California Coast Classic

By Kimmy Schmidt   The Life-Changing Effects of Accomplishing the California Coast Classic Bike Tour Meet Oren Noah from Sonoma County! In 2015, he was in a toxic working environment, 350 pounds, and trying to recover from total knee replacement surgery due to osteoarthritis. A combination of hard decisions and eureka moments would soon transform his life in ways he never expected. Oren signed up for the Arthritis Foundation’s annual California Coast Classic—a fully supported, 8-day bike tour along California’s iconic Highway 1, accompanied by 250 veteran and novice cyclists, all contributing to raise $1 million in funds for the Arthritis Foundation. It begins in San Francisco and ends in Los Angeles, traveling a bucket-list route down the California Coastline each September.   The Biggest Misconception of Arthritis Arthritis is commonly regarded as the “aging disease,” but actually, two-thirds of people with arthritis are under age 65, including an estimated 300,000 children! Arthritis isn’t a singular illness; it’s a category for over 100 forms of joint disease and is often linked to autoimmune disorders including Lupus, Crohn’s, and Lyme. Even more surprising—some participants of this tour, like Oren, complete the 525 miles over 8 days with arthritis! Oren’s experience leading…

Scuba diving is not just a great activity for almost anyone; it is also an incredible experience that is sure to create some fantastic memories.

Kayaking Tips for Beginners

With summer officially here, Southern Californians are heading out into the ocean, in search of adventure. Kayaking is a great way to stay cool in the summer, get a fantastic workout and, in many cases, catch a glimpse of the local sea life.   Hold your paddle correctly. It’s important to hold the paddle correctly, with hands shoulder-width apart (or wider), with an overhand grip. Keep arms fully extended away from the body and don’t T-Rex! There are two sides to the paddle–scoop and spine. When paddling forward, keep the scoop side of the paddle facing towards you. When paddling backwards, have the spine facing towards you.   Don’t just pull the paddle or you will quickly tire out your shoulders. When pulling the paddle side in the water towards you, focus also on pushing the paddle side out of the water away from your body. This will help ensure you are using multiple muscle groups instead of making your shoulders do all the work. When paddling, remember to twist your torso into the movement. This will help maintain your center of gravity, produce more efficient strokes and utilize more of your body.   Getting in and out of the kayak…
