Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
Functional Fitness - For Stronger Living is passionate about the major health influencing variables. However, instead of incessantly preaching on these variables why not focus on one that does it all.What is shown to improve sleep, stimulate thirst, drive healthier food choices and reduce stress?

Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
So a long time ago I heard that you need 11 hugs a day to be healthy. I thought this to be interesting and to make sense but didn't know why. Today in my news feed I was hit with the why. A hug (and I mean a real heart felt hug) releases oxytocin (yes like the drug they give women in labor to move things along). Oxytocin has an anti-anxiety affect. It may also increase empathy (connecting with others) and emotional intelligence which may make us happier. Go get your hugs! Tanner ShultzFunctional Fitness- For Stronger Living

The value of a dollar was instilled in me at a young age by my Parents. "Money doesn't grow on trees" is a phrase I often heard when I wanted something.  I've yet to find a money tree; however, what I've realized in adulthood is...people spend time and money on what's important to them.  Whether it's travel, dining, entertainment, fashion, automotive, or a plethora of other options, we tend to make things we enjoy a priority and use our two most valuable resources (time & money) engaging in these activities. Everything else usually gets an excuse.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to be compassionate when you help others on their path to wellness, health and fitness. People come to you, oftentimes as a “last resort”, after years of struggling with either some medical problems or weight issues or nutritional habits. It is extremely hard for them to book that first date with the fitness professional, come to the meeting, sit down, open up right away and pour out all the worries, problems and stress, as they see the person for the first time in their life.

Spring time marks the time where energy comes back up to the surface and new growth surges. This is no more true than in Wisconsin where we will be come out of hibernation to soak up the first sunny day and everyone there after. It amazes me how good the first 40° day feels in Spring when it nearly shuts me down in the Fall.

What seems like a lifetime ago already, I served as a Montessori teacher for adolescents. In my Montessori orientation I heard the phrase repeatedly "Grace and courtesy". While this was not specifically a Montessori teaching, it was a philosophy adopted by Montessori educators because of the way it honored ones place in the larger community. Grace referred to a peace and respect towards yourself. Courtesy referred to that same peace and respect towards others. Since those days long past as a Montessori educator, I have returned to my original classroom...the gym.
