Inspiration from Cindy Gale

I LOVE this picture of Cindy Gale rockin the water skis. I've been working with Cindy for quite some time and she always finds a way to push herself. We've talked about water skiing goals, health and fitness goals and her passion to continue to push forward regardless or any limitation or rather the thought of a limitation.   -I'd say more times than not we have reasons why we 'can't' (which is a mind set) instead of reasons why we can. - Drew Taddia Cindy is one of those Members that ...

Inspiration from your Environment

Often I feel like I’m surrounded by inspiration, I really do. Which is why I believe you can get inspiration from your environment.

In hopes of finding your inner ninja

What a beautiful morning.  How often do we say that?  More times than not we don’t have a problem complaining about the weather and don't notice the days that offer sunshine and clear skies.

You don’t often know if people are reading, listening or if you’re making a difference at all.  I was recently sent this picture which instantly made a difference in my day.  Along...

Rock Climbing and New Experiences

For some reason I’ve always wanted to rock climb.  With a little nudge I finally went for the first time (since high school which hardly counts).  Walking in the doors I quickly found out this was a perfect niche business, and this is how:  When I signed up at the front desk (and my life away) I was soon informed that it was a healthy $16 drop in fee.  The month fee is less that $50 which means they do a great job of saying, join our club or pay a ridiculous amount of money each time you visit. ...
