Get in a great workout, enjoy some celebratory sips and support a great cause. Learn about a local group’s monthly event and see how you can get involved in the next one!

Sarah Buckley, the founder of Persist Fitness, teamed up with Karrikin via their Karrikin Cares program to offer Blood, Sweat, and Cheers, a once-a-month class that caters to all fitness levels. 

This community class meets up on the last Sunday of each month at Karriskin Spirits at 10:30 am. 

“The class is 45 minutes long, and with both strength and cardio elements,” explains Buckley. “Tickets are $15 a class and you get a workout and a Karrikin Signature Cocktail or sparkling beverage, and all proceeds are donated to St. Jude’s Cincinnati Walk/Run, the Southwest Ohio fundraising arm of the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital Foundation.”

When asked what inspired this collaboration, Buckley says that while Blood, Sweat, and Cheers has been going on for about 6 months now, both organizations were looking for a way to give back to the Cincinnati community. Buckely herself has experience in partnering with nonprofits and was approached by the St. Jude’s Cincinnati Walk/Run committee with the idea to make the classes an opportunity to raise money and awareness for the Cincinnati St. Jude’s Walk/Run seemed like the most natural fit.

Throughout the year, Blood, Sweat, and Cheers will continue to meet on the last Sunday of every month at 10:30 am. 

This year’s Cincinnati St. Jude Walk/Run is scheduled for September 26, and Blood, Sweat, and Cheers will be raising funds for the walk until then. 

“This family-friendly event raises funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Hospital, where families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live,” says Buckley. “While St. Jude might not be in our backyard, its research, discoveries, and families are. St. Jude freely shares the unwavering discoveries it makes, so every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.”

Buckley says she’s open to collaborating with other nonprofits in the community to replicate events similar to Blood, Sweat, and Cheers. “If you are looking for a turn-key fundraiser for your favorite local nonprofit, let’s talk,” she says.

Lift yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually this year with a new retreat in the hills of Hebron, Kentucky.

One of the most popular resolutions for the new decade is to be more connected to ourselves, to be more grateful, intentional, and passionate about who and what we encounter in our everyday lives. 

The Salt of the Earth Retreats is here to help you achieve that resolution surround yourself with the inspired, the passionate, the motivated, the grateful, and the open-minded in a one-day spa-inspired health and wellness retreat.

Nicole Kitchen, Founder and Owner of The Salt of the Earth Retreats, says she was inspired to launch this new venture following prayer, personal growth, professional growth, and the journey she’s taken along the way. 

“My inspiration really began a long time ago,” she explains. “I’ve always been drawn to people and wanted to help them feel great about themselves in a really healthy way spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. I started working when I was 16 because I wanted to create an impact in the big, beautiful world. I found through working at Verizon Wireless from ages 16-22 the impact I was making on individuals lives was selling them devices that could ultimately save their life.”

While doing this work, Kitchen also found that she could carry on conversations with people who wanted her to listen. “People really needed someone to hear them,” she says. “I felt like they were really living unconsciously and craving spiritual, mental, and social connection.”

Her journey then included sales with Mary Kay and eventually to NCK Universal Retreats. “It was the birth of an environment where anyone could emerge themselves in a day long, spa-inspired retreat with an amazing course in living your best, authentic life,” she says. 

From 2017 through 2019 Kitchen hosted 5 retreats, but more recently discovered that she wanted to take her offerings to a much higher platform. 

“With my experience in business and enriching the lives of individuals, I knew that I was onto something huge,” she says. “And if I can enrich individuals’ lives on a grander scale, how would I do it? I went back to the drawing board, and through prayer and meditation I came up with a name: The Salt of the Earth Retreats, and decided it was time to officially brand my retreats and put it out publicly in a professional way.”

The retreats from The Salt of the Earth Retreats are a tailored, day-long spa-inspired experience that incorporates all things health and wellness, aiming to help participants be lifted to a higher elevation mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially. 

“During the retreat you will start to see an abundance of all that you can manifest in your own life,” says Kitchen. “All the gifts that were planted in your and the seeds of greatness that God has instilled in each and every person – that is what I am aiming to bring out in my guests.”

Kitchen says that once she can get guests to understand what they are capable of doing, I want to help them gain the momentum to continue to move forward. 

