Summar bod goals are definitely a thing and every year many of us find ourselves in the same spot: freaking out about how we’re going to get in shape.

Some of us just wait, hoping our bodies will magically transform into that sick bod à la Cardi B from Money:

However, it’s rarely that easy.  Gym memberships, workout fads, trendy diets. They’ve all come and gone. The one thing I haven’t tried is a personal trainer but that’s way too expensive, right?

We all know the struggle.

Too intimidated to go the meathead gym? Or don’t speak the language?

Or Maybe you’ve already used your smartphone to work out and scrolled through the endless array of fitness apps out there. But which ones are worth your hard earned coins?

The right one can give you that boost you need to get through your workout or cover basic stretching and advanced yoga.

But it’s almost summer, so you push yourself.

I. WILL. GET. THAT. SUMMER. BOD.

Enter the Magic Fitness App:

Personal training can lead to better results since they know which buttons to push to help you achieve your goals.

Every session with the Magic Fitness App is customized and built just for you.

Want to lose some weight? Build up those biceps? Tone those pompis? Your Magic Fitness personal trainer is there to help you reach these goals.

With the app, getting fit doesn’t have to be frustrating. You’ll start loving exercise and feel amazing and full of energy every day.

But like most things in life, it’s important to build a habit and if you can complete 4-5 sessions in two weeks you’ll be well on your way to achieving your health and fitness goals.

That’s why this is so great. When you use the Magic Fitness App you get a real-life person trainer in a one-to-one video. You won’t waste two hours traveling to/from the gym. Or be on the hook if your plans change. And you’ll get expert training.

I mean, you don’t wanna be this person.

No tea, no shade but like, huh?

But what is it actually going to be like? Will it be awkward?

Magic sessions start with 5 mins of warm-up and end with 5 mins of stretching and breathing – for a total of 30 mins. You’ll be surprised at the progress you see with a certified trainer watching you the entire time. You’ll feel strong and successful, confident and alive, and your goals will suddenly seem very much within reach.

An appointment with a real human being keeps you accountable – so you show up, which is half the battle.

Your trainer will tell you what to do, count your reps and correct your form – so you’re more efficient and avoid injury.

They also provide the right support and motivation just when you need it – so you accomplish more every time.

Using a trainer will seriously revolutionize your workouts. You’ll get more done faster and achieve your health and fitness goals in far less time. In fact, research at Michigan State found that you are 98% more likely to achieve your goals if you work out with a friend or trainer.

Technology is great but there’s no substitute for empathy and human connection.

Especially when tackling something hard like exercise. And sometimes tough love can be the difference between giving up and pushing through.

So let’s get this straight:

  • One-on-one video training means you don’t have to leave your house
  • No intimidating gyms to travel to
  • Spanish-speaking trainers mean everyone can participate
  • Sessions are only 30-minutes long

With Magic Fitness, you’ll totally crush your workout goals!

This Instagram Page Is Doing The Work To Identify And Expose The People Who Stormed The Capitol

After a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Jan. 6, people immediately started identifying the intruders. Videos have been circulating and people are steadily contacting the FBI to expose them. Instagram page @homegrownterrorists is one of the leading forces in identifying the rioters.

On Jan. 6, people stormed our Capitol building and the American people are demanding justice.

Images of people storming the Capitol building and looting the offices of members of Congress startled people around the world. One of the safest places in the world was overrun by far-right Trump supporters attacking the democratic process. Americans are demanding justice and working together to identify and report as many people to the FBI that were at the Capitol.

The Instagram page is unapologetically encouraging followers to identify people at the Capitol.

Five people died as a result of the riot, two of them were police officers. The Instagram page, run anonymously, is encouraging people to share the photos to their stories to increase the reach. The account might not have any legal power, but it is having some success. There has been more than one person identified through the IG page that has led to people losing jobs and being arrested by the FBI.

The account has disappeared multiple times but always comes back.

The mystery person running the account has expressed concern over their safety. The account has been suspended by Instagram after being reported by multiple people. There has even been some talk about them receiving threats of violence via DMs.

The person who runs the account has mentioned it randomly on their stories but with no real detail. According to recent stories, the person behind the account doesn’t want to antagonize the people sending threats.

The owner of the account did say that they have been contacted by Instagram about the account.

A tweet from HomeGrownTerrorists caught Instagram’s attention and the account was reinstated. However, there was a backup account to keep functioning in case the original got deleted. IG and the account owner reached an agreement where they get to keep the main account and the backup account was permanently banned. No questions asked.

If you want to help or be connected to the cause, you can follow this page on Instagram.

There are a lot of people left to identify and the nation’s law enforcement is bracing for more violence. Capitols in all 50 states are on alert for possible attacks and the National Guard is being mobilized in big numbers for the inauguration. We are not out of the woods when it comes to the threats that have been made.

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”
