The Best Places to Show Off Your Braces

June 1, 2017

What do Fitness, Orthodontics and National Parks have in common? I recently discovered the answer to this question while on a Kaia FIT run with longtime friend and Kaia Girl, Emily Beglin.

It’s that time of year when we’re all talking about summer plans. Plans for health and fitness to be enjoyed during the good weather, long days of sunlight and plans with the kids being out of school. Local plans and travel plans. Emily was telling me that each year she and her family visits at least one of our National Parks. Summer travel for the Beglin family is limited. This is because Dr. Frank Beglin, of Beglin Orthodontics in Carson City, Dayton, Yerington and Mammoth Lakes and Bishop, is busiest during the summer months. Just like fitness, fun and travel, parents are eager to begin their child’s orthodontic treatment during the summer break from school. We talked about the ease of visiting the multitude of National Parks within driving distance of Northern Nevada.

Part of the fun of visiting the Parks, is filling up your National Parks Passport with stamps from your travels! Be sure to check out the links I’ve put together below about the National Parks closest to us here in Northern Nevada.

Before you do that, check out our #FitSummerSmiles Giveaway!

About Kaia FIT:

Our program philosophy goes much further than just a fitness workout. We designed Kaia to fit into your schedule, and we welcome you to start anytime. Our year-round program includes three yearly BRIKs that we believe are the cornerstones of health & fitness and can be incorporated into our daily lives. By building a solid foundation of strength, endurance, and nutrition during these six-week BRIK programs, we train our bodies and our minds to take on multiple challenges simultaneously. We carry these foundations [or start building new ones!] into our five-week Core sessions (two in between each Brik Boot Camp). Each session is loaded with innovative workouts and nutritional support that are specific to the season.  

The Kaia FIT program is designed to increase your fitness level and/or to get you excited about exercising and eating healthy. Finding camaraderie during these sessions is a vital component to everyone’s success. The women beside you each day feel exactly what you are feeling and give you the motivation to keep you coming back to class.

About Beglin Orthodontics:

Dr. Frank Beglin is Carson City’s Board Certified Orthodontic Specialist trained at one of the world’s preeminent dental and orthodontic residency programs, The Ohio State University. Dr. Beglin is as much an education advocate as a student, participating in school programs and mentoring students. His ultimate goal, though, is encouraging community involvement in local schools. Realizing that his orthodontic practice could be the perfect vehicle to accomplish such, he launched the "Beglin Orthodontics Supporting Local Schools" campaign. He also hosts local schools in his office to attend his, “Mouth Full of Science Academy,” where students learn how their science lessons from the classroom translate into real-life. Additionally, Dr. Beglin sponsors a monthly local non-profit with his #BeglinCares program. Consultations are always free.
