  • 8/26/2015 MARINETTE — Some people have the ability to roll out of bed in the morning, brush their hair for a bit and go about their day without a second thought. Tina Serrano, 42, of Marinette does not have that luxury. 

  • Develop healthy back-to-school habits
    8/19/2015 It’s that time of year when parents start thinking about getting the kids ready to go back to school. There’s always a lot to do: Registering for classes, buying school supplies and checking out which clothes fit or what needs to be purchased for this school year. As busy at it gets, it’s also a good time to think about getting back in the swing of healthy habits. 

  • On the road to be a triathlete
    8/12/2015 Standing in the water at the starting line in a crowd of competitors, with hundreds of spectators watching, waiting for the gun to go off. Adrenaline rushing through my body, my heart pounding in my ears, and my mind is focusing on one thing, crossing that finish line. Then, BANG, the gun goes off and I go diving head first into the water and all the anticipation from months of hard work and dedication to training have paid off. This is how I got hooked to triathlons and why everyone should give triathlons a try.

  • Weight management: Not the same as dieting
    7/15/2015 We are all bombarded, on a daily basis, with information about dieting. Eat this. Don’t eat that. Work out early. Don’t eat late. It’s no wonder most people really don’t have any idea about what works best anymore. Let me suggest reframing how you think about it with two words: weight management.   

  • Becoming an aqua kid at RCCP
    7/8/2015 Children are not really a group that comes to mind when we think of programmed exercise. Yet, getting children acclimated with the water and teaching them to use the pool as an exercise tool has shown to provide a number of benefits to not only the health of the child, but their safety and development as well. A substantial body of research supports early swimming lessons and acclimation with the water to significantly reduced the risk of drowning, improve motor and neurological development, accelerate cognitive development, improve memory, aid in communication skills and improve social confidence.

I want you to know that with a sound plan, belief in yourself, commitment, discipline, consistency and perseverance you can achieve your running goals. 

  • Is it gardening aches and pains or is it arthritis?
    6/17/2015 This time of year, there are a lot of people who become “weekend warriors.” They’re out gardening, doing yard work or participating in outdoor sports like golf, bicycling or running; things they haven’t done since the weather turned cold last fall. It inevitably leads to Monday morning aches and pains. But how do you know when those aches and pains are something more? Maybe arthritis? 

  • 6/17/2015 WASHINGTON — June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, and multiple levels of government are drawing awareness to the disease by sponsoring legislation supporting affected individuals and supporting initiatives to protect citizens who may act out as a result of the disease.
