By now we've all at least heard about the importance of exercise.  We've been told to lift weights, try super slow, cross fit, P90X, or zumba, do pilates and yoga, go running or bicycling, and everything in-between.  The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) even recommends 150 minutes of aerobic exercise in addition to 2 days of total body strength work per week for adults aged 18-64.  Everyone seems to have that special workout that will succeed where others have failed, so what's the best method?  I've got the truth for you....Are you ready for it?

We're almost through February, which is on average the coldest and snowiest month of the year(at least in NJ).  Even though it's one of the hardest months to "push through", it also means that Spring is that much closer.  Just think: warm sunshine, green grass, spring flowers...

To help you endure the most wintery of months, here are a few ways to keep your immune system in tip-top shape:


As Americans we love superheros......bigger, stronger, faster and ultimately better than the evil we're fighting at any given time.  Truly, it's fun to watch these larger than life characters, whether action-heroes on the big-screen or sports heroes on the field we find ourselves compelled by the amazing feats
 that they are able to accomplish.....but perhaps what's even more compelling is when the little guy takes down one of these seemingly unbreakable monsters against great odds like Rocky (pick any of the 40 or 50 installments)...........but what's the reality of the situation?  What's it like in real life? 


Can you imagine navigating life, and all it's twists and turns, without the use of your eyes?  Sure, technology nowadays is wonderful, and the use of a knowledgeable and trustworthy guide from time to time is critical, but how would you respond if you entered the game of life with 20% less resource than most?  Would you accept the circumstances as disabling, and allow them to get the better of you?  Or would you work diligently, stretch with all your might, endure the "twist", and accelerate in "the turn"?
