If that doesn’t entice you, may we suggest…

The Les Mills Yoga MBX Mat™

The brand’s high-density eco-PVC yoga mat provides supportive cushioning yet delivers a firm grip to avoid sinking and sliding.   This was designed in the first place so that during poses you can focus on staying calm and centered. Apart from other mats, the high-density eco-PVC also stops indents and surface compression from forming. Secondly, the anti-slip coating keeps you anchored even during intense sweat sessions. As a matter of fact, the mat features a semi-closed cell surface for hygiene performance and cleans easily with water and a few drops of mild dish soap.  Retail price $79.00

Available for purchase online at Les Mills.
Happy International Yoga Day, everyone!

Cheers!

Drew Manning’s Weight Loss and Fitness Journey

Losing Weight at 40 is Hard, But Not Impossible

You may recall Dunn Pellier Media’s fitness client, Drew Manning, from Fit2Fat2Forty. In anticipation of his 40th birthday, he set out to gain weight over 4 months to prove to himself and to his clients that you can get fit after 40!

Drew is well on his way to proving his point, bringing his fitness followers and followers on Instagram along for the ride. In the weight gain part of his plan, he showed four diets – vegan, paleo, keto, etc. – and demonstrated all of them in an unhealthy way.  He also dropped all of his fitness routines.  He wanted people to see how not to do these diets in order to gain weight.

In his “back to fit” portion of the plan, he is showing everyone these same four diets but this time following them the right way.  And he has added back his fitness routines and the motivational part to keep everyone moving!  He was able to demonstrate that when done correctly, you can get fit no matter your dietary preferences – with a few tweaks, of course.

Drew is presently 28 weeks into this 8-month journey. Let’s see how he’s doing!

Meet Your New Favorite App: Ladder Teams

Austin Texas always seems to be churning up something amazing for all the be had. It’s like it own little silicone valley. Stuff that comes out of there is just…well…amazing.

On August 10th, another surefire company sailed into existence and is guaranteed to disrupt the on-demand fitness industry, taking it to new heights. It’s called Ladder Teams, and it’s about to change the way you workout. Forever. But don’t take our word for it:

“People want more than just a good workout,” says Ladder CEO Greg Stewart. “They are looking for expert guidance, motivational support, personalization, and they expect a world-class, tech-driven experience. This is exactly what we are delivering with Ladder Teams. The app‘s unique training programs, easy ‘press-and-play’ workouts, and our star-studded roster of elite coaches really set us apart. However, we are most proud of the supportive communities we’ve been able to foster; especially during this ongoing pandemic when almost everyone is craving social support and human connection.”
Best described as the “Slack of Fitness” for its emphasis on community and team engagement,  Ladder Teams is poised to lead the movement of hyper-connected fitness training.

The easy-to-navigate app offers access to weekly structured workouts ranging from former senior Peloton instructor Jennifer Jacob’s functional full-body “J Method” program, and Lauren Kanski’s and Meghan Hayden’s “Body & Bell” kettlebell-focused strength and cardio training, to Sam Tooley’s “Project Alpha” which advances members of all levels on their running speed, strength, and endurance. Other programs include pre/post-natal-friendly workouts for busy moms, flexibility and strength-building routines, and HIIT programs. The app‘s globally-recognized coaches also include Ebenezer Samuel of Men’s Health, former Barre and Barry’s Bootcamp instructor Taylor Walker, Men’s Health “Fittest Trainer” and Crossfit expert Andre Crews, NYC fitness entrepreneur Miriam Fried, and former MTV reality TV personality and fitness pro Kenny Santucci.

Members can chat one-on-one with their coach, or connect via their team group chat for unparalleled comradery, motivation, and accountability. The app even comes complete with a member-exclusive “Ladder Shop” feature where users can purchase fitness equipment and accessories recommended by their trainers for their specific program.

If you’re feeling inspired, try out Ladder Teams for yourself. Your first week is on them. To sign up or to get more information, visit https://teams.joinladder.com/
