Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back. ®

What is Relay?

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in the community a chance to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school and take turns walking or running around the track. Each team is asked to have a rep. on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours long.

Each year, more than 3.5 million people in more than 5,000 communities in the U.S., along with additional communities in 19 other countries, gather to take part in this global phenomenon and raise as much needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. Thanks to Relay participants, we are creating a world with more birthdays–a world where cancer never steals another year of anyone’s life.

Celebrating Survivors

A survivor is anyone who has ever heard the words “You have cancer.” We invite all cancer survivors in the community to attend Relay for Life because they are the reason we Relay.

Our goal is to create a world where more people survive cancer–so they can celebrate another birthday. This year, more than 11 million people will be able to do that thanks to the support of millions of dedicated Relay participants.

Survivors are the guests of honor at Relay. Relay events may offer survivors special T-shirts or sashes or hold a special reception for survivors and caregivers. Most Relays open with the Survivors Lap, where survivors lead the way around the track while participants honor and applaud them. Being a part of the Survivors Lap allows survivors to celebrate what they’ve overcome while inspiring and motivating their community to fight. Survivors are proof that cancer can be defeated. For more information on how to participate in this year’s Survivors Lap or other activities, please visit RelayForLife.org.

A Chance to Remember

One important aspect of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the opportunity for people to come together to remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those who have won their battle. One of the most moving parts of the event is the Luminaria Ceremony.

As the sun sets over campsites and darkness falls, the night is brightened by the glow of illuminated bags called luminaria, each bearing the name of someone who has battled cancer. Some celebrate cancer survivors, while others help us honor and remember those gone too soon. All represent someone special who has been profoundly affected by cancer and the family and friends who continue to fight back in their honor.

Would you like to honor or remember someone with a luminaria during the Relay For Life? Visit RelayForLife.org to learn more about this special part of Relay events.

Why Relay?

Everyone’s reason for Relay is as unique as the own personal story. At Relay, you can find healing, comfort, prayers, and support from others who have faced cancer or have lost a loved one to the disease. You have a chance to meet people in the community who are equally as passionate about finding an end to cancer. You can thank all the people who have done so much to support you through your personal cancer experience. And you can gather together with friends, family, and colleagues to laugh, cry, and create lasting memories.

No matter why you take part in Relay, however, one thing is clear: with every step you take, you help the American Cancer Society saves lives. With your help, we aren’t just fighting one type of cancer—we’re fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. Each person who shares the Relay experience can take pride in knowing that they are working to create a world where this disease will no longer threaten the lives of our loved ones or steal another year of anyone’s life.

Where does the money go?

Over the past 12 months the American Cancer Society in Western, NY:
–Provided 5,000 rides that were given to cancer patients to and from their treatment appointments
–Provided 400 free wigs to women…193 female cancer patients attended a Look Good Feel Better sessions to address the cosmetic affects of treatment. They each received a free make-uo and skin care valued at $250.
–Provided emergency assistance to approx. 250 patients for mileage reimbursement to and from their treatment.
–Placed a patient navigator within Roswell Park Cancer Institute providing one on one support and information to patients and loved ones.
–Funded $5.5 million dollars to researchers at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and an additional $2.5 million dollars to researches at the University of Buffalo.
–Approx. 3,000 individuals (people with a cancer dx., family members, and friends) looked to the American Cancer Society for information about dx., treatment, support services, and other services available.

Ways to get involved

AFAA–Aerobic and Fitness Association of America Certification

To be certified or not to be certified that is the question????????????

A question I will answer over and over and over again!!!!  YES, YES, YES, and YES!!!  Their is a beauty and a professionalism to deliver quality classes to our students. Yes we can have an extraordinary routine, choreography, techniques, whatever.  If we don’t perform correctly people are liable to get hurt.  I would highly recommend AFAA to anyone who is looking for an organization to grow with in the ever-changing daily fitness field educating its members with all possible resources. I have and continue to learn something new every day and I am thankful to sow into others lives nuggets of information that is beneficial to the participant life today and in the long run.  Our bodies are so amazing if we don’t care for them no one else will. I am so thankful to be a part of AFAA!  If you were on the fence about which Certification to go for?  I highly recommend AFAA..No Doubt About It!!  I hope this helps : )

AFAA CERTIFICATION

THE WRITTEN

The day I went for my testing for my AFAA Certification definitely up there with the nervousness I felt when I went to bootcamp for US Customs.  Seriously, the nerves were racked.  Let me tell you if you think you can go in there without studying the material and take that written test..your crazy!  Flat out CRAZY!  I remember taking exams after each section of homeland security section and we can know and understand if we have not or will not think of it, someone else most certainly will.  Be mindful to know every possibility of the wrong answer to the practice test and then some.  That right there is the best help one could give…6 Long, Long, Long, Long Weeks I passed the written—WOW!!  =D

THE PRACTICAL

A very, very, very humbling experience…Thinking I got this after the short break after that scary test! (No worries if I could do it you can too..don’t let me scare you too much..just STUDY!) I walked into the practical like a hot shot sayin I got this.  Not knowing and make a note of this.  Learn from my mistakes..for each body part I had to perform two exercises for each section and did I tell you I did not know this.  I did one exercise for each section and wondered why mine seemed super long as others around me were doing so many different moves.  (Everyone at this point looks like they are dancing in their living  rooms to the Old Time Rock and Roll =D Love it!!  So yeah, I wasn’t even told what I did wrong..just six weeks I got the big FAILED :”'( Practical results.  Talk about a damper on my career..what was wrong with me I questioned.  Not getting the best of me a month later took a shot at it again..Soul shakin and earth trembling when in there ready to conquor, take on the work and would you know same ol pair of jeans went in there with the same mistake..6 weeks later FAIL 🙁 Okay, wasn’t meant to do this forget it, I am done, the earth shattering my world 🙁 With a pick me up from my soul support, my amazing husband encouraged me to do it again..I did I booked it!  I went in the 3rd time..3rd times a charm right???  Well, the day I had my retest was the day we had our practice for our Christmas play so there was no better place to be than New Covenant right before :’)  Walking into the aquatic center I noticed it was the same instructor I had at the second certification.  I did not feel easy about this at first in fact I wanted to run out the door.  No, this was in fact a Blessing!  What she said to me as soon as I walked in I must have seriously looked like a deer in headlights!  She said, do you know why you failed last time?  Ahhhhhh, she remembers me I thought!!  I said, I didn’t do my Individual presentation correctly?????  She said no, and she said if you had me as an instructor the first time I would have never been there the second time.  That was encouraging she then had me perform two exercises for each group prior to actually doing our practical.  So there were many blessings in disguise this day and my experience has been great.  Six looooong weeks later, even though this time I did feel confident enough that I had passed.  Just that need to see that PASS finally was the yearn I needed to fulfill!!  This journey, this entire road is an incredible learning experience of my personal growth and experience.  Not only does this make my career as a Zumba Fitness Instructor right here in Buffalo, NY more rewarding and effective but it sets the stage of what the future possibilities hold in store for my health and fitness destination.  I Love What I Do and I Love the People I am growing with every day!

THE INDIVIDUAL PRESENTATION

Keep it simple…teach your class what works best for your body and that you can kick butt teaching in your class.  This should be the easiest part because you are doing this to teach your class, right!?! =D If this is a read before your are going for your exam like the many, many articles I needed to read time and time again prior to each and every testing 😛 Have faith and know you got this!  If your are that nervous you can borrow mine….Now Go Get Certified!!!!! =D

I will be putting a bucket out at my Zumba classes so you can bring them there for your convenience, or if I see you in passing please feel free to contribute as well! Every cent will support our Troops! I will hold a penny rolling party in the summer some cold refreshments with burgers and dogs and lots of pennies!! Stayed tuned for updates as well as pictures!!

Curves of Akron adds Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness® classes
Posted on January 20, 2011 by joscelynn

This article was in the Akron Bugle.

Curves of Akron is willing to let local residents try a new circuit with includes Zumba Fitness® classes free for a week to find out how it can help with fitness and weight loss plans in 2011.