“Our retreats create a positive impact that lasts in the lives of our guests,” she says. “It’s all about creating an experience that will change the trajectory of our guests’ lives. IT’s my heart’s desire to help catapult individuals’ lives and help create the awareness of where they are now and who they desire to become at this stage in their life. Let’s face it, we all grow and change throughout our journey, I just don’t believe that there are people taking the time to help individuals on this level.”

Not only are guests able to interact with the best of the best in the industry in regards to yoga, meditation, wellness, nutrition, physical activity, mental and spiritual growth, but they are also pampered with goodies to use throughout the retreat as well as massages, journaling, and a spa-inspired vegan menu to help nourish the body while relaxing in the hills of Hebron, Kentucky. 

Kitchen says that The Salt of the Earth Retreats is unlike anything else in the area – making it unique in its own design and right. 

“My retreats are created with heart, love, and the inspiration behind it is a God-given gift,” says Kitchen. “When you walk into the retreat you can feel the energy, you feel the ambience and the love lifting you up into a space created for you to peel back the layers of life and begin to emerge into your authentic self, making it your own experience and your very own retreat.”

The Salt of the Earth Retreats will host a retreat on April 25 and again on September 26 in Hebron, Kentucky. The retreat will be held from 10am to 5 pm with wine and hors d’oeuvres from 5pm-9pm. There is also a retreat in Costa Rica from November 14-20 at The Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, a collaboration between The Salt of the Earth Retreats and The Connection Project.

To learn more about The Salt of the Earth Retreats, check them out on Facebook and Instagram. The website is currently under construction but Kitchen can be reached at thesaltoftheearthretreats@gmail.com or by calling 513-886-0018.

See how a former P&G’er recently ventured out on his own to launch a company that the keto community says is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

William Schumacher, a former brand manager at Procter & Gamble, recently decided to venture out on his own. He partnered with Blue Oven Bakery to launch Uprising Food, a company that offers the Keto Kube, a keto bread. 

The trend of ketogenic diets doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon and Schumacher saw it as an opportunity to serve those who follow the diet, in which consumers eat a low amount of carbs and foods high in fats so they burn fat rather than carbohydrates. 

Because the goal of the diet is to consume a lower amount of carbs, that means many of those who follow the keto diet are unable to eat bread. However, Uprising Food and its Keto Kube are changing that. 

“Uprising is a brand who is waging war against poor gut health,” says Schumacher. “We aim to make a dent in the fiber gap affecting 95% of Americans. It’s time to get folks some digestive wins and start turning the tide in favor of our good gut bugs. Our weapon of choice, arguably the world’s best tasting keto bread and possibly the healthiest loaf on the planet.”

Schumacher says that their bread isn’t appealing to just those who follow a keto diet. “The Keto Kube also works for those who want to slim down by avoiding wheat-based loaves, which typically contain refined flour that can cause blood sugar to spike,” he explains. “The Keto Kube is also gluten-free, which can attract people who avoid wheat because of medical conditions.”

Schumacher’s passion for launching something like Uprising Food came from his own passion for fitness. He says he baked more than 200 loaves of keto bread as he experimented with recipes to find what would work for him and the brand he wanted to launch. 

That’s when he got in contact with Mark Frommeyer of Blue Over to help develop the winning recipe, which includes baking powder rather than yeast and has other natural ingredients including egg whites, psyllium husk, flax, apple cider vinegar, salt, and water. 

“The bread produces 160 calories per slice, 6 grams of protein, and 11 grams of fat,” he says. “The loaf is 4 inches tall by 4 inches wide and 4 inches deep. That yields eight slices, or 1.25 pounds of bread.”

In addition to its loaf, Uprising Food is in the middle of launching a big push for The “Toast” Cleanse, a 3-day gut reset challenge using the Keto Kube. 

Uprising Food officially launched on January 4, 2020 after raising $250,000 from investors. A four-loaf package is $48.

Read about a local doctor opened a medical cannabis clinic to provide compassionate, expert care in the field of cannabinoid medicine.

Dr. James Weeks is a firm believer in the power of cannabis as medicine. That’s why he opened One Heart Medical, a locally owned medical cannabis clinic that provides compassionate, expert care in the field of cannabinoid medicine. 

