    Former Redskins Safety Brig Owens graces the list of the 80 greatest Redskins, still holds the record for most interception return yards in Redskins history (686), and recently presented the award for 2013 Defensive Player of the Year at the Redskins Welcome Home Luncheon.

    What many may not know however, is how talented Owens is in the kitchen!

  • Circuit Training for Women

    By Deanna Jefferson, Celebrity and Nike Trainer

    Three weeks ago the ladies of WOW took over FedExField for an exhilarating football themed fitness bootcamp.

    I led the workout with the help of trainers Tiffani Rhodes, Devoné Martin and several others on my fit team. We sweat, laughed and had so much fun running, jumping, squatting, lunging, crunching and tossing footballs through different exercise stations. One of the participants asked me about why I chose this particular style of workout, so I figured I would touch on it in this post!
