Mental Illness Awareness Week

The first week in October is Mental Illness Awareness Week. This October marks a decade that a loved one was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Many of us know someone affected with a serious mental illness. Yet, the stigma still remains, along with the challenges to access our cumbersome and problematic mental health system. Some of us place greater importance on our physical health, especially our physical fitness – at the expense of our mental health.

Let us, take a moment this week to reflect and recognize that Mental Health is a primary concern for all of us. Advocate for yourself, or someone you know who may be suffering – take the important step to seek help or support. Know that you are not alone!

What do you think of when the word fitness comes to mind? What images and thoughts appear? What are you doing in that moment? Is it enjoyable or are you just going through the motions? Beth's philosophy is that fitness should be fun, goal-oriented, realistic and integrated into daily life, regardless of age, gender, health and level. Attitude is everything when it comes to health and fitness. She inspires and motivates every individual to utilize their greatest gifts: their body, heart and mind, by creating a dynamic and functional program that incorporates fitness into everyday life. The days of tedious and monotonous workouts are over! Instead, you get an exhilarating program that suits you. Variety is the spice of life! Participating in a lifelong fitness program that excites you, empowers you, and reflects you and your goals is your ultimate health and fitness success story. The real question is: What do you imagine for yourself now — at whatever stage you may be in your life?
