FFD Workout: The Pilates Core Challenge!

by Sean Croxton, Brett Klika, and Chris Jarrell

Yo! Happy Friday to ya!

This week flew by! Can’t believe it’s Friday already.

Today’s workout is a burner.

Chris Jarrell, Pilates instructor at Fitness Quest 10, got medieval on us with this one. Get on the floor and try it out.

I like the slow, controlled approach that Pilates has when training the core. It really makes you feel the abdominals working.

Be sure to play close attention the cues. When performed properly, you get a lot more bang for your buck than typical abs training.

The 2-Minute (actually 5-Minute) Pilates Challenge!

Yo! What’s up, y’all!

Busy, busy day! I’m going to have to figure out a way to incorporate writing my e-book into my schedule. Been a little flustered the last two days trying to squeeze everything in.

I’ll figure it out!!

There may be a little less writing going on here for the next 3-4 weeks, but I’ll certainly be uploading videos for your viewing pleasure.

Today, Allyson the Assistant and I headed over to Fitness Quest 10 and shot some great Inspire Millions videos. We covered yoga, motivation, stretching, low back pain, and core. Today’s installment is a Pilates challenge that you can definitely do just about anywhere.

Yeah, it was supposed to be 2 minutes, but an extra 3 minutes will only make you stronger!

Check out the video below. Stephanie had my arms shaking and abs burning!

Once this blog gets 100 LIKEs or Facebook shares, I’ll post another challenge!

I’m going to spend some more time reading The Organic Manifesto tonight and possibly blog about it tomorrow. I figure if I’m going to teach you about Real Food, I should start by learning about Real Soil!

See you next time!!

The Inspire Millions Challenge!

by Brett Klika

Americans are no longer chubby, portly, or overweight.

We are corpulent, obese, and rotund. We don’t move like humans are supposed to move.

We don’t eat like humans are supposed to eat. We are not just merely dying from this plight, we are suffering.

What would happen to a Cheetah if we fed it Cheetos and made it sit idle? It would get sick, it would get depressed It would develop pain, and die.

Why? Because Cheetos are not what Cheetahs are supposed to eat, and sitting idle is not what cheetahs are supposed to do.

As cruel as the above treatment may seem to an animal, many Americans live, embrace, and defend their “right” to this scenario. After all, there is a robust, nearly unchallenged industrial machine to support it. Unchallenged, until now.

This is a call to action.

A much higher calling than sculpting a six-pack, toning thighs, selling gym memberships or slinging miracle supplements.

It’s a call for our society to lift each other up off the couch and move.

It is a call to educate each other to eat food instead of chemicals.

It is a call to INSPIRE MILLIONS to stop suffering and live like humans are designed to live.

You don’t have to be a personal trainer, life coach, or physician to grab a loved one’s hand and say “let’s go for a walk”. How do you know if you are walking fast and far enough? When someone no longer needs to pull you off the couch to go for a walk. You don’t have to be a dietician, nutritionist, or chef to select food that is actually “food” and not merely a chemically-induced taste. How do you know what “real food” is? The ingredients list should be the food itself. For meat, well, if you know what the animal’s name was prior to being on your plate, it’s probably safe to eat.

We don’t have to be hot, ripped, toned, shredded, sculpted, or beautiful. We need men, women, and children to get off the couch, stop eating poison, and get out of pain. Everyone can contribute. Do something today, right now to change the way you live or INSPIRE someone else to do the same. It may not happen overnight, it may take time. Person by person, household by household, city by city, state by state.

Working together, we can stand up and INSPIRE MILLIONS to be happy, healthy and pain free. After all, that’s how humans are supposed to live.
