Get Fit Body & Mind

Walking, running, lifting weights, zumba dance aerobics, yoga, aerial arts; all wonderful ways to get fit for the body and mind. Any exercise is good for the body & mind really! However, there are a few that aren’t mentioned due to the context or considered “taboo” to even discuss as of now, but hopefully not for long. The two I will be discussing are Pole Fitness and Sexual Intercourse.  I am sure there are a few people that are thinking that those two topics are related.  They are NOT! Unless you mean as a form of holistic fitness that feeds your body, mind and soul.

Pole fitness is one form of exercise that is rarely talked about and is an awesome way to get fit.  I want to express how pole fitness is actually a “workout”! It’s not just for the exotic dancer anymore, it has evolved into a serious core workout. Gymnast, rhythmic gymnast, professional dancers, Chinese Pole , Cirque De Sole have been known to wander into a pole class. But lets talk about the average student with absolutely no background in fitness or sport. The average person who is simply looking to try something other than the typical gym workout can venture into a beginner pole fitness class and truly experience a full body CORE workout! It’s no joke people! If you are looking to try something new and challenging, not to mention “fun” with a few laughs, this is it. Men and women of ALL AGES are dropping in on a pole fit class. There are many styles of “pole” and most people are aware of the “sexy” side of pole. However, just like there are many styles of dance (ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop) pole also offers a variety as well. I ‘m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed, but I will warn you…… you may become addicted! That will be one addiction that’s good for you. Advice: DO NOT let your weight, size, lack of coordination stop you from trying a pole class! Trust me, there are all forms of body’s in a beginner pole class and nobody judges you for your size or capability to perform. Keep in mind that we all have potential! Another note, if you are over weight, chances are if you’re consistent with pole class, you will drop in size dramatically. Here’s the kicker, you won’t even realize your exercising because you’re having so much fun learning. Find a reputable studio with certified/experienced instructors and give it a whirl! I also want to add that there is a whole new world of pole fitness that you may not be aware of. Pole fitness is growing fast. There are pole competitions going on with amazing talent! However, those competitions are for the serious pole fitness artist/performer. If you want to be inspired check out pole fitness competitions even if you’re not looking to get into the competitive side of pole fitness. Absolutely breath taking performances!

Let’s talk about Sex……..Yup, I wrote it, typed it, so I’m saying it. SEX is one great way to get your exercise for Body & absolutely for Mind! Do I need to say more? It’s awesome, it’s healthy, it’s relaxing (even without lighting up that cigarette), and it’s fat burning! Just to make myself clear, I’m not encouraging sex with multiple partners. What I am saying is sex is good and “making love” is better. There is a difference, yes it’s true. If you haven’t experience “making love” with someone you are absolutely positively “in love” with then sadly, you wouldn’t know the difference. It will put you on another high, assuming that your experience with intercourse already does put you on a cloud. Some may say that making love is an art. However you define it, is personal for you. Think about the muscles that are involved. Pelvis thrusting, this can be considered a fairly good ab or core work. Definitely your gluteus maximus muscles are involved! Come on! Seriously, you can work up a good sweat during a love making session! What I’m saying is that not only does it feel good, which is obviously awesome mentally and emotionally, but it truly is yet another way to burn a few calories that has potential to put a big happy face on your day!

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
