24/7 Fitness Club

This post has been sponsored by 24/7 Fitness Club.

24/7 Fitness Club is located at 121 Pine Glen Road, Riverview. Ray and I have been members there since February 2019, and we have trained at the location when it was under different management. We love the friendliness of the staff and other members.

It can be hard to walk into a gym, even when you are used to training. You can read a post that I wrote just over a year ago here.

This is an interview with owner Jason Gallant. Continue reading “24/7 Fitness Club”

I first met Geoff Vacon of Metabolic Mindset when we were both working at a retail store in the fall of 2018, and I immediately recognized him as “one of my people”.  I found out that he was from Halifax, and living in Moncton while he was taking a course to become a paramedic, and we had a lot of friends in common.

A Pressing Engagement

I have had annual mammograms for about the last 10 years. I started them early because of my mother’s history of breast cancer, and the way it snuck up on all of us when she was in her early 40’s. I will tell the story of that journey another time. Suffice it to say that when my doctor suggested that I start having this procedure, I took it seriously. Continue reading “A Pressing Engagement”
