Hi! I moved to a new place. I would love for you to visit me there.

From Sedentary To Active Lifestyle In One Month. Is It Possible?

As you might remember myself and Anastasiya Goers from Balance In Me were going to launch a program together. After lots of thinking, we decided that it would be better to wait until next year with it.

And then Anastasiya was inspired to create a retreat called From Sedentary To Active Lifestyle in One Month. I now understand why it looked like our program needed to wait. The retreat Anastasiya is launching now is something that she just had to launch first. I can see her passion. She put all her heart into it. I am confident she created something incredibly useful and unique. I personally never saw anything like this anywhere else.

You can check it out yourself here. Even if you don’t join, at least go and download her free 10 Minute-Do-It Anywhere Workout. Think about it: 10 minute do-it-anywhere. I am in love with this concept alone.

I had a chance to ask Anastasiya few questions about the retreat and here are her answers.

Lana: Hi Anastasiya,

Congrats on your upcoming retreat. As I’ve been following your blog for quite some time now, it looks like this retreat was a result of pure creative inspiration. Could you tell us more about what inspired you and how it all came together?

Anastasiya: On Balance In Me I write about life balance and any possible ways to reach it. Before I started working on the retreat I was writing a lot about self growth and work/life balance but then something strange happened.

I would like to say that it was inspiration but actually I stared having back problems and the reason for those problems was because I got so involved in my projects that I forgot to take care of myself. It was a wake-up call because I had the idea about running the retreat for a long time but I never actually started planning it.

Of course I am not the only person who is glued to the computer screen for many hours a day and I thought to myself “It would be great to create a program for those who do not have time to work out at the gym 6 times a week or run marathons. A program that will show people how they can stay active by incorporating do-it-anywhere 10 minute workouts into their lifestyles.”

I am not only a blogger, I am also a fitness instructor (I’ve been teaching for 7 years) and I decided to use the knowledge and experience that I collected  during all those years to help people who live sedentary lifestyles.

Lana: I loved the concept of 10 minute do-it-anywhere workouts. Are they really “do-it-anywhere”?  Could you tell us more about them?

Anastasiya: There is always something that you can do no matter where you are: in your office, in the car, on the plane, on the playground with your kids etc. Most people just do not know how they can use even the smallest space (like a cubicle) to squeeze in a mini workout. The simplest examples of exercises are lunges, squats, wall-pushups and of course walking.

The workouts that I create for the retreat are aimed specifically at people who sit a lot. I show how to stretch muscles that are generally tight and cause pains (neck pain, tension headache, lower and upper back pain), how to strengthen these muscles and how to add cardio that will boost your metabolism.

The workouts are truly “do-it-anywhere.” The only thing that you need for them is the desire to move.

Lana: Since I spend so much time at the computer, I often have back and neck pains at the end of the day, do you have any quick tips of what could help me? (Obviously without giving away all of your retreat’s content)

Anastasiya: Back and neck pains (that are not related to injuries or any degenerative condition) are caused by tight and weak muscles that cannot support your spine in an upright position. The easiest thing that anyone can do is to get up every hour or so and move for at least 2 or 3 minutes. Shoulder rolls, neck stretches are also a great way to relieve and prevent those pains. My favorite stretch for the beach is a Yoga Downward Facing Dog (you can google it.)

These pains are also often caused by stress (and I will talk more about it during the retreat) that is why relaxation techniques are often very effective in relieving those pains.

Then there is self-massage, more advanced stretches and of course strengthening exercises. I could probably talk for hours about back pain but I’d rather do it during the retreat:)

Lana: I know you are busy with the launch, so this is the last question, could you give me 3 key reasons why people should join the retreat?

Anastasiya: 1. I am sure that the retreat will make anyone healthier and make them feel better overall. (Do you know that a person who sits more than 6 hours a day is 94% (!) more likely to die early from any condition than a person who is active and sits 3 hours or less?)

2. During the retreat I will provide motivation and support that are soooo important when you develop new habits and set new goals (support and motivation are key factors in healthy habit adherence.)

3. The retreat will show you how to live actively without giving up your lifestyle and free time. You do not have to spend all your free time at the gym if you want to be healthy and fit and I will show you how you can do it.

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely in.

If you’d like to become more active,  want to try something new and don’t know where to begin and if you, like myself, would love to have few 10 minute do-it-anywhere workouts on hand and motivation to do them every day, I think you should check out Anastasiya’s From Sedentary To Active Lifestyle In One Month retreat.

It’s not another fitness program. It’s a Lifestyle Revolution.

And it starts soon. Like really soon – next Monday to be exact. I am excited.
