As a passionate enthusiast when it comes to personalities and country music, Tim Hicks always stood out to me the minute he hit the airwaves, and I was fortunate to have the opportunity to interview him on my radio show Nothing But Outdoors talking about his first singles and the love of the outdoors in 2012. Now we get the chance to get inside his thoughts on how fitness and health affects his touring and stage presence.

Mariya Mova was first introduced to the Fytness Fanatik community as our first model all the way from Australia. She has been with us for 12 years inspiring others and we wanted to share where her career path has led her.

We are all aware of the benefits of exercise, and in the past few years the media has increasingly bombarded us with fitness-related information, advice and products.

The message is everywhere, reminding us just how important that minimum standard thirty minutes of physical activity per day is, whether for disease prevention, health maintenance and overall wellness (and let’s face it, body image or vanity). Personally, I know that I am very fortunate to have experienced an upbringing by physically active parents who have been practicing the healthy lifestyle tips and tricks that some consumers are paying to learn, but I know that many people were not raised with that sort of background.
