So often, sadly, I hear people resign themselves to their illness or ailment, i.e. Diabetes, Heart Disease, Arthritis, Over Fatness…blaming it on genetics.
Well, it’s not just about our Blueprint (our Genetics). How we live…what we eat or don’t eat…Whether we move…The stressors that we expose ourselves to…plus a myriad of other things significantly influence how that blueprint it interpreted and what instructions on that map are carried out.

I have a lot to learn from my 16-year-old.
He said, “Mom, no one ever said we’re promised tomorrow…”

I would love to see you in a V-pose. Share one!

Gil Hedley is brilliant in the way he explains how “cobwebs” grow in our bodies each day locking us down, making us feel stiff, bound and restricted.

NOT ALL FITNESS IS CREATED EQUALLY…
A proper program prepares the body in three dimensions…in diverse angles, positions and motions so that you can do the activities you love with confidence, strength, safety and resiliency.

Fitness is only one aspect of Vitality.
