Boulder is so fit that the they have won THE Fittest city in the Country since 2008! Yes Boulderites are fit! I have done my own informal poll around town asking women what exercise they do to get in such phenomenal shape. Hands down the #1 exercise these ladies tell me is swimming.

As May quickly approaches we are reminded that pool safety is of the utmost concerns for anyone who owns a swimming pool or plans on being in one this summer. With the news out last week of a sweet 7 year old boy who died from electrocution in a swimming pool from a faulty wire in the pool lighting that was not grounded, we are are again reminded that water safety is not only about learning to swim and being safe around water. It is important that if you own a swimming pool or have one at your rental that you must maintain the swimming pool by certified trades every year to make sure that everything is in working order and that the pool is up to code. Last year a new law came into effect that every pool must have compliant drain covers to prevent drain entrapment. Drain entrapment is a frequent result of a swimmer’s body, hair, limbs or clothing becoming entangled in a faulty or flat drain or grate many times causing drowning.
Let's be safe so we can look forward to a fabulous summer in the water!
Happy Earth Day! If you are not planning on planting a tree today or starting a new composter, perhaps you can start with your everyday cleaners that use only sustainable ingredients and reduce the harmful chemicals that we are adding to the environment. From soaps, diapers, face creams to toilet paper, these earth friendly companies are some of the greenest we have found in 2014.
Wellness Rooms. Have you heard of them? If not, you will. The term wellness rooms is something used more in Europe but is making it's way to the states. The wellness room is basically an amped up home gym but with all the latest accoutrements one would find in a high end spa. From saunas to custom swim spas, wellness spas are becoming a way of life in our society as we focus on our overall health. The focus on these room are for rest and relaxation but is often paired with the workout room. Bringing these luxuries into private homes are helping clients make it easier to get their recovery time in the privacy of their home and on their own schedule. Having all the equipment in the clients own residence, the clients can enjoy the luxury of taking a dip in the hot tub or swim in the pool without worrying if there will be a lane open at the pool or if the gym is open on holidays.
