What hunger is in relation to food, zest is in relation to life-
Time to spice things up a bit, just a little bit.
It’s amazing what you can discover when you take the time to listen to and awaken your senses …
Let’s start with a nice Dynamic Warm Up: Tumbling, High Knee Skipping, Cartwheels, Broad Jumps, Crawling. Followed by:
90-95% Max Effort Hill Sprints + 10 Perfect Hard Style KB Swings
200+ Swings today, sounds just about right.
Be curios today, be attentive to the fine details of “LIFE” around you. Bertrand Russell once remarked that the commonality amongst all happy people, was that they embraced “Zest for Life” … We agree.

Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know-
Of or relating to illness caused by medical examination or treatment.
First do no harm.
Some light Tumbling a handful of Cartwheels and sprinkle in 300 Hard Style KB Swings at the end for good measure.
A simple yet profoundly loaded message today. Feel like taking a stab at what it is?!? Be well today.

We have enough youth, how about a fountain of Smarts-
There really is no need to set up this video for you this morning … Its brilliant:
Where were we?!? Diversions!
More times than not it seems that we have forgotten all about the simple diversions in our lives that help us to decompress from our daily concerns. For many of our Dear Readers this moment of forgetfulness can be found in at the local gym, a yoga mom class or a trail run in a nearby park. This sacred refuge can also be found in our gardens where tilling soil can clear away the stress of a rough day. For many others chopping up some veggies in the kitchen sweeps away the frustrations of our nagging boss at work. We may also find relief chatting amongst friends one night down at the pub or out in the bright sunshine during a weekend morning walk with a close friend. This place may also reside on the inter-webz. Where we can roar with laughter at a silly pooch jumping on a trampoline.
Wherever this place is for you, peeps it is vitally important for us to go there regularly. The more you punish yourself Running, Training, Lifting, Dieting? The very people around you don’t get the best of you! It very well may be in these quiet diversions that we find peace … “Sh!t Son!!! Did you see that dog try to do a nose-stand!?!“
We were just finishing making a sandwich when you stopped over for a visit, how nice of you!
Happy Hips Warm Up followed by a nice 30 Minute Trail Run, and finishing with a Happy Hips Cool Down.
If you want to add some zing to your sammy? Just add, oh let’s say … 100 Hard Style KB Swings after the Trail Run.
Let these numbers marinate in the old noggin for a spell: 10k and 30 minutes. Go ahead and say these numbers out loud at your desk … 10k, 30 minutes!
You Got Smoked By a 13 Year Old Dude?!?
To be a kid again?!? We spend our whole entire adult lives trying to be young in body. How about young in heart and mind? Be well today and ENJOY!!!

To stray about and tire. To beg and feed oneself. To brag and act in conceit. To simper and fawn. To wilt and whine; to be furious; to be miserable: What is this living but a child’s antic!
Quick question to start this splendid Monday morning off on the right foot: Why do you insist that your workout should be so hard and uncomfortable? This post may be as personal as we ever get around here for one simple reason: There is an ethical brush fire surrounding the Fitness World and we are right in the middle of it. Uncle Francis recently coined the term…” The Random Fitness Placebo Effect.”
We are going to put faith in you dear reader that you are aware of the placebo effect and save you from explaining it here. That would be painful and nauseating…The faith we do not have in you is when this applies to your health and fitness program.
Answer these three simple questions after your next WAD or fire-breathing 5k program:
How does your current program enhance your current physical well-being? How much effort does your fitness program require from you? How many times during the last week did you perform said fitness program?
Expected benefit, Perceived effort, Adherence and Perceived benefit= The Random Fitness Placebo Effect (nice little definition if we must say so…). Basically and as simply as possible: The The Random Fitness Placebo Effect is a function of how hard YOU thought your fitness program was.
At least 300 peeps will email us here this week wanting something difficult and complicated to perform. Almost all of them will make the assumption that a challenging series of movements will do more for their overall outward appearance (That is what this is all about right? Gotta look hot in them yoga pants?) than a more simple less dynamic movement, or that a complicated program will do more for their body than just being mindful and present in oneself.
You will never get a Placebo Program here! Four peeps now why this is! There is a prevailing No-Pain-No-Gain mentality stirring up the winds to drive the flames further within the blog-0-sphere…You won’t find it here.
Thoroughly Warm Up into a think lather this morning and proceed with the following:
**Once you pick up your weight of choice it stays up**
25 KB Hard Style Swings
20 KB One Arm Perfect Presses (Each Arm)
20 Alternate/Pivot Goblet Squats
20 One Arm Bent Over KB Rows
Gently set the weight down and perform:
100m Sprint Out and Back
Rinse and Repeat…Oh, 5-10 times?
Just because you choose to engage in something that YOU perceive is hard, does not necessarily give you the perceived benefit YOU think it does?!? Be safe today and most importantly, ENJOY!!!

Less than fifteen percent of the people do any original thinking on any subject… The greatest torture in the world for most people is to think-
With New Years resolution season in full swing now, the vast and overwhelming amount of tips and motivational “pats on the back” can be daunting to anyone trying to get back into the swing of leading a healthy life.
For the blog-o-sphere types, Random Fitness apes and yoga moms telling YOU what to do, CultFit HQ inter-webz media relation guru Uncle Hayden has this reminder: Most people are visitors to the magical land of fitness, nutrition and healthy living; not full-time residents.
During this full on information blitz in particular, you are often exposed to a lot of information. Far too often we easily lose sight of what tasty tidbits of information/advice are most important and helpful to us.
This all gets back to you, the visitor here to CultFit HQ. This is much more of a tool than you may initially think. Check out some of the links to the side here–>
There here for a reason. Read the articles we present you with an open mind. Be mindful that you, you yourself are the best training tool and motivator you could ever need.
Ask yourself these questions today:
What are my goals for the coming days, week, month, year?
What changes do I want to see in my life?
What am I willing to change about myself to achieve my goals?
What will I add to my life? What will I let go of?
Similar to yesterday…
One Hour Swim or Bike followed by:
100-150 Perfect Swings
We honestly hope you get our message today, ENJOY!!!
