I picked up the April, 2012 copy of Fitness Magazine and quickly noticed an article entitled “Health Lies Trainers Tell.” I was instantly intrigued as I flipped to page 88 and noticed a lie that read, “The more limber you are, the better” I have heard from yoga teachers and fitness professionals over and over […]Continue Reading...

Geeking it out is fun! Let me get out those geeky glasses once again… The Energy Balance Equation was featured in my latest IDEA Fitness Journal. This concept is to solve that complex “riddle of the sphinx” mathematical formula about weight loss and exercise/diet. Since Americans are more and more unhealthy by the day and by statistical data, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Something I want to try… How to burn calories…fast? I get asked all of the time about this, and if all you want is a quick workout to shed a few hundred calories, here are my favorite moves: 1) Jump Rope.

After all, bootcamp workouts or even Pilates don’t even use equipment! (…And both of those workouts can send even me into shivers…) So, I was skeptical about […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Team Jacob or Edward…? It’s a frenzy! Handsome, strong, and looking for everlasting love…That’s the Twilight series vampire. Any guy who would attempt the vampire act in real life would be slapped with a restraining order, but it is somehow charming on Edward.
