And what women's fitness camp would be complete without a girl power play list full of empowering songs for women as background music?
Here's my list so for this year's Camp GORGO. If you have suggestions, I'd love to hear!
Yoga has gone from a fringe activity--the pursuit of a few spiritually minded individuals--to a mainstream topic in fitness circles. Everyone from grandmas to Marines are now engaging in what used to be the purview of mystics, and that begs the question...is it still a sacred pursuit? Or just a great physical workout?
Cross-training has been promoted by an assortment of fitness professionals for years. Runners need strength, bodybuilders need flexibility...these were radical suggestions at one time, but now they’re generally accepted in training circles.
In the weight lifting world, failure is not only an option, it’s a good one. But if you don’t feel inclined to push yourself to the limit, there are other choices out there. If you’d like to maximize muscle growth and have the ability to engage in smaller, more frequent workouts, it’s a productive alternative.
Is filtering yourself beyond recognition really going to help your self esteem in the end? Or is it going to make it even more unlikely that you’re happy with what you see in the mirror, if you’re comparing it to what you’re looking at--along with your Facebook friends and Instagram followers--on your social media posts?
