It's a La Fitness World!

Morning Wakeup Inversion

Here is a great tasting recipe that I use all the time as a dressing. Can be put on salads, chicken, fish or used as a dip.
Ingredients: 2 tbsp. Greek Non-fat plain yogurt, 1 tbsp. Olive Oil, 1/2 tbsp. Baslamic vinegar, and 1 tsp. Honey.
Mix together and enjoy!


I want to wish everyone a healthy and fun 4th of July!


Mix up your workout by adding a Walk/Run/Lunge workout to your routine. Easy: Walk 3 min/Run 1 min/20 Lunges or Hard: Walk 2 min/Run 4 min/ 30 Lunges


Use everything around you to your advantage... A great way I get out and move is to grab my dog and head out on my bike.

Arms Sprints!

Arm sprints are a super fun cardio workout focusing on your arms and core!


Seeds are a great source of protein and taste great! H**p, sunflower and pumpkin seeds are just a few excellent ways to top off salads or your favorite yogurt! Use instead of protein mixes and bars to feel more energized!

Sitting All Day? Head-To-Toe Tips For A More Ergonomic Workstation

Get up as much as you can to feel great! By now we're sure you know that sitting all day isn't doing your health any favors. Spending too much time seated at a desk has been linked to all sorts of negative health effects, like an increased risk of diabetes, cancer and, yes, even death.


Hula Hoop Baby

This is how EVERYONE should enjoy working out! A video of a baby that tries to hula hoop like his big sister. Decent form, but his technique needs work plz rate and comment


Thinking of creating a yoga movement class that uses a combo of rhythmic yoga poses, martial arts katas, and different dance forms, all done to music. This is my way of making yoga class La-fun!


La-ism: Every "body" is different. Your prescription for health is not necessarily theirs.

Posture! Stand up! 05/22/2012

Posture! Stand up!


Yoga class just starting. Can't wait to see them after...


La-ism: I moisturize my face with lemon juice, and I clean my floors with vinegar. If I can't eat it, I don't use it.

Dancing and Training! 05/21/2012

Dancing is exercise too


Sunday is my day of rest, but not my day of inactivity. I walked my little 4lb. doggie (for her exercise), then I took her for a bike ride. Now I'm cleaning my house (no fun), but I'm dancing my way through it (way fun!)


Fueling my body for my classes this morning with plain low fat yogurt (yuck), fresh strawberries and my concoction of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds (mm mm good). That covers all the bases for my nutritional needs for a little while.


Get your "bodymachine" going with any movement, and any movement counts. 1,5 or 10 minutes is better than nothing at all!!!!


Making life fun and exciting!