“We provide access to the medical cannabis card, detailed education on all aspects of cannabis, as well as provide follow up care as needed,” explains Weeks. 

The main goal behind this alternative medical practice is to help decrease the stigmata that is associated with cannabis while also improving the quality of life for its patients. 

Weeks himself has extensive experience in the medical field. He trained at The Christ Hospital and is board certified in Internal Medicine. 

“I have been a practicing hospitalist for the last nine years,” he says. “Not only do I run One Heart Medical, but you can also find me teaching medical students and residents as a part-time faculty at a local hospital and volunteering to provide medical services to the underserved in downtown Cincinnati.”

Aside from the work he does to better the community and the lives of his patients through his medical practice, he also feels strongly about education. 

“We provide detailed education in regards to all aspects of cannabis to our patients, including modes of use, impact of various cannabinoids and terpenes, and dosing,” explains Weeks. “We tailor the education to the patient’s individual needs.”

While there are a variety of services offered at One Heart Medical, each treatment plan is individualized to the person receiving those services based on their medical problems, symptoms, and the medications they take.

“We have an open door policy, thus if a patient of ours has any questions they can call us, email us, use our clinics my chart, or come back in to see us,” he says. “We want all our patients to achieve the best results from cannabis.”

One Heart Medical is helping its clinic stand out from other healthcare providers in the quality service it offers patients. Included in the private, non discriminatory, and relaxed environment are 1 hour visits so that each patient gets quality time and education. 

One Heart Medical is located in the historic Lincoln School in Columbia Tusculum at 455 Delta Avenue, Suite 303

Now that we’re coming to the end of the year, it’s nice to look back on all that we’ve achieved. Perhaps you’re the kind of superwoman who sets herself a whole bookful of resolutions and ticks them off throughout the year. (In which case why are you reading?! You’ve got this down already!) If you’re not that kind of woman however, then perhaps it’s time to take some tips on board.

Deciding on a type of exercise that works for you is key to realising your fitness goals

Achieve Your Fitness Goals with a Team Sport

A great way to reach your fitness goals this new year is to sign up for a team sport. Ohio has a pretty great track record with basketball and, although you’re unlikely to be taking part in the battle between the Clippers and the Lakers this time around, having a team around you and the electric atmosphere of the basketball court is a great way to spur you on and keep you motivated.

If basketball isn’t rocking your boat, then maybe you need to make your team a bit smaller? Playing doubles tennis or badminton only requires two of you (and of course another team to play with!). It could be a really nice way to spend a bit more quality time with your partner, or it could be a really effective way of getting you and your bestie out of the bar and into your workout gear. Whichever one you opt for, tennis and badminton are both great cardio based workouts.

Making time for the simple things like reading a book can be a great place to start your list of resolutions

Be Realistic With Your Expectations

One of the most important things to remember when making your resolutions is to be realistic with your expectations. Some people just aren’t designed for marathon running, especially if they haven’t left the couch in the last couple of years. Find things that you already enjoy in life, or have some aptitude for and focus on those. If you love nothing more than kicking back with a book, but can’t recall the last time you made it through a whole one, then make it a goal to read 6 books next year. If you achieve it, make it 12 books the next year. Increasing incrementally in this way means you’re far more likely to stick to your goals and eventually achieve what you set out to.

Try to Make Time for ‘Me-Time’

In this busy busy busy modern world, it’s so important to make time for ourselves. It can be very easy to fall into the trap of making all of our New Year’s Resolutions about everyone else. Perhaps it’s to take on more tasks at work or see more of the in-laws, but rarely do we stop to consider ourselves. A really worthwhile resolution this year could be to invest some time into our mental health. Just ten minutes a day spent practicing meditation could make a whole world of difference to our energy levels and concentration. Similarly factoring a little yoga into our exercise routine is a great way to leave yourself feeling relaxed and grounded (not to mention a great workout in itself!).

Every year we go through a similar routine. We get to December after 12 months of hard work and decide that we’re going to go all-out over the holidays, celebrating the good times while we can. Then, as the first week of January hits, the realization dawns that we’ve put on ten pounds in weight. Only the most drastic of New Year’s resolutions will save us!

Sticking to New Year’s resolutions, however, is trickier than you might think. Yes, people want to lose weight and tone up, but they often need help doing it. 

