Spring Training

This is the time of year we start thinking of Summer, of goals to run, or bike or swim. The possibilities are endless. I am asked frequently how to start a training program. The key to succes is to start with where you are, rather than where you want to be.

If you want to train for a half marathon, find a program that starts with the same frequency of running you are currently doing. If you jump into a program that is too aggressive it will catch up with you and the risk for injury sky-rockets.

For those of you who are looking for structured training programs, I have developed a menu of programs from 5K - marathon on the http://www.ActiveTrainer.com site. There are tips from John "the Penguin" Bingham and training programs for every level!

Motivational speaking is one of the most sought after things in the business world today. This speaker can take a poor performing company straight to the top of the corporate climate. They can simply wow and astonish all the people around them and drum the standard person into a motivated frenzy.
