All Right!  You got last week off to stuff yourself with turkey and all the fixin's as well as save some energy for shopping and maybe a little merry making at your favorite party spot.  But!  When that alarm went off Monday morning, it was back to business as usual for the next few weeks and it's time to make sure you are doing all you can to stay in shape for the next big round of holiday fun!!  That's why Becky is here and ready to go with episode 124 of Fit and Healthy with Becky on the Muskegon Channel! 

This week, simplicity is once again the idea.  A medicine ball, a mat....or just the floor will do.  It's a practice in some balance and technique as well as some moves you might not expect that can have an impact, but...being a Certified Personal Trainer like Becky is, she knows even where the littlest of muscles hide and she finds a way to make all of them do their part!

As always, consult a Dr. before you start this or any other work out program.  Warm up, stretch out and drink plenty of water!  Here comes episode 124 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on The Muskegon Channel! 

 

It's the final stretch of 2019!  You've worked so very hard to be a part of Fit and Healthy with Becky and we can't thank you enough!!  Becky is so passionate about making the lives of others better by her work!  It all adds to the over all well being of you...your family and our community as a whole!!  Are you looking for a last minute Christmas gift idea?  Take a look at the photo below!  Becky is offering healthy cooking classes at Kitchen 242 and the next one is January 19th.  You take what you make and it's an easy and affordable way to have some healthy meals ready to go for your busy schedule!!  Give her a call and get in on the fun while you can!

We move from a bench and a couple of dumbbells to a stability ball and a dumbbell or two for this weeks work out with Becky from The Gym in North Muskegon!  Every week, Becky works to bring you new and fun options to help you keep interested in working out and getting the most out of what you're doing with limited cost to get you started.  It's a commitment to get going, it's an even bigger commitment to stay on track so to keep up on the adventure as well as limit the expense....you see quickly what she's up to.

As always, consult a physician before you start this or any workout program.  Remember to warm up, stretch out and drink plenty of water!  

Here comes episode 123 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on the Muskegon Channel!

 

Boom!  Being a Certified Personal Trainer, is going to push you for more!  Here's a link to her website so if you're inspired by what you've done here today, you can contact her to learn more about some of the group settings she offers or maybe one on one personal fitness opportunities!

A healthy balance can mean a lot of things.  For this episode of Fit and Healthy With Becky however, it's not about balanced diet, lifestyle or direction.  It's all about making sure your balance is good and you are strong enough down the core to not fall over!  Balance!

I met with Montague resident, realtor and business owner, Rhonda Brewer last week.  This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and October 13 was Metastatic Breast Cancer Day.  
 
Rhonda was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer two years ago, and since then has joined the ranks of activists doing the major lifting to raise metastatic breast cancer to a higher priority.  Metastatic breast cancer has no cure and kills 116 people every day.  Metastatic breast cancer is cancer that has spread from the breast and lymph nodes to the bones, liver, brain, and/or lungs.  Once diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, remission is not possible, and treatment is continuous.  The life expectancy for metastatic breast cancer patients is three to five years and many get the diagnosis before they are fifty years old.
Breast cancer is the number one cause of death for women under the age of 50. One in eight women will develop breast cancer, the second leading cause of death for women in the U.S. Very little, about two to five percent of funds raised for breast cancer, goes to research on metastatic breast cancer.
 
Understandably, Rhonda and others with metastatic breast cancer are not always fans of the “Pinktober” paraphernalia.  In fact, it can be off-putting to many of them, as they know they will be in treatment the rest of their lives. They are dealing with a terminal illness, symptoms of the disease, medication side effects, emotional issues, financial strain and regular life stressors. The way Pinktober is sometimes promoted can cast a “playful” pink demeanor over this disease.

But there is some good news. Organizations such as Komen, which traditionally have provided little funds to research (19% in 2017/2018) are now agreeing to make it a higher priority, as of this month. And there are several organizations that only support research for metastatic breast cancer, such as Metavivor, which donates 100% to metastatic breast cancer research. Many White Lake area folks are familiar with Lara Plewka MacGregor, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at 30 and metastatic breast cancer seven years later. She started an initiative, Hope Scarves, to provide colorful scarves and support to women going through cancer. Hope Scarves has a separate fund for metastatic research. These donations are matched 1:1 by a private donor, with all monies going to research.
 
Another important step forward is the HR 2178 Metastatic Breast Cancer Access to Care Act Bill at the Congressional level. This bill would make it faster and easier for those with metastatic breast cancer to get disability and Medicare. Please reach out to your representative about supporting this bill that would allow these women and men to skip typical waiting periods they just don’t have time for.
 
 
So far, most of the leg work for metastatic breast cancer are the people living with this disease. It is well past time for us to step up and help.

We're giving you a week with no requirements other than a mat.  Don't have a mat?  well, good news there too.  You don't even need that.  It's never about the implements.  It's about the desire to give yourself a little better attention and care.  It takes a first step and that's what we strive for here with Fit and Healthy With Becky on the Muskegon Channel.  Short samples of different techniques to get you started, keep you coming back and maybe get you on to the next level.

This week, it's all about using the goods you already have.  No barbells. No need for any stretchy bands or straps on the wall!  Let's get to it!  It's episode 120 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on the Muskegon Channel.

She's back, it's Monday and it's time for another round of Fit and Healthy with Becky on the Muskegon Channel!!  Becky is all about the kettle bell this episode.  It's a device that looks like it might belong in the Olympics getting thrown by some burly man, but the reality is that it's a pretty practical implement that can be used by yourself and unless dropped on your foot, should be fairly safe.

Becky is a Certified Personal Trainer and available for one on one or group settings.  If you'd like to take your workout to the next level, get a hold of Becky!  You can find her website linked in the photo at the bottom of the page.

It's time to step it up a little.  Becky generally offers an exercise program targeted at beginner to mid level, but this week...we're kicking it up a notch.  It's a little more of an advanced work out so if you're new to the game, take your time with what you'll see and go at your own pace.  If however you've been chugging right along with the other 116 episodes of Fit and Healthy With Becky on the Muskegon Channel, it's time to step on the gas!

It's a seasonal favorite of Becky's.  Yes, it's time for bow season to open and in as much as Becky is absolutely awesome at making sure you are Fit and Healthy....she's also pretty good at filling up a freezer with venison once hunting season gets here.  In fact, when Becky's commitments to clients are complete from the end of September till deer season is done...she's on her way to a tree stand with her camouflage on and war paint on her face.  She LOVES the outdoors and everything about it!

Episode 116 is all about fitness through hunting.  What are some of the proper ways to work those arms and legs?  How to keep the stamina up to get out to the tree stand and if good fortune comes your way, how do you get that deer out of the woods?  She makes it all fun and adventurous in this weeks episode...and might let a little of her own excitement bubble over for the new season.

As always, consult a physician before you start this or any other exercise program.  Drink plenty of water, warm up...stretch and let's roll!  It's episode 116 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on The Muskegon Channel.
