Its 7am. The sun is barely up. Kavika and I are at the beach getting ready for our first morning workout together with his new physical, mental, and spiritual training brand, Morelife Wellness.
Kavika was the starting safety at Fort Walton Beach a few years back and has a lot of experience training with other athletes, most of them being football players that are now playing in college or growing to higher levels of fitness.
I was a little nervous about my ability to handle his workout but I knew it would push me to the next level. We started out with ladders and I’ve done ladders before but the resistance of the soft deep sand made it tough. We ended the workout with a bamboo stick and buckets of water on each end. We did lunges, squats, and arm curls with the stick and it was tough. Kavika helped me dig deep giving me the desire and will to complete the workout. He showed me something I didnt know I had.
“Come on, one more set bro” Kavika said as I hesitantly put the stick and buckets of water on my shoulders.
“I dont know if I got it in me bro” I replied.
“You never know until you try it”
I was motivated to take a couple of wobbly lunges until I made it half way and started to get my balance and more confidence.
“See! you don’t know how strong you are bro. Lets gooo. You got this.”
It took everything I had in me but I managed to complete the workout. It was only a 30 minute workout but it left my muscles exhausted in a way they have never been exhausted before. I felt like I accomplished something. I saw what a little faith matched with a great friend could do.
After the workout, Kavika told me about his goals for Morelife Wellness and how he wants to build people up in their spirit and not just in there physical. He also plans to make it about cleaning the community beaches as well by influencing his clients to take a minute to pick up trash on the beaches. I believed in his mission wholeheartedly and we became two guys with a dream to help others helping each other haha.
I continued to work out with Kavika for the remainder of the summer for about two months and I see the improvement in my strength and my overall well being. I believe what he is building will bring a lot of joy and good spirit to Okaloosa County.
