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).

Four instructors train others at Aikido Central Coast Dojo

Aikido is one of the least known, least understood and most effective martial arts practiced today. A modern interpretation of the much-older Japanese martial art of Aikijutsu, Aikido was developed by the founder of Aikido Morihei Ueshiba in Japan in the decades immediately before and after World War II.

Where to swim on the Central Coast

Swimming provides a fantastic, full-body workout that’s actually fun. There’s something inherently playful about the water, even when adults use it for serious exercise. Unfortunately, swimming season only lasts so long. As soon as summer ends, the demand for refreshing swims in the hot sun comes to an end, and a plethora of pools close down for the fall, winter, and even spring. But what can you do if you want a low impact workout in the water in the off months? Here’s the skinny on where you can dip during the rest of the year:

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.’

Seniors strive for fitness

Age is mind over matter...if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. – Mark Twain

The famous quote above by Mark Twain truly represents the philosophy of the home owners at Traditions at River Oaks, a community of over-55 active seniors.

Since August 2013, a group of more than 30 seniors have met twice a week to lift weights, work on balance, flexibility and just have a good time while getting stronger and fit in the process.

Their ages range from 55 to the spry 90-year-old Bonnie Meyer.

Kayaking along the Central Coast

Let go of stress aboard a kayak

Sure, taking in the beauty of the Pacific Ocean while driving along Hwy 1 or up the 101 is pretty nice, but enjoying the ocean blue aboard a kayak is, well, pretty spectacular.

Dragon boat racing promotes fitness & friendship among cancer survivors

If you are driving past Morro Bay and happen to see the head of a prehistoric monster gliding through the water, do not call your local Scottish anthropologist; boats adorned with the head of a dragon are now a common site on the waters surrounding Morro Rock. The Estero Bay is home to our very own local team of Dragon Boat paddlers, better known as the Central Coast SurviveOars.
