Sure, it’s tempting to just put on a big sunhat, find a spot in the shade, and lounge all day, but hey, the summer heat is really no good excuse for a sedentary life. In fact, it’s the perfect time to get outside – the days are longer, work is (mostly) a little less hectic, and weekends out of town are loaded with opportunity!
To create our fitness manifesto, we collected the training advice that is most emblematic, educational, and inspiring. These informational nuggets not only sum up what we believe real fitness is all about, but they also form the backbone of any effective fitness regimen.
These days it seems like everyone is wearing a health tracker like Oura or Fitbit to help motivate them to move more, sleep better and even meditate more. With all this newfound motivation and data available – do you still need ideas about how to make it happen?
One of the keys to having an efficient metabolism (which we all want, right!?), improving posture, and reducing pain and stress is by making sure your body is in correct alignment. So where do you begin to achieve proper body alignment? It all starts with fascia - also known as connective tissue.
Muscles. We all have them, and without them, we’d have a pretty tough time moving through the day. If you spend much of the week behind a desk and commuting to an office, chances are, the answer is ‘no,’ even if you do manage to get a few workouts in during the week.
Good, tough, sweaty workouts are enriching, empowering, and if you want to achieve your physical peak, they’re also a must-do. But they’re not the be-all and end-all – and not everyone is built for, or has the time for, semi-pro levels of training.
