People think I am strong and healthy because of genetics, or because I spend all day working out in a fitness studio. No and No! I am in my studio all day because I am running a business. And my family, honestly, is not in very good shape. My father already had full-blown Type 2 Diabetes at my age, my mom, sisters and brothers are all overweight or obese, pre-diabetic or Type 2, have back problems and/or have high blood pressure. In fact, genetically, it doesn’t look good for me.
What’s the difference? How did I get in the best shape of my life at age 62? I chose not to turn on the bad genes. For starters, I make sure I strength and cardio train with kettle bells (and run 5k’s with my daughter if she asks!), eat as well as I can, take Juice Plus every day, get plenty of sleep, breathe deeply, use Neals Yard organic products on my body, and clean and sanitize my studio and my home without chemicals, using only water and Norwex products.
These 3 Pillars of Health are the the Core Matters and the foundation of everything we do because science has taught me 2 important things: 1. Our body operates at its best when it’s supported and balanced, and 2. Balance is achieved by combining Strength, Fitness, good Brain Mapping, Solid Nutrition, and complete Recovery.
