La Mirada~Five-year La Mirada resident Robert Paul Adams is spearheading the way for a new free weekly fitness class that meets three times a week at La Mirada Regional Park.

After Marriage, Robert had reached a weight that was intolerable, and made a commitment to change his lifestyle and started a Tuesday night running group at the park.

After joining Herbalife and putting himself on a diet and workout regimen, he met two individuals that would eventually lead to the creation of this free and local fitness class in La Mirada.

Adams joined forces with Loni Tyler and Wendy Biddle and the three quickly realized there was a community interest in fitness, but a lack of free, organized and easily accessible opportunities to exercise in town.

The solution was the creation of a free workout class that is conducted three times a week and twice a day with the primary objective to provide fitness exercises for the community and information for those seeking a healthier lifestyle.

“We provide the opportunity to create relationships with new individuals and by helping the community get fit, were also unintentionally, but happily knitting the community together,” Adams said.

The group continues to grow and regularly draws over two dozen participants and more.

The class meets on Mondays and Wednesday’s at 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and Fridays at 9:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. the class is usually one-hour long and consists of a full body work out including cardio, upper body, core and legs.

Healthy Mama Diaries: Choosing the Right Sunscreen E-mail

The Healthy Mama and Jet

Growing up I craved a nice golden glow that the sun gave to my skin.  I loved to layout with a friend or by myself to get a tan.  I knew the best time of day to get a tan and during the summer I would plan my days around these hours.  Although I always applied sunscreen to my face, I have to admit I rarely applied sunscreen to the rest of my body.

As I got older (and somewhat wiser) my views on the sun and it’s beautifully dangerous rays have changed drastically.  Now that I am a mom, it is more important to me than ever that I not only protect myself from the sun but that I also protect my family from the sun.  Choosing a safe and effective sunscreen was my mission.

I hadn’t yet done my research on sunscreens when we took our son to the beach for the first time last year.  I got lucky when my mother-in-law Teresa handed me a tube of Badger® Sunscreen.  She told me that it was the best sunscreen that she had found.  It contained no harsh chemicals, was broad spectrum, and was a non-nano zinc oxide sunscreen.  Knowing that she highly researches products before using them, I trusted that she was right.  That weekend we made lots of fun family memories and both my son and I left sunburn free.

As soon as we got home form the beach I started to explore different sunscreens.  I quickly realized that half of the terms written on the labels were foreign to me.  I then knew that there was more to choosing a sunscreen than picking one with a high SPF.  I now, not only wanted to choose an effective sunscreen, but I also wanted it to be safe for my family as well.
