Director of Public Health Kathy Moore speaks on COVID 19 with an update for Muskegon County on April 8th 2020.  How the community is being begged to stay home, stay safe.  How the African American population is being hit with a higher degree of the illness and where to turn for help if the mental stress of everything is becoming to be too much for anyone.

Muskegon Surgical Associates has been a key part for me since December.  They asked a week ago if we could help get the word out that they were still open, and seeing patients on an urgent and emergency basis and we of course were happy to welcome them.  If you don't recall, I woke up with a stomach ache one morning and by that afternoon, life changed dramatically and it was the caring hands of Dr. Jennifer Bradley of Muskegon Surgical Associates that I pulled though.  

Yep - We've gotta go back a few episodes for a while as we're doing out part to observe the "stay home, stay safe" orders.  Not much of what we'd hoped for, but it is what is is and since it's been 140 weeks without a "best of" well, we can all give a little.  It's been a while since you've seen this one, so we're pretty sure you're gonna think it's brand new!

We're doing all we can at the Muskegon Channel to maintain a sense of normalcy, but we are also right out front working day after day to bring you as much news and information as we can directly from Muskegon County officials as fast as we can.

We've been around the "Talk Sooner" campaign for a while.  We are partners with the Health Project of Mercy Health in Muskegon and over the years we've covered the message behind Talk Sooner on both the Positively Muskegon Blog as well as right here on the Muskegon Channel.  Yes, we're talking about bringing up taboo subjects...drugs, alcohol, vaping abstaining from them and convincing kids that the easiest way to stop, is to never start, but especially to never start at an early age when the brain is still developing, 

Morning!  Happy Monday!  It's your weekly kick off to a little healthier lifestyle and a little more pep in your step!!  Fit and Healthy With Becky rolls on and we're happy to be able to not only help you stick around the house like we've all been told, but..we can also provide a little feeling of "normal" when it comes to the day to day in life! 

In episode 140 of Fit and Healthy With Becky, there are no requirements other than a mat if you have one and a desire to get to it and stick to it.  It's a Pilates work out designed to use the goods you've been given and nothing more!  She's going to show you how to move your arms, legs and everything in between and it might even have a spelling lesson too!

As always, consult your Dr. before you start this or any other work out.  Warm up, stretch out and drink plenty of water!  Here comes episode 140 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on The Muskegon Channel.


You just did Pilates!  All it took was a stay at home order?  Hey...whatever it takes!  Now, plan on coming back to do it again later today or tomorrow!  Share it with some friends and make it a habit!  Fit and Healthy With Becky has a new episode weekly on the Muskegon Channel and we also put the show on the Muskegon Channel for Roku and Amazon Fire TV!

Last week, Becky customized a workout for those who are a little advanced in years or might have some mobility issues.  Well, that was then and this week...she's coming out swinging for those who are in search of an advanced workout that pushes things to the limit.  This is an advanced workout, so please..make sure you are in proper condition to begin.

Who'd have thought that you'd show up for this weeks episode of Fit and Healthy With Becky and be invited to pull up a chair and get comfortable?  Well, Becky is a Certified Personal Trainer and her certification is for EVERYONE, and that includes those who might have a hard time getting up and jumping around, or doing some of the more extreme movements you see here weekly on Fit and Healthy.  Yes, this week, Becky's custom tailored a work out for the senior citizens!

Spring!!  It's right around the corner.  This week, it's a sunshine filled forecast and of and around Muskegon...we have a mantra!  "Sun's out....Guns out"!!  We're talking about those arms of yours and Becky is here with episode 136 of Fit and Healthy With Becky to help you get those wings toned up and a few other areas too! 

You get to a new week and you hear HOLD IT!, first thing!  No, it's not an easy way out for a start to a Monday, it's actually a call to action for a way to get a work out in by holding a pose for a few minutes and giving those muscles a few minutes to think about what they are doing! 

You may have stumbled on it over the years.  I mean, it's not every day you walk into a big public place like the mall and find a bunch of people riding stationary bikes with loud music playing, people screaming and cheering, wild costumes, fun themes and the smell of sweat in the air.  You may have participated.  Hey, Muskegon is a hot bed for people who are serious about their bikes!  Be it Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, we've got lots of beautiful areas for people on bikes.  Trails, dunes, bike paths and scenery abound and our bike community works together to support each other as well as the areas they ride.  We're talking about "The Ride" put on by Mercy Health and while you may have seen or heard about it, did you know?  It's not only a great event, it's a HUGE part of benefiting cardiac care in Muskegon!

Time to renew your love of dumbbells.  Not necessarily friends or family members, but for the small handheld weights that add a little resistance to your work out and help tone up the arms and body parts that could use a little toning.  Might be your legs, might be your back might be your'd be surprised just how much Becky can get out of a dumbbell.  

New week and Becky is upping the offerings from The Gym in North Muskegon.  It's time to add a little strength and cardio to what you've been up to and in Episode 132 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on The Muskegon Channel, Becky is going to show you just how to do it!
