How Are You Accountable?

I have 5 clients all named “Linda”.  The Linda I am referring to in this blog wanted to be accountable for her wellness goals in 2016.  So, she showed me how she was being accountable and in detail too!  I invited her to text me every day to let me know that she got a […]

A Long & Strong Future!

Spending an hour on the treadmill isn’t enough.  Neither is walking the dog.  As you age, your body is in a state of deterioration, starting as early as age 30.  By age 50, most of us will have lost over 20% of our muscle mass.  This means age-related weight gain as we gain more body […]


The majority of our clients that we have, work out at home with their own equipment.  We are experts in teaching you how to fitness train at home, because that is where we do our own training for 65 – 70% of our time.  We do also go to a gym primarily to use some […]

Measure “Down” in 2016!

Instead of measuring “up” in 2016, how about measuring “down”? Several of my clients have started their exercise and clean eating regimen before the holidays have taken a hold of us and are already seeing remarkable results.  Consistency pays off! One client has been with me for only 1 month and is doing portion control […]

Float Therapy

What a great way to start the New Year! Jack and I have been doing floatation therapy since the summer of 2015.  We do it for many beneficial reasons but one of the benefits is better sleep and being able to get into a relaxed state of mind.  We also like to do it to […]

It’s Never Too Late to Start!

If you have been pondering about getting more physically fit for this new year, then the time is               Jack and I both work with Baby Boomers and clients slightly younger than us, and somewhat older than us clients (and a good measure of young clients too – to […]

Farmer’s Market Finds

One of the vendors that we purchase from at the Farmer’s Market at City Hall and in summer, on 104 Street recently had heart surgery for a heart defect (not cardiovascular disease).  We know this vendor well and he eats a whole foods/Paleo-based diet.  He also eats a very alkaline diet to reduce inflammation. While […]

What is Health Span?

The term life span is familiar to the majority of people. There’s a new kid on the block now, as defined in the Merriam Webster dictionary, known as health span. “A person’s health span is the length of time that the person is healthy – not just alive”. So, as our mentor liked to quote, […]

Your Brain Loves it When You Move!

Do you know that when you exercise, you can regenerate brain cells? When you exercise, you also release serotonin, which improves your mood! Endorphins get released when you exercise, which dulls the sensation of pain, especially for those who suffer with arthritis. During and after exercise, dopamine is released, which improves motivation, focus and learning […]
