Gymnastic Wooden Rings - What & Why?

Maximum versatility Before the creation of the TRX trainer , gymnastic rings were the one tool that could provide both a newbie and the most advanced athlete a way to do pushups, rows, dips and more.  All that is needed is a solid support to hang them from.  A wall mounted pullup bar  or a squat rack with upper bar works well, but anything that can hold your body weight can work.  Ring workouts will intensely challenge your stabilizer muscles and your core so it is...

Don't Skip Leg Day

Not a fan of deadlifts or squats? Running, or sprinting will help build strong leg muscles as well. Last month I wrote a blog about training splits and it sparked a conversation amongst my friends because I forced them to read it. We talked about our splits, the pros, the cons and everything in between - mostly trying to convince each-other the split we followed was the best. During the conversation, a friend mentioned his new training split.   His exact words, "Chest and...

Do you even lift? The benefits of PowerBlocks and Weight lifting

I, James Newman, the CEO of Fitness Town have been using PowerBocks ( believe or not ) since their inception over 20 years ago.

Set of Hex Dumbbell’s 5 to 50 with a Dumbbell rack and a bench and an exercise bike. I was informed the gym had to go….

Working out with an injury or two.

So it's been a few weeks since my last post.  My arm is still playing up and it seems I need surgery to correct a dislocated radius bone in my right arm.  It's been depressing watching my clothes get baggy and my belly getting larger over the last few weeks.  It's amazing how fast you can get out of shape. I can now relate to people who haven't worked out for an excess amount of time due to an injury, and can see hand's on how easy it is to slip into the world of becoming another North American...
