Run Like a Kid I have never been a big fan of running.  I think it comes from my being an athlete when I was young and every time you messed up or the team was being punished for not playing well we had to run for what felt like days.

Life in the Fast Lane

Life in the Fast Lane A few weeks ago I wrote an article about how to help take you from the couch to fit in nice easy slow steady steps.  The reason for that was that it seemed that I had a lot of customers “overwhelmed” by all the  changes coming to them at once so I broke it down to help them make progress and stay on...

Exercise and Alcohol, Hand in Hand?

Exercise and Alcohol, Hand in Hand? Just because you’re logging hours on the treadmill and embarrassing Arnold in the weight room doesn’t mean you can put the cast of Jersey Shore to shame in the bar and not have consequences.
