Why I Stopped Peddling (and I’m not Talking about Spinning) 

After moving to Chicago, I found myself in a new city, again. Heavier than I liked, again. And not wanting to shell out over $100 a month on a gym membership. I missed Unite Fitness. I missed my Philly Runner friends. Yet I loved this crazy new city.  A virtual friend reached out about her …

Consistently Committed: My First Dietician Experience

Friday morning, I sat in a 3 hour meeting where people had brought in items for breakfast. There were massive muffins, bagels with a bevy of topping options, hummus and pita chips (apparently someone thinks this is breakfast food), and lots of coffee.

My New Obsession: Unite Fitness

Last fall I signed up to do a cross-training run one evening with Philadelphia Runner, Be Well Philly, and Unite Fitness. A huge group of runners literally ran through the streets of Philadelphia stopping at different tourist attractions to do push-ups, squats, burpees, and walking lunges. It was fantastic. I sweat a ton, and made …
