Philippines workout

It’s time for my summer break in cebu, Philippines. Its also time for some fun contest workout outside in the province, surrounded by coconut trees, carabao and rice fields. 

During the coming weeks, we ll workout using the nature around, from coconut to bamboo stick.

For this first video, we ll START with a contest with 5 différents EXERCISES: who ll drop the first one? Humana? 

WORKOUT: Self discipline or betting pool?  

You want to be great, TO pursue your goal and go for it with everything thing you have. You ll do it, not for someone else, but for you. You ll be obsessed to obtain that. 

The question is do you have the self discipline to reach that goal, to train constantly with the same passion and heart every day? 

You have to find that fire inside you, the center of your motivation. If you have self discipline, you ll create the strength that will push you through a great workout.  you ll trick your mind to create it in many différents ways, here are some that works:

Warrior mind: ‘my ennemy, my opponent, is ready, he s fully prepared, he s waiting for me, I have to push harder because we ll meet soon…’

Tricky mind: ‘It’s not a 100kg you have on this bar, its 80kg, and 80 is light for you, you ll make it, you ll make it!’

Goal oriented look good mind: ‘you want to be pump up in this new shirt? Flex, go for another round, push for it and you ll fit it nicely’

Goal oriented success mind: ‘its your purpose, its why you re here, train harder to reach it. Train harder than anyone else to reach this 0,1 spot that belong to the greats’

WHAT if self disciple isn’t enough on some days, isn’t enough for a special goal (loose or gain weight? Add a few kilos to a bar?), I suggest you test the betting pool. 

Find  5 friends and each put the same amount: 100 usd for example. 

It can be a bet of 4 of your friends that think you ll never reach your goal: if you do, you ll win 400, if you don’t, you ll loose a 100usd and they ll win 25. 

It can also be 4 of your friends with the exact same goal, the first one that ll reach it, will win everything.

It’s a great motivation tool, not because you can win money but mostly because you can loose it. You put something on the table and have to fight hard to keep it.

My fitness friend, set up your goals, don’t short change yourself, go for the highest possible goals and never give up. Enjoy the process, go for it with everything you have, WITH self discipline, With mind tricks, but most importantly with your heart.

Please enjoy and feel free to share.

Kids, Go Get some bruises outdoor!

Kids aren’t made of porcelain, they tend to be overprotected, especially in big cities.

Sure, they ll have fun playing call of duty on the PS4, but outdoor activities are necessary, and if they get bruises and blood along the way, so be it, it’s part of growing up. 

So go play urban soccer even if there is good chance you ll fall on the concrete, go skating or practice scooter in a skate park, you ll definitely get bruises and you ll love it! 

Have fun, fall, recharge and repeat!

kids NEED to experience, learn about risk, and more important they need to PLAY. 

Please enjoy, fell free to share;) 

Public speaking and fitness for kids: building confidence and a set of tools for life 

Today I auditioned for a role in a big budget movie (i ll tell You which one if I get the role;) ), i went for the fun of it but who knows…life is full of surprises.

 What it has to do with fitness gabrielfitnesskid?

 It s very much correlated. Langage and public speaking are essential life skills, the sooner you start the better. 

In a stressful situation, you can react 3 différents ways, its the FFF response: fight, freeze, flee. Why is public speaking one of the main fear and petrify some people? Because your body thinks it’s a threat and apply this FFF rule: you can freeze, flee or just master it.

I had zero stress at this casting and enjoyed it, which is the purpose of it. You ll have to master public speaking one way or the other, at school, with a group of friends, around people you might not know, in your profession… have fun practicing until you feel absolutely no stress: You can act, You can record YouTube video, You can sing and you ll nail it.

But the beauty of starting at a young age is that you might never feel any stress doing it. It starts as a game and before you realize, you ll focalise attention, show confidence, charisma and enjoy the process.

So my friends, here is my advise: Master your body this fitness, master your mind testing yourself repeatedly, and start young;) 

Please enjoy and feel free TO SHARE;)
