Nick and Luke vs Mike and Katie The Ultimate Showdown
Mike was supposed to lead a normal (kick everyone’s booty) TTT workout today, but what started out with a basketball warm-up turned into the entire TTT session.
After a few rounds of knock- out with Luke and Mike fighting to the finish every time, the group decided it was time for a 2 v 2 game to prove who was really the better baller.
Team 1: Nick and Luke "The Youngstahs"
Team 2: Mike and Katie "The Old Geezers"
Nick and Luke took on Mike and Katie for three back to back basketball games. The games were intense, cut throat, and the score went back and forth, proving that both teams were quite talented (despite some player’s lack of experience, and others being out of the game for decades).
The Youngstahs won the first game 7-5, then The Old Geezers battled it out to win the second two games, declaring them the champions of the TTT Basketball League.
When we interviewed the game “MVP” Katie at the end of the game, all she had to say about the experience was, “I spent a lot of time confused, and on the ground.”
Katie’s teammate, Mike, reassured us that most players are hardest on themselves, and bragged to us that, “Katie got the game winning shots, both games. Although a lot of misses and fouls took place during the game, her amazing performance at the end was what mattered most. I really hope you guys got her winning shot on camera...I want to remember that moment.” (Yes, Mike, we did....here it is, folks)
Nick went under the radar throughout the games, as he lived up to his nickname and proved to be a silent but deadly player. When asked how the game went, Nick told us, “I’m just happy nobody died.”
(That's the spirit!)
Mike got a little salty with some of Luke’s moves, saying “Luke had a lot of cheap backboard shots,” but this clearly didn't bother Luke, as he felt confident about his performance in the game and admitted that, “today was the best TTT ever!”
Both teams showed true sportsmanship at the end, all high-fiving and saying, "good game."
Recently we were approached by the news to do a story on ‘Getting fit for Summer.’ Our first thought was YAHOO - 15 minutes of fame, sign us up quickly followed by - errrrrr - summer is just a few days away - we don’t sell quick fixes.
There are no quick fixes in terms of sustained health and fitness.
It is about doing the work day in and day out. Making a habit. Sticking to it. Commitment.
How about get fit for summer 2019? No bueno.
What we were able to talk about in our segment is the 5 habits you can commit to for lasting health and fitness.
These habits might not make you shed 20 pounds in as many days but they WILL have a massive positive impact on your health in the long run.
Super basic, right? BUT if you are not already committed to these habits, something as simple as drinking water can have a dramatic impact on your life - in just one or two days.
HALLELUJAH! We do have a quick fix! Drink more water! If you are not already drinking the recommended ½ your body weight in fluid ounces daily you will notice at least one of these incredible positive impacts almost instantly:
Increased energy levels
Less hunger cues
Improved quality of your skin
Less pain in your joint
Now challenge #2 - how to get fit for summer in 90 seconds.
At this point I tapped out and passed the mic to my husband, Mike with a ‘good luck buddy.’
Mike took this in stride and came up with 3 things to focus on in terms of physical activity.
Mobility is incredibly important and we focus a lot on mobility in our training sessions because it allows you to move freely and gracefully doing all things in life without compensation.
Cardiovascular conditioning helps keep your heart strong and healthy.
And finally, strength so that you can live daily life to the fullest.
There you have it - how to get fit, live healthy, and sustain it for a lifetime in 3 minutes. BOOM. Did we say we didn’t have a quick fix?
You can watch our segment here:
In all seriousness, it doesn't have to be super complicated to get in to good shape and live a healthy lifestyle but it does take consistency and commitment.
