Functional Fitness- For Stronger Living
My daughter Zoe threw this at me not too long ago. Wowsers! This is what I preach to my clients every day!! I think she learned it at school.

While I somewhat agree with the science of it all, I vehetmently disagree on the holistic side of it.

A few ramblings all newsletter style.Read up on what I think is a forgotten calf stretch (at least I don't see anyone doing it) a new toy I bought myself and a GREAT recipe for the vegetables lovers. I made this dish the other night with some roasted chicken and Mmmm mmm! My wife loved it, I loved it and my two Pugs may have gotten a piece of carrot or two.
