Even though it seems as if Christmas decorating began before Halloween, the Christmas Season has officially arrived, with Thanksgiving now being past. I love everything Christmas from the parties, sweaters, decorations, Samantha’s Core Plan friendly baking, receiving gifts, and gift-giving. Take advantage of the season of giving by receiving a present that will enhance your health, fitness, and your degree of optimization.
- Rep Kettlebells
If you were to place me on an island with only one piece of fitness equipment, it would be a 53-pound kettlebell. The kettlebell is a dynamic piece of equipment. The foundation of kettlebell training is the swing; this ballistic movement enhances muscle power, endurance, aerobic capacity, and anaerobic capacity. For this reason, I begin every day with 50 kettlebell swings. https://www.repfitness.com/rep-kettlebells
- Activewear from Tasc Performance
The most common activewear is made from synthetic plastic materials that are absorbed by the skin. The absorption of these materials disrupts the endocrine system and hormone regulation. This can all be avoided by purchasing toxin-free clothing. I particularly like Tasc Performance because their clothing is made from Bamboo and Merino wool, so it is thermoregulatory in any climate.
- Brute Force Sandbag
My second favorite piece of home gym equipment is the sandbag. The sandbag is very versatile and can be used to enhance strength with high time under tension exercises or be used for metabolic conditioning. The weight can easily be added or removed so that any movement is possible.
- Muse Brain Sensing Headband
Health is an electrical event that is orchestrated within the brain. Daily life causes much stress and creates disorganization in the brain, which leads to a poor mind-body connection. You can enhance your mind’s ability to adapt and manage stress through meditation. Many people state that meditation is hard, and they either fall asleep or cannot stop thinking. The Muse headband turns meditation into a game by sensing your brain wave patterns and providing feedback on how you perform. If you are calm, you hear birds and mild weather, and if your mind is active, you will listen to rain and wind. This has helped enhance my meditation practice.
- The Five Minute Journal
The practice of gratitude changes your brain hardwiring for the promotion of health and confidence. For this reason, I start every morning with gratitude. This routine will change your life.
