Yep, it’s true. But unfortunately, most people prescribe to the idea that if a little bit of exercise is good, then more is better. They push hard and go hard, believing a day off is a waste of time, or, even better, a day off is for the weak. Benefits of Active Recovery […]

You wake up from a miserable night of sleep and start drinking coffee to wake up and get going. You’re running late to the office or dropping your kids off at school, followed by sitting in traffic (or, depending on where you live, waiting for a delayed ferry!). You’re overwhelmed by emails, managing and meeting […]
I’m writing this as I hang out in bed, recovering from my second cold in two months. I’m not one to get sick, I’m healthy and strong, but so far this year, I’m fighting the battle. Why? What’s different? The only thing that I can come up with is the training program I’m following […]
I am so excited to share my favorite piece of fitness equipment with you, the TRX Suspension Trainer! The TRX was created by Randy Hetrick and was born in the Navy SEALS. I was fortunate to meet Randy back in 2005 at a fitness conference and have been using the TRX ever since. Personally, as […]
What’s good for our bodies is good for our brains! We can improve our brain health, focus, and attention, maintain our energy level, sleep better, and elevate our mood by moving our bodies a little bit each day.

You’re only as strong as your weakest link. And unfortunately, for most, that’s the core. How do you know if you have a weak core? Do you have poor posture when you sit, stand, and walk? Do your shoulders slump forward? Is it challenging for you to sit or stand straight? A […]
Have you noticed you’re moving slower, not quite as agile, stumbling more due to a loss of balance and coordination, finding it challenging to find names and words, is it harder to pay attention, and multi-task? Just like other muscles in your body, if you neglect to challenge your brain, it gets lazy and atrophies. […]
I hate to be cold, wet, and muddy, but I am obsessed with the Spartan Sprint. It’s an obstacle course race designed to challenge you in many ways! And, when you cross that finish line, I promise you will be so proud of yourself for completing this challenging race. The feeling of pride is overwhelming! […]
You’re home from vacation, and you feel terrible. You overate, drank too much, and you probably didn’t exercise as much as you thought you would. You gained a few pounds. You’re left feeling bloated, dehydrated, fatigued, you have a foggy brain, a low-grade headache, and are sleeping like crap at night? Sound familiar? I have […]
At 55, I love to be active and compete when I can. As many of you know, I enjoy running trails, being on my mountain bike, hiking mountains, and just being outside enjoying nature when I can. The beautiful thing is, there are women out there in their 60’s and 70’s, doing the same thing, […]
