Is Muscle the Key to Longevity?

 Is muscle the antidote for inflammation? Is it the key to longevity? Is the solution muscle? As we age you can actually be the exact same weight as you were 30 years ago. Here's the difference, if you are not actively putting on muscle, you are actively losing muscle. 

"We talk about being over -fat but really the problem is being under-muscled. Muscle is the largest organ of the body...." Dr. Gabrielle Lyon

I am not discussing this to scare you or push you in to understanding the value of strength training. I am sharing this information with you because I've seen it time and time again. I know first hand the importance of putting on solid dense muscle tissue to help with inflammation, cortisol levels, hormones, bone density, and much much more as shared in these short clips.














Getting started can be overwhelming. It can be confusing and a daunting task. In reality it can be a very small portion out of your day. In fact I'm seeing incredible success with students starting in their 50's, 60's, and 70's committing to a few body weight exercises 20 minutes 3 times a week. It can be that simple! 


If you need help in getting started feel free to drop me a line. I've been working with people all over the world for 15+ years. I'd be honored to help you too! Contact me here

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
