Listen to a great conversation about being an older mom. Maria is so inspiring to listen to because of her journey to become a mom at 50. The process is a true miracle, and happily for Maria and her family, all the pieces fell into place to make it happen.
We talk about her journey, her career as a physician assistant in neurology, and women's health, as well as work-life balance and making health and fitness a priority. And everything in-between that made it possible. We also reflect on the loved ones we have lost and preserving our language and traditions as we raise our children.
Hear from Amy, this year's Fuerte Fitness Holiday Challenge winner, as we reminisce about our adventures in 2023. Road cycling and paddling boarding trips- join us for more in 2024! Come as you are, and perhaps leave a slightly better version of yourself!
Burnout. Who hasn't been there? Today I sit down for a conversation about overtraining with Ben Willis. Ben was a professional soccer player in the USL Championship within the Houston Dynamo organization. He went on to become to assistant goalkeeper coach and strength and conditioning coach at Rio Grande Valley FC. Ben is an ACSM Certified-Exercise Physiologist and Certified Inclusive Fitness Training, with a speciality in working with individuals with disabilities, and has his B.A. in Kinesiology from Gonzaga University.
Ben and I talk about our experiences with burnout and how we overcome it. We will help you identify the signs of overtraining and give you tips for coming back to fitness, perhaps in a different way than before. And importantly, we normalize it as part of the game of fitness. It is nothing to be ashamed of or beat yourself up over. Just like other life challenges, you can embrace the challenge and pass through it.

Sleep. It's one of the key factors that determines how we feel and perform. And let me tell you- and I learned the hard way- I do not skimp on my sleep any more!
In this short episode, I talk about how and why I track my sleep, the function of sleep, and how you can optimize your sleep and feel your best. I leave you with some tips that you can put into action today.
Join me for an exploration of sleep, which I hope inspires you to take on Sober October! If you are entering the days of perimenopause, like I am, you will definitely want to tune in. I definitely want to minimize the number of nights I find myself awake at 3 am, and I have learned what steps to take to so that my body functions how I want it to. You can, too! It may not always be the advice we want to hear (I love a glass of wine with dinner!) but you will thank yourself when you wake up refreshed at the proper time in the morning.
