Living in the Tanglewood area makes it easy to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The neighborhood is full of healthy food options, fitness centers, and beautiful parks. As a Tanglewood resident and a life-long “gym rat”, exercise is an important part of my routine. Whether it is cycling, yoga, HIIT training at Empower FitnessLab, walking at Memorial Park, or the occasional round of golf, exercise is a habit for me.
The Tanglewood area is the perfect place to kickstart or maintain your exercise routine. For me, exercise is as much a part of my life as brushing my teeth or taking a shower. I encourage you to start slowly and build up. Whether you’re just beginning and going once or twice a week or increasing to three or four times a week, it’s time to get moving!

I highly advocate exercise for all of its benefits. It promotes a general sense of well-being, boosting endorphins, healthy BMI, stress relief, and spending quality time with family and friends. As a busy Realtor, it’s important for me to manage my time wisely to ensure that I get my exercise, and my clients directly benefit from this! My increased energy, clarity of mind, and overall stamina help me help them solve their difficult real estate problems.
Making small changes and implementing them consistently over a long period of time is so important! Darren Hardy’s book The Compound Effect taught me this and many other tips. Small changes lead to big impacts. Even if you’re feeling stressed out or tired, look deep inside yourself and find the courage to go for a 10-15 minute walk. One day that 10-15 minutes will become 20-30 minutes, you’ll feel refreshed, relaxed, and grateful for the small changes you implemented. So, start developing the habits today that will turn you into a “gym rat,” and you’ll never look back!
