Make-A-Wish Southern Florida has been granting wishes for local children with life-threatening medical ailments since 1983. The Foundation’s mission is that Make-A-Wish experiences have profound life-changing impacts not only on the children but their families, sponsors, donors, and their entire community. At Cycle Guroo we are so proud to be partnering with them, and holding a Charity Ride on October 27th at 5:30PM. All the money from that charity ride will go to help Make-A-Wish Foundation grant more wishes to those children. Cycle Guroo hopes you can all make it out!
Wow, time feels like it is going so slow but yet so fast because what we thought was our reality at one time, is something totally different now. Most of us can not remember what life was like 2 weeks ago. For those of you that remember, after the Great American Eclipse, I talked a lot about what you think your reality is and how it can change at any moment. Remember, reality is only a perception of what you are allowing your mind to experience and how you choose to respond to what you are seeing. I am not trying to express that Irma did not shift what we are now seeing or experiencing. This natural disaster definitely did! But, it also has pushed us into a reality of how do we want to respond and live in this New Earth or community we are now part of?
Irma is asking us:
How do we want to treat ourselves?
Do we want to beat ourselves up with guilt or judgement for our choices?
How do we want to treat others?
Do we want to make others feel guilty or judge them for their choices?
How do we want to treat our community?
Are we going to be kinder to the environment that we live in?
How are we going to show up for those that we care about?
Are we going to take off the mask of illusion and get vulnerable with others?
Are we going to admit that we cry because we are sad or mad and that it is OK because our tears are emotional sweat that needs to be released so we feel better and show that it is OK for others to emotionally sweat also?
Are we going to rise above the turmoil of this experience, put the faith in ourselves to take action, and let higher power guide us on this wild ride we are on right now?
This event occurred to remind us of who we are, what we want, how we are going to lead, what we are capable of, and how are we going to respond to life when it gives us contrast.
The biggest question is: Are we and can we harness our inner GUROO so others feel the ability to do so also?
Trust me, I have had moments. I am eating WAY to much. I have been consuming my fair share of cocktails and staying up past 10:00 PM the majority of nights. Let's just say, my life is NOT what it was 2 weeks ago. I was in the North Carolina mountains for a week with Max, Jessica and kids. I then jumped on a plane to NYC to attempt to get re-inspired. I am sleeping on a friend's couch and at moments have felt extremely displaced. Basically, I am ready for my own bed.
I have had moments of holy smokes: the studio has been closed for almost 2 weeks now due to no power. I am going nuts! What does this mean? Why am I experiencing this? Why am I not able to share my passion with others? How can I show up for people even when I am not there? Please Universe show me the way. And it is..... When I get silent in my head, when I get a text or an email from one of you, I remember what this is all for. It is to remind us that we are one and we are going to come back so strong from this physical break. Once power is restored in our community we are going to rebuild it and support those that need support the most. I am super excited about what is to come for us all. Please keep faith and trust in the inner GUROO that is YOU! You have this and it will not be long until we are back on those bikes and kicking your butts!!!! I see HIGH HIGH numbers on that board!!!
Unfortunately, we are still without power and they are scheduled to have it back on by September 22nd.

The big picture is an amazing thing and the big picture will come. You will attain it. But to get to the big picture you must go through the process.
Love every step of the process. Embrace the struggles and the hiccups. They are apart of your journey to get to where you want to go. Put your passion into loving and understanding your body at every point.
Appreciate yourself each time you get moving and do a workout. Thank yourself for every time you consciously choose to fill your body with nutritious foods. Practice gratitude for where you are at each and every day and you will see results.
Sometimes results show up in the form of adding more resistance to your bike or losing weight on the scale. Sometimes it's losing inches and being able to fit into an old pair of pants.
But the process is so much more than that. It's being able to walk up a flight of stairs and not getting winded. It's running around with your kids instead of setting them up in front of the tv because you're too tired to play. It's buying delicious produce and knowing where your food is coming from instead of putting your trust in the fast food industry.
The little things you do on a daily basis add up in big ways. Consciously eat one scoop of ice cream instead of binge eating the carton and you can save yourself hundreds of calories. On a busy day commit to a workout for 10 minutes and give your body the gift of movement; shut down bad DNA while giving your mind the clarity that it needs to rock your busy day.
Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is dedicated to the cure and the care of families with loved ones suffering from this disease. For more than 65 years MDA has been dedicated to helping and caring for the lives of children and adults living with muscular dystrophy and other related life-threatening diseases. By 2020 with the money that has been raised for this association they want to: provide support for 50,000 families, be able to fund 20,000 children at an MDA summer camp, which would be no extra expense for families, and be able to double the research investment needed to hold clinical trials to bring treatments, and cures to these families. With your donation through our charity ride, we can help MDA make an impact on their goals, and help these loved ones suffering from muscular dystrophy. Hope you all can make it out to this awesome event!
August 25th @ 5:30PM DJ Jerm's will be taking it to the turn tables for Happy Hour Cycle! After class stay for a healthy happy hour provided by Tacos & Tequila.
You can sign up with class pass & donate separately or $30 for ride and donation! All to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Southwest Florida!
This is a happy hour you do NOT want to miss!
Summertime is approaching fast and it is starting to get caliente out! Here is one of Jasmine's favorite smoothie bowls to cool her off and give her the fuel she needs to cycle & dance the summer nights away!
Blend all frozen fruits together until smooth & thick but not a drink:
1/2 cup Mango 1/2 cup pineapple 1/2 of banana 1 cup Coconut Milk
After blending, pour into your favorite bowl. Top it off with 1/4 cup of shredded coconut and 1/4 cup of blueberries. Add a garnish of mint for beauty and added freshness.
I often get asked, “I am experiencing cramping in my legs, what do I do?” My response is ALWAYS hydrate, hydrate, hydrate WITHElectrolytes. Cycling classes are designed to be high-intensity and calorie burning. You are going to sweat a lot even if the fan is on you. Our goal is to make sure you work your butt off! When we workout, our bodies are using the energy and resources within to sustain the amount of force and energy we are exerting. A problem we often run into is replenishing the body with water but not the essential electrolytes (minerals) it needs to run effectively and efficiently through out the day. When our electrolytes are depleted our inner body starts to malfunction. We get cramps and other displeasing side effects.
What are electrolytes? Electrolytes are the smallest chemicals in our body that allow our bodies to perform at optimum results. Some high sugar sports drinks claim to replenish your “electrolytes”. The energy you are getting is really a sugar HIGH! When choosing to replenish your electrolytes you want to make sure it has what you really need, not a temporary fix. These are the 5 electrolytes the body needs:
HELLO!!! Sugar is NOT on the list. Through much experiment, I have found the best way to add these electrolytes into my lifestyle is through Nuun tablets. I do not have any affiliation with this product besides being a consumer. I believe from the use of Nuun and I have tried tons of other products; my body is performing better than ever. I rarely experience cramping or the other side effects of electrolyte depletion.
You can get Nuun at Whole Foods, Naples Cyclery, Bike Route, or their website nunnlife.com
If you have any questions, I would love to discuss in further.
