I know I’m not alone because every class description I read gloats how, “you’ll crawl out of this class!”, or, “this class will kick your butt!”. These are appealing notions because we feel when we are trashed after a workout, or so sore the next day

    Many people you speak to who exercise on a regular basis will wax lyrical about rest days and how important they are. Those who are relatively new to exercise and perhaps weightlifting would likely feel that they can go on forever and those who have regular rest days are simply wimps.

    Going The Distance

    It’s a pleasure to spend time with you guys and explain how my approach to personal training is helping more people get active. I think it’s important for me to say I am not on a mission to change the face of personal training! I train my clients both in person and via Skype, and I believe they both have their merits.
