Thompson is the youngest-ever winner of an LPGA tournament, but it wasn’t that which turned the heads of the public.

    The controversial photograph of Lexi Thompson that appears on the cover of the fitness magazine is what caught the attention of the public eye. As seen in the picture below, she is featured on the cover of Golf Digest wearing only black bottoms, one golf glove ... Read More

  • Use A Medicine Ball For Core Conditioning And Strength!

    04.08.2015 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    Written by Kickboxing Instructor and Personal Trainer GeniLee.

    As a kickboxing instructor, I tend to emphasize how important it is to build core strength.  You may already know, the body depends on your core for balance, stability, posture, and control, even upon executing your kicks and self-defense techniques. It also helps keep a healthy and strong back.

    Did you know the medicine ball helps to provide vital fitness benefits such as building core trunk strength? Movement and stability begin with the core – abdominals, lower back, hips and spine. The core is the body’s center of power.

  • Sarah Thomas Makes NFL History As League's First Female Official

    04.06.2015 / Blog Posts

    Brought to you by SB Nation 

    Sarah Thomas, a Mississippi native who Wilson said has been a finalist for an NFL position previously, has officiated Conference USA games in the NCAA for nearly a decade. She has also officiated during NFL camps and the preseason previously.

    A technicality would keep Thomas from being the first woman to ever officiate an NFL game though. That honor belongs to Shannon Eastin, who was on the field working when replacement officials were brought in by the league during a referee lockout in 2012. Thomas, however, would be the first female to be hired ... Read More