“Millions have lost weight and shaped up with Curves, the leader in women’s fitness and Zumba, the dance-fitness expert,” an Akron Curves staff member notes. “Now the two have created the only 30 minute class that mixes the moves of Zumba with proven strength training of Curves for one wildy effective workout. It’s definitely not your Mother’s workout but even your Mother can do it!”

“Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness is an amazing workout that will really help people stick to their New Year’s resolutions,” said a Curves of Akron staff member. “It combines Curves’ proven strength training program where you can burn up to 500 calories in just 30 minutes with the Latin and international inspired music and exhilarating, simple dance moves that have made Zumba so popular. We want you to experience it for yourself to see what an incredible workout it is, so we’re inviting Akron residents to try it FREE FOR ONE WEEK.”

The benefits of Curves Circuit with Zumba classes are numerous, according to Curves Director of Exercise and Research, Katie Mitchell. “This is definitely a boredom-busting workout,” said Mitchell. “There’s a lot going on to keep your attention and keep you motivated. You’re listening to high-energy music that just makes you want to move, watching to make sure you’re meeting your goals on the strength machines and training your body and your brain by learning new dance moves. And research shows that the dynamics of group exercise like the Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness classes promotes attendance and lowers drop out rates, so people are more likely to stick with it”

All ages, fitness levels and dance abilities can participate in and benefit from Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness classes. During the 30 minute class, participants work out on each Curves strength machine for one minute, alternating upper, lower and and core muscles After one minute, the music cues the participant to change stations on the circuit and she moves to an area between machines to do Zumba moves, which tone and sculpt the body while burning fat. A licensed Zumba instructor (Joscelynn Baio) from the the Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN) teaches simple, modified Zumba moves from the center of the circuit.

At the end of 30 minutes participants have completed one trip around the entire circuit, worked every major muscle group and achieved a fun, energetic cardio workout ending with a group stretch led by the Zumba instructor.

For more information about Curves of Akron and Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness class schedules, please call Lee Ann Dusseault 716-542-5615.

Bringing new flavor to the Curves of Akron, NY with our Hot, New, Fun Dance Fitness Party, called Zumba!!!!!!!!!!! Where the Circuit meets The Party!! It’s your party, I am just the planner!

With Lots of Love,
Your Zumba in the Circuit Fitness Instructor,
Joscelynn Baio.

Comments:
Federal Trade Commission/Office of the Secretary, Room H-135 (Annex W) Re: Business Opportunity Rule, R511993 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. 20580 Re: Business Opportunity Rule, R511993 Ladies and Gentlemen: I am an independent distributor of 4Life Research USA, LLC (“4Life”). 4Life is a company that manufactures high quality dietary supplement products and markets those products through a network of independent distributors. My family depends on the extra income that I earn as an independent distributor of 4Life. I am writing this letter because I am concerned about proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993. I believe that in its present form, it could prevent me from continuing as an independent distributor of 4Life. I understand and appreciate that part of the FTC’s responsibility is to protect the public from “unfair and deceptive acts or practices,” but some of the sections in the proposed rule will make it very difficult, if not impossible, for me to sell 4Life products. One of the most confusing and burdensome sections of the proposed rule is the seven day waiting period to enroll new distributors. 4Life’s sales kits only cost $29.95. People buy televisions, cars, and other items that cost much more than the price of a 4Life sales kit, and they do not have to wait seven days. This waiting period gives the impression that there might be something wrong with the compensation plan. I also think this seven day waiting period is unnecessary because 4Life already has a 90% buy-back policy for all products, including sales kits purchased by a salesperson within the last twelve months. Under this waiting period requirement, I will need to keep very detailed records when I first speak to someone about 4Life, and will then have to send in many reports to 4Life’s headquarters. The proposed rule also calls for the release of any information regarding lawsuits involving misrepresentation or unfair or deceptive practices. It does not matter if the company was found innocent. In today’s legal environment, anyone or any company can be sued for almost anything. It does not make sense to me that I would have to disclose these lawsuits unless 4Life is found guilty. I believe this would place 4Life and me at an unfair advantage even though 4Life has done nothing wrong. Finally, the proposed rule requires the disclosure of a minimum of 10 prior purchasers nearest to the prospective purchaser. I am glad to provide references, but in this day of identity theft I am very uncomfortable giving out the personal information of individuals to strangers, even with their prior approval. Also, giving away this information could damage the business relationship of the references who may be involved in other companies or businesses, including those of competitors. In order to get the list of the 10 prior purchasers, I will need to send the address of the prospective purchaser to 4Life’s headquarters and then wait for the list. I also think the following sentence required by the proposed rule will prevent many people from wanting to sign up as a salesperson “if you buy a business opportunity from the seller, your contact information can be disclosed in the future to other buyers.” People are very concerned about their privacy and identity theft and will be very reluctant to share their personal information with individuals they may have never met. I appreciate the work of the FTC to protect consumers, but I believe this proposed new rule has many unintended consequences and that there are less burdensome alternatives available in achieving its goals. I respectfully request that the proposed Business Opportunity Rule R511993 not be adopted; or, alternative, direct selling companies receive an exemption from the Rule. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Joscelynn Ann Baio Â

Do You? A Very Important Question…

I know you are probably thinking I am going to ask do you drink enough water every day! Although, you do know that is VERY important to me and you really need to be mindful that our body craves water like crazy. Little to it..you’ll see when you body truly does want some water it’s pretty incredible to tune into this reality and it feels so good to accomplish.

The human body is anywhere from 55% to 78% water depending on body size. A rule of thumb, 2/3 of body is consists of water, and it is the main component of human body. Did you know that your tissues and organs are mainly made up of water? Here is the %: Muscle consists of 75% water Brain consists of 90% of water Bone consists of 22% of water Blood consists of 83% water The functions of water in human body are vital. The water: Transports nutrients and oxygen into cells Moisturizes the air in lungs Helps with metabolism Protects our vital organ Helps our organs to absorb nutrients better Regulates body temperature Detoxifies Protects and moisturizes our joints Every cell in your body needs water from head to toe. That is why it is so important to drink enough fluid. Take for example, brain consists of 90% of water, if you do not supply enough water to your body, your brain cannot function well, and you will get headache or migraine. Hence, next time, if you feel fatigue and headache, it may be the sign of dehydration.

Important information and guidelines are published by American College and Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

Communication

Some where in this world we lack this one special trait..The ability to tie a relationship in a knot. It pains me to be even remotely involve in that there lack of talking to one another. We are each put in eachother’s lives for a reason and that is to talk it out, talk it through, talk it up, talk it good. Is it always easy with oil and water to come together…no but isn’t it fun to shake it up? I feel there is so much hurt and pain that we go through in life that the best way to resolve any thing is to sweep it under the carpet or shun it away…That hurts sooooooo much! I don’t want to be shunned away..do you? When people love you or someone truly cares shouldn’t we think twice about what is important to the other person? Again, I know this is hard in our every day hustle and bustle but we need to make that time. Use our precious moments wisely. I once knew someone who never wanted to talk about any thing basically acted as though nothing is important and continued on with their life in their world. As you can guess that relationship did not last. I have learned we need to be true to ourselves before we can be true to anyone else. There is nothing any one person can do or say to hurt our character. We are who we are and made up to who we are to be. I think a lot of truth relies souly on us expressing what we truly feel and if it is not to the one’s we trust the most then we need to find a trusted friend to confide in. Keeping stuff in is not only harmful to self but harmful to those around us or those involved. I want to say almost like a poison or of what the enemy wants us to believe..the deceit to destroy us. We are soooooooooo much more than that. We are such special human beings with yes a heart not one to be danced around, covered up, smoothered, ignored, broken, or destroyed. I am talking about letting it out, living it up, dance with, embraced, fullfilled, lifted up, rejoiced! We are all in this together people..find out what the person next to you is hurting about they will not bite you and if they do there is another person who is willing to share..don’t give up on the biter either go back they need you and you need them too LOL Let me know what your thoughts are…we all have plenty and just for that brief moment of what comes to mind let’s keep it positive thoughts. Those that actually get us through thick and thin. Let’s chat! =D Happy Thoughts~

Benefits of Zumba Dance Fitness

Benefits of Zumba Dance Fitness

The most common cause for people putting a break to their exercise is boredom and lack of time. Zumba has the ability to solve both these problems by offering a complete body workout in just a single session, thus making exercise fun. With the beats of lively music the mood goes amazingly upbeat in any Zumba exercise class. As the dance classes are quite exciting time flies quickly. Most people once enter the classes want to continue them and watch the positive results. The many benefits of Zumba Fitness include:

1. Helps in relieving stress. Zumba dance is all about let go your inhibitions and even losing yourself in the dance movements. The energetic movements not only help in the release of endorphins that help in altering mood, but also help to melt away your worries as you drop yourself down in the zumba music and movements.

