The towel every exerciser needs!

"I am worth it" workout towel

A great quote, always worth remembering!

How fabulous is this towel? Just when your motivation is waning to hit the gym — or do another 15 minutes on the treadmill or elliptical — just one look at this quote will reinvigorate you! (100% cotton; available for $10.95 from inperspire.com). Just one of the things I’m loving today…

As the former editor in chief of Shape (the active lifestyle magazine) for 5 years, I personally spoke with a lot of women (thousands over the years, from around the nation) and what I found is this: it's not easy to stay healthy, to get (and stay) fit, and to stem the weight gain tide (and even the tide of disease) that inevitably happens to us as we get older.
