The last few weeks have been warmer than usual; it feels like the middle of summer. Most people are still geared towards heading to the beach for a dip in the ocean to cool off. However, it is the end of September and soon it will start to feel a lot like Christmas! This means that the winter sports season is right around the corner and it is time to start preparing!!

Should your cardio training focus on distance or short interval work?

Is your core in good shape?
How about your posture, does it need some correcting?
Are you flexible enough to bend over and touch your toes?
