Fit Radio Success Story: Justin Q.

By Maire,

My name is Justin D Quackenbush. I’m 36 years old and I live in Manhattan. I am a professional actor, singer and entertainer working mainly in live theatre. In this profession, I have to go where the work is – which means often working regionally, away from my home gym and group fitness etc. I rely on a strong body in my line of work, but like everyone else -the stresses of life have occasionally disrupted my fitness routine. In September of 2017, I was temporarily uprooted from my life in NYC due to some emergency circumstances, and in the process lost my routine and watched the weight creep on. By November 2017, I was weighing in at 210 lbs.

Fit Radio Success Story: LaDonna W.

By Maire,

My name is LaDonna Willis. I turned 40 this year and am a wife, mother, and recently became a “Gramma” to the most beautiful grandson in the whole world! When I’m not working as a rural health clinic administrator, I enjoy family time, reading, wine, the outdoors, and working out. I’ve not always considered myself to be athletic; that mindset began the year I turned 35.

Meet Taryn Burns – Our New Resident Yoga Instructor!

By Maire,

Hi Fit Radio! This is Taryn, your Fit Flow yoga teacher. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, playing sports competitively. I didn’t start practicing yoga consistently until 2014 when I was training for my first half marathon. My coach at the time (Fit Radio’s very own Coach Bianca…more on that another time!) recommended that I take yoga classes a couple times a week to help prevent injury. After witnessing first hand the physical and mental benefits yoga had to offer, I decided I wanted to learn more. I dove into studying the timeless practice, completing 500 hours of yoga teacher training.

Meet SISSFiT Cardio Coaches!

By Maire,

Hey Fit Radio Fam!  We’re sisters, Lauren and Kelly of SISSFiT.  We grew up in Orange County, California and have played sports our entire lives.  We ran Division 1 Track and Field together at UC Irvine and upon graduating realized that we were not ready to give up our love for fitness!  Though we chose different career paths, we were constantly exchanging workouts with one another and when possible, meeting up for a little healthy competition and accountability!  We became the “go-to’s” in our friend circles for workouts and training and figured it was time to get certified and begin building something we were truly passionate about!

31 Lower-Calorie Halloween Candies

By Maire,

Most days of year, we’re all about the quinoa and kale. But then there are those special times—like Halloween—when it’s fine to enjoy a sugary treat (or two). That’s because when you eat right most days, an occasional splurge is no biggie.That’s not to say you should scarf down handfuls of the kiddies’ stash or the office leftovers. Just keep in mind your calorie intake, and limit portions.
