Ladies summer body home workout: no weights needed

Lots of women want to get into shape for the summer or just improve their daily fitness. But like many of us they find themselves buried under work, family commitments and other priorities; leaving them little time to join or go to the gym.

That doesn't mean your fitness goals have to suffer or worse end!

A home workout is a great way to train whilst your food is cooking in the oven. Training before your meals will help you burn fat and get into shape!
This Circuit is simple but effective way, to start working towards achieving your goals... and even if you do have a gym membership you can still do it at the gym and add some weights.

What is a role model?

I recently commented on a status breaking down my opinion on role models and the characteristics they should hold

What makes a role model? Is it the story of victory over adversity, the tale of rags to riches or the impact they have had on the people around them?

I believe a role model is:
Substance over style, integrity over popularity, character over aesthetics and actions over empty words. 

Some role models touch you physically. They are there shaping you into the person you are day by day and step by step.

Whereas others touch you emotionally and spiritually. You never meet them face to face but their actions, conduct and words resonate with a part of your soul. Inspiring you to strive higher and dig deeper.

Anyone can fit those characteristics and be a role model to someone. From a family member, a teacher, a friend or political/sporting/entertainment figure. Or even someone who just took a moment of their day to shine a light in your life where otherwise there may have been darkness.

Success or greatness? I believe a role model is measured in their greatness rather than their success. Now that does not mean you can't be successful. It means you need to be more than just successful. A role model must be great! Great is defined as considerable above average. Example there are lots of successful sports people but few great ones. You can even have people who have more achievements but aren't as great as a woman like Mother Teresa who died with no worldly possessions; just the love of millions.

We live in a world whether people confuse popularity with substance. The internet is a visual media, it is a place where a pretty face will attract more attention than beautiful words. This is why the worth of a man or woman can not be measured on how many people follow them. But on how many people they have lead on to reach their own potential. How many people they have inspired to seek the greatness within themselves.

so, let me know your opinion on what makes a role model to you. Please comment below
