The 50 States Fit Road Trip Finale

Image
We've made it to Hawaii! After 50 days on the road, our 50 States Fit Summer Road Trip has officially come to a close. We have had such a great time visiting all of the states in across the nation, participating in fit activities along the way. It's been amazing meeting new friends and reliving experiences that have shaped all of us into who we are today.

What was your favorite part of our road trip? Was it jump roping in Texas, meditating in Maine, or hiking through Washington? My favorite part of the road trip was getting to know our fit family members better and being inspired to make even more memories in this beautiful country of ours!

Although our road trip had to be virtual this summer, we have something to look forward to once travel resumes. Remember, having hope, dreaming of what the future holds and making the best of our current circumstances is the ticket to not only surviving this challenging time, but finding ways to thrive.If you need help with a solid fitness p…

Be Elefit Healthy Lifestyle Program

Image
They say hindsight is 20/20. That includes disease prevention and keeping ahead of your fitness before injury or illness prevents you from living the life of your dreams. I am so excited to kick off our best program for healthy lifestyle education to date. Gearing up for 2020 with a few weeks of preparation, and a Year of Change for 2020 for those who are serious about living life on purpose. I have been researching, creating, experimenting and tinkering with this little project of mine for the past few years. I have wrapped the lessons and lifestyle into a single phrase: Be Elefit.
There are 5 points we hit with my Be Elefit Healthy Lifestyle Program ⭐Exercise 1 hour per day in ways you enjoy so your heart, bones and muscles keep you moving and improving. ⭐Eat real food, preferably whole plant foods to reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. ⭐Rest until you're recovered, including learning how to reduce stress and sleep soundly so that your body has time to h…

πŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ’§April Hydration Challenge!πŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ’§

Image
They say April showersπŸ’¦ bring May flowers. So at Trunk Trainers the month of April is all about hydration! While it is possible to drink too much water (hypernatremia), for many people getting enough of life's essential element can be tough. Every person is different in how much water we need each day, and depending on your circumstances, each day can vary. Bottom line, try and drink enough so that your urine is clear, but you're not running to the restroom every hour on the hour. It's always a great idea to talk to your doctor or trainer to figure out your best amount, but 64 oz daily is a great target, with an extra 16 oz per each hour of vigorous exercise. For the month of April, try and get 64 oz in daily. When you do, put a sticker on our chart in the gym. We'll see what we can grow come May. You might find you have more energy, are less bloated, your digestion improves and you lose weight. πŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ’§Bottom's up!πŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ’§

20 Day Hibernation Challenge at Trunk Trainers

Image
For the last 20 days of winter we are focusing on the 3rd Pillar of our Be Elefit Healthy Lifestyle: Rest Until Recovered with our 20 Day Hibernation Challenge. The goal: Get 7.5-9 hours of sleep at night and rest until you feel recovered! You can train for Ironman and eat a perfect diet, but without down time your results will be limited and over training and burn out can derail your progress. While exactly how much recovery time you need varies, most human beings need between 7 and 9 hours of rest at night, as well as techniques to lower stress levels throughout the day. Join us for the next 20 days to develop a recovery plan that will leave you energized, refreshed, and ready to tackle your next big goal.

So...try and get 7.5-9 hours of sleep tonight! We'll be giving you tips along the way to guide you. It isn't always as easy as it seems. You might miss your bedtime, you might fall asleep but not stay asleep, you might have children or animals that wake you up...we'll …
