Fitness Week in Review for Week Ending May 3

Love these end of the week reviews where we can see what articles we talked about this week and catch you up on articles you may have missed. For the week ending May 3rd, we were still coming off a slow April to dive into May.

Fitness – The Easier Choice focuses on the fact that fitness may be the easier choice, but we don’t always perceive it that way. But making fitness your choice is the way to go. Looking for something fun to do with the family or with your spouse? Check out Tennis for Two? Or Four?

In, 11,000 Steps A Day we tackled the idea that Moms and Dads may be doing their 10K a day, but what about the kids? Kids benefit from extra steps in a day as much as their parents do. While I think the constant pounding the media has focused on overweight kids (because hey, we had overweight kids when I was growing up and a lot of that pudge melted when they hit the end of high school. But I acknowledge medical concerns, so if you’re concerned, this is a good idea to keep in mind.

Wish you had your own personal Fountain of Youth? Check out this article because it may be that you do have one. Not a lot of articles this week, but we’re just getting revved up for the month. Stay tuned for some great articles on fitness tips, the Olympics and much, much more.
