Mike Luque is a jack of all trades. Mike has a diverse background ranging from Massage to Gyrotonic to Kettleball training. Therefore this website is able to provide a multitude of information as well as really good facts about the GYROTONIC® method. Other topics include healthy eating, recipes, breathing, and meditation. His website also features an active blog where he and some guest authors (like moi) keep you up to date on the happenings in health and fitness to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
From studying Dance Science at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, I have become promptly familiar with IADMS. Along with their membership and annual meetings, they have just started their own blog! This is exciting (and important) as it brings real-time information for dancers, teachers and educators. Each post is written by a different researcher from the IADMS education committee to enhance the reader’s knowledge of health and well-being in a dance context. One of my favorite posts is The Pelvis: The Meeting Point of the Body written by colleague, Clara Fischer Gam.
As a 5K race newbie, I needed all of the help I could get! Being a dancer for many years, aerobic fitness was always quite challenging. So to make things even more challenging for myself, I signed up to my first 5K (as you do). However, their beginner’s training schedule helped me out the most (along with dog-sitting). This website offers a lot inspiration and information about running that I never knew existed. It also helped me, as a beginner, to just get out there. From essential running gear to ‘survival tips’ this just might be your one-stop shop.
Where do I start? This fantastic website has been created by Wendy Myers and it is very in depth. I met Wendy back in Los Angeles at In-Spiraling Movement Arts (where I used to work) a few years back. She first told me about her post on the Infrared Sauna, that she often came in to use. Ever since then I was hooked. The website focuses on detox, nutrition (currently Paleo), dealing with health conditions, and how to pursue longevity. Not to mention her recipes are a downright blessing.
Keep exploring my fellow health and fitness enthusiasts!