2. Aids in toning the abdominal. Many dance moves in this form of dance aid in working on the core muscles of the abdomen. The restraint of muscles involved in the dance movements gives the pelvis strength and power. This results in firming up of the abdominals and a reduced risk of back pain.

3. Helps in weight loss. Zumba is a great workout that helps in burning body fat and aids in weight loss. the number of calories burned in each workout differs from person to person and depends on their age, weight, fitness level, and intensity put forward. One hour of Zumba dance workout helps in burning about six hundred to one thousand calories. Practicing alternating intervals of low and high intensity levels helps you to burn more calories in each workout.

4. Provides benefits of interval training.
Zumba dance offers the benefits of interval training which is one of the most excellent ways to burn calories. Zumba integrates the theories of interval training in each and every workout by making use of alternating slow and fast sequences that aid in varying the intensity of workout after sometime.

5. Aids to change the whole body.
Regular sessions of Zumba dance have the ability to reshape and refresh all parts of the body, like the hips, arms, the heart, and the mind.

6. Releases toxins form the body.
A Zumba workout helps in releasing a lot of sweat along with which all toxins are released from the body.

After knowing one true simple fact about Zumba you will wish to get started in Joscelynn Baio’s Zumba Class every Tuesday and Thursday @ 7pm.

New Year, New You!!

Things I am thankful for 2010…

I am so Blessed for the Family you gave me God, Thank you! =”)Watching our children grow and being the parents we are Blessed to be 2010 has been an amazing year.

In January of 2010, the New Year I am fired up with my business with 4Life.  The things still until this day I am so passionate for.  Helping others is my passion and 4Life is the answer. While having the ability to be with my children at home and raise them myself and not needing to have them in daycare is incredible.  I love that everyone has the opportunity for the same lifestyle that I am Blessed to live.  My job to share this with you is extremely rewarding.

May 2010, I was introduced by my friend Allecia, the Zumba Latin Dance Fitness Opportunity.  Her profession as an instructor intrigued me in many ways.  Having my home based business with 4Life Research and helping others through health I understand the importance of fitness and Allecia and I being the fitness buffs we were when we were growing up.  Allecia truly inspired me to pursue this career.

Summer 2010, truly a busy season I really took seriously the ability to help others thru Health and Fitness.  I first got certified in June for my Zumba Gold certification. Then in July I became certified in my Zumba B1 certification.  In the midst of these accomplishments I studied diligently to gain my AFFA (Aerobics and Fitness Associations of America) Group exercise certification as well as my Red Cross cpr/aed certification.

September was the launch of my new career..I have never felt I was meant to be doing something so much as I was to start teaching my Zumba Fitness Class.  My class started with pretty incredible people and still until this day old friends and new friends continue to be a part of something that is so helpful to their health and well being.  The movement is so highly rewarding.

November 2010, the gyms called Curves all across the world was just introduced at their convention the partnership with Zumba.  Where the party meets the circuit!  Zumba in the Circuit. I was approach by a Curves owen in Akron, NY to become a part of her gym to teach Zumba at her location.  Just barely hearing of this partnership on the Zumba end I realized something cool was about to happen.  As life happens, I have come to enjoy change, in fact my advice is to welcome it.  Most people I have learned myself included do not like the movement in another direction.  Until we realize we must go with that we are pretty much stuck in a rut.  Make that difference, make that change!  If I can do it so can you!!

December 2010, I was so excited to hear more about Curves and Zumba and starting to get more and more contacts by Curves owners all over Buffalo, NY to be their girl.  I respected my Curves owner Lee Ann in Akron, NY even more because she holds the same desire, passion, and goals familiar to make things happen like myself with her persistence to find someone as early as she got home from the Curves convention to get this huge opportunity with Zumba in the Circuit going.  I love that!  Let’s get it done!!

I am not done…this is just the beginning!  As I continue to help others gain perspective and grow just as I do, today I continue to work on my Health & Fitness Lifestyle Certification through Spencer Institute to diligently gain knowledge and intelligence and continue to help others help themselves with our ever changing daily health and fitness industries.  If we don’t read and learn and take care of our bodies no one else will that is our simple truth and reality.

Personal growth is the most rewarding gift we can endure every passing second…

Coming from a message from our Pastor Dave Rojas and a passion I hold onto for this New Year and years to come…I choose to not be successful, I choose to be faithful in everything I do!!

Happy, Blessed, Prosperous New Year to All my Family and Friends..new and old!!  Let make it a GREAT year in all the days to come.  Together, let’s make a difference..together let’s make a change!!

With Lots of Love,

Joscelynn Baio

An Important Truth about Turkey Bacon

Hmmmmmm…

TURKEY BACON
Pork bacon’s got a bad rap for wreaking havoc on your cholesterol. But is turkey bacon really any better?

The Truth: Stick with the pig. As far as calories go, the difference between “healthy” turkey bacon and “fatty” pig is negligible—and depending on the slice, turkey might sometimes tip the scales a touch more. Additionally, while turkey is indeed a leaner meat, turkey bacon isn’t made from 100 percent bird: One look at the ingredients list will show a long line of suspicious additives and extras that can’t possibly add anything of nutritional value. And finally, the sodium content of the turkey bacon is actually higher than what you’ll find in the kind that oinks—so if you’re worried about your blood pressure, opting for the original version is usually the smarter move.

Eat This Instead: Regular bacon. We like Hormel Black Label and Oscar Mayer Center Cut bacon for some low-cal, low-additive options.

The Truth About Your Weight Gain

By David Zinczenko
Dec 21, 2010

Imagine the Growth

For a long time I have felt something that has kept me back from doing a lot of things. I have always wanted more in life. Not more materialistically because I really didn’t come from that type of background. Wanting more was to want betterment not just in my life but the lives of others. Heartache and strife that we endure in our lives is the mere thing that leads us to where we are today for sure. Do we want to stay there is the question? Was being the person you were the dream you wanted to come true as a child? Or the question in Kindergarten..What do you want to be when you grow up? Was that just a silly activity we did back then or is it really life’s learning lesson? I enjoy the fact that we all have our own joys, pains, sorrows, hurts, excitements and just goes to show we truly are no alone! There is not one person that we cannot relate to, talk with, learn about that we can always share in eachother’s lives. As I have said probably many times before. It is not about the problems or situations that experience it is how we deal with them makes all the difference. There was always a crutch that always held me back that held me from pursuing the desires of my heart. I do now know and understand today that crutch was in fact fear.

