How to Get Rid of Cellulite and Look Hot? This is Your Place For Reviews and Strategies To Reach Your Goals!

Welcome to Body Slim Down.  I am Cheryl.

First let me give you a big and enthusiastic welcome! I started this site because I am so pleased by the results I have gotten with my products from Beachbody.com.  You owe it to yourself to try out muscle confusion workouts. I am in the best shape of my life and I’ll just say that I am quite a few years beyond when I should be able to make that statement.  These products are so powerful.   I make a rule that I only talk about companies and products that I am passionate about.

I am proud to say we have added on to our mission here at Bodyslimdown.com. This is my way of responding to the high demand among my largely female readership.

How To Get Rid Of Cellulite?

Effective and permanent cellulite removal is a new area of focus for Bodyslimdown.com. We are pleased to bring our resources fully in to help as many women as possible with this unsightly and downright life altering problem. You don’t have to wander around blindly looking for solutions any more.

Let me try to guess why you are at: you have cellulite, you hate cellulite, you want to get rid of cellulite, and you’ll try literally anything. I’ll even bet you have. We are talking the creams, the pills, the rubs and massages, the lasers and electric light treatments, busting your butt in the gym and of course the roots, stems and sticks tasteless diet.

EFFECTIVE CELLULITE REDUCTION IS NONE OF THESE THINGS.

I KNOW you are motivated to get rid of the jiggly gross cellulite look. You need real information and most importantly REAL SOLUTIONS.

  1. Correct information in body movements. We are not talking rigorous heart pounding exercise by the hour. But you have to engage the muscles which support the skin cells which make up the visible cellulite.
  2. Understanding which foods help and which foods hurt your quest for cellulite removal so you can make smart dietary choices.

Working important muscles properly and eating better are really actually the the only two factors which matter in a cellulite treatment and your total lasting removal plan.

 What are the Basic  Vital  Principles For Lasting Cellulite Removal?

 

  1. You must train the right muscles which support the sagging skin in the right way. This
  2. This means you should avoid ineffective muscle exercises which do nothing to help get rid of your gross cellulite
  3. Eating foods which lessen the effect of water build up in the cell walls will be your additional line of defense against the reemergence of cellulite so you can look hot in shorts, bathing suits, your favorite sexy tight cocktail dress or behind closed doors in your more intimate moments. LOOK HOT NAKED LIKE YOU DID WHEN YOU WERE IN YOUR LATE TEENS.

There is no magic to it! It’s all knowledge and applying that knowledge.

Here is another shocker: Cellulite can actually be made worse by over work in the gym. So hours and hours of painful uncomfortable cardio or gym workouts need to be taken off the table. They don’t get to the heart of the problem!

 

What is Different About Correct Training to Maximize my Vertical Leap?

One thing I Quickly Discovered in my Search For Quality Information on Cellulite Removal: There is so much Myth Being Passed Off as Fact That It is Easy to Get Confused

Did you know?

That cellulite is made up of two very specific factors which make it’s occurrence much more prevalent in women?

1. And this is hugely important. (the skin cells of women have a different pattern of interconnection than men which causes their sagginess caused by water build-up to be more noticeable than with men. So women and men have the same problem but women suffer with visual unsightly effects of cellulite.

2. Every bit of skin on the cellulite problem areas (buns, upper thighs, legs) depends on underlying muscle to support that skin. If you properly condition the underlying muscle, you will provide proper support to the skin and it will be healthy rather than saggy (due to the poor muscular foundation)

Who Are Good Candidates for Cellulite Removal the Way We’ll Be Suggesting?

Women of any age who want to get rid of cellulite and look sexy hot with smooth youthful hot legs and buns.

If I Want To Get Rid of Cellulite Quickly and Permanently, What Is My Next Step?

My best advice would be for you to become a regular reader and contributor to this website. We review all the latest information and materials online and offline as well as bring fresh reviews.

As Far As Programs for Cellulite Removal, I have two favorites currently:

1. Cellulite Factor by Dr. Charles Livingston focuses on cellulite removal by eating more foods which promote water reduction in the cell walls. The program comes with a new return full refund guarantee and has been well received by users.

You can learn more about Cellulite Factor Here

2. Truth about Cellulite by Joey Atlas. This cellulite removal program attacks the problem with exercises which stimulate and strengthen the key muscles which provide the foundation for the skin in the buttocks and upper thighs.

