October Video Tip Clip: Gluteus to the Maximus!
If you’ll forgive us for the camera angle during the first 18 seconds…our newest recruit, the great Brady Oakey, will provide you with a couple quality tips to achieve perfection of your gluteus maximus!
The Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, once said “Change is the only constant in life.” Sometimes that change may be represented by a marriage or the birth of a child. Sometimes it may be the gradual gaining of weight and general deterioration associated with aging, or as is often the case in our profession, change may be seen in fat loss, muscular gains, or enhanced athletic performance!
Speaking of change in our profession, we have a couple of new faces around Kennedy Fitness this month! We’re very pleased to welcome Lisa Russell and Brady Oakey as the newest members of our team. We’ve known Lisa and her husband, Rusty, for the past several years and can confidently say that they’re great people. He’ll even hook you up with the best deal in town on a new Toyota! Lisa is already off to a great start, serving as our new Corporate Wellness Coordinator. Brady recently graduated with a degree in Exercise Physiology from BYU-I…and is poised to make a very real and positive impact on the lives of his personal training clients!
Change can occasionally be bad. Although Hollywood loves to make sequels, they’re almost never as good as the originals. But more often than not, change is good. And in some cases, change can prove to be great! I believe that’s the kind of change we’re looking at here. I believe that the kind of change we’ve seen over the years, here at Kennedy Fitness, is the natural evolution of a good idea…made ever better over the years, thanks to the additional of new staff whose education and imagination prove superior to my own!
If change truly is the only constant in our lives, embrace it, celebrate it, and make sure that it’s a change you can be proud of!
Yours in health,
President & CEO
We think you’re the best! If the feeling is mutual, please tell the world!

Broccoli and Brown Rice Vegan Casserole
1/2 cup (92g) long-grain brown rice
1 cup (133g) sweet potato, cubed
2 cups (182g) broccoli, chopped
12 ounces (340g) extra firm silken tofu (we used Mori Nu)
4 tablespoons (20g) nutritional yeast
1 1/2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a boil, then add the brown rice. Return to boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover. Cook for about 40 minutes. Steam the sweet potato cubes until tender. Let cool slightly.
Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Coat an 8-inch (20cm) square baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
Place the sweet potato cubes and tofu in the bowl of a food processor bowl and puree, scraping down and repeating until smooth. Add the nutritional yeast, tamari and arrowroot and process to mix.
In a large bowl, combine the cooked rice, chopped broccoli and tofu mixture. Stir until well-mixed, then spread in the prepared pan.
Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. The top will be cracked and feel firm when pressed lightly with a fingertip.
Cool and cut into 4 squares.
