    By Becky Johnson, Certified Personal Trainer

    A complete, safe and effective fitness program includes various components, however there are three that stand out above the rest. Aerobic exercise, muscular strength and endurance conditioning, and flexibility exercise work together to make up an effective fitness program and are perhaps the most important components to consider when determining your fitness routine.

    There's still a few months to go until Spring time, which unfortunately means a few more months of cold weather and flu season. Luckily the Redskins team nutirionist, Jane Jakubczak, has some tips on how to keep your immune system strong throughout the winter!

    By Jane Jakubczak, Washington Redskins Team Nutritionist

    I am often asked about the various energy and nutrition bars on the market today. These bars can play an important role in the “always on the go” lifestyle most of us lead. I am a true believer in “real food first,” however when you are in a pinch, a carefully selected commercial bar can play a part in a healthy nutrition plan.

    The original energy bars were designed with the busy athlete in mind. The bars were developed to be a portable, non-perishable, easily digestible source of nutrients to fuel ... Read More
