I just sent notes to my members of Congress around the Personal Health Investment Today Act and hope that you will consider doing the same.
I was recently contacted by someone who is moved by certain comments I make on the online IDEA Answers forum about multiple chemical sensitivity. This person does not remember what they were looking for or how they ended up seeing my post; but, I am ever so grateful for the help and resources that makes this possible.

Thank you IDEA, fellow trainers, and my new friend, who out of the goodness of their heart, gave me their time and advice of what works for them. I am now using those tips to reinforce for my clients what may and may not bring relief. Now it is up to the clients to decide which options to try first, if not all, simultaneously.
The most important piece of advice this person gives is: there is hope and you can heal.
Wishing you all continued success on your health and fitness journey.
A huge thank you to the stranger, now friend, who goes out of their way to help me help you.
Please be sure to use extreme caution if you decide to use a high elevation training mask. You will want to get the device approved by both your doctor and athletic trainer before use.
I heard about someone having life threatening problems from using a high elevation training mask. This male had an unknown lung condition which predisposed him to severe pain that was not being properly diagnosed; because, if the doctor does not know this device is being used they do not know to look extra carefully at the tests and images. Please be sure to tell the medical staff every little detail of training and lifestyle to get the best care possible that just may save your life and get you pain free quicker.
Have fun with your training devices; but, please do so carefully, do your research and get professional approval.
Happy blessed birthday anniversary to United States of America.
What better way to celebrate than use our independence daily to help keep America going strong.
To remain independent we must remember to follow a healthy balanced eating plan for the most nutrient dense nourishment possible.
Then continue our balanced exercise program which incorporates cross training for injury prevention and longevity.
Add to that our well designed rest and relaxation techniques for optimal regeneration and repair.
Enjoy your independence on our nation's birthday and beyond. My wish for all of you is a happy, healthy and safe, pain free life.
Beware of using your activity tracking device, be it expensive or not.
This can save your life or harm you. How?
The information being stored has been used at the doctor's office to help diagnose the presence of illness. The doctor will compare your information with their office numbers. We are more relaxed and active when away from the doctor; so, you can see how this will give the doctor a more complete picture of your well being. If you are lost, the gps will help locate you.
On the flip side, the fitness tracker device will give away your location. Are you trying to avoid someone? Also, the tracking device is not completely accurate, the numbers may be, and most probably are, quite off; so, use the device as a comparison to the previous day for logging improvement.
Therefore, please, use the fitness tracker wisely and take the information it gives you with the grain of salt. They are helpful and fun to use when you understand the goal of these items.
I had the pleasure of being invited onto a talk show for an interview.
If you would like to know some more about me, you may enjoy listening to Tarryn's introductory interview about me and NAPS 2 B Fit...Customized Health + Fitness Programs. This is about a 25 minute show with Tarryn wearing headphones and me on the phone, off screen.

Have a great day.
Hello and welcome to your vacation location. I am more than happy to help you remain current with your exercise program while you are away from home, be it business or pleasure, when you are in my area.
With that in mind; please be aware that you are able to find a trainer on IDEA, at this site, just by putting in your location:
Sorry, no more excuses; and, you are welcome for keeping you on track toward your goals.
Take care and safe travels to you.
Form your group of five to ten friends and family, then contact trainer for an educational one hour session of varied classes and a balanced program. Times and locations are decided by participants and trainer. We meet once a week all year long; you pay for four one hour sessions in advance; there are no refunds or returns; $10/hour/person.
Get your steps in and your questions anwered at the same time.
Confusion and contradictory information in the media concerning health and fitness can drive anyone crazy enough to jump off the wagon before even contemplating about starting a healthy lifestyle program.
I totally understand and feel for you. I have been in your shoes, trying all kinds of things I heard here and there, before my health training and education set me straight. What works for someone else is not guaranteed to work for you. This is exactly the reason I choose to work in the health industry: I figure out and decipher what will work for you to reach your goals.
For me, I like to maintain my health for the ability to optimize my quality of life. Normal is not good enough; reaching for the above normal range when it comes to health and fitness will keep you going strong longer with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
I hope and pray that you are happy, healthy and safe, smiling and singing along the way.
Happy Easter, Christ is Risen.
