Terilynn Gives up Lounging for Lunging and Loses Inches!

February 20, 2012

  I met Terilynn when I joined a bocce team in April 2010 soon after I moved to Napa. She was (and still is) fun and happy and loved to talk… to everyone! We had a great time playing bocce, eating amazing foods, drinking wonderful wines and we always chatted about many of our daily happenings except her weight-loss and […]

Length Adjustment Rules for the TRX Suspension Trainer

February 8, 2012

For some reason, I have a pet peeve when I see people using the TRX Suspension Trainer at the incorrect lengths for certain exercises. So, here is the breakdown: There are 4 length conventions of the Suspension Trainer: 1. “Length Short” 2. “Mid Length” 3. “Length Mid Calf” 4. “Length Long.”     Length Short: The […]

TRX Suspension Trainer – Don’t Be a Sinner

December 8, 2011

  Most everyone has at least heard of TRX by now. Those black and yellow straps that hang from the ceiling at the gym and people twist around in them and stuff, right? Well, kind of… TRX is the brand of a couple different products; the Suspension Trainer which is the most common and has been around for about 6 […]

Hiking and Trekking and Climbing…

August 17, 2011

I am from the East Coast. Raised in a town of 400 people. 1.5 hours to the nearest mall, 2 hours to the nearest (major) city, 1.5 hours to any (decent) ski mountain and 1.5 hours to the closest airport (Manchester wasn’t really happening back then). So, with that, the natural surroundings became my friend. […]

Hot Summer (and Hungry) Night? Ceviche to the Rescue!

August 15, 2011

The very first time I ate ceviche was while in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico watching Green Bay rock the Steelers’ world during the Super Bowl this past February. Of course ceviche is a super bowl snack! I was in Mexico! I really enjoyed it that night and as soon as summer hit in Napa Valley, I […]

First and “Core”most

August 9, 2011

So, after several blog posts over the past few weeks, I am finally going to write a little something about the stuff I know best – the human body and how to get it healthy and in shape. (I can go on and on about this stuff, so I will try really hard to keep […]

Vegetarian Paella

August 8, 2011

I have found that many clients aren’t really sure what “healthy eating” is. Frozen fish sticks for dinner do not take the place of salmon from your local fish market. A Taco Bell burrito is not healthier for you than your own cooked beans rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla with some veggies and […]

Quinoa on the Rise!

August 3, 2011

The first time I heard of quinoa was in 2008. I was going on a 7-day cleanse (not any of the starve-yourself kind) and quinoa was listed as one of the clean, preservative-free foods on the menu. Hmm! I wonder where I can get me some of that quinoa? It took me forever to finally […]
