The sunny state of California is well-known for beaches, surfing, and stunning natural landmarks.
And it’s no secret that California is home to something else:
Hot bodies and Hollywood.
You’ve seen them on the internet—ripped, muscular, and tanned people training on Muscle Beach at the Santa Monica Pier. California is so synonymous with celebrity fitness that our governor is Hollywood superstar and former Mr. Olympia Bodybuilding Champion, Arnold Schwarzenegger. You can’t make this stuff up!
Gold’s Gym in Venice, Los Angeles, California is one of the most popular destinations in the world for fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts. Unfortunately, Gold’s Gym had to close down many of its locations. These past few years haven’t been easy for the businesses in our country.
In my youth, I preferred physical activity in the form of crazy concerts and parties. Just thinking about those days gets my heart pumping and blood flowing through my veins.
I’m not a huge gym goer and I’ve never been into fitness and lifting weights. In fact, I’d rather not lock myself in a room surrounded by heavy metal equipment—the only heavy metal I like is the type that musically caresses your eardrums!
That said, these last few years have really made me focus on taking care of my health. I mean seriously, I have realized how lucky I am that my family and I are healthy and happy.
I’m not too worried about how my body looks—in fact, I think I look great for my age and all the experimentative stuff I used to do—but I do care about my health and longevity.
So instead of getting a gym membership, I decided to start working out at home with a combination of high-intensity interval training and yoga. With high-intensity interval training, you can train without equipment or use a handful of kettlebells or dumbbells. Yoga doesn’t require much equipment either—just a mat and maybe some foam blocks.
I did procrastinate just a little when I started my fitness journey. I wasn’t motivated to go outside to exercise when I saw that the grass wasn’t looking so green. I had just given up at some point with all the lawn maintenance. Pushing around a lawnmower, pulling out weeds, and carrying around a water hose was both a chore and a workout—and not a fun one at that.
One of my friends told me about artificial grass and how easy the installation was. I booked my appointment with NoMow Turf after seeing the transformations on their site. I was highly impressed by the quality and durability of the synthetic grass that they offered. Had I known about synthetic turf sooner, I wouldn’t have had to spend so much time tending to my lawn all these years!
Thanks to my fitness journey, both my lawn and I have experienced a makeover—and my wife couldn’t be happier!
As for me, I can’t stress enough how much I love exercising in the privacy of my own backyard, breathing in the fresh outdoor air, and bathing under the sunlight. I used to be sore from all the lawn care I had to do with natural grass, but now the back pain is gone and the only soreness I get is from doing exercises I actually enjoy.
I wonder if I’ll ever look good enough to become super fit and famous.
