A CrossFit class at CrossFit Inferno in San Luis Obispo, CA

Taking the Plunge: The Avila Dolphins

By Jamie Relth

From the end of the pier in Avila Beach, the ocean seems like a warm, welcoming place. The smooth glassy water surface reflects a buttery, golden morning sun and the white craggy rock islands hugging the coastline to the south seem like a breadcrumb trail leading to adventure.

Hiker’s high

Pinnacles National Park offers breathtaking glance of nature at its best

Lying on my back, on a sun-warmed rock, at the top of High Peaks, in the heart of Pinnacles National Park (elevation 1,540), I strive not to move a muscle. My breath is imperceptible, my eyes unblinking. 

I’m trying to feel the earth move.

True health care begins with healthy habits

As the baby boomer generation ages, and the hours employees are expected to work increase, we see an increase in the number diagnosed with diseases related to obesity, unhealthy diets, and too many hours of inactivity.  As a result, many in our nation are highly concerned about their health care.

Finding The Natural Alternative

Misconceptions of modern medicine

In the early 80s, I was introduced to a holistic nutritionist that that changed my health dramatically.  I was eager to learn everything I possibly could about herbal and nutritional medicine.  I also wanted to share my knowledge with others so that they could become pro-active in their healthcare.  True health is optimal wellness and vitality, not just “absence of disease”.
