I think Billy Blanks still has something to offer to the fitness world, but he really needs to ditch the gimmicky toys. Either use standard equipment that can be bought at any sporting goods store or...

I didn't buy my Fitbit Charge HR but I really like it for the resting heartrate feature. I use that to gauge whether I need to take a few days off, as elevated resting heartrate is usually a sign of...

I received a Fitbit Charge HR for Xmas and my favorite thing about it is that I can use it to monitor my resting heartrate. A common sign of overtraining is an elevated resting heartrate, so when I...

30 minutes a day is likely good enough to increase your strength, flexibility, and stamina. However, that will probably not be enough to lose weight if you are sedentary for the other 23.5 hours of...
