If you ask anyone that knows me fairly well, you’ll hear that I’m probably a workaholic.

But over the past couple years I’ve made it a priority to control my time better.

Especially since having kids (I don’t want to miss them growing up!) I’ve made it a priority to work hard, but also a priority to play harder with them.

I’m not perfect but I can tell you one thing (and my wife will confirm this)... I’m getting better every day at controlling my time and making the important things in my life happen.

We all have the same number of seconds in the day... Don’t waste them.

Work hard. But play harder! 👊🏼 #marketing #digitalmarketing #leadgeneration #leads #retention #followup #hwpo #10x #sales #teamangles #fitness #gymowner #studio #crossfit #boxing #9round #personaltraining #f45 #titleboxing #thebarrecode #ilovekickboxing #orangetheory #retrofitness #divadance #curves #cyclebar #anytimefitness #fitbodybootcamp #burnbootcamp

What is functional training? 
Essentially, functional training improves the performance of everyday movements and the quality of your life.

Improves balance and coordination ✅

Engaging multiple muscle groups in one movement or exercise giving you the best overall results in body composition ✅

By mimicking everyday life movement patterns, your body is more likely able to cope with daily stresses. ✅

Strengthening the body to perform better movements that can be adapted in the real world ✅

To learn more, please come to our 8 Week Challenge Information session @f45mardaloop Wed, Jan 22 @ 7:15!

Day 2 down 🤣 so we started out at Massey gym, did a couple of sessions there, however tomorrow we are heading into @f45_training_palmerstonnorth and I'm super excited, yes il be dying all over but excited. After having the twins my training has been all over the place & with my operation coming up, I put my training on hold, which was the wrong decision as the longer iv left it, the harder it's becoming. I'm also missing the community side of training, I really miss the family @crossfitcarv & if we were back in the GC that is exactly where I'd be 💖 The travel is a bit of a pain as it will be a couple of trips to town daily but hey let's see how it goes, kinda need some adult time too 🤣 don't get me wrong, I love being with my babes 24/7 365 days of the year 😜 but damn this Mama needs some quality training time 💪 #letsdothis #f45 #palmerstonnorth #getafterit #itsgunnahurt #trainhard #reaptherewards #nutrition #functionaltraining #functionalfitness #exercise #exercisemotivation #goals #lezzzzzgo 💪

Hydration.. I know, sexy topic.

But, absolutely something that plays a pretty big part in your health, how you feel and potentially your performance.

Being dehydrated comes with a host of side effects (and it is much easier to become dehydrated than you probably think, if you’re thirsty, you’re probably already dehydrated). A feeling of lethargy, tiredness, headaches, light headed ness, dizziness, drop in cognitive function, dry mouth, lips and eyes are all symptoms of dehydration.

Fortunately, water isn’t the only way to hydrate, keep in mind your food can often contain a significant amount of water and have a net hydration effect.

Also, performance can be impaired as a result of being dehydrated (as little as 2%) now while ensuring being hydrated throughout exercise probably isn’t super important, making sure you’re hydrated before exercise is far more important to ensure optimal performance.

The most practical way of measuring whether you’re hydrated or not is through your urine and how it stacks up against the chart in my post. You want to aim to stay between 1-3 throughout the day. Obviously if you consume a lot of beetroot or have a multivitamin this can impact it.

Practical guidelines are pretty simple
- carry a water bottle with you at all times
- if you don’t like water, then opt for palatable drinks; Powerade zero, BCAAs mixes, milk
- maintain clear urine colour
- start exercise well hydrated, drink to thirst during exercise
- don’t forget about water content in foods (salads, vegetables, fruit, stews, soups etc) 
This obviously simplifies hydration as a topic, but provides a decent overview and guidelines to implement.
