ELS Boot Camp and ELS Massage & Personal Training Have A New Name!

Hey! So I have an important announcement to make, and it involves the name of the biz, or bizzes, to be exact. Is “bizzes” a word? Oh well, it is now!

Truth be told I always liked the name “The Body Shop,” ...

I was actually looking forward to doing one of my Puzzle workouts today. Oh well. But… Never fear! Just because I can’t train at the studio, or you can’t fit in a workout at a gym, or you’re on the road and don’t h ...

Can You Implement These Simple Diet and Workout Tips?

Hey! How’s your weekend coming?  As of this instant, it is mid-afternoon on a beautiful Sunday and Nolan just woke up from his nap.  I was going to say Nolan was napping and Maren was coloring in her room, but I just heard the tell-tale signs of a 1-year old awakening...crying :) I am currently sitting in my “office” at home, which is really just a desk in the corner of our dining room - I lost my office wh ...
