Happy June!

Summer is finally here! I’m already having a blast hitting the pool, working out at the park, and meeting up with my besties to chat over some healthy summer dishes. I hope you’re having some fun in the sun too!

I wanted to take a minute to have a quick heart-to-heart talk. With the rising summer temps, it’s important to monitor your heart. The risk of heart attack increases as the temperature does. 

Let’s just get to the heart of the matter: 18.2 million Americans have heart disease, and heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the States.

However, did you know that 80% of heart disease cases are preventable?  

To help you avoid becoming a statistic here are my heart health tips to keep your heart feeling great all summer long: 

  1. Kick saturated and trans fats, sodium, and added sugars to the curb
  2. Get up and get moving every single day
  3. Find fun and healthy ways to deal with stress
  4. Cut out any bad habits like smoking or drinking
  5. Don’t neglect your annual physicals (semi-annual if you’re over 65) 
  6. Monitor your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar
  7. When your intuition speaks to you – LISTEN! 

If you stay proactive with your health, you can avoid major crises. Remember, it’s NEVER TOO LATE to start a healthy routine no matter what age, where you live, or what shape you’re in.

Follow Your HeartMy dear client Bonnie is a good example. She was bedridden for five years due to morbid obesity. Rather than give up, we started training right there in her bed.

It was a tough road ahead, but I knew I could help her accomplish her weight loss goals and make her life better. I’ve never been afraid of a challenge. At one point I called my incredible fireman friend Reggie Lester. He gathered all of his firemen and EMT buddies to help me build a new bed so I could continue to safely train her. And guess what?

The plan worked! Shortly after, we got her out of her bed and cut her out of that house for good! She’s back on the right track and showing people that it really is NEVER TOO LATE

Thing is…Everyone thought it was too late for Bonnie (Bonnie thought that too), but I knew better. No matter what your circumstances, I will keep working with you to get a healthy fresh start for your heart. All of my coaching programs were designed with your health in mind. 

I help my clients tackle stress so they aren’t putting extra pressure on their heart. I can show you heart-healthy workouts that are ideal for beginners and pros. I also share coaching tips to help you make smarter decisions for your diet and your heart. 

My ultimate goal is to help you take back your fabulous! Learn more about how you can work with me to bolster your heart health.

Have fun in the sun!
