Teresina: What is “Ride 4 Your Life”?

Ride 4 Your Life! is a program that developed in my life as a result of overcoming chronic fatigue, self-deprecation, an injured knee, and ultimately, fear of becoming FAT. It became a way of life, a day-to-day application of putting my efforts where they would get me the best results, physically and mentally. It has become a way to strengthen my body without re-injury, not be fat, and still be able to EAT.

I believe there is a great need to change our perceptions of working out, what it is, how to do it, how to find the time, and what it means. R4YL! is not just a workout, it’s a philosophy: A fierce belief that you can have what you want in all areas of your life. It’s a reinvention of how you feel about yourself, how you feel about food, how you can cultivate a new attitude, and once and for all take off excess weight and keep it off.

R4YL! is a PLAN –– a life-long plan that you can follow. It doesn’t mean you cannot do other things, and I hope that as you get stronger, and more in tune with your body you will, but this is the groundwork. Perhaps you’ve been asking, even praying for an answer? If you just knew what to do, and how to get started. Pretend for a moment that this just might be the solution. The Plan!

Certainly, if health problems or injuries are preventing you from being fit, then this program is for you. That’s why it’s called Ride 4 Your Life! Literally, you are riding for your life! Riding away from a slow metabolism, bad circulation, heart disease, extra pounds and the hospital! R4YL! strives for balance by working the entire body. R4YL! promotes movement as the catalyst for complete unity of body, mind, and spirit. Without it, we have difficulty functioning properly and effectively. It safely challenges all of our muscles, getting results quickly so that we truly feel this synergy. The spirit will thrive, the mind will gain clarity, the body’s tensions will relax, and the metabolism will race with R4YL!

“I’ve learned so much about my own strength, not just physically, but mentally as well, and about how the two are connected. The bike workout has started to shape my whole body physically and has elevated my mood as well.”
