MAKING THE INVESTMENT… We’re bombarded almost daily with people who are looking for us to invest with them, fielding phone calls from clearly overcrowded call centers on the greatest next big venture, someone who claims they can navigate the choppy waters of cryptocurrency and guarantee returns 10-fold or the dreaded “no, we are not selling you a cellphone contract” call. They come in all shapes and forms and none of them start off honestly, which in itself should signal a warning sign. Don’t get me wrong; there are many great investment vehicles, locally as well as offshore and more often than not it’s the ones you’ve researched. For me though, the best investment you can make is in yourself. Self-betterment is so often overlooked and pushed aside, but why not just…

There’s nothing Jessie Graff likes to do more than to defy gravity. Whether she’s scaling 15-foot-high walls, jumping nearly five feet in the air, or hanging from ledges the width of a ruler, the 34-year-old American Ninja Warrior queen and professional stuntwoman appears to have superhuman strength and power. But while her natural tenacity and hyperfocus on being her best help, Graff works hard to make things look so easy. As one of the top obstacle competitors on the planet — male or female — Graff is constantly looking for new ways to train. The entryway of her Southern California home in the US is a 360-degree gym, complete with climbing walls, padded floors, and hanging bars. She’s even got a backyard trampoline and treadmill pool. “My life’s mission has been…

Her routines vary with the day, but here’s a sampling of her favourite training moves that help keep her in top form for whatever insane challenge she takes on. CLASSIC PULL-UP STRENGTHENS BACK, SHOULDERS, ARMS, CORE Hang from a pull-up bar with hands slightly wider than…

When we want something, we want it now! We live in a society where instant gratification has become the norm, health and fitness not excluded. However, a new study published in the American Academy for Neurology showed that middle-aged women with high physical fitness were nearly 90 percent less likely to develop dementia decades later, compared to women who were moderately fit. It’s time to change our mindsets when it comes to our health and fitness and look more towards the future than the immediate now, keep going! Your body and mind will thank you later.…
