For all you caregivers out there!
When you unexpectedly become a caretaker, it's easy to get sucked into the myth of selflessness and "bearing up." I'm here to say that you'll also be pissed off, sad, overwhelmed and guilt-ridden.

What small steps have you taken that led to big changes?
By now, you probably know our mantra of “Small Steps lead to Big Changes” if you’ve read our past posts or attended any of our conference presentations. This phrase applies to more than exercise, of course. Any part of your life that you want to change can probably adhere to this principle of incremental steps.

Smoother than Marvin Gaye. 
Nearly every work morning I make a protein shake as I fly out the door to teach. Ninety-nine times out of 100, I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in that shake.

Apparently the spa industry is doing more than well. The top trends cover why and what.

Is this the year you are a fitness trendsetter? Or maybe a jetsetter to spas and wellness retreats.
How is your new year starting out? More to the point, how do you want your year to progress? More sizzle, less fizzle? One way to maintain an upwards trajectory is to stay up with the latest and greatest. That includes seeing whether your 2015 goals are part of the top 10 fitness trends.

Even though I am a "fitness instructor", with seven classes per week (and the number to increase in this year), I need to do a better personal job on "nutrition" and "weight loss"---and that will happen in 2015.

Pools are great places to exercise for people with arthritis or RA. But what if you don't have a pool yet need/ want a joint friendly workout? Other options --
Got sore joints but want to work out? A reader with Felty's syndrome (a rare form of rheumatoid arthritis) as us what she can do to restart an exercise program after a 5 year hiatus. Her bones ache and body talks back to her, but she does have options.
