Fresh air, dirt and sunshine! I LOVE being outdoors working in my yard and garden this time of year!
Now I'll admit I don't particularly LOVE pulling weeds, but I do love how everything looks when I'm done!
As much as I enjoy it, gardening is hard work and can lead to a variety of aches and pains. And if you're in pain you're certainly not going to enjoy yourself or the bounty your garden will bring when both you and your garden are properly cared for!
So today, I wanted to share some of my favorite tips to help keep you gardening all summer long...without pain!

Do I Have To Take My Clothes Off?
Well that's awkward, right?
Not really! This was actually a very good question I had recently about our Body Composition Testing.
"Do I have to take my clothes off?"
The short answer is...NO! We prefer you keep your clothes on!
But I can see why someone would be concerned. The most common methods for body fat testing you have probably experienced requires exposing your skin to have your fat pinched with skin fold calipers, or getting into a swimsuit and being dunked in tub of water.
So I wanted to answer this question today and clear this one up.
Watch the short video demonstration below to see just how simple our Body Composition Testing is!
Pretty simple right?
And best of all...you get to keep your clothes on :)
If you’re in your 40’s, 50’s or 60’s you may have noticed it takes a little more effort to maintain your health. This is also the age range where I hear more complaints of nagging aches and pains that just seem to come out of nowhere and then hang around for months or years.
Why is that?
One of the biggest reasons is a loss of muscle mass and strength. As you approach your 40’s, you start to lose muscle mass faster than your body rebuilds it due to changes in hormonal levels, changes in activity and other health factors.
As we move into the warmer Spring and Summer months a lot of people naturally start to be more active and have a renewed focus on improving their health.
This is also a time of year that we see more injuries as people start getting back into a fitness routine. Obviously, the goal is to improve your health and fitness so you can enjoy your favorite activities, not be held back or left out of the fun because of an injury.
If you find yourself a little (or a lot) out of shape, here are 7 tips for getting back into a fitness routine to improve your health and avoid any injuries or setbacks.