The freedom to be able to speak my heart with no one or nothing to be in the way of what has been encapsulated for many years, my whole entire life. The opportunities we all have in our beings are so unfathomable..to treasure to not preserve but perservere with! There is a place for prayers to be heard and the very same place they may be answered..the temple in which we dwell. We reap what we sow is not a materialistic verse in the bible where I do see where most would believe in just mere money or objects. No what I want to reiterate sowing for the body is incredible. I had no idea truly what this body is capable of. There truly is no cap as I tell my clients..do not put a cap on what you are capable of doing…EVER! I have been told after my Zumba Fitness Class I never know I could move like this and I tell them that very thing…We all get caught up in our every day routine that is not the point. Try to dance out of that from time to time and I don’t care where you choose to do this but reflect on where you are and where you are going..Listen to that amazing body of yours..It is a Temple and is to be loved, nutured, cherished, care for..The body will always tell you what feels amazing and what needs work. Have you ever heard the saying, our body is like a car or machine? Our bodies need fuel to grow………………………………

I do not want to run off subject here..What ever your hearts desire is..whatever passion you are given..never lose faith in that.  In fact, hold on and hold on tight!  Will things come your way that are rediculous, out of reach, hard as nails?  YES!!  Can you get through it?  YES!!  In fact, you go over it!!  Will you get through it?  ABSOLUTELY!! Truthfully, around a speed bump helps the car I would think any way! =D You are NEVER EVER ALONE.  Never in a million years and silly me for even saying the timeline..Just never okay! =P You got this and whatever you want to accomplish you will…No Worries!!  I am really so Blessed by people whom are in my life, will be in my life, and have been in my life are always and forever! As well as never, ever forgotten! Be Blessed!! Much Love to Old Friends and New Friends!! xoxo JB

What is Zumba?

Already six months that I have been a part of the Zumba Family. I have to say what an incredible journey this is and to know it is just the beginning..just a baby still this excites me on the inside so much!! :”’)) I have learned that being a part of Zumba we are all connected in this special way…Like we are family! You know when you go to a wedding and get down and boogy with all family and friends you may have never even met before. Just a thought Zumba is even more awesome than that because the party does not end. I just had a client ask me yesterday..Do you plan on doing this for a long time? I really don’t want you to go anywhere :””’)) Really??? How could someone not absolutely enjoy this…If I were doing this for free for the rest of my life I would that right there people that come into our lives is priceless..No money could create lasting relationships like this! There are instructors out there that are in there 60s, I even know of and instructor that is in her 70s and even fought off breast cancer!! You are not kidding!! GO GIRL!!!!! I am so proud of her and I don’t even know her. So yeah you can see old Joscelynn Baio still teaching Zumba Fitness Classes here in Buffalo, NY 70 years from now…Okay, I’d be a 100 year then..maybe not that old!! Hahahahahahah

I have come to learn my profession a lot of people truly don’t know of this new Zumba Fitness craze. When I first got involved with Zumba I thought it was already HUGE! Little did I know I was now a part of a movement and this Latin Dance Fitness is just a baby! Slowly, moving up the East Coast, Zumba started in Miami Florida by a smart business man and amazing dance Beto Perez. Beto, was born in Columbia and came to the states with his incredible Latin flavor.

Zumba to me is fun, exciting, life changing, incredible, inviting, sassy, amazing…I can go on and on. I started working out after my second child. With Zumba I lost 52 pounds I am back to the weight I was almost 10 years ago. A Zumba dancer can lose 500-1,000 calories per class depending on how hard one works at it…I am all about in the beginning slow progression leads to results.

I know for a fact this is not only affective in weight loss. It is definately what I needed not having much time to do something for myself and a way to go out and have fun with people who want to do the same. There is no greater feeling than standing there in front of the room and seeing the smiling faces along with some awesome tunes we are dancing to and having a blast together.

So what is Zumba you ask..Zumba is the exercise that you cannot wait to do again..It is in fact addicting! The thought of going to the gym seriously made me exhausted just thinking about it. I do not like the monthly gym fees either. Zumba with Joscelynn in Buffalo, New York at New Covenant Tabernacle Buffalo, NY. avoids all that too. You can count on getting an amazing workout and burning at least 500 calories to 1,000. You will leave the class feeling energized and excited. I usually get my entire house cleaned when I get home. Lol Okay, in the beginning it was not always like this I was tired out in the beginning. After doing Zumba consistently I was most certainly gaining incredible endurance. The workout just gets better and better every time!

So if you are looking to lose weight..Hang with friends who are fun to be with..Feeling of a night out on the town..Ditch the Workout and Join the Party! You will see when you come out that we got it goin on!! I know for a fact you will have a blast!! See you there!

Your Partner In Success, Joscelynn Baio =))

Wavelength

What are your dreams, your goals, your desires, your passion, your greatest excitement?

Do you have something you have been writing in a journal since you were younger that you have been rewriting over and over again that you would just be over joyed if that came true? Have you been wanting to do something that you know you should do or that your really want to do but just have not done it? What is it that your heart longs for…what is it that you want to do or accomplish in this here life? What moves you?

I have to say I do not know if we could possibly be on the same wavelength. In fact, I do not believe two people could ever be on that same pattern. What I feel is that could most certainly be created when two or more people agree on something or accomplish something together. That something could be as small or as big as anyone would want their outcome to be. Me I want more, I strive like most, my heart longs to help others and better my life as best as I can. Happiness is the most empowering thing one could endure!

If there is something you want more than anything in this here life, tell me…If there is something you want to accomplish share with me..If you have the drive to do something you have never done before and know that if and when you do that you will be all that more a better you!

I have been working with a company 4Life and seriously there are a lot of companies out there that have so many products out there I can see where people get all discouraged with what works and what doesn’t. I can assure you Transfer Factor is the ONE and only true love! Do you really like getting sick or do you like being sick? Seriously, that is how I feel people must really not care about there health at all because seriously every body should be taking Transfer Factor..your dog, your kids, your cats, even your horses, and yes even you! =))

If you don’t take care of yourself, who will?? So yeah, I truly recommend taking Transfer Factor and giving it to the entire family. It never mattered to me more now with my kid in school. Those of you who send off your children to school hacking all over my kids. Listen, you’re inconsiderate and you really need to become more protected and be mindful of others. No one wants your stinkin germs! Now that I got that off my chest you can make your difference in yours and your families lives by being proactive rather than reactive. Order yours now http://www.freedombeginswithin.my4life.com

Again, we may not be on the same wavelength and I get that but what I hold here with 4Life and the opportunity to help others one person at a time is very well what we do together. So sharing the good news of building one’s immune system allows us to make a little income for ourselves and will be as big as you want it to become. I know we are all in different seasons in life a common goal could align us and help us to accomplish greater good together so let me know if this could be something you would love to grow with. The greatest rewards are self-fulfillment and personal growth…There are no two better feelings that are more to the truth to me to look back at my life and be so excited at where I am today and 10 or 20 years from now I have the ability to do just the same. Which means more growth is available to all of us! How exciting is that??

A great mentor of mine, Michael Bernoff could not have said it better. I don’t remember where he said he heard it but he said, “do you know where the most money is found? Oy, where do you think? Folks, the graveyard!” WOW!!!! Talk about heaviness on a statement. It is so true, we have so many gifts and talents and so many opportunities to accomplish many things that so easily we can let them slip right out of our lives. In fact, I could be missing something right now as we speak, I hope not and try not to but who doesn’t. =P As you have read in previous posts I have lost too many people in my life, near and dear to me making the statement above very true and clear. I used to have very I will call it clean cut mottos like we all hold at least one..which is kinda clever how we can come up with something on the quickness from our mind to define our lives…Hahah “my motto is…….”Just silly!! Well, what’s yours?? I really want to know what you come up with when you said those worlds?? Come on let’s have some fun with this!! =)) So yeah, those of you who don’t know me my motto is…I don’t want to regret not doing something in this here life!!!

As you know health and fitness are soooooooo important to me those with a physical or mental challenge there is definately targeted Transfer Factor for you too..just go under “Targeted Transfer Factor” on site above. I guarentee you when you try these products you will see what the heck I am raving about..I can only share the good news with you..you actually have to take the next step to help your life and the life of those near and dear to you. Or even complete strangers for that matter…

Which brings me to Zumba!! =)) Wow, I never in my wildest dreams be telling you how much I love my job!! Zumba is incredible, just incredible…There is no better feeling waking up every morning know I am helping people. I would teach a class 10 times a day, every day if possible…Though it is not possible I will enjoy every second with each and everyone of my students. Those smiling faces up there enjoying the good times we have, dancing to Zumba Latin rythms, doing something incredible for ourselves, for our bodies, is absolutely priceless!! Do you want to lose weight? Do want a healthier lifestyle? Do you want tight abs? A toned body? More energy? Feel better, Look better, Be sassier, Sleep better? Eat healthier? Get the results you have been longing for too long now? I know for a fact we have what you are looking for..In fact I have recently lost a total of 52 pounds with Zumba in less than 12 months after the birth of our second child. I know for a fact you can too!! I have seen it, I witnessed it, I am living it!! I am so excited to see your results too! That is THE Greatest Feeling of All!!

