You know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good? From boosting your mood and self confidence in that little black dress to improving your sex life and even work life, exercise is a great way to improve your overall experience on a day to day basis.
Last night as I watched our Olympians race my thoughts went behind the scenes. Their drive, what they give up - but most importantly what makes them different from the rest of us. I believe it takes heart and an amazing amount of support. The majority of our Olympic athletes are the youth of today. Not seasoned college athletes who turned pro. Some of their stories are really amazing. One athlete races for himself and his handicapped brother. Our female snowboarder is deathly afraid of heights.
Good Afternoon! Today I would like to talk about High Intensity Interval Training (or HIIT, as it’s called in the fitness world). HIIT, when added to your workout program, is the best way to blast fat away.

Over the weekend, I attended a Jam session in o'Fallon. During the Master Class the instructors performed to Rock. That was different, I loved it. Zumba lovers out there, here's a question. Who would love to take a Zumba Class with A portion the music being upbeat rock?
Many of us like to walk for exercise. I love going outside in the fresh air to get my cardio workout. I I've been walking a lot on my treadmill lately with the cold temps, and without my 75 pound lab dragging me down the street, I'm able to focus more on my body while I'm walking.
Fall is my favorite season, but the change in weather and daylight can throw your health and fitness routine out the window. Don't let the cooler season get the best of you. Lazy days of Summer are behind us and the busy hustle and bustle of Fall is here! Between work, the holidays, grocery shopping, errands, etc., it's easy to push exercise to the bottom of the list. It should be just as much a priority as any other appointment you have. Put exercise on the calendar!
