Get Moving!

27 Jul

My goal in to encourage people to get out and be active so they can enjoy a long healthy life.  With this blog I hope to share my daily practices with exercise and diet.  Living in the Tahoe/Reno area there are so many enjoyable outdoor  activities to embrace and my goal is to share the things I enjoy while hearing feedback from others on what they’re doing .

In the winter I spend as much of my time snowboarding, but since the snow is all go I’ve had to open new doors and find new activities to keep me challenged.  Although I have no problem working out in a gym (and find myself in one a few times I week) I enjoy getting outside and using my great surroundings to keep me active.  Since the snow has been gone, I’ve been mountain biking a ton and love how challenging this sport is.  I also have been doing a lot of swimming and hiking and recently just found and new love in stand up paddle boarding.  I have such a passion for all of these things and love being able to share them with others.

Exercising has always been an important part of my daily routine and I think its essential in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  Here are some reasons why exercising is so important: it reverses the detrimental effects of stress, it lifts depression, it improves learning, it builds self esteem and leaves you feeling euphoric. I look forward to blogging about the things I love to do and hope I can be of some influence in helping others further their passion in an active and healthy lifestyle.