So whether you are looking to better your life with health, fitness, or finances all is totally on our side..Are you willing to take that next step? Doing what it takes to accomplish where you want to be and become all that your destined to become and more…If so come work with me I am your girl, the answer you have been looking for! The one who will support you no matter what and help to assist to get and achieve the higher goals you w achieve. Together, we can achieve greater heights together!

Let me know if I could help out in any way with Zumba classes as well…For a good cause I am willing to hold Zumba parties as a benefit to help others, help raise awareness to the cause, as well as charities to help those in need. If you invite others to a Zumba event I can assure you your response will definately be excitement =D Talk to me…tell me how I can help and let’s get it done!

When I say we are all in this together I mean it…We are one Love, one Life, one Passion, United that’s how we do! Much Love from my heart to yours! Sound too mushy or you don’t like it…Anyways, I love you too!!=)) xoxoxoxo

Buffalo New York Z.I.N. Member

I hit the jackpot…Jaaaaajaaaajaaaaackpot…Cha ching
Okay so I am super excited right now it has been some odd months now that I have become a part of the our “ZUMBA INSTRUCTOR NETWORK.” You know it is very healthy to have the access to this site for us instructors there is no doubt about it. I am just so excited right now I have just cracked my beautiful folder Zumba had given all of us instructors and would you know there inside this beautiful metallic folder in foil lettering there is a “NEW Instructor CD and DVD of Choreography of an entire one hour session of ZUMBA!! Oh my Goodness today is Christmas to me…Look out class exciting things are on the horizon!!!!!! I am soooooo excited and I just can’t hide it!!!!! =D

Yes as you can see I am stamped with the Zin Logo…What does that mean to you, you ask? I give major shot outs to all Zumba Instructors who tirelessly study music and choreography for their clients. I can tell you 16 hours of my day I am learning, listening, reading, studying, learning, eating, sleeping Latin Zumba Music. LOL Seriously, every step, sound, note, break, flavor, beat, stomp, step, rhythm is all accounted for and worked hard for. The reason why Zin is so important because it keeps us Zumba Instructors up to date with the choreography, the newest music, and the most recent news to the second. I am so grateful I joined such an amazing company like Zumba who offers endless opportunity to help others as Zumba Instructors. I am grateful of Zumba’s unstoppable Charitable opportunities that I can hold on my own as a sole proprietor and all the work is done for me. Just like 4Life Transfer Factor I always knew Transfer Factor is special to help build one’s immune system to fight against ANY attack to the body, that is health. One must not only take the TF for our health, but also exercise as well, and of course eat healthy is a plus as well.

I am also excited to tell you of a client of mine who used to been insulin dependent with diabetes that was her battle. Giving needles to herself was not the life she wanted to live whose is really?!. I told her of Transfer Factor and she said finally one day, enough is enough!!! I have been watching her become more and more healthy not only through TF but with her dedication she has made to her body to workout and eat right. (Watch out for my blog about “Food and Attitude.” I am so excited to share she no longer needs insulin. God knows what is in store next with our next step (no pun intended) =) I have to tell you the exciting feeling I have inside to be able to help others through Zumba Fitness as well as 4Life Transfer Factor! I want to shout it out to the world and I know many millions of you who know about Zumba Fitness and know about 4Life’s Transfer Factor would agree that both are Absolutely Incredible!!!! I look forward to your awesome testimonies as well! Blessings that continue to pour into the lives of people who are willing and able to take that step for themselves! See you on the dance floor!! xoxo

Top soil and Gravel

It was September, 2 years ago our 3rd year Wedding Anniversary.  Hubby and I got an awesome gift for a couples massage from my in-laws.  A day at Niagara on the Lake for an awesome massage with my amazing husband!  Isn’t a massage much needed most of or all of the time?!  Ahhhhh..I remember how enjoyable and very relaxing this time was.

We were on our way home and feeling nice we wanted to take a nice stroll in the beautiful  park nearby.  Whirlpool State Park Niagara Falls, NY was our destination to stroll.  We walked a beautiful tree lined, dirt trail along the Niagara River.  The walk was butter at this point.  We were feelin good, the air was the best to breath, the sun was shining, but it was at a perfect temperature.  I remember the feeling of I don’t want this day to end…Awe, kinda like our wedding day! :’)

So hubby and I started to venture a little…

The dirt path led to some interesting steps..A nice artwork of handcrafted stairs that were somewhat challenging and a little intimidating at times.  That was an interesting experience all in itself…I mean there were people huffing and puffing on the way back up telling us this is the only way to get back up..There is no other way back up to the dirt trail?

We walked along the river a bit looked at all the beauty that surrounded us..the sound of the rapids hitting the mountain on the floor we were standing on..just beautiful!  We kept walking noticing the trees are starting their change in colors.  So pretty this time of year in Buffalo, NY.  I have to say this is my most favorite time of year here.  I love it!

So we continued on the path..there are cute little picnic areas with tables to stop have lunch, grab some water, or for just a breather…We took the latter..yep no water…

Duh, we just had massages and here we are here acting Dora and Diego the explorers!  There goes our tense free bodies!  lol We are pretty much an hour into this hike and thought back and both agreed there was no way we were gonna walk back and up those forsaken stairs again!  Haha..

What would you do at that moments time?  Look up right?!  Yeah, we figured there HAS to be another way up from where we were! Riiiiiiiight?????????  Wrong!!

We started up the mountain..you know when climbing a hill and there are some branches that hang above ground that could be used as leverage.  That was useful for a little while..As the mountain was getting steeper and steeper the rock became more and more visible.  The signs of trees were far and  few in between.  I was feeling like jello beyond this point.  My husband was so cute and is so much my hero every day of our lives still.  This was definately our personal little test!

So we are you know like on Lumber84 ground now..when you picture a pile of gravel in your mind that was us!  Mind you this is not a perfect plane where we can keep rowing our feet to keep us grounded until you reach the top.  No, this mountain was one with us at this point..we were standing up and so was the mountain and there was nothing holding us up but..us!  Sweat and tears started to pour at this point.  I was in front of my husband he was my strength in this moments time….

The gravel got worse to keep our bearing was getting harder and harder.  I would slide having nothing to hang on to and Pete was sliding too.  All I can remember is saying oh dear God please get us outta here.  I was breathing so hard with my head down into the ground.  Crying I looked down and what I saw that was sheer beauty 45 minutes before..straight down was the gorge where I did not want our lives to lay!  I was so scared..I then seriously looked up hoping the coastguard would fly a helicopter down to rescue us.  lol hopeful right..

I then felt Pete continuing to push my butt as I struggled up the rocks..looked like about a mile up we could be hugging the wall of the mountain in hopes of a little walkability.  Pushing, sliding, sweating, arm strength I grabbed onto a beautiful tree branch that decided to show it roots…seriously a miracle…

Our bodies were against this rock.  Bottom of us we flush with the mountain..our heads were our in the sky it felt like.  I remember shaking no sharing to many words just wanting to survive.  One wrong step could make all the effort of coming up at this point come to a devastating end…

We shuffled to around a bend of the mountain is somewhat relieve of where we could stand for a second and sit in some mountain man made seats.  We still had a couple of miles to go and reminded at this point we need water.

We looked at eachother and said we got this far we can do this…I could just cry at the thought..We looked up and saw a path of what some previous hikers had created over the years.  Thank God…One thing though we did not have our hiking gear, nor have we ever done this before.  The hooks in the rock were our only hope to get home to our baby girl and the future of our lives together!  :”’)

As we were contemplating my hero found a brilliant contraption…There was rope that was lying along side this tiny path around the other side that led all the way up seemed as a couple miles to the top.

