The FSSA Healthy Lifestyle Market Place
Many of our members are in fantastic shape and still compete at the highest level in sports so they are often asked about their "secrets" to a successful and injury-free season. Some of their answers can be helpful, amusing and confusing so we decided to list a few of our anecdotal favorites here. In the case of Garden Fresh Salsa, the recent move by most boomers to find more healthy alternatives to common grocery store fodder gave reason for Jack Aronson, a long-time major softball player from Ferndale, MI, to convert his restaurant to a full-time production facility. Now, Jack's Garden Fresh Salsa can be found in Publix, Costco, and most retail outlets across the USA. We highly recommend Garden Fresh products and especially their all-natural salsa made by Jack "Big Salsa" Aronson. Visit their website here.

Extra Innings Documentary
Follow a Major Senior Softball team on a quest
The Baby Boomers of today are a new breed of "old guys" who are not ready for retirement or the rocking chair. The Extra Innings Documentary film is about a group of senior softball players coming together to chase a dream of winning the World Masters Championship, the highest level of competition, in Las Vegas, Nevada this fall.
The film crew has followed the team to the Dominican Republic and Detroit, Michigan charity events and has great footage to share with us.
We occasionally find healthy life-style products we would like to share with our members. These products are thoroughly tested by members and given our strongest recommendation. In the case of Garden Fresh Salsa, our own Jack "Big Salsa" Aronson is the purveyor!
