Why has the traditional role of a woman changed?

In the UK, only one woman in ten now stays at home to raise a family. This shift is relatively recent. Official figures show stay-at-home mums have dropped by more than a third in the past two decades to a historic low.On the other hand, one stay-at-home dad in 100 brings up his children full-time....more

Fitness Class Accessibility: Which is better ClassPass or Fitmob?

Note: I was not paid or offered any goods or services in exchange for this review. I opted to take advantage of introductory month offers at both ClassPass and Fitmob and decided to share my review here. I love a good workout class. Whether it is boot camp, barre, spinning, yoga, or something different, there is always something about a fitness class that is good for motivating me not only to actually show up to workout but also to challenge me to work muscles I wouldn't normally work if left to my own devices. And there is always something so satisfying about that perfect level of soreness you experience when you got a good workout in. I'm not talking about a debilitating level of soreness but rather that soreness that says "you rocked your workout yesterday and you are on your way to increased strength and stamina!"Workout classes are also great for staving off boredom and allowing you to be flexible in your training. Feeling a little sore after an intense long run? A yoga class might be just the thing you need. Or feeling like you've been too heavy on the cardio? Maybe it's time to throw in a kettle bell class or a boot camp. But seeking out different classes can be a challenge because different classes are usually at different studios with different fee structures. It can get expensive if you want to engage in different workouts at different studios each week. It doesn't usually make sense to take on a package at any particular studio and paying a la carte and spending around $20 per session can bust anybody's budget.  But now there are two new products on the market that make working out at multiple studios a breeze: ClassPass and Fitmob.  ...more
