Benefits of fitness on overall health

“A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body a prison.” – Francis Bacon

Like many of you, I feel we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  It’s relatively easy to enjoy the outdoors and be active year-round on the Central Coast.  I have also been lucky enough to work with an active group of people and have many active patients that inspire me to compete and push myself athletically.  

The exquisiteness of equine

Take some time to explore SLO County from the saddle

The world is a beautiful place from the back of a horse. When riding, all troubles go out the window and life is suddenly simple. San Luis Obispo County has a rich and diverse equestrian community. Whatever your discipline, there is something here for you. And while we might speak different “horse languages”, it’s important to realize and remember we share the same love of horses.

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.
