Your Fitness Personality

I bet everyone out there has taken a Myers-Briggs test or one of those fun online personality-type quizzes. You know the kind I’m talking about - the quizzes that give you a round of options for your favorite weekend activity, what you love to do with friends, and what your ideal date would be. But did you know that the answers to these quizzes - your real personality type - influences how you work out?

How to Kick Bad Moods Forever

Are you in a bad mood? When's the last time you felt upset? Five minutes ago? Five days ago? Five months ago?

Time for a quick drink? > 944 Magazine

Filed under: ,

The summer is hands down my favourite time of the year. Not just because the weather is to die for but also because people are always doing something. BBQ’s at some friend’s house, parties every weekend, events for every organization in the world, picnics with family and friends, concerts, days at the beach, and vacation down south... There is always something going on!

Men and Women

Do men and women need different things when working out? Intuitively, we'd think what works for Jane should work for John. We know, of course, that John will use heavier weights and sprint a little faster but does the workout or diet really need to be all that different?

Why are individuals afraid to commit to an exercise program? Here is how to change their mind....

Filed under:

Making a commitment to exercise is probably one of the hardest things to do for an individual....but why?

c) Lack of motivation.
d) No immediate results.
e) Too hard and complicated.

Who doesn’t like to people watch? > 944 Magazine

Filed under: ,

It's true. I love people watching. It’s probably my favorite past time. We all think everyone does it once in a while but I think it is actually up there as one of America’s favorite past times. Probably right next to baseball...well, close to it anyway. Certainly if the boys are out looking at the baseball game, the girls are right next to them observing the other fans as much as the players on the field!

So what is people watching and why do we do it?

CRANK THE TUNES!

I don’t know about you but when I grab my iPod and go for a run and find out the battery is dead my motivation to workout is disappears! No question, music is a HUGE motivator for exercise. Not only will thinking about listening to great tracks get you pumped up for your workout, but the tunes themselves can actually help you increase your workout intensity and duration to get better results.

Get Your Butt in Gear! > Jennifer Cohen for 944

Filed under: ,

" Summer's ending, so guess what? It's time to pump it up. A walk to the ice-cream shop and back doesn't exactly count as "exercise," but every little bit does add up. The point is, you can do better! Just because you're tired and it's warm doesn't mean you can lie on the couch all day cougar-style. Get moving, girl!

Let me introduce myself to you… > Jennifer Cohen writes for 944


"So with all the excitement of writing my first blog entry for 944, I completely forgot to introduce myself and tell you who I am and what I'm all about! Don't worry; I won't bore you with all the mundane childhood details from when I was 11 at sleep-away camp. I'll try and keep it short and to the point.