We took position, using the rope, hooks, and strength and climbed and climbed..The way up ironically at this point was resembling the stairs on the way down.  The plush trees were in our site as was the gardrail that protects the tourists from getting hurt.  We jumped the gaurd rail and quickly ran to the water fountain near in site!

We did it !  We did it!  We did it horAay!!!!!!!!

Best advice I could share…Our road is already paved for us in this here life..No one says it never gets bumpy because it really does, it truly surely really does!  That is the sheer fact why sidewalks, picnic tables, and park benches were invented for us to stop and sit to take a few moments to reflect!

Also, please do nothing strenuous after a long needed massage..Lol

Lastly, if you want to be adventurous.  If you want to do something fun and exciting. Dangerous even.  Please do it with those you can trust your life with.  Those who will die for you as you would die for them and with them.  Strength to accomplish something that life depends on that certain someone to be a team with you to struggle with you, to endure with you, to hold onto faith with one another, to perservere together, and to accomplish…that is what we are make of!

I dedicate my Love to you Peter!  We are all so Blessed!!!!  I thank God for my Amazing Husband and Awesome Man of God! Hugs and Kisses 😉

Sow In Love

I am so truly Blessed of the Love that surrounds me…The opportunity to pour out my hearts content. There is no greater feeling than sharing a special moment with those that you love and that love you unconditionally! I grew up with parents that separated and divorced when I was three there was no tension, anger, fighting nothing I knew about my entire life. I have been Blessed to have been brought up with 4 loving parents, not to mention the extended families as well. You can only imagine what Christmas was like..lol Everyone would have done any thing I mean anything to make each other happy and kept that relationship with each other through all of my growing years. Those were the days when love used to reign. Unfortunately, through the years my Grandparents, then my Dad and then my Step Dad went to be with the Lord just recently. The most difficult times of my life, yes but has most certainly made me realize the legacy God wants us to continue through the Love all of us hold within. Love is something special, something undeniably strong that no one thing could change that feeling. My Husband and My Children…If you told me I was gonna Love these Blessings in my life as I do today as much as I do and I could cry at the thought I could not wholeheartedly tell you this compassion that is instilled in my heart the destiny that hangs in our soul is I want to say indubious! I could have not come up with a better word LOL
It pains me to watch others create problems for themselves I will fight that until my dying day! Why burn bridges, why get revenge, why hold grudges. I remember my Aunt Debbie who was really close with my Dad. She told me she asked him before he left if he ever held a grudge..she witnessed that of him thru his entire life that he didn’t. He humbly said NO! :'(
I have come to realize that when people say life is too short…it is not really that life is too short it is truly our decisions we make that makes all the difference. I have not known an environment, a life of tension or friction (only what I have created for myself, of course) thanks again to the Blessed parents I was given. To watch that in others continue to live in this life is like the feeling of salt entering a cut…I pray for slumber to wake and weak and weary strength to perseverence is the greatest gift to prevail. The question that continually needs an answer the story of Love that never gets old.
I have to tell a story real quick and then I have to get to bed…
So Hubby, Daughter, and I went to Loews to buys some house plants. At the time Pete and I were teaching “Kings Kids” at our church New Covenant Tabernacle. This class was for our preschool children at our church. So we had to keep our cirriculum fun and exciting to keep these kids interested. So every week we had to think of an activity to do to have them really participate and take something from class. So towards the end of semester we were thinking of something they could actually have for the rest of their lives. An impact is what I was looking for…I was watching TCT one day and there was a Mom on there that wanted to teach her child a lesson of talking bad about anyone could really hurt that person and really even kill them…She said at first did not know if this was going to work but came up with this idea..Here we go an answer to mine and Peter’s prayers:

Rachael was 18 months at the time and we were at Loews
We were buying plants for our new home
I saw an entire rack of these dead plants (TCT mom comes to mind)
I call Pete over and said Pete, what do you think about this for our kids (King’s Kids)…..
He loved it!!!!
So Rachael, Pete, and I picked 24 of the dead plants that were there on the clearance rack..I mean they were like 20 cents each that is how dead they were
12 kids in our class
2 plants per each kid
We had a pair for ourselves as well..
We get to class on Sun. with this huge grate of these dead plants
The kids looking at us in wonder, like we are absolutely crazy
Each kid was instructed to talk to both plants, now they really think we’re nuts haha..just imagine what the parents thought who weren’t there lol
One plant..tell it how beautiful it is, that you Love it, that it is growing to be this amazing plant
The other plant..tell it it is nasty, has no purpose, is ugly..
We heard a few testimonies of flourishing and failings and of course of responsibilities which were cool. Then the stories seemed to fade with sharing stories of a plant that sits in their homes so only God knows about them 😉
I guess you are wondering how our plants did…well that I can tell you..the one that we talked down on never had a chance to grow, always wilted a little more every day. Eventually, became so frail and brittle it crumbled to pieces in no time :'(
Our other one excitedly, on the other hand..
Our Tiger Baby…We now need literally a big potter to replant it after almost only 2 years! Keep up with the beautiful growth baby!! 🙂

Truth lies in words spoken...

And that is a plant…just imagine what I have or could have done to a persons life?
I Love You soooooooooooooo much!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Excersize daily, walk with God

The feeling is so incredible to walk with God everyday. I say this with truth that I need HIM and always did I was just to stubborn to notice. I am so grateful for salvation. All we do is so not worthy of God’s Love as he continues to pour into our Faith in hopes we notice. There is nothing I can do without HIM..I need Him…I need God to show me what path to take next…there is no greater feeling knowing our paths are already paved. Of all the things I have gone through in this here life here on earth I will not apologize for the weakness that I have endured. I am truly Blessed that I am time tested, not on my time graciously and gracefully holding hands with our Father who is our strength and conquorer. Having witnessed that God can accomplish anything through me is the mere reminder of all the times I truly screwed up and he never gave up on me once and he could have soooooooo many times. I have wanted things my way or the highway in my past and let me tell you…big mistake I needed to learn many times in a never ending circle I needed to break and was given that privilege as we all are to make a shift because there is more for me not more of me 🙂
I love the truth of it is not about religion it is truly not…it is souly on relationships…I don’t remember where I heard that but my entire perspective of my life shifted…
Whenever I need you, you are always there…
Whenever there is pain you always cast my cares..
Whenever there is a question I can always rely on you…
When there is weakness you always amazingly give strength too!

From an adorable menu at Genny’s Restaurant while on vacation in Lack Lure, NC

Grazing the water…

Yesterday was the day we did some serious tubing…Never did I imagine I would be saying I love this so much! I truly am so sore and worked muscles I have not used in a very long time. Or what I say my fascia hurts lol I seriously cannot wait to do this again..

Taking the pontoon to the tubing location is sweet knowing my family is there watching and working it out on their turn and having their own experience..Children sleeping due to the motions of the boat so relaxed makes me so happy :)) Getting on that tube is such a rush. An exciting adventure a husband and wife can take together.

Wow..That was so FUN!! Taking the waves together, riding the ripples together, flowing the jumps together, taking the breezes as the water hits our face, then bam taking a hit like no other! Smack the water like a body flop…Haha can I tell you the worst is feeling the punch in the face feeling of water up the nose really bad did not once want me to stop…We got right back up again and did it again…

This time solo…

Wow!! Incredible!! This time it was me and the tube…I was never so determined to not fall off to become one with the waves, ripples, jumps, grazes, breeze, the water..I am so excited to say that I enjoyed the entire ride on the tube and boy was that exhausting lol Worth it, YES!!!

I got back on the boat slowly, kinda like gumby, adrenaline rushing, blood flowing and saying I just love grazing the water..Then I asked the instructor…What else would I enjoy skiing, water skiing, surfing? He said to me, you like grazing on the water, and I said yes! He said you girl love tubing! =)

I learned from tubing if you keep your hands on tight with all your might, as hard as you can, and don’t let go you won’t fall off and will be sooooo much fun and such a challenge, such a rush and no guarrentee that it won’t hurt later on..or also in turn if you do fall off it is still just a good it is quite alright and an equal rush to get back on and do it again!!

