Parts Unknown

I’m finally writing this. I hate that tragedy hit first. I dedicate this article to the late Anthony Bourdain, a man who inspired so many to seek and savor… I joined my husband watching a random TV show on a Saturday morning. Hey, is that Anthony Bourdain? Hey, is that Charleston? What is this? I…

Whole Fit Relaunch

In January 2014, I was doing major soul-searching about my career. I had a quality house and car and a solid, amazing romance going. They say when someone is no longer preoccupied with survival or love, the mind wanders to other worries. I had been working since age 14, and along the way taking the…

Happy Thoughts

I found my passion in health and fitness and have had excellent opportunities to work with clients… YMCAs, fitness centers, medical office, personal training, group exercise, nutrition counseling, lifestyle coaching. It is not an easy field. Adverse human behaviors and outside influencers make “being well” a constant battle. It’s feedback like this that makes the…

Clients Small & Large

I am grateful for a diverse background in communications… Major agencies. Boutique firms. Client-side. Non-profit. Freelance. Owner. Each brand was unique and stimulating, shaping me into a well-rounded liaison, cultivator and artist. After determining to refocus my career, I worked full-time in health and fitness. Now, I am prepared to use all these experiences for…

GX Thanks

Group Exercise has played a big role in my fitness life for about 14 years. I remember fondly my free access to the state-of-the-art “Strom” center as a student at USC. And, my goodness, I took advantage. That’s where I attended my first GX class – probably pilates. Then I was hooked forever. All these…

Chronic Care Management

An estimated 117 million adults have at least one chronic health condition, and an estimated one in every four adults have two or more chronic health conditions. In a questionable healthcare system, mostly focused on treatment instead of prevention, it is not a wonder. Medical providers actually profit short-term by sick patients visiting often. But,…

First Week

Like many people, I took advantage of a lot of opportunities to indulge over the holidays. Nearly every event was centered around food. The wine, beer and cocktails runneth over. My rambunctious brother was visiting and stayed at our house for a week. So yeah. I think we all “give ourselves a break” during the…

Resolve to Succeed

It’s that time again. We can’t believe it’s December. Christmas is almost here. We recap our year, taking stock of the best times and worst times. We evaluate, how did 2017 go? We think about a new year and a new beginning. It means something to us, somehow. Self-improvement is a shared hobby. It is…

Meet Me at the Bar

Closing out the year strong, and having a little flexibility of schedule, I decided to take on a new fitness venture. My office life kept me in Greenville, so what better time to explore that area. I had two friends petition me to come to their group exercise classes. They didn’t have to try hard…
