Workout of My Week Vol. #006 – Get Stable

Fitness does not need to be complicated but it does need to challenge you.  That is unless your Heart Rate Variability is telling you that today needs to be a recovery day or a you-can-workout-but-dial-down-your-intensity type of day.  My body is going through some weird stuff lately, I’m detoxing (still), not thrilled with the weather […]

Client Spotlight: Meet Zack

Considering that we are fresh off of the NCAA tourney, I thought this would be the perfect week to share Zack’s story with you.  His particular story is uniquely special.  Zack was referred to me through the encouragement of his super spectacular mom April whom I was already working with when I met Zack.  We’d known each […]

Workout of My Week Vol.#005 – True Stretch Baby!

A few months ago. I joined my local Planet Fitness because I wanted a little variety to my workouts and access to a few pieces of equipment that I don’t and won’t put into my home gym.  One thing I LOVE about my PF location is that it has one of my favorite pieces of […]

How to Plan Meals in a Time Crunch

Life is no longer linear or simple. Whoever you are, whatever role you play, if you ever have to feed yourself or someone else for any stretch of time, whether that’s for a month, a week, or even a day, you may spend an inordinate amount of time deciding what to make. The task seems […]

Rockin’ Recipe: Blackberry Moe-jito

Late summer is kickin’ in so here’s a healthy mocktail recipe for you! Summer is my most favorite season of all and I came up with this recipe when I was going through Lyme disease and mold illness treatment.
