Daily Habit for Health

One of the best things you can do for your long-term health is to create a brief daily ritual of self care. It should be something that allows your breath, body and mind to move toward a place of comfort and relaxation.
One example of such a routine is this: Place a blanket on the floor and sit on it. Breathe slowly and deeply while performing the following movements. Rotate the right ankle a few times in each direction and then repeat with the other ankle. Bend the right knee, bringing your heel toward your buttocks and then extend the leg again. Repeat a few times on each leg. Sitting tall, with your arms and legs outstretched, touch the outside of your left leg with the back of your right hand and look over your left shoulder, gently rotating your spine. Then switch sides and slowly rotate back and forth a few times. Sit tall again. Lower your chin to your chest and then look up toward the ceiling. Repeat a few times.

JAG Fitness testimonial

I recently got this email from one of my clients and I wanted to share his story.

The TRUTH ABOUT EATING RIGHT the who, what, where, when how and why of the proper diet

Probably one of the most common questions I get as a fitness expert is “what should I be eating?” It makes sense to me that people don’t know what to eat because there is an abundance of available foods and so much conflicting information out there.
Interestingly enough, it seems to me like many people do actually know what they should be eating, but don’t do it because they don’t know how to incorporate it into their lifestyle in a way that works for them or they just simply aren’t willing to change their lifestyle.
