  1. Hit a Home Run for Life: Keep Moving!

    Barb Markelz is one of those people who personify the belief that movement is the key to healthy, happy living. We couldn’t agree more!

  3. Where Were You in ’82?

      It’s been two generations since fitness became part of the broader culture, but most of us still don’t exercise regularly.

  4. Volunteering Is Good for Your Body and Soul

    When Pat Santilli moved to a new town in her 60s, she quickly visited the local animal shelter to volunteer.

  6. How to Overcome Negative Self-Talk and Soar

  8. You Say You Don’t Have Time for Your Health?

    Everything we do is an investment, and not just financially. You know this. You’ve been around long enough to know that if you put in the effort to achieve a goal, then you’re more likely to approach it than if you do nothing. If you save a percentage of your paycheck every month, then you’ll […]

  9. Couples Who Sweat Together Stay Together

    There are two kinds of couples when it comes to fitness. Those who work out together. And those who don’t. Which kind of relationship are you in? There are pros and cons for each, of course – and it’s entirely up to you. But since it’s the month of Valentine’s Day, right now we’re going […]
