So Easy Salmon Cake Recipe

These are a cinch to make from start to finish. These salmon cakes are healthy, fast, and delicious... and can be served for lunch with a salad or for dinner with a side of vegetables. Plus they are a cinch to make from start to finish.  I mixed them up a few hours before dinner this week. Coach Dean was able to coach his soccer team and have dinner ready when I came in from the gym. Now that's teamwork.

What Does 10 Years At Cr8 Fitness Look Like?

A decade can be viewed as a very long thing. It can also be a very short thing. If I look back when I was in second grade 10 years later would have been close to an eternity of time. When I look back on my kids last 10 years, It's flown by so quickly. 

What about in the gym? Cr8 Fitness has been around for more than 13 years. Has anyone survived more than a year, 3 years, 5 years, or the unthinkable 10? The incredible answer is Yes! In fact Dan at 6:15am has been training with us since day one. Brian is a close second by just about 3 weeks. 

And there are soooo many more. 

I'm incredibly humbled when I look at the peeps in the gym. We all have our different reasons for being here and yet health and fitness unite us all. 

I'm a grandma, my littlest peeps call me Gigi. When I am 93 years old, I want them to think I am worthy of being asked to go sky diving by them. I want to be that crazy Gigi they tell their friends about. 

Get to know those in your training time. I know you will be awed and inspired by their story.  

Gretchen who is owns one of the famous names on the banners in the gym put it so well as she signed her name that day. She wrote, "Gretchen, a Work in Progress." We are all a work in progress. I'm proud to be working along side, with you, and for you.

Keep Making It Happen,

Coach Nancy
