  • How to Prevent Colds and Flu

    It’s cold and flu season. No one likes to get sick, but unfortunately we do sometimes.  To prevent colds, the best offense is a good defense, as they say at the Redskins!  Typically, people who tend to catch the most colds are the ones who have little children who attend school.  The simple reason is that most kids haven’t built up their immune system, so they are more susceptible to getting sick, and they bring these viruses home to mom and dad, who then pass it on to co-workers.

  • Working Out While On The Road

    01.27.2016 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness

    By Deanna Jefferson, CPT

    Aside from fitness, traveling is one of my most favorite things to do. Oftentimes vacations or travel for work can be the excuse we need to fall off of our workout regimen. Here is my cheat sheet for ways to continue working out while on the road.

    Cheat 1: Try to book a hotel with a fitness center on-site. If a hotel has a gym you're more likely to take an elevator ride downstairs to get in a workout. Check with concierge services about what amenities are available to you.

    Cheat 2: Many hotels have ... Read More

    The new year is here! The start of a new year is a great time to get reenergized with a renewed sense of focus or start in a new direction.

    Whether it's maintaining or changing your career, planning is the key to success. Write your goals down. Plan out the year by four quarters and give yourself a deadline to achieve your goals.
