Happy Mother’s Day

And, believe it or not, wishing others luck makes them perform better too. In one experiment—a dexterity task that normally took more than 5 minutes to complete—was accomplished, on average, in just over 3 minutes if participants [...]

Punk Rope Gets Comedic

In the planning stages for more than a year, on Wednesday the team behind Eliot Glazer is going to tape a Punk Rope class for Blood, Sweets, and Tears, a new reality show they're pitching to networks.

Staying Young With Interval Training

The toll that aging takes on our bodies extends to the cellular level. But the damage accrued by cells in older muscles is especially worrisome, because cells do not regenerate easily and, over time, their mitochondria, which produce energy, decrease in strength and number.
