The most unique workout… Barre none

Location, location, location. Apparently it makes as much of a difference in a workout routine as it does in real estate. Perhaps this is because not everyone is inspired to exercise at the sight of an industrial warehouse gym or a room full of hulking workout equipment. Some of us find motivation in the finer details. And for this set, Assets BarreFitness™ has you at ‘hello.’

Take an Outback trail ride, Central Coast style

The natural beauty of the Central Coast often inspires visitors and locals alike to explore their surroundings in many ways. Hiking, cycling, walking and running are all great ways to get out and see what the Central Coast has to offer. Horseback riding is another way to hit the trail and Outback Trail Rides offers rides for anyone interested in seeing the area from the back of a horse.

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.

Try a healthy beet salad

Candy striped chioga beets are an excellent source of potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, vitamin A, B and C – they also help purify the blood and prevent some cancers. Eating them raw gives them great texture when sliced thin and tossed with Central Coast Creamery’s Goat Gouda and Kumquats and Basil. This is a beautiful spring salad and a little goes a long way; it would also be a great side to roasted chicken.

No time to slow down

Lloyd Miller keeps active and fit well into his 80s

Getting older is all about taking it easy, relaxing and slowing down – right? For some, this may be true, but not for Lloyd Miller – an active 87-year-old whose regular exercise routine keeps him fit, active, healthy and happy.

Team Medicare

During most of the week and on Saturdays, this group rides as  the Slabtown Rollers. This dedicated bunch of cyclists help put on the annual Central Coast Classic and is a blue ribbon winner in the annual Pinedorado Parade. They also recently were instrumental in getting a bike rack in front of Cambria’s Chamber of Commerce and repairing the flagpole. But on Fridays,  the group rides as Team Medicare. The Friday ride starts and ends at the Cambria Roasting Co. next to the Chamber.

Want more pain in life? Keep sitting down

As working members of the twenty first century, we have worked hard to make technologically advancements and make our society the best it can be.  We have gotten so smart that we no longer need much physical action to accomplish our goals or work projects. In fact, aside from having to get up to go to the bathroom, we don’t need to do much aside from the sitting position with our bodies; other machines do our work for us.
