The Office Workout

The Office Workout I recently moved to a different office after working out of my home office for the past several months, so going to an office feels different now.  I have worked out of an office for most of my engineering career, but what I have found out now that I am in this “new” office is that my overall health...

The Holidays

The Holidays Here we go.  It is starting to get cold and we are not going outside as much and to make things worse we have the American holidays which are all built around over-eating and consuming as much candy and fatty food that you can like it is a competition to see who can get the fattest before the new year. To...

I Wish “I Wish, I Wish, I Wish”; I hear this all the time from people when we are talking about getting into shape.  I Wish I had a six pack, I Wish I could just lose 10 pounds, I Wish I was in better shape.

Keep Your Core Tight?

Let’s face it when you first start out doing the exercises you are trying to learn the moves, trying to do them with intensity, trying not to bonk or burn yourself out, and trying to...

You Gotta Stretch

You Gotta Stretch I’ll admit it I fell into the trap of “I’ve been doing P90X for awhile and I know what I’m doing” so that I felt I could just do some workouts and not others. It all started about four or five weeks ago when I started to travel again for work and I was having to work extra hard on my nutrition. ...

Accountability

Accountability How I continue to grow and learn about how to stay healthy and keeping physically active never ceases to amaze me.  When I first started out with P90X I was just trying to survive the hour and hope that I did not bonk or worse throw up.  Now this did not last long and before I knew it I was learning the...

You can decide to stop working out all together and...

Other Activities

Other Activities We all enjoy the Beachbody workouts whether it is P90X, Insanity, One-on-One, Turbo Fire, or any of the other amazing workouts, but when it is summer time and is just so darn nice outside you have to do “other activities” to get your exercise. Don’t get me wrong I still do the Beachbody workouts year...
