    March 27, 2019

    Ever been in Love? The “Wake-Up and be excited about it” Type of Love? The 24/7 Love? When every moment you are happy because of that someone, regardless of whatever else is going on?

  • Struggle

    March 11, 2019

    “The Struggle is Real” is one of my least favorite “Sayings” that is commonly used these days… It is typically associated with a simple act that has become difficult, and the desired outcome is Humor… For some, being funny when things become tough is an appropriate outlet and lets them take a breath… For many, […]

  • Rehab Part II

    November 11, 2018

    Rehab is a dirty word. It carries with it a Negative Connotation for most of the Population. Hear that someone is “In” or “Doing” Rehab, and you immediately ask “What Happened? Are they OK?” … I am not sure if that Stigma is justifiable, particularly as it reinforces Negative stereotypes and has repercussions on many […]

There are so many Positives for the Clients they Workout with, the Staff that Coaches’ them and the Environment that it Creates, that it would be difficult to list them all…   Which got me Wondering, What Do […]
