With one google search for online trainers you will get over 2 million results! That’s crazy! When we see all these options it got us thinking....sure it may seem easier, more efficient as these online trainers promise transformations with just 20 min a day, but does that convenience make it the best option for you? The simple answer is no, and here’s why….
You physically meet with your trainer and make a commitment in person. You’re held accountable to an appointment. The need for interpersonal support is primal, we are social animals. We seek the companionship and positive reinforcement of others, especially when we are doing work. The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) did a study on accountability and found that you have a 65% of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed, you will increase your chance of success by up to 95%. That’s the first...Read More

"Yoga came to me in early adulthood when my life was full of wrongs, imbalance, excess and disconnection. Through the grace of countless teachers and dedicated practice I have come to find all aspects of this practice to help me see my innate goodness and to challenge who I am beyond my self-conceived bounds. Each time I come to my mat or the cushion I find an opportunity to remember and reunite with the qualities I need to amplify in order to more skillfully ride the waves of my life. These include but are never limited to; patience, perseverance, surrender, kindness, curiosity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life.
With over a decade of diverse practice and study and a degree in Exercise Physiology I...Read More
Several years ago I read a quote that has stayed with me …."Most people have no idea how good their body can feel,” and the last few months have solidified this belief. I was living back in my home town for five months and while I saw things are slowly shifting for the better, I missed what I had here in Colorado. I quickly came to realize that Vail is home and will always have my heart. It was time to head back and I couldn’t get here fast enough. I love Vail for many reasons, but the number one being the all-encompassing healthy lifestyle.
As a Colorado girl hailing from the mid-west where deteriorating health, poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, is the norm, I was enlightened to a lifestyle so opposite the first time I visited Colorado. Health and fitness are a way of life. I wanted to live the Vail lifestyle. This eventually prompted me to make the move.
In Vail, I have found a great community that constantly strives to be better than they were yesterday. Everyone is out living...Read More

There is an old adage in the fitness industry – You can’t out exercise poor nutrition.
This has become increasingly true as the food industry has created highly addictive, nutritionally void and calorie dense foods. People looking for optimal health and vitality must be highly aware not to fall into the trappings that lead to lethargy, chronic illness and weight gain.
Regarding body composition and weight management, it is estimated that 75% of the equation is really about food intake. It becomes very easy to over-consume especially with the habit-forming foods that flood most grocery store shelves, restaurants and advertisements. These foods are non-satiating and are designed to create over-consumption, and with high frequency! We have all known that feeling: you eat something sweet and sugary, and you keep eating it until the bag is empty. You feel sick and listless and somewhat guilty then several hours later you are hungry again. This is a frequent cycle for many people,...Read More
