Amendment One

 I had not intended that this blog would go beyond things relating to fitness but it is a deep desire on my part to be on record about a subject that is currently hotly discussed in North Carolina. Amendment One is a proposed constitutional amendment which, if passed, would codify into the constitution of North Carolina that the only legally recognized relationship between two people is a marriage between a man and a woman.

I dig deep and really get my mind into what I am doing, and push through to the last rep. I pretend that my trainer is standing behind me and counting, so I definitely don’t cheat on the reps! I tell myself “the end is near”- meaning the end of this workout, and the reward is rest, recovery, and a healthy meal to nourish me.


With both my Undergraduate and Masters' degrees in fitness and over 20 years experience as a Personal Trainer, I'm excited about the opportunity to share my knowledge via this blog.  Never before have so many people had such access to information as they do today via the internet, and yet people continue to struggle with weight loss, fitness, and living a healthy lifestyle.  As a group, Americans have never been more unhealthy despite having all this information at their disposal.  I'm here to help dispell some myths and help as many people as I can to g
