New Attitude: A few months ago, if I would take four or five days off from jogging and then try to jog again, it would be hard. Since I started on Reliv in May, anytime I decide to jog it’s like I never stopped.

New Season: I was on the products for three weeks and my husband (not on the products) complained about his allergy symptoms, but I wasn’t experiencing any. He would say, “Oh, they’re so bad this year!” I would look at him and say, “They are?”

New Role: I wasn’t going to sell Reliv, but I’m getting these results! I have energy and I feel good! I see Reliv as part of my daily life and look forward to sharing it with others as opportunities arise.

Overwhelming Science: The business part got my attention. The science behind the nutrition was overwhelming. I decided the best way to know the product was to use it. I wanted to connect somehow and learn as much as possible about the business and products.

No Limits: Business-wise, there is no limitation or ceiling. Reliv rolls out the carpet where hard work can once again be applied with pride and anticipation. I know I can move forward with the help of mentors and other inspiring people.

Building a Better Future: Reliv allows people to step out of antiquated savings and retirement plans in order to enjoy life again, not as a last resort but as a business model with multiple income channels and a philanthropic opportunity — not to mention improving their own health!

Wrestling to Running: I returned from Kuwait earlier this year and had been running to stay healthy. I was a wrestler in high school, not a runner. When I joined the Army, I had to get used to it and ended up running a lot on deployments to kill time.

New Mission: While overseas, I decided to see more of America by running across the country to raise money and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project when I got home. I needed something to keep me healthy during my long days of running.

Spreading the Word: I started using Innergize! for hydration and then added ProVantage for recovery and a protein boost. I drink it every morning before I run and haven’t had any issues so far. I’m glad to have Reliv nutrition on my side. Learn more about Tysen’s cross-country run at alloberamerica.org.

Seeing the Proof
I was introduced to Reliv by my father-in-law. He and his wife moved into a retirement center because of her joint discomfort. Someone there said, “We’ve got something for that.” After using Reliv, they were able to move out to independent living again when she was nearly 84.

Giving It a Try
My husband began taking Reliv, but I was already taking a powdered supplement. We traveled for Christmas and didn’t want to bring both, so I used his Reliv. My body told me, “This is the good stuff; don’t go back.”

Feeling the Difference
Reliv has given me more energy and mental focus and boosted my immune system. I think people who haven’t used Reliv don’t understand how good health really feels!

4 Hydration Myths Busted for Summer

With summer at the height of its heat and humidity, we love to cool off with afternoons at the pool or days at the beach. But in all the water fun outside, we can’t forget our water intake. Even if we know we can’t live without it, we may be a fuzzy on the facts: How can we hydrate? How much do we need each day? Here are four myths you may have heard about hydration, and the truth behind them — just in time for temperatures that push the triple digits. Continue reading “4 Hydration Myths Busted for Summer”

Beating Workout Boredom

The tennis shoes sit inside your closet, staring you down. When are you going to take me to the gym again? You pretend not to notice them and reach for slippers instead, knowing you’ll have much more fun at home tonight. When was the last time I used a treadmill? You think for a moment, but realize it’s been too long to remember exactly.

If you’ve ever had this conversation with your tennis shoes, you might be battling workout boredom, which makes it easy to hit a wall in your motivation to exercise. If you’re losing the fight against apathy, here are three tips for breaking in your tennis shoes again while having fun.

1. Do what you love.

You don’t need to sign up for the yoga class if you’d rather take a nap on your mat than perform a Child’s Pose. A surefire way to kill your motivation is to make working out miserable — of course you won’t want to come back if you’re uninterested or overwhelmed! If you love dancing, try zumba. If you spend your free time at the pool, learn to master lap swimming. If you like the toned look from weight lifting, incorporate it into your weekly lineup.

Bottom line: don’t force the treadmill on yourself if you’ll go crazy. Of course, be careful not to overwork one part of your body or ignore another area — discipline is key and you’ll need to balance cardio and muscle building. You may be surprised, too — if you’re not sure about trying a new machine or set of repetitions, see Tip #3.

2. Work while you do what you love.

A trendy fitness trend all over Pinterest is television workouts, which suggest different exercises whenever something happens on a show. For example, a pin for one my favorite shows suggests performing 30 lunges each time one of the main characters drinks coffee and 20 crunches when another reads, both of which usually happen multiple times per episode. A similar one is a commercial workout, doing push-ups or jumping jacks when a car or insurance ad airs. (Something like this is perfect for a rainy or too-hot-to-breathe day, too!) Although this can’t replace your cardio, it’s a way to keep moving instead of staying a couch potato.

Another option? Crank up the tunes. You can motivate yourself to work out until a new album or playlist finishes. If you’re tired of the same-old, same-old on your iPod, check out this list of Top 100 Workout Songs from professional trainers. It includes everything from pop to hip-hop, oldies to today’s Top 40.

One more tried-and-true option is to enlist a friend in your regimen. Catching up on a walk burns more calories than doing it over a cup of coffee, and you can keep each other accountable to your routines.

3. Mix it up.

If you spend every morning staring at the same spot on the wall as you run the treadmill, no one would blame you for feeling bored. Routine can help consistency, but one of its dangers is monotony. Try using the elliptical for cardio one week and the stair climber the next.

Don’t be afraid to try something new, either! If you’re not sure where to start, check out a website like AceFitness.org, with videos and diagrams of routines, or sign up for a class at your local gym. Something as simple as running outside or lifting at a different time of day can spice up your ritual. Whatever happens, don’t let the exercise ennui set in again — variety will keep you moving even after you’ve settled into a new practice.

Remember to boost your performance and recovery with Reliv’s ProVantage® with LunaRich®. With 13 grams of muscle-building soy protein per serving as well as other advanced ingredients, ProVantage will give you edge you’ve been looking for. You can also stay in top form with Innergize!®, Reliv’s isotonic formula that features ingredients like ChromeMate® and OptiZinc®, the most readily absorbed forms of chromium and zinc available. Plus, Innergize! contains vitamins, minerals and amino acids to give you added energy, promote oxygen absorption and boost your immune system. It’s a win-win!

Be sure to talk with your physician before beginning any exercise program. Each individual has different health needs that should be considered before attempting a new program.

Because of Reliv: I Run Marathons

DeniseCurry-web

Denise Curry,
Scarborough, Maine

I took up running 10 years ago to help a friend who needed a running buddy. My son did his first 5K at the age of 8 and completed it in only 24 minutes! He challenged me to step it up, so I gave Reliv’s 24K™ and Innergize!® a shot. I take some before my races and then put a few 24K bottles in my pockets. It helps keep me focused on the task at hand and gives me a boost of energy during my race. It pushes me through the moments when I feel like slowing down. I stay focused on my goal! The Boston Marathon this year will be my 6th full marathon!

Update: Denise and her son both safely finished the 2013 Boston Marathon.

Dramatic Change: I’ve had joint discomfort for years and experienced a lot of swelling and inflammation. I started taking Reliv shakes every day. Not long after, I could tell a huge difference and felt great!
Endless Opportunity: I tell people about Reliv every day. There are people out there who need what we have to offer. The money I earn (more than $1,000 in just my second month!) is just a bonus on top of changing lives. The opportunities are endless!
Renewed Energy: I used to be tired all the time. After taking Reliv, I finally know how good I can feel. How could I not want to share this with everyone? I firmly believe in these products. When you haven’t felt good for 20 years, it gets you excited.
