The Best Machine Invented.

The Best Machine invented according to Jon Kalnas, the Former 3x All American Monmouth University  Track Alum is the Human Body. This is Jon’s philosophy towards personal and athletic training. Jon is the owner of Strength Athletes and co -owner of Critical Mass. Jon trains my son Thomas along with several of his special needs buddies.

Jon and The Guys!

Jon and The Guys!

I know Jon has a passion for health and fitness. He is an amazing athlete himself. At the age of 36, Jon was training for the Olympic Trials as a shot putter. Jon has been taking the pharmaceutical grade supplements that I recommend. He knows how important it is for your cells to be nourished on an Optimal Level. He knows you can’t possibly get the nourishment you need from your food. (As an athlete it is so important to take a pharmaceutical supplement so you know you aren’t going to flunk a drug test.) So, take the best supplements you can and allow your cells to decide what they need because you are the owner of the best machine ever invented…The Human Body!

Do you crave Oreo cookies?

I am with my friend Karin who just finished up the 28 day Fit and Fabulous Program! We are starting the 7 day October program Monday. Contact me if you are local and would like to start with us on Monday. We have 2 kits available!

Here is a quick video, Karin talks about getting off the sugar! Click here for more details.



Everyone of my workouts include some form of squats. Squats are a wonderful functional exercise. They strengthen your glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps. Once you are able to perform a basic squat, you can start adding weights for even more benefit!

Sometimes it is good to go back to the basics.

Do your squat to a chair or bench.

  • Feet wide
  • Lead with your bottom
  • Butt back and down ,tap the chair with your bottom come back up
  • Chest up


Include squats into your workout!

Consignment Shopping

I had my first consignment shopping experience last week. I don’t buy many clothes in general. I have been resistant to consignment shopping because I didn’t want to be wearing someone else clothes. What if that person was cranky or nasty? Bad karma.

I read a blog post of Sarah Jane Adams who found a beautiful piece of jewelry in a pocket of a jacket that she bought at a consignment shop. She felt it was meant to be given to her by a wonderful person. I decided I was looking at this all wrong.I also like the idea of recycling.

My very good friend and clothing architect Wendy Cettina came with me to Greene Street in Red Bank NJ. Wendy is my image and fashion consultant and I couldn’t have done it without her. She shops like a pro. She goes through the racks quickly and picks out what she thinks will work. Wendy gives excellent honest feedback.

I bought this great cotton sweater jacket. I felt so put together today. I will post about my New favorite pants soon:) Thank goodness, Fitness is my fashion statement!


You always look classy with a Golden Retriever by your side. Thanks George the Dog!

Do you shop consignment?  I would love to hear from you!



I couldn’t do this 20 years ago.


I was a  runner 20 years ago. Pretty much on my way out. I had a strong lower body and a weak upper body.

Today at 62, I can do this.

It is possible for you too! You can start by doing push ups off the wall and then try off the counter and slowly make your way to the floor.

I don’t like them off the knees.

Here are the cues for a great push up.

  • Get into position.
  • Wrist lined up with your arm pits.
  • Back Flat
  • Squeeze your glutes and your quadriceps.
  • Suck in your belly button.

You will do a really strong push up. Push ups are great for your arms, chest and core! You can do them anytime and anywhere! There are so many fun and challenging variations if you get bored with the basics! For another post:)

Practice your Push ups!



My Pants Fit!

It is a rainy Friday September morning. I went into my closet and tried on a pair of jeans that I almost gave away last year because they were getting so tight especially around the middle! Is that an issue for you? It doesn’t have to be.

I am sharing this with you because I have a fabulous program that is easy doable and works!!! Eat Fat to lose Fat.

I have a 7 day program or a 28 day program. Here is the link.!

Become a part of my Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional community. You will be so glad you did.

Healthy, Vibrant, Fit.

A 68 year old Track Cyclist!

We were at the USA Cycling Master’s Track National Championships in Indianapolis this summer. Women are in the minority. Obviously, in the Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional category!

I reached out to Jo Johnson. Jo is a Multi time National Champion! She is 68 and began cycling in her early 50’s! She loves track racing. “Riding on banked tracks on a bike with NO Brakes is the thrill of track.” She takes her cycling very seriously and works with Coach Kim Geist. Jo has continued to improve each year and just LOVES IT! This year she has set new PR’s in all track events. Quite an accomplishment.

Bike with no brakes

Nutrition is very important to Jo’s success. She is focused on keeping her blood sugar balanced. So important for all of us! It is the sweet spot we need to stay in!

stronger faster

“Every year gets better and better!”

Keep it going Jo Johnson!
