Balancing act on Da Hana Ranch, Hawaii

I just got back from a trip with my client Chris to Waikoloa Resort on the Big Island. The highlight for me was horseback riding on my girlfriend’s ranch. Kiyo and I grew up as ‘trainers’ back when we knew very little about the field of fitness. We taught ‘dance exercise’ classes pre- aerobics era at a studio I owned with  girlfriend. We all had a great time! All of my students became long time friends. So now after 20+ years of training, a degree and a couple of certs, I have always been able to jump on a trip to wherever, do whatever activity I want with my friends, and live life to the fullest! That has always been one of my goals, and it is one I want for everyone I meet. It is SO freeing and exhilarating!

Mahalo Chris and Kiyo, and aloha to you!

Swimmer’s Pike

Swimmer's Pike

Everyone wants a great, new & original abdominal exercise. Here’s one that works more than just abs and it can be done almost anywhere outside as well as in the gym: the Swimmer’s Pike using the Hanger 44 Suspension System. I usually do 2 sets of 20 and may throw in a pushup in between each rep. Fun, fun!
