Mid-Life Transformation; Yep It’s REAL

Tuesday, January 18th 2011

As I promised, I’ll be hosting a series of inspiring and powerful transformation stories – ALL FREE…

The first one will be next week… But today I want to give you a preview and a freebie…

BEFORE: Overworked, Overweight, Out-of-shape

In her mid-thirties Bel (from http://www.BelsBodyBlog.com ) was overworked, overweight, out-of-shape and stuck in a major life rut… Stuck behind a desk and in a very challenging marriage – which ended in divorce…

She used her divorce as a springboard into the next phase of her life. A life which SHE would control… A life she would be proud to live…

Here is one of only a few “Before” photos Bel keeps:

For a sneak preview you can see the results of Bel’s Stunning Mid-Life Transformation Blog <= here - and where this new path in life has led her.

Here is the other "before" photo Bel was able to dig up. She and I talked about how it was a natural habit for her to "hide" behind others (she's the blond, behind everyone) when it was time to take photos back then...

In our interview next week – Bel is going to share some very helpful and insightful info. We are going to show you how her personal growth and evolution in life is at the core of her story and how you can find the same power within yourself.

The foundation of Bel’s success is in the nutrition/recipe/organization area – and because of this, her program is a perfect fit with any of my exercise programs you may be following. (NOTE: Bel is going to be one of the fitness pros putting my ULBHTM program to the test during the next few weeks – so you’ll want to stay tuned for her “review”)

AFTER: International Fitness Model and Inspiring Role-Model for Women

As a result of her self-mastery she has been presented with many incredible opportunities and has women constantly asking for advice. To help her handle the demand – she has put her “method” and approach into a program you can get from her site =>> The Get Lean Program

As part of this interview sneak preview, Bel has given me permission to share this FREE, copyrighted 2-page feature article with you: Bel’s MM Feature Article

Stay tuned – you are going to thoroughly enjoy the interview – and benefit greatly from it…

Young Lady Proves Her Personal Fitness Wisdom

Thursday, November 18th 2010

Some of the best posts here are candid accounts of personal fitness success stories…

If you’ve been following this site for a while – then you know there are various types of great successes – each very special in their own unique way.

This one is no different. And no matter what your age – you will get something from this, for sure… Read on…

Hi Joey,

I don’t usually write these emails, and I’m not sure if you’ll read this, but here I go anyways!

My name is Alex and I’m 18 years old. Anyways, I played competitive volleyball almost all through high school, so I was extremely in shape! (I’m talking training 3 times a week for beach volleyball and another 2 times for indoor) About 18 months ago, at the beginning of my senior year, I knocked back a position on the state volleyball team to concentrate on school…

After knocking back the position, the amount of volleyball I was playing started to drop off, I was doing less and less exercise and after about 6 months, it started to show.

Not to anyone else, as I was still a lot skinnier than a lot of my friends and I always got told to shut up when I complained. But for me, it just wasn’t good enough that I was starting to get flabby as opposed to my tightly toned body I’ve been used to.

But, I’m naturally extremely lazy and though I’d complain, I’d never actually do anything about it. So before I knew it, I went from a size 8 to a size 10 (Australian sizes) and trying to convince myself it wasn’t ‘that bad’…

Which brings me to this year, where I’m in the most unfit shape I’ve ever been in my life…

Yes, I know I’m only 18 and have no life experience etc as my Dad would say. But being just ‘okay’ at anything has never sat right with me, especially when I KNOW I can do better.

So at the beginning of the year before I started working full time, I went and got myself a gym membership. I went 5 times a week for 3 months, I was feeling great, I had a lot more energy, but the changes I were seeing just wasn’t what I wanted, then I got sick and never really got back into it, only going once a week now if I’m lucky.

I also don’t watch what I eat one tiny bit, even though I really should. In the last year, I’ve seen my step mum gain 20 kgs because her age and not looking after herself was catching up to her…

Which brings me to my main motivation for finally getting my act together and deciding to do something, even though my body is OKAY now, what’s going to happen in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?

I DO NOT want to get fat…

So bored at work, I was having a bit of a google and I came across your site. I was extremely skeptical at first, but I really enjoyed reading your stuff because it was clear that you cared and weren’t spewing bullshit!

