Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

Everyone has a favorite: a favorite place to eat; a favorite place to hang out; a favorite movie; a favorite song, and so on.  Even when it comes to exercise, we all have a favorite: a favorite piece of equipment, a favorite move, or even a favorite type of exercise.  There is certainly nothing wrong […]

The Fine Line Between Pleasure and Pain

Never have there been two words when paired together that can elicit either feelings of fear and enjoyment or both at the same time.  For most, these two words are polar opposites. For others, they are one in the same.  Before exercise science was introduced to avid gym goers, […]

Just Make it Go Away!!!

Saddle bags. Love handles. Wavy arms. Pot bellies.  No, these are not accessories to a fine wardrobe. You won’t find them in any anatomical chart or medical dictionary either.  Yet most people you meet would know exactly what you are talking about when you mention any one of them.  In fact, they’re not really items […]
