    Wondering which one is better? WOW's contributing personal trainer, Becky Johnson, reveals the good and the bad that come with each exercise method.

    When it comes to strength training, there has been much discussion and debate over which method is more effective: machine-based exercises or the use of free weights (dumbbell exercises.) The reality is each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

    As a trainer, I like to incorporate a variety of equipment in my client’s strength training programs. One size does not necessarily fit all. The choice depends on your level of experience, your exercise ... Read More

  • Too Much of a Good Thing: Portion Control Part Two

    11.08.2011 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    I often hear from my clients, “I eat healthy foods yet I can’t seem to lose weight, I don't understand why.” One of the most common reasons is they are consuming too much of a good thing!

    Portion control is key when it comes to managing one’s weight.

    The "Food Record" is the most powerful tool when it comes to weight control. Click here to see my previous blog on keeping a food record.

    Two important pieces of information your food records will reveal:

    1. Non-hunger eating
    2. Beyond-fullness eating

    In both cases you are ... Read More

  • Monday Morning Water Cooler: Ups and Downs of Youth

    When the Redskins announced their youth movement out of training camp, it wasn’t really that profound of a statement. Yes, the team would have a lot of younger players on the roster, but the core group of starters had plenty of experience, especially on offense.

    Halfway through the season, injuries and performance have forced changes to the starting lineups, and the result is a much different—much younger—Redskins lineup.

    Yesterday marked the first career starts of running back Roy Helu and offensive guard Maurice Hurt. It was the second career start of receiver Leonard ... Read More

  • First Comes Redskins, Then Comes Marriage - Terry Brown Shares Her Story

    11.04.2011 / Blog Posts Redskins

    Welcome to our newest feature of WOW's Football Friday - Fan Stories! Terry Brown shares her favorite Redskins memory below...

    It all started with my mom. When the 'Skins came in 1937 my grandfather started taking my mom, then 10, to the games. In 1941, he bought season tickets. If my mom was still alive, this would be her 70th season attending games. So we grew up on Redskins football!

    On January 10, 1983, my brother, Mike, and I camped out in front of RFK for playoff tickets to the game against the Vikings. (I had already stood in line ... Read More

    WOW's contributing personal trainer, Becky Johnson, tackles the myths and realities of spot reduction and reveals some fun ways to stay active this fall!

    You’ve seen the infomercial - a battery-powered belt to zap your ab muscles into a lean six-pack. Or remember the Thigh Master? Thank you, Suzanne Sommers! Millions of consumer dollars later, we are still asking the question - is spot reduction possible? In a word…no. Let me give you the facts.
