A Stress-Free Holiday Season

posted on November 14th, 2012
The holiday season is a time of giving, family reunions, re-connecting with old friends, baking, shopping, and of course, celebrating; it’s no surprise, then, that “me” time usually doesn’t make the schedule. However, failing to take time for yourself can lead to a stressful holiday season for yourself and, ultimately, those around you. The American Psychological Association reports that up to 69% of people are stressed by the feeling of having a “lack of time”, 69% are stressed by perceiving a “lack of money”, and 51% feel stressed out over the “pressure to give or get gifts”.

Fitness Gets Personal

posted on November 14th, 2012
Personal training is a popular offering in many gyms, and it's where members can often obtain the best results for their specific goals. Not only do participants get more personalized attention, they also have their own cheering section. "You develop a relationship with that trainer, and the accountability goes both ways," said Whitney Proud, marketing director at The Cornerstone Clubs in Furlong, Pa. Sessions can be tailored to fit not only the client's goals, but also their energy level on that particular day, as well as any sore spots or areas of concern.
