My name is Justin D Quackenbush. I’m 36 years old and I live in Manhattan. I am a professional actor, singer and entertainer working mainly in live theatre. In this profession, I have to go where the work is – which means often working regionally, away from my home gym and group fitness etc. I rely on a strong body in my line of work, but like everyone else -the stresses of life have occasionally disrupted my fitness routine. In September of 2017, I was temporarily uprooted from my life in NYC due to some emergency circumstances, and in the process lost my routine and watched the weight creep on. By November 2017, I was weighing in at 210 lbs.
My name is LaDonna Willis. I turned 40 this year and am a wife, mother, and recently became a “Gramma” to the most beautiful grandson in the whole world! When I’m not working as a rural health clinic administrator, I enjoy family time, reading, wine, the outdoors, and working out. I’ve not always considered myself to be athletic; that mindset began the year I turned 35.
My name is Dr. Shubhrat Misurya. All my life I have been overweight by about 176 lbs. In the year 2016-2017 I gained another 44 lbs of pure fat…now, I was 220 lbs & OBESITY CLASS 2. This put me at a very high risk of hypertension and diabetes and I already had depression. I was absolutely miserable, afraid for my life. Here’s how Fit Radio gave me HOPE, success & helped me turn my life around.

Regular exercise has so many benefits. It can help ward off health problems like heart disease and high blood pressure, boost your mood and relieve stress, increase your energy, and even help you sleep better. What’s not to love?
Experts recommend adults get a minimum of 150 minutes a week (a little more than 20 minutes each day) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity and do strength-training that works the major muscle groups at least two days a week. But there are other ways to boost physical activity outside of your regular workouts and reap additional health benefits. Here are thirteen ways to sneak more exercise into your day.
True, the founding fathers were probably pros at hot dog and watermelon eating contests, but Independence Day celebrations can be so much more. A big get-together is the perfect way to get outside and organize a group fitness activity. So whether the crowd’s up for hardcore tug-of-war or hiking a historic trail, we’ve got it covered with 12 ways to get active on July 4th this year. More
You might have noticed that a favorite habit of your fellow runners is to take a quick shot of their watches post-workout. Their results show up in your feed in all their glory: Time spent running and, of course, pace.
