It has a way of unwinding you, of making you look inward, and give you a sense of calm that last the rest of the day. It doesn... Continue Reading

In Search of the Most Effective Total-Body Fitness?

Last Reply by doysy 1421462149.34 | in Health & Fitness, Hosts & Personalities

People often ask me how I incorporate fitness into my everyday life. Well, I simply choose the path of more resistance! By that I mean walking on an unstable surface instead of a flat one; taking the stairs not the elevator; standing over sitting; running over walking; walking fast instead of ambling; sitting before lying; lunging deeper than squatting. This simple philosophy helps my body stays trim, toned, and strong. But in reality, energy actually follows a path of least resistance so when actually choosing a fitness regimen I always prefer to find tools and systems that incorporate my w... Continue Reading
