Since our Redskins have a few away games left in the season, most us are stuck rooting for our guys from behind a TV screen.
Here's a great fun way that we can burn off some of those wings, hotdogs and chili-cheese nachos while watching the game. Grab your girls and perform these exercises whenever the REDSKINS get whatever the indicator is.
This way, you might be able to make it through the game without keeling over, and some rest periods will be incorporated.
First down: 10 jumping jacks, +1 for each ... Read More

These PSA’s were able to reach over 500 million Americans and became a model for NFL participation in the campaign.

Six months later, in April 2014, she learned that her mammogram had resulted in a pre-cancer finding. Cheryl's breast cancer was caught early, during stage 1, because she has taken the time every year to attend a well women's check-up and mammogram.
When asked what being an "All-Star Survivor" means to her: "I am a survivor of breast cancer and I am so grateful to have had my regular annual well women’s check and mammogram. For this reason, doctors were able to find ... Read More

To build a strong core you need to exercise a variety of muscles from your hips to your shoulders. Most core-strengthening exercises can be done at home with no equipment. Balance training is a great way to improve core strength ... Read More
