My Story

I have a long history with food, activity and inactivity. But I will save that story for another time. My husband and I met over coffee and downhill skiing. We shared a love for moving and being outside. We enjoyed eating good food and he has always been by my side when I wanted to push the limits of nutrition. When we became parents, our very active and healthy lives were challenged by time, scheduling, toddler meltdowns, puppy training, flourishing careers and everything in-between. It’s a very typical phase families go through where one of two things happen: 1) you either get caught up in the race of life and forget to make health and fitness a priority or you 2) do whatever possible to incorporate moving, and eating healthy, and playing into your ‘new’ lives.

We chose option #2. And that’s what this blog, our social media presence, our programs and products are ALL about! I hope that we can inspire you, motivate you and help you and your family move often, eat real food and play outside!

Meet the Family

I feel so darn lucky to get my daily inspiration to do what I do from the people I love most. I feel supported, and motivated to grow, work hard and push the boundaries of my health, fitness and dreams. And the material I get from our family is bar-none!
