Shiers, thanks for the crazy hard core madness today. Well done managing 25 of us at War and Peace while still kicking our butts. My postpartum baby bell will be gone in no time with your sweat training skills. You rock!
I spent the first hour of my morning reading through your page, and then had to pull myself away to get the day started. AWESOME resource! Thanks Brian :)
Someone's been reading!
Sweat Shoppers (Camille Ramsey, Nadia Geller, Kate Folb, and Melissa Sohn) after the WeSpark Universal Studios 5K. Can you spot the "bandits"? (hint: they run for free because the race was sold out)

MEDITATION HELPS SENIORS DECREASE DISEASE MARKERS: A brand new UCLA study showed that 8 weeks of meditation decreased gene inflammation, a key marker for heart attack, stroke, and Alzheimer's. Check out the next UCLA MAPs Meditation class at the Sports Center beginning 9/11: www.Aligned-Mind.com
DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE COMMERCIALS! Powerade has 200 calories and 50 GRAMS OF SUGAR per bottle. You'd be better off drinking chocolate milk during a workout!
ALL THE FLAVOR NONE OF THE FAT!!! This new product is a new fave at the Shiers household: POWDERED PEANUT BUTTER! Just add water to mix or add to a shake. Ridiculously delicious!
COULD WEIGHT TRAINING BE AS GOOD FOR YOUR HEART AS CARDIO? Apparently so, according to new research. But, there's a catch: you have to lift weights heavy enough to make your muscles burn and fail (muscular failure). Short of that, you need both weights and the treadie.
