Hard to believe, but it’s been half a year since I launched livelybod.com and solarfri.ca.
Livelybod is my prototype of an online fitness business, built like an app through WordPress and Elementor. I am a classic example of biting off more than you can chew.
I am a fitness junkie. I like the gear; I like clothes, I like the environment. What’s weird is I was not a jock in my younger years. I wanted to be, but I was quite lazy when it came to physical activity. I had a slight (read: mega) preference for sitting on the couch reading a book. Or watching tv.
My main form of exercise was singing and dancing as though on stage with whoever was on the radio at the time. As I collected CDs (Hilary, The Offspring), I could practice singing the same song (yay). Unfortunately, I am not gifted with voice and all those years are regrettably not very useful time spent.
I have started to love taking photos and videos of myself working out. It is awesome for checking form and seeing progress. Livelybod is still up and running, so have a gander.
I have been really enjoying GymnasticBodies.com and like the idea of improving along with the callisthenics style programming. I want to get my fitness boot camp certification and schedule group exercise in the park.
Why do I like fitness? I like the personal challenge. Only I can make progress. Every bit of strength, mobility, speed, power, endurance, agility, balance, whatever – that’s all my work. I also think that our bodies are valuable and meant to move. I think I do a disservice to my body and will have a less mobile life because I love sitting so much. I really need to make sure I don’t get complacent and keep taking care of my only body.
There are so many ways to stay fit: weights, bodyweight, bands, running, gymnastics, track and field, sports, swimming, hiking, biking, dance, martial arts, classes, the list goes on. I don’t believe there isn’t something you could try and enjoy. I want to try BJJ just because there is so much chatter. Do you have fitness preferences? Have you tried BJJ? Do you switch it up?
