This is what changes with your health when you exercise
Sometimes I feel like a broken record.
You’re constantly hearing from me how important exercise is to your health and how so many of your health problems will improve or even disappear as the result of a consistent exercise program.
Why do I continue to give you the same lecture?
Because I’ve seen exercise change lives. I’ve even seen exercise save lives.
Here are the Top 4 Health Improvement Factors that come as a result of challenging, consistent exercise:
1. Your energy levels boost and you feel great.
I have noticed that most people don’t realize how bad they feel. They get used to feeling bad. Then when they start exercising they feel so much better. Your energy levels soar and you feel excited about life again.
2. Your muscles and joints feel better than ever.
You’ll notice a reduction in aches and pains once you’ve been sticking with an exercise program for a few weeks. That chronic muscle and joint pain that you’ve lived with for years may begin to fade. For some, joint replacement surgery is postponed. For others, arthritis pain is reduced.
3. Your risk of heart attack or stroke is reduced.
I like to remind my clients of this one, since it’s not something they can physically feel, but it’s the one that saves lives! Exercise has the power to remove two of the major risk factors that lead to heart disease: 1) physical inactivity and 2) obesity. Exercise also increases your good cholesterol (HDL) and lowers your blood pressure.
4. Your blood sugar levels are better controlled.
Clients of mine with type 2 diabetes see substantial benefits from exercise. Exercise improves the body’s use of insulin, and the related weight loss improves insulin sensitivity. For many, exercise becomes the natural, permanent antidote to their type 2 diabetes.
There are SO MANY benefits to exercise, why would anyone avoid doing it?! Typically it comes down to excuses.
- If you’re tired…exercise gives you energy.
- If you’re in pain…exercise alleviates your muscle and joint pain.
- If you’d rather stay in bed…exercise makes your sleep more restful.
- If you’re pressed for time…exercise improves your efficiency and extends your life.
- If you don’t know where to start…that’s where I come in.

It’s time you start enjoying all the benefits of exercise. Let’s do this!
Your Best You
Take a moment and imagine your ‘best you’.
What does the ‘best you’ look like? How does the ‘best you’ spend their time? Who would the ‘best you’ spend time with? What would the ‘best you’ accomplish?
The distance between you and your ‘best you’ is created by laziness.
When faced with decisions, big or small, do what your ‘best you’ would do, rather than taking the easy way out.
(I’m pretty sure that your ‘best you’ is a client of mine!)

Are You Toxic? Could You Use A Colonic? But What Is A Colonic Anyway?
Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle purified water washing of the large intestine to clean, detoxify and aid in the reconstitution of intestinal flora. You comfortable lie on a colonic table and with a colon hydrotherapy machine, water is run very slowly into the colon. When slight pressure builds up in the colon, the water is released. To insure maximum sanitation, a disposable water and waste line and applicator are used. The therapeutic goals of colon therapy are to balance body chemistry, eliminate waste, and restore proper tissue and organ function.” (click to learn more)

Want To Try Some Kombucha?
Known as the “Immortal Health Elixir” by the Chinese and originating in the Far East around 2,000 years ago, kombucha is a beverage with tremendous health benefits extending to your heart, your brain and (especially) your gut.
Due to the fermentation process involved in creating kombucha, it contains a large number of healthy bacteria known as probiotics. These bacteria line your digestive tract and support your immune system, as they absorb nutrients and fight infection and illness.
Since 80 percent of your immune system is located in your gut, and the digestive system is the second largest part of your neurological system, it’s no surprise that the gut is considered the “second brain.”
Drinking kombucha every day can help you to maintain peak immune health, which trickles down into an impressive number of benefits for your overall health.
