    It might not be what you want to hear, but the undeniable truth is that the way you see yourself affects your confidence and self-esteem.

    A Backyard Pool Is a Backyard Gym

    A Backyard Pool Is a Backyard Gym

    Why is swimming one of the best fitness workouts of all time? Because, for those who are already strong swimmers, and love to swim for fun, then it doesn’t even seem like a workout at all. However, swimming is a workout, a great one, in fact. Swimming a few daily laps in your own backyard pool will actually show you unbeatable results just as much (if not more) as bike-riding, jogging, or even spending hours at the gym each day. To take a slight detour, I want to mention that all pools have the same perks whether they are inground pools in Virginia or self made pools in California. That is the beauty of pools. But, if you’re still not convinced that swimming alone provides amazing and unbeatable results, here’s five fitness reasons a backyard pool beats the gym.

    The Gym: Embracing My Love/Hate Relationship

    The Gym: Embracing My Love/Hate Relationship

    I was always an active child. I think growing up I tried every single sport that a kid can possibly do. Only two actually stuck: softball and volleyball. If I wasn’t at volleyball practice, I was at a softball game or supporting my brother with his sports. Sports and being active just ran in my family, and I’m so grateful that this healthy lifestyle was ingrained in my head at a young age. I do like working out. I just have a weird relationship with it.

    Are You Ready to Run a Marathon?

    Are You Ready to Run a Marathon?

    The marathon is the crowning achievement for a runner. After all your running accomplishments, it's no wonder you're considering it. You started with a short walk-run program. Over the following months you kept it up. You walked less and ran more. You signed up for a 5k, then a 10k, and maybe even a half-marathon. Somewhere in the back of your mind that ultimate goal has been looming. It calls to you. At first you dismissed it, but now you wonder. Are you ready? Could you actually do it?

    Thou Shalt Not Wear Cotton

    Running, a simple activity that can be enjoyed by all. The best part about running is that it doesn't require a lot of equipment, unlike other sports such as ice hockey and lacrosse with all the padding, gloves, helmets, etc., or even golf with all the different clubs.

    How I Finally Started Working Out (Even Though I Hated It)

    How I Finally Started Working Out (Even Though I Hated It)

    I always thought working out was just in my mind: that I wasn't working out regularly because I hadn't figured out how to train my brain to just do it, and not stop doing it. For a lot of hobbies, this is the usual pattern: Try it, do it regularly, and eventually, you'll highlight all the great things about what makes it so much fun and enjoyable for you, therefore motivating you to keep doing it.

I was flying back to Miami, and there was another flight going to New York City. I noticed something about the young girls and guys headed back to New York City: Nine out of ten were overweight.
