    I have noticed a trend in my office over the past couple weeks – clients frustrated with weight loss plateaus.

    I quickly checked my calendar and thought, “right on time!” It is 8 eight weeks into the New Year and the New Years Resolutions of losing weight is losing its luster. This is a crucial moment in your weight management journey and what you do at this point can determine whether you are successful in life long weight management or you re-enter the cycle known as yo-yo dieting.

    With a last name like Rypien, it's hard to be ignored in Redskins Nation, especially on the 20th anniversary of Super Bowl XXVI. With one of the greatest teams ever assembled, Mark Rypien led the Redskins to victory over the Bills, took home the title of Super Bowl MVP and cemented his title as leader of one of the best offenses in Redskins history.

    Twenty years later, there's another Rypien making a splash in the football world and it’s probably not who you would expect.

    Will weight lifting bulk you up? Is cardio the only exercise your body really needs?

  • Strong to the Bone! Exercise and Osteoporosis

    02.21.2012 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    By Becky Johnson, Certified Personal Trainer (ACE); IBNFC Certified Nutrition Coach

    Osteoporosis is an age-related disorder in which the bones become gradually thinner and porous and over time, are less able to support the weight of the body. It has a debilitating effect on quality of life, as it limits a person’s independence. Osteoporosis attacks both men and women but women are at greater risk for developing the condition. Women tend to suffer more severely because they start with a lower bone density, lose more bone mass as they age and bone loss accelerates even more rapidly following menopause ... Read More

    For many moms-to-be, the news of pregnancy is filled with excitement, anticipation, anxiety and a promise to do everything right for the little bundle of joy. The question of whether to continue or begin an exercise program for your health and the baby often comes up.

    The first step to help answer this question is to check with your doctor. While exercise during pregnancy is usually encouraged, under some circumstances exercise should be avoided to prevent risks to the fetus and the mother. Only after a thorough ... Read More
