What Thrills Me...

I have never really considered myself a competitive person. Actually, I was a painfully shy kid from a big family of big personalities – which made it easy to ‘belong’ without having to do much more than be present. At a young age I became very sick. I had a brain tumor and suffered many […]

Just Breathe

Let’s get nosey I swear if we could all learn to breathe more through the nose we would live in a healthier, happier, and more peaceful world. Nasal breathing is so much more than just a requirement for meditating.  Although that little fact alone says something about how powerful it can. The truth is that our […]

Running

My relationship with running has alway been a bit complicated.  I ran winter track in high school. I was a mediocre middle distance runner who stuck it out because I loved the camaraderie and the structure.  I also learned quite young that running was magical for combatting the melancholy that came with cold short days.

Coffee & Napping

How coffee and napping go hand in hand Other than the fact that I truly love both coffee and napping, there is a wonderful scientific advantage to this duo. There is so much contradicting information about the health benefits and dangers of drinking coffee. My stance is firm in that coffee is a wonderful thing […]

10 Volcanoes Trail Run

This summer I’ll turn 40 years old 🙂 I’m very proud of my 40 years on this earth – grateful and proud. To celebrate this milestone and everything this lifetime has brought me, I decided to sign up for a trail run… a 25k called the 10 Volcanoes. It’s in Faial, Açores, the island my father […]

The Method Behind the Madness

In deed, there is a method behind the madness. Clients will often tell me that walking into a big gym is overwhelming.  Even if they know how to use the equipment, they still feel a little lost and end up wandering around, fusing together a hodge-podge of exercises until they are totally bored and decide […]

Your Fitness Is Our Business

Some people get really upset about their ‘inability’ to maintain healthy eating habits and a regular workout schedule without having to hire someone to help motivate them and keep them on track. There are also the people that truly feel like they are doing everything right but don’t see the difference on the scale or […]

We Are Here Podcast: Featuring Lara!

Not that long ago a colleague asked me if I would participate in a podcast he’s building. It’s called We Are Here and it’s all about business in the Southcoast. I met Matt Medeiros through EforAll South Coast where we are both mentors. I can’t thank Matt enough for including me in this project. He gave me the opportunity […]
