    Many of us in the North East are just recovering from winter storm Jonas that kept us in the house and buried under several feet of snow for a few days. With winter finally rearing it's ugly head, there's no signs of it slowly anytime soon. So I'm handing out some armor of wisdom with 5 ways to stay happy, healthy and fit throughout this winter season's snowstorms.

  • The Truth About Sugar

    03.02.2016 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    By: Rebecca Nenner, Certified Holistic Health Coach 

    It turns out that many of the things we thought we knew about health and weight loss were about not eating fat.  We were told that fat makes you fat and that it raises your cholesterol and clogs your arteries.  That is a myth.  

    Back in the 1980’s a gentleman by the name of Ancel Keys came up with the hypothesis that fat will make you sick and fat.  We were told to eat a high carb/low fat diet.  This hypothesis was never fully tested, and as it turns out, we ... Read More

  • The Many Benefits of Coconut Oil

    Google the benefits of coconut oil and you will get tons of websites giving you hundreds of ways to use coconut oil.  The reason is, it’s one of the best things to have ever!  Many people have stayed away from coconut oil because it is a saturated fat, and saturated fats have been deemed to be evil and harmful.  In this case it couldn’t be further from the truth.  Coconut oil is a medium chain triglyceride, which is very different structurally from most saturated fats that are long chain triglycerides.  Coconut ...

  • How to Prevent Colds and Flu

    By: Rebecca Nenner

    It’s cold and flu season. No one likes to get sick, but unfortunately we do sometimes.  To prevent colds, the best offense is a good defense, as they say at the Redskins!  Typically, people who tend to catch the most colds are the ones who have little children who attend school.  The simple reason is that most kids haven’t built up their immune system, so they are more susceptible to getting sick, and they bring these viruses home to mom and dad, who then pass it on to co-workers.

    The immune system is the very ... Read More

  • Working Out While On The Road

    01.27.2016 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    By Deanna Jefferson, CPT

    Aside from fitness, traveling is one of my most favorite things to do. Oftentimes vacations or travel for work can be the excuse we need to fall off of our workout regimen. Here is my cheat sheet for ways to continue working out while on the road.

    Cheat 1: Try to book a hotel with a fitness center on-site. If a hotel has a gym you're more likely to take an elevator ride downstairs to get in a workout. Check with concierge services about what amenities are available to you.

    Cheat 2: Many hotels have ... Read More

  • Creating New Habits For the New Year's Instead Of Resolutions

    12.23.2015 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    By: Rebecca Nenner

    I find it interesting that people tend to do the same thing over and over again when New Year’s comes around.  They overeat during the holiday season, and then they want to lose some weight when the New Year starts.  People vow that this year they will lose weight and keep it off, yet, it never seems to happen like that.

    The reason is simple.  You can’t expect a diet to save you.  It won’t, it never has!

    What you can do is create a lifestyle change which involves changing your behavior or creating ... Read More
