TUNITY AND NEW GOALS. Whether or not you set resolutions, it still seems to be a time for reflection on the past year and hopes for the year to come. January is our “wellness” issue and is full of stories to inspire and motivate you with your goals, whatever they may be. Wellness is defined as a “quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.”  Wellness emphasizes prevention and prolonging life, which is why this issue not only focuses on physical activities, like Pure Barre and R3BAR, but also nutritional recipes, midlife education from startup Genneve and breakthrough treatments in the medical field like the ones performed at Seattle Regenerative Clinic. Whatever your goals may be, we hope the people, places, recipes and tips and tricks in this issue will inspire you to focus on wellness in the new year. Thanks for reading, Bellevue, and happy New Year!

BELLEVUE RECOGNIZED AS TOP 'DIGITAL CITY' Bellevue recently took first place in the 2018 Digital City Survey after launching technology that counted as a “smart city” dashboard for tracking predictive analytics to prevent pipe failures and transmission of patient information to hospitals from ambulances. "The first-place recognition by the Digital Cities Survey is the culmination of a lot of hard work,” City Manager Brad Miyake said. “It also showcases the collaborative technology efforts across the city and region that have resulted in better, more efficient services for residents and businesses.”

S u p e r f oo d S i p s DELICIOUS AND NUTRITIOUS SMOOTHIES TO NOURISH YOURSELF IN 2019

AS THE NUTRITION AND HORMONE HEALTH COACH OF SO FRESH N SO GREEN, I WITNESS FIRSTHAND HOW TEMPTING IT IS FOR MY CLIENTS TO START THE NEW YEAR OFF WITH A DRASTIC DIET OR CLEANSE—AND I GET IT. The holidays can be heavy with pie, parties and cocktails. But instead of feeling the pull to diet or detox, I want to reinforce, refocus and remind others how great you can feel when you make the choice to nourish and take care of yourself, not just in January but all year long. Thus rather than depriving yourself of certain foods, try to refocus on adding more nutrients and self-care tactics that will empower you to look and feel your very best. These superfood smoothies are so thick, creamy and delicious they could pass as milkshakes  while sneaking in tons of anti-inflammatory and metabolism-boosting ingredients that will reignite your health quickly and effectively.

Helping You, Your Body and Your Mind

SEATTLE REGENERATIVE MEDICINE CENTER A NEW APPROACH TO CARE

DO YOU DREAM OF GETTING AHOLD OF YOUR DOCTOR WITHOUT A PHONE TREE, UNDERSTANDING ALL YOUR OPTIONS, HAVING EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR PROCEDURE TAKEN CARE OF FOR YOU AND FEELING RELAXED WHEN YOU COME IN FOR TREATMENT? You will find this dream come true at Seattle Regenerative Medicine Center. Dr. Rooney, a nationally recognized spine surgeon; and Dr. Hostetter, a nationally recognized anesthesiologist; have joined their skills to create a one-of-a-kind boutique practice focused on you, your body and your mind. SRMC is the only practice in the area offering a surgeon and anesthesiologist working side by side to treat arthritis, spinal stenosis, depression, chronic pain, neurodegenerative disorders and providing Dermafrac. This is not just another doctor’s office with long waiting lines, unhappy front desk people and answers you don’t fully understand. It’s a group of doctors and staff who genuinely care about their patients and want to see the whole person functioning well without surgery whenever possible. At SRMC, you will find personable, passionate, educated and highly trained doctors that desire to give you the best treatments and experience. Dr. Rooney’s surgical expertise started in the military where he was one of the leading doctors in regenerative care using stem cells as a method of healing. Many of his colleagues requested him to work on their own families and loved ones, which he saw as a sign of true trust and skill.  "I am always a student, and I want to get an A-plus on every patient I see. I want to be the best provider they ever encounter,” Dr. Rooney says. This perspective shines through everything he does. Dr. Hostetter’s philosophy was shaped by one of her mentors in residency, Christopher Bernard, who told her to “always imagine what it is like from the patient’s perspective. Make that a primary focus of your practice.”  This shaped her aspiration to have more time with each patient and hear their needs and desires which eventually led to her opening SRMC. Her favorite treatment SRMC provides is the Ketamine treatment because she says it “is truly life-saving.” Allowing an alternative option for PTSD and severe depressions, this treatment has an 80 percent effectiveness rate.   “We believe in innovation and thinking outside the box for medical care," Dr. Hostetter says. “You will have direct access to support in all your healthcare needs,” Dr. Rooney says. 22

“We want to get our patients back to living the life they love.” –Dr. Hostetter


Stem Cell Therapy for Your Body “We try to avoid surgery whenever possible.” –Dr. Hostetter Advanced stem cell and blood platelet procedures for treating arthritis, orthopedic injuries and other degenerative conditions. Allowing the patient to avoid or put off surgery for longer and recover much quickly so they can get back to the things they love to do. (in short: maintain functionality with decreased pain.)

