It's easy to fall into a negative routine and start feeling like everything is going wrong.
Your alarm didn't go off in the morning, your coffee spilled all over the kitchen counter, and traffic was terrible!
Self-love routines are important habits to staying healthy, energized, and happy. Here are 10 self-care routine ideas for the morning routine, noon, and night that you can start today that have the power to transform your day!
The first thing that your new morning routine should consist of is thinking about someone else.
When you wake up, don't focus on the tasks you need to complete for work and your personal life. Instead, think about a person who would like some affirmations, compassion, and love.
Start your day with the intention of what small action you'll take towards helping them.
It could be as simple as sending encouraging words through text messages or planning to stop and get flowers...
Jim and Sarah had been working out at the same gym for years. Jim was always reluctant to do dynamic stretching before and after his workout. He thought he didn't need it because Jim was thinner and, therefore, less prone to injury (or so he thought).
One day, Jim threw his back out from one of his intense workouts on the bench press machine. This injury kept him from being able to go to the gym for 3 months! He got fat and no longer hung out with Sarah. She, ironically enough, became really ripped from her post-workout stretching routine! She could finally focus all of her attention on her holistic health without having to worry about Jim getting hurt by not doing a dynamic warm up or cool-down.
This story is fictional, but it paints a picture. Stretching is vital to keeping your body healthy for the long term.
So let's talk about stretching, shall we? This topic often comes up in the fitness world because it is difficult to find someone like Jim who doesn't believe they need to...
As a fitness instructor, you know that running a successful business can be hard work. It requires long hours and commitment to see results, especially when you are starting.
You have probably been thinking about moving your business online for quite some time now, but the thought of it is overwhelming. You need to take care of so many things to create an effective online presence, such as social media management, email marketing campaigns, blogging, and more. The problem with this is that most people who start their businesses don't have any experience in digital marketing strategies. They end up spending way too much money on creating ineffective websites with poor messaging.
We created this blog post specifically for people like yourself who want to get started with digital marketing but feel overwhelmed by all the steps involved.
We're going to explore 10 different successful strategies for online marketing in the fitness industry!
Do you want to make more money? How about more time? More clients? Getting your fitness business online is the key to all of these things.
It's vital more than ever, to move to virtual fitness classes. Even though gyms are opening back up, your business is still vulnerable if you only teach in person.
Also, people now enjoy working out at home- a place they know well that provides convenience and comfort. It can make it very difficult to retain your clients in person and even more challenging to market to new clients.
Luckily for you, we've put together this guide that will help you create your own virtual online group fitness classes or private classes.
Don't worry; we will try and make this easy to understand and implement, so you spend more time teaching students than worrying about technical things.
The four key points we will discuss are:
1) Which platforms should you use?
2)What type of equipment do you need?
Have you lately been feeling stressed out? Negative news, global pandemics, and isolation haven't been easy on anyone.
To make matters worse, you probably feel like you are neglecting your health when you sit around. It's tough to feel motivated to work out when you feel like the weight of the world is resting on your shoulders.
Luckily, there's an often overlooked but very effective and easy way to take care of yourself from home. Tai Chi can quickly be learned with an instructor online or by following along with some videos.
Another fantastic benefit when you learn tai chi at home is you can participate either standing or seated. This is great for individuals in their golden years or those who have physical limitations.
As long as you can find 10 minutes out of your day to practice some Tai Chi, you will be on your way towards better health.
We all know that being healthy is essential, but making health and wellness a priority can be complex.

Do you want to operate at a peak level of wellness? The truth is, most fitness programs only get you halfway up the mountain. The idea of health-related fitness has been reduced down to just 5 components: Cardiovascular Endurance, Muscle Strength, Muscle Endurance, Flexibility, and Body Composition). These 5 components are essential pieces of fitness, but it isn't the whole picture. You can not ignore mental fitness and when you are on the journey towards a high level of wellness.
We need to start training our emotions as hard as we train our bodies. This is the only way for us to reach Total Wellness.
Total Wellness = Mental Fitness + Physical Fitness

It's no secret that the world is dealing with a physical and emotional health epidemic. Are you bombarded by messages telling you to "live your best life" or "hustlers don't sleep; they nap"? What does this even mean anyway, and how is it affecting our health?
Here's food for thought, your best life isn't "out there," but by how you manage what's "in there." (Point to your chest right now!)
Everyone has their own personal definition of what it means to live healthier. For some people, eating healthy means going vegan or gluten-free; for others, it might be cutting out sugar to lose weight or prevent diabetes. And then, some think living healthier is about looking good at all costs while avoiding the emotional component altogether.
The problem is, if you don't take care of your mind and body holistically, it will catch up to you. Understanding how a holistic approach to your health will positively impact all aspects of your total health-related fitness is vital.
