The Age Old Question or the Old Age Question?

By Becky Larson, Each year I get closer to the big 3-0 I become more aware I’m entering a time in my life where age can become an issue. I’ve noticed I now sometimes cringe when people ask how old I am.  We frequently hear “age is just a number” but is that really […]

Runners Corner: I Confess, I Obsess Over My Pace

I confess, I obsess over my pace. Iai??i??m not going fast enough. Iai??i??m going too fast. How will I ever PR in my next half?

Abs, Abs, Abs! (With Video)

By Kristin Walton, Before I go start my rant, there is one thing you must remember: abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym. This means that when Ms. Britney Spears said all she does for her abs are crunches, she was lying! Yes, it is very important to work your core, but […]

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 […]

Use the Empty Space!

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. Hipsters and Emos alike call Midtown home as […]

Midtown Musings: The day after the breakup

Midtown Musings, Dec. 28, 9:06 p.m.: The day after a dude breaks up with a girl is way more sad than the day after a girl breaks up with a dude. The girl who just got dumped is spread out over the coach in her sweats, guzzling a Big Gulp and pounding down Cheetos. […]

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 […]
