  1. Thankful for the motivation and encouragement towards better health.

    I’d love to see some posts and information about barefoot running–I noticed the vibrams in the video (close to barefoot but can be dangerous if a person isn’t running in proper barefoot form). There are many reasons to go barefoot… the parallels–shoes and running is like junk food and meats in the diet. Take a look at the long distance African runners… barefoot. It’s natural. Babies need the sensations from the feet to learn to walk.

    Anyhow, I don’t want to say to much and make it seem like I’m much of an expert. It would be nice to see some future posts about going barefoot. Peace!

  2. Stic, I-Will here….yo, when you get a moment to read this, know that I’ve been listening to the realness for a while brotha, since early 2002 when I got out of the Army, grew my Loc’s, and got custody of my daughter who is now 9yo.
    “FIT HOP” is the only thing I want to play in the gym where I personal train in Tucson, AZ.
    If you have use for more soldiers in the “Move-ment” …count me in 1000% as an advocate and a resource. Keep me posted with new ideas that extend further than ears***

  3. Bravo young man for sending the ‘right’ message to our youth around health and wellness of the Body Mind Spirit Balance. Born in 1945 I, wrote a book about reversing the aging process via this truth. Keep it real!
