Answered by Karin Singleton on May 14, 2013

Hi Vikki, I am also a lobbyist for giving it your own try. Creating your own web site is not that difficult any more with excellent software available. I used Serif Webplus to do mine. I make occasional changes in content and also have a class schedule on my site which I update constantly. I b...

6 Answers | Asked by Lindsey Wold on May 13, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 13, 2013

3 Answers | Asked by Diane Raymond on May 11, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 12, 2013

Hi Diane, I looked at it at a bookstore. I can see where the allure is. It is a 28-day program which, as it claims, can be repeated over and over. It cuts out all sugary stuff, caffeine and alcohol and really promotes 'real foods'. While it is 'restrictive', it cuts out the bad stuff, and a 2...

Hi Melissa, I have in the past with those clients who were candidates for this kind of training. I fitted into their overall periodization training plan. As LaRue said, it can be a lot of fun and very challenging at the same time. At this point in time, I personally do not have clients for wh...

6 Answers | Asked by Sarah MacColl on May 06, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 10, 2013

Hi Sarah, since she knows that she already has lost some BMD, I assume that the test was done by her physician and that she is cleared for exercise.

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 08, 2013

Hi Megan, when I am not able to train because I am going to a conference or on vacation, I know it always well in advance. So I prepare for that time of absence with workouts that my clients will do on their own. I don't even bother to try to find a 'replacement'. It's not that I consider mys...