So I bit the bullet and bought the DVD’s, hoping to prove everyone wrong who said I’d been pulled into some marketing scam…

All I can say is WOW.

I’m finding muscles I never even knew I had!

I’ve done countless amounts of different exercises over my time playing competitive volleyball, and nothing has ever burned like your exercises. (Besides maybe wall sits!) It was GREAT!

The day after I did the workout for the first time, I had a lactic acid build up that I hadn’t had in so long, and it felt good! Same with the day after the 2nd workout. I LOVE getting that lactic acid build up feeling, makes me feel like I’ve done something.

But then I did a silly thing and fell asleep at the beach with no sunscreen on…. 4 days later brings us to yesterday where it had finally gone down enough that I could move. So I did your workout for the 3rd time and once again, wow!

I also feel like I’m building my core strength back up, which is AMAZING! Something I never thought I’d get back without going back into hard out volleyball training again!

I read every newsletter you send, and I love the success stories so much!! So life story put aside, I’m writing to tell you that I feel so fortunate I’ve found you at such a young age, so I don’t let my body slip into complete fatness and spend forever fighting to get it back!

I can’t wait for my body to be back to where I know it can be! Indirectly, you’ve also motivated me to pick up volleyball again, I really miss an active lifestyle. So as soon as I finish writing this, I’m going to Facebook the girls and see who’s keen!!!

I hope more girls my age stumble across your site, because I truly believe that starting now is going to be so much better for my health and well being in the long run!

So thank you so much Joey!!

— Alex

PS- One of my favourite parts of your DVD is the fact that there is NO ANNOYING MUSIC! Can’t stand that gimmicky crap!

Firsthand accounts of common “ups & downs” make success more realistic to other, ‘everyday’ people. They PROVE it can be done – and this inspires others into action… it happens every day.

I hope you’ve found something of value in this story. If so please share it with others and feel free to leave your comments or thoughts below…

Weights & Machines Suck; Rock Your Body Without Them

Monday, August 9th 2010

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time – then you know I’m a big – no, make that MASSIVE, advocate of bodyweight fitness training.

If you’ve only ‘found me’ recently – then I’ll make it clear here: The conventional approach to getting in shape via weights and machines “in the gym” is no match for a properly designed bodyweight training program. Doesn’t matter if we’re talking about pure beginners or ultra-advanced fitness enthusiasts…

Now – don’t get me wrong, there is a place for some weights. Dumbbells are an excellent tool, when used properly to supplement a well-designed bodyweight workout program.

As you read this – it should help for you to know you are hearing this from someone who has learned of this difference through deep experience – both of myself and countless clients I’ve worked with over the past 21 years.

I’ll be writing more about this in the near future – but for now I want to share a detailed success story email which boldly highlights the point I’m making in this post. Here it is…

Dear Joey:

I have been meaning to write for a while but have been busy with life. I must give credit where credit is due. I bought your lower body dvd set a while ago, I think 2 or 3 months ago. Anyways I wrote you once to tell you that I could feel the results of your workouts and was seeing some results.

What I now want to tell you is that I am amazed at your work outs in the dvds and how it has changed the shape of my legs and thighs.

I am starting to get legs that I have always wanted.

I have worked out with weights for years and got some results but never like I have now. I was never happy with my thighs and worked hard on them with weight training, only to get discouraged at the hard work and quite frankly get sick of all the effort.

I stopped going to the gym for a few years and wanted to get back into shape, so I persevered back into the weights at the gym, started jogging and was hoping for the best. Around the same time, I found your dvds on line and ordered them, I wanted to believe you but was skeptical.

The first work out was incredible, I was so sore for just plain exercises with no weights, and I am thinking what is going on here? I kept on doing the exercises 3 days a week and jogged and **stopped using weights.** Incredible, in fact the other day I decided to jog and just do weights, thinking I had better take it easy because I hadn’t done them for a while and was waiting for the sore legs – but NOTHING, not impressed!

The next time I went to the gym I jogged and did your exercises from your dvds. My legs were weak when I finished the exercises and they were sore the next day. I KNOW they work and am so happy with the results.

No weights, just specific exercises and I am getting the results I’ve always wanted but never got when I was working out with weights.

Thank you Joey for the awesome dvds and everything else that you put into it!!

I am a true believer!!
God bless
Nina – Powell River, B.C. Canada.

