"To handle yourself, use your head. To handle others, use your heart." - Eleanor Roosevelt
It's no secret. Health and fitness are important practices to follow if you want to live a quality life. But sometimes taking charge of your health and fitness can be overwhelming. Especially if you don’t know what to do or where to start. Now, you can begin improving yours with this secret 12 minute full body workout created just for us by Charlotte Mooney, aka "The Trainer for Life."
I, personally, took ownership of my health and fitness three years ago thanks to the exposure of the Southern California lifestyle. While I was living in Malibu, I was immersed in an entirely different culture that clearly ranked health and fitness very high. At least half the people walking around town are dressed in athletic wear and visibly working out several days a week. There are tons of outdoor activities, healthy snacks and beverages around every corner, and organic farmers selling their fresh produce at the weekly farmers’ market. All these elements of the better life pushed me to reevaluate the "ordinary" lifestyle choices I was familiar with at the time. I quickly made the conscious effort to be a better me, to take control of my life and make my health and fitness a priority. I met Charlotte when I was out there, and she really helped me find the right kind of motivation to keep me going. Together we enjoyed fitness classes and Shakeology. The choices I made three years ago changed everything for me – the way I looked at food, the way I understood what my body needed. And to this day, I continue to aim for better; for extraordinary.
Charlotte's secret 12 minute full body workout is just what you need to take charge of your health and fitness. I gave it a go and so can you!
