FRI 12.6.13 Mental Strength

Mentally Strong People

By Coach Beka
Most of our focus in the CFM community, naturally, is about physical strength, goal setting, nutrition, sleep quality, etc.
When I came across this article, I realized we don’t hear as much about mental and emotional well-being. While many of us our great at goal setting, we have to have the components to go after those goals.
Would you consider yourself a mentally strong, confident person?
I LOVED the 13 tips this post discusses. Maybe it’s time to do some self evaluation and set your goals for 2014! I know I have a couple on this list that are a work in progress. 🙂

THURS 12.5.13 Homeostasis & Exercise

By | WOD | 6 Comments

Part 2: Homeostasis & exercise

by Instructor Training Program member Uran
In Part 2 of the Homeostasis blog series, we discussed the effect of diet on your body’s ability to regulate the metabolic condition. When your body fails to respond appropriately to your nutritional consumption, your metabolic systems shift out of balance, which can lead to all sorts of endocrine disorders. Today, we’re talking about something fun…
Something all of us in the CFM community share: a love of exercise.
Exercise, in all its forms, has a largely positive effect on the body. When you work out, you expend energy which sets off a series of reactions to try and maintain homeostasis. Your body knows it needs to get more oxygen to create new energy and sustain the increased activity level, and it does this in two ways.
First, your breathing rate increases to allow you to introduce oxygen to the bloodstream at a faster rate. Second, the increase of oxygen in the bloodstream prompts your heart to beat faster in order to deliver all that extra oxygen to your cells.
Why is this awesome?
By getting more oxygen into your lungs and then into your bloodstream, you exercise your heart, which in turn allows it to beat slower and with less effort. In the same way that repeated exercise in the gym relates to improved performance, repeated exercise for your heart causes it to work more efficiently and have more time to relax, thus lowering your blood pressure. So, come in, break a sweat, and feel even better about it than you already do.
And don’t forget that food and sleep are also major factors in helping your body maintain the stable condition it wants to be in. Help yourself out and give your body the tools to succeed.

FRI 11.29.13 Seasonal detox

By | Holiday Travel Workouts, WOD | No Comments

Indulge a little too much yesterday?

Many people are waking up this morning feeling a little puffy, groggy, achy, hungover, etc, etc…So here are some ideas to help you get out of the post-Thanksgiving funk:
1. Get back on track with a healthy breakfast!
2. Get moving – do our holiday travel WOD or get to the box for the noon class today. Or just go for a walk, do some yoga, play with your dog/family, etc.
3. Drink more water – hydrating will help flush toxins from your system and reenergize you. Ever seen a plant wilt when it needs watering… we need it too!\
4. Seasonal allergies? There are lots of natural remedies for seasonal allergies – try drinking the juice of one lemon mixed with warm water before bed & upon waking. Rinse your nasal passages with a neti-pot. And CUT OUT DAIRY (that’s the single biggest thing that eased my allergies and digestive problems. TRY IT!)
