The exquisiteness of equine

Take some time to explore SLO County from the saddle

The world is a beautiful place from the back of a horse. When riding, all troubles go out the window and life is suddenly simple. San Luis Obispo County has a rich and diverse equestrian community. Whatever your discipline, there is something here for you. And while we might speak different “horse languages”, it’s important to realize and remember we share the same love of horses.

The Joy of Flying

You are dangling 25 feet in the air. Far below you is nothing but the hard warehouse floor. Holding you up is nothing but a sleek, slippery fabric which increasingly threatens to slide right out of grip with each passing moment.

Revamp your life

The gains in diverse exercise

Fitness places don’t really appeal to me. Perhaps I secretly feel like I have to be fit in order to go to a fitness center. “That’s a common misconception,” says Lindsay Ashton of Revamp Personal Training in Morro Bay. I know she is right. How silly! You start a fitness routine to GET fit.

Catamarans sailing Lake Lopez

Do you remember back in the late 80’s and early 90’s when Catamaran sail boats with brightly colored sails lined the beaches all over California? There are still a few beaches today, mostly in Southern California that you may see these Cats perched on the beaches. Here on the Central Coast of California you can now spot those brilliantly colored sails on a Saturday or Sunday at Avila and Port San Luis beaches or at beautiful Lopez Lake.

Catamaran sailing is back! It is thriving through the leadership of Scott Erwin, Commodore of Hobie Cat Fleet 259. Scott Erwin has a passion for sailing and a love to teach others how to sail. Just one look at Scott’s Atascadero backyard and you’ll see this passion of these small, double hulled sailboats. He has at least ten Catamarans ready to be towed to the beach or lake for a day of fun in the sun. A few of these boats are available for anyone to borrow and use.

Sleeping in Neutral

Proper sleep positions promote better posture

A young man walks in the room, his shoulders are hunched and his head is so far forward that it looks painful. Others notice his posture and wonder what caused it – injury, genetics? Possibly, but later, when an old man walks in with the same posture, others think it’s because of his age.

What do you eat, Jeanne?

Although I eat healthy and am thin, my diet might not be the right one for you.  The way I eat won’t necessarily be the answer to a healthy body composition for you.  There are too many things to consider, before copying my diet.  Besides the fact that my cholesterol is about 120 mg/dl, my blood pressure hovers around 90/60 mm/Hg, and my body fat is about 17.4%, I have celiac disease (CD).  This column will explain what CD is and how it relates to me.  It was written not only to teach you about another aspect of health, but also to share with you my pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.

Why, you may ask? Because I’m both lucky enough and crazy enough to be able to try!

Find adventure at Skydive Pismo Beach

In 21st century America, planes are a fairly normal aspect of the daily grind. Most adults would say they’ve flown, but Chris Lee, general manager of Skydive Pismo Beach, would disagree. To him, that would be like saying you went for a swim without ever leaving the boat. In order to fly, you’ve got to jump.
