“The Fit Girl’s Getaway Time”

And now the rest of this issue of Fitness:

  • “The Proper Way to a Plank” I teach these several times per week but am always looking for new ways to describe how to actually perform a plank. Check out this guide on page 99.
  • “Ace Your Race” Whether or you’re a hardcore runner looking to up your speed or a beginner looking tackle your first 5K—this guide will help you.
  • “Too Healthy For Your Own Good?” I know some folks have a hard time taking even one day off from their workout or veering from their diet in the slightest—but compulsive behavior can take over your thinking and cause bigger problems later. Signs on accessing how “addicted” you really might be.


Overall Grade:

A!  Throw this issue into your beach bag and stay inspired for the summer. (Go ahead and enjoy a fruity cocktail while you are at it!)
