Tools and Books
My Favorite Fitness Tools to Challenge YOU and Inspirational Books to Keep You Growing.
Tools to Use At Home
Foam Roller – Love love love the foam roller. This will help you massage your muscles, stretch and it is awesome to add more challenge to certain exercises.
Tubing – You can do a lot with tubing at home, but I really like it to do some back exercises, especially rows, and fun with a buddy as well.
Gliding Discs – These add variety, fun and intensity to home workouts, especially for lunges, planks and push-ups. Pay attention if you buy some, there are sets for carpet and wood floors.
Tools For The Kids And Family
Tubing – Kids can use tubing. They just need to be taught to be safe with it, so it won’t snap back and hurt somebody.
Resistance Bands – These are affordable and safe to add resistance for kids at home. I really like these for arm, back and leg exercises.
Burlap Sacs – Old school field days were awesome. Have a sac race in your backyard with your buddies and have some fun!
Books For Relationships, Health, Growth, Creativity, Love And Life
Daring Greatly – Life-changing book. Brene’ Brown writes about vulnerability and the real deal of life and relationships. Good read when you are ready to deepen and strengthen important relationships in your life, and begin to truly love who you are. I have read this twice and plan to read it again one day.
The Gifts of Imperfection – Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You are. Another good read by Brene’ Brown. We all need this.
