Success Story – No more pain from Scoliosis
What is your why?
Here is your reason to exercise…to live life…not sit on the sidelines because you are unable to climb to the top. I do what I do in the gym so I can be strong enough to climb a ruin, zip line a jungle, climb out of a cave on a 50 foot ladder, or paddle a canoe. It saddened me to see people half my age have to stop halfway up, not out of fear,but because they weren’t strong enough physically. We have to exercise because we don’t live like this anymore. Nature is no longer our gym. If you aren’t happy where you are, the great news is anyone can get stronger no matter your age or current situation. What are you missing out on? I can help and it’s worth it #over40personaltraining #agelessliving #fitlife #bestlife #coach [Read more]
Healthy is the goal!
Meet Christine. We started working together in January and she consistently trains with me 2x per week. Look at these healthy improvements she has made in just 5 months – simply from beginning a workout routine. Health is so much more than a number on the scale (that will come too, I’m not worried). Her… [Read More]
What is it like to work with me?
What is your relationship with food?
Are you on the food hamster wheel?? I write a lot about food because that is where I come from, my experience, what I’m able to bring to my clients because I’ve been there… I’ve felt the guilt of eating “bad” foods for me. I’ve exercised (ran) as a way to “burn off” all the… [Read More]
Inflammation… what is it?
I am often asked about inflammation – what is it exactly? How do I know if I have it? What does it do to me? Inflammation is part of your body’s natural immune response, and occurs when your body tries to heal damaged cells, and fight off irritants and pathogens. Your arteries dilate, blood flow… [Read More]
What do sugar, heroin, and morphine have in common? Sugar – I don’t know very many people who don’t battle a problem with sugar at some point. Why is that? Why do we crave sugar? If you remember good ‘ol health class, when you get a hit of dopamine – a chemical neurotransmitter – it… [Read More]
Our fast paced society includes fast paced eating. We have drive thru’s so we eat in our cars. Our kids have less than 30 minute lunches to wolf down their food. We rush through dinner to get to our practices, rehearsals or take home work. Yet, we know the benefits of eating slowly. It… [Read More]
Don’t set New Years Resolutions
Resolve NOT to make a New Years’ resolution in 2018 You might find that odd advice from a health and wellness coach. Don’t get me wrong I am all for setting goals, using a vision board or whatever method you like for planning and achieving goals for the new year. However, inevitably New Years’ resolutions… [Read More]
Making Time vs Finding Time
Based on many conversations I’ve had with my clients, the biggest obstacle to being healthy: they run out of time. They know they “should” be taking care of themselves… that when they feel healthy they feel better about themselves… that exercise and proper nutrition give them energy to do all the things they want to… [Read More]
Commitment Challenge Winners
So happy to announce my Commitment Challenge winners Cheryl & Neha who earned tickets to the Movie House and Eatery! What did they do? They committed to their workouts in December, traditionally a month where clients find every excuse to not be available. It’s easy to have a busy holiday season come in the way… [Read More]
“What in the world will we eat for dinner tonight?” Meal Planning
How often have you picked up the kids in the evening and let them talk you into the local drive-through, because it was easier than going home and trying to figure out what to serve for dinner? If this ever happens to you, even occasionally, you are not alone! We live in what seem to… [Read More]
