Exciting News! The good folks at Bowflex have invited me to participate in their upcoming online webinar, “The Journey to Health and Fitness”!  It’s going to be a live Q&A-style event, with a panel including me, Tom Holland (Bowflex’s in-house Fitness Advisor), and Brooke Birmingham, who blogs over at Brooke Not On A Diet.
