Living an Active Lifestyle

During the week, Dr. Ridgel is a family physician dedicated to treating patients of all ages. When he’s outside the office, you’ll usually find him practicing what he preaches by staying active.

Dr. Ridgel and his wife Angie have traveled several interesting locations to go hiking and biking. From bike trips through Death Valley to hiking through the Grand Canyon and the Amazon jungle, Dr. Ridgel focuses on turning trips into opportunities to stay active and take in incredible sights.

Dr. Ridgel doesn’t have to be out on the road to stay active, however. He and his wife take full advantage of Cleveland’s gorgeous Metroparks for biking, hiking, and other healthy activities. Dr. Ridgel is also a big fan of flying kites, even competing in some local stunt kite competitions. In addition to counseling you on your health, he may even give you a few pointers on flying kites.

Taking Advantage of Local Food

When you live an active lifestyle like Dr. Ridgel, you’ll need the right fuel to keep your body going. Just like with the Metroparks, Dr. Ridgel is a huge fan of utilizing what the Cleveland area has to offer for your food. Locally-sourced foods are non-processed, fresh, and delicious, making them great options for whatever you’re planning for dinner. Dr. Ridgel is also a big fan of the local restaurant scene for when it’s time for a night out.
