Some of us would like to shed half our thighs by the holidays. Others simply have

an addiction to the “runner’s high.” Still, we’re constantly reprimanded that being a two-a-day

We break it down for you here…

It’s not about how long you train, but how hard – Remember the old saying “quality over

quantity?” Well it turns out it applies to more than just relationships and chocolate-glazed

doughnuts. You can go to the gym for two hours and really only hit your target heart rate for

Sundays so we can have lazy fun watching Netflix. Resting is just as imperative as pushing all

It’s different for everyone – Professional athletes train multiple times a day. Runners training

for a marathon may train twice a day. It all depends on you, your body and what you’re working

If you work out more than once a day, what’s your secret?
