Remember when you decided you wanted to get in shape for the first time? And after two minutes, your head started pounding and your heart felt like it was going to jump out of your chest? Yeah. That's what working out in an AirFit studio feels like.
I fear for the future of our nation's bodybuilders. The cards are stacked against them. They must suffer through one unfair disadvantage after another.
In 2011, my middle-school son came to me and said he wanted to attend a football summer camp at De La Salle. I asked what was De La Salle. I could see my son wanted to go with every ounce of his being. The school was an hour and a half drive from our house.
I try to live a healthy, well-balanced life, not just for me, but for them. I hope they don't have to experience these struggles -- instead, I hope they'll have a better starting point than the one I had when it comes to living a balanced life of food and fitness.
There is nothing more upsetting to a runner than suffering an injury. Weeks, months, and even years of training and fitness can be jeopardized by a slip on the ice, a turn of the ankle, or a chronic overuse injury. Here are some simple ways you can avoid injury and stay sane.
So, as I was making my morning rounds at the Madison Square Club this morning, I saw a couple of things that inspired me to write this impromptu blog....
I see words as one of the most important tools in pursuing a healthy life. Discovering words that can help you on both your fitness and emotional journey is a quick and easy way to reshape your life. Here are five simple words that can sculpt not only your day, but also someone else's.
On the whole, this playlist compiles a healthy mix of new tunes, fresh takes on recent favorites, and a few curve balls. So, there should be plenty of songs here to keep you moving and a few to keep you guessing.
I could definitely feel the skipping, cone-weaving and plank crawls. My dog, Ted, on the other hand, cruised through it effortlessly. Maybe it helps to have two extra legs.
Skydiving is the best high you'll ever have or had, and there's no down side. I have to correct that statement. Driving home from San Diego to Los Angeles, no matter what time it is -- not exactly a high. The next day after skydive, I'm walking 10 ft. off the ground and my energy is at an all-time high.
Please follow along as I give you a first person perspective on photographing Maria as she works out at the gym. My goal is to show you exactly how I work on a photo shoot.

Your body is your vessel. You fuel it and it fuels you. What you put in, you get out. What you eat today for lunch and every single day for the next 10, 20 and 30 years will directly affect your how comfortable you live and your ability to do the things that make you happy.

In the mid-eighties the company I worked for decided they wanted to keep their employees in tip-top condition. With that in mind they built a fitness center right in our building.

The only caveat was that in order to join the fitness center you had to be fit; each employee had to pass a physical.
Find a routine that works for you. Don't get mad at yourself if you miss a day. Just observe how you feel on the days with the super-routine and the days without it. Start your day on the right foot, and the momentum will carry you to better places.
