Was That A Good Thing?

Was that a good thing? The Coronavirus? The Pandemic? The current circumstance? The next thing? They say, the only thing constant is change. With change comes fear or excitement. Both excitement and fear involve the same chemical process in the brain.  The first thing...

How To Plan Your Day (COVID-19 Ed.)

A week ago we were in denial that half the country would be working from home. For the first week many were celebrating their freedom while working from home for the first time. After a week, maybe two; this “work from home” thing for most of people that are used to...

Sugar and Chronic Disease

Why You Can’t Get Motivated To Exercise?

We live in a “quick fix” “I want it NOW” society. We can get news 24/7 and On Demand TV. Gone are the days of needing to wait for the newspaper to get our news, or wait until we get home to make a phone call. Don’t even get me started on same-day Amazon orders!...

Your Next Step In Fitness

Your Next Step In Fitness

We first opened our doors in 2010. The fitness options were slim. Mostly it was large gyms like Bally’s, YMCA and Gold’s where people would go for exercise. The only constant is change. Many things in the fitness space have come and gone, for today it’s; Peloton Burn...
