Get Out, Stand Up

 
Paddle boarding sweeps the Central Coast
At first glance, stand up paddle boarding looks like a sport with an identity disorder. The paddling aspect certainly seems reminiscent of kayaking, but the actual vehicle is a simple, over-sized surfboard. Riders wear calm, serene expressions as if they’re going for a pleasant stroll, except that they’re walking on water. Yes, stand up paddle boarding is a lot like other activities, but there’s nothing quite like it.

Health starts here: The Natural Alternative Nutrition Center will get you feeling great

 
To ‘be healthy’ is more than being a specific weight. It’s more than just staving off disease or illness. Healthy is waking up before the morning alarm clock rings and making it through a full work-day, without an afternoon coffee or energy drink. Being healthy is about feeling healthy all day, everyday; to have the energy to do the activities you enjoy.

If you ain’t dead, you ain’t done

The writing has been on the wall for a long time. Movement is life, life is movement. Many biological functions in your body are dependent on movement, especially your brain’s development and continual “tuning”. Your brain began developing in the womb, first, through your mother’s movement, then later, through your own. Movement physically changes your brain and enables it to function better. Why do you think movement, play, and restlessness are so inherent to children?

Get in on the Pickleball craze

Fun, social and active sport takes SLO County by storm

Pickleball was once called “the fastest growing sport in the country you’ve never heard of.”  Not anymore. This very fun, very social, very ‘active’ game has grown exponentially since it was first introduced in 1965.

Developed by Washington State representative and eventual Lt. Governor, Joel Pritchard, the name of the sport originated, according to urban legend, in honor of Pritchard’s dog, Pickles, who would chase any errant balls and return them...most of the time.

Get out there!
