    Have you ever felt so exhausted that all you needed was a good night’s sleep? Everyone has. But have you ever STILL felt exhausted, even after plenty of shut-eye?

  2. How Exercise Boosts Your Metabolism

    You might’ve heard people talk about their metabolism and how it relates to their weight, maybe in statements like these: “I never gain a pound – I guess I just have a high metabolism.” Or: “I keep gaining weight since I turned 40.

    Everyone knows high blood pressure is a killer. It’s the No. 1 cause of heart attacks in the United States, and the most important risk factor for strokes. And we know it’s a bigger problem later in life, afflicting up to 65 percent of people 60 and over. But do you know the best ways […]

  7. What Muscle Means to You after 50

      What does it mean to have muscle? When we were kids, we probably thought of athletes and superheroes. In our 20s, we might have associated muscle with lots of weightlifting in the gym and young men with bulging physiques. But later in life, we need to realize that muscle means more than big biceps.

  9. Top 10 Tips to Enjoy Fitness

    Let’s talk about a few things that are boring. Just for a minute. There’s a long, pointless lecture about an obscure subject, right? And, say, an endless game of Monopoly no one can seem to win.
