Hi and welcome! I am a wife, mother of 3 boys, blogger, attorney, group fitness instructor, and health and fitness nerd. I began this site as a fun way to communicate with folks about anything related to health, fitness, workouts, nutrition, and recipes and it has grown from there.
I am a self-professed “fitness nerd” and will talk about it to anyone who will listen. I am from South Georgia and live in Atlanta. To go along with three boys, we also have three dogs that I spoil rotten and a very busy, crazy, sport-filled and active life. I do my best to keep it all as balanced and healthy as possible!
I began teaching fitness classes while in law school and fell in love. I love the energy of a group class, creating new workouts and helping clients move their bodies. I practiced law for some time and gravitated to my fitness business when my boys were small and I needed a more flexible schedule. I have loved working with small and large groups and one on one clients. I find myself inspired by my clients as they grow in their fitness and healthy journeys.
Here, you will find posts with information ranging from workouts to try, recent studies, motivation, inspiration, health, nutrition, recipes and tons of other topics that surface. Since beginning writing this site I’ve seen fitness trends ignite, others wane and studies come, go and change completely. I also see differences in the health and fitness needs change for women, and also for men, as we move from the all-out twenty-something craziness into our forty-something years and on. Weeding through all of the tips, trends, and information can seem daunting . . . but I think it all comes down to balance.
It’s not all about workouts and exercise. Check out my healthy recipes because we all know we can’t out train a poor diet! We can, however, outrun the effects of aging. As my gene pool isn’t stellar I am convinced that my lifestyle can beat any “born with” odds. I believe that lifestyle choices we make right now determine not only how quickly we age but how long we will live, and most importantly, the quality of our lives. Health needs to be a choice and a priority. I have a sticky note on my computer that says, “Don’t just prioritize your schedule – schedule your priorities”! I believe we should all take the time and make it our intention to prioritize our health and well-being.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you stay a while!
