Relationships Should Not Begin Online

By Carlyn Spangler, The commercial for online dating sites love to broadcast the phrase “1 in 5 relationships begin online.” This phrase make you wonder as to why relationships are now beginning in the “viral world” as opposed to face-to-face. I remember the days in school when if you liked someone in your class, […]

Lessons From the Classroom

By Hardeep Sahota, As a teacher, I am asked a lot of questions. The one question I get often, though, doesn’t come from students. It comes from everyone else. What made you get into teaching? My answer remains the same, but the real answer is finally showing itself to me. I became a teacher, […]

Let’s work out your heart AND soul!

By Kristin Walton, Today I was out to breakfast with a few friends from highschool and we were doing the old “remember when” conversation when one of the girls (and one of my boot camp clients who totally kicks butt!) pointed out how much we used to donate to local charities around town. Since […]

By Kristin Walton, Instead of talking about the most obvious areas of the gym and what to use, I’ve decided to focus on the mat area of the gym. The mat or stretching area is usually unused and most often has the best stuff! This is where you can resistance bands, bosu balls (will […]

A Blast from the Past

By Becky Larson, It’s been said time and again that history repeats itself.  As I sat outside a Midtown café this past weekend, I couldn’t help but think how true that really is.  Several of the twenty-somethings that passed by looked like blasts from the past.

Fitness Corner: The Medicine Ball Workout

By Kristin Walton, I’m an advocate for home workouts. As someone who works from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. most days, it’s hard to convince myself to get to the gym after a long day.  Not to mention the fact that it’s free to work out at home! Most times, I work out in […]

V is for Valentine and Vegan

By Danielle Carlson, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. In Finland, Valentine’s Day is called Ystävänpäivä which translates into “friend’s day.” As the name indicates, this day is more about remembering all your friends, not only your loved ones.  In some Latin American countries Valentine’s Day is known as “Día del Amor y […]
