Welcome to episode 130 of Fit and Healthy Becky on the Muskegon Channel!  If you have been here for all 130 of Becky's shows or this is your first visit, the idea is simple.  Becky shows you some basic exercise practices and you can follow along anytime!  The work out's are quick, easy to do for anyone from beginner to advanced and available here on the website, or you can also see them on the Muskegon Channel if you have the free download for your Roku or Amazon Fire TV device!  Both are free in your channel store!

Hopefully, you enjoyed your week off.  It was an early break in the new year but Becky is back with a new work out to get you moving and remain motivated as the temps fall and we get locked into the doldrums of Winter.  Hey, what better way to pass the time than to work to be a better you with Becky showing you the way every week here on the Muskegon Channel?

It's a drag race to the finish!  We thought it best to take a moment to say thank you to the incredibly loyal audience that follows Becky week in and week out!  Her dedication to your fitness and your coming back week after week are a win/win for everyone! From Becky and all of us here at the Muskegon Channel....THANK YOU for your dedicated viewing! 

You survived the 12 Days of Christmas Workout last week, Becky waits all year to way lay you with that one.  This week it's going to be plenty chaotic enough so you'll want to maintain a workout but you'll also want to keep a few minutes to yourself.  After all, fit and healthy is so much more than defined arms and abs. 

Let's celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas with a work out designed by Becky with her less than benevolent side!  Brace yourselves for this one.

While often known for their picking on one another for any number of things, Andy O'Riley and and Bob Scolnick have formed a pretty unique friendship in Muskegon, because Muskegon, is one of the places on earth where a friendship like this can form.  

10?  12?  15?  Hey, take your pick but get your dumbbells out and let's get to it!  We're rounding 3rd in the bottom of the 9th as far as 2019 goes and there will be no letting up!!  Becky is all fired up and ready to help you out even though you might be thinking it's time to wind down.

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!

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!  

You'll need a barbell and some weights, you'll need a kettle bell and a step and you'll need to check with a Dr. before you start this or any other work out program.  You'll want to warm up, stretch out and drink lots of water, because here comes episode 117 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on the Muskegon Channel. 

 

Now, it's in to cool down mode!  Come back later and do it again!!  A healthy and happy you is what this is all about!  Need a little more focus?  Becky is taking on new clients for one on one or group training!  You can get in touch with her through her website and she'll customize a program for you no matter where you are in your fitness journey.  Click on the pic below and get in touch with Becky and watch your investment in yourself payoff!
