You are all taking this stuff waaaaaayyyy too seriously. Lighten up, people! Lately, I run into people and we explore the topic of fitness. Inevitably, it follows that I listen to a crazy and regimented routine that makes me not only want to run mad, but slap the silly…um…into them. Literally. I almost want to throw […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I don’t usually encourage political banter during my training sessions. In fact, I will often point out that politics serve only to divide the client/trainer relationship. However, I was recently reading a news website and fell upon an article that explains Donald Trump’s views on exercise… And…I can’t not respond…I just can’t! From the article […]Continue Reading...

This is the kind of winter that makes even the toughest ‘winter lovers’ fatigued. It is the kind of winter that a shovel can’t haul the snow and it breaks. Freezing rain turns the road into a black ice rink. Plunging temps can cause frostbite in a mere few minutes. And…the kids are at home […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
