  1. You Can't Get a Hit Unless You Swing!

    This blog is for all of you individuals who feel like you have no chance of ever getting in shape and being healthy. The main point I want to drive home to you is that you can't score unless you shoot.

  2. Your Treadmill Buying Guide: The Best Commercial Treadmills in 2013!

    Here is our annual report on the best treadmills in the world. This list is comprised of mostly health club quality treadmills. Gym grade (commercial) treadmills are heavier than home treadmills, so gym treads can withstand more pressure and overall wear and tear.

  4. Sedentary Death Syndrome

    Are you sitting yourself to death? Sedentary, seated lifestyles, are terrible for our well being. Many of us have desk jobs and sit for close to 50 hours per week. We have to counter this fully developed and unhealthy pattern of sitting way too much. Making sure you spend at least 30 minutes a day on cardiovascular fitness is a good start, however, you must still remind yourself throughout your day of work that you must get up and walk around for a few minutes. Put a small sticker on your computer screen or phone to serve as a reminder that you must not fall victim to the sedentary lifestyle that is slowly killing millions of American's. If your job really prohibits you from taking a 5 minute break every hour, at least stand at your desk for a few minutes every hour.

But you can change, and it's easier than you think. Whenever you truly consider beginning a new workout plan, you are terrified and excited at the same time. However, your fear will subside as your confidence builds and you will quickly notice yourself transitioning into
