I'm Back!!

Hello Fitness Motivation for Ordinary People Followers!!

Just a quick post to let you know that I am going to get back to posting on a more regular basis. I have been on a bit of a hiatus for the past few years due to an injury and other set backs. In January I started working with an online trainer and am now fully committed again. 

Even those of us "in the industry" get into a slump, mine was longer than I would have liked it to be. I can't go back and change the past, but I can change what I do today, so that's where my focus is. I'm down 17lbs from January 31st and would like to lose about 8 more. My bigger focus right now is building muscle though, not so much on the weight loss. 

I hope that you will join me in the journey and find something that motivates you to keep at (or get back to it)!!



Thanks for listening!

The Body Wrench Review



I received my body wrench last week and this thing is just awesome. I am so impressed, I may not need my massage therapist anymore, lol. Seriously though, the body wrench can be configured into many different forms to massage and target various areas. I used to use my foam roller for this but it pales in comparison to the body wrench. I found knots in my shoulders I didn't even know I had. If you are not familiar with the body wrench, I encourage you to watch a few of the short videos I posted at the end of this blog. They go through how to configure it as well as how to use it. For a limited time, you can use code FM20 at checkout and receive 20% off your purchase at www.bodywrenchtraining.com. Fitness Motivation for Ordinary people will also be doing a giveaway of the body wrench on Facebook so be on the lookout for that as well.

Here is some info from the Body Wrench Website on the product:
"The Body Wrench is the strength and fitness multi-tool. With this single, ingenious system you can warm-up, build muscle, speed post-workout recovery and, whenever you're in the mood, soothe aches and pains.
Body Wrench Muscle Optimization
Phase 1 – Prep
Rolling-out on The Wrench awakens and primes cold or quiet muscles to increase mobility and reduce the risk of injury during workouts and competitions. You'll lubricate muscles, tendons and joints, reduce joint stress and minimize both fatigue, swelling, and stiffness. Plus, it feels good! 
Phase 2 - Perform
Enjoy increased performance during your workouts and competitions. Also, take advantage of the Body Wrench's efficient & effective body weight training exercises. It's all about functional strength with Body Wrench!
Phase 3 – Recover
Shorten recovery time and reduce inflammation post workout/competition by quickly breaking up muscle adhesions (trigger points), while sending waves of fresh, oxygenated blood through every nook and cranny of stressed muscles with a set of targeted, sequenced roll-outs. It feels great and it quickly primes muscles to maximize the process of creating new, healthy muscle fiber"

Versa Gripps Review


I was so excited to receive 2 pairs of Versa Gripps for my husband and I to use. We've been using them for a few months now and absolutely love them. As a female, I definitely have limited grip strength and these enable me to lift heavier without straining my wrists. I also suffered from a broken wrist recently so they have also been a huge help in getting back in the full swing of my workouts faster. I absolutely love to use them when I'm working back. It's amazing how little strain I feel in my wrists when doing lat pull downs and dead lifts. If you use lifting straps or any other support product, I highly recommending giving versa gripps a try!

This self-supporting grip is the most effective way to increase strength, muscle mass and stamina by eliminating grip fatigue and enhancing muscle isolation. Ergonomically developed for any pulling or pushing workout, Versa Gripps replace gloves, hooks, and lifting straps.
