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.
How did you do with your healthy lifestyle throughout January? Can you believe that we are half way through February, already? Time truly does fly, whether we are having fun or not.
How can we improve the planet while improving our health? Simple, by eating fresh food, which does not need packaging, that way there is less refuse, if any at all, when we compost the leftover produce. Have you ever thought of it that way before? I only have compost if my dogs don't get to it before I reach the compost pile. Actually, the produce is just as good for the animals as it is for us, anyway. Just check with your veterinarian what is safe for your beloved pets.
So, when an unsupportive someone tells you that it is a waste of time, money, or some other excuse, to eat naturally, please remind them that it is good for the planet we share. If they use the recycling excuse, you can bring up that compost is also recycling done without power sources. As for price, the fresh produce goes farther than we think; look at the serving sizes of produce.
If you have anything you would like to hear about, please drop me a line.
Best of health to you.
Happy new year. I hope everyone is happy and doing well.
Now is the most popular time of year to get the body in motion by joining a gym or starting an exercise regimen.
If you are new to exercise, please be sure to get approval from your family physician before doing something new and/or different.
If you are experienced, break time is over; go ahead and try to kick things up a notch to continue progressing...safely with the aid of your trainer/support system.
Remember this, if you don't like to start over, then don't quit in the first place.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy year.
For those of you who can eat whatever you want and never gain a pound, lucky you...or are you?
Please be sure to have the same tests done at your doctor visit that the rest of the population has done. Just because you are thin does not mean there are not issues going on around your organs that need to be addressed, for your own well being.
Please do not assume that all is well; take care of yourself like the rest of us need to do and you will feel so much better. Having more quality time with loved ones and favored activities is worth it, right?
Now go eat and drink healthy, exercise properly and rest well...with your loved ones.
It is not over, yet. We still have many places to go and decisions to make with our health and fitness through the maze of parties where tempting delectables are the main ingredient. My last blog to you on Top Ten Ways To Enjoy Thanksgiving should help you get through the next month or two, also. What helped you in November? Use that and try to add one more tip to help you get through December.
Thanksgiving is around the corner, and everyone's looking forward to getting together with family and indulging (why not?).
Fortunately, we have put together 10 ways for you to 'have your turkey and eat it too.'
Here they are:
1. Drink plenty of water throughout the week - especially before heavy meals.
2. Walk off that big dinner (you can even make it a family outing and exercise while enjoying one another's company.
3. Create a caloric deficit by upping your exercise routine the week of the big meal.
4. Make simple substitutions, such as lighter milk and cream, to enjoy your favorite treats without the heavy health impact.
5. Make small cutbacks on sugars and salts involved in the cooking process as most recipes call for more than is needed.
6. Continue to have evenly-paced meals throughout the day. Having a normal breakfast and lunch will help you to refrain from overdoing it at dinner and dessert.
7. Use smaller plates. Many times people will overeat purely because they pile larger portions onto wide plates. Give yourself a mental edge by using a smaller plate and having smaller portions.
8. Eat slowly to allow your body time to begin digestion. You may find yourself feeling full far earlier than you would have thought.
9. Beware of alcohol intake. It's easy to drink more than your normal amount during holidays, but too much alcohol can cause a variety of problems, including dehydration.
10. Relax. Stress is a huge health risk and contributes to a vast variety of ailments. Allow yourself to enjoy the holiday.
