  • Confessions of a Fitness Instructor

    Confessions of a Fitness Instructor

    After offering free online classes for 9 months at the start of the pandemic, I found it difficult to ask people to pay for the classes I offered. It almost felt like a bad word or a plea for help.  I was conflicted – how can I say I “care” and then ask people for…

    How are you stepping into the next decade?

    I will admit freely that this time of year is a bit frustrating for me.  Albeit I love the good cheer, the happier sales clerks, the genuine feeling of goodness that is in the air – yet I am left to wonder why.  Why is it now that this sense is heightened? Why, oh why…

    NEWS: The Highlight Reel Isn’t All That Real

    Social Media shares the story where food is glorious, holidays are extraordinary and people are happy: to this, I’ve borrowed the phrase “the highlight reel”  The fact of the matter is this: the social media frenzy often draws us into the wonderful life that we believed to be what we conjured up in our minds…

  • The Making of a Dream

    The Making of a Dream

    It happens slowly for sure. One day a little seed is planted in your head – maybe something someone’s told you. Maybe a magazine ad or a TV scenario or a book reference embeds itself in your mind in a way that becomes personal. All of a sudden the images of actually taking the steps…

    Remember your first time?

    December 29, 2017 The power you have in January is like no other time of the year. That time when you awkwardly stepped forward… dressed in what you thought was appropriate. Ill-equipped to know any better. Just knowing that something needed to change. Do you still laugh or get butterflies thinking about your first step in a…