That’s an awesome email – Don’t you agree??

Listen – I’m not saying people don’t/can’t get into shape with the typical “gym approach” – because many (not all) people who push themselves hard and long enough will get in shape. But that comes with a downside: injuries, schedule conflicts, unrealistic time demands, life situations which prevent the “gym commitment”, and the list goes on….

BUT, when you free yourself from the shackles of a typical fitness center, by going with bodyweight fitness training – you remove SO MANY potential obstacles, making your lifelong commitment a million times easier to stick with.

More to come soon…

Yoga Exposed: Are There Really Any Benefits of Yoga?

Wednesday, June 23rd 2010


Yoga is big business. VERY big… But there is an inherent problem with this.

See, just like in the personal training field – there are many “certification courses” creating new and inexperienced yoga instructors every single week, all over the world. Now – this isn’t a problem if the instructor is matched up with appropriate student and is skilled in their teachings.

But – quite often that is not the case. Don’t get me wrong though – as there are many top-notch yoga instructors in literally every city and town around the globe. The challenge is finding the right “match” – just like when seeking out a personal trainer.

If you are in Jacksonville, Florida and want a great yoga instructor, get in touch with my friend Cari March @ Yoga to Go
If you are in the Orlando, Florida area go meet with Russ and Kim @ http://www.studionewellness.com

I realize you may be thinking…

“What does Joey know about Yoga?”

…and here’s the answer…

If you’ve been using my any of my home and travel fitness dvds – you may have noticed some exercises or stretches resemble a yoga pose, move or position… And this would be correct as most of my programs are a ‘fusion’ of exercises and workout methods. But – by no means am I calling myself a yoga instructor.

Having been in this fitness industry for over 22 years, I’ve had the privilege of meeting some of the best people in various areas of fitness – two of them are listed above. I have another longtime yoga friend who is on more of a global stage though…

More on him later as I want to answer the original question of this post…

“Are there really any benefits of yoga?”

The answer is “Definitely” (stress reduction, toning, health enhancement, sexual performance improvement, etc…) …BUT – since there are so many types of yoga – and so many instructors out there – It’s up to you to define your needs and then seek out the proper style/instructor which best suits your current abilities and long term goals.

If you are already into yoga – or are interested learning more about it, then I want to introduce you to Lucas Rockwood<= click here to meet him.

Not only is he the founder of one of the most successful yoga resorts in Thailand called ‘Absolute Sanctuary’ – but he’s also an international course developer and instructor.

He’s put together a neat little site for anyone interested in yoga. I’m not sure how much longer the freebies will be there so go pay him a visit and let him know ‘Joey sent you’…

As you dig into his articles and videos @ Yoga Body Natural – you’ll see why he’s considered an innovator in his field.

Reebok EasyTone, ReeTones, Skechers Shape Ups: OMG! Really?

Tuesday, May 11th 2010

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now – and this recent email, as simple as it was, pushed me over the edge – and prompted me to “get this done”.

Hi Joey,
What do you think of all these new shoes that are coming out that promise to shape you up just by walking in them, i.e., Reebok ReeTones, Skechers Shape Ups, etc.
Thanks
– Liz

So, here is the message that women are “hearing/perceiving”:

“Just wear these sneakers and your legs, butt and thighs will get toned, lifted and sculpted.”

And it raises the question (I’ll repeat it here) I get several times a day (or some variation of it):

“What do you think of all these new shoes that are coming out that promise to shape you up just by walking in them?”

This is what I hear in emails. It’s what I hear from the mom’s on the playground in my neighborhood – and it’s what I hear from the everyday, overly busy woman everywhere.

First and foremost – I must admit, the concept itself is beyond brilliant and the marketing is even more spectacular. I don’t even know if any of these toning sneaker companies come out and say it – but one thing is for sure; Women are certainly under the impression that these sneakers will tone-up their trouble spots just by wearing them. Again – this is great marketing, whether the sneakers actually work or not.

That being said. Here is what I do know…

After spending 7 years studying for a bachelors degree in exercise science and a masters degree in exercise physiology – combined with over 22 years of working with people on improving their bodies – I am confident in declaring there is very little likelihood of the average woman putting on a pair of these kicks, wearing them for 2 months straight – and expecting to have transformed her flabby, saggy trouble spots into tightly-toned, eye catching “hot spots”.

