    Stay Fit to Enjoy Your Grandkids – And Let Them Enjoy You

    Why be fit after 50? For millions of people around the world, their No. 1 reason is their grandchildren.

    Being an active grandparent requires physical ability – strength, endurance and flexibility – that you can build in a gym or fitness studio.

    When the grandchild is an infant, you want to get down on the floor – and then back up again. As the kids grow and get heavier, you’ll be picking them up and carrying them around. By the time they can run, they’re going to want Grandma and Grandpa to go outside and play.

    Get them away from screens and engaging in creative play that neither of you will think about as “exercise.”

    Gain confidence with strong legs, back, core, glutes and more. We’re here to help, so come tell us about your special little ones and we’ll get you in shape for fun, healthy activities like…

    • Visiting a playground to swing, climb and help them explore.
    • Hiking in a neighborhood or out of town on a trail. Play “I Spy with My Little Eye” or scavenger hunt games. Look for certain wildlife or birds. More info: The American Hiking Society.
    • Bicycling – As they keep growing, think of the special times you’ll have riding together.
    • Snowshoeing, skiing, snowmobiling – Don’t let winter keep you inside. Bundle up, stay safe, and have fun.
    • Skating – Roller-skating at a rink or on your sidewalk, plus ice skating in the winter.

    Working out – If you’ve walked them to, say, gymnastics practice, sneak in your own workout if possible

  2. A Family That Keeps You Going

    In almost all cases, when a person is looking for a trainer or a training studio they are looking for more than just a place to workout. One of the greatest things that we have at our studio is a family with great camaraderie among our clients.

    Jena Stout is one of our clients who bring energy, passion, and a great commitment to her workouts. The thing we love about her is that she decided to stay long-term with us when she realized how much she enjoyed it here and that we could help her reach her goals.

    “I first came to Your Personal Best in April when we had the Little Black Dress Challenge.  After that I found that I really enjoyed YPB and decided to stay on.”

    Jena not only loves the functional workouts but also the small group that she personal trains with. Which is one of the major reasons why she decided to stay with us.

    She is a great addition to our YPB community and loves training with her group because of the great friends she’s made. When people come in with an open mind and fall in love with us, they are surprised that we are so much more than just about working out.


    Our Functional Aging workouts not only give you great results but also put you in a place where you are with people who are above the age of 50 and with the same mindset as yours. Jena’s results speak for themselves as she’s managed to lose body fat, gain muscle, and also feel great while doing it.

    “Training here at Your Personal Best has helped me to decrease my fat mass and increase my muscle mass.  It’s also helped me with my balance and I feel really good.”

    If you ever feel like you’re lacking motivation, feel out of shape, or don’t know where to start; at YPB, we will help you with all of this.  We’ll group you with 4-8 people, provide you with Functional Aging workouts, and motivate you as we help you reach your goals.

    “I absolutely would recommend Your Personal Best to my family and friends because everybody here treats you very nicely and they know your name when you walk in. You will have fun while you’re working out.”

  3. Want Your Family to Eat Healthy?

    Our loved ones are eating too much junk. And who can blame them? Junk food tastes great.

    The good news is that healthy food also tastes great. Here are simple ways to help your family eat healthier:

    1) Choose Whole Foods

    Processed foods are the biggest problem with our modern diet. Packaged and refined food products are filled with empty calories that quickly lead to weight gain. Unfortunately, processed foods make up a large portion of the diet of many children and adults.

    Offer your family whole foods, rather than packaged ones. Whole foods are foods that are in their natural state. An apple. A piece of sprouted grain bread spread with natural peanut butter. A piece of hormone-free chicken. A bowl of beans. You get the idea.

    2) Add Color

    Adding bright and colorful fruits and veggies to meals will help get diets on the fast track to health. Fresh fruits and veggies are filled with fiber, vitamins and minerals that are essential to good health.

    Make it fun! Serve veggies with salad dressing as a dip. Cut fresh fruit in the colors of the rainbow and place them on a skewer. Serve a color-themed meal – all green, all red or all orange. Use your imagination and you’ll come up with an endless number of ways to make fruits and veggies fun to eat.

    3) Make Smart Substitutions

    Most people love pizza and pasta.  Most kids love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Those truths are not going to change any time soon. Rather than fight your family on their favorites, try making smart substitutions to make their favorites more nutritious.

    • Pizza: Up the nutritional content of your pizza by opting for wheat crust over white, adding veggies to the toppings and sticking with lean meat toppings. You could even make “Pizza Eggs” by adding marinara sauce, cheese and pepperoni to an omelet and avoid the crust altogether.
    • Pasta: Make spaghetti with veggie noodles – see the recipe below!
    • PB&J: A PB&J, made with white bread using sugar-filled peanut butter and corn syrup-filled jelly is fairly void of any real nutritional value. Instead make a PB&J with sprouted grain bread, pure peanut butter (with only peanuts and sea salt), and fruit-only jelly. This will provide real wholesome fuel for your child’s day.

    4) Ban Sugary Drinks

    One of the best things that you can do for your family’s good health is to instill in them a love for water rather than sugary drinks. Soda pop, juices, smoothies, and blended coffee drinks are filled with empty calories that cause weight gain.

    The easiest way to do this is to stock your house with lots of pure, filtered water. Don’t have fruit drinks or soda pop readily available so that they grow accustom to drinking only water.

    While I presented these tips as improvements to be made to your family’s diets, these tips will also do wonders for your diet, too. Practice these tips for 30 days and I guarantee you’ll look and feel better.

    We all want the best for our loved ones. Now how about doing something good for yourself as well? You are the most significant role model on how to live, for better or worse.
