Stress Distress

In about 8 years of working with clients in the capacity of personal trainer I have learned one thing for certain: most exercisers who face challenges with achieving sustainable results and with optimizing well-being are really under the thumb of one root cause – stress. To this day stress remains to be the main stumbling block to genuine health and [...]

Tennis Etiquette

While watching tennis recently, I began to think about the etiquette of tennis. Both the players and the spectators willfully abide by certain unwritten rules which are governed by the laws of etiquette. It really is a spectacular display of tradition in action, and tennis etiquette is truly something that sets the sport apart. Etiquette adds to the romance of [...]

Holly Jolly November

There I was…on November 13, innocently reaching for a jar of Ovaltine on the supermarket shelf when it hit me. I was singing “Holly Jolly Christmas.” Why?

Yoga Go Girl

I remember feeling somewhat awe-struck when a friend of mine posted this picture on my Facebook wall a little over a year ago. Granted, when she posted it, it was accompanied by a sassy comment about the pants having silicone grip to prevent me from falling on my face.

Caffeine Boost

As I sit here, contemplating a morning jog and sipping on my second coffee, I can`t help but think about the caffeine debate. Is caffeine beneficial to your morning workout, or is it not? We all know the wonderful benefits of caffeine (the most important being that it decreases fatigue and increases mental alertness).Did you also know that a cup [...]

Sound familiar?  Do you frequently throw up your hands in horror when you hear “Let’s have pizza for dinner?” It’s hard enough to keep your will power strong, but now you have to battle the [...]

Path to Peace:Live in the Present

What does it mean to be present? Being present is simply being, or existing, in this very moment. Living in the moment will create a life that is filled with calmness and peace; we all want a life filled with peace, but in today’s day and age, life can become swamped. Trying to balance work life and being a parent, [...]