It’s just not going to happen.

Sure – there may be some improvement in posture, balance and/or some lower back ache relief – But, transforming your trouble spots into a bikini ready body??? Ehhh… I’m afraid NOT, ladies…

The truth is, it takes a bit more than lacing up a pair of “toning sneakers” and just carrying on with your day.

And even if there is some “firming and toning” reported by some of the women who’ve been trying them – I can promise that a properly targeted, yet simple, lower-body exercise routine will bring about changes that eclipse any improvements resulting form wearing the sneakers.

As a matter of fact – I’d put my Ultimate Leg, Butt, Hip & Thigh Makeover program up against any brand of “toning” sneaker on the market. I’d even do it on national TV if it could be arranged.

We can find 10 average, out of shape women to volunteer. Split them into two groups of 5. One group wears the “toning sneakers” for 2 months – and the other group does The ULBHTM for 2 months.

I don’t have to tell you how things would turn out – just let common sense tell which group will be looking sexier and ‘feeling’ much better too.

Who knows? Maybe Oprah can arrange ‘The Trouble-Spot Showdown’?

I’m sure all the women who watch the show would be VERY interested in who the undisputed champ would be.

If you want to pass this idea onto the producers of her show – go right ahead, because I’m serious about this. I’d even re-arrange my schedule so I can oversee The ULBHTM group during the 2 month “showdown”.

Click Here to Email the Oprah Crew and Let Them Know You Want to See “The Trouble-Spot Showdown” between the latest craze of toning sneakers for women – and The Ultimate, Leg, Butt, Hip & Thigh Makeover.

Let’s have some fun :-) – Shall we?

Your trainer for life – your trainer forever,

Joey Atlas

PS – while I would not suggest this without being able to directly supervise – It is quite possible that a synergy may exist between these types of sneakers and the standing ULBHTM exercise sequences. It may very well be the challenge is intensified yet a bit more, for the advanced ULBHTM user.

Inner Thigh Exercises: Wrong Ones Make Them Bigger

Wednesday, March 17th 2010

In all my years of training women and helping them get their bodies into top shape – I’ve never heard this request: “Joey, please help me make my inner thighs bigger, so they rub together even more and look horrible in a swimsuit.”

Truth is – just about every woman wants to slim, tone and tighten her inner thigh area. Even women who are slender and not overweight want to get any ‘slack’ out of that nagging region. The loose, jiggly skin and flab are just something the average female would rather do without. And understandably so.

There are so many opinions and solutions to be found for this one problem – from gimmicky infomercial products to ridiculous ‘firming lotions’ for the skin. None of those work – but they do make a ton of money for the companies which sell them.

There is only one thing which truly works. And that is – the right exercises. I say ‘right exercises’ because the wrong exercises will backfire and make the inner thigh area even bulkier and larger. NOT GOOD.

Most of the random articles you’ll read talk about “squats, lunges, inner thigh machine, etc…” The problem is – those types of exercises and workout routines do bulk up the upper leg muscles – including the sacred inner thigh zone.

The main focus needs to be on body-weight exercises which target the entire thigh area. And here’s why…

The inner thigh area is not made up of only one muscle. There are actually several large muscles and a series of smaller muscles which lie in close proximity to each other. But they are each of different sizes, lengths and widths. They also run in different directions. This all has to do with the unique movement abilities on the human body.

Because of this physiologic complexity – the body-weight exercise program which targets the inner thigh area for toning, tightening and slimming, needs to consist of a series of movements which are synergistic. Meaning, they produce the proper stimulus as a group as opposed to just being done alone.

This blend of body-weight exercises for the lower body stimulates the several dozen thigh muscles – which slim, tighten and tone the entire thigh area – including the inner thighs.

So, you’ll want to avoid squats with a barbell or dumbbells, lunges with weights, any type of leg press machine and any type of machine with cables and weight stacks.

Some of the exercises you’ll want to be sure to include are:

1 – Slow tempo adduction
2 – Low side shuffle
3 – Double hip extension with pillow or small ball between legs
4 – Side angle step down – with light toe touch

These are just a few of the exercises you’ll want to do in order to get your inner thighs into tight and sexy shape. The complete program plus exact instructions are in the ULBHTM dvds where I take you step by step through every exercise – as if your trainer (me) is right there with you – every step of the way.

