Simply engaging in water-cooler talk surrounding what one eats and what one does for training is often enough to rustle some feathers. If you're lucky, you might be able to get an eye roll or two. It makes people defensive. Oddly, it's a corner of the mind that forces ignorant sales people, marketing execs, auto mechanics, ...

There are a few key points that I want to discuss when it comes to lunging.The first is the front or back lunge dilemma. People always ask which is better. The conversation should not ...

They like to say, “It’s a big world out there.” While that’s true, and we ought to gather some perspective from outside of our individual bubbles at times. It’s funny to me that it’s often by seeing the world, so to speak, that we can understand the things that are fundamentally true close to home.After having a ...
