Let’s talk passive sweating. Ever heard of it? I didn’t until last year. It’s not the same as active sweating aka sweating during exercise. Sweating during vigorous exercise raises body temperature but actually decreases deep organ blood flow➡️meaning very little detoxification takes places. When you sit quietly in your sauna (or during hot yoga), profound detoxification occurs. Our skin is our largest detoxification eliminator. Passive sweating results in removal of toxic chemicals and heavy metals, both of which cause a number of health problems. If you want to improve your health implement the sauna one or more times a week. ... See MoreSee Less

Overalls...can’t believe I’m wearing them again and that they are making a comeback after 30+ years! ☺️ I love ‘em. Too bad I didn’t keep my Guess overalls from decades ago. 🤷🏻♀️ Anybody else hang onto clothes for years, finally donate them, only to have the clothes you donated comeback in style? I actually have a B.S. in Fashion Merchandising and worked in that industry 13 years so I am well aware of how clothes and trends you thought were dead and buried eventually make a comeback. ...

Stress/harbored emotions kill. When you have chronic disease, pain, tightness or injuries in certain areas it’s often related to something emotionally you are feeling within yourself. In our fast-paced world most of us are too out of touch or lack the awareness to recognize this. The more you address your thought patterns throughout the body the more things will loosen up or heal and the pain will subside. When we get sick or are in pain it’s our bodies way of communicating with us. Many ignore or avoid dealing with long-term internal emotional issues. Our body wants us to look at ourselves to find peace. Not an easy task! If we don’t look at ourselves the chaos within continues. Being positive alone isn’t enough. Looking in the mirror, Awareness & the desire to Change are key. Without change we continue to create an unhealthy lifestyle. Since my teens, I’ve had over a decade of counseling which has helped me cope, look at me, teach me awareness and given me the tools to change...when I was ready! It’s a never-ending journey.

Health is more than just stepping on a treadmill, picking up dumbbells or eating the right foods. Heal your wounds for better health!
I’ve worked with Nicole for 9 months, twice a week in one-on-one sessions. I knew of her from just being a member at Lifetime Fitness, where she was a trainer and taught some classes I took. For several years, I admired her posts on social media, in which she emphasized the importance of proper nutrition as a form of preventative medicine, as well as the power it can have in healing chronic disease and illness…
Nicole Moneer helped me tremendously by advising me on nutrition and workouts. I lost 25 pounds and 4 inches in my waist as a result of her guidance and insight. Before I started working with Nicole, I struggled for more than 10 years to lose weight. I also struggled with heartburn and a variety of other physical ailments. Her guidance on eating real food and taking proper supplementation have cured my heartburn…
My time with Nicole has been above and beyond my expectations. I thought I would sign up with Nicole, she would show me a lot of different work outs, I’d get her opinions on different foods and supplements and that would be it. She taught me way more than I could’ve imagined! Nicole is teaching me different work outs every time we meet. Whether it’s lifting weights or doing Pilates reformer…
I had an unhealthy relationship with food going from one extreme to another, starving and binging. I used to work out just so I can eat whatever I wanted. Eventually, I would get too busy or get tired of working out and eating to my heart’s content would catch up with me. I’d gain weight and be unhappy about how I looked and worked out like crazy (sometimes as much as 2-3 hrs/day) to lose the weight…
