October is one of my favorite months with the Exceeding Expectations kids.  As you all know, our top priority for the kids is, and always will be, education. That said, every October we participate in two athletic events that I feel are significant in laying the groundwork necessary for them to be successful in the academic world and in their adult lives.  The first of these events is the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) triathlon, aptly called “The Best Day in Triathlon.” Here’s a brief overview from their website:  “In 1994, three friends started a triathlon fundraiser to help one man regain his independence after a tragic accident left him a quadriplegic.

Tips For Getting The Most Out of Exercise Aids (Mobile Apps, Video)

-


You’re about to take a business trip and you’d like to do some type of exercise while on the road. Or maybe you’re in town, but working long hours and getting to a gym or a yoga or pilates class just doesn’t fit into your schedule. In the wired world in which we live today, this is not the problem it once was. One session on the Internet will give you a wealth of material that you can download or apps you can use on your smartphone. There’s no shortage of video instruction – at all levels – for those who are serious about wanting to keep in shape. One iPhone app that I think is very good is Nike Training Club (it’s free). It has options for different goals: getting lean, toned, strong or focused and different types of workouts for each. The workouts are short and targeted.
