At Journey we are always doing things that other gyms don't do. For example we include nutrition, we track you down when you don't show up and we like to partner with other health professionals to bring you more resources.
We have amazing healthcare providers in our community who work hard every day to positively impact the health of our local residents. We recently had the pleasure of interviewing Janet Farwell who is a Perfusionist. She has been doing her job for over 30 years. In the interview, Janet told us about the machine that she runs and this machine essentially keeps patients alive.
A perfusionist is a healthcare professional who operates the cardiopulmonary bypass machine (heart–lung machine) during cardiac surgery and other surgeries that require cardiopulmonary bypass to manage the patient's physiological status.
We asked Janet her opinions on the problems that we try to solve with diet and exercise and Janet...

Did you know... your skin is the second largest organ in your body?!
Did you also know... your skin is a direct reflection of what is going on inside your body. If you're eating a lot of inflammatory foods, it will show through your skin. Sometimes in the form of acne or breakouts, skin conditions such as psoriasis, rashes and others.
Your body has one way to react to anything thrown at it-- inflammation. When we experience an injury, your body responds with redness, swelling, pain and heat. The skin can be a source or a means of treatment for inflammation.

Here is the moment we've all been waiting for...
My final weigh in.
Four weeks ago, I set somewhat of an ambitious goal..... ok.. it was overly ambitious.
I wanted to drop 20 lbs before I left for my trip to Punta Cana.
With the help of Dr. Michael Cilip of Ageless Integrative Medical Spa, we've come up with a great supplementation and recovery plan that has really aided in my weight loss.
Today is my final weigh in. After week 3, I was only 2 pounds away...
Check out the video above to see if I've reached my goal!
Well, we're getting close to the big trip!
I successfully pulled off a 5 pound weight loss last week, even after a birthday and St. Patty's day celebrations were thrown into the mix.
So far, Dr. Cilips supplement recommendations have been working! I'm not only losing weight, but I'm feeling great.
See how I did at my week 3 weigh in, and how much weight I've got to lose as we head into week 4!

Summer is right around the corner!
Did you know.. summer bodies are made in the winter?
That's right. Summer bodies are made in the winter.
Before summer hits, though, we head out for our annual Journey trip. This year we are heading to Punta Cana!
Now is the time we all start scrambling to do whatever it takes to get those extra winter pounds off.
Travis is on a Journey to lose 20 lbs before the big trip. Do you think he can do it?
Check out how we were able to accurately measure his metabolic rate and determine the best plan to ensure he is success!
We've all experienced aches and pains. It's inevitable when following a consistent fitness regimen.
As we know, sometimes these aches and pains can throw us right off track and stall our progress.
This is especially true if you are suffering from joint pain. Whether it's your shoulder, elbow, or knee, you don't need to suffer any longer.
We sat down with Dr. Michael Cilip, MD, from Ageless Integrative Medical Spa to talk about different resources that are available.
He talked about the 3 different options available for those suffering from joint pain. One procedure in particular uses platelet rich plasma from your own blood. This is also the least expensive, most natural, and the one Dr. Cilip believes to work the best.
Check out what else he had to say about joint pain in the video above!
