Fitness in a flash
Gyms promote maximum results in minimal time
BY BREUSE HICKMAN
Is it possible to get fit quickly?
Perhaps. It depends on who you ask -- and how you go about getting there.
Fitness experts always have touted a common mantra: To be fit, you must work out for five times a week, at least an hour each session.
But try telling that to the workaholic who doesn't get home until 9 p.m. or parents whose free time is spent chauffeuring kids to extracurricular activities.
Finding that hour to devote to physical fitness can be more exhausting than running a marathon.

Run before the marathon
October 21, 2007
Don't just put on your running shoes and speed off. There?s serious work to be done before you can enter this big race.
Even though Ashish Roy is 75 years old, he is all set for October 28. At his age, running a marathon might seem to be a daunting task. But Roy remains unfazed. Having run marathons all over the globe, he knows how to prepare: and he starts a month in advance, something which most fitness experts prescribe. ?'If you think that one fine day you get up and run a marathon, you won't be able to last a couple of kilometres,' he says.

Runners benefit from weight-training program
By Amy Donaldson
Oct. 18, 2007
I am a creature of habit. It's not that I don't like to try new things. I just really love my comfort zone.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the way I train. I have been working out essentially the same way for about 12 years. I did a weightlifter's workout on my legs about twice a week, usually on days I didn't run or when I was running less than three miles. I rarely work my upper body and, in fact, hadn't worked my back since I ran my first marathon in 2006.

5 things to know about athletic shoes
October 16, 2007
We will refrain from saying Bill Reynolds has sole. Or that he is a shoe-in for telling us how to buy athletic shoes. We will simply say he has been in the sporting business 32 years, that he owns New Balance DFW, which has five stores in the area, and he has made many shoe-related observations. He shares five of them with us:

Low-cost training shoes just as good as expensive ones: study
11th Oct 2007
Runners who buy expensive training shoes in the belief that these are less likely to cause injury are deluding themselves, according to a study that appears on Thursday.
Researchers in Scotland tested running shoes, made by three manufacturers, that fell into three price bands -- low (40-45 pounds or 58-65 euros, 56.4-63 dollars); medium (60-65 pounds, or 87-94 euros, 84-91 dollars) and high (70-75 pounds, or 101.4-108.7 euros, 98.7-105.75 dollars).
