What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

What is it about some people that can make certain exercises look so effortless? Why do some some people seem to be so fit and move so well? We all realize that being "fit" is far more than just being really lean or ripped. There's something about the way really fit people operate their bodies. Clearly, there's so much more to good training than just picking exercises for individual body parts.

What is it?!

​In this episode, you'll learn all about a somewhat recent buzz in the fitness industry called "functional" training. Find out more about your body's joints, your body's movement capacity, and the best way to train in order to capitalize on the way your body was made to move. 

Stop wasting your time and energy doing sub-par workouts. Learn exactly how your body was made to move, and then train it that way!

At the end of the episode, I answer YOUR questions:

  • Megan & Patricia ask: "What are you thoughts on intermittent fasting? It's seems so appealing but I assume it messes up metabolism long term?"
  • Heather asks: "How do I know how much weight to choose? I’m not very familiar with weight-lifting, I want to try it based on what I’ve been learning from you, but I’m a bit nervous."
