Fit Tips

This page is for all you fitness enthusiasts!

I don’t know about you, but I love a great tip when I hear one. Especially when it is fitness related! I have had several members share some great tips and tools with me, which I thought we all could appreciate. Therefore I created this page to share them with anyone else who is interested. Make sure to check in often, as this page will continue to grow!

If you have a tip or resource that you would like to see here, shoot me an email and I will get it added here.

Here’s to Staying Fit & Healthy,

  • Workout Music
    A lot of you have asked where we get our high energy music from as you would like to have it for walking, running, and home workouts.  Most of us purchase our music from Power Music or Dynamix Music, which has CDs geared towards different style fitness classes.  Power Music recently came out with Workout Music, which has the same great high energy beat, but is geared towards home workouts.  It also has a search feature that allows you to search for music based on your workout.
