Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful-
What is THE WORST training tool we have available to use? Our eyes …
Our eyes mislead us while our best training tool and the one seldom used is our Mind.
The images our eyes capture play a large role in how we organize our perceptions. If you are capable of daydreaming at work?!? Then you can learn how to visualize and meditate.
Let’s start early this morning for good measure:
· A good way to start is to simply think about your home or apartment.
· Imagine that you are standing outside and looking at your front door.
· Describe your door in detail (aloud). What color is the door? What is the shape of the door handle? How high is the door? What does it sound like if you knock on it?
· The part of your mind that you are using to describe the door is the part we use for visualization.
· Now, imagine your door in a different color. First blue, then red, etc. Use your imagination and pretend if you need to. The more you can pretend the better your imagination will be.
Like many “things” in our lives, we forget as we age. Hand a thoughtful little dude a Matchbox car and watch what happens …
There are literally millions of yoga poses, trillions is actually more actuate of a number. Try this: Stand on one foot, hand on the hip of the leg firmly planting you to the ground, your other hand picking at your ear vigorously (keep picking until you find something). Let’s call this pose: CultFita Hasta Padangustasana
True, passionate yoga practice has Nothing to do with the poses.
So on that lovely note, today is a Rest Day. You are free to obsess over your killer pose … We will be going for a Walk and focusing/visualizing on proper breathing?!? <— Hint – Hint

What we feel is necessary for a simple, enjoyable reading experience:
- Pithy, socially relevant topics to help you come to peace with your body and mind
- No comments or “like” buttons to distract you from our message
- A pleasant and easily read format
- Minimal navigation, Minimal pics. Featured content for a “In and Out” experience
- A breath of fresh air amidst a sea of distractions

Slowly and surely we will be migrating content to our new site, so all hope is not lost! CultFit will still be here tomorrow, in all its dreadful glory. Thank you once again for making CultFit what it is! Be well this New Year and ENJOY!!!
Patience, n. — A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue-
People are cynical and honestly: Why wouldn’t they be? All of us are overworked, trampled on, paying more for yoga class and coconut water. Our dreams are slowly fading away and struggling to find meaning.
Dark clouds seemingly consume the conversations we have with friends and family. Is talking about Doom and Gloom useful? It some instances it can be, just not today.
Today we challenge you to find the courage to be optimistic!
Happy Hips, a little Balance Beam work and Skipping Rope (if you “jump rope”? Try again). Followed By:

It’s KB Swing Medley time peeps!
Left Hand, Right Hand, Double Hand, Single Bell (HEAVY), Side Step Swings
Hard Style! Roll your precious die carefully … The number it displays is the amount of Swings you will be performing!
True personal awaking and change happens thorough conversation, Dear Friends. Open up and comment below about anything in your life, purge these thoughts from you. The more Random the better … ENJOY!!!
Pleasant experiences make life delightful. Painful experiences lead to growth-
Being sincere and open with your feelings can make you feel vulnerable in the world we live in. When you finally open your heart? You do so with the uncertainly that other people will not treat your feelings with care and love.
Open up and let down your guard today and Risk being Sincere. Be Honest, Authentic and say what you Feel. Open your mind to creating loving interactions with those whose company you enjoy …
Remember the program for Yesterday? Neither do we so let’s start with a nice, flowing Pulsed Trail Run. Followed by:
5 Perfect Pull Ups
5 KB Bear Crawl (Heavy! Five steps)
10 Perfect Hinge Walk Out Push Ups (Hinge peeps, HINGE)
May your hearts be filled with hope and joy today …. ENJOY!!!
A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.
