Keep Swinging for the Fence I hope you all have been keeping fit throughout 2016. Now, if you are one of those people who wished they did more, for a myriad of reasons, you have tomorrow to start again! Fortunately, there are a number of online tools, apps, and posts that can help you sort it all out. My favorite is working with certified coaches, or certified personal trainers (CPT). Additionally, for me as a CPT, I have been in the company of first rate pros. That usually leads directly to their Facebook (FB), App, or blog site.
