personal fitness training-in home or gym Dedicated to the art of movement and the science of exercise, I hold a BFA in dance and a minor in kinesiology from the University of Illinois.

I was born and raised in Chicago and began dancing at the age of 5. I made my professional dance debut in “A Mid Summer Nights Dream” with the New York City Ballet when I was 12. I performed with ballet and jazz companies and in musical theater, TV and film for over 25 years before retiring from the dance world. I returned to school to earn three national certifications as a personal trainer, from 11/25/2020

Down Syndrome Ireland
This is so inspiring 😊


Last night saw Twenty-one-year-old Andrew, a self-proclaimed 'captain of dance', wow the judges on a new reality TV show called "The Greatest Dancer".

Born with Down syndrome, Andrew was accompanied to the audition by his mum who said that since discovering dance, it has massively improved his confidence and self-esteem.

Andrew amazed not only the audience but the host judges, bringing judge Cheryl to tears with his freestyles to Can't Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake.

What a wonderful inspiration Andrew is to motivate us all this Monday!

Try Gin Soaked raisins!!!
Mine are soaking right now! I will let you know if it works for me.

How to Make Gin Soaked Raisins:
Ingredients: golden raisins and gin.
Empty the raisins into a bowl and pour in just enough gin to cover the raisins. Allow the gin to evaporate (about one week) and then place the moist raisins in a jar with a lid.
Eat nine raisins a day. They go well on cereal!
Some Questions about Gin Soaked Raisins:
There are some questions that people frequently ask.

For example, does it matter what gin is used to soak the raisins? The answer is yes. The cheapest gin does not appear to work very well. The gin should be one that is flavored with actual juniper berries (the quintessential flavoring for gin). Other botanicals may also be used, but the juniper berries appear to be important. Usually the label will give you this information, but if you are unsure, someone staffing the liquor store may be able to help.

Should the raisins be stored in the refrigerator after soaking? If someone is consuming them on a regular basis, they need not be refrigerated. Raisins generally do pretty well unrefrigerated in the cupboard; adding alcohol, which is sometimes used as a preservative for other foodstuffs, does not seem to make them more susceptible to mold or other problems.

People also wonder whether the raisins must be golden, or whether dark raisins also work. Some readers have reported using dark raisins to good effect. Usually, though, the remedy as people have learned it specifies golden (or “white”) raisins. Unless the sulfites used to preserve the raisins’ beautiful light color is a critical component of the remedy (which is possible), we can’t imagine why it would matter. Unfortunately, there have been no studies to compare the two, so we have no data for answering this question. 01/23/2016

[08/12/14]   This is an interesting post I received from a study I participated in ( maybe that's why my breast cancer never became invasive? )

Studies have shown that the risk of invasive breast cancer is decreased by 20-40% among physically active women. There is also evidence of a dose-response, meaning the more exercise you do, the more your breast cancer risk decreases. For those women who have gone through menopause results are consistent, showing that physically active women have a decreased risk of breast cancer. However, among women who have not yet undergone menopause (premenopausal women), the data are lacking. Because most studies have not had enough premenopausal women in them, the evidence that the most active women have a decreased risk for breast cancer has been inconsistent, and therefore requires further investigation. While few studies have examined whether exercise affects breast cancer risk among racial or ethnic minority women, two studies have shown that black women and Latina women who participated in higher levels of exercise throughout their lives have a decreased risk.

Exercise is also beneficial to those with a previous diagnosis of breast cancer. Studies have shown that breast cancer patients who exercise are less likely to die from their breast cancer than are women who exercise only a little or not at all. Further, after treatment ends, women who exercise have a lower risk of breast cancer recurrence.

Several theories have been proposed to explain why researchers believe exercise is beneficial in preventing the occurrence of and recurrence of breast cancer. First, exercise can decrease a woman’s exposure to certain hormones that our bodies make that circulate in the bloodstream, like estrogen and progesterone. It has long been understood that hormones can fuel the development of breast cancer, so decreasing exposure to these hormones should decrease breast cancer risk. For example, researchers have shown that moderate and strenuous exercise in adolescence leads to fewer ovulatory menstrual cycles, which in turn results in less exposure to estrogen. Further, exercise decreases body fat and obesity. In women who have already undergone menopause, the main source of estrogen in the body comes from body fat because after menopause, the ovaries stop releasing estrogen and progesterone. Since exercise can reduce the amount of body fat, it is also reducing exposure to estrogen. Aside from hormonal regulation, exercise also helps to decrease inflammation in the body, which previous research has shown is important in cancer development.

Why I don't do CrossFit

thank you Saida Staudenmaier for this link. I couldn't agree more. I do think that many facilities that call themselves crossfit have tweeked the workout to be safer however. There are good things about the motivation so I can see why a modified cross training workout would appeal to some people. Trainers use variations of some of these exercises but one size does not fit all and working out should be a way of life to keep our bodies healthy and as injury free as possible. In the world of CrossFit, pain doesn't mean gain.
