If you ever needed a reason to hit the gym with one of our trainer’s the below article says it all!
“Being unfit on a treadmill or in an exercise stress test has a worse prognosis, as far as death, than being hypertensive, being diabetic or being a current smoker. We’ve never seen something as pronounced as this and as objective as this.”

Live Light Live Right Warrior Basketball Team traveled to the Barley’s Center to see The Nets crush the Denver Nuggets 116-111! With Coach Martin leading the way via subway, the kids and some of their parents cozied up in their seats to watch the exciting teams duke it out on the court. “What an amazing night we had! All of the training our team has done over the last couple months came to life seeing these professional athletes doing the same drills and lay-ups we do during our practices. “The kids had a great time and it was great seeing them enjoy themselves,” said Coach Martin. As the night began to wind down, the kids were given Nets t-shirts, towels and bobble head player dolls by The Nets Organization! Everyone enjoyed being a part of a great night! “I would most definitely recommend the Live Light Live Right Program to any parent whose child is struggling with their weight. Especially to join the Warrior Basketball team!” said Kamilla, mother of Christian, age 10.
Live Light Live Right Thanks, The Nets Organization for their generous donation.

The workshops were held August 22nd through August 26th, 2016. Each day we were provided with the different curriculum to help our children learn more about the slow food concept ‘Food that is Good, Clean, and Fair for All’.
Did you know that one minute of intense exercise is comparable in its physiological effects to forty-five minutes of moderate exercise? It’s true, according to findings from a study done on interval training at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.1 The research was the subject of review in a recent New York Times article.2 For details about the study, click here.
The findings are interesting and beneficial to those who don’t have 45 minutes or an hour of time per day to dedicate to exercise. The research suggests that one can reap benefits from just a single minute of arduous exercise. Thus, any exercise, even short bouts of it, is beneficial to health and, thus, recommended. Live Light Live Right encourages participants to exercise and provides a variety of supervised exercise programs designed to meet the different needs of program participants. To learn more about scheduled exercise classes, be sure to check out the Calendar of events.
