There hasn't been a time when being healthy has not been a part of my paradigm. One of my earliest memories as a kid is going to a funeral parlor with my grandmother to view the body of a friend. The adults would converse about the cause of death - heart attack, sugar (diabetes), cancer, liver disease (alcoholism), on and on.
My next memory is of myself standing in an open field, between two buildings where my friends and I played tag, kickball, softball, declaring that I will always work at being healthy and seeking peace. I have kept both promises
Being at peace with myself and others was not a difficult task. Setting boundaries and developing my own identity with morals and values was key to that. In my late teens, I started shopping at the local health food store - New Leaf. Trying foods, supplements and herbs I researched and read about. Playing organized recreational sports, exercising at gyms and community centers, jogging with friends has been steady. Practicing peace, deliberately and consistently eating quality foods and in the right quantity, and keeping it moving lead me to my practice - LEAP Living (Lifestyle Enrichment through Active Participation).

"In working with LEAP Living, I have strengthened my body substantially. Diane (she does an online wellness coach program) and was able to modify exercises to my specific needs & in doing so I have seen great gains in all areas from my arms, legs and core to my general fitness level."
"Diane performed a miracle for me. I had been experiencing chronic neck and shoulder pain for a couple of months. During that time, I had seen a chiropractor twice and a massage therapist once, with no improvement. Then, during one of my classes with Diane, we focused on stretching for almost the entire session. That afternoon, my neck still hurt, but it felt different. The next day, the pain was gone; no neck pain and no shoulder pain! I remained pain free for two weeks, until I did something that stressed my body (trying to hold back an overly enthusiastic dog on a leash). Even then, after one online wellness coach session) with Diane, I felt good again."
"Ever been with a great group of people you really connect with, people who really put a smile on your face, positive people, people who take really care of themselves? I know where you can meet them three days a week for an hour and it will change your life. I know it changed mine! Group fitness training is a blast."
