Nantucket is as close to home you can get and still really feel like you are on vacation.  It is one of my top five favorite places to visit.  Given my job, it’s important to stay fit while away for an entire week and Nantucket proved it to be easy.  Not drinking proved to be [...]

On Wednesday morning, I was excited to take part in Tom Holland’s Bootcamp.  If you read Women’s Health, Holland actually created the three amazing workouts featured in the September issue (Lose [...]
