How do you make your Passion into a REAL Fitness Career?

How do you make your Passion into a REAL Fitness Career?

“Do what you love”…. “It’s not about the money”… There is a very real and very obvious problem with so many of these messages regarding many aspirational jobs, especially a fitness career. Unless you are privileged with a family (or situation), which doesn’t require you to make your own money, the fact is that we need to make money to survive. Of course if it’s just something you love and you want ...[Read More]

Maintaining Your Sexy Summer Body at Social Events

Maintaining Your Sexy Summer Body at Social Events

For me, Memorial Day marks the ‘unofficial’ beginning to summer. This means calendars fill up with social events, parties, picnics, barbeques and more. It also brings many opportunities to indulge in those ‘moment on the lips, forever on the hips’ type treats. If there is one thing to know about me, it’s that I strongly believe life is all about LIVING and we should be able to enjoy these types of ...[Read More]
