Week Seven Forever Fit Defying GravityWith only one more week of circuit training for CLUB 14 FITNESS’ Forever Fit Challenge, week seven was all about defying gravity. It is obvious the contestants have gotten stronger both physically and in their relationships with each other.

Sunday’s training sessions are playful with Kevin and Lawrence constantly offering each other coupons to Townies Pizza, Cold Stone Creamery or Murray’s Grille. All kidding aside, the entire group has been encouraging each other in all of the group fitness classes offered at this Amelia Island gym.

Even those of you playing along at home are reporting weight losses well into double digits, including myself, who hit a milestone this week of over 20 pounds lost forever!

When editing this week’s video, I added pictures of “before”, but with only two more videos left in this 2011 season, I decided to make you wait until the end of the series… but trust me when I tell you, “These folks are looking so much healthier than they did in week one!”

Here is the Week Seven Video:


In case you missed this take on the importance of walking, here it is again:

The Importance of walking
Original author Unknown

Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $2,000 per month.

My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he’s 97 years old and we have no idea where the hell he is.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I’m doing.

I joined a health club last year, spent about 250 bucks. Haven’t lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there!

Every time I hear the dirty word ‘exercise’, I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they’ll say, “‘Well, he looks good doesn’t he.”

If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.

I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years, just getting over the hill.

We all get heavier as we get older, because there’s a lot more information in our heads. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a pub with a Happy Hour and by the time I leave, I look just fine.

You could run this over to your friends but just e-mail it to them! It will save you the walk!