Lower Body Secrets: 5 Tips for a Sexy & Toned Lower Body

Friday, February 5th 2010

———————————————————————————————–

Lower Body Secrets: 5 Tips for a Sexy & Toned Lower Body

Most women, regardless of age and body-type, are unhappy with certain areas of their lower body. Complaints and problems range from “too fat and heavy” to “too thin and un-shapely”. And even women who are pretty happy with their leg, butt, hip and thigh zones will also admit to wanting just a bit more enhancement in one or two specific lower-body areas.

These five tips will help you no matter where you are starting from and no matter what your primary goals are for your lower body trouble spots.

1 – Whichever types of resistance exercises you choose (you already know I prefer – and strongly recommend body-weight exercises and workouts) – just be sure to move slowly and control your tempo throughout the entire range of motion. Focus on breathing throughout each exercise. This will help you stay focused and ‘tuned-in’.

2 – If your main goal to lose body-fat and excess weight – then you must go beyond just “eating healthy”. You want to have an idea of the number of calories you consume daily. It’s simple math – avoid it at your peril. You don’t want to drive yourself nuts here – you just want to know what ‘zone’ your daily caloric intake is in. From there, you can make proper adjustments if needed.

3 – Incorporate a regular stretching program in your weekly fitness schedule. Doesn’t mater what ‘style’ – it can be yoga or pilates based – or even a straightforward, ‘blue-collar’ style like my Optimum Flexibility dvd program. But you want to keep your lower body flexible to avoid joint & muscle injuries, speed up recuperation and recovery between workout sessions – and allow you to be at the top of your game – no matter what your game might be. The point I’m trying to make here is – flexibility is often neglected in most people’s fitness programs. But the truth is – it’s an essential element which shouldn’t be left out.

4 – If your goal is to gain healthy weight and build up some sexy, lower-body curves – then be mindful of not over-doing your cardio/aerobic exercise. If gaining some body weight is your top goal – then 10 to 15 minutes of heart-pumping cardio 3 to 5 times per week is ideal for overall health and fitness purposes. You don’t need 50 minutes of aerobic exercise 7 days per week – as that will work against your main goal of healthy weight gain.

5 – (My Personal Favorite) Make Love/Have Great Sex: I’m not talking about trashy, immature promiscuity here. I’m referring to mature and safe sex (and often :-). Creative, healthy sex should include good doses of physical exertion and full-body muscle stimulation – especially from the lower body and core muscles. So get your sweet lover and get busy loving. A loved body is a sexy body… Yeah baby.

Bonus Tips: Here are 2 bonus tips for a better looking, and feeling, lower-body:

A – If you’ve never had a deep-tissue massage before – I would suggest you try it – or something like it. If you are active in fitness and/or sports – there is nothing like being worked on by a professional massage therapist while you get to completely relax. This is great for keeping your muscles and connective tissue healthy and flexible – in addition to a host of other benefits.

B – Most women already know this – but I’ll say it anyway… A good, natural moisturizer always makes the skin look better. Dry, scaly legs and thighs just don’t have that ‘appeal’ – if you know what I mean. If you have a natural moisturizer you like using – please mention it below in the comment section.

I hope you enjoyed these 5 lower body tips (plus 2 bonus tips). If you have any comments or thoughts – please feel free to post them below.

Body-Weight Leg Workout for Women; 4 Lower-Body Exercises

Monday, February 1st 2010

——————————————————————————–

Excerpted from The Cellulite Answer Video

Anti-Cellulite Exercises for Toning, Sculpting and Firming the Lower-Body

Bodyweight exercises can help the average woman achieve specific lower body goals. Some examples are:

1 – Anti Cellulite Exercises for cellulite reduction or to get rid of cellulite
2 – Toning Exercises for toning and lifting saggy/droopy muscles
3 – Sculpting Exercises for shaping specific lower body areas
4 – Firming Exercises for tightening up mushy muscles and skin

In this lower body exercise video, I guide you through a combo sequence of four body-weight exercises which target the legs, glutes (butt) and thighs. These will also get the mid and lower back working as well. This mini-workout can be done as a stand alone exercise routine – or you can combine it with the other free lower body exercises on this website – or in my complete, home and travel exercise programs for purchase (e-manuals,dvds, etc…)



This body-weight exercise sequence includes the four following lower-body moves:

1 – Double Leg, Hamstring Curls

Lying down on a mat or soft surface, facing up – place your heels and calves on top of an exercise ball (55cm or 65cm is ideal). Arms on the ground at your sides. Lift your hips off the ground by pushing your heels and calves into the ball. That is your starting position. Then curl your heels in toward your hamstrings, while pushing your hips toward the sky. Stop when the bottom of your feet are on top of the ball. Then slowly return the the starting position.

