Baseball in Big Sky is alive and well! The Big Sky Royals were able to field teams in four different age levels this spring, ranging from age 7 to 15. All four teams enjoyed strong seasons while improving significantly.
Q: Hi Pat! I am utterly confused about training for health and fitness. I was a three-sport athlete throughout high school, and did plenty of programs designed by coaches. Now I am 35, a wife and mother of two kids under 5, with an entirely different schedule and set of responsibilities.
Q: Hi Pat! I have totally fallen off the wagon since COVID hit, 14 LONG months ago. I am in a management position, working remotely, with ESTPST time zone meetings.

Q: Hi Pat! When does the pursuit of good health become an obsession? Ok, I get it. I need to take care of myself. But tracking every breath I take, every morsel I eat, every step I take, and every minute of quality zzzz’s is not for me.
