How to get the most out of group fitness class

I love my job as a fitness instructor. When I was younger, I would get up early to watch Denise Austin “pump it up” on ESPN. Occasionally I would even do the workouts along with her. But mostly I would watch and wish my life to be like hers. She got paid to work out, and once in a while she got to work out on a Hawaiian beach. She got paid! After 25 years of envious viewing, I’m now living that dream (minus the Hawaiian beach — but I’m not dead yet).

This year I'm thankful for those who helped me find my inner athlete

Thanksgiving wasn’t always my favorite holiday. Growing up, Christmas was always No. 1. Staying up late to watch Christmas specials on TV because there was no DVR, an endless supply of cookies and fudge, presents — what’s not to love! Fourth of July came in at No. 2 mostly because it’s also my birthday. Halloween and Easter tied for third. Thanksgiving fell somewhere between Valentine’s Day and Labor Day — in other words, I hated it. Forced to dress up, smile, and pretend to like Grandma’s “gourmet” asparagus side was a lot of fuss for little payoff ...
