Everything I Know About Leadership I Learned at the Gym


This is a blog from more than a year ago but the principles hold true for me today! Everything I know about leadership, I learned at the gym. Okay, maybe not everything, but I’ve learned an awful lot. I’ve learned that there are quite a few fitness habits that if used as a catalyst in […]

Obesity in the Workplace


Obesity is always a touchy subject, and with the new cautions on obesity and discrimination in the workplace, most won’t touch the subject with a ten foot pole. The evidence shows we’ve got to, and I’m happy to! Obesity does not define who someone is, it is a condition. An unhealthy condition than can be […]

Calculated Moves


Leading well is an artful craft that requires calculated moves. Living well is much the same, an artful craft that requires calculated moves. It is rare I do anything that is not calculated.

Of Fitness and Food- Maximize for Success


Sundays at my house always resemble me as a well organized (relitively speaking) vacation planner packing for a week long journey. Sundays in my house for the most part are both a loving disciplined ritual and a routine. Food prepping, laundry, exercise plans……When you come down to it, each week is in and of itself […]

The Power of Clean


Here we are! 2013! I love the start of any new year, always filled goals and energy and promise. If at any one time we as people felt empowered to “do it all”, this is the time. For the last two years I have been blessed to be trained by Jen Hendershott. I never had […]
