This also made me realize that I had a few travel workouts I'd sent to … [Read more...] about Three No-Equipment Workouts for When You’re On the Road!

It was time to get out of town... if I have to spend too much time in Florida, I get antsy and the humidity and lack of any real relief from the heat was beginning to really wear on me. So after some clicking around and a few emails I managed to put together a little trip that would allow me to keep working some on writing and my usual business client responsibilities as well … [Read more...] about Travel Log and Workout:Visit to NYC Part 1 – Traveling Rings–with Video, Kettlebell & Sandbag, and MORE!
As you may have gathered I shot a fair amount of video while in Providence, Rhode Island recently. The weather was ideal (slightly cool and overcast outside) not only for running around but acting as a natural light diffusor for pretty good video!!!

Dear Northern Friends, Sorry to gloat about the good weather we are having this weekend, but it was so nice outside today that a friend and I decided to walk to a nearby park and set up our slacklines. The very cool thing was also realizing that the next time, we could pick up picnic items on the way and really turn it into a day long outdoor fun time. Can't complain … [Read more...] about Active Rest Can Be a LOT of Fun!
On somewhat of a lark it seemed like a fun idea to drag a variety of favorite "toys" out to the park today. A friend met me for this challenge and I also wanted to borrow her slackline. Because mine is SO stretchy I'd been having to hang it so high between trees that when I was jumping or falling off of it with the usual frequency it was starting to stress out my achilles … [Read more...] about A Great Excuse to Drag a Bunch of Things Out to the Park – Workout and Skill Practice
