No, cardio doesn’t make you fat.

Posted on Apr 22, 2015 7:30:00 AM

There seems to be a crusade in the fitness industry against moderate-effort, steady state cardio. Most of these anti-cardio fitness "experts" claim that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is superior to steady state cardio for every person in the world, regardless of his or her fitness goals, current health, training history, injury history, body size, and body composition. Why does this have to be a black and white issue? Any activity or exercise has an appropriate time and a place. Why do we have to think of cardio as high intensity OR steady state? We really should be thinking high intensity AND steady state.

On Monday, April 20th, thousands of runners, volunteers, and spectators will fill the 26.2 mile route from Hopkinton to Boston for the 119th running of the Boston Marathon. From the excitement at the starting line, to the crowd pouring out of Fenway Park after the Red Sox game just in time to see the runners pass by, to the exhaustion and triumph of the finishers as they complete the race, the Boston Marathon provides a day filled with excitement and emotion for anyone involved, either as a participant or a spectator.

15 Songs To Boost Your Spring Workout

Posted on Apr 14, 2015 9:32:00 AM

Earlier this year, we gave you a list of 15 song to kick off 2015 and keep you in the gym when many people are already giving up on their New Year's Resolutions. The cold, snowy winter that so many of us endured this year did not do much in the way of helping people stay in their fitness routines, especially those that are runners and love to get outdoors.

Now that April is here and Spring has started to show itself in many parts of the country, more and more of us will be back out in the fresh air getting in those runs and outdoor workouts. With that in mind, I put together another #FitIn15 playlist to keep you moving, regardless of your activity choice.

Battling Back to Triathlons with Cybex

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 7:38:00 AM

Recently I had the opportunity to speak with Taryn Ferrara, a 26-year old triathlete who works at Atlantic Health System in Morristown, New Jersey. Taryn was a Division I swimmer at Binghamton University and after college she began to run marathons, competing in her last one in 2013 right here in Boston.

Following her marathon success, she began training for triathlons, with 2014 being her first competitive season. It was also a season where she endured a very serious injury: a labral tear in her hip. I spoke with Taryn about her pre-injury training, the process of diagnosing the injury, and how the Arc Trainer was part of her rehab as she battles back onto the triathlon circuit in 2015.
