The Weekly Burn: The Choice Is Yours

The Weekly Burn

We spend a lot of time scouring the Internet to stay up on the hottest health and fitness trends, and each week, we’ll be sharing with you the best of what we read. (It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!)

To take care of yourself or not take care of yourself — it’s a choice you make every day. And we’ll be the first to admit it’s not easy finding time to step away from the computer and onto the gym floor. That’s why we’re here to help you make the best choices you can, from getting in a short-but-great workout to choosing the best options in a conference room full of calorie bombs.
