Do you want to become a certified fitness professional? If so, you're in the right place! In this blog post, we will discuss the steps that you need to take to achieve your goal. Becoming a certified fitness professional is a great way to improve your career prospects and establish yourself as an authority in the field. So let's get started!

1. Choose Your Area of Specialization

When it comes to becoming a certified fitness professional, one of the most important decisions that you will need to make is deciding which area of specialization you want to focus on. Do you want to specialize in working with athletes? Or maybe you're more interested in helping people lose weight or improve their overall health. No matter what your interests are, there is a certification that will suit your needs.

2. Choose the Right Certification Program

So how do you go about choosing the right certification? One thing to keep in mind is that not all certifications are created equal. Some are more reputable than others, so it's important to do your research before making a decision. The best way to determine whether a particular certification is right for you is to speak with people who are already working in the field.

Also, consider your goals, interests, and experience level when making your decision. If you're just getting started in the fitness industry, a basic certification program will give you the foundation you need to start your career.

If you're looking to specialize in a specific area of fitness, there are advanced certification programs that will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to succeed. For instance, if you want to become a kettlebell instructor, you can complete an online kettlebell certification program.

The end of the pandemic remains nowhere in sight, but cases are getting milder and milder, thanks to the vaccines. Aside from getting vaccinated, you can give yourself and your loved ones more protection by leading a healthy lifestyle. Exercise, leaving bad vices behind, and sleep can only contribute so much to your journey to health, and to win half the trip, you also need to switch to a nutritious diet.

If you're not a fan of greens and fruits, eating healthy is a challenge, but when you turn it into an activity you and your family can enjoy, you can grow your love for wholesome meals. To begin, here are some food ideas you can try. 

Drink Your Fruits

Fruit smoothies are an excellent way of making your little ones love fruits. When you ditch processed juices and commercially-sold shakes, you also save yourself and your loved ones from copious amounts of sugar.

By making smoothies with fresh fruits like blueberries, bananas, and mango with the milk of your choice daily, you get to benefit from antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals. You can also add a dash of chia seeds or flax meal and even a scoop of collagen to make them healthier.

Being a mother can be rewarding but also very stressful. There are so many new things to learn and take care of, and it can feel like there's not enough time in the day to take care of your needs. But making sure you're happy and healthy is a vital part of being a good parent for your child.

1. Get Enough Sleep

Many mothers find it difficult to get enough sleep with a new baby in the house, but lack of sleep can lead to health problems like depression and anxiety. Make sure you're getting at least six hours or more if possible. Taking naps when your child does can help you feel well-rested throughout the day.

2. Eat Healthy Foods

Having a child adds so many expenses to your life, so making sure you eat properly is very important for maintaining both mental and physical health. Ensure that most of your meals are balanced, and don't worry about depriving yourself of certain "treat" items every once in a while! Eating healthily will also make it easier for you to lose any extra weight you may have gained while pregnant.


Technology has indeed become a big part of our lives—how we move, how we work or learn, how we think. Essentially, technology allowed us to live life with more ease and convenience.

But it is still not as ubiquitous as it may seem. Somehow, technology still doesn’t click for everyone, especially those whose access is still limited. Many are also averse to its wonders, thinking it has made people lazy, too dependent on machines, ignored critical thinking, etc.

However, just like what the Bible says: “The love of money is the root of all evil.” The verse did not say money is not the root of all evil; the “love” of money is. In this case, technology is not bad; we need it to make our lives somewhat easier (not to make people lazy) and better.

That is why here in the Philippines, a group of young and visionary individuals decided to establish a party-list group that will push technology to be a big part of Filipinos’ lives not just in highly urbanized cities (HUCs) but also in the countryside. Through groundbreaking legislation, Computer Literacy, Innovation, Connectivity and Knowledge, or simply “CLICK” party-list, dreams of making technology change the way we live, work, play, learn, even govern, from the traditional and cumbersome, to the digital and high-technology, in order to make life better for everyone.

Taiwan is an amazing place to visit for anyone looking for some local culture mixed with interesting history. Plus, there are many things to do in Taiwan for families and couples alike!

Before you visit, be prepared by learning these facts about place.

Where Is Taiwan?

Taiwan is an island in East Asia, located off the southeastern coast of mainland China. Taiwan is controlled by the Republic of China (ROC) government-in-exile, which took refuge on the island following its defeat to Communist forces during the Chinese Civil War. It's currently holding control over only a few smaller islands surrounding Taipei, the second largest city in East Asia.

When Is the Best Time to Go to Taiwan?

Taiwan is home to four distinct seasons. The country has warm summers and cold winters, with temperatures varying greatly depending on the region of Taiwan you are in.

With that said, there isn't really a bad time to visit Taiwan, just different times for different activities. Generally speaking, the best times to go are between March and June or September to November.

If you are planning a beach vacation, you will be disappointed. Taiwan's beaches can get quite cool in the winter months. Instead, try going to one of the many hot springs Taiwan is famous for or go hiking up one of Taiwan's mountains.

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death in America. Although it can be difficult to prevent diabetes, many steps can be taken to reduce your chances of developing this condition. If you want to live a longer, healthier life, here's what you need to know.

What are the Types of Diabetes?

The three main types of diabetes are Type 1, Type 2, and gestational. Here's how they differ:

Type 1 Diabetes - An Autoimmune Disorder

This occurs most often during childhood or adolescence. The pancreas does not make insulin, the hormone that moves glucose from the bloodstream into the body's cells, where it can be used for energy. Instead of being transported to the cells, sugar builds up in the blood, causing various symptoms.

Type 2 Diabetes - A Lifestyle Disease

This is the most common form of diabetes, accounting for about 90 to 95 percent of all cases in the United States. The pancreas still makes insulin, but the body does not respond to it as well as it should. Type 2 diabetes is associated with lifestyle factors such as being overweight and lack of exercise.
