Why Fitness Friends Are So Important

5.3 Fitness Friend

By Reliv Product Marketing Specialist Tina Van Horn

I prefer to exercise in the morning. It’s the time of day when my energy is the best and also the only time of day that I can consistently make time to work out. So you might assume that I leap out of bed and grab my running shoes when the alarm goes off at 4:30 a.m., right? Well, not exactly.

There is generally some grumbling as I reach for the snooze button and my brain starts to process why I am getting up so early. About two minutes later, I am making my way to the kitchen for a shot of Reliv 24K® and to check my phone. At this point, I’m trying to figure out how I can squeeze in a workout later and secretly hoping for a text from Sara, my workout partner, to let me know that she can’t meet this morning to run. I am completely deceiving myself — I don’t have time later and Sara NEVER cancels. To be honest, I never cancel either. That’s the beauty of having a workout partner — motivation and accountability.

Science & Health Today: Taking Prevention Personally

By Tina Van Horn, Reliv Product Marketing Specialist

You might say that we take prevention personally here at Reliv. That’s because we know chronic diseases are a growing crisis in the United States. Currently, nearly half of the population suffers from at least one chronic disease such as heart disease, asthma, cancer, obesity, arthritis, and Type 2 diabetes. We can do better! So at Reliv corporate headquarters, we started our Fit3* program. Continue reading “Science & Health Today: Taking Prevention Personally”

Looking for hope: I was living a sedentary life, wracked by discomfort caused by post-polio syndrome. A friend from church brought me ‘hope in a can’ called Reliv and within weeks I felt like myself for the first time in many, many years.

An athlete’s journey: That began a journey that would lead to me becoming a hand cycle racer. I ride 50-70 miles a week, fueled by Reliv nutrition, and in the process have added 25 pounds of muscle!

Winning the race: I’m 59 years old and race against guys 20 and 30 years younger than I am, but I am a strong competitor. It is a miracle that I was able to compete with these exceptional athletes, and Reliv helped this miracle happen.
