With all the hype & earlier start of the holiday season, we can get tangled up in the superficial social aspects of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah. We all need to take a step back to define what is important about these celebrations. In between the food, drink, excessive gift giving, we lose the feeling of family, togetherness, our continued healthy living-looking after what is truly important. Is 1 more batch of cookies, 1 more drink, extending our budget more important than staying connected w/ our loved ones & continuing to care for our mind, body & soul?

You Need a Personal TrainerI know what you're thinking, "What? I don't need a trainer!"I'm not just saying you need a trainer because I want more clients or for some crazy numbers goal.

When someone asks you what some of your interests or hobbies are and you reply working out and going to the gym, it gives off the impression that you're shallow, and only care about looks, especially if you're surrounded by people who don't follow the same philosophy. For me though, working out is much more than just trying to get a shredded six-pack and look good for the beach. I'm going to be honest that yes those thoughts do cross my mind and some of my fitness goals are based on my physical appearance, but that is mostly to focus on a tangible result.

Strengthening from the ground up is crucially important when considering clients that may have lower extremity injuries. Looking at the whole picture from foot to core helps us to gain a better understanding as to why there may be an imbalance occuring.
