Reclaiming Your Body Confidence

There are very few things worse than constantly feeling unhappy or even ashamed of your body. I personally have very few friends who can say that they are 100% satisfied with their bodies. There is always something that needs to be changed. Something that needs to be trimmed. Something that needs to be added.

It’s not surprising that weight loss, diet and fitness industries are still growing rapidly today. However, what is the purpose of being in good shape? What is the real motivation for many people to achieve their peak form? Why are they willing to try any (even most insane) diet and workout regimen out there after their attempts have already failed several times?

The Actual Secrets to a Lean and Toned Body in 30 Minutes a Day (Part 2)

How much do you have to work out to get a lean and toned body?

A lot of people believe that living in a gym is the only way to get the body of their dreams. This myth becomes an excuse for many people not to work out (what’s the point in working out 10-20 minutes a day if it won’t bring any results?)

I found out that long workouts are not crucial to getting in good shape. Sometimes 30-minutes a day is everything you need to get that lean and toned body.

The Secrets to a Lean and Toned Body in 30 Minutes a Day (part 1)

>Do you want to look great? Are you ready to spend a few hours every day in a gym? I am pretty sure that you answered yes to the first question and rolled your eyes when I mentioned the second one. It’s a normal reaction and I am right there with you.

I must confess, I love to stay fit and healthy. It is one of my passions in life. At the same time I am just a normal person who has to work, take care of the family and likes to be lazy every once in a while (actually, at least once a week.) Now, is it possible for normal people like you and me to stay in good shape without sacrificing our lifestyles?

Did you ever think that your lifestyle needed some adjustments? Maybe you were thinking about quitting some bad habits. Maybe you thought about eating healthier. Maybe you thought about losing some weight or devoting more time to your loved ones. I know that I needed a lifestyle change a while back. While every one of us has certain challenges I think there is one are of life that we get robbed of as a society today.

Is Your Lifestyle Killing You? (plus an Offer You Do not Want to Miss)

How healthy and fit are you? Really, on a scale from 0 to 10 (0 being a complete couch potato and 10 being a Navy seal) where are you?

A few weeks ago my husband participated in a fun event called the Marine Corps Mud Run. When he signed up for it he didn’t know what he was getting into. I must say that my hubby is in pretty good shape – he runs and lifts weights most days of the week. When he started the race he thought that his fitness level was around 7, when he was finished he felt like a “3.” Why am I telling you this? First of all I want to take part in a Mud Run next year (the idea of running, getting over obstacles while covered in mud for a good cause has some masochistic appeal to me), but also it means that I have to work hard to get my fitness level up.

11 Tips for Safe and Successful Summer Workouts

Summer is the best time of the year for exercise. Whether you just love being active or whether you have to exercise in order to lose those few extra pounds that can’t be camouflaged by your summer clothes, summer is still the time to work out. (For me personally both of these reasons are true :-)) From my point of view the best part about summer activities is that there are a hundred of different things that you can do outdoors and the excuse “Oh, it’s too cold to be outside” simply does not work.