You can learn more about Truth About Cellulite Here

Whichever direction you go, know that there are definite ways to get rid of unsightly cellulite which are out there and are highly successful. We’re going to explore those ways here at Bodyslimdown.com as well as look at things which aren’t working and will never work.

We’re going to get into all the important points you need to know to end unsightly cellulite and look as hot as you always knew you could be.

Thanks for visiting!

Digest Talks All Kinds of Things Going On

One of the areas I’ve had to cope with unfortunately is the obvious consequences of two factors in confluence. One, the fact that I am approaching 50 years old and two the fact that I like to exercise to stay in shape.

What do these two factors go together to create? Well for me and millions like me, even those who don’t work out. We are talking about chronic bodily pain. We do the prescribed icy hot treatments. We take our Advil. We rest.

We do whatever we can that’s out there. However, the fact remains that this isn’t always enough. I have discovered pretty recently the power and potential for good things in the pain management department of those tens electronic pulse massagers.

Basically how these work is you hook yourself up to a very simple little unit not much bigger than an earlier version of a cell phone. Then simply let the pulses generated work as an externally based internal massage for the affected areas of pain.

Check out this Electric Pulse Massager Unit. It features (courtesy of Amazon.com)

  • Six Auto Modes (stimulation programs), , Fully-adjustable Speed & Intensity, High Frequency stimulation to relieve pain
  • 4 Attachment pads included, Power: DC 6V (4 AAA batteries included)
  • Best unit for Stress, Muscle Soreness, Stiffness, or Chronic Pain. The Simplest Tens Pulse Massager Is Also the Most Advanced
  • LCD shows massage style, intensity and time remaining. Three selectable massages
  • Small and Lightweight – At only 5.3 Oz, is no bigger than a remote control, , this unit packs enough power to thoroughly massage your body, but can travel with you anywhere you like.

It also has an excellent 4.3 average rating out of 5 for customer satisfaction with over 200 reviews.

If You Need A Lawyer…..

You won’t find any better then the Blanch Law Firm in NYC.  They are a full-service criminal defense firm with the ability to handle the complex white collar crimes as well.  A criminal lawyer has to have three attributes: Smarts, experience, guts. You don’t need a good old boy when you are looking for a criminal defense attorney. You need a fighter. This is especially true in major cities like New York, where the sad reality is prosecutions by the government often take on a more public and aggressive style.

Blanch is considered the top rated firm for criminal defense in New York City. Keep them in mind.

Another Interesting Word on Testosterone and Men

We talked recently about the many ways men are experiencing disintegration physically and emotionally with the reduction of testosterone levels with age. There are many ways to attack the problem, and we advocated a holistic approach of eating correctly, getting proper rest, and exercising appropriately (meaning not overdoing it).

Men especially rely on increasing testosterone levels to keep and increase muscle size in conjunction with their workouts. If you are looking for a best testosterone booster, a strong case can be made for Testosterone MAX. The reason I like it is it relies on natural occurring elements to help encourage the natural production of testosterone in the body.

Mike Volkin Returns With The Simple Rules of Being in Your Best Physical Shape

We love Mike and he makes the sometimes cloudy concepts of fitness simple to understand and apply.

Try the DCN Rules for Getting and Staying in Shape

Military fitness trainer and inventor of Strength Stack 52 fitness cards, Sergeant Michael Volkin, has only three main rules for staying in shape. He refers to all three of these rules as the DCNs of fitness. “If you use my rules of DCN, you will have a killer body and be healthier than ever” he claims. So what is DCN? We wanted to know too, so we asked Sergeant Volkin.

Question: Sergeant Volkin, you have said the DCNs of fitness encompass everything you need to get and stay in shape, can you tell us what DCN stands for and why it’s so important?

Sergeant Volkin: DCN is an acronym that stands for diversity, consistency and nutrition.

Diversity is important because your body has an amazing ability to adapt to exercises. But people don’t realize that. I see the same people in the gym month after month doing the same exercises. I call those “zombie workouts”. They are just going through the motions. What they don’t realize is after a while (about 4-6 weeks typically) your workouts start to become less and less effective. If you spend about 15 minutes a day planning to make your workout the following day a bit different, the difference it would make in your workout is enormous. Major changes aren’t needed, you could plan to do a new exercise or even change the speed at which you perform your normal routine. That’s one of the biggest benefits to Strength Stack 52. These fitness cards allow you to constantly introduce new exercises into your routine.

