Recent Articles by Peggy Hall

For the past ten years, I've been writing for a variety of national fitness magazines. My specialty is to take an unusual spin on the boring old advice that seems to pop up all the time -- so you won't read things like "eat less and exercise more"!

Instead, I share little-known, super-effective, fun and surprising practical tips that really work! These are workouts, recipes and eating plans that I have personally created and tried out in my own life and used successfully with my own clients.

My advice may fly in the face of "conventional wisdom" but that's exactly how I like it!
