I was looking for a nice quality flooring that would be comfortable, functional and easy on the eyes, and I definitely found what I was looking for. Take a look at the before pictures of our garage.

Review: I’m with Fatty: Loosing 50 Pounds in 50 Miserable Weeks by Ed Ugel

I just finished the book I’m with Fatty by Ed Ugel. I have to say, it is an entertaining read, but there were times when I was uncomfortable. Call me old fashioned (which no doubt I am) but there are some things you just don’t talk about, let alone share with the world in a [...]

What the Heck is Anti Monkey Butt Powder?

As I type this, I am breaking a major rule when it comes to footwear: I am wearing sneakers without socks. But before you plug your nose in anticipation of the smell, just know that I have taken necessary precautions to ensure that no one gets a whiff of my sockless-sneaker-feet. I have applied a [...]

KAOS Komfort Kompression Shirts Review

I’ve been meaning to post this review for a few months now. I’ve been wearing athletic compression shirts since before Under Armour made it cool.

Do I Really Need A Digital Pedometer?

Pedometers are meant to assist you with calculating the number of steps you take. Some digital pedometers are more advanced than others. There are some that only count steps and some that count steps, heart rate, calories, etc. I have been contemplating purchasing a Omron Digital Pedometer for quite some time. The last time I [...]

My Brand New Smith Machine Squat Rack

My wife treated me to this, in my novice opinion, awesome rack. Fitness Gear has a partnership with Dick’s Sporting Goods that makes it so that only Dick’s [...]

I just purchased a recumbent bike from Wal-Mart. It’s the a Stamina Model # 4755. I know it’s not the best quality but I think it will fulfill its purpose for now. Plus it was only $108 bucks. It’s pretty cool and gets the job done for now. I just felt like I needed to [...]
