Januarians at the gym & the people that hate them.

With only a few days left in 2012, the time is near. JANUARY. But not just January…a group that some of you like to refer to as THE JANUARIANS. You know, the mass of people that purchase a gym membership as part of their New Year’s Resolution and in hordes, flock to their local gym …

You pity my running speed. I don’t.

I am now a half marathoner. Unofficially. Actually, it’s not “unofficial” to me. It wasn’t a nationally or regionally or locally known half marathon. It was my own.

Face to Face: The teacher who called me Precious.

I wasn’t ready to write this post. Not yet. I wasn’t ready for yesterday to happen. But it did. When the time came, I wanted it to play out just as it had in my head a million times over. But this chance meeting came and went, out of my hands and out of my …

OBESE Children…Are the parents responsible? If not, who is?

Hey y’all. 🙂 Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. I had a great reason–I do my fitness work in retail and this was Black Friday week. So you know what I was doing! I’ll have more to say about all of that later. Right now, something a little more juicy appeared that fired me up and I …

Confession: I have no desire to run a race.

Nope. I just don’t. I’m not going to apologize for it. I’m also not going to read your comments and feel pressured into changing my mind, either. And no I’m not sorry. Haha, I also didn’t mean to time this post to come out on the day of the NYC Marathon, but it is what …

Dear Male Customers,

October 11, 2001 It has come to my attention that many of you think I’m not able to successfully do my job as a Certified Fitness Trainer because of my gender. Well, I have been reticent long enough. Let me set you straight. It matters not if you refer to me as gal, girl, girlie, …
