No, we don't mean what fertilizers to use or watering tips!  We mean tips on how to stretch and strengthen your back, glutes and hamstrings to improve flexibility and avoid back pain when gardening!

Inspiration & Perspiration 

I'm inspired!  I don't mean to brag, but I really do feel like everything on the horizon, both personally and professionally, is looking good right now!  Maybe it's just that spring has finally sprung.  Maybe it's because of all the out-of-state trucks I've seen driving through town, delivering hay to our farmers, as we continue to fight our way back to normal after the flooding.  Or maybe it's because I'm watching some of our clients defy the odds, and their age, as they achieve incredible health!

Whatever the reason, I'm feeling like I could conquer the world right now!  I hope you find inspiration in this newsletter.  Gardening really can be enjoyable...especially if you don't hurt your back!  And the Oatmeal Raisin Energy Balls recipe is one that Kristin really does make quite often.  It's not rare that we'll combine these with a simple protein shake and use it as a substitute for a more traditional supper.

And if you just don't find any inspiration in this newsletter, try watching ROCKY!  Especially with the warmer weather, what could be better than getting swept up in the Italian Stallion's pursuit of the heavyweight title...and going out for a run right after the movie?  Whatever you do, eat good then work up a good sweat at the gym, hit the shower and get a quality night of sleep.  If you keep up that pattern for a few days, weeks, and hopefully'll feel like you can conquer the world too! 

Yours in health,

Robert Kennedy
