It’s been four years since the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) suffered a devastating loss to Japan in the FIFA Women’s World Cup Championship. It was a hard fought game and if it wasn't for women's soccer legend and 4x USWNT player, Abby Wambach, the game would've never existed.

Then came the Championship game against Japan ... Read More

This form of exercise increases core strength, core balance, stability, posture, and control, as well as cardio endurance and lung capacity. Core training is a must when it comes to cardio kickboxing. Your stances, kicks, and balance derive ... Read More

While being a 3-time Super Bowl Champion might seem like the ultimate success to most people, for former Washington Redskins defensive end, Charles Mann, that’s not nearly the case.
The day his first-born child walked across the stage to receive her diploma was one of extreme joy and a bit of sadness for Mann. In an interview with Strayer University, he expressed how in that moment he realized his life only had one blemish and that was he had started something he did not finish.
Charles Mann had initially attended and played football at the University of Nevada from ... Read More
