A Little Background 

Mindful Movement and Purposeful Training

      Anyone can attend a group class, buy a DVD, or join a Crossfit box to find guidance in exercise.

Does Pilates with its emphasis on precision, concentration and memorization of movement patterns-enhance brain function as well as physical function? Scientists from Yanshan University in Qinhuangdao, China, and Beijing Normal University wanted to find out. In preliminary research on five subjects, the investigators measured changes in brain activity as a result of Pilates training-and found an increase in the brain's alpha peak power after ten weeks of training.

Is Lasik Worth It?

About 6 years ago my wife finally pushed me over the edge, as I had been considering laser eye surgery for a while, and I went it for a consultation. Now this place was nice, and let me tell you that their sales process/pitch is WELL refined. Its almost impossible to say no!

We got interest free financing via a CARE credit card which is something that you can get to cover medical and health expenses. A Visa for health care if you will.

Stay Committed

So it's a new year and the common theme is to come up with a New's Resolution for the new year.  Many people focus on losing weight, spending time with love ones, or even focusing on being more organized.  No matter what you decide to do just remember to take this one day at a time.  To many of us look to far ahead and forget about the process that gets us to where we currently stand.  Understand that there will be setbacks, and there will be moments where we feel the need to quit.  But I want to encourage you to press on.  Keep pushing forward and reme
