This month in my blog I am going to get a little personal. As a trainer and nutritionist I always get my workouts in, and 90% of the time I have a great nutritional balance. I know you all think that trainers are a 100% all the time but its not true. Even if they tell you that, its not true. No one can be 100% all the time. Anyway...
WOW…what a great summer indeed. This year, to serve community needs, we changed our summer programming by adding FAMILYfitness and OH-Athlete Summer Camp.We learned from past summers that many of our morning clients did not attend fitness classes because their children were at home from school. This gave us the idea to open summer session morning classes to FAMILYfitness. It was extremely well received. Program Success:
We all have areas of our life that we’d like to improve. Whether it’s our health, career, a relationship, or our spiritual path, when one of more of them is out of synch, it impacts our overall wellness. For example, when someone is working for an extremely unreasonable boss in a stressful job, Friday at 5:00 can’t come soon enough. The
Do you believe that your inner dialogue – your ‘self-talk’- has the power to create your life? With our words and thoughts we are continually creating our life experience – in every moment. Think about that for a moment. If your inner dialogue goes something like, “Who’s going to want to hire me? I’m not as good as all the others. I need to lose weight.

Before I became a health counselor, I thought I had a pretty good handle on my wellness because I exercised regularly and ate pretty well (or so I thought). Two things I did that greatly improved my wellness are 1) overcame my sugar addiction (sweets and other simple carbs) and 2) eating more greens. Overall, my energy increased, I trimmed down around the middle, my skin improved, and I don’t c
The first thing all of us need to remember is the fact that our bodies require fuel to operate. Much like a car if it has no fuel it will not run. Well, also like a car our bodies perform better on cleaner purer fuel. With that said could everybody eat the same food and get the same effect? The answer is no.
