Whether you’re heading out for a run, getting your cardio in on the Arc Trainer, strength training, or taking a class, the right music is key to helping you maintain focus and get the most out of your workout.

Posted on Nov 10, 2014 10:30:00 AM

Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to watch, and even more fortunate to assist some trainers as they have turned their dreams into reality and created a successful training business, built a new facility, or grew their business/facility to even greater heights. Seeing this success happen for those involved is extremely motivating and exciting. As a trainer or gym owner, or just involved in the industry, you know the hard work that goes into making these dreams a success and to see that success obtained is truly a great feeling.

Stressed about knee stress?

You should be!

For the last few decades, we’ve had it drilled into our heads that we should minimize impact to our joints in order to preserve them. Pain under the kneecap, after all, is the most common complaint among physically active children and adults seeking medical treatment in sports medicine clinics, accounting for 62% of all knee injuries, according to one study.1
