by JJ Virgin

You probably have a friend who spends hours on elliptical machines reading People Weekly and talking with her on-again/off-again boyfriend. She also swears by her gym’s Tuesday night aerobics class as an excuse to hit the new fro-yo place around the corner, since (according to her) she burns 500 calories in this class...


Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Different than circuit-training or plyometrics, burst-training uses short 30-60 second high-intensity exercise with a slightly lengthier recovery period, usually one-to-two minutes. It’s not easy at first, and not recommended for beginners, but the results are fast and studies are showing that the health benefits are more substantial than just doing regular cardio workouts.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: You may have seen this picture circulating the internet. While I don’t know the authenticity of the two women, in my wellness practice, I see examples of this constantly. Aging does not have to mean infirmary. It’s been scientifically documented that even seniors who are exercising for the first time in their lives can gain muscle tone, strength, and flexibility and reverse disease...

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble:  Zumba has become so popular that an estimated 12,000,000 enthusiasts are enrolled in classes and many more participate at home or in private group settings. Because of its popularity, the company has developed off-shoot programs for varying fitness levels, experience and age. Known as the Zumba “pool party,” Aqua Zumba is one of the newest programs.

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Did you know that most back problems stem from inflexibility and poor movement patterns? I got to spend some time learning Foundation from Eric Goodman while I was in Santa Barbara during 2010. Try these exercises. They work!

Editor´s Note: People love to know how celebrities get their incredible bodies. I often cringe at the information I hear coming from "celebrity" trainers. Ashley here is the real deal. This is a super effective workout for your core. It is excellent that Ashley doesn't leave out important preparation work. Without the proper prep work, exercise can be less effective, not effective at all, or worse, cause injury and pain. The prep work allows you to connect with how your body feels and creates a much better workout all together. Enjoy the workout!

Sure, it’s Valentine’s Day. My older kids, 8 and 5, are all excited as they prepare to hand out fun Valentines to their classmates—and of course, celebrate with parties at school. Restaurants are booked with couples’ reservations—and candies, flowers, and hearts are just about everywhere you look...

They live well into their nineties and often times up break the hundred year mark. Their existence is healthy but the underlying reasons are often cultural. In fact, it’s not just that individuals take care of themselves; it’s a country-wide phenomenon that’s based on lifestyle choices...

My 11 year old daughter and I decided to publish our personal letters to one another after discussing their potential benefit to readers...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Alaxandra Folz takes us on a seven year journey with her daughters food allergies/sensistivities. They finally reached the end goal when her daughter turned 11 years old and they finally got their answers they had been searching for. Grab a kleenex, the dialogue that follows between this mom and daughters letters to each other is profound!

"Your three year old self knew. You knew it was hard to focus, sit still and follow directions. Something inside drove you ten steps ahead and told you to leap outta bounds." ~ Alexandra Folz.

Fitness is my life. Or perhaps I should say that fitness is my paycheck. I am one of those lucky people who get paid to exercise and to exercise other people. I have been a personal trainer and teaching exercise classes since the days of Elaine Powers and Jane Fonda. I am also lucky to say I still love my job...

If you could stop smoking right now, you probably would. If you could stop eating from the vending machine at work, you probably would...


Editor´s Note: Sometimes letting go of a habit that we have been attached to for a long time is much too overwhelming. Dave keeps it simple. How about crowding it out of your life instead?

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
