Fitness And Health As A Lifestyle


Fitness is a lifestyle, it is my lifestyle. This was not always the case. As a teenager I watched my dad recover from quadruple bypass surgery. Have you ever watched someone wake up from the effects of anesthesia? It isn’t pretty; as the patient’s body temperature rises, the body shakes, sometimes violently, uncontrollably.  At 17 years of age this marked me. I told myself: “I never want to be in this predicament”.

 I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle for the past 9 years. I say trying because in our society living healthy is not the norm. Throw in time constraints and family commitments and you have a few cards stacked against you. It is important to find resources and people that have the same passion and energy to live healthy and fit. Welcome to our blog, a place where we can share ideas and our experiences, our defeats and triumphs.

This blog is intended for those that want to find balance in their lives. Fitness is a journey. A journey in which you are going to make mistakes and at times take two steps back for every step you take forward; that’s ok, as long as you keep moving. Please join us in sharing your ideas and struggles as we will do the same. We will be picking fitness related topics and blogging about them. Please check out our podcast in conjunction with this blog. We look forward to hearing from you!
