Have a healthy holiday

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are a time for celebration with family and friends. They’re also the time of year when many people find themselves “falling off the wagon” when it comes to healthy habits. This can lead to a lot of guilt and stress during a time that should be enjoyed and cherished.

There is a season for everything in life

A Life Without Limitations

This past week my family and I took a 3-day trip hiking into Zealand Falls Hut in the White Mountains.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough – at 82 years old, Dale is working on setting the world record to be the oldest person to complete the mission.

Benefits of working out while pregnant

We often receive questions regarding working out while pregnant. This is something that I feel passionately about as a mother who enjoyed the benefits of being active during my pregnancies and as an owner of a health and wellness facility. Making the decision to continue working out (particularly in a controlled, safe training environment) is a very personal one. As with anything, we recommend doing your own research and determine if the benefits of an active lifestyle will outweigh any potential risks. Here are a few of the health benefits to the mother and baby that were factors in my decision to continue working out throughout my pregnancies.

How to talk your way through your workout

Everybody has those days when they “just aren’t feelin’ it.” It could be the weather that has you down or you haven’t gotten enough sleep but for whatever reason, you just can’t get yourself jacked up enough for your training session. It happens to everyone. Hopefully, some of my mental chatter will help you crush your next workout.
