You Are The Weakest Link

Do you remember that game show? Anyway, you're not the weakest link. I am. I've really been bad about posting to my blog recently and I apologize.

There's just been too much to do lately. So, rather than deny you great fitness info any longer, I'm going to send you to an excellent article from Geralyn Coopersmith, M.A., C.S.C.S.

If you're not familiar with her, Geralyn served as the exercise consultant for the Joy Fit Club Program with Joy Bauer on The Today Show. She is a contributing reporter and editorial advisor for and a member of the advisory board for Health Magazine. She is also frequently featured in national magazines and newpapers, including: Women's Health, Fitness, US Weekly, People, Self, Fit Pregnancy, Marie Claire, Family Circle, Seventeen, Redbook, The New York Post, Cosmopolitan, Newsday and many others.

She knows her stuff so pay attention. ;-)

Geralyn is also the author of...

Here is a tiny excerpt from her article...
I am always struck by how people (women and men) stick to what we know and what makes us look the best. Runners run, flexible folks do yoga, strong people lift weights. And while its fine to work with your natural gifts, the problem is that it is usually the thing that we MOST need and LEAST want to do that will ultimately result in an injury. Typically, it is the weakest link in our chain that will cause the injury...maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but at some point in the future -- unless we address it.

This is very important and often overlooked information regarding your fitness program. Take a minute to read the entire article at What's Your Weakest Link?
