Change is the only constant, so we decided to start with changing the logo of Back 2 Fitness to a more fun look. Even though it is pretty sexy now, you need to get off your royal butt and get moving.
A quarter to one-third of ladies experience heavy menstrual bleeding (periods). As if the society had done enough harm to repeatedly remind them that sports and exercises are very unladylike, these ‘painful’ periods acts like a massive deterrent to be themselves.
No amount of stability whether in-built in running shoes from the best brands or customised insoles (orthotics) are going to give you a long term solution. Only when you move and load those foot arches, similar to muscles in the rest of your body and even mind, will they get strong.
Yes, there is a role for rest, medicines, injections and surgeries in back pain, just that they are advised way too much & too often.
Most of us have been told by the so-sigh-tea (others or yourselves) that we can’t get fit. We then spend a lifetime proving that prophecy right. As part of the 10th edition I invite folks, who’ve struggled over and over again, to crawl-walk-run 555 kms (the longest category at the the 10th edition of La Ultra - The High) in next 321 days (as of 1st Oct 2018) and make ‘Impossible’ yell, ‘I’m Impossible’.

2018 CBSE results show that enormous number of students have scored above 90%. Good for them for having worked so hard. But are we giving them a false sense of over-achievement, soon followed by sense-of-entitlement. If they think there is no room for improvement, they stop improving.
Failure is the biggest teacher. It is inevitable you are going to face it in life. How you tackle being in the dumps and then bouncing back is what shows your true character.
Today the ‘so-sigh-tea’ aka ‘society’ will judge all the kids whose CBSE results came out earlier today based on the percentage marks they got. That’s pretty SAD & MAD. This is for all the kids out there...
