Great Health Now Fitness Summit

You may have seen my previous newsletter about the Great Health Now Fitness Summit. I have been invited to be one of 21 experts  for a complimentary online video summit, where we come together to share our strategies and tools for creating great health, feeling confident in your body, and putting fun back in your life. I think there will be great nuggets you can take from the summit and in addition to the videos, each presenter will have a free gift for you all.

Fun Stuff

This month, all of the DVRT Master Trainers have banded together to create #DVRTFlowFebruary on Instagram. If you own a sandbag you might want to try some of these flows.  Flows really represent what we ideally want to see in functional fitness.

Most everyday and sporting actions require an incredibly complex woven combination of many movement patterns at once, so these are a great addition to your workouts.
