Fitness with a Twist

Stay tuned for some great fitness tips, including improvising when you’re on the go, on vacation, or when you just need a break from the gym and want to try something different. Of course, I’ll still show you how to get value out of that gym membership you bought in January and rarely use.

I’ll be combining my background as a Professional Athlete and Qualified Personal Trainer to bring you a lot of cool stuff you may not have seen or tried before.

Don’t be put off by the occasional infusion of humor either. Just because I don’t take myself too seriously,  the opposite applies when it comes to your health and fitness, and I actually know what I’m talking about!

Come Fly with Us

To be adventurous is to be young at heart.  Traveling, particularly abroad, is quite often the best education one can receive. It opens our eyes, our hearts, and contributes to our growth.

Here on the YOG blog, we’ll be busting our guts to keep traveling and growing and take you along for the ride with us.

But adventure doesn’t just require boarding a big metal bird. We’ll also be searching for adventure on our very own doorstep. And in a city like Los Angeles, that shouldn’t be too hard…

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

This is definitely one of our favorite YOGumentaries, demonstrating health transformations of epic proportions, using the simple concept of juicing fruit and veg.

The film follows Aussie banker Joe Cross as he travels across America on a 60 day juice fast, in an effort to regain his own health, while educating others on the benefits of juicing.

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead CoverThe weight loss results and other health benefits featured in this documentary are quite astonishing. We of the YOG blog are huge advocates of juicing and you’ll see plenty more on the topic, including reviews of the best Juicers out there in future posts.

 

 

The Four Agreements

The best selling book by Don Miguel Ruiz is somewhat of a YOG bible for us. Ruiz basically gives four principles to practice in order to create love and happiness in our life.  Actually living by these agreements can be extremely challenging, but if practiced daily can be life changing.

The Four Agreements are:

1. Be impeccable with your word.

In other words, say what you mean and mean what you say. Never use your word against yourself or others (gossip).

2. Don’t take anything personally.

Try to remember that what others say and do has nothing to do with you, but rather a projection of their own reality. When you become immune to the opinions and actions of others, the needless suffering will cease.

The Four Agreements

3. Don’t make assumptions.

You’ll be surprised at how often we assume. Try to always communicate clearly with others to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. When in doubt,  ask questions in order to receive the facts.

4. Always do your best.

Obviously your best will change depending on your capabilities, such as when you are healthy versus sick. But if you always do your best, you will avoid judgement and abuse from the most important judge – YOU!

So if you haven’t already done so, BUY this book now and keep it handy for constant reference to either gain or maintain your YOGness.