Ketamine Therapy for Your Mind and Mood “This is one of my favorite things. It is truly life-saving.” –Dr. Hostetter Ketamine has been around since the 1960s but was recently discovered to have great success in returning your life back to what was normal prior to depression. It is a safe procedure and highly effective, with more than 80 percent or more people having rapid results.

Dermafrac for You “To help the body heal itself.” –Dr. Hostetter Dermafrac is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment that uses microneedles to stimulate collagen production and cell renewal.

Surgical Solutions “The system has lost track of what it’s there for: to take care of patients.” –Dr. Rooney When other treatments no longer work, it may be time to look into surgery.  Dr. Rooney is a nationally recognized, board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon, specializing in cervical and lumbar spinal fusions, decompressions and non-operative spine care utilizing regenerative medicine/stem cell therapy.

THE COLLECTIVE YOUR URBAN BASECAMP FOR THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL

MORNING WHEN WORK IS NOT INVOLVED?” Chris Wentlandt asks the Experience Ambassador at The Collective. With their focus on well-rounded health and wellness, Chris and his partners at The Collective want people to operate each day out of their passions effectively and with a focus on community. Alex Mondau, The Collective’s Community Ambassador, showed us around the gorgeous, award-winning designed space, modeled after the Strait of Juan de Fuca, while explaining the collective’s main goals: 01 | To build community: to meet people different than you and bond over shared passions    02 | If good people come together, good things happen. 03 | Have a fun place to meet, hang out and stay. With the gourmet restaurant, incredible workspace and friendly staff, The Collective meets all these goals and more. Two main spaces combined make up this Urban Basecamp. 26

THE COLLECTIVE

(CON TI N U ED)

The first is a Day + Night Bar called High Tide. It’s full of productivity spaces for work, music bungalows for smaller meetings or to try your hand at guitar, counter and table service dining, ping-pong and board games—endless ways to power through your day, whatever it may be. There’s also a stage where local musicians perform and partner with nonprofits to continue engagement with the Seattle community. The second space, adjacent to the restaurant and work area, is where you can enjoy a respite from emails and conference calls at Alpenglow. Here you will find a room full of hanging chairs, lounges, a hammock garden, a rock climbing area and spa-quality showers. The possibilities to explore and engage your mind and body are endless. Want to work out some stress and tension? Spend a midday break on the bouldering wall where you can try different routes on your own, or stop by one of the climbing clinics to help you get the gist. The artist-in-residence lives here, and the space also offers yoga classes, running clubs and evening events such as music and poetry nights. “One member met an investor and a new climbing buddy all in the same place, and that’s exactly what kind of interactions we hoped would happen here," Alex says. The team whose concept was brought to life after years of discussions over ski slopes and beers wanted to take the youthfulness inside of all of us and give it permission to play. The possibilities are endless when it comes to how to spend your time here; allowing you to go from work meetings, strategy sessions  and a delicious meal to exercise, meditation and a new friend. Here you can focus not only on work but also a holistic and healthy way to spend your day from start to finish—including massages that become available on Wednesdays to give you that midday boost!

PURE BARRE CLASSES OFFER SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AS THE NEW YEAR GETS UNDERWAY, IT IS A TIME WHEN WE ALL BEGIN TO WALK OUT OUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS, PARTICULARLY WHEN IT COMES TO FITNESS. With so many options out there, it can be intimidating to wade through all the different workout classes and gyms. If you are new to fitness or starting back up again after a break, you are probably asking yourself, “Where do I begin?” If you’re in the Puget Sound area, Pure Barre should be at the top of your list. In fact, you may already have a friend, or several, who belong to the Pure Barre Washington community that is currently 24,000 members strong. Although physical wellness is the goal, one thing that sets Pure Barre WA apart from other workout classes is the sense of community. Owner Sami Sweeney says her favorite aspect of her job is “building and fostering a community that supports others and teaches people self-love.” 32

Tim created R3Bar Alpha Pro to get our bodies moving and functioning just as they were originally designed to be.  And although inspired by his experience as an athlete, don’t let that turn you off from trying it.  Tim's definition of an athlete is allencompassing. He says an athlete is “...being comfortable in the state of discomfort.  Maximizing yourself and your confidence until it’s so high you can share it with others while allowing others to be comfortable to open up and share their gifts with you.”  Isn’t something we all can aspire to? R3Bar Alpha Pro is one way of getting us there.

