For the Love of Food & Health

I love food! And really who doesn't? What I do not like about food is grocery shopping and wedding thru food items that manufacturers are trying to sell as healthy when I do actually partake in a grocery shopping trip. I enjoy preparing food at home when I have ample time to do it in […]

Fall Client Transformation - 1 Month In

In her own words: Marietta reflecting on her first month of refocusing her energy & goals. After week one of getting restarted on my workouts and goals I was down and out with bronchitis and pneumonia. I thankfully caught the possible severity of it early enough to get on the right medication and got better […]

Client Transformation: Marietta's Story in her own words....

I have always struggled with my weight. I have done Weight Watchers 3x, participated in Zumba, walking and have been a member at other gyms but never stuck with it. I am the type of person who needs accountability and "tough love" neither of which I have ever had. I would start out with a […]

Lisa's 3-Month Transformation...

Three months ago we started tracking Lisa's progress publicly. Fitness & nutrition comes with many ups and downs as Lisa had experienced but we are so happy to report that she is back on track to the best version of herself after some hard work this summer and navigating all the challenges of daily life […]

Nutrition & You or Me: Doing what you think you cannot do......

I have been a student of health & fitness since the early 90's, before you could find your desired dietary answer on the google machine. Academically, experientially, additional education, studying, reading and learning from other professionals has kept me active in enhancing my life. In the work we do with clients, nutrition is critical and […]

Nature is the answer to whatever the question may be.......

In 2017 we traveled to Alaska and that is when I reconnected to the value of nature as a means of restoring my mind & body. I openly share with people that I love Vermont and I love exercise but I do not love camping and other "woodsy" related outdoor activities. My idea of camping […]

Lisa's Update....Successes & Challenges.......

After two months of working more consistently on myself I am at a point where I feel more motivated because I am feeling stronger, seeing results and hearing from others that they see the results. I have had some victories on the scale and some non-scale victories including my clothes fitting better and having more […]

Playing it Safe in the Summer Heat!

In typical Vermont fashion, we went from winter to warm pretty quickly as the official start of summer started and thankfully the nice weather and warmer temps are sticking around this week so here are a few annual reminders about playing it safe when exercising in the summer heat, inside and out: Do not just […]

I Want vs I WILL: Coach Meg's Story.....

My health and fitness journey exploded my freshman year of college. I retained the information and education in high school, but dove much deeper and developed a passion for my overall wellness in college. "A new year, a new me" kind of vibe- a fresh start as a “nobody” in college. A clean plate with […]

Lisa's Journey...Update...In her own words....

So today I did a 5k race in the women’s half marathon in Niagara Falls. I have come to this race 3 times in 4 years. The first was my first ever half marathon. I was at my lowest weight and had been training prior to the the race. I walked a majority of the […]

Meet Lisa...in her own words. Follow her transformation with us all summer long!

  I started gaining about 10 pounds a year until I hit a weight of 285 pounds in 2013. I love to travel and often had to worry if I could fit in a plane seat and had my own seat belt extender because it was embarrassing to ask for one. Daily struggles included trouble […]

Rain, Rain Go Away!

I know I am not alone in saying that I am sick and tired of the wet, cloudy weather that has followed up the gray and snowy weather.  I do love the multiple seasons that make Vermont special but for the first time ever, I would take a sunnier and warmer location for living and […]

How you start your day may say a lot about your entire day!

This post was written by a former team member in 2018 but my morning routine of over 2.5 years is still the forefront of well-being as a fitness professional and business owner. I cannot speak for everyone in the caregiving/service field but for I feel strongly that making a way of taking care of yourself […]
