By April I hit my all-time weight high (outside of pregnancy), and it mortified me. I finally fully committed and decided to try different classes...

March Nutrition Tip from Overland Park Fitness Center: Your nutrition acronym for March is a word I really don’t like to use, but I am going to make an exception because these simple letters will help you make better choices. The word is DIET. D – Dairy : skim milk , low fat cottage cheese and low fat or fat free yogurt (avoid the flavored kinds because they can be loaded with sugars (both are available at the front desk where members check in at The Athletic Club). My favorite way to eat yogurt is to add a little honey or some fruit for sweetness. Dairy free – try almond milk as a healthy alternative. I – instant oatmeal :...

Shay’s Success Story with Kansas City Group Fitness Classes

Shay’s Success Story with Kansas City Group Fitness Classes: I have had a battle with physical activity and a food addiction my whole life. As a child my parents always had me involved with something physical (basketball, dance, etc…) However, I never felt successful or competent in any of it, which made it hard and not fun!

My health was starting to become a major concern and my physical activity was becoming limited because of weight and lack of movement. I...
