THANKSGIVING “food” for thought…………………... If you woke up with more health then illness you are more blessed the million who will not survive the week. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation you are ahead of 500 million people in the world. If you can attend any church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are more blessed then 3 billion people in the world. If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer then 75% in this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a jar someplace...

Don’t Wait, Battle the Bulge Now!!

»Posted by on Nov 30, 2012 in Exercise, Health, Lifestyle & Nutrition Counseling, Personal Training, Uncategorized, Weight Loss | Comments Off on Don’t Wait, Battle the Bulge Now!!

We all get so much busier this time of year that we let our exercise routine fall off our schedules. It is so important to keep exercising during this crazy time of extra eating, tempting desserts, lounging around with family, dining out, and drinking alcoholic beverages. Just make the decision to exercise and stick to it. Put it on your schedule. You’ll can feel so much better, be less stressed and get through the holidays feeling happy and blessed! It doesn’t have to be a major decision or a huge commitment. I made the choice to exercise at least 30 minutes each day by walking, lifting weights, or both. Anything that will get my heart rate and burn calories and stress. It doesn’t have to be 30 minutes at one time. You can do 10 minute bursts 3...

Computerized Patient Records

»Posted by on Apr 3, 2012 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Computerized Patient Records

In compliance with the new Health Care Law we are switching our records to an electronic “paperless” format.  This is the biggest change in our office proceedures since we started using computers.  Unfortunately we can expect some “bugs”.   I am asking ALL of my patients to give me feedbak on postive or negative changes they notice.  As we gain more experience with our new system,  I’m sure that we will be able to improve your overall patient experience in our office.   Once again. I really want to know what you think. You can call the office, talk to me directly or post on our Facebook page. Yours in Health Larry Mikkelson

5-minute Break

»Posted by on Jan 16, 2012 in Exercise, Health, Personal Training, Uncategorized, Weight Loss | Comments Off on 5-minute Break

You burn a meaningful amount of calories by taking several 5 minute breaks throughout the day.  During a minute of exercise you will burn between 6-10 calories depending on your body type.  So consider that by even taking the minimum of 6 calories for 5 minutes is 30 calories and by doing this three times per day you c0uld burn 90 calories and every day each week would mean 630 calories! If you aren’t all about the numbers there are many other benefits to getting bursts of exercise in throughout your day.   It helps relieve stress and clear the mind in order to focus on the task at hand.  It naturally (without sugar or caffeine) helps boost your mood and/or energy level.   There is “magic” happening inside your body when you exercise.  You...

Dear Patients and Friends, We are inviting you to help us help the community this holiday season.