2 – Double Leg, Knee-Ups

Get onto your hands and knees – on an exercise mat or soft surface. Bring your toes forward. Then slowly lift your knees off the ground and get your glutes up toward the sky – so your legs are almost fully straightened. Then slowly return to the start position – lightly touching your knees to the ground.

3 – Double Sided Hip-Extensions

Lying down face-up now. Bend your knees and point your toes upward – so your heels are the only part of your feet touching the floor or mat. Push your heels into the ground and lift your hips toward the sky. Give a slight pause at the top. Then slowly lower your hips to touch the mat. Breath out on the way up (as you exert) and breath in on the way down (as you relax).

4 – Exercise Ball Squats

Place an exercise ball (size 55cm – 65cm) against a wall and then lean against it with your lower back area. With your feet shoulder width apart – slowly squat down as the ball rolls up toward your upper back/shoulder blade area. Pause for a second or two – then slowly return to the top position, keeping a slight bend in the knees at the top. Breath in going down – breath out going up.

If going through this body-weight exercise circuit is too easy – try it a second and third time. You can also add 5 or 10 repetitions to each set for a longer exercise sessions and a more intense challenge.

As always – I remind you to get your doctor’s medical clearance for exercise before starting from scratch – or if you are unsure about your own physical ability.

After you’ve tried the workout – please post your feedback and comments below – and then, please do share this with anyone else you know who can benefit from this kind of helpful fitness information.

Slim In 6 Review: Inside Scoop by Exercise Physiologist On Slim In 6

Thursday, November 19th 2009

_____________________________________________________________

This Slim In 6 Review is entirely based on feedback from clients I’ve worked with over the past 5 years – and information from the Slim in 6 website.

I’ll cut right to the chase here… Some women have told me they got the body enhancing results they wanted – and others told me they have not.

This doesn’t surprise me – as this is pretty typical. That being said – I can assure you this… knowing of Debbie Sieber’s personal story – and professional history – I’m willing to bet the program is a well rounded – properly targeted routine.

It’s also safe to say – the big bosses at Product Partners (the parent company of BeachBody; which markets the Slim In 6 program – along with several others) don’t seem like the kind of business people to risk their reputation on trashy fitness products. So, there is surely a level of quality and integrity that has gone into the program.

Is every woman who buys the program thrilled with it? No – you can never make everyone happy. It simply goes with the territory… This is the same thing with my programs – There will always be some people who can’t be satisfied.

So – what do you get with the Slim In 6 package?

1 – A main DVD with 3 programs on it.

2 – Several tracking tools.

3 – 2 bonus DVDs

4 – A 6-Day diet plan

5 – A resistance band

The program comes with a 6-week money back guarantee – for a price of $72.80 (includes s & h)

So – Is it worth it?

There’s only one way for you to find out. Buy it – go all out with it for 5 weeks – and if you are not happy with the program in that short period of time – Return the package for your refund.

I was never crazy about any fitness or weight loss product with a short money-back guarantee policy. This is the main reason I always offer a One-Year ‘Sexy Results’ Guarantee period on all my DVDs…

In the real world – 5 or 6 weeks simply isn’t enough to really test out any program. And before you know it – the time has gone by – and you can’t get a refund after you’ve had a chance to be on the program for a decent amout of time, which usually goes beyond 6 weeks…

And – in addition to that – my laser targeted – 2-DVD set called ‘The Ultimate Leg, Butt, Hip & Thigh Makeover’ can be shipped straight to your doorstep – no matter which country you live in for only $39.97 plus shipping. And yes – you have a full 12 months to see incredibly stunning results, right in the privacy of your own home – or you just send me back the dvds and get your money back.

No questions asked. All I ask is that you send me your incredible success story, by email, one you are satisfied with the dramatic improvements of your body.
