I am a football fan as much as the next person. College football is my sport and Michigan is my team (Go Blue) But the reality is that all the socializing that goes along with it can be detrimental to your health and waist line. So I don't do it. NFL and College Football are on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That is over 50% of the week. For many people each game involves a drink or two at home, a sports bar or at the stadium. Alcohol consumption of more than 1 serving, more than 1-2 per week will surely give you a gut, especially if you are drinking beer.
Before taking my first Tabata class, I Googled ‘Tabata’ to find out exactly what I had signed up for. To be honest I initially thought it was one of those dance-exercise classes. But thankfully, there is no dancing involved.
Most of us will push ourselves only so far when exercising alone. When you’re in a class, you feel the energy, the drive, the collective relief when your instructor says “get some water” or, the shared angst when the instructor says “that wasn’t your peak.”
You know walking into Heather’s kettlebell classes that they’re going to be good when you see several HG instructors taking the classes too. The kettlebell classes are popular and book up fast so be sure reserve your spot early. Classes are just 30 minutes so you’re in and out before you know it!
PiYo – while it sounds like the brainchild of an instructor at HG, it has actually been practiced for years. Who knew?! PiYo is a combination of Pilates and yoga and gives the best of both disciplines.
If you are anything like me, when you read this class name you may wonder how in the world do you kickbox with kettlebells?! Well, that was exactly what I wondered before taking Jen Neumann’s class. As someone pretty experienced with kettlebell classes I was more than a little curious when at the beginning of class, Jen told us to get two kettlebells of the same size. That’s when I knew this would be a challenging class.
Close your eyes and imagine Heather as a yoga instructor ... did you picture her doing yoga with kettlebells set to loud rock music? If you did, that class is called Kettlebell CORE. It’s just that and more. If ‘namaste’ is the mantra for yoga, ‘aur karo,’ which means ‘do more’ should be the mantra for Kettlebell CORE.
Do you hate winter? Does your body crave the effects of the sun baking on your skin? If you have answered yes to the above questions, then you are at the right place.I hate winter and wish I could chase the sun as it moves between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. So... allow me to dream for a moment.Dreaming and Dreams

When you think about the summer months, you probably immediately imagine swimming in the pool or trips to the beach. As fun as those activities might be, they require a lot of time out in the hot sun.
The sun can certainly be pleasurable, but potentially problematic UVA and UVB rays can create serious sunburns if you spend too much time outside.
