First week of training is in the books! I was on vacation in Memphis, Tennessee and it was around 105-110 degrees everyday and in the 90s at night! I had every reason to believe that no running was going down for me...but the first morning I was there I woke up with no alarm clock and had running on my brain! I sat on my ...
Anxiety And Myths, What Is Holding You Back?
Submitted by: Tim Joseph
The following is what I have learned from years of trying to accomplish my own fitness goals.

Time for a Rock & Roll Encore
Submitted by: Ramona
I'm doing it again! That's right...training for another half marathon! The timing is right, too. My weight loss efforts have been at a standstill for about 2 months and I've even gained weight! Boooo!!! So I'm hoping the extra miles I'll be getting in weekly will turn things around. I have a goal to lose 20 lbs. At first I ...
These Shoes Were Made For….
Submitted by: Ramona
It's my second training run and it actually went really well! 4 miles today and I felt strong afterwards. So strong that I decided to take a Zumba class after my run. You see...while I was on a little "run-cation" I really got into other forms of exercise. I was getting my cross train ON! ;-) Zumba, by far, turned out to be ...

Hey - at least I am honest. Plan to participate in an ab challenge this month with Strong Like Susan. Stay tuned as I post my progress and gulp~measurements!
Weight loss stall
I believe that when taking on a new routine, you follow through on the commitment, and then assess the results after a special period of time. I have been working with my trainer twice a week (give or take skipping some weeks due to other commitments) since April 2011.
I step on the scale and it hasn't moved. I weigh almost the same now as ...

Push Up Variations
I enjoy watching Peter Carvell, Home Fitness Expert, of 6 Pack Abs. I've been watching his challenging videos for well over a year and he keeps things interesting. I bet you noticed I said "watching". I haven't actually tried a specific routine but have done each and every exercise he has showcased on my own in the gym during a variety of ...
New Equipment Madness
Has anyone ventured into their gym lately and seen this thing?
One day I did and was like (^@(*&@^#(@! So brave me (yeah right) decided to jump on. Umm, the thing does not appear to be turned on (none of the lights are on). Oh oh I have to start peddling to get the thing to light up so I can set my workout. After figuring that out, ...

Look what came in the mail – The Bizzy Diet 21-Day Fitness Plan

I must have subscribed to something because I received an email which linked me to this page ...