MASTER YOUR ATHLEISURE STYLE WITH HELP FROM THE STYLISTS AT TRUNK CLUB

44

Bellevue Lifestyle | January 2019

WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH AND FITNESS TRENDS, KEEPING UP WITH THE EVER-CHANGING INFORMATION THAT’S OUT THERE CAN BE DIFFICULT. “This one move will change your legs forever;” “You’ll never eat these foods again after you read this story;” or, our favorite, “A glass of wine a day can help you live longer.” When you’re busy juggling the latest workout app craze or cleaning out your refrigerator only to find out a week later that those items are good for you again, it can get overwhelming. So, when you want a break from it all but don’t want to give up feeling sporty, take the trends from your yoga mat to your closet instead and stock up on athleisure wear. As the stylists at Trunk Club, a Nordstrom Company, put it, athleisure isn’t necessarily about working out—it’s designed for a lifestyle. Incorporating chic, comfy silhouettes with sporty pieces gets you through the day with a fashionable vibe you’ll want to sport—no pun intended—on the regular! For more style tips and to get your own trunk today, visit TrunkClub.com.


01

B A SI C U P G R A D E If a fuss-free outfit is what you’re looking for, keep it simple! The Trunk Club stylists recommend faux-leather leggings and a scoop-hem tank as an easy way to take the essentials up a notch. Finish off your look with a lightweight jacket, a baseball cap and a backpack with unique detailing for just the right amount of edge.

02

E A SE D U P If you’re looking to reflect your laid-back outlook but need to appear put-together, consider pairing a sporty logo tank with cropped wide-leg pants. Pro tip: Keep your outfit fresh with pieces in a cool, earth-tone color palette, and then bring it all together with trendy accessories with unique detailing.

03

BOLD COMFORT Your favorite athletic pieces, like sports bras, can be repurposed by wearing them under a sheer, oversized tunic. Be mindful of your proportions, though. Avoid frumpiness by pairing it with fitted joggers, and complete the look with a stand-out bag and sneakers.

“[Having Lakelyn] was a complete 180, and now every time I have a kid it switches in a different direction—in a good direction,” he continues. “My mindset 100 percent switched when we had Lakelyn. And when we had Trice. And then a third time when we had Violet—in good directions. It’s made me more well-rounded. Balance is hard; to be the best at anything, you can’t really be balanced. Now I’m trying to be the best father and husband I can be. It’s a good challenge; it’s fun.” Rich found some of that seemingly unattainable balance through his transition team competitions, which have allowed him more of an opportunity to think about training while he’s training and to not think about training while he isn’t. “I get to be present in my life,” he says. “[In individual], even when I was doing other things, I was still thinking about what I needed to do, what I was missing out on. “Competing as an individual for me, I got burnt out,” he continues. “It’s been fun the last couple of years to be able to compete with a team. You push harder when you know somebody else is counting on you, and seeing how hard they push and what they sacrifice makes you want to do the same for them.” Outside of the gym, Rich now spends much of his time using his experience as a CrossFit champion and exercise science degree from Tennessee Tech creating online programming for his gym, CrossFit Mayhem, which is located on Rich Froning Way.

“Winning championships is great, but it’s like the next year somebody else wins...I enjoyed that, but I don’t want that to be what defines me. I want to be known as a good husband, a good father.” Among them are Mayhem Compete, a program for those beginning to take competition seriously or who want to take their fitness to the next level; Mayhem Masters, a program for competitive athletes ages 35-70; What’s Rich Doing, a program offering exactly what Rich is doing every day; Mayhem 60, a complete 60-minute workout for anyone with a garage gym; and M30, a short 30-minute workout designed for someone who wants to work out at home or travels with no access to equipment. Looking toward the future, Rich is in pursuit of moving forward. “Winning championships is great, but it’s like the next year somebody else wins so it’s always different,” Rich says. “I enjoyed that, but I don’t want that to be what defines me. I want to be known as a good husband, a good father. Moving forward [is important] for sure—not getting caught up in one thing that’s stuck—you’ve got to always be thinking about what’s next and what [you] need to do to grow as a person.” For more information about CrossFit Mayhem, access to Rich’s online programs or the opportunity to train alongside him in Cookeville, visit CrossFitMayhem.com.
