Our passion for overall health stems from years of coaching, personal training, and participating in a variety of sports, including competing at the Division I level of collegiate athletics. But after we got married, had 4 children in 6 years, and got out of those structured fitness environments, we were faced with how to live healthy as a lifestyle…not just when a coach is mandating 2-a-day practices and no sodas!
While we certainly enjoy pursuing health and fitness, neither are the most important parts of our lives. We are best friends and business partners, and place the highest value on our family time. We have been blessed with 4 beautiful children, and are privileged to be raising 3 of them. Our 3rd child, Hosea Nathan, was born April 9, 2006. SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) took him from us unexpectedly on May 6, 2006. His short life on this earth has forever changed the course of our family, challenging us to live each day to the fullest and redeem every moment.
The loss of our third son taught something very important….the value of time. This lesson has carried over into our quest for “lifestyle health” (i.e. a health routine that we can maintain long-term because it’s feasible)! Time is a currency just like money. We can all choose to spend it however we wish. Even though we know that maintaining a healthy family requires “spending” some of that time, we aren’t Super Man and Wonder Woman! We look for ways to get the best results and save time, one of our most valuable commodities. While we haven’t found the convenient “magic bullet” that exempts us from a little time and effort on our parts (because we don’t believe it exists!), we have found time-saving, healthy, convenient resources, recipes, ideas, and workouts that have helped us achieve the best health of our lives!
Tragedy and loss can either make you or break you. While we have certainly grieved deeply over the loss of our son, our family has chosen to not just survive. We anticipate the day when we will all be reunited in heaven. Until that time, we will live life to the fullest and seek to positively impact the lives of others.
We invite you to join our family in reclaiming your health and transforming your life…efficiently. We are honored to have you on the journey!
