Elsey Curtis – I-Jumpin’!

January 27, 2012 By: Elsey Curtis

In spite of loving the members, staff, and unique atmosphere at The Square, I was overwhelmed with an immediate case of workout envy after visiting my grand daughter’s gym.  Certain differences between her fitness center and mine were obvious.  Natural sunlight streamed through the extensive glassed-in length of her building and set a positive tone…

January 6, 2012 By: Elsey Curtis

Gym-goers and non-exercise buffs alike normally resolve to take off a few pounds this time of year.  Although vowing to get fit has intrinsic allure and is totally worthwhile, myriad choices abound.  Do we pursue a solo workout program or join a boot camp class?  Do we concentrate on eliminating snacks or focus on portion…

Elsey Curtis – A Life of Crime?

March 3, 2011 By: Elsey Curtis

Last month I celebrated a b-day, the one that immediately precedes becoming an official senior citizen.  If you think I’m 61, I’m flattered you include me in a younger set since I see-saw somewhere between avoiding atrophy and hoping to find fitness. At the gym recently during a Body Pump class, I scarcely recognized an image of myself in the…

Elsey Curtis – Thankful for “Bad” Habits

October 29, 2010 By: Elsey Curtis

Trees shed their leaves down to skeletal limbs and bare branches in November.  Their stark outlines against somber skies inspire us to strip away excess fluff and stuff in our own lives.  Reflecting upon what is truly vital and essential often leads to a sense of release, if not gratitude. In keeping with this seasonal…
