(CARLSBAD, CA) – You’re sniffling, sneezing, and taking Nyquil to sleep at night. Your ankle is aching from a misstep in kickboxing class last week. Your fatigue is unbearable, as your fibromyalgia has kicked into high gear. Should you exercise? Or should you take a breather? That is the question.
(CARLSBAD, CA) – It’s a typical Friday night. You meet your friends at a trendy restaurant, catch a flick at the local theater, and lounge in a nearby coffee shop listening to acoustic artists. It seems harmless. The only problem is the cheese fries that you split at the restaurant for an appetizer, the buttered popcorn that you passed back and forth down the aisle at the movies, and the cheesecake that you nursed alongside your cup of decaf at the café.
(CARLSBAD, CA) – The sun, the sand, the surf, and the travel agents are ready. It’s summer, and it’s time for your annual vacation. Too bad that usually means a two-week hiatus from physical activity and fitness.
(CARLSBAD, CA) – The school bell has rung for the final time this year. The kids are home. You have a few ideas to keep the kids fit, but it’s hard to compete with cartoons, MySpace, and Nintendo. Obesity rates among children are reaching epidemic proportions, due in large part to a sedentary generation of kids. So, how can you keep your kids moving this summer?
(CARLSBAD, CA) – The Summer Olympics are here. It’s time for team spirit, individual determination, amazing feats of athleticism, and for most of us, hours logged in front of the television. Since traveling to Beijing probably isn’t on the agenda, we get into the Olympic spirit by cheering on the athletes from our living room sofas. And who knows? Maybe watching the best athletes in the world compete in every sport imaginable will inspire us to improve our own levels of physical fitness.
