  • Papa John's for the Cure

    10.22.2014 / Blog Posts Community Local Lifestyle

    There are few things better than a fresh pizza from Papa John’s.

    But, what if we told you that a portion of your purchase would be going to cancer research?

    For the duration of the season Papa John’s is helping WOW members go even further in their commitment to cancer research. For every order of two large, 1-topping pizzas, a $25 value, Papa John’s will donate $5 of the purchase to the American Cancer Society.   

    Seems like a great time for family pizza night or a perfect way to entertain guest while also giving back during a ... Read More

  • In Case You Missed It: Moms Football Safety Clinic

    09.17.2014 / Blog Posts Events Health and Wellness Local Lifestyle

    By Julie Donaldson, CSN Anchor

    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 ...

  • Circuit Training for Women

    08.06.2014 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness Local Lifestyle

    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!
