I have been training J.B. since January 2014 to meet strength goals, and coaching him on his knee replacement rehabilitation. This amazing man made it a personal goal to work out diligently three times per week with the program(s) I designed for him. He achieved 100 workouts in the 8 months since our first appointment. Here he is doing a Low Row, wearing the badge that I made for him to acknowledge his good work. He has seen all kinds of improvements since he started working out. You can too!

I wanted to post these words of wisdom from …My Winning Words©. We so many times feel we have to do everything, be in pain when we “workout” and we leave out the balance of enjoyment of movement. Enjoy these words. They them soak into your heart and body.

Keep the joy in your lifeGood grip and good balance are good things, especially if you're over 50 years of age. As you age you naturally lose muscle strength due to sarcopenia. Lose too much muscle strength and you can also lose balance falling into a broken hip that can take the joy out of life.

For senior fitness, walking with a bag of beans may not seem like a fat-burning workout but use your mind and the pounds melt off.The idea that walking with a bag of beans can trim and tone your body as you strengthen your core and stabilize your balance might seem inconceivable.

Think being THIN is healthy, NOT SO FAST... Women, it's time to reassess your views on being that size 6 and being HEALTHY. One thing I see everyday in my personal training clients as well as my LIFT TO THRIVE SENIORS especially the WOMEN, is this on going belief that "SKINNY IS HEALTHY, AND THICK IS FAT AND UNHEALTHY." But this is just not true.

Functional Fitness Classes.... What is that??? Functional fitness is nothing new, really, it's just basic calisthenic style exercises that help to improve strength, range of motion, balance and coordination, stimulate brain memory, create happy hormones for improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety, and aid in fall prevention, reduce injuries, and identify signs of dehydration... and this is just a few of what my LIFT 2 THRIVE Super Seniors learn about in my on going classes.