What are the top 5 New Year’s resolutions?

The top five near years resolutions are: 

  1. To eat healthier or go on a diet
  2. To exercise more
  3. To lose weight
  4. To save money and spend less
  5. To learn a new skill or hobby

How do you set goals for New Year’s resolutions? 

Setting goals for your New Year’s resolutions is easy. Just follow these easy steps: 

  • Write down your goals and then check back with them periodically to make sure that you still want to follow them
  • Set goals for different areas of your life, whether financial, health or quality-of-life related
  • Create goals that you can measure, such as losing a certain amount of weight before a particular date
  • Include your partner or significant other in your goal setting decisions

Why are New Year’s resolutions important? 

New Year’s resolutions are important because they help clarify your priorities. They help you focus on the things that you most want from life. 

What gifts can help people keep their resolutions?

Are you wondering which gifts can help people keep their New Year’s resolutions? If so, you’re in luck. Take a look at these personalized gifts for him and gifts for her. 

A Wall Grid

A wall grid is a little bit like a personalised planner but for everyone to see. It’s essentially a frame that you put on the wall that allows you to hang post-it notes reminding you what you need to do next. It’s like a calendar, but a bit more flexible. 

A Gym Bag

Is there a person in your life who wants to improve his or her fitness in the new year? If so, a gym bag might be just the thing that they need to give them that extra push to go out and train.

Gym bags have come a long way in recent years. They’re no longer giant duffel bags with vulgar branding scrawled all over them. Instead, they are elegant, stylish, and help the recipient look their best whenever they rock up to the gym. 

A Personalised Planner

Anyone who wants to make a significant lifestyle change needs a personalized planner – a vital piece of kit for writing down what they plan to achieve their resolutions for the new year.

A Personalized, Framed To-Do List

People who have great routines tend to have great lives. While exercising, eating well, and working hard are all difficult in the short term, they pay off massively over the decades. A person who does everything right from age twenty-five to age fifty-five can look forward to a relaxing retirement, freedom, and a much-reduced risk of adverse health problems.

Sometimes, though, people need a bit of a nudge in the right direction to help them make the right choices. That’s what’s so wonderful about personalized daily to-do lists. You can personalize a shortlist of perhaps ten things that the recipient should do every day to make their lives better. It could be something like, wake up, drink a cup of green tea, have a green smoothie, go for a 20-minute walk, and so on. Thus, it could be the perfect way to remind them how to live, day after day, if they traditionally struggle to stick with their New Year’s resolution. 

Healthy Chocolate Alternatives

A lot of people resolve to give up eating chocolate for New Year’s. Chocolate not only contains loads of sugar, but it’s packed full of fat from the cocoa bean, too, making it an ideal food for gaining weight. 

Modern health-orientated companies, however, now make a variety of chocolate substitute products made from whole foods that don’t cause weight gain but still taste great. 

Going cold turkey on chocolate is hard. Chocolate contains dozens of feel-good compounds that send genuine chocolate-lovers wild. Most of these compounds, however, are in the defatted cocoa powder, not in the other elements. Cocoa is a health food. Hence, you can now buy a range of chocolate products that do not contain any of the refined ingredients you would typically find in regular chocolate. Instead, the sweetness comes from dates (a whole fruit) and the fat from nuts (like cashews blended into a paste). 

A “More Self Love” Badge

Sometimes people need a gentle reminder to be kinder to themselves. A “More Self Love” badge is the perfect present for anyone who is trying to look after themselves better in the new year. 

A Matcha Brewing Kit

Matcha is ground up green tea leaves. It’s become a popular choice of beverage over recent years because of the extraordinary health benefits of daily green tea consumption. Green tea contains potent compounds that help to improve health at the fundamental level, switching your cells into maintenance mode, making it a vital part of any weight loss plan. 

Making matcha tea, however, isn’t always straightforward. It requires a little know-how. Fortunately, with a Matcha Brewing Kit from companies like Matchelogist, it’s easy. The kit comes with a double-walled glass teapot, a hand whisk made of bamboo, and a bamboo measuring spoon. There are also instructions showing you how to drink this tea like a true Buddhist monk. Just leave it to brew, and you’re all set. 

