~by Sheila Garcia I come from a poor background. I was raised in a tiny two-bedroom apartment with eight people. And our pantries weren’t full – not even with the ‘staples’. So when we had a plate of food put in front of us, we were expected to eat everything on it, even if we…READ MORE

~By Sheila Garcia Studies suggest perhaps not! It sure is fun to dip those (organic and whole-food) cookies, though, right?? Depending on who you ask, a gallon of milk a day will either turn you into a muscle-bound machine or make you fat along with having some serious sinus congestion and acne. There’s a lot…READ MORE

~by Sheila Garcia For some time now, companies have been adding dyes to a slew of products including food, candies, drinks, toothpastes and shampoos. They do it because these dyes are cheaper, more stable and brighter than most natural colorings. But how safe are these chemicals? Could they be putting your family at risk? Red food coloring…READ MORE

~by Sheila Garcia What is chiropractic? And is it for you? And how does it compare to doctor care? The word “chiropractic” comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (action), and simply means “done by hand.” Note that the word “chiropractic,” while a bit awkward, is the actual name of the profession. A…READ MORE

~By Sheila Garcia For some of us, digestive discomfort has become a fact of life. We complain about everyday conditions like occasional gas, bloating and irregularity, and we just assume it’s something we can’t escape. Common digestive problems include heartburn/GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Symptoms may include…READ MORE
“People might call me crazy, but my favorite part about Legacy Fitness is actually the people. I love the camaraderie and friendships that I’ve found there. I started Legacy in August 2012 to prepare for Tough Mudder-Austin and continue to come because I want to stay feeling good; especially since turning 40 this year.
Legacy has not only made me feel good and in shape – the biggest difference for me has been my mental strength.”
“My overall health has improved greatly because of Legacy Fitness. It’s nice not to feel sluggish during the day anymore. I’ve witnessed a loss of body fat and an increase in energy. I’ve also found that making smarter food decisions has become a lot easier.
The accountability makes me get out of bed at 5am. Getting my work out in that early in the day is great because my daughter is still asleep, so it doesn’t take away from my time with her and I probably wouldn’t make it to the gym after work otherwise.
Some people say that they couldn’t get up that early and are proud of my dedication to take care of myself. My family can see how much happier I am because of the Legacy Fitness and how much better I look and feel.”
“Legacy Fitness has been a great change in my life. My wife loves it since my alcohol consumption has decreased tremendously. I’m more cognizant of what I’m eating and drinking as a result of joining.
I have always neglected working out my legs. After joining Legacy, I’ve noticed an increase in strength in my legs, specifically my quads. As a result, I have also noticed a considerable decrease in pain in my right knee. I will never forget the 400-squats… as a warm-up!!
Jan is a great instructor who keeps the class motivated and is willing to alternate exercises if you can’t perform them normally. I keep coming back for more because of the built-in health benefit. I’ve lost weight and leaned up and don’t want to lose what I’ve achieved so far. “
