You've probably heard the saying, 'You are what you eat' and guess what -- it is SO true! That's why it is imparative that we fuel our bodies with the best food possible so we can perform our best -- mentally and physically.
One of my FAVORITE superfoods is blueberries - I have them each and every morning with my oatmeal (my personal fave is Three Sisters oatmeal from Whole Foods. It's organic, low in sugar and delish!)
WHY THEY’RE SUPER!
84 calories per cup, a serving of berries contains 14 percent of the suggested daily fiber and 24 percent of the suggested daily intake of Vitamin C. But it gets better. Research suggests blueberries deliver some even more powerful and long-lasting health benefits. One study found that consuming a cup of blueberries per week can lower blood pressure and perhaps speed up metabolism, due mostly to their high levels of anthocyanins (a type of antioxidant). Another study suggests blueberries can lower levels of LDL (the bad cholesterol), potentially reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. Blueberries may also inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells.

The demand for the April 19th PiYo certification was INCREDIBLE! So incredible, that the 56 registrants have maxed out the space at Purdue...soo...that means we'll split up the certification and offer a SECOND PiYo certification!
The new PiYo certification date is MAY 10TH and will be held at the Fishers YMCA. That training will go LIVE today and should be open for registrations by end of business day today. Just go to www.julievoris.com/get-certified for more information on how to register!!
Who is excited?!
It's been a long winter in Indiana....and right now, I could be aboard an amazing ship, sailing off to exotic destinations. The SS Beachbody set sail yesterday, heading to Cozumel and the Grand Cayman Islands, both places I've never been. Beachbody has the ENTIRE ship...which means that boat is filled with so much incredible energy, so many positive passionate people...it will be an unforgettable experience. i have so many coaches on the trip, folks who've worked hard, who've shared their passion, who've focused, set goals, and made it happen...I am so so so proud of their hard work and passion for helping others.
I chose to sit this trip out. It's nearly impossible to take two high schoolers and one middle schooler out of school for a week. Jenna is going into her World Guard International competition and needs to be here for practice. Josie has dance. Jessy is just now recovering from her concussion and getting back into her regular schedule. So they're all out.
Maybe it could have been a trip for Coach Hubby and me! Except that it's Butler Spring Football practice with the spring scrimmage on Saturday. So he's out.
Hmmmm that leaves me. My family has never cruised before and it just did not feel right to go on this amazing experience without the people for whom I am building this business. Even though I know this trip will be absolutely phenomenal....even though Beachbody does everything top notch....even though as an Elite Coach, I'd have some pretty cool perks on the ship....I could not go on this adventure without my family.
So I send good wishes for an incredible journey to my coaches. I will enjoy this trip through their pictures and enjoy knowing they are being rewarded for their hard work.
I know that this week, I am right where I am supposed to be.
If you've ever taken a class or certification of mine, you've probably heard me say, "You've got to get uncomfortable." When you get out of your comfort zone you'll grow. Well I had to take my own advice this week and get uncomfortable.
I have no problem getting in front of 100+ people at the Fishers YMCA to teach a class -- or even in front of 250 people during a certification like I did last year in Las Vegas -- but have me sit down and talk, that's where the nerves kick in. I'm MUCH more comfortable when I can MOVE. But this week, I got uncomfortable and I'm SO grateful for the experience.
WISH-TV's morning news anchor, Lauren Lowrey, came to the Fishers YMCA to get a sneak peek at what we are all about and allowed me to share my passion for fitness! I still get goosebumps when I teach class...I still believe all of us are capable of doing more and BEING more...I still believe fitness is non-negotiable and it's up to us to make it happen in a way that works for us....I still love love love my job...I still get so inspired by by class members...I still aspire to make a difference every dang day.
So, yes I was uncomfortable at times. But yes, it was TOTALLY worth it!
Tune in to WISH-TV on April 1 to see the interview!
