Home Workout: Gliding Disc (or Hand Towel!) Boot Camp

I love using the gliding discs in my boot-camp classes, but my clients and students don't love them because the discs literally kick their butt. Still, I had to develop a gliding disc boot-camp workout for all my frugal exercisers that really want to get in shape. If you don't have gliding discs, use a hand towel (if you have tile or wood floors) or a plastic frisbee (if you have carpet). And then get ready for a cheap, intense workout. ...more
Thanks for the article.  I plan to try it since I have my own gliders.more

Despite My Fear, I'll Be Cheering at the Boston Marathon Finish Line

Editor's Note, 4/16/14: One suspect is in custody after two backpacks left near this year's finish line yesterday were detonated safely. This post was written before those events were reported. The marathon is on Monday. We're having the anniversary of last year’s bombing and subsequent days of confusion and unknowing and “shelter-in-place." The rehashing of all of it has been going on for weeks. I don’t know what TV and local newspapers are doing. I do know that our local NPR station, WBUR, has had nonstop talk of it, at least in the mornings. I know there are art projects and documentaries and Sports Illustrated did a photo shoot at the finish line last Saturday....more

Whatever happened to Will Power?

By most accounts, I appear to have Will Power. After all, it's 5:34 a.m. as I begin typing this. My alarm went off at 4:30 on Good Friday, a religious holy day, a holiday from work, and I am typing rapidly because I am leaving for the health club in 10 minutes. (Although truth be told, I only got up at 4:30 because it was preset on my alarm clock, and it was easier to get up than to change the clock.)...more
