High-Intensity Interval Training is becoming popular because of its short and effective routines. It is best practiced with supervision from a personal trainer.
It’s hard enough to keep fit during summer, even more so during winter. If you can’t visit a fitness center, here are some workout tips for you to do at home.
2014 has arrived, and with the dawn of a New Year comes the need to make good some New Year's resolutions. Achieving physical fitness─ preferably with the help of a Dunwoody personal trainer─ is a typical goal, and if you pursue it, you will want to be informed of fitness trends for the New Year.

As one of Metro Atlanta's elite neighborhoods, Dunwoody offers well-maintained running trails for locals. Some residents run to fulfill fitness goals, while some run to train for marathons and races.

When it comes to obesity, it seems that the people of Georgia start really young. In fact, a recent report released by the governor's Student Health and Physical Education Partnership (SHAPE), has revealed that out of a million Georgian schoolchildren who were tested, only 16 percent were able to pass the five basic tests of physical fitness. This number is surprisingly even lower than the 20 percent who weren't able to pass any of the tests at all
