    Did you know Hudsonville has both paved and unpaved trails for walking, hiking, biking, and more? The great news is the trails can be accessed from common areas around town. The Elmwood Trail (which has a trailhead in the parking lot of Hulst Jepsen Physical Therapy Hudsonville) and the Hudsonville Nature Center Trail are two […]

    New Year, New You?

    January 20, 2022

    New Year, New You? It’s January, again, that time when we all determine that we will do better, exercise more, eat healthier, learn a new skill, and grow as people.

  • Everybody Squat!

    Everybody Squat!

    December 18, 2018

    The squat is known as the king of exercise, and for good reason, as squatting activates numerous muscles in the body. Stop for a moment and think about the last time you did a squat (and I’m not talking about just for exercise). You probably did at least a partial squat to sit down to […]
