Start by starting

Three years ago I had just been given my 6 week Post Operation clearance to start light yoga. I had never done yoga before, but I was desperate to get my life back. My cancer in my uterus had made me grow to look 6 months pregnant. I had put on 65 pounds. I was so unhappy too. I was ready to change my life. 

So I walked down to this local yoga studio I had walked by every day and decided to go in and give it a shot. My first class was an accidental level 2 vinyasa and I about died. But there was a girl in the front who stood on her head and it really intrigued me. So I went home and decided I would one day stand on my head like her. It only took a couple weeks of practice and I was inverting, but it wasn't pretty.

I knew I needed to get stronger and to shed the weight that #Cancer had put on my body. So I did. I committed to working out 30 minutes along with diving into my yoga practice.

I tell you this because SO MANY people come to me and say they "wish" they could get healthy. They "wish" they could do headstands on paddle boards, they "wish" they were strong like me.

EVERYONE has it in them, you just have to START and align yourself with like minded people that can HELP you. This journey is not something that should be done alone. Why? Because you are your worst enemy. If you don't have a posse in your corner speaking life into you and killing your excuses, you will fail over and over again. The ones who try to do it alone are usually the ones that are so used to quitting, they are scared to commit to a group because they KNOW they will be held accountable.

If you are READY to change your life and START...

On your MARK get set.....

Don't forget your markers!!!
The agility markers are a unique way to challenge yourself in the SHIFT SHOP. They help you develop agility and coordination as you navigate around them, reacting to color “callouts” from Chris. As you improve throughout the program, the markers can be spaced farther apart to add new levels of intensity—meaning that anyone can be appropriately challenged regardless of fitness level. • The Beachbody Agility Markers are included with every DVD pack and are available for purchase separately. A printable version is available for download with your Beachbody On Demand membership.

I am SO excited to announce I am now a part of the elite #GlideTribe with Glide SUP!

Some days you open your email and you get the BEST news. 

That is what happened to me a couple weeks ago when GLIDE contacted me and let me know they chose me as a new member of their ELITE tribe! 

I may have done a little dance. 


Because in my opinion, if you are going to get an SUP for yoga... Glide is the best. 

Why do I think that? Well here are my reasons.

#1 They are Made in the USA. Look I like to support my country when I can, just like I support my state, and city. Buying local keeps the economy booming. The vast majority of paddle board companies manufacture overseas, and even their employees have never seen a board made from start to finish... but not Glide. Every member of the Glide team has been to their factory and has hands on knowledge of how the boards are made and the process that is involved. I love to be a part of companies like that. 

#2 They are Ultra Durable. This matters. Boards and parts are not cheap. Glide’s patent-pending GSS coating, is a VOC free polymer that has been developed to create an extremely durable coating that withstands damage caused by rocks, debris, abuse, paddle strikes, and drops. Ultra durable Glide boards means less frequent purchases and less strain on your business or personal budget. Also longer board life means less boards filling up our landfills, or being dumped in the ocean. (Can you believe people do that?!?!).

#3 They are Eco-Friendly. No other American SUP company recycles their EPS scrap as efficiently as Glide. Also Glide refuses to use low cost, highly toxic Polyester resins, and have taken adherence to green manufacturing principles to an unprecedented level in SUP manufacturing. Glide is proud to use exclusively 100% non-toxic Entropy Bio resins, reducing potential harm to our employees, the environment, and over overall carbon footprint.

#4 They are BEAUTIFUL. The boards are just stunning and speak for themselves.  I have this Lotus Board... 

Isn't she beautiful? You can see their other designs here

So if you are like me and #ShopWithPurpose - meaning you want your $$ to go toward good, rather than continuing on with the blind big box ways.... then definitely check out GLIDE.
