Creating a Minimalist Home Gym

With more gyms shutting down due to covid, more people are being forced to find alternative options for continuing with their workout. For those that do not want to lose momentum, this post give you plenty of information on options of equipment you can use at home. Working out at home is something I’ve done … continue reading…

Bare minimums for demanding stages of life

During this stage of life you may find it extremely difficult to think beyond today, tomorrow, or this week, let alone think about ways to improve your health and wellness habits. This post explains why you are living in a fog and what you can do during these demanding stages. When I enrolled to get … continue reading…

What to Expect When Training with Me

If you are reading this, you are probably curious about my personal approach to fitness training and nutrition coaching as well as how long you will have to work with me to get results or reach your goals.

Walkin’ in Wausau – Rib Mountain State Park

My title is a bit misleading. This post is not really about Rib Mountain State Park, but the walking path that runs parallel with Park Road (that leads into the State Park), I believe it might be called, The Bone & Joint Trail — or maybe part just part of it is (??). 🤷‍♀️ I … continue reading…

Walkin’ in Wausau – Bluegill Bay Park

I hesitated sharing this park. It’s one of those places hidden in plain sight (ok, I kept forgetting about it) and after you have ‘discovered’ it for yourself, you want to keep it for yourself.

After the MS walk, … continue reading…

Walkin’ in Wausau – River Street Park

If you read last week’s post, you may remember that I “discovered” this park through a friend’s invite to participate in an MS walk. The walk began at the Central Wisconsin Convention & Expo Center and followed the Cedar Creek Trail. River Street Park is where we turned around to head back to CWCE Center.  The park … continue reading…

Walkin’ in Wausau – Doepke Park

Next up on our park tour is Doepke Recreation Area. This is “our” place. It’s usually our first choice, we do quick outings or spend as much time here as possible, we stop here after running errands, we’ve practiced riding without training wheels here, we’ve tested out our snowshoes here, etc.    This park has it … continue reading…
