The Resistance Training Revolution with Sal Di Stefano

Why is weight loss so dang difficult? Or, I guess I should say why is permanent long-term weight loss and weight management so dang difficult? Maybe you can relate to this. You go on a diet and you lose some weight – now you’re feeling good and you’re looking good. But somehow 6 months, maybe…

The Barbell Prescription Revisited with Dr. Jonathon Sullivan

18 Ways to Optimize Your Health & Prevent Chronic Disease with Emily Gold Mears

I know this isn’t breaking news, but we’re sick and getting sicker at an alarming rate. Over 70% of us are now overweight, obese, or morbidly obese. 60% of us have a chronic disease, and 40% of us have more than one. Just over half of us take pharmaceuticals daily. And here’s the crazy thing,…

The Art of Creative Movement with Dr. Julie Angel

When you hear the word Parkour, what comes to mind? For me it’s the opening scene of the 2006 James Bond movie Casino Royale with incredible stunts. Or maybe the opening scene from the US version of The Office, where Michael, Dwight and Andy are filming themselves doing hardcore parkour. But what doesn’t jump to…

Balance Your Immune System for Optimal Health with Dr. Heather Moday

Just what is an immune system? I mean, if I asked you to point to where your immune system lived in your body, where would you point? We all have an immune system, but unless you’re an immunologist, pinpointing and defining it can be tricky. But in this post Covid world we all live in,…

Dump Your Head Trash with Renie Cavallari

Why is it that the voice in our head is so often negative? For many of us our predominant inner voice is downright nasty. We often grab ahold of a negative thought and start building on it, and this often snowballs until we’re completely consumed with negative energy. And these negative thoughts can be directed…

Coach’s Corner – Strength Train for a Better Sex Life!

Ooh la la, spring is in the air, and as one of Bambi’s friends said in the 1942 Disney classic, “everybody gets twitterpated in the springtime!” But some of us over 50 get less twitterpated than we used to, and we’re often way too quick to attribute this loss of libido and performance as a…

Be Your Own Hero with Josette Tkacik

What do radical healing, quantum physics, transcendence, spiritual journeys, finding your life’s purpose, and Zumba have in common? On the surface these things don’t seem that interconnected. But before we get to that, I want to take a minute and talk about preconceived notions. We all have preconceived notions, usually concerning things we know very…

Optimal Health Through Biohacking with Zora Benhamou

You may be familiar with the term biohacking. Basically, biohacking is a DIY self-experimentation journey, where you are the subject, the scientist, and the laboratory. Biohackers typically view health as a spectrum – and they pick up where traditional medicine leaves off. That is, biohackers aren’t concerned with being not sick, or even with being…
