Synergy Chronicles: ROCK HARD

Synergy Chronicles: ROCK HARD

See the title alone should have been my warning. Rock Hard. A high intensity strength training class taught by Ron, co-owner of Synergy and the only male instructor on staff. I knew I had to try this class as strength training is my Achilles heel. I can still hear Ron’s voice bellowing like a PE … Continue reading

U Can Win…..Tomorrow

So someone special put a bug in my ear about something special coming up tomorrow. Celebration Church in Long Reach is hosting a Community Resource day. And since this is Healthy Howard and I’m kinda health-focused my eyes immediately sought out the health components to this day. There are several. Fitness demos, health screenings, and nutritional lessons. Oh! And they … Continue reading

Synergy Chronicles: Zumba a la Charmaine

Ladies and gentlemen I have found the hottest Zumba class in Columbia (granted I haven’t been to any other classes so I don’t have any other points of references but go with it).

The Best News I’ve Heard All Week

More than 250 precious Nigerian girls abducted from their school and sold as child brides to a bunch of sick bastards. A comedian who thinks that women who accuse men … Continue reading

Synergy Chronicles: My First Spin Class

Well I decided to try a class yesterday. I haven’t been on the gym scene in more than a decade so classes have most definitely changed. I’m not afraid of a challenge because that’s usually where the results come from; doing something new with your muscles. Off to Synergy I go!! So I decided to … Continue reading

Ken Ulman aka The Ho Co Health Hero

Ken Ulman aka The Ho Co Health Hero

Say what you want about our County Executive (and I know you will) but I have noticed something about him over the years. He takes health in Howard County seriously. He’s a man of action for health. He doesn’t underhandedly  fat-shame the public the way some leaders do. He doesn’t send out some worthless press … Continue reading