Shut IT down!! The thought that you can’t do it…BE GONE…Get out there and do it NOW!

Practice makes perfect

Okay so whoever said that was so not perfect! What it should say is practice makes practice! Have you tried to learn something over and over again and told yourself I am so not gonna get this. I can’t do this. Even being so close to having a knowing of the absolute target.

For 5 years now I have been in my network marketing company psyching myself out. Not giving up..not giving in nope I have been seriously beating myself up being on information zone rather than learning mode. It was until the day I surrendered my being to actually learn to teach something to myself than trying to control anything I myself do not have any control over. Why do we want to live that way of life any way!! How exhausting that was!! Now I learned myself and the tools I need necessary to grow my team and as I love to reap all that I sow. I constantly look for opportunities to learn something new for that is in every opportunity in life that I always took for granted..The journey is ours!

I love Zumba so much..the entire thought that I could possibly help people through dancing is incredible! The entire Zumba family is amazing and the stories that I hear from fellow zumba instructors the testimonies they share are the heart warming stories that makes me want more and more!!

So sheer motivation should be the outcome to accomplish my goals, dreams, and aspirations of helping others and growing through 4Life and Zumba you would think would be enough. A few months ago it wasn’t..I allowed that self doubt, that negative thought, the influenced words to be the answer to my destination. How unfortunate to allow something so sad control my destiny..A great leader, I like to call my life coach, Michael Bernoff, who has really changed and transformed mine and my husbands life so incredibly it seriously brings tears to my eyes and fills me with so much joy and happiness!

No longer will I allow lies to overcome where I am meant to be…So as I am making decisions, establishing a relationship, assisting one in need, growing our team, practicing my Zumba Class routine, assisting others. I now know for a fact I may not master all this but I am for certain dedicated hard to win!!!

You too have the power to do wonderful and amazing things!! Go back and show them what you got!!! You want fight give em fight you show em you what you got! Put on your full suit of armor…change is soooooooo good!! Incredible, you can do anything your heart desires!! Listening and transforming is so rewarding…

Fear–You Can Do It!!

What a scary word huh? Not really, F.aith E.ndures A.lways R.ight!?! Did you ever have a fear or do you have one currently? How do you overcome your biggest one? Have you overcome? Tell me about that…

The enemy tries to steal, lie, cheat and destroy the truth that we all have the choice to supersede and overcome the outcome! There is no greater feeling than getting over that fear…

I remember when 911 happened and the war began I remember hearing at that time on the news that Americans are all based on fear. 🙁 That really twinged me for a second, then I got really defensive for a little bit..talking smack, being mean, and talking down. Giving the enemy just what he wanted basically. Then the absolute truth turned to me that God created our lives and our forefathers based our truth on HIM, then I became sad and had the realization that the enemy is really trying to steal what is rightfully ours! We have always known the fact, the absolute truth we are based on FREEDOM not FEAR!!!

If you are afraid of something no matter what it is..Big or small you can do it, you can overcome!! When you get those butterflies, that nervousness, that adrenaline, that desire to do something to change something you just know you need to do it..Stop talking about it..Stop contemplating..Stop feeding it..Overcome it..Perservere..Do it…Move forward..and waste no more time..Time is so precious!

You are NEVER alone ever! All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me!! When you overcome that fear now, that championship today, I can promise you..you will have the most amazing feeling you ever thought possible! Get out there choose your battle and win that battle, today!

River of Life

I am a medical doctor. At first I was a bit skeptical about the benefits of 4Life Transfer Factor until I began to notice the immune support it provided to my patients. I decided to give my four year-old son 4Life Transfer Factor Kids to help support his immune system. Today he is a healthy little boy. He now takes swimming lessons. One thing that I cannot do without in my household is Transfer Factor Kids. My entire family takes 4Life products. They really are gifts of life.
Edgard B. 4Life Distributor, Colombia
My wife and I take Rite Start and our baby takes 4Life Transfer Factor Kids. We feel like these products have supported healthy energy levels for us. Our experience has been great with the use of this products. My wife and I go to work happy and energized and our baby seems happy. I’m glad we are taking these products.
Ramon A. 4Life Distributor, California
My children love the 4Life products. My youngest daughter used to have bloody noses quite often, but she does not get them at all since she started to take Transfer Factor Kids.
Yumiko Hirakawa F.
My son is six years old and his immune system has always been very weak. We tried numerous natural products, such as homeopathic remedies, echinacea, and other various herbs, but it was always the same situation. Since he started taking Transfer Factor Kids in the end of June 2001, I’ve seen tremendous results. I know that his immune system has greatly improved since taking Transfer Factor
Terri G.
My wife had been dealing with some dizziness and stability problems for about two years. She had been taken Transfer Factor Plus and was reading about 4Life Transfer Factor Recall and decided to try it. We have definitely noticed a positive difference in her life.

Ruth A. 4Life Distributor, Mexico
I have a great testimony on Transfer Factor ReCall and my seven year-old son. I’ve been getting positive feedback from his teacher in regards to his concentration level. His grades went from the 50s to the 80s and 90s. I really believe this additional support to his immune system contributed to the increase in his ability to focus, retain and concentrate.
Cathy H., 4Life Distributor, West Richland, Washington
“ I have been taking 4Life Transfer Factor products since 1998 and I’ve never missed a single day. I take 4Life Transfer Factor Cardio, MalePro, and ReCall. In addition to these I take Rite Start for Men and 4Life Transfer Factor RioVida. I’m so grateful for the immune support I receive from these Transfer Factor products. When people ask me how I’m feeling, I say, “I feel great. Never felt better! What do you expect, I’m only 73!” My best marketing tool is how I look and how I feel!
LaVern R. 4Life Distributor, Maryland
My family has a history of varicose veins. My veins had become very painful and their appearance was bad. I began taking PBGS+, Cardio Formula and now 4Life Transfer Factor. I used to have to wear very firm support hose but not any more, thanks to 4Life.
Doris B. Modesto, California

I am so excited about the NutraStart meal replacement. I love it! It’s something that I have personally needed for so long. We’re busy building our business, and oftentimes, I would just rather have something nutritious and quick that I could prepare, rather than grabbing something that isn’t as good for me. I’ve actually been replacing two meals, my breakfast and lunch, with it, and having a real healthy, full dinner with regular exercise.
Melba W., Las Vegas, Nevada

I take 4Life Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula to support my immune system. It’s been great, especially in terms of providing balance to my immune system. I also started using 4Life Transfer Factor RenewAll and Aloe Vera to promote healthy skin. Both of these products help keep my skin soft and healthy.
Heidy C. 4Life Distributor, Pennsylvania
Recently, I placed a cup of water in the microwave to heat it for coffee and accidentally placed more time on it than planned. When I went to take the cup out it exploded and scalded part of my face, right side, and my stomach area. It was burning terribly. I put 4Life Transfer Factor RenewAll on it and I really feel like this product helped support my skin’s natural healing function—Ed L. 4Life Distributor, Indiana
I have fallen in love with the TF RenewAll gel and so has my son. I recommended that he use it for his facial pimples and now I can’t get the bottle back from him. He uses it all the time to help with pimples and blackheads. I apply the gel around my mouth and under my eyes. Tremendous results have taken place in our family.
Donna H., 4Life Distributor, Sonora, California
I get razor burn a lot when I shave. I put Transfer Factor RenewAll on the razor burn and it improves dramatically in two to three days, rather than eight to ten days like it normally used to take.
David P., Bellevue, Washington

