I am sure you ALL watched the Redskins win against the Jaguars. If you are like me, as much as you want to celebrate the victory, you can’t help but look at the cost.
I couldn't help but think that the injuries sustained by both RGIII and Desean Jackson line up perfectly with our Moms Football Safety Clinic we hosted last Friday. While the odds of making it to the NFL are slim (only 0.2% of High School players will ever see the NFL!) injuries are still a huge concern no matter ... Read More

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!
Deanna Jefferson with her team of awesome trainers at the ... Read More
