While you’re already busy during the holidays, there are plenty of ways to incorporate some exercise into what you’re doing. By purposely being a bit more active, you will be able to complete your to-do list while simultaneously checking off working out from the list.

Fractionalized Exercise: The Fitness Hack You Need to Know

Posted by Kyra Constam on July 6, 2017 at 11:00 AM

Whether you’re new to the fitness world, or you’ve been routinely working out for years, the term fractionalized exercise may not be familiar. However, it’s a concept of breaking up workouts that is being fervently researched and embraced by early adopters in the world of health because of its ease of use and its vast health benefits. While the American Heart Association recommends at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise for five days a week, or 25 minutes a day of vigorous aerobic activity for 3 days a week, it is not required to complete these times all at once. In fact, it may be more beneficial to break up your workouts into fractionalized exercise.

Take The Goji Challenge for Weight Loss

Posted by Leigh Conducy on May 29, 2015 at 11:58 AM

My name is Leigh Conducy and I am taking the Goji Challenge to lose weight and get fit. I know exactly when my weight got out of control. Right after high school.

I grew up very poor in Alaska. Most of the time, my mom and I were on food stamps and my diet was whatever we had available. My mom did her very best to give us everything we needed and I never starved, but I never got any extra servings and wasn’t offered all the food available to other kids.  

So, when I first started making money and could afford to buy my own food, I fell in love with eating. I went crazy, eating whatever I could get my hands on. That's when the weight gain started.

I have spent most of my adult life working long hours, doing blue collar labor and have never been able to prepare meals. Throughout my career, I ate on the fly and never stopped to sit down for meals. I have eaten whatever I could grab and then gone right back to work.

In 2008 I moved to Maui. My plan was to slow down, work a 40 hour week and start making time for myself. Maui is where I began my quest to really lose weight. I showed up to Maui weighing 285 pounds - the biggest I had ever been.  I started running and paddle boarding. I dropped all the way down to around 230, which for me, was awesome. I also picked up Jiu Jitsu in Maui and have been practicing that sport ever since. I love it and consider it my favorite hobby.

Now, life has changed. I've moved to Minnesota. I am a husband with two kids and one on the way. I work full time and am devoted to my family, so finding time for my health has been difficult. I needed to find a different way to get healthy. I needed something I could enjoy, something to motivate me to do cardio, because I dreaded getting on those exercise machines. An online search led me to Goji Play, which was exactly what I had been looking - but didn't know existed. Weight loss seemed finally seemed doable.
