Hearts, roses, love – things that remind us of Valentine’s Day. These things also remind me of my parents and the love they shared. My father frequently brought my mother roses as a symbol of his love. Unfortunately, their time together was cut short when my dad died at Age 49 of dilated cardiomyopathy, a disease in which the heart muscle weakens and becomes enlarged. Watching my father’s health deteriorate and his early death fueled my passion for fitness and my desire to help others attain optimum health.
Though I didn’t have the opportunity to help my dad, I am grateful his large heart propelled me further down my path to living healthy and helping others. At Sheehan Personal Training we believe EVERYONE has the potential to be healthy, feel good, and look great!

When our bodies are properly hydrated, our blood is at its proper consistency enabling efficient distribution throughout our body. According to Brendan Brazier, a professional triathlete and author of “Thrive,” the cells of a properly hydrated body swell, causing growth of muscle tissue and speeding up cellular renewal. Hydrated cells remain alkaline, yet a breakdown of muscle tissue occurs when cells become de-hydrated, advancing degeneration.
According to many experts, water just isn’t enough to keep us hydrated due to the flushing of electrolytes which occur when only water is used to hydrate. This can cause muscle cramping and heart palpitations. Electrolytes are salts with electrical properties that conduct charges that are essential for muscle contractions, heart beats, fluid regulation, and general nerve function. The chief minerals in electrolytes are chloride, calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium.
Though salt has been demonized by conventional medicine in recent years, it plays an important role in maintaining good health. All salts are not created equal and can easily be confused. Most studies which result in detrimental reports of salt do not include unrefined sea salt. Iodized table salt is highly processed, bleached, and stripped of most of the minerals which are beneficial to our cells.
Unrefined sea salt is harvested from evaporated sea water and contains up to 80 mineral elements, including electrolytes and trace minerals.
In the article “Salt Your Way to Health” Dr. David Brownstein, MD concludes that unrefined sea salt provides the body with a complex of nutrients it needs to function optimally. He finds that Celtic Sea Salt is a particularly effective brand which contains over 80 minerals and is easily absorbed.
Each person has different hydrations needs based on their diet and activity levels, but here is my calorie-free concoction that is delicious and my favorite way to ensure that I replace electrolytes for optimal energy:
1 tsp Celtic Ground Sea Salt
½ lemon squeezed in (alkalizes pH balance)
8 – 12 ounces water
