54 marathons in 52 weeks

Tony Gaspar of Paso Robles is an inspiration

As someone who has completed a few marathons, I know firsthand how difficult the 26.2 mile distance can be to complete. The mileage takes a toll on your body and becomes a battle of mental toughness as you push yourself to finish the last few miles and receive your finisher’s medal. Motivated by the cheers of the crowd and the congratulatory praises of your friends and family, you feel a sense of pride and accomplishment as you look forward to a couple of weeks of well deserved rest and relaxation.

The CrossFit Games

The search for the Fittest on the Planet

The purpose of any workout is to “increase your fitness”, yet only one workout program has actually defined “fitness”.  In CrossFit, fitness is “increased work capacity over broad times and modal domains”.  This sounds complicated but its actually very simple.  It basically means that you have the ability to do any task, for a variety of different times and at different weights.  Not that you are the best at the tasks, but that you are physically prepared to do anything, whether its life, career, or sport related.

Ex couch potato turns UltraWoman

True, cardiovascular endurance and overall running economy are very important to my UltraWoman goal. However, building foundational strength now- results in raw power and reduced injury risk so that I will be able to log those big miles later on. Longer, leaner and faster. Long distance and Ultra racing require a strong, whole body in order to sustain the endless hours of repetitive pounding, climbing, descending all without breaking down and losing form. Identifying then addressing weak areas before you go big makes perfect sense.

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.

Seniors strive for fitness

Age is mind over matter...if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. – Mark Twain

The famous quote above by Mark Twain truly represents the philosophy of the home owners at Traditions at River Oaks, a community of over-55 active seniors.

Since August 2013, a group of more than 30 seniors have met twice a week to lift weights, work on balance, flexibility and just have a good time while getting stronger and fit in the process.

Their ages range from 55 to the spry 90-year-old Bonnie Meyer.
