  • Set yourself up for success

    Set yourself up for success

    by Michelle Sadowitz Life is crazy busy - kids to take care of, long hours at work. Trying to fit everything in on a single day feels like an impossible task sometimes! A lot of time our health and well-being is last on the list of things to take care of. Personally for me, trying to fit in healthy meals throughout the week can be tough, and maybe you can relate. Maybe you have early mornings and don’t have time to make yourself a nice breakfast to fuel your day, maybe you get home late from work and don’t feel like cooking, or maybe you are rushing around all day and tend to end up at a drive thru. Schedules can be crazy, I get it; but sometimes it’s ....

  • Health for Yourself and Your Environment

    Health for Yourself and Your Environment

    by Cory Phillips So I know we usually talk about topics that have to do with taking care of our own physical and mental wellness, but what about taking care of the Earth we live on? I know this has been a big topic in recent years and most people do care about taking care of the environment. But how much are you actually helping to preserve it? Below are a few things you can do to help take care of our planet. 1. Recycle - big no brainier here, but beyond just recycling bottles and cans, try recycling all plastic packaging like ziplock bags, grocery bags, or any soft plastic container that food comes in (like shredded cheese or chip bags). 2. Use reusable products - ....

  • How to Find Time for Fitness

    How to Find Time for Fitness

    By Faith Judson Do you ever wish you had more time to burn some extra calories, gain some strength, or improve balance and flexibility, but find it hard to have time for all that in one day? Many people miss small opportunities to stay active throughout the day. If you can identify small areas in your day that you can multitask and use as a way to increase activity, you can greatly benefit from those adjustments. To get extra steps in during the day, there are some easy changes you can make. For example, when going to the store, don’t look for the closest parking spot to the store. Instead, park towards the end of the parking lot, and use that opportunity to get ....

  • How to Get Motivated

    How to Get Motivated

    by Bob Romanaskas You can train yourself for success just as well as you can train for failure. Today you may be saying, “I need to be motivated to get anything done,” but I guarantee that it doesn't have to be that way. If you’ve taught yourself to believe certain limitations, then you can also teach yourself to break through them. You’ve probably noticed that it’s hard to be motivated all the time. No matter what you are working on, there are bound to be days when you don’t feel like showing up. There will be workouts that you don’t feel like starting. There will be responsibilities that you don’t feel like handling. ....

  • Unexpected Goals

    Unexpected Goals

    by Sarah Long After being an athlete in high school and college, I've been finding myself lacking the goals I once had. Gone are the days of practice, competing against and with teammates, games, and the hope of playoffs and championships. A few weeks ago, I went for a run and was proud of myself for going a few miles. I've never been much of a runner, especially long distances, so when a friend suggested I should train for a half marathon I couldn't help but laugh! But then I started thinking about it more - maybe I could do this! Maybe this goal that seemed so out of reach could be the best thing I could ever work towards. Now that I have this half marathon goal in mind, ....

  • The One Thing You Can Do To Live a Healthier Life

    The One Thing You Can Do To Live a Healthier Life

    by Libby Aneskewich There are so many different factors that contribute to a healthy life. Eating well and working out go hand in hand, but what about sleep, productivity, financial health, and social wellbeing? Everything needs to come together to help sculpt a well-rounded, fulfilling, healthy life. I have found one thing that gives me all of those benefits at once - running. Running helps my diet.
    When I wake up in the morning and know that I am going to go for a run, I consciously fuel my body with whole foods to support the activity that I’m about to do. After a long run, I am sweaty and tired and usually reach for a piece of fruit which I know will hydrate me ....

  • Good Things Take Time

    Good Things Take Time

    by Michelle Sadowitz Do you ever feel like giving up? Do you ever feel like no matter what you do you can’t drop the pounds, can’t get stronger, can’t …whatever, you name it. When we don’t see results we expect or want, it is so easy to get frustrated and give up. We tell ourselves, “Why bother with this if nothing seems to be happening?” We tell ourselves “I don’t care about trying anymore”…(although you probably still do). There has probably been a time when we all thought about giving up, but I’m here pleading with you to NOT GIVE UP! Do you know why? Because YOU are worthwhile ....

  • Never Stop Reading

    Never Stop Reading

    by Cory Phillips 24% of Americans haven't read a book or listened to an audio book in the past year. Let that sink in for a minute, and imagine the percentage who hasn't read a book in 5-10 years, it's probably higher than you think. Most people who know me, know I like to read a lot! And it didn't used to be that way. I HATED to do the summer readings in high school and would just cliff note it the week before school started. I finally caught the reading bug during late high school, took a hiatus in college and picked up again once I graduated. People's biggest reasons I hear for not reading is "I just can't stay focused or I'm not interested in the books I try ....

  • Your Outdoor Gym

    Your Outdoor Gym

    by Faith Judson Summer is here, and many people like to soak up as much of the sun as they can get. Sometimes it can be hard to go to the gym or workout in the house when the weather is calling to you. If you want to be able to enjoy being outside and be able to get a workout in at the same time, head to your nearest park. This is the perfect place to have a fun, yet still effective workout, while enjoying the weather. Not sure how to workout at the park? Warm up by going for a run around the park. This can be a 10 minute jog, or a couple mile run. After the run, find a park bench and take advantage of it by doing a full body workout. To work ....
