Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you're all settling back into your routines following all of the holiday fun (and madness!). We're back to normal here at the Train Station, too. In fact, we're taking off with a running start this year. Those of you who have been in the studio this week noticed that

Menopause & Exercise

Happy Monday, blog readers! Hope you’re all doing well on this warm April day! Alright, enough with the chitchat, let’s get down to business. This week I want to talk about menopause.  AHH!

New addition to your To Do List: SLEEP!
