Recently there have been many gym members asking various questions about stretching, its use, and forms of application. Stretching is a topic that is often confusing, polarizing, or that offers an incomplete message.

Growing up, I always struggled with my weight. I did the whole yo-yo thing quite a bit as a result. I was heavy through grade school, and at the beginning of high school, I was introduced to the all-too-familiar “low-carb diet” and, despite eating terribly (bacon and cheese), I had lost some weig

Five years ago I hosted a group of committed "staff members" (aka, my family and Teri Miller, City Gym's first employee) in the yet-to-be-finished City Gym KC. I had somehow convinced them to join me in my gorilla marketing efforts by passing out CG green water bottles at the Brookside Annual Art Fair all weekend.

Who is that girl?  The girl who smiles in class, greets and chats with everyone whom she sees, and simply makes people feel good when she is around????  That girl is Mary W., one of our favorite members at City Gym. Working out is one of Mary's passions, and you will often see her in SPIN and Zumba Classes as well as walking on the treadmill and lifting weights.

When Mary is not working out, she spends time at St. Peter’s Catholic Church as a volunteer assistant as well as works at the YMCA Children's Center Campus.  She loves working with children and helping them learn how to play with each other.
