Amy Routzahn is a friend and she posted an invitation on Facebook, “who’s going to join me Monday for some hot yoga?”  I had had a couple of glasses of wine, so I just jumped on it. Been coming ever since. It’s been a great structure for me.  I’ve never really been an exercise guy and I definitely wasn’t ever a yoga guy. But I always knew that I should be doing something to get into shape/get maintain my health.  This has been something that works for me and I’m really excited about it.

Achieving Complete Fitness at Yen Yoga & Fitness

In 2017, I’m training for a series of spring bicycle races and looking to get back to my old form of being pretty darn competitive at a high level of competition. This year, I’m doing my training exclusively at Yen. My rationale? By adopting a holistic, well-rounded training program of cardio, strength, and recovery, I’ll be fitter, faster, and more prepared for spring races than ever before.
