Weight, per se, is not a choice. Addressing the variable challenge of weight management with insight, understanding and compassion certainly is. It's a choice we should all be making.
I've long been a stickler for good form when it comes to strength-training exercises, and I've written about it to boot. But I've been a zoned-out runner for as long as I can remember. Now, I'm learning more about what exactly to think about, and the consequences of not doing so.
At this age group, the goal is without a doubt more activity. But because it's also essentially a HIIT workout, which we know burns calories and fat while improving fitness levels, even adults could benefit from a little CrossFit for kids.
There are still going to be times when you overeat junk food when you are feeling down. Don't beat yourself up about it or use it as an excuse to give up all together. Learn from it, focus on what caused it, move on and start again.
At the recent 33rd Annual International Convention and Trade show of IHRSA 2014 in San Diego, I urged my colleagues in a presentation I did to disrupt...
Got 15 minutes? Hit the stairs and knock out these super-effective lower-body firm and burn moves. Even better? Some of these work your upper body, too.
I was getting dressed in the locker room at my gym last week when I overheard a conversation between two ladies about the tough cardio class we had all just barely survived. One lady was in her bra and panties, the other naked, but for a towel. I looked over at them, about to commiserate on the ass-kicking, when I realized the woman in the towel looked familiar.
When you have a goal -- whether it's starting a business or eating healthier or traveling the world -- it's easy to look at someone who is already doing it and then try to reverse engineer their strategy. In some cases, this is really useful. Learning from the experiences of successful people is a great way to accelerate your own learning curve.
I've talked before about our pets' sometimes precarious relationship with technology, but I've recently discovered some pretty neat devices that can a...
"What it comes down to is how hard you push yourself and how you overcome the mental challenge of getting yourself to the gym even when you really don't want to. Consistency leads to results."
The International Health Racquet Sports Association, know as IHRSA, hosted it's annual international convention at the San Diego Convention Center thi...
Incorporate this "move of the day" into your regular exercise regimen or just take a few minutes to give it a try. Each day will be a different move s...
Once question remained: Was I the guy on the Westview track that afternoon? In every picture it was a woman. The time frame of my weight loss story does not fit with the original. I write a lot; that would be very strange if it was about me. Here is my answer.
While these small businesses are the lifeblood of a vibrant city environment, the food choices that many folks make there can pack on the pounds and shorten their lives.
Beauty fascinates me. Modeling fascinates me. And I am blessed to have many beautiful girlfriends -- including a couple who are professional models. O...
Rome is just the result; the bricks are the system. The system is greater than the goal. Focusing on your habits is more important than worrying about your outcomes.
This month's playlist is dominated by club tracks. Fitz & The Tantrums appeared in last month's Top 10 and return this month with the only rock song to make the cut.
It started as a distraction I hated. Then it became an obsession I craved. Then, a passion that carried me through.
Since the groundhog saw his shadow earlier this February, winter hasn't left our presence. Most people start planning their run training soon after th...
So if you told me even five years ago that I would own and run a small business with my husband (in the fitness industry, no less!), I would have spit out my Frappuccino and laughed hard. Really hard. We opened our gym in the East Village in June of 2013. I have never "worked" a day since.
