or endless hours lifting weights.
Kettle bells are an odd shape so your body mass is off center-It requires an individual to use muscle that mimics real life situation.

Daily Reminders to keep life in Perspective

My Friend shared this Yesterday..I felt it needed to be passed on! A little  pick-me-up or even a reality check on a bad day!
5 Daily Reminders to Keep Life in Perspective
1. We all live under the same sky – The same things that make us all different unite us all. We’re individuals with unique histories, stories and strengths. Growing up, we need constant reminders that being different isn’t just okay, it’s necessary. It’s a part of life and it’s what makes us all special and offers purpose. As necessary as that advice is, we also need to know that we’re not all thatdifferent, at the same time. We’re on the same planet, under the same sky. We need the same things to survive. Thinking of this will help you lead a life of understanding. When you’re having trouble relating or finding empathy, this will come in handy. When you’re alone, it will connect you – you’ll remember that someone actually has felt how you do, even if you don’t know them. What a relief. :)
2. Knowledge really IS power – If you’re reading this post, whether or not you’ve had a formal education, you have the power to educate yourself. You have access to knowledge not previously available to the masses. This is the digital age, and it’s a time that truly reflects just how accurate the old adage “knowledge is power” really is. Knowing that you have the opportunity to keep learning and strengthening your mind is a GAMECHANGER. This means you can always find the answers you’re searching for, and it means you can help others find answers too. With all that is wrong with the world, I believe through knowledge we have the power to change.
3. Humans are meant to evolve – You can imagine how many times I’ve been told that I’ve changed over the years. I think the more appropriate observation is not that I’ve changed, but evolved. We’re not meant to stay the same all of our lives, no living creature is! Physically, mentally, emotionally – we evolve through experience. This is important to keep in mind not only when you think of how you’ve “changed”, but when you see change in others. This evolution definitely influences our personal relationships too, so it’s a good reminder when we notice ourselves drifting apart from people we used to be close with or becoming closer to people from different walks of life.
 4. The little things end up being the big things after all – Among all the big moments are an infinite amount of microscopic moments, many that are forgotten too quickly. Just because there’s a break in the action doesn’t mean that amazing things aren’t happening. Actually, those tiny experiences are what make the “big” things even possible. They give life more meaning than most realize.
5. Every day is a new opportunity – I know this sounds so cliché, but if you’ve ever pulled yourself out of a rough time, you know how valuable this can be. Each day brings new chances for positivity and happiness. If you’ve made a mistake, try again tomorrow. The opportunity is there – all you need now is the effort. Don’t get discouraged if it takes more time, either – like I said above, it’s all about the evolution.
