What’s Up for 2015?


Tomorrow begins for me an annual pilgrimage, a two week period of time that I look forward to each year with great enthusiasm and energy. I have selfishly embraced this time for more than 20 years, finding time to be mindful in evaluating my life, my contributions, my progress toward goals, am I on track […]

Estranged Relationships


There is a little talked about, silent epidemic that is growing among families-parental estrangement from adult children. No matter the reasons or how it initially happened one thing is clear, it is the child’s reality and nothing you can do or say will convince them otherwise.

Legs! Fast and Furious!


Thought I would share my fast and furious leg workout with you. I promised I would! When I say fast and furious I am not talkin’ about the moves. The moves are done at a moderate speed, maintain good form, and move with intention. The idea for this workout is to move fast enough from […]

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 […]

It’s All About the Math


Perseverance for me is by far the most important factor in determining the amount of joy and success you will achieve from your workout plan.  I am talking about results not only at the gym, but results in your life. Success in life and in the gym is not about how talented you are, about […]

We all yearn to be well, to be in control of our lives and our health. We seek energy and to feel fit. As we move through life, as we grow, as we age, the gap between well and wanting to be well increases until pulling it all together is like trying to button the […]
