What to look forward to in 2013
We are going step back and strip CultFit of all its distractions, gimmicks, promotions and more. The main objective is to leave you, our Dear Reader with a pure and simple reading experience. Reading and digesting the words presented to you without any distractions.
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
The “Workout” in 2013
Acquaint yourself with this lovely word:
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!!!
Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself-
The Quite Place <— If you don’t do anything else during your short visit here today? Take the time to click this link!!!
Allow us on this lovely and chilly Thursday morning to summarize what many of you are going to do over the next week:
YOU are going to put the very “things” you passionately adore and care about on hold. With the intent being to fulfill your wishes next year … Hmm the Dreaded New Years Resolution madness is beginning to run a muck here in the blog-o-sphere!
Do feel like you can handle the truth this morning?
The problem with this logic is that more often than not (like every damn year you do this), tomorrow never comes, the “resolution” you set never comes to fruition and the flickering flame of hope extinguishes. Most people set off soundly on the right foot thinking that they will eventually get to all the “things” they dreamed of doing. However, once the New Year rings in and you shake off your cheap champagne hangover … It’s March and the Lambs are roaring in. Many others, if they actually do hold true to their New Year plan, either find themselves either physically hurt, worn down or dead by June. Unable to do the very “things“ they wished upon all winter and dreamed of doing the rest of the year. Sadly, many fall into a deep, depressive “mood” in which they feel as if they had wasted all the wonderful opportunities they had planned on, like going out for an early run this morning. When you are full of Vitality, Passion, and Excitement.
*End of Part One*
Dim the lights (or go outside at dawn), light a candle and find Grace in your Salute to the Sun.
Hint: Grace will not normally be found at the “Box” … Just saying peeps.
This is YOUR life, not the fake one you live online, not your 9:30 am Power Yoga instructor’s life … YOUR life. Take control of Your destiny and ENJOY!!!
Technology is a way of organizing the universe so that man doesn’t have to experience it-
According to our critically acclaimed research department here at CultFit HQ: We are three days into January and already 98.4% of our dear albóndigas are over training. Who Knows, maybe it’s part of a grand scheme of some sorts or another.
The pic below may be useful to you, a guide more or less. For us it’s a placeholder and we are blaming it on our AADD. Last year our posts were in essence all over the place covering a wide range of topics on any given day.
Some like to say “potato”, some like to say “potato”…Others like “Random” and we like to throw a wrench into the works and say “Variation”. Our reasoning for doing this is actually quite simple. Research has shown that muscle groups adapt to a specific training stimulus in roughly three weeks and then plateau. Basically- Everything works for about a month. So understand this simple message today- You may be training for a marathon that takes place in July right at this very moment on the 3rd of January by running on a treadmill in a stale fitness center somewhere. Why?
Ease into the day as best you know how followed by:
One Hour Swimming as best as you can
Notes: A few readers asked about our annual year-end holiday blow out over the weekend. Needless to say it was a raging success and yes we have pics to prove it, ENJOY!!!
We don’t necessarily discriminate. We simply exclude certain types of people-
Cliche faces today. Oh, you may not know what that means around these parts. No big deal just take a gander around your world wherever you may be and you are certain to see it. Just a few examples to make certain we are on the same page: Best workouts of 2011, Top motivational tips for 2012. So as you can guess any best of, top of, year-end review blah is our topic of discussion today. Why? Seriously why have all these list to remind us of our fleeting life span? One of our missions here at CultFit HQ is to keep things simple, so here is the basic truth: The moment you were born you began to die! The New Year is simply not a reset button to do exactly the same thing you have done for X amount of years prior to that moment, You know…The moment you wake up on New Years day feeling like a train wreck!
Accepting who you are right at this very minute/moment is critical to our message today and pretty much every message we have tried to get across to you.
Not for time and certainly not for selfish reasons…
Walk/Light Run/Walk followed by:
A Labyrinth Walk (<–this is a link, say hello and click on it)
That’s it! Hmm maybe the hardest workouts are the ones where you don’t do anything? Na, can’t be…How would you ever put a program where you do nothing on a Year in Review Best of List?
So there you have it Random Fitness peeps! The CultFit HQ year in review and oh what a year it is. To recap our post: You are going to die someday. There you go nice and simple, ENJOY!!!
Preview of next weeks series of posts ah er next year-
Advice is like castor oil, easy enough to give but dreadful uneasy to take-
Deep breathe, center ourselves and a double dose of the proverbial chill pills this morning. All this fighting back against the Random Fitness world is really starting to create a brain drain here at CultFit HQ. We honestly have more questions now at the end of the year than we did at the start. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just feels like kicking a can down the road. If you haven’t noticed we have been withering down and narrowing our focus, message and tone the past few months. Trust us when we say this is a good thing!
So for the readers out there quietly lurking on the inter-webz that actually read and comprehend the words presented here daily, congrats to you! If you only stop by for the pics, the occasional X-Fit ape bashing, good for you as well. Basically at this current moment, if you get the message in this image? We are on the same page here and can more forward in a healthy way. If not, keep reading. One of these days it will sink in…
You can probably guess what we are going to write here, can’t you?
Time to go for a Swim…maybe for about an hour or so.
Notes: How are the goals coming along? It’s always nice to be first at something right? Let’s be honest today shale we? No beating around the bush or hidden messages. You ran your epic marathon this year in 5hr and 45mins only to placate your glowing self-worth and to make a check mark on your list of things to do in life. Now what? Well how about being the first to come up with a resolution for the New Year and decree to everyone at the office you took first place in this little made up competition. Face it, you wanted to win the marathon you entered although after 1500 people passed you before the starting line you knew it was over and packed it in. How about this for a resolution, take 7% off of your marathon run time from earlier this year? Hmm chew on that for today and most importantly, ENJOY!!!
