The Rules Change


As time passes, and/or with neglect, the body changes. Metabolism slows, muscle tone decreases, range of motion is stiffer. But, these changes

can be controlled.


“The 5 to Strive” is the foundation & never changes.

Exercise, Nutrition, Sleep, Mental Relaxation, Body Care. 

The rules of each aspect does change though.


Exercise rule changes:

Workout readiness & recovery – pre & post workout routines

Nutritional rule changes:

Add & Subtract – more veggies & less processed

Sleep rule changes:

Position – proper position reduces aches

Mental relaxation rule changes:

Break – scheduled time of day, week, month, year to disconnect

Body care rule changes:

Maintenance – for optimal performance & longevity


To enhance health, a consistent effort and a willingness to adapt

is crucial. Don’t continue the same things & expect a different result.


Saying “just getting old” justifies negative changes & takes what you can control & change out of your own power.


The question is not if changes will occur with age & neglect.

The question is, are you willing to change what you do & how you do it to live at your best?

Treating Sciatica

Warning: Traffic Drivers

Here on Oahu traffic is a part of daily life. Whether it's a 30 minute upwards to an hour or hour and a half, it's adding sitting time to your day!
Sciatica is a common condition that affects many that have to sit in traffic on top of sitting at work! It is recognized as a pain that begins in the buttocks area, often on one side, that radiates down into the glute (buttocks) and down the back of the leg. It's literally a "pain in the butt"!

Pain Proof your Commute

Here on Oahu traffic is unfortunately inevitable! Here are tips to consider to prevent or reduce back pain from your driving:


1. Empty back pocket - Mostly for men; remove wallet from back pocket to avoid tilting hips and straining lower back.


2. Posture in - Try to avoid bending from the spine when getting into your vehicle.


3. Adjust seat back angle - Set angle at a comfortable position where the ears, shoulders, and hips are in alignment.
