    Celebrating Shiny Happy People

    Celebrating Shiny Happy People - Teri and Andy Murphy This couple - Teri and Andy Murphy - has been with BBS Lifestyle for many years now and there have been many fun moments in our partnership over the years. I took this picture last week because they were literally shiny and happy and I wanted to capture that. We always start our sessions with the question "How are you doing today?" and Andy said, "Better and better!" That is the way we want our clients and friends to feel every day. This feeling comes when you have a mentor and consistent support and accountability. Nobody ever achieved anything ALONE. Teri and Andy know that and make sure they stay connected. You both inspire me! ....

  • Are You Drinking Enough Water? (Nutrition Coaching)

    Are You Drinking Enough Water? (Nutrition Coaching)

    Ok, summer is here and with it the heat and humidity and we are all sweating! The question I get A LOT lately is: How much water should I drink? While everyone knows to drink "plenty" of water, not many people know actually how much they should drink and often shy away with the excuse, "I will have to sit in the bathroom all day if I drink a gallon a day!" Well, here is a simple rule for water intake! Divide your body weight in pounds by 2 and that number is how many ounces of water you should drink per day. For example, I weigh about 145lbs, divided by 2 I should drink about 72.5 ounces of water 💧 And drinking "plenty" of water is one of the basics of healthy lifestyle. It doesn't have ....

    53 And Fabulous! (Personal Training)

    This is Jill, she is 53 years old and she has been embracing a healthy lifestyle. Her success didn't happen over night and she isn't finished. Jill understands that this is a process, not a destination. Key to living a healthy lifestyle is to ENJOY the process as much as THE OUTCOME. And it starts with simple habits - basics of a healthy life style - sleep, water, nutrients, movement and support. Jill went from about 160lbs to 140lbs once she started to really embrace: SLEEP (7 to 9 hours) WATER (more on this topic in another post that is coming this week) NUTRIENTS (sufficient protein and calorie deficit) MOVEMENT (resistance training) SUPPORT (coach to hold her accountable) She ....

  • Why Are Older Adults Indifferent, Scared, and/or Reluctant to Exercise?

    Why Are Older Adults Indifferent, Scared, and/or Reluctant to Exercise?

    Why Are Older Adults Indifferent, Scared, and/or Reluctant to Exercise? Exercise can bring numerous benefits to older adults, both physically and psychologically, so why aren’t older adults active enough? Sometimes the biggest challenges to training, or even attempting any exercise at all, are perceived barriers. To include just a few, there's fear of injury, not feeling confident, exercising on your own, and lack of knowledge on what to do. One of the challenges I’m often faced with is a lack of interest in starting an exercise program, which is often confusing, since potential(and current) clients demonstrate a clear understanding that more activity means better health. Some ....

    You Can Stop The Clock! (Virtual Personal Training)

    You Can Stop the Clock! Despite all the anti-aging products pushed on us, it's inevitable that we will get older. However, some of the things we lose as we age can actually be prevented, including: Strength and Muscle: Sarcopenia is the fancy term scientists have given to describe loss of muscle, strength, and quality of tissue often seen in older adults. Some experts have suggested that muscle mass declines about 1 percent each year from age 30. Cardio Endurance: As we age, we often lose aerobic fitness and experts believe this contributes to reduced mobility in daily life. Flexibility: Joints change with age and this can lead to stiffness, decreased range of motion and more injuries ....
