Here’s a nice comment from a client of Coach Lynn, one of the awesome coaches here at MTA. Congrats Jenn on your success!
On top of that, she has gotten me from run/walking 30 seconds/1 minute to running non-stop and from a 16:30 minute mile (on a good day) to my current 13:30 mile. I’ve also lost 42 pounds! And all of this has been through illness, injury, and while working as a frontline healthcare worker during a pandemic.
I’ve been a listener to the podcast from the beginning and have been through many ups and downs physically and emotionally. This podcast and this MTA family has been such a positive force in my life, showing me that I can do hard things (thanks Angie ❤). -Jenn Greenly December 15th 2020

When you begin to train in earnest, one question will naturally arise: Can I also run on a treadmill, or should I solely focus on running outdoors? Let’s look at the pros and cons of both to answer that question. Continue Reading →
Athletes don’t necessarily make the best role models when it comes to leading a healthy life. They may train daily, eat well, and keep tabs on their fitness levels, but they also tend to harbor a few poor habits. One of those is that they often ignore rest and recovery. Continue Reading →

Why should you work your calves?
Balance and correct proportions are staples of an attractive figure. You may have seen how people who tend to skip leg days have buffed upper body but thin and weak leg muscles. Such figures look disproportionately developed, and therefore a bit cartoonish and comic. And the same goes for separate parts of the body. So, if you want to have nice-looking toned legs, you need to perform calf exercises along with exercises that target your quads, hamstrings, and glutes, which are slightly more popular among fitness enthusiasts. Calf exercises will not only promote more balanced muscle development but also help you burn calories, improve your leg strength, and boost your calf flexibility. Continue Reading →