The C in DCN is the hardest for most people to accomplish. This stands for consistency. You must exercise consistently to get the results you want. Too many people get motivated sign-up for a gym membership then stop after about a month. Have you ever been to a gym in January? It’s a zoo! New people flood the gym every year because of new year’s resolutions, but by February the newbie’s are nowhere to be found. The best way to exercise consistently is to plan time for your workouts. If you block off an hour a day 7 days a week to work out, you are much more likely to complete your workout. Yes, you should plan for 7 days a week because a couple days out of your week something is going to cause you to cancel your workout. If you plan for 7 and do 5 workouts, that would a fantastic accomplishment. It’s important that you do whatever you can to not schedule anything over your workout time.

The N stands for nutrition. Yes, working out alone could make you fit, but proper nutrition only accelerates that process. I could write a book about how to supplement an exercise program with nutrition, in fact, I have a product soon to be launched called Weight Loss Stack 52 that does just that. But my advice to you is stop with the fad diets. You don’t need to starve yourself to lose weight, you don’t need to avoid all carbs or go on celebrity diets, simply make smart eating decisions. If you’re hungry, eat something, just instead of eating a bagel; eat something healthier, like a piece of fruit.

Combining those three elements, diversity, consistency and nutrition, you will become as healthy as you want to be. Most importantly, accomplishing these three elements won’t change your life. With a little bit of preparation and smart decision making you could make incredible health improvements.

Guest Post: Health and Fitness While On Vacation. (Yes It Actually Can Happen)

Guest Post today from Kendra who is a fan of the site. Topic which I think should be written about more often.

Family Fitness and Health While on Vacation

As one of those health-enthusiast mothers, I can say from experience how difficult it can be to get the family on the healthy living bandwagon. Like most children, they tend to like what’s not good for them. Still, I try to maintain an environment of wellness in our home by keeping up a routine of healthy habits. Unfortunately, going on vacation can interrupt these routines, so it’s important to focus on little ways to keep those habits going. Here are a few of my secrets for this.

All Things in Moderation

When you inevitably encounter a buffet during your trip, try not to panic. All of those scrumptious eats at your fingertips can leave your conscience at war with your more indulgent side, causing an unpleasant degree if internal conflict. You can still enjoy this occasion, but it’s important to exert some self-control. Try loading up most of your plate with steamed veggies, salad and other nutritious options. Leave the rest of your plate space free for sampling decadent foods like that succulent prime rib or bacon mac and cheese.

Redefining Local Restaurants

When most people think of eating local, their minds turn to whatever restaurant is closest to their hotel. However, some restaurants are now redefining that term by utilizing only locally produced ingredients. When fruits, veggies and animal products have a long way to travel, they can lose a lot of their beneficial nutrients. Sourcing locally produced foods helps avoid this situation. Plus, because of the types of people these restaurants cater to, there’s a wide availability of nutritious dishes prepared in healthy ways.

Turn Your Hotel Stay Into a Fitness Spa

With so many people becoming interested in healthy living, more hotels are working to accommodate these emerging preferences. People who are serious about their health don’t want to abandon their fitness routines just because they’re away from home. By researching prospective hotels before leaving, you can pick out the ones that have the best fitness accommodations for you, such as tennis courts, gyms or walking trails. This was one tip that proved to be exhausting for our upcoming trip to Orlando. With so many hotels in Orlando, sites like Gogobot can really help make the process a little easier.

Get Wet

Water is one of the most important, yet most underestimated, substances needed by your body. Proper hydration is key for a healthy metabolic rate, and also for flushing harmful impurities out of your bloodstream. Furthermore, spending long periods in heat or sun is less damaging when you’re fully hydrated. To help yourself remember to drink more water, be sure to bring some with you when you’re sight-seeing, exercising or actively traveling.

We’re Talking Tea in Today’s Feature: Opportuniteas Actually

One of the unbelievably powerful benefits of the internet is the existence of what I call super nutritional products created by smart well-meaning people. Now the internet doesn’t make these products exist. They are the product of the mind of some sharp folks.

The internet brings it to our homes and makes it possible to order without the use of the traditional distribution chains. As we know, those chains rely on the judgment of third-party retailers.

