Better health involves constantly upgrading and utilizing new technologies that are readily available to improve your life.  Based on my knowledge of the industry, these are the three products you need in your life to live better. Progressing your physical self helps improve all other areas of life. These three upgrades will increase your body's ability to function and give you the health and energy to master the day.

1. Nutribullet Rx

This blender is a beast.  The three horsepower does the chewing(X100) for you.   This machine breaks down food using nutrient extraction technology to drive all the nutrients to the cell level.  Create the best smoothies and acai bowls of all time with this thing. 

This is the best health related purchase I have made in the last 5 years.  If you follow me on social media (@Bret_Gornik), you know I use this every day.

It is crucial that we have a nutrition plan full of fruits and vegetables.  It is even more important to consume these foods in the best way possible.  None of us chew our food enough - we should chew around 25 times per bite.  This makes it easier on your digestive tract to breakdown all of the nutrients. A handful of raw kale may not be the tastiest item, but blended with the right fruits, superfoods, and raw honey… now that is a flavorful and nutrient dense meal.

2. Hyperice Hypersphere

This vibrating sphere helps break down soft tissue fibers to create more mobility in our muscles.  Due to its size, it is perfect for on the go use.  Foam rolling is great, but adding the vibration with this intensity and frequency takes it to another level.  This helps you warm up, cool down, recover, and move better overall. 

This is the best mobility tool on the market.  In my handstand journey, I work on my shoulders every day with this product to increase range of motion.  I also use this tool with all of my clients.  The ability to warm up different tight or sore spots in a fraction of the time gives my clients the opportunity to reach their goals much faster.

We all have tights spots on our bodies - mostly in our hips, lower back, and shoulders.  Being mobile helps you do the simple things like reaching something in a cabinet, as well as the hard things, like dead lifting 300 pounds.  Whether you are a weekend warrior or professional athlete, you need to be able to move to be healthy.

3. Earthing Mat

When we make direct contact with the earth, we take in its natural energy.  Earthing is a fast-growing movement based upon the discovery that connecting to the Earth’s natural energy is foundational for vibrant health.   Earthing uses the negative charge of the earth to neutralize your body, while providing a multitude of other positive benefits.  Being isolated from the Earth by non-conductive materials, such as rubber and plastic (our shoes), wood, laminate, and asphalt, shields us from the earth's benefits.  An earthing mat is an easy way to always stay connected.

I use this mat every day while I work and sleep.  The technology is simple and all you need to do is put your bare feet on the mat for it to work.  Yes, this one may seem a little bit out there, but I assure you that it is safe and effective.  You can achieve the same results by walking barefoot on the grass, but for those of us who live in the city finding grass that you can walk on barefoot is very rare!  With this mat, you can reap the benefits of connecting to the earth without actually going outside.

Everyone has different areas of inflammation in the body.  The root of all illness and pain is excess inflammation.  Decreasing this irritation gives you more freedom to move.  If you want to feel the best you can, you need to decrease inflammation.

 

Continuing to upgrade your toolkit is the best way to stay on top of your wellness.  The Nutribullet RX takes care of nutrition, the Hypersphere keeps you mobile, and the Earthing Mat keeps you fresh.