A Tea Subscription

You can get a subscription for practically anything these days, including, it seems, for tea. A tea subscription is an excellent gift for her because it completely takes care of the drinks side of the diet equation. With an endless supply of healthy teas, she won’t be so tempted to reach for the double cream macchiato.

Want to better your health and wellness in the New Year? Learn about a counseling and coaching business that helps to develop empowered women.

In today’s world it’s important to take care of you. That’s what Galia Collaborative is here for. They want to help empower purpose-driven women to develop their mental wellness through therapy, coaching, and content.

“We believe that the impact of women will be elevated when they can take charge of their mental health and wellbeing,” says Galia Collaborative Founder Dr. Ashley Solomon. “We provide accessible services and thoughtful content development by women’s mental health experts.”

Solomon says that she was inspired to launch Galia Collaborative after years of working as a psychologist, business leader, mom, and woman. 

“I spent years in the trenches of burnout culture and recognized that stress and anxiety were eating away at my wellbeing,” she explains. “Even being in the behavioral healthcare field, no one was talking about how we can sustainably manage our mental health.”

Soloman didn’t want to offer traditional therapy, which seemed so removed from what she had experienced in her field, and executive coaching wasn’t something that was available to her. 

“I wanted to take the years that I’d spend developing treatment approaches and programming for women and create a space that addressed the needs of busy professionals in a modern, gender-responsive, and evidence-based way,” she says. “I’ve always been focused on trying to answer how we can elevate the voices and impact of women, and I recognize that empower women’s mental health is key.”

Soloman says that she spent her earlier career in the field of eating disorders before she found that those same women who recovered from eating disorders were still lacking the tools they needed to be fully health in how they approach both life and work. “This and my own journey led me to thinking about how we can create meaningful services and tools to support women who are going to make a difference,” she adds.

Solomon is joined in her practice by clinician Jennifer Burns, a licensed counselor with a background in professional comedy. “She specializes with women who have experienced trauma or are navigating other mental health or life challenges,” says Solomon. There’s also Erin McMenamin, a licensed social worker, who recently joined the team and is offering coaching for women making big transitions.

At Galia Collaborative, you’ll find that the work the team does is action-oriented and designed to create real movement toward the values of clients. “We use evidence-based approaches based on psychological science in both our therapy and coaching work,” she says.

Therapy services offered at Galia Collaborative are for adolescent and adult women both in-person and online. 

“We offer professional coaching for women who are ready to elevate their impact in their careers or are navigating challenges in their work,” says Solomon. “We believe that doing so starts from within and moves its way outward, and our coaching is both introspective and actionable.”

In addition to the services currently offered, Galia Collaborative is in the process of developing talks and workshops for organizations on how to elevate their impact through mental health and wellness.

Solomon says that in the coming year Galia Collaborative is launching Thrive Circles, small groups of committed women who are connecting around a particular challenge or interest. 

“We have two starting early in the year and are accepting registration for those now,” says Solomon. “The first is a mastermind for women service-based business owners, and the other is for your women, ages 23-35, looking to set themselves up for personal and professional success.”

One of the first full-service climbing gyms in the Midwest has opened its doors in a new location in Oakley. Keep reading for more.

 
It’s been 26 years since Climb Time opened its first location in Blue Ash. Now, in 2019, they’re opening their doors at a second location in Oakley.
 
“Climb Time Oakley is a 45-ft tall facility with lead climbing, top roping, speed climbing, and, of course, bouldering,” says Climb Time President Patty Law. “We are open to beginner intermediate, and advanced climbers, and our pro shop offers climbing gear, clothing, books, and accessories.”
 
Those who want to get in the rock climbing game or who want to advance their skills can check out the facility that was built from the ground up and features nearly 11,000-square-feet of climbable wall space.
 
In addition to the climbing offerings at Climb Time, you’ll also find other amenities including a Tension board, a campus board, a rowing machine, kettlebells, and free weights. 
 
“Yoga classes and fitness clinics are something that we will have in our offerings in the near future,” says Law. “Our location, which is within walking distance of MadTree Brewing, had its grand opening on August 31 and saw a massive turnout with a line of patrons that wrapped outside around the corner.”
 
Law says that those who want to turn their passion for climbing into a competition can try out the competitions that are held at Climb Time, including the famed circuit America Bouldering Series that was born in Climb Time in the late 90s.
