Take Your Fitness Regimen to The Next Level

The thing about fitness and working out is, the more often you do it, the better you get, and the better you get at working out, the fewer benefits you will get from doing o if you stay at the same level.

That is why you should always aim to push yourself when you are serious about staying as fit and healthy as possible, and with that in mind, let’s take a look at a few things you can do to take your fitness regimen to the next level:

Do it for longer

Adding more time to your workout is an easy way to take it to the next level. If you usually do a spin class for 30 minutes, then doing it for 45 minutes will be a greater challenge, burn more calories and give your body more to do than it previously had to, which will really help to step up your workout.

Go further

Similarly, going for a longer distance will help to switch things up and give your body more of a challenge than it is used to too. You find out what you are truly made of when you start running long distances instead of spriting, for example.

Add more weight

A third modification you could make is adding more weight to your workouts. If you have been lifting 100kg for months, then your body will be used to it, so adding even a few kgs more will pose a challenge and help to ensure that you are still building muscle if that is a goal of yours, for example.

Teach it

This isn’t for everyone, but there is no denying that if you want to step up your fitness regimen, then getting an online certification that will qualify you to teach it and then going out and doing just that is a great way to do more exercise at a higher level than before. It could also be an exciting new career opportunity for you.

Try a new class

Sometimes, doing something completely different than you are used to is the best way to step up your fitness regimen, If you have always been a runner, for example, you will have developed strong calf muscles. but you may not have developed much flexibility7, so doing yoga could help you with that, or if you have always lifted weights, you might have amazing muscle tone but a poor lung capacity, in which case taking up running could help to improve your fitness levels significantly. Don’t be afraid to switch things up from time to time to give your body a chance to work on different muscles and different skills. Your body will thank you when you get older and you're in great all-round shape.

There comes a time when you are going to want to take your fitness regime to the next level so you can continue to reap the rewards of physical exercise, and when that time comes, any of the above will help you to do just that.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