I injured two of my toes, causing the skin on my big toe to peel back, which left an open wound about the size of a quarter. I applied TF Immune Spray and the TF RenewAll gel, and I think these products helped the skin to heal much better. In less than a week it looked very good.
Glenda B.
Several years ago, I was on a desperate search to support the overall health of my body, especially the health of my joints and muscles. I tried herbal supplements, vitamin therapy, physical therapy, and other suggestions found in books, magazines, etc. One day my phone rang, and I was offered the opportunity to buy 4Life Transfer Factor. The more I heard about this product, the more I was convinced that my search might have been productive. I ordered 4Life Transfer Factor and the Fibro AMJ system. I have received wonderful support for my immune system and muscles and joints. I look forward to each day and what I can accomplish with this great quality of life. I would like to say thank you to all the people who have contributed in any way to the process of research, production, and marketing of such advantageous products for the people of the world.
Linda Faye J. 4Life Distributor, Arkansas

Linda N. 4Life Customer, Kentucky
I am twenty-six years old. I was born legally blind in both of my eyes. Aside from having very bad vision I’ve always considered myself very lucky compared to most other people. I found out about 4Life Transfer Factor and how it has changed the lives of thousands of people all around the world. I was extremely skeptical about trying this product for myself. But curiosity killed the cat and I decided to try the product anyway because it was so unique. After taking the product for a few weeks I really feel like it has made a difference in my immune system, which has improved my quality of life. I feel like I have more energy throughout the day and it is easier for me to wake up in the morning. I can’t imagine not taking my daily capsules every day in the morning.
Jawaune S. 4Life Distributor, Florida
We were introduced to 4Life Transfer Factor in 1999. At the time, we were desperate to find a natural product that could support our three year-old daughter’s immune system. We know that 4Life Transfer Factor has made all the difference. Today she is healthy and happy. She takes 4Life Transfer Factor Advanced Formula to keep her immune system strong and healthy. In fact we have the whole family taking Transfer Factor. We are now strong believers in the whole Transfer Factor family of products.
Grace C. 4Life Distributor, Singapore

Recently my throat felt really scratchy and irritated. I was already taking Transfer Factor and I also used the Transfer Factor Immune Spray. I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. I continued to use the spray for two days. I was very, very pleased to be able to turn it around. I used Transfer Factor combined with the Transfer Factor Immune Spray.

They are unequalled in the industry.

Mike W. 4Life Distributor
Branford, Connecticut
I have had challenging dental problems in the past and have lost most of my teeth. I have been using 4Life Transfer Factor Toothpaste ever since it was introduced at Convention. When I visited my hygienist recently, she was very pleased with the condition of my gums and teeth, and said the pocket depth is good. She was very impressed with the Transfer Factor Toothpaste formula, the immune support it provides and the addition of Co-Q10. I am really excited about this new toothpaste!
Linda N. 4Life Distributor, Washington
My grandson is about two years old. When he was six months old, he had to go to daycare. And he’d always have colds and ear infections. I would open the 4Life Transfer Factor capsule and put it in his formula. Now that he’s almost two, he actually reminds me to give him his 4Life Transfer Factor Chewables and his TF Kids. I feel really good about giving my grandkids the best that I can for their health, and he actually enjoys taking it.
Elona H., Sandy, Utah
I have never before even considered giving a testimony for any product that I have used, however, I feel a moral obligation to let people know how I felt after taking aloe vera juice. After a few sessions of radiation treatments for prostate cancer, my wife convinced me that the aloe vera juice would keep my energy level up during the radiation sessions that I had to endure which was 37 sessions total. From my first dose of aloe vera juice, I have been able to tell without a doubt when it was time for me to take another dose. The first time I felt the difference, I was driving the interstate and for a second, I felt so good that I felt like I could get out of the car and outrun it. I am very supportive of the aloe vera product.
William D., Raleigh, North Carolina
After taking Gurmar, Catalyst Formula and Cardio Formula for six weeks I had a check-up with my doctor. My blood pressure, blood sugar and weight had decreased. It is the best report I have had in 8 years. My doctor is still not a believer, but he said that if I think the products are helping I should keep taking the them. If in three months my health continues to improve, he might give the products some credit. We will show him!
Larry C. Vancouver, Washington

I was struck by an automobile, in a glancing blow to the door. My rib cage was compressed and the greater trochanter of the left femur was cracked.

I am delighted.

I was getting married and was a size 8. My waist was a 28. I was a little chubby. I started on the Fibre System Plus, EnzyRite and a healthy diet and exercise program.

I take 4Life products to help with my symptoms of fibromyalgia. I take Transfer Factor Plus and both the Fibro AMJ formulas. I’ve also added other products. I added the BioEFA, CM Super, SleepRite, and Inner Sun. My depression has lifted. I’m able to sleep most of the night. Before using these products, I had been waking up several times a night and not being able to get back to sleep. I am really grateful for 4Life Research.

I am almost 88 years old. Five years ago, my PSA was always fairly low. One time it went up for a short period. I had blood in my urine and had to have some miserable procedures because my prostate was enlarged. I began taking MalePro and Male Formula. I also take 4Life Transfer Factor and RiteStart for Men. The last check on my PSA was more in the normal range. I am very pleased with the 4Life supplements.

For a long time, I’ve been desperate to find a way to support my muscles and joints, promote healthy sleep patterns, and support my thyroid. The combination of Fibro AMJ Day and Night-time Formulas and Metabolite have been wonderful. I feel just great. I just can not say enough, so I have preached it to anyone who will listen, and decided that products this good must have a great company as well. You will never know what this has done for me.

My husband Marty and I recently went on a seven-day Caribbean cruise. We have been on many cruises but on this one the food was absolutely fabulous! I have to say it was the best of any of the cruises we’ve been on. As a result we ate so much! We carried our Carb BLX and ChitoLite with us to the dining room every day. When we got home and got on the scale, I had LOST a pound! Marty only gained 2 pounds! This was after eating every dessert on the menu and many times, 2 entrees! Wow! we’re ready to go again, but not without our products!

I have tried many different diets, only to gain back the weight. I decided to try Shapefast Ultra along with Catalyst Plus. I noticed a difference in my appetite in just a matter of a couple of days. I feel like I have more energy during the day. I’m very pleased with these products and highly recommend them.

WOW!! I love the new B’Tweens! I am a chocoholic and the chocolate/mint flavor of B’Tweens really surpassed my expectations. I want to keep eating them because they taste so good, like eating candy! When using B’Tweens I don’t get hungry. It certainly takes care of my cravings and helps suppress my appetite. It’s a great aid for anyone trying to lose weight. Keep it up, 4Life!!

The owners of a pregnant mare sent her for training from California to Reno. After she was there for about three weeks, she got a high fever and was really sick. The owner got pretty nervous about that and called me; I recommended that we use the Animal Stress Pack. In four days, she had bounced back and was back to her training.

I give the Feline and Canine Complete formulas to my cat and dog. I’ve noticed that they both look more vibrant and bright and their eyes are more alert. It’s a subtle change, but I definitely notice it in them.

A nine-year-old female dog named Cody weighed about 35 pounds. She developed an acute skin condition with intense itching in both ears. For the next five to six months, the owners tried everything they could, but with little relief for Cody. I advised a food change and told them to get on 4Life Transfer Factor Canine Complete. There began to be improvement almost right away. At the end of one month, her skin and hair color looked great; her ears were normal. Cody’s been doing great for over six months now.

Our cats have thrived on 4Life Transfer Factor and Transfer Factor Feline Complete. This complete formula has helped provide total support for their bodies. Our younger cat loves her Transfer Factor so much that if I forget to add it to her food, she lets me know about it!

Two of my ‘barn’ cats have suffered every summer from problems with fleas and ‘hot spots.’ They were so sad and scruffy looking, that I hated to admit that they belonged to me, not to mention how uncomfortable and insecure they felt! Along with a flea control regimen, I started mixing Livestock Stress Formula with water and a bit of canned cat food, in individual dishes. They usually only get dry cat kibble, so the meat was very appetizing, and they lapped it all up.
In a couple of days the sores started drying up, and they stopped itching so much! In a week, they looked so much better that I reduced the amount I was giving them. In two weeks, their hair had started growing back in, and they started having a lot more self-confidence! The changes in these two cats are amazing!
