Yellowstone's Open! The WEST won. The floods were tough yes, but Montana folk are tougher.  I honestly can't wait to return to Chico Hot Springs Resort & Day Spa in Pray Montana!  I’d kept owner Colin Kurth Davis’ card that I took off the counter when we checked out back in August 2019. I always meant to call or write him about the magic of his place. I decided to give  him a call this week to ask how things were going out there and if the resort was affected by the floods and could I help in any way.  Boy was he thrilled I called, because yes the floods happened and...

Could a Trainer Be The Difference Between Life & Death? show art Could a Trainer Be The Difference Between Life & Death?

The Debbie Nigro Show

Could a personal trainer be the difference between life and death?  Well If you read the recent study results which said being able to stand on one leg for 10 seconds is tied to whether you’ll live another decade - then possibly yes. Here’s my opinion after exploring one session with kickass superstar HEALTHYFIT personal trainer Cristina Telese. We humans need other humans to push us to accomplish things we can’t seem to on our own. It’s easy to ‘go exercise’ it’s harder to spend that same time really maximizing the effort to get better results out of why the heck we’re...

Great upbeat podcast converation with Dawn who I always stop and help when she asks -  about helping raise funds to develop drugs like chemotherapy for 'kids bodies'.  Right now most kids with pediatreic cancer are getting drugs created for adults for their small bodies and most have problems later in life as a result of that soon to be avoidable set of circimstances.
