Geisa has been a member of Bent On Better for over three years and is a wife and mother of two lovely girls. She lives in West Chester and owns a business.
In her early years, Geisa was introduced to the sport of running. Because of the early runs she went with her father, an avid marathon runner, they discovered she had the stamina to train for long-distance running. While in elementary and high school, she excelled at track and cross country. Her parents have always been active, and her sister was also a sports enthusiast. Fitness and athletics were an essential part of her upbringing, so she’s made it a point to be active throughout her life.
On Stress Management:
Geisa has always been a night owl. If you’re a working professional, getting a good night’s sleep isn’t at the top of your priority list. But through time, she has learned that enough sleep is the best way to deal with the stresses of daily life. As a result, she now ensures that she gets at least seven hours of sleep each night.
Geisa’s fitness path has also been influenced by her diet and nutrition habits. Cutting the number of calories or limiting food intake alone does not guarantee weight loss. The key is to increase the consumption of specific foods.
Along with sleep and diet, Geisa incorporates meditation into her daily routine. We can deal with unpleasant situations more patiently and tolerably with a clear head. By concentrating on what we can influence, we free up our time and energy to pursue the things that mean most to us, such as self-improvement, time with loved ones, volunteer work, and pursuing our passions.
Having a healthy lifestyle entails several components such as stress management, sleep, nutrition, hydration, cardio, and fitness, that we can’t just pick one or the other; it’s all of them; but if you are not able to do all those things, start with just one and one makes a difference.
Geisa encourages everyone to learn a new fitness skill, try cross-training, and learn something that will improve their chosen sport or activity. And if you’re doing something but not seeing any results, Geisa suggests:
“Expand your horizons and look around to see what else is out there. There are people out there who want to help, trainers who can help people look in different directions for their fitness journey and make it better.” – Geisa C.
