Our fitness articles overview some of the basics in exercise, including insights into cardio exercise and weight training. When it comes to cardio, one of our passions is running, as we have completed numerous races including half-marathons and marathons. Based on this experience and knowledge, we will be featuring many blogposts on running, racing, our running essentials, and tips that we have learned along the way. We are also very passionate about weight-training, as it is the key to increasing muscle mass and metabolism to aide in weight loss. Within our blogs, we will also provide suggested weight-training workouts which may help target or tone a specific area. Additionally, we will provide weight-training workouts for specific lifestyles, like working out on the go, using just your body weight. Finally, we feature articles on the latest trends in fitness like cycling, barre, boot camps or yoga. .
