Supporting EVERY BODY with Fitness

I have seen a few Facebook posts as of late about fitness bullies and how our society tends to take a negative and judgmental approach on heavier people while they are exercising and in general.  Having grown up with 2 parents who were quite overweight I can tell you first hand what it is like to feel personally offended on their behalf when people would make comments and assumptions about overweight people being lazy or eating the wrong food and while most of us have some sort of vice, it...

It would seem that less and less people are setting resolutions and it appears that they aren't very affective. So does that mean there is no hope? It sure doesn't, quite the opposite. It means you need to make a lifestyle change and January is a great time to start...

Healthy Holidays: A poem modeled on the night before Christmas

Be sure to check out the video version of this poem here:   'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house Everyone was exercising even the mouse The dumbbells were stacked all in a row Arranged in order from heavy to low The children were skipping, with bright smiling faces Creating natural endorphins with all of their paces Mamma was on the treadmill, favorite song playing loud Papa was on the spin bike, looking at his family so proud When out on the...

New Year’s Resolutions or New Year’s Failures?

By Josh Manuel Another year has gone by and that means another year of making New Year’s resolutions.  “I’m going to exercise more, lose some weight, eat healthier and do what I couldn’t do the year before!

The power of positive self-talk in fitness and in life

There is no such thing as “just a” I recently had the pleasure of listening to Gene Vickers speak at our very own Fitness Town Toastmasters about meeting his hockey idol Bobby Orr .
