Here’s the Secret about Fitness that it’s taken Years to Realize…
Fitness IS about Well-Being. Period.
Fitness as Well-Being makes Life, Living, Loving and Moving BETTER and EASIER.
Fitness and Activity are about doing some sort of full body movement that is CONSISTENT and SUSTAINABLE for YOU.
Finding some sort of movement that you can and are willing to do is THE MOST IMPORTANT. It’s an individual game that we all can WIN at.
Fitness DOES NOT have to hurt. Fitness DOES NOT need to be painful.
When views of fitness get skewed into too hard, too scary, too painful… Then the door just gets shut to movement and overall activity. I have been in this spot pushing myself too far beyond my limits and cracking my whole system with injuries in the process.
In the long run, having a shut door, or closed mind, to Fitness will actually tend to cause MORE PAIN with injuries, low energy, health complications and painful experiences.
Learning How to Move Well for your specific body and needs is the HUGEST component of Fitness. Personalized design and Individualized Programs fill this gap. Whether you create one for yourself, get one from a Coach, or even see a Personal Trainer for One on One sessions doesn’t matter. As long as your personal needs, goals, desires, and movement capacities are being viewed, met, and arced for Progress.
I am opening Lala’s Life Garden Training Studio to help all of my North Coast family (and everyone beyond) to meet these needs. Even if it’s just a chat on the street about what you can personally do to move better and feel better I am open to your questions! Even if my recommendation is to go work at another gym because it’s closer to home, or another trainer because they are more geared toward your goals…
If you start moving and feeling better, it’s still a WIN.

Growing up here, the Winter’s were tough for me with movement and S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder). It was cold, wet, dark, and hard to get outside. I just never knew what to do beyond play sports. I feel that some of my PNW friends up and down the coast may be in this same boat. But now, we have so many resources available to us. So many gyms, so many places to go, so many coaches and trainers that can help us. All we need to do is pick one and go for it.
When does pain, pushing, and intensity lend a hand in fitness? At the Elite level.
It’s important to understand that at the elite level of fitness and after years of training is where we start adding time, volume and increased intensity to our workouts. But for everyone else Well-Being is Movement and Movement is Fitness.
Fitness encompasses EVERYONE no matter what level you are at. We are all athlete’s in our own bodies when it comes to movement, moving and living.
We stand up, we walk, we sit down, we push things away, and we pull things toward us. All very basic actions for a basic person on a regular day. A Fitness focus can help these actions and movements become easier. Making walking up stairs or sand dunes a doable task instead of a breath taking daunting mountain.
Whereever the mountains are in your life, whether it’s Neah-Kah-Nie, Tillamook Head, or even the Astor Column near by. I want you to be able to look at it and say…
“Yes, I can.”
