Frogballs, Arkansas …

I workout.  I hit the gym …  Yesterday I did ankles-

The decision is yours.  Either you can look at the witty, avant-garde photos with a chuckle and a smile?  Or, if you like you are free to hang around as we strip back a few layers for your viewing pleasure?!?

Day one peeps clearly understand we give only a few shakes of the proverbial lamb’s tail when it comes to site stats and dreadful stuff like that.  It’s not what drives us or motivates us; Past, present or future!  However we have been seeing quite a few emails and messages of late asking:  What is up with this nonsense over here at CultFit HQ, bro or brah (if you hail from Eugene, OR)?”  From what we gather from our ongoing conversations with these fine folk is that peeps are really tiring of the Extreme, ELITE, Kranked and Cardio Barre Burn fitness fads (Ja Ja Ja).

These words will read as highbrow and superior.  Conveying tone in a blog-o-post can be arduous to say the least … We stand before you humble and laid bare.

One of the driving forces if not the only principle for CultFit is Karma Yoga.   Quite simply, Karma Yoga is the gentle practice of giving back to the communities of which you are a part.  CultFit has two parts:  What you see here before you and if you ever get up off your un-motivated butt?  Our offline, more intimate version.  In our most pure form we embrace Seva, selfless service.  Seva is an act of kindness and generosity that neither demands, nor expects, reciprocation.

Now this is where old Uncle Mo gets all pissy about the Money Grab and Look at Me ELITE individuals of the world (Those in the Know -Know whom we speak of) … Not today, we promise!

One of the great hall marks of our generation is that, more times than not we only take and not give back.  A friend recently defined the Law of Karma as to say: You get what you give.”  We implore you (along with us) to give back to those around you!  We are not talking about writing a post about your new shoes, heart rate monitor or What You Ate for Wednesday (Damn, that’s today … Oops!).  Hypothetically speaking it would be refreshing NOT to read and hear about peeps:  Volunteering at a local food kitchen, Donating time after work to mentor young kiddos, Helping an elderly neighbor …

If you would like to learn more about what we offer off of the inter-webz or if you would like to share ideas about giving back?  Contact us at:  cultfit@gmail.com

Now back to our regularly scheduled program:

Slowly we will purge the Justin Bieber’s of the musical world …

The Plan-

The Workout-

One example of giving back to your community:

The hover-moms thought a merry-go-round was way too dangerous?  Coconut water has never looked so glorious spilling from someones mouth as when they saw this apparatus above!!!

Not For Time …

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Thick Grip Barbell Curls and Perfect Push Ups (Feet up Peeps) Followed by:

Take the number of stops you make this morning going to work (Stop sign, street light etc) x 10 and this will determine how many Hard Style KB Swings you perform later tonight!

Notes:

So what does all this mean?  If from here on out, each and every time you open the “CultFit has published a new post” email on your precious iPad?  Think of this:  We as individuals may not get what we give.  Although in giving, we keep this whole darn world thing running.  Be well today and ENJOY!!!

  1. Well said. A few of the causes I help out with are http://girlsontherun.ca/ here in Toronto I am on the committee, I plan to run the 5K in October to raise fun for this cause. I have registered my sweet little pup to be a therapy dog and just waiting for them to come and meet her to see if she is suitable… hands down she will be, I figure why should I be the only one that gets to share in all her love. I sponsor a child, donate to Human Society and do the Breast Cancer walk each year… is that good Yoga Karma?

    I donate blood every 8 weeks. It doesn’t seem like a big deal until someone you know gets sick and needs 4 pints of your blood type. As a note, the red cross is running low on O positive, A negative, and B negative.

  3. Hi there. http://www.supportunicif.org is a wonderful cause for disadvantaged children. They help these young children in education, nutrition, and in the treatment and prevention of diseases such as hiv/aids,. They also contribute in crisis situations such as floods. You can either donate money, purchase something from their website, or give some of your time and attention to this very good cause. I contribute on a monthly basis.

      I’m cracking up here trying to write a comment back to you. 🙂
      The quote (from Daniel Tosh) ties into my message from the day before about listening. I’ll use the quote with a new runner or athlete I’m training to make sure they are engaged and listening … 9 times out of 10 it flies right over there heads, which I smack back into place gently.
      I have a whole list of elbow workouts, knee workouts, ankle workouts etc. 😉
      I’m pretty sure a good flowing ankle program would work on the old cankles!

  6. […] We have been at this blog-o-thing now for a little over two years, over this time we have met quite a few amazing peeps to say the least.  If you are new to CultFit, please read the work above, again, in a more personal way.  Allow the words to find meaning within you.  In essence, the splendid work by Christian D. Larson embodies everything we are here at CultFit. […]
