Playing It DUMB Could Be SMART For Some People

By |February 22nd, 2021|Fitness, Health & Wellbeing|0 Comments

The SMART Path It is not a new concept, at this time of year, to decide to make a change and set a few goals for ourselves.  Some may call the resolutions. Others may just consider them to be a to-do or bucket list for the upcoming year (or month or however long one sticks with it). It has been said that a goal without a plan is just a wish. When figuring out how to actually see or goal

Got Strength? You Need It

If you have weights collecting dust in your garage, might I suggest blowing off the dust bunnies and pumping iron.  It's well documented that strength and balance training are an important part of health and wellness. But have you ever thought about exactly WHY today is the best day to get started? Outcomes Across the Lifespan When I was growing up, it was nothing to go outside and play all day with friends.

How is coaching successful and why is it different than just having your best girlfriend be your accountability partner?  Girlfriends are great, but they aren't coaches.  One of the key parts of coaching
