Pickleball and Piranha

I play paddle and racket sports when I'm not pumping iron. When it's hot out I break a pretty good sweat and work really hard when I come home my clothes smell like ammonia.

Are we really more fit than average?

We've all heard the statistics that something like 40 percent of Americans are either overweight or obese, and I've heard even higher than that. It's probably a nice ego boost for many of us, thinking we're more fit than the majority of men and women. But is this misleading? Technically anyone...

Personal trainer advice

I started lifting weights about 3 years ago at age 42. I got hooked. I got a personal trainer to move from machines to free weights and learned a lot, mostly dumbbell stuff though. However, my trainer wouldn’t show me deadlift and squats due to my age. Said that was a “young man’s game and...
