Cycling Strong!

April 24, 2015

crown pointHave you noticed how many people are out on their bikes enjoying our beautiful spring weather?! It’s such a great workout and a wonderful way to get outdoors and explore the beautiful Northwest. Cycling strong is key!

It’s important to remind all of you that fitting your bike correctly to your body will reduce your risk of injury to your back, neck, knees, shoulders and wrists. Many local bike companies provide this service which is very important, especially for those of you who ride long distances.

The next most important tip for your cycling safety is to always wear a helmet, obey the rules of the road and always ride defensively.

Reverse The Aging Process

April 6, 2015

SONY DSCAnother Birthday passed and I just turned 45.  The good news is besides a few extra wrinkles, a few more aches and pains and having difficulty reading small text, I feel as good as when I was in my 20s.  That can be a true testimony to the benefit of exercise! Use it to reverse the aging process!

Aging is an inevitable part of life. One can expect certain changes, such as graying hair and wrinkled skin, to accompany aging. In fact, the cosmetic industry preys off our attempts to reverse some of these changes. But many of the changes commonly attributed to the process of aging, specifically within the musculo-skeletal system (the bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons and cartilage) are in fact, a result of physical inactivity or disuse.  The old adage “use it or lose it” appears to ring true.  Read more on Reverse The Aging Process…
