So what actually is Circuit Training? It’s a workout technique where you rotate between aerobic, strength, resistance and cardio exercises, and repeat for a designated amount of time or circuits. What adds to this workout method’s appeal, and part of what has led to its rise in popularity over recent years, is its success as a fat burner and metabolism booster. Combine that with the ability to knock out a full-body workout in as little as 15 minutes and even customize your own circuits and it’s no wonder there are entire gyms dedicated solely to circuit training.

I can’t believe Spring Training is almost over and Opening Day is only a week and a half away! So far my husband and son have already been to 3 games, and they’re going to more during spring break, but they’re lamenting the end of spring training. While I don’t get to as many games as the boys, I do love having the Red Sox and Twins in our neighborhood every year, even if it is only for a month. It’s exciting to watch the teams get back together after their break and find their rhythm, getting revved up for opening day.
