Get Rewarded


When you lift heavy things, you work out your muscles, and you get strong: that’s a reward in itself.  You don’t need to work toward a medal, work toward a stronger you.

When You Feel Like You Can Do Anything

This lovely lady leaping looks fabulous . . . . but that’s not all: she feels fabulous, too. Fitness leads to strength and beauty not only on the outside, but on the inside as well.


Your goals motivate you. So when you feel too lazy to go work out, think about not just a toned body, but an empowered mind and soul. Imagine feeling like you can do anything.

Buff Obama

Buff Obama

My favorite thing about Michelle is her buff biceps. She is smart, hardworking, and articulate, with degrees from Princeton University and Harvard Law School and an impressive resume. But the biceps are icing on the cake. I love how even in her 50s she can rock short-sleeved fashion. Her muscles symbolize her strength and determination. We all know it takes effort and dedication to work out on a regular basis. And if she can do it with all she has had on her plate while in the public eye, then the rest of us can try to do the same.

Winter Exercise: Skating!

When your blades sail along the ice, you feel like you are flying. Ice skating hasn’t changed that much over the years.  Once you get over the wobbles and gain confidence, there is nothing like it.  Love these old images.  Hope they inspire you to go to the rink or out on a lake if you are lucky enough to live near an outdoor skating venue.