We’re looking at a product that came to my attention from a company called Opportuniteas.  It’s a clear tea with a naturally nutrition rich constitution.

Opportuniteas

It is called simply ClearTea. You can look it and read up here. What makes it worth your time and money? Let’s start with some of what’s included on the ingredient’s list. Matcha green tea, Organic Cacao, Vitamin, B6, Vitamin D3,, Acai fruit extract 4:1 (fans of Oprah Winfrey have heard all about this powerful superfood, Pomegranate fruit juice extract 7:1 and more.

The idea is to combine them all into a pure enjoyable tea to produce optimum energy, and the clearest thinking. More attention absolutely needs to be paid both here and in the community at large to the importance of proper nutrition for the mind.

One of the big culprits in our energy drain and mind denseness at times is dehydration. With a product like ClearTea, you get hydration benefits as well get the nutrients you need.

Rhodiola Rosia is a key component ingredient in the ClearTea formula. The power of this little known ingredient to help with mental acuity and energy is beginning to become more well known.

I love that that the makers at Opportuniteas stand behind their product with a 60-day no hassle guarantee. I am wagering that you will see and feel  improvement well before that. Watch how the increased alertness mentally carries over into your performances physically in all things.

You also can get free shipping in the United States!

We’re going to be doing more with the mind body link to fitness over the next few sessions and I wanted to lead with a product that I think is on the leading edge of that school of thought.

Solutions for The Weight of Extra Pounds from A Popular Birth Control Device

When I took over this blog, I made a concerted effort to stay clear and focused to a mission of providing information on lifestyle and the interaction of many non-obvious factors on your weight and overall fitness.

We’re all products of many different environmental factors, both chosen and ones not chosen. One area that doesn’t maybe get enough shrift from the fitness community is the interrelationship between drugs/medical devices and our body outcomes.

Many prescription drugs for instance can cause us to gain weight in multiple ways. Often you will have metabolic slowing effects or you will have increased appetite effects.

How About the Link Between the Use of the Popular Birth Control Device Mirena and Substantial Weight Gain?

The Mirena and Paraguard IUD birth control devices represent a popular alternative to pills or drugs for many women to prevent unwanted pregnancy. On the downside, noted Mirena side effects include low-energy, irregular menstrual cycles, hair loss, low energy and many reported instances of weight gain.

Why do these things happen? Well unfortunately many users of Mirena are misinformed about how this IUD operates. The fact is that Mirena IUD acts like many synthetic drugs which we know are prone to adverse reactions in patients.

The sustained release of progestin from the IUD device, makes it less likely the body will produce the vital natural hormone progesterone. Then when the progestin is taken away (because the IUD) itself is removed, the earlier problem of lack of progesterone production is still there to be dealt with.

It is these imbalances which causes us to eat more and while our ultra-important metabolic rate (the speed and efficiency by which we change food into energy; what doesn’t get made into energy, it stored as fat.)

Mirena and weight gain are a fact of life for too many users.

The question of how to put things back into balance and lose the weight in a sustainable safe matter is the subject of an interesting program on overcoming Mirena side effects. You can check it out here. It is called The Complete Mirena Detox Program.  It’s available risk-free for the one time cost of a about a normal doctor’s visit.

Bodyslimdown Digest Talks Vitamins, Crossfit, Lingerie, The Exciting New World of Theme Extreme Races

A little bit of something for everyone today.

I want to lead with this. It’s not much different than what we’ve talked about throughout  our time together here on the blog. But we are going to attack it from a little bit different solution orientation.

We know that despite all the discussion about fitness and fitness products, what we eat is by far the biggest determinant of what we get in our health results. This means that food is a big deal. The harsh truth is food alone is not getting us sufficient nutrition and in many cases the malnourishment continues on and builds for years.

This is the real reason I encourage people, especially men who are heading into their 30s and beyond, to look to supplements to prevent this “nourishment gap” from occurring and widening with time.  Some facts to consider as I make my way towards a recommendation  on a great vitamin supplement resource:

-  Men today are busier than ever and we’re eating on the run. Faster eating means more junk food eating. Most of this stuff isn’t sufficient for our health.
- the USDA says men 31 to 50 require 350% more dark green vegetables and 150% more fruit per day in order to meet federal dietary recommendations.
- Men over 50 should take a supplement because their body doesn’t absorb vitamins and minerals such as B12, D and Folic Acid as efficiently as when they were younger

So here’s what I want you to strongly considering checking out.  The Ambroley Labs Men’s Multi Vitamin is that gap filler and then some to create a fully energized and vitamin sufficient day without having to gather and cook for it. I deal in reality. One of the biggest realities is we just aren’t going to do the research and put in the time to find the foods and then cook the foods to get us anywhere near where we should be.

