The opening act...

We had our second edition of the Ottawa Health and Fitness TweetUp last week at Rama Lotus. Another great event, and this time we had the lovely and talented Kathy Smart as our guest speaker.

1. There are a lot of cool and engaging folks in Ottawa: And most of them are into health and fitness from what we could gather from our gathering. It’s nice to see a

2. Connections were made: To me, that’s the real value of a TweetUp; connecting with folks in real-time. Business cards were flying everywhere! That was one of the intentions when we came up with this idea last year, for some like-minded folks to come together and share. Now we just need a few more cool folks to come out…

3. People are funny: If I had a dime for everyone that told me that would be there, I could have made a small fortune. I was worried that the room was too small. We still had a decent turn out but (you know me and my crazy ambition) I was hoping for twice or thrice that!

4. If you give people a relaxing place and some interesting folks, they might stay forever: After the formal part (us speaking), we had some great prizes to draw. Then it was the mingle part. And mingling they did! I almost had to throw people out since we some folks stuck around to chat for two hours…

Kathy shared with us the top super foods. See below for the document that inspired her great talk.

    Let’s face it to enjoy your spare time you must get into some sort of physical training routine. You must develop this arduous zest for life deep in the central heart of your being. This zeal for life must be in your purpose. The essential practices of your purpose must be an athlete endeavor. We must be faithful to our practices and teach the essentials to all who would benefit. These essential benefits help you to function with your optimum efficiency. It allows you to function as an organic whole, not overt, unnecessary tension that stems from the ego. If your core is weak, other areas outside the core have to compensate. Don’t be a casual observer while life passes you by. Love every minute of it.

    “Core Training” is the definition of essential practices we are looking for, whether it be Pilates, martial arts, yoga, the Olympiads, and dance all have core training as its key. But, golf will also benefit from core training. You simply must have core strength to be a powerful and explosive athlete. To have that vibrant youthful resiliency, you must have core strength. The “Core Strength” can be achieved by motivating yourself to focus on an all body exercise regime, covering your arms, abs, back. shoulders, glutes, legs, and glued togther with a balanced diet, but firstly you must be motivated to achive balance in your life, without the necessary motivation all your goals and ambitions will end in nothing.
