 SUPPORT! This show focuses on how important it is to have a support system. The ladies’ journey not only impacts their own lives, but the lives of their families and friends, who are featured in this episode to offer their full support and rev up the fun.

Game On! The ladies head to Central Park in Florida, where Sporting goods giant Sports Authority provides the team with sports equipment from bikes, basketballs, and kayaks to tennis rackets, helmets and soccer balls to encourage the women to rediscover activities the whole family can enjoy and make fitness fun again.  At the end of family and friends day, Sports Authority generously gives each woman the gear to keep!

Lifestyle Game! Dr. Andi, a Naturopathic Doctor from Truestar Health, meets up with the ladies again to explain Truestar’s online exercise portal so whole family can exercise together.  Users can put their goals in to create a full 7 day program including rest days! The site offers over 3000 videos including a boot camp video, and 17,000 recipes that the whole family can cook up together, plus The Lifestyle Game which everyone can join in on all in the comfort of their homes.

Raise the fitness “bar”! Power squats and pushups are on the agenda as Braaap Nutrition’s Founder and fitness guru Shauna pushes the ladies to the limit. After a tough workout, the team learns about the benefits of Braaap’s all-natural protein energy bars made with Colorado honey and coconut oil for healthy snacking, and the Paleo Diet Bar for meal replacement. Plus, they’ll hear how the name Braaap came about!

Getting your zzzzz’s! The ladies are enlightened about the difference between a good night’s rest and a bad one, the optimum number of hours of sleep, and tips for insomnia from Brittany Colatella and Alvise Bertoncello from Technogel Sleeping. The right mattress and pillow can make a difference in how feel they sleep at night and how well they feel during the day. Technogel’s new gel technology offers the right balance of comfort and support for better rest and better fitness success.
