Why You Should Ditch the Classes and Pick Up Some Weights

I was walking into the gym today, and happened to walk past a giant class of people doing an group fitness class. Those classes are always packed to the brim! That is mainly because we have amazing instructors that teach those classes, and partly because people might not know what to do on the weight floor, and what weight lifting can do for them. I really like classes and I think they do add a lot of value in helping people reach their fitness goals. I know they were a huge part of my … [Read more...]

Being an Athlete and Failing Gloriously

Growing up I tried hard at every sport and failed gloriously. Like the time I head butt the ball in soccer and managed a nose bleed that would have made a professional boxer proud. Or the year I came in last at track, at pretty much every practice and meet. Possibly the best, was when I jumped on the vault at gymnastics and sent myself hurdling through the air head first into a very solid piece of equipment. Yep, that was me. Ah yes, this was me in 9th grade. about 14 years old. Oh I know, … [Read more...]
