Doing the Right Thing

Doing the Right Thing

Fitness is, on its face, about helping people achieve real, meaningful changes to their bodies, health, and capabilities. It's about improving weaknesses, functioning better, and living more richly. With that promise, fitness grabs our collective attention as an alluring and fulfilling goal, something worth investing real time, money, and focus. 

As with any investment, we care about the results; in fact, the more we invest, the more we care.  Of course, we care about the "return" on our investment--what has changed--but, because it's our sweat turning the crank, we also care how it feels getting there. So if we care so much, and have invested so deeply, shouldn't we also care about the tools we're using to get there?

Kitchen Alchemy: Every Day is Taco Tuesday

Taco bowls are the best, you guys. Easy? Check. Delicious? Check. Packed with nutrients? Check. Customizable to your heart’s content? Check. Best of all, you can whip one up in under 20 minutes.

Here’s my formula...

Today she is deadlifting, squatting, pushing the sled, and being an all-around functional fitness badass.

Kitchen Alchemy: TFA Chicken Soup

Kitchen Alchemy: TFA Chicken Soup

Over lunch the other day (while enjoying the homemade chicken soup recipe included here), Hannah and I got to talking about how inspired we get by food that just seems to fall together--easily, cheaply, nutritiously. In this case, two rotisserie chickens (one of our favorite quick grabs), bought to make curried chicken salad the week before, had then become homemade bone broth (or, pretty much the healthiest thing you can make in your own kitchen...), and that broth had become this soup. 

This Year, Let Your Garden Grow

This Year, Let Your Garden Grow

Well, it's that time of year again. January. Resolution season. Blank slate, fresh start, New You! Also known as: where best intentions go to die.  January is too often the time when lovely, admirable intentions are made (January 1), acted on (January 2) and then abandoned (January 5). By the end of the month, we're usually back to our regularly scheduled programming, and feeling very much like we did the year before. Coach Will shares how to break this cycle, and actually follow through on your resolutions.

We're in the business of changing bodies. 
Not overnight--that's called plastic surgery--and not just for looks (although that is definitely a goal for some of our clients). No, we are focused on one thing: working with you, now, where you are, to be better.
