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 [...]

Critical Updates


Our knowledge or how to stay healthy is constantly evolving.  15 years ago when Baruch came to me concerning eating properly and how to exercise, I advised him that he should only use low-fat products.

Does it really matter?


There has been a lot of literature in the last 14 years about the positive effects of exercise, even in people who are overweight.
