But why is our Christmas in July a good reminder for you? Read on and i'll explain how this can supercharge your fitness with your July check-in!​​ 1. What health and fitness goals did you set for yourself in January? Looking back at what you set for yourself, or didn't set for yourself will help you choose what you want to achieve the back half of 2019.

  • Being sneaky about your dark green leafys!!

    Being sneaky about your dark green leafys!!

    How did Popeye do it?
    Ok, full disclosure, I'm not a fan of dark green vegetables. Yes, I know, they are fantastic for your health, they are part of a balanced diet, and great for digestion...but I am NOT a fan of consuming it raw! I always think back to my childhood cartoon days of watching Popeye and seeing him grow big and strong after eating canned spinach. Every time it hit my plate as a kid, I had to think of Popeye and channel my inner sailor to eat that stuff! How did he do it? As an adult, I'm finding that rather than forcing myself to eat greens, I needed to get creative. Skipping them altogether, which many people do, can be detrimental to your health. Greens provide ....

Does it leave you unable to move? Are you limited in your life because of it, or does it cause frequent visits to the heating pad? Fact is, millions of people suffer from low back pain and mask its symptoms with pain relievers, muscle relaxers, and other medicines ....

  • Flipping on Flip Flops!

    Flipping on Flip Flops!

    Flip Flopping on Flip Flops The information is out there as to how orthotics can help your posture, back pain, and knee pain, to name a few. But orthotic flip flops? I was a skeptic until I learned more about it, and now I'm a proud owner of my own orthotic flip flops! ​​ Orthotic flip flops right out of the gate are different because they are custom made to YOUR foot. Boom. Feet are kind of like fingerprints, they are all different! Even though your size may be the same as someone else's, the way you walk on your foot and they way your foot is created makes yours pretty unique! Since summer is just around the corner (June 21st to be exact!), the shoe of ....

  • I "get" to...

    I "get" to...

    Are you thankful for your fitness? When you walk in our door, do you yell, "Thank you"? After this story, maybe you will! This happened to me last week and I thought, since it is Memorial Day​ ​ it would be the perfect time to share it: I was walking with a friend of mine and we were chatting about our workouts, our family lives, and how some things are just plain busy. We lamented how it can be tough to fit exercise in due to schedules or feeling exhausted from our day. Sometimes, it seems there aren't enough hours to finish the laundry, let alone get the dishes done and prepare for the next day! Then she dropped this knowledge on me! She said, she heard how cancer ....
