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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dogs & Strengthening Our Pillars of Health….and Cats?!

My husband and I have been together for almost 9 years. Before we met I had never had a dog as a pet. As our 9 years have progressed so has my relationship with our now 14-year-old Australian Shepard Austin. I do not know much about the development of dogs but Austin was 5 when […]

Calling all Gardening Enthusiasts

This years weather is putting a delay on the gardening season this spring which means there is still time to get (re)started on an exercise routine to prevent those seasonal gardening and landscaping aches and pains. It can be physically exhausting to do yard work, especially if you are otherwise sedentary in the winter months. […]

Getting to the heart of the matter

In the spirit of it being the week of Valentines Day (enter eye roll) but also Heart Health Month lets traverse all things love, resilience, and working out! On Love: I LOVE it when obvious things that I know and have lived come, go, and then re-enter my life like a it is an entirely […]

Leave the phone behind: Gym Etiquette

I was taking a spinning class at an area gym this past weekend. All of a sudden I saw a flash of light go off in mid-pedal and wondered what it was thinking strangely that someone was taking a photo. It turned out to be inches away from me. The rider next to me had […]

80% of New Year’s Resolutions Fail – How to ensure yours doesn’t

There is nothing more symbolic of fresh starts than January 1st, which could be why Inc. Magazine reports 60% of Americans make a New Year’s resolution. What are we resolving to do (for real this time)? Not surprisingly, the majority want to diet or eat healthier (71%), exercise more (65%), and lose weight (54%). But, […]

Do as I say, not as I do

Sometimes it takes wise counsel to point out that you need to practice something that is usually so obvious to you, something you constantly preach to others, and believe that you do fairly well until you are told otherwise. This is precisely what occurred to me right at the start of this month and year. […]
