Gloria's First Newsletter
Hello everyone! Welcome to my first Newsletter! I am honored to have you in my workout circle and delighted to share ideas with you! My mission is to bring simple, helpful information that will enhance your journey towards optimal health! Also, I hope to create a place where we can all keep in touch and share with one another!
It is said that if you want to know what you were doing in the past, look at your body now; if you want to know what will happen to you in the future, look at what your mind is doing now.
Dalai Lama Daily Wisdom
Working out and fitness encompasses so many different elements such as cardio, strength training, flexibility, balance and posture. Each is important individually but also contributes to the whole chain of movement and function necessary to navigate through our daily lives.
I hope I can provide information that will help you improve upon your weakest links and get more out of your workouts!
Let’s talk about attitude and energy!
From inhale up and exhale down it is most effective to be fully present and invigorated. Check your stance. Ears over shoulders, shoulders over hips, with a slight bend in your knees. Inhale deeply and as you exhale pull in your belly button just slightly. Use your breath to add a flow and connect to each exercise. You exhale as you lift weights and as you curl up working abs, inhale as you control down. Proper alignment and breathing are essential in building a strong foundation.
I welcome your comments and questions. Over the years I have added stretches and exercises to my classes from researching questions and also suggestions from my classmates!
