MISOGI

by CLucas
2M ago
The idea behind the Japanese ritual called the MISOGI is about choosing a goal so big each year that it affects positive evolution the rest of the year. To get our habits to change, it takes a collective of thoughts, activations and inspirations. Some goals take time to ripen even though we can’t see the fruits of our hard work immediately. Achieving goals can be elusive sometimes. Whether it’s the lack of consistent dedication, not having the energy to persevere or some of us just don’t feel worthy of positive change to achieve what we truly desire. But the truth is, we all can make quantum s ..read more

GET OUTSIDE AND GET FIT!

At Nimble Fitness, in New York City, we always jump at the chance to get out and into nature, especially if that involves a new athletic challenge. Over the years, our staff have dug into surfing, snowboarding, hiking, ultramarathons, yoga retreats etc. It’s always good to both expand your horizons and get outside. When I got the call from my friend Todd to sign up for the Ride for Mental Health, an annual event in New Paltz, NY, my cycling experience was limited. I’d done a couple of spins around Prospect Park in Brooklyn and a few longer rides with Todd upstate. Besides riding my bike into ..read more

YOU ARE A YES!

YOU are a YES! You are inherently deserving of whatever it is you desire for yourself. The challenge for many of us is, from a very young age, we learn that we are a No. We are not smart enough, pretty enough or lovable enough and list goes on. We are told we are wrong or don’t fit into this world. This puts in to motion a life of building an identity based upon perceptions we believe that are ultimately false. Even worse, often they are based on other people’s false identities and opinions that they have adopted. Because these experiences are emotionally charged, they get lodged in our memory ..read more

The quality of our posture is a major concern and rightfully so. Our minds are always reading the nonverbal cues that people around us are presenting and posture can be an indicator of physical and internal energy. Our posture can help us look younger and more vibrant or older and fatigued. Poor posture can disrupt your digestion, stifle your breath function, and lead to structural damage that could have you permanently looking directly at the ground. Let’s break down understanding “posture” into a couple categories: mindset and physicality.  Why start with mindset? In Nimble Fitness, our ..read more

In his book, Strength to Strength, author Douglas Brooks writes that as we age,  it is the quality of our relationships, not money, career, or success that brings us the truest happiness. For many of us, there is an intrinsic, deeper knowledge that status and possessions only go so far; in fact, those things can often lead to feeling empty if there’s no one to share them with! The Covid- 19 pandemic had many far-reaching effects. For some, crisis brought them closer to loved ones, others grew apart. How we worked, traveled, and socialized all changed in an instant.&nbs ..read more

Fall is here, the seasons have changed and so can your workouts! It’s just brisk enough to be refreshing outside and it’s a perfect time to take your fitness routine outdoors. Here are some of our favorite tips for taking it outdoors! Stay Hydrated: Sometimes it’s easy to forget to drink water when you’re not overheated from the hot weather. Continue to drink more than enough water (about half your body weight in ounces), and make sure to get hydrated before your workout! Wear Layers: It may be a bit chilly when you first start that outdoor run, but your body will heat up quickly. You can remo ..read more

I have been thinking about longevity and living functional in our later years of life for a very long time now and I love how Peter Attia, MD. looks at this idea. Peter shares the idea of reverse engineering your last decade when he was a guest on Rich Rolls’ podcast. You can listen here. I love the idea of asking ourselves what type of health and function we desire in our last decade of life! Let’s say you’re planning on living between 90-100 years old. What do you want to be able to do in your last decade? Do you want to be able to pick up a child? Do you want to be able to go up three fligh ..read more
