Bystander CPR is key to Cardiac Arrest survival. All of the people that I know of that have survived a cardiac arrest (their heart stops) have had some element of bystander CPR before the paramedics arrived with advanced life support. I encourage all of you reading this to learn CPR. You could save a loved one or friend or a loved one or friend of someone else! Even “Hands only CPR” has been proven to help in survival rates! There are lots of places to learn and your local Red Cross is a great place to start!

I recently had to update my CPR/AED skills to include infants, as I was teaching mom and baby Pilates classes. I thought it would also be a good time to get my Standard First Aid, something I had been thinking about. I got in touch with my friends at the Red Cross and signed up through them for a two day CPR/AED and Standard First Aid course.

There’s always a small amount of fear when I sign up for courses like this. The reality is that you’re learning skills that could potentially save someone’s life. That’s a lot of responsibility and not to be taken lightly.

Our instructor for the two days, Brian, was really great. He kept us going through the material at an understandable pace and kept…

Moved a couple of weights around the other day. Man it’s hard to get my workout and running desire back again! I did get the chance to try out some @underarmourca RUSH gear that was sent to me! This shirt and tights felt amazing to put on and did not impact my range of motion at all. I could def feel the energy and heat being reflected back to me while I was working out. I did feel muscle soreness for a few days after but I attribute that to my lack of consistency more than anything! The fabric in this line is infused with minerals to reflect energy back into the body and improve performance similar to an infrared sauna. The science behind this says the minerals absorb the body’s heat and converts it into infrared energy that is re-emitted back into the body. This then increases localized circulation which results in improved performance and recovery. Check out what others are saying and search up the hashtag #UARush! I love it and will now be exclusively using this for all my workouts and running! Now if I can just work on my motivation and consistency and will to get out! Lol. I’m sure I’m not alone with this? Have any of you had this problem?
Nothing beats the feeling of brand new @enertorglobal comfort insoles in my work boots! #insoles #teamenertor #foothealth
