Marcy coaching Jan on balance

We just can’t help it. When something makes us this inspired and excited, we can’t keep ourselves from sharing it with everyone. That’s why we’re featuring OsteoStrong Tulsa front and center for all to see in this month’s newsletter. This process — and the team in Tulsa — has done incredible things for hundreds of people in our community over the past year, and we can’t wait to watch it continue to grow. Here’s everything we want you to know. In April 2019, Marcy Smith and Sue Welch opened Tulsa’s very first OsteoStrong branch. The business has nearly 20 locations nationwide dedicated to helping people build stronger bones. “It’s a once- weekly, 15-minute session specifically designed to strengthen your skeletal system,” Marcy explains. “All appointments include one-on-one coaching with a focus on form and safety.” Since first opening its doors, the Tulsa location has grown more rapidly than expected, and that’s a thrilling prospect for everyone involved. It has already surpassed membership projection by nearly 30%, and Marcy and Sue are eager to keep welcoming anyone who wants to benefit from simple workouts that can actually increase their bone density and improve their quality of life. I’ve been attending OsteoStrong sessions with Susie and can already feel a noticeable difference in my strength and balance. Before, I didn’t even realize it was something I was missing. I’ve seen people in our community, especially older folks, become stronger and more independent after the work they do at OsteoStrong. It really is incredible.

Science and numbers aside, Marcy knows that this is the most rewarding career choice she’s ever made. “It’s about quality of life for us and for our members,” she says. “To be able to own a business that allows our members to expand their opportunities as they age, rather than lose opportunities, is huge.” And OsteoStrong members agree completely. “I recently tackled a backyard path project that involved digging up and moving full-size railroad ties. I’m 67 years old, and I did it all by myself! Thank you, OsteoStrong!” –D.S. “I stepped on one of those balls that fall from sycamore trees, began to slip and fall, but was able to regain my balance without falling. My balance is so much better after starting at OsteoStrong. I also visited my daughter recently, and she told me that I’m moving more quickly, my posture is better, and my confidence is better.” –R.K. “Before OsteoStrong, I found myself focusing on all the things I couldn’t do anymore. Now, I’m focusing on all the things I can do again. It’s been a wonderful shift in my thinking and my outlook!” –J.F. These kinds of exercises aren’t just for older people, though. “At age 30, men and women alike begin to lose bone density,” Marcy says. “OsteoStrong is something people should be doing preventively. Sue and I are very proud to bring this service to all the people of Tulsa.”

The OsteoStrong franchise is only in its eighth year of operation, but the phenomenon has been growing steadily. “Just you watch. It’s such an incredible program, and in two or three years, it’ll be a household name,” Marcy says. “That’s a very exciting prospect to be a part of.” We encourage everyone to find out more about OsteoStrong! You can attend one of their “Osteogenic Loading” presentations to learn more. They’re held every Tuesday at 6 p.m. and every Friday at 12 p.m. To reserve your seat, call 918- 528-3828 or email TulsaMidtown@OsteoStrong. me.

Why We Recommend This Book by David Sinclair

At Masterpiece Smiles, we’re all about finding ways to make healthy choices for ourselves as we age, so naturally, we gravitate toward interesting and incredible insights about human health. “Lifespan: Why We Age — and Why We Don’t Have To” by David Sinclair is a book that we’ve been so enthralled by, and we can’t help but share it with our readers. David Sinclair is an Australian biologist and Harvard Medical School scientist with a long history of

Thank you so much for spreading the word about Masterpiece Smiles.

groundbreaking research and insight into genetics and longevity. His newest book, released in September 2019, has a somewhat startling but extremely inspiring statement for readers: Aging is a disease, and disease is treatable. Through boundary-pushing research that he conducted in his own lab at Harvard, Sinclair demonstrates how humans can actually slow down, and in some cases, reverse , the process of aging through the activation of newly discovered vitality genes. He says these genes are the descendants of a string of ancient genetics that the world has only just rediscovered and began to tap back into. In the book, he takes a careful look at the effects of DNA damage and the instability it can cause, alterations in turning certain genes “on” and “off,” and other topics like stem cells, protein maintenance, and more. There’s admittedly a lot of science to work your way through when you read this book. But mixed in with the science are incredible real-life stories about people who have changed the way they think about age and the tactics they use to act upon their changing views. Even Sinclair himself talks about the regimens he uses and the lifestyle changes he’s made in order to live his life in accordance with his discoveries. Case in point: His 80-something father follows suit, and the man frequently accomplishes physically demanding activities like hiking and kayaking. Those are pretty astounding results in our opinion. We love sharing healthy inspirations with others, and this book is so fascinating and inspiring that we had to make sure we let our readers know about it. We hope you’ll find it as interesting and eye-opening as we did and that you’ll use it to help you live a long and happy life!

On National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day GIVING BACK TO LOCAL COMPANIES

GET SOCIAL AND SPREAD THE WORD! While small businesses utilize every form of marketing available, social media is essential for their success and growth. After shopping at your favorite mom-and-pop business, share that experience on your social media! When you write a post on Facebook or take a picture for Instagram, be sure to tag the business and use relevant hashtags so your friends, family, and everyone else in your community can shop there too. Writing reviews on Google Reviews and Yelp helps establish validity for the company. When another potential customer looks for reviews, they know they’re getting quality products and services from a well-established pillar of the community. The local businesses that are active on social media may post deals and sales for that day only, so keep your eyes peeled and be sure to follow all your favorite businesses!

March 29 is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, which is huge for small businesses everywhere.

Furthermore, no matter what turns the economy takes, small-business owners are less likely to lay off their employees than big corporations.
