Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘n Roll

This topic seemed appropriate after my recent focus that I had leading up to Masters Nationals for Olympic Weightlifting: finding balance.

Flying High!

Last month I attended classes at House of Flyte and absolutely fell in love with this fitness craze. First of all, there is a certain amount of trust that has to happen in order to make this work. You have to trust yourself, the instructor, but in the case of suspension, you also have to…
