The media week

Hello, dears!

Have you missed me? I´ve missed you a lot!

Since I got the honor to be included in the Top 100 fitness blogs, things have gone crazy. I’ve been interviewed on TV and the radio this week and messages and emails keep coming. So, I want to apologize for being missing in action this week. Hopefully, everything will go back to normal next week, or i will adjust to the new «normal» next week, and I will be able to read your post as I was used to. 

Also, I want to thank you for your patience and support, none of this would be possible without you!

I know you probably won´t understand a word of Galician (it´s similar to Portuguese), but I want to share the TV interview anyway, haha! 

Have a great weekend!

I´m going to enjoy some rest…

well deserved rest, I think.

Glenda sent me fabulous gifts

I was having breakfast this morning and I received a package from Glenda. A couple of weeks ago she told me she was going to send me some shirts but somehow, she managed to include some touching surprises in the package!

Without a doubt, I´m blessed with the best clients on the planet!! More than clients, they become friends. In this job, confidentiality is a must and I´m only allowed to brag about some of them. As you may know, Glenda won one of my giveaways and, since day one she gave me permission to share her pics, measurements, and anything I could need to promote my business. I have to say that this is unusual, my clients prefer to keep anonymous, most of the times. But Glenda is also unusually amazing!!

Glenda, sunshine, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Now, I know you are curious and want to know what was in the package. I opened the package and put all the contents on the table. There were three shirts and two more unexpected items.

A super funny postcard:

This is already hanging on my wall, close to the pc screen so I´m going to read that I´m outstanding every day from now on :)

Also, the package included an amazing knit prayer pocket for my mother (she will go to surgery soon to remove some kidney stones and Glenda has been praying since she knew about it). I can´t thank Glenda enough for that! and this prayer pocket is just too much.

And three wonderful Under Armour shirts that I promise that you will see me wearing and sweating in the next exercise videos.

I couldn´t feel better, happier or more motivated. And after publishing this post, I´m going to use the green shirt for the first time, because I love it :D

I wish you a day as great as mine!

Top 100 Fitness Blogs and Websites on the planet

TOP 100 FITNESS BLOGS ON THE PLANET

I am so excited by this news that my hands tremble!!! Where do I begin? At the beginning, you are right.

As you know, the fitness industry is hard and publicizing an internet business is possibly even harder. For these reasons, I am always looking for ways to promote my business. Last weekend, I found the list of the best 100 blogs and websites to follow, provided by Feedspot.

What´s Feedspot? It´s a RSS Reader. If you’re trying to keep up with news and content on multiple webs, Feedspot allows you to put all of your reading in one place.

There is an impressive amount of fitness blogs out there and this list includes the best on the planet like Men´s Fitness, Reebok Fitness Blog, MyFitnessPal Blog, ACE (American Council on Exercise), or Anytime Fitness Blog, just to name a few blogs among the top 10.

Call me foolish, but I decided to submit my blog, with little or no hope of accessing the list. I would be happy to enter the Feedspot fitness blog directory and get some more readers. That´s what I expected. What I got, so you can guess by the title of this post, was to enter the list. I am not in the position #100, or #99, not even #90 or #80. Dear friends, my blog is on the list at number 73, which is not bad if you realize that I do not have a team working on this blog. Just me!

I am so happy and proud right now… that I´m going  to take  the rest of the day off!! I think you will agree with me… From time to time a break is necessary to savor the achievements and victories. This news is both an achievement and a sweet victory after a long time blogging. 

Don´t worry, I will return with new content and much more energy before you realize that I have taken a day off, I promise.

I’m looking forward to climbing some positions. I know I will never make #1 but, top 50? I´m going to try it.

From a small Spanish coastal town to the top 100 fitness blogs on the planet, today is a day to remember and celebrate!

Thank you all, lot of love and, as always, big hugs!!

David.

Reblog: Mliae is back at work

Yesterday, I had a long and refreshing chat with my friend and former client, Mliae. Long story short, it looks like she needs a little help again to get in shape again, and we´re going to achieve her goals, one more time. For sure!

I follow the strict policy of not sharing the details of my clients, they have their privacy and they share only what they want to share. So if you want to know more, pay her a visit and follow on her new fitness journey.
