Oh no! Americans are getting heavier and less active!

A recent government survey shows that Americans betwen the ages of 40-74 are heavier and less active..compared to 1988! Only 43% exercise 3 times a week (vs 53%), 36% are obese (compared to 28%), and only 26% eat at least 5 servings of fruit & veggies daily - (compared to 42%!) Why is this happening? Think about what you eat and do during a week's time.... No need to wait to New Year's Eve... make changes NOW!

Use a rainy day to re-think your fitness plan!

Days like today make people just want to curl up with a good book; and "veg". Fine, your body just might need the rest! While you rest, think about what is working for you, and what isn't...from your personal life to I recently met with someone that has been doing the same workout routine for years... OMG! Change is good - and necessary to achieve your highest fitness potential. The exercise that you hate to do are most likely the ones you need the most! Check out a new group class (we have a ton at Rock); try a new sport... meditate! Take care and keep moving! Val
