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.

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.’

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”.

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.

54 marathons in 52 weeks

Tony Gaspar of Paso Robles is an inspiration

As someone who has completed a few marathons, I know firsthand how difficult the 26.2 mile distance can be to complete. The mileage takes a toll on your body and becomes a battle of mental toughness as you push yourself to finish the last few miles and receive your finisher’s medal. Motivated by the cheers of the crowd and the congratulatory praises of your friends and family, you feel a sense of pride and accomplishment as you look forward to a couple of weeks of well deserved rest and relaxation.

Ex couch potato turns UltraWoman

True, cardiovascular endurance and overall running economy are very important to my UltraWoman goal. However, building foundational strength now- results in raw power and reduced injury risk so that I will be able to log those big miles later on. Longer, leaner and faster. Long distance and Ultra racing require a strong, whole body in order to sustain the endless hours of repetitive pounding, climbing, descending all without breaking down and losing form. Identifying then addressing weak areas before you go big makes perfect sense.

The Wellness Kitchen and Resource Center

Unlike most aspiring chefs set on making their mark in the restaurant industry, founder of The Wellness Kitchen Nancy Walker took a different culinary path. At Bauman College in Santa Cruz, Nancy laid the foundation for utilizing natural and holistic cooking methods as a means of treatment and healing. Since her graduation in August 2009, Nancy has developed a successful career by making sustainable healthy eat habits available to her patients. Today she specializes in cooking and developing meal plans for cancer, chemotherapy, diabetes, and other patients with other severe illnesses.
