Its 7 a.m. The sun is barely up. Kavika and I are at the beach getting ready for our first morning workout together. I seen him on intagram training college football athletes with his new physical, mental, and spiritual training brand, Morelife Wellness and I wanted to try it out for myself.Kavika was the starting safety for the Fort Walton Beach Highschool football team a few years back. Therefore, he has a lot of experience training with other athletes. Most of his former teammates are now playing college football 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 agility ladders. I’ve done ladders before but never done them on the beach. 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 on my shoulders. Kavika had me do lunges and squats with the weight of the water on my back. It was the most challenging workout I ever did.
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 ” 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 spirits and in their bodies. He also plans to make it about cleaning the community beaches by influencing his clients to take a minute to pick up trash on the beaches.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.
