  1. Sarah's Health & Fitness Blog #8

    It occurs to me that I tend toward the exercise equipment that allows me to sit down, such as the recumbent bike, the recumbent cross trainer, and recumbent elliptical, and when I started thinking about this, I realized why. One of my jobs—I have three jobs—requires me to be on my feet six hours a day. I work at a bookstore, part-time, and I shelve books, climb ladders, make displays, help customers, all on my feet, never sitting down.

So, it makes sense that I like sitting-down kind of fitness equipment, and I’ve been testing them out for over a month now, trying to decide which one to buy, blogging about the ins and outs of different kinds of equipment.

  2. Top of the Morning - Exercise Ideas for the Morning

    Waking up and working out. There is no better time to exercise and get your daily fitness routine in.

You may be thinking, "How in the world did we go from coffee not being the

Our staff is comprised of professionals from across the world that specialize in health and fitness.

For that reason, elliptical machines are now more popular than treadmills, for the first time ever. Meanwh
