Yesterday, October 31, 2019 and as most of you know Halloween was a fun day for everyone at Husky Park. The players numbering close to 65 of them, have been working hard at conditioning and baseball skills 4 days a week with me and first year Head Coach Brian Barden. It’s a grind from August to tryouts in February and with the break in the weather and feel of Autumn in the air, we decided to give them a break from the normal Continue reading “Yesterday I sat down with Brian Barden, Head Coach for Horizon Baseball”
During my 20 years of directing FITLIFE, I have continually thought about ways to improve our services and facilities and more recently how to help our members achieve our vision for each of them to “Live. All In.” When thinking of that phrase, it begs the question, are we providing our members the training, motivation, information and guidance that they need to succeed in their ability to fulfill this motto. Each person’s individual plan varies but the cornerstones remain the same. From my perspective, our staff has the educational background, interest, commitment and the personal drive to guide our members toward this objective. I hope you all feel the same way and if you Continue reading “FITLIFE OWNER JOHN NEEL SHARES HIS THOUGHTS ON LIVE. ALL IN.”

Today while playing golf in the Arizona sun I had the opportunity to catch up with an old friend, Craig Alderson. I met Craig in 2009 when he became an intern with us that allowed him to complete his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Wellness from Arizona State University. Craig was an instant hit with both clients Continue reading “TODAY I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT WITH AN OLD FRIEND, CRAIG ALDERSON.”
Today I spent some time with an outstanding high school athlete, volleyball player Lanie Wagner of Xavier College Prepatory. Lanie started working with us at FITLIFE Health Systems in our Functional Training Program in December of 2015 and has continued to train in our P.A.S.S.S program when her schedule allows. Volleyball players, like most high school athletes, have very little down time due to the commitment of playing both high school and club. The demand on their bodies is great. In order to keep playing at a high level, taking care of their bodies is a must.
Today a very special client came in for a workout and as always worked hard, smiled and talked sports. Alec Souder has been coming into Fitlife for the last 5 years and has won the affection of staff and members alike. His parent, Anne and Jay, along with his grandfather Dick are all members here and have been some Fitlife Health Systems biggest supporters. We are going to return the favor by getting involved with the Fragile X Foundation. Continue reading “Fitlife visits with long time client Alec Souder.”
Today I sat down with one of our outstanding high school student athletes, Notre Dame Prep senior volleyball player, Nicole Shuhandler. Having my job is great because of the people I get to meet and work with every day. I really enjoy being around athletes of all ages but the high school ones are special as I get to impact their success and help them with any set backs. This one has more success to come! Continue reading “FITLIFE spends some time with High School Volleyball player Nicole Shuhandler”
Today I spent some time with a truly remarkable woman, FITLIFE client Joanne Young. Joanne walked into our first office on 85th Way and Royal Palm on April 4th, 1998 and has been a staple here ever since! What? That’s an incredible commitment for anyone and believe me her attitude, energy and enthusiasm are contagious and inspire both staff and clients alike. Helping her stay in amazing shape over the years has been incredibly rewarding for myself and my staff. Continue reading “FITLIFE visits with long time client, Joanne Young”
