Fitness Motivation - Do what others won't so tomorrow you can do what others can't

The grinding, the pain, the soreness, the rigor. Is it all really worth it?

Being healthy isn't easy. Think about it – you wake up early before anyone else to go to the gym. At the gym you push, pull, lift, and carry beyond what you thought you were physically capable of, only to come home and adhere to a strict diet of protein, carbohydrates, and minimal fats and sugars. Let's be honest – fitness definitely isn't easy street. It requires hard work, dedication, and doing things above and beyond what "normal" people do. Putting things into this perspective, one can't help but ask…

Chest and Back Superset Workout

Workouts, recipes, motivation, tips, and advice all right to your inbox! Subscribe to Tone-and-Tighten.com using the black bar up at the top of the page.

One of my favorite gym days!

I love supersets. The idea is simple – work one muscle group followed be immediately working the muscle group directly opposite. Basically, you're working the muscle group on the opposite side while giving the group you just worked a break. Confusing? I'm sure you it will be crystal clear once you finish this workout!

Two of my favorite groups to superset are the chest and back. It's a great way to blow through a ton of exercises in not a lot of time. Here on the newest addition to the "What I Worked Wednesday" series I'm sharing this awesome chest and back gym day. Try it out – I promise you will love it… And maybe hate it in two days…

With the holidays around the corner, I wanted to focus on gifts you could give your friends, family and loved ones that will help them stay active, healthy, and achieve their fitness goals.

Today I wanted to share 10 of the Best Video Games that encourage kids to be active. Kids love video games, but many times they will be sitting down for hours on end while they play. We do have a video game console at our house (just a basic Wii), but we try to find games that require our kids to move. It's a great way for them to get exercise, especially during the winter months!

Without further adieu, here are 10 of the Best Video Games that will keep your kids moving!
