Exercise for Simcha!


It seems ironic that while preparing for Yom Tov, when we are specifically commanded to be happy, we are in a constant state of stress and anxiety.   Did I get everything needed while shopping?  Did I remember to clean and look everywhere for Chametz?  Did I order enough Matzah?  Is everything ready and prepared for [...]

So, which is it?


As both a wellness coach and personal trainer, one thing I am NOT trying to do is help people achieve perfection in any particular area.  What I am trying to do, is help people make improvements in their lifestyle habits in order to bring about a healthier quality of life. Getting everyone to be an [...]
