Well that sure got me pumped for today! I tried my first @barrysbootcampdubai class this morning and have to say ... mightily impressed! (Who else's parents used to use that phrase?). Firstly, so great to see equal numbers of guys and girls in the class - I always think it gives a better atmosphere And the class itself was a perfect combo of HIT cardio and heavy / effective weight training. I shall be back! Thanking you (now) for getting me up for a 7am start @fifi_mclaughlin Wearing @gapfit, by @tbsdubai #Barrysbootcamp

We can CHANGE the ATMOSPHERE of our environments. In a world where negativity is the norm, WE can be the voice of LOVE, the voice of HOPE, we can be the LIGHT and RAINBOW when everything and everyone feels dark and heavy. . It's to speak up and change the direction of the convo when things go all sucky and complaining. . It's to focus on what we have and what we can share when everyone else focuses on what we don't have and can't consume. . It's to inject the convo with love, when someone gets bullied online or in person and be that person to help him/her up. . It's to interrupt our own defeating self talk with thoughts of "But what if I can?" and "Keep on going, I love you!" when we are dealing with our own challenges. . I want to be a person like this! Someone who changes the atmosphere not only of my own heart, but also the hearts around me! Have an amazing day, my friends! #saltoftheearth #asherowithapurpose #andofcourse #therainbowismyfavecolor
