Fitness Friday: Our Exercise Ethos

By Friday, September 9, 2016

Our exercise ethos is simple: we strive for movement EVERYDAY. That does not mean we are busting our balls seven days a week. When we move, we feel better. When our kids move, they behave better.

Last weekend Meg rolled her ankle playing tennis with Billie. Her inability to workout this past week turned her into what can only be described as, a moody asshole. Moving is integral and does more than shape your body. It calms and clears the mind. The ability to shake the bad vibes and rid ourselves of frustration is why our addiction to fitness is so strong.

We are very flexible about when or where we exercise. This is probably the most important ingredient to incorporating fitness on the daily. A workout does not have to be sixty minutes; you don’t have to go to a gym, or feel like you’re going to die. The quality of your workout comes through the connection you make with your body, and hopefully you get a sweat on.

This weekend, grab a pair of running shoes, hit the sidewalk and move. Start with a five minute brisk walk, followed by twenty minute interval training of 1 min – running/1 min – walking. You can bring your kids, dog, whomever. The only problem with this workout? There is NO EXCUSE not to do it.

Speaking of excuses, sometimes a good pump session isn’t about the weights but about your headspace. If you are someone who spends a lot of time mentally in the gutter, you need to cut that shit out. Replace your negatives with as many positives as you can. Every once and a while recite some positive mantras to keep yourself in the zone.

Incase you needed one more reason to workout, we are exceptionally pumped about these new findings: Exercise undoes the harm of drinking.

Have a great weekend. Go sweat it up.
