    Last week, this link was broken. I'm adding the link to our 9-week nutrition program again here for those who missed it. Click here to enroll. The most important 2 steps to setting a foundation for good nutrition doesn't have anything to do with what you eat, when you eat, where you eat, who you eat with, or getting anything else "perfect".

  • The amazing reasons why you should do Joint Mobility regularly (And a follow along video!)

    We were discussing all of the popping, crunching and clicking that we experience as we were doing our joint mobility this week (especially the neck exercises), and it got me thinking about what joint mobility is REALLY doing. Yoga has gained a lot of popularity in the last decade and while it is a great practice for a lot of people, joint mobility gives an alternative that is similar but different in a lot of ways.

    Conduct becoming of a fighter; this is Gary's Member spotlight story. What the staff has to say about Gary: When we decide on each member of the month, we look for individuals who are giving extraordinary effort. For some that might just mean showing up consistently and dedicating themselves to the journey for the first time, for others it might mean doing something that was once impossible. Gary is retired from the US Army and though retired, his Rock Steady boxing class has become like a band of brothers (and sisters) to him. Like his comrades in the military, they are all fighting the enemy together. This time however, the fight is much more personal. With Gary ....
