Some Fitness Tips from a friend of mine...Boyd Myers Greetings! I'm a very straight-forward trainer, so I'm going to tell you a secret that other personal trainers may not want you to know: There are no secret exercises or hidden strategies to help you reach your fitness goals. It takes a lot of dedication, motivation, and education---you have to know how your body works, how muscles react, and how to fuel those muscles.  -Eliminate junk food.

And the...

Continually Express Appreciationfrom www.briantracy.comPerhaps the simplest way to make another person feel good about himself or herself is your continuous expressions of appreciation for everything that person does for you, large or small.

Have a taste for Mexican Food?Fiesta Palace is a little known secret in Merrillville, Indiana.  It is located on Broadway behind Piatak Meats (Near 61st and Broadway)  They are closed on Mondays.The food is excellent, the service is good and the food is authentic.  Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.  The steak flauntas are my favorite.  They have a large banquet room for large get togethers.