The goal is always to eat well but the larger goal is to be healthy. When you look at the Ambroley choice here are some basic specs:

  • High in Vitamin B -  for increased energy, performance and cell growth and enhance the immune system
  • High in Vitamin D – provides support for memory function and reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Proprietary digestive, antioxident and neurological blends
  • Premium Quality – Made in a FDA registered facility in the US – using highest quality raw materials

Get to know Ambroley Labs here as well https://www.facebook.com/ambroleyonline and https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ambroley-Labs/234517400059913.

Two Things that Go Great Together: Zombies and Getting Your Exercise Running Away From Zombies

This came across my desk and I liked the idea right away. Remember I am not the most culturally adept person on the planet. I mean I’d heard of “The Walking Dead” and knew the concept revolved around zombies. That’s about it though. I know it’s hot and it’s way beyond mere trend. I am just slow on the draw.

These folks figured that with extreme “tough” runs gaining in popularity, why not add zombies chasing you? Outside of a wine tent at the finish line I can’t think of anything that would keep me moving faster. So why not a Zombie 5k obstacle course run?  This Zombie 5k is designed to test speed, endurance, and strength under the simulated stress conditions of your favorite movie or tv character being pursued by zombies.

No kidding.

Intimate Apparel Has A New Name You Should Check Out

I’ll bet you never thought you could top the lingerie from the big catalogs and mall stores? I mean you’d get the impression that if you weren’t being made aware of other options, that there really are no other superior options.

Not true. You can actually buy lingerie online that is custom made of embroidered lace, silk, and satin that has unmatched quality and design. Individual designers create them and not large scale sweatshops. The difference is obvious and the extra care translates to the recipient which is the entire point.

Remember we are about taking care of ourselves in all areas and feeling special. Making this special is a large part of living well. I love their product line.

I Can’t Believe That This is the First Time We’ve Mentioned This On Our Website

I am talking about the beyond sensational workout program CrossFit. This approach to getting into shape has taken on a life of it’s own and is spreading all over the world like crazy. What is CrossFit and is it something beginners can do?

Answer to question 2 is absolutely. The reason: there is so much variety in moves and workout structures day to day that you are competing against yourself without worry about where you are at the present moment. Gains come fast and they are extremely rewarding. The key is high intensity moves (something we’ve stressed over and again in our workout approach). Basically working out to exhaustion with fast full throttle movements is being shown time and again to improve the body.

Facilities are popping up everywhere you turn. My friends over the border a bit in Canada, check out CrossFit Toronto.

Appetite Suppressants Are Fine and I Like This One But….

The key still lies in eating real whole some foods until we are full most of the time.

With greater frequency, supplements are being used to help with weight loss. Whatever your weight loss pill choice, getting a handle on eating properly and staying reasonably active (extreme exercise is not necessary remember) is still the formula for success. Here is an appetite suppressant that stresses the whole approach. (Which is really the only approach for sustainable weight loss and control): http://phen375reviewscritic.com/

Refocus: It’s Time To Get Back Outside Where Fitness Is Just Plain Easier

Yeah I know people living here in the upper Midwest would beg to differ, but it is actually spring on that calendar.

Even with the colder than normal weather, we are getting SOME nice days mixed in there right?  Well I say we are. Anyway you slice it, the days are longer and there’s more sun. Even if you don’t want to go outside, it pays to plan your nice weather outdoor adventures early.

The concept isn’t new to our readers: being outside moving around, even if not in an intense Cross Fit or P90X sense of the word,  is the path to being very fit as long as we are eating the right things most of the time.  Kayaking is a favorite of mine and I have an adventure for you right in our back yard just outside of Chicago.

www.KayakMorris.com has an evolved and more modern take on the traditional camping trip. The reality is everyone has a different view point on what they want and don’t want in a fun outdoor activity. Some love the rustic camping experience and some like parts of it but don’t want to give up all the amenities and modern conveniences that make their lives comfortable.

campgrounds in illinois

They set up something called  a Glampout for Earth Day on April 26 that looks like a blast while incorporating fresh air and exercise into the equation. Whenever you can have fun while being outside, you normally get all the exercise you need. No where is this more true than with kayaking or canoeing.

