Women’s Studio Workout

By Desiree Ahrens

In a previous life of mine, I worked with women who were deathly afraid to walk into a large gym. No way were they going to even look at a large gym let alone actually work out there. What if someone saw them? What if they looked like they didn’t know what they were doing!? […]

Are you tired of joint pain from running?

Navigating the Weights

By Naomi

What’s the difference between free weights and the various weight machines? Which should I include in my workout? Why are there so many options to choose from? Will I get the same benefits using the machines as I would with the free weights? With so many routes to take, you may want to veer off […]

Big Audacious Hairy Goal

By Desiree Ahrens

My Big Audacious Hairy Goal (BAHG) when I was a little girl watching Kristi Yamaguchi skate to gold was to be an Olympic Athlete. However, I didn’t particularly like to skate (even though I was born and raised in the State of Hockey). I realized I just wanted to be a part of the Olympics […]

Please– join me in my running misery

By Desiree Ahrens

When I have a moment to myself at home I tend to make rash decisions. This notably occurred about 2 years ago when I just happened to be in a good mood while my three small kids were at grandma’s. Even though I had never given much thought to a marathon, I went ahead and registered […]

You had me at Quadriceps

By Desiree Ahrens

One of my favorite things I get to do as part of my job as a Health and Wellness Coach at the DAHLC is to teach foam rolling. I first started foam rolling about 10 years ago after a friend from Chicago called to tell me about this great new thing she was doing with […]

The Things I Didn’t Say

By Caleigh - Coach

How do you let the people you love, know that you love them? We all have different ways in which we show feelings and emotion. Even more, we show our emotions in different ways to different people in our lives. As we get older, I would venture to say that it’s not all that often that […]

1-Limb at a Time

By Desiree Ahrens

For your next workout, try doing 1-limb at a time. Try using 1 arm at a time for a bench press instead ofboth at the same time. Or, try a 1 legged squat instead of keeping both feet firmly planted to the ground. Incorporating single arm or single leg exercises into your workout increases utilization […]

Is it just me or has the gym become much busier lately?

By Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach

It’s January! I have to get to the gym earlier to line up for a class.  The parking lot is always full now.  Getting on my favorite piece of equipment has never been an issue until now. Where did all of these people come from?  I don’t like the month of January at the gym. […]
