“Before NeoLife, I was a typical Mama, who didn’t have enough energy to keep up with our 4 kiddos, Jason, and all life brought with it. And as our children had been starting school and getting older, I had been thinking about part time jobs, to help supplement our family’s income. Between upcoming braces, and sports, and private school costs, it seemed that everything was getting more expensive. But, I LOVE being a stay at home Mom and wife. I love volunteering in the kids’ classrooms and going on field trips and being home with them during breaks and summer. Also, we still have our youngest at home. So even most part time jobs wouldn’t allow for all that.Read More

90-Day Weight Loss Challenge Winner
Lost 120 lbs.† in 10 months
1. What was your motivation for joining the 90-Day Challenge?
I use to wake up and still feel just as tired as I did before I went too sleep. Small physical activities drained me to the point that I lost interest in leaving the house because of the amount of effort it took. I knew I didn’t want to live the rest of my life this way so I joined the Challenge to take control of my health. I had struggled with my weight since I was in middle school. Along the way I have tried several different weight loss plans but little to no success. I wanted to prove to myself that I could set a goal and accomplish it.Read More

Super-sized portions are everywhere – at restaurants, schools and in the grocery store aisles. This trend has certainly distorted the way most Americans view “normal” portions and contributed to the obesity epidemic (over two-thirds of the adult population in the U.S. is overweight or obese. scary, right?).
So whether your goal is to lose weight or simply to maintain, it’s important to control portion size and the calories you consume. In a recent study, researchers found a simple way to do just that.Read More

One of the things I love about this business is the fact that no matter where we started or where we currently are in our lives, it is never too late to go after our dreams and grow into the people we want to be – the people we were destined to become.
Who we are as individuals can basically be summed up into 3 main parts- mind, body, and spirit and these three areas can undergo major improvements when we are intentional about working on them.Read More
Osteoporosis and low bone mass are a major health issue for more than 50 million Americans. By 2020, half of all Americans over 50 years are projected to be at risk of osteoporosis-related fractures. Large percentages of Americans fail to meet the recommendations for optimal calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D intake. Emerging science shows that we need more than just calcium to optimize bone health. Learn why calcium, magnesium and vitamin D are required to be strong to the bone!Read More
First of all, we don’t believe the excuse “I don’t have time to exercise”! What that statement is really saying is “I’m not making exercise a priority”. You shouldn’t need to wake up super early (because sleep is very important for both weight loss and recovery), or ignore your other responsibilities in order to make working out a priority, but rather just look to all of the short term and long term benefits for sustained motivation.Read More
A study found in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine found that aerobic exercise at a dose consistent with public health recommendations is an effective treatment for mild to moderate depression.
Ever find it interesting that people who workout on a regular basis don’t seem to complain about being tired, or sluggish, but rather they tend to exude a positive and invigorating energy? Science tells us why!Read More
To reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes (T2D) incorporate both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities into your routine! Aerobic exercise is physical activity that increases your breathing and heart rate- like power walking, jogging and swimming. Try resistance training and yoga as muscle-strengthening and conditioning activities to work your muscles.
A recent Harvard School of Public Health study found that muscle strengthening and conditioning activities are associated with a lower risk of T2D. The Harvard study followed nearly 100,000 women over eight years, and found that women who did more than 150 minutes a week of muscle strengthening or conditioning activity had a 40% lower risk of developing T2D than women who did no muscle work. In addition, women who did at least 150 minutes a week of aerobic exercise and 60 minutes a week of muscle-strengthening were a third as likely to develop T2D as inactive women.Read More
2014 is your year to Be Your Best! Now is the time of year that most people get motivated to start getting healthy, fit, and lose weight. In the beginning of a new routine results typically start to show very quickly, but then comes the dreaded plateau. Don’t be discouraged! It’s natural for your body to get used to your healthier lifestyle. And the good news is that you can avoid plateaus with just a few easy changes.
This morning I went to the gym, as I do most mornings before work, expecting to enter the chaos that typically follows the celebration of each New Year and the resolutions we so often feel inspired to make.
To my surprise the gym was a ghost town, even deserted by the regular crowd usually spotted at this time of morning.
So why is this happening? The answer is simple: people aren’t sticking to their resolutions! But that’s only to be expected when we arbitrarily throw up statements like “I’m going to lose weight” or “I’m going to eat healthier” and then don’t follow through with how we are going to get there. By not taking the proper steps for success we are setting ourselves up for failure.
So what does it take to succeed with our New Year’s resolutions?Read More

“Discipline determines destiny.” Three words that carry a lot of weight and truth in all aspects of a person’s life, including fitness.
