An Elite Athlete Who Is Also A Grandma

Terese seems to defy the normal aging process with her strength, power, and endurance. This grandmother to five has several first place marathon finishes and is also a top ranked Ironman! The most surprising part of her story, she didn’t start training till she was in her 40s!!! One day she decided to run and get the mail...literally. Her amazing journey to becoming an elite athlete started by a jog to the mailbox. Each day she went a bit further and then a bit further. She... Read More

“I Don’t Dread Workouts Anymore!”

Kathy began working with Body Within for the unusual reasons...stress management, convenience, and to create consistency with her workouts. For years she worked on building functional strength and always liked having a little yoga every now and again. Well, you know that saying, life comes at you fast...? One day Kathy’s life unexpectedly shifted gears, but she was READY! Physically she was strong. We had challenged her enough throughout training that she felt confident ... Read More

Your Health is Your Wealth

Retirement was supposed to be a peaceful time for enjoying his dream home, playing with grandchildren, and having time to take them hunting and fishing on his property.  Retirement was the culmination of decades of hard work and sacrifice.  Then the diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease came.  Body Within is fortunate to work with amazing clients.  People who have fortitude.  People who get knocked down, but get back up.  People who take action.&nb...

Where Should I Begin?

It was a visit to the doctor's office that started everything.  Blood pressure was higher...again.  Weight was up as well.  Stress was not managed.  Sleeping was a challenge.  This was just the beginning! The doc looked over the top of his glasses and simply said, "You need to exercise." Simple enough...if you know how!  And frankly, sweating was gross and gyms were dirty.  So the first logical step seemed to be as straight forward as tak... Read More

Me Time Means Go Time

Every day, before the sun rises, know an ambitious woman is starting her day off right.  You see, the time before day breaks is absolutely precious.  The house is quiet.  The husband and two young boys are still tucked away.  Even the dog is half-hearted at this early hour.  But, this is the golden hour of Me Time! Now, Me Time is a little different each day.  Some days are dedicated to reading, mediation, personal growth, and reflection. ... Read More

Super Papa!

“I don’t want to be a papa. I want to be a SUPER papa!” I remember the day we had this conversation. It was as if I could see his cape swirling in the wind behind him. He was inspired. I was inspired and five grand kids later he is living up to his words. SUPER papa does everything from sledding in the winter to family baseball tournaments in the summer...on the field he built! He walks the woods, taps trees, boils the sap to make maple syrup, and relishes the laughter ... Read More

Family Matters

A blessing for Body Within is the length of time our clients stay with us. This couple is just one example of training across the years. When we first teamed up with this husband and wife life was just beginning to move into a new stage. The last child of three was finishing high school and it was time to prepare for an empty nest. Both had careers that demanded high levels of mental concentration and long hours away home. Our workouts provided them an opportunity to create a... Read More

Smart Moves

Anyone who has ever made a real estate transaction knows the amount of energy that goes into the details of every deal.  One deal may take a realtor into a home where climbing multiple sets of stairs is required.  Another deal may be hiking a large tract of land through mud, rough terrain, or even deep snow.  Heck, a realtor might find themselves crawling through small spaces or pulling themselves over unexpected obstacles.  It may be surprising, but realt...

Exercising Smarter to Exercise Longer

Motivation was never an issue. Going to classes was fun. The gym was a great place to socialize and meet like-minded people! The only problem...which was a BIG problem...classes weren’t individualized. They couldn’t be. Everyone did the same thing, over and over, with only a few alternatives here and there. Hiring a personal trainer seemed unnecessary, but one Christmas she was gifted a trainer and everything changed. No...she didn’t stop going to classes. Instead, s... Read More

A Real Go-Getter

One of our most consistent clients we’ve ever had at Body Within and proving “if you do it...it works!” This story began like so many others. A new client needing a few new ideas to sprinkle into an already existing program. (Often times this is a routine that has been used for years. An oldie, but a goodie.) After a few sessions learning more about body mechanics and functional movement, a forever client is born! We started working together over 10 years ago a... Read More
