Kaia FIT Corporate 0 429

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. 

If you experience a combination of any of these symptoms, it’s important you or your caregiver calls a health professional to get the help you need.

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen ankles and legs
  • Dizziness/lightheadedness
  • Aching in shoulder and chest
  • Snoring and sleep problems
  • Irregular Heartbeat

A healthy diet and regular exercise are the main components in protecting against heart disease.

Having made a point of never celebrating Valentine’s day, it is ironic my first child was born on this day.  After years of avoiding the holiday, February 14th is now one of my biggest celebrations of the year - the day I became a mother.  This was seven years ago and since embracing Valentine’s Day, I have endless reasons to make and buy sweet treats for the occasion (and a convenient excuse for derailing New Year’s intentions).

Do you know what I love about barre? It's accessible to everyone. With minimal to zero impact on joints, a barre available as a support system and a format that doesn't have you moving from the floor up to standing constantly, everyone is able to feel confident and successful in a barre class.

When the jeans you swore you just wore, no longer fit, it can be quite a wake-up call.

But whether you are motivated by the fit of your clothes, or that wedding next year you’ve been invited to, it’s time to start setting up goals so that there are no more upsetting jeans moments.

First things first, establish what your bigger overall goals are and write them down to keep you accountable.

Is your bigger goal to lose five pounds or seventeen? Be specific. Do you want to be able to run a 10k?

Is there an event you want to look your best at? Or, what about trying to lower your body fat percentage before your next doctor’s appointment?

Got that on paper?

Good. Now let’s move on.
