Living and thriving with the big “C”

I grew up in San Luis Obispo. It was an idyllic and active childhood thanks to my amazing parents. I was one of those kids whose parents would literally tell me go outside and play until dinner. This resulted in frequent tromps all around Bishop Peak where I invariably got muddy at the pond. It also included daily trips to the SLO Swim Center for swim practice. The smell of chlorine wafting over the pool on a summer morning makes me want to dive in and crank out a few 1000 meters (time has allowed me to romanticize those killer workouts).

Castle Williams maintains perfect MMA record

The folks at Pit North in Atascadero have a lot to celebrate as they bid farewell to 2013 and welcome the New Year. On Dec. 7 in Las Vegas, Pit North owner and head trainer Castle Williams won his Mixed Martial Arts Fight by Guillotine Submission 2 minutes 22 seconds into the very first round at King of the Cage, Future Legends 19.

Stand up straight!

Proper posture is essential in life and exercise

Posture during exercise will greatly affect not only your endurance, but other aspects of your life as well. Poor posture pits your own muscles and physiology against yourself – you fight your own body! 

On The Trail of the Nine Sisters

Take a hike along Bishop Peak above Cal Poly SLO

Along a panoramic ridgeline that extends from the city of San Luis Obispo to the coast of Morro Bay, rises a rare, nearly straight alignment of rugged hills and craggy peaks collectively known as the Nine Sisters.

Take a tumble on the mat: Paragon Ju Jitsu teaches confidence, self-defense

In the real world, fights almost always end up on the floor, two opponents rolling around trying to get the top position and hold the other down. Ground fighting is awkward and messy, and it doesn’t make for impressively choreographed scenes in ninja flicks, which is part of the reason few kids are interested in learning it and fewer gyms teach the techniques necessary to win a grappling match.
 
The students and teachers at Paragon Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, with locations in San Luis Obispo and Templeton, are the exception.

Health starts here: The Natural Alternative Nutrition Center will get you feeling great

 
To ‘be healthy’ is more than being a specific weight. It’s more than just staving off disease or illness. Healthy is waking up before the morning alarm clock rings and making it through a full work-day, without an afternoon coffee or energy drink. Being healthy is about feeling healthy all day, everyday; to have the energy to do the activities you enjoy.

Take aim and let fly: Archery on the Central Coast

 
There’s something inherently romantic about archery. Perhaps it’s the simplicity, the fact that a stick and some string can send an arrow flying clear across a field. Or maybe it’s the bridge archery creates between modern men and women and our ancient ancestors, people whose lives depended on their ability to shoot accurately. For Riley Royce Smith, a local marksman and archery instructor, the most enjoyable aspect is the Zen-like peace he gets from the repetitive act of mastering a craft.
