Coffee is my best friend and workout partner

Coffee is my best friend and workout partner
Coffee makes the world a better place.

Today, U.S. News writer and certified strength and conditioning coach K. Aleisha Fetters published an article with three simple tips to use coffee to boost your performance while exercising--which delighted me to no end.  Why? Because I start each and every day of my life with a healthy cup of coffee, and I'm guessing you do too since it's reported that 83% of Americans drink at least a cup of coffee each day, according to the National Coffee Association.  As a matter of fact, according to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, coffee is even a good alternative to water!

I was happy when I read Fetters article because I too studied exercise science and there has always been a big debate on whether or not to drink coffee pre- or post-workout.  I'm glad to know that all these years I have been drinking coffee I've actually been making a healthy choice. If only I could say the same for all the other crap I've struggled with along the years from microwave popcorn to sugar and meat.  At least coffee remains my best friend and workout partner.

About Me: I'm a wife and mom of six daughters known as "The Fitness Evangelist" because of my ability to take ordinary fitness classes and turn them into worshipful events. I have a graduate degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion and I'm also a certified fitness instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America. I also help people with their health and fitness goals any where in the world through my business with Total Life Changes.

    I am a wife and mother blessed to have six daughters who fill my home with love and laughter. My passion is writing and teaching, but most especially inspiring people to live healthy lives in my faith-filled fitness classes. My dream is to have my own faith and fitness TV show where people from all the world collectively join together on our "temple" building project of enjoying optimal health. I am a certified group fitness instructor by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), and earned graduate degrees in Writing from DePaul University, in addition to a degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion from the California University of Pennsylvania. I have seen and experienced the hand of God work and move in my life, and consider it an honor and blessing to be saved to serve.
