Day Trippin'; Where to Go, What to Do around Metro DC

What is your idea of a perfect spring day? Sipping vino on the Potomac? Sightseeing with map in hand at historic landmarks? Riding adrenaline-pulsing roller coasters? All of these are available here in the mid-Atlantic region within an hour (or two) from home. Decide what mood you're in, fill 'er up and hit the road with a friend, alone or with the whole family in tow.

Staying Fit Locally, Quit Making Excuses

Staying Fit Locally, Quit Making Excuses

It is predicted that, over the course of the present decade, Americans will be looking to spend less money on exercise options and a lot less time to it due to tighter budgets and hectic schedules. Combine that with a mostly unregulated commercial food industry that still relies heavily on inexpensive and low quality resources high in fat, salt and processed additives. Not enough time to move and poor food choices at the ready. This is our nation’s crisis with obesity, which is expected to climb as high as 85%, up from an already disheartening 60%. Prevention is possible, through awareness and a little creativity. While nutrition accounts largely for body fat content, exercise raises metabolism and muscle can fill up space previously occupied by fat cells. It’s a package deal. Making wholesome food choices (yes, it really is that easy—just do it) will give you energy to work burning fat.

For Fitness Resolutions in the New Year, Sport&Health Says Think Reasonable Baby Steps

From Brett West of Live Wire Media Relations:

Among New Year’s Resolutions, consistently each year, increasing fitness – or decreasing weight – is on the Top 10 List of promises Americans make to themselves. Sport&Health, the largest health club company in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area tackles fitness resolutions for the New Year with simplicity to prevent burnout.

Taisha Hayes, personal trainer at Northwest Sport&Health Club, encourages New Year’s “Resolutionists” to take baby steps when first entering the gym. Hayes, who lost more than 130 pounds on her own, understands the importance of applying patience at the onset of a fitness and wellness program.
