Fitness apps to motivate your workouts - Yahoo News




Keep from stumbling too bad against Utah and Colorado this weekend or in the Pac-12 tournament, Arizona State will host NCAA tournament games for just the second time in 18 seasons under coach Charli Turner Thorne. ''You look at us, we're undersized; we usually give up weight and height at every position,'' Turner Thorne said. ''We've a fast team, we're an athletic team, a very well-conditioned team and a tough team, and we need to utilize all of that. When we do, we're really good.'' The preseason brush off has helped spark the Sun Devils - just as did last season, when they were picked 10th. Arizona State had a rough 2012-13 season after Turner Thorne returned from a one-year sabbatical and had to rebuild the program's status among the nation's elite teams. The Sun Devils seemed to do that last season, when they returned to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2011 and beat Vanderbilt to reach the second round.

Pirates spring workouts ? Feb. 25 | TribLIVE




View gallery Houston Astros catcher Jason Castro, left, throws the home ball during a spring training baseball workout ''There's an optimism about this season that didn't exist the last few years,'' general manager Jeff Luhnow said. ''There's always a certain amount of optimism you have because you don't know what's going to happen, but there's an increased expectation and an increased level of optimism for this year.'' Crane, Luhnow and new manager A.J. Hinch had a 90-minute meeting with the team on Wednesday morning where they shared their expectations for the year and schooled the new players on what it has taken to get the franchise where it is today.

Moov Fitness Tracker Adds 7 Minute+ Workout Coach For Folks Who Hate The Gym | TechCrunch




Here's the story from ESPN.com's Gordon Edes : Luis Tiant, the Red Sox Hall of Famer and Cuban legend, said he found out countryman Yoan Moncada was signing with the Red Sox on Sunday night, when he received a call from Ray Negron, his friend and special consultant to the Yankees, another team that went hard after the 19-year-old infielder. "Ray said, Hes going to sign with you guys because of you,'" Tiant said. I guess they talked to the kid." When Moncada was at JetBlue Park for a private workout a couple of weeks ago, the Red Sox made sure Tiant was there. Tiant had breakfast with Moncada, said David Hastings, a Florida-based certified public accountant who handled negotiations for the player. "Luis Tiant is a great ambassador for the Red Sox," Hastings said Monday. "I don't speak Spanish, so I don't have a clue what they were talking about, but they struck up a pretty good friendship.

Mohamed Fall LA Fitness lawsuit: Gym prohibited Muslim from praying in locker room - Story




A female patron told police a man attacked her by pulling her from a workout machine and wrestling her to the ground where he attempted to sexually assault her. She fought him off and ran. He fled, but was caught two days later not far from the workout facility. Greg Cenatiempo, one of the owners of the 22 club chain, said someone held the door open and the suspect managed to get in without swiping a membership pass card. Management added an overnight desk person to the staff at the Brentwood club in the 5300 block of Muscik Memorial Drive to improve security. Some members said there are new signs in the facility emphasizing the rule not to let anyone in if they dont swipe their scan cards. The club is located in an office and retail complex just west of Hanley Rd and south of I-64/40. It is within walking distance of a MetroLink station.

New facility in DuBois will offer gym, mentors for students - WJAC WJACTV.com - Local News Headlines




"The strange thing is, he's been doing it for a year there," Fall's attorney Tim Burke said. "It hasn't bothered anyone." Burke also said Fall's commitment to fitness has not stopped him from using the LA Fitness facility, "but the experience hasn't been the same since," he said. "He's constantly looking over his shoulder." "He feels he's being treated differently than other people (at the gym) because of his religion," Burke said. The lawsuit states prayer has been a component of Falls athleticism since his days at Ohio Christian University, where he was captain of the basketball team. Fall said he was allowed to practice his religion in the locker room before and after team practice and games.

A plank is a full-body isometric exercise that provides strength benefits to many muscle groups simultaneously. If you've never tried a plank, your first one may be a challenge, as holding the position correctly takes core strength and endurance. But don't give up; there is a modification for every fitness level. If you are expecting to knock off some of that abdominal flab, remember that no abdominal exercise will do that for you. Fat loss comes in another package, one that combines healthy eating and "whole body" exercise (cardiovascular and resistance training).

Why Phillies aren?t landing Cubans




But the juxtaposition of their inaction with Boston's boldness certainly doesn't help the impression that they are a team without a concrete plan. In 2012, the Red Sox and the Phillies were both coming off disappointing seasons that seemed to be harbingers of imminent decline. Since then, Boston has won a World Series and remade its roster by trading for pitchers Rick Porcello, Wade Miley and Joe Kelly and signing free agents Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval while outbidding everyone for Moncada and Castillo. For the Phillies, meanwhile, an offseason that began with Amaro and president Pat Gillick preaching the need to acquire and develop young, cornerstone types is now drawing to a close without the addition of any such players.

The editorial mantra, he said, is to be nonpartisan and "not dumbed down." The idea is to offer a sophisticated take on events, not just "inside baseball" fare for political junkies. "I don't mean to sound grandiose, but I don't believe anyone else is doing, or attempting to do, what we're doing," he said. Actually, it seems that a number of news organizations have pretty much the same idea. CNN, for example, has long had go!! a popular website but it is trying to forge more interaction between its digital and TV sides in its political coverage.
