Hot Fitness Tip


Try to get out of the habit of excessive weighing, once a week should be the maximum. This might not seem easy when you have been used to obsessive weighing, so throw the scales out, or give them to a friend or put them in a hidden place. Whenever you are tempted to weigh yourself adopt distractive therapies like, a walk etc.

Words of Inspiration


Be Open and Flexible

Achievers are dreamers and DOERS. Take small steps towards your goal and you'll find that one step leads to another, then the next. Remember, "Rome wasn't built in a day."

There are many ways to skin a cat. If one road on the path to achieving your dream gets blocked, go round the back way.

If you get stuck on what to do, work on another path ahead ... and you'll get it through your creative imagination. It will just pop into your head from "outer space" (as Thomas Edison once described it). Be flexible in your thinking. Attitude determines your altitude.     

Success Quote


Its critical to have a positive environment of people around you who believe in your dreams and completive teammates so you can give back that support.

Mellisa Hollingsworth, Olympic bronze medalist and twice silver medalist in women's skeleton event.
