Details DR. JAMES NILL

CORE FITNESS - WHAT IS IT AND WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

Core training is a no-longer-new catchphrase on the fitness landscape. The concept of core fitness, by now, has been promoted by every Pilates school, yoga center, and chain of fitness clubs around the world.

Practically every physical therapist and personal trainer has learned a variety of...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: STEPS 8 & 9

Details

I would like to share a story with you about steps 8 & 9. When I worked Step 8: Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. I had my employer on that list because I had a whole garage full of stuff that I had stolen from them--it was eating my lunch.

I finally loaded up everything that belonged to them and returned...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: CINDY'S STORY PART VII

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Cindy's story: I saw the people around me at A.A. meetings who were sober and happy and I wanted what they had and I'm glad they taught me to keep it simple. Each day, I ask for help in the morning and I say thank you at night.

After we worked the first three steps and said the Third Step Prayer together on our knees, I didn't want to continue with Step Four "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves" because it scared me. The word moral...

A HEALTHY DAY: STRETCHING

Details DR. JAMES NILL

HAMLET'S FITNESS

"To stretch or not to stretch." That wasn't exactly Hamlet's question. The Prince of Denmark had matters of state to consider, especially the most effective method to avenge the murder of his father. Getting ready for his next fencing lesson had taken low priority.