A Glampout derives from the concept by KayakMorris called Glamping. Fundamentally it is about camping with more comfort and insured body warmth. If there is one aspect of the traditional camping experience that turns people off never to return to anything close to doing it again, it’s getting cold and and hungry

The event begins with a large pot luck dinner and a movie right after if that tells you anything? A big breakfast is also provided the following morning. The kayaking takes you down the wide and lovely Illinois River with it’s expanse of wooded sandy beaches. There are multiple packages available at reasonable prices and the best thing is you don’t have to worry about towing along a bunch of gear that you don’t have or don’t feel like gathering.

Check out the KayakMorris Earth Day Glampout options here.

Household Workouts Creatively Using What You Already Have There

We always seem to come back to the same issue over and again when we are discussing weight loss and weigh maintenance: it’s the diet stupid.

When we are eating correctly and eating all we want of those correct items we magically get to the range we are looking to get to and seem to stay there with minimal effort. This is because we magically find our ideal zone because that’s what we are programmed to do.

Exercise is the tool to reach a specific body appearance goal that is beyond normal. If we want to look more toned, we employ certain methods or programs. If we want to get big and bulky, it’s another approach. If we want to be ripped fit, there are yet other methods.

The key for all of us generally in our busy lifestyles is moving around more, not overly inconveniencing ourselves with things that take up too much of our time, and getting the most in terms of results out of the time we have. We’re never going to stick with something that isn’t getting us results and doing so in the least disruptive manner possible.

That’s why I have always been a big fan of either hiring a trainer or doing a program (usually video or online) which gives you access to a trainer. You can’t duplicate the specific knowledge just coming up with something on your own.

Training You Can Do To Reach Your Fitness Goals Using Common Items From Around The House

My thanks to the cool fitness website http://blog.gumtree.co.za/ for some interesting and innovative ideas like doing push-ups using basketballs to increase stress and necessity for core muscles to engage and stabilize. Or how about holding bottles of water or juice while you do wall squats. Again, to make sure you get as much core muscle group stress and involvement as possible.

These short bursts of movements add up. To the degree we can get away from the mentality that we have to saddle ourselves with 1.5 hours or more of working out to get fit, the more likely it is we’ll actually be fit.

Also the site is out of South Africa and check out the impressive database of fitness personal trainers available.

City Dwellers With Busy Lives, No Need to Take Long Trips For Great Hikes

We’re heading towards the spring season in our neck of the woods and that means a renewed vigor and focus on staying in shape by being active outdoors. Let’s face it, too few of us get the outside movement we need to keep vital and in shape over the winter months.

Hey, no one is blaming you for that. I am not pointing fingers either. If I were, the first point would have to be right into the mirror.

We have said it before but it is always worth repeating, you do NOT have to do extreme workout programs to stay fit and in shape. You really only need to have normal  movement and make activity your habit while also eating the right things most of the time. (Remember the 80-20 of eating.  Eat good things as much as you want 80% of the time and watch the magic happen).

We know all that stuff  from past articles. But what largely remains unexplored for our readers is the question of what are some great outdoor activities? Specifically: what are some great ways to get in one of our favorites: hiking,  while not killing a bunch of time traveling out to the woods or mountains. I bring you urban hiking and some of the best choices out there.

The Top City Hikes In the World

My thanks to the wonderful adventure travel website kymtom.com for opening my eyes to what the world’s most majestic cities are doing to preserve the awesome physical and spiritual sport of hiking for people to enjoy.  I want you to check out the article here and envision yourself in some of these amazing locations breathing outdoor fresh air.

The citizens in and around  these cities definitely have an advantage but you are just going to have to make it a point to travel to these spots and see for yourself. Check out the mind blowing Hoerikwaggo Trail, Cape Town, South Africa and let your mind wander a bit.  Kymtom hits the travel stuff the right way with more detail on another undiscovered gem in South Africa: Johnnesburg.

Remember outside and moving around it absolutely all you need to stay really fit. So get to hiking if you don’t like running. It’s just as beneficial if not more so.
