Are we what we eat?
To a degree both engrossing and alarming, the story of fast food is the story of postwar Amerca. Though created by a handful of mavericks, the fast food industry has triggered the homogenization of our society. Fast food has hastened the malling of our landscape, widened the chasm between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of obesity, and propelled the juggernaut of American cultural imperialism abroad. That’s a lengthy list of charges, but Eric Schlosser makes them stick with an artful mix of first-rate reportage, wry wit, and careful reasoning.
Schlosser’s myth-shattering survey stretches from the California subdivisions where the business was born to the industrial corridor along the New Jersey Turnpike where many of fast food’s flavors are concocted. He hangs out with the teenagers who make the restaurants run and communes with those unlucky enough to hold America’s most dangerous job — meatpacker. He travels to Las Vegas for a giddily surreal franchisers’ convention where Mikhail Gorbachev delivers the keynote address. He even ventures to England and Germany to clock the rate at which those countries are becoming fast food nations.
Along the way, Schlosser unearths a trove of fascinating, unsettling truths — from the unholy alliance between fast food and Hollywood to the seismic changes the industry has wrought in food production, popular culture, and even real estate. He also uncovers the fast food chains’ efforts to reel in the youngest, most susceptible consumers even while they hone their institutionalized exploitation of teenagers and minorities. Schlosser then turns a critical eye toward the hot topic of globalization — a phenomenon launched by fast food.
FAST FOOD NATION is a groundbreaking work of investigation and cultural history that may change the way America thinks about the way it eats.

Check out this great article by Self Magazine on danger of dating strangers while on vacation
At one point, as a single woman, you likely met a handsome, charming guy on summer vacation. Then, when he asked you out, you had this debate in your head: He’s cute. But I know zip about him. And that Natalee Holloway case really freaks me out. He’s just so charming. And kinda looks like Brad Pitt. But, really, he could be a total creep. Decisions… decisions…
To make sure we all play it safe this summer, we’re going to follow these rules from Tina B. Tessina, Ph.D. (a.k.a. Dr. Romance), psychotherapist and author of The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again. You should too.
- Don’t get hammered.
- Bring a friend along.
- Go someplace safe.
- Know your emotional limits.
- Don’t look at yourself through your date’s eyes.
- Look for integrity.
- Be very consistent and careful about your sexual safety.
- Know the signs of emotional blackmail.

Fusion Kick Fit will be starting another training session starting March 15, 2010. This is your chance to train in one of the most innovative exercise program that combines fitness kick boxing, stability band/resistant training, functional sports movement, sports yoga and moving mediation, all in one class.
If this sounds intimidating, don’t worry, our instructor has over 16 years of exercise and martial arts experience to help you achieve your fitness goal and help you reduce stress.
How does exercise reduce stress?
- Exercise increases your overall health and your sense of well-being, which puts more pep in your steps every day. But exercise also has some direct stress-busting benefits.
- It pumps up your endorphins. Physical activity helps to bump up the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.
- It’s meditation in movement…. As you begin to regularly shed your daily tensions through movement and physical activity, you may find that this focus on a single task, and the resulting energy and optimism, can help you remain calm and clear in everything that you do.
- It improves your mood. Regular exercise can increase self-confidence and lower the symptoms associated with mild depression and anxiety. This can ease your stress levels and give you a sense of command over your body and your life.

Wow, it has been awhile since I updated my class schedule on the Fusion Kick Fit web site. Going forward I will make sure that the schedule on this web site will be current and up to date.
I also added a class schedule on the side bar for our students’ conveniences.
Founder/Owner of Fusion Kick Fit
I must have at least 2 dozen books on martial arts fitness/boxing/kick boxing workout books. There are several I just read and never go back to. There are a few that are like my Bible that I go back to every so often to improve on my offering for clients and martial arts students.
The Gleason’s Gym Total Body Boxing Workout for Women: A 4-Week Head-to-Toe Makeover is one of these books that I go back to every so often. I don’t agree with all their stances and footwork but there are lot of good nuggets in that book that I culled into my Cardio Kick Boxing Class.
Check out chapter 3 on how to “Live Right” by following sensible food plan. If you are interested in working out just like a boxing you came to the right place. Check out The Ultimate Focus Mitt Workout Personal Training Session
More info about this book:
Roca and Silverglade break down all the boxing basics, from how to make a fist and how to stand, to more advanced boxing moves and various ways of jumping rope and include a nutritional plan to maximize results. “The Gleason’s Gym Total Body Boxing Workout for Women” offers the ultimate workout for women who want to look their best, feel their best, and be their best.
World-renowned trainer Hector Roca and owner of Gleason’s Gym (an icon in the world of boxing), Bruce Silverglade, have published boxing secrets for women in The Gleason’s Gym Total Body Boxing Workout for Women. This book outlines a step-by-step program that promises to get any woman into knockout shape in just four weeks.
I found this book to be well done. It has a 4-week workout schedule with three workouts per week. I am on the third week and not only are my arm muscles developing, but they glow when I finish a workout and I feel great. This is a full-body workout – you don’t stand still and push your arms around. In addition to 3-minute round-style combo punches and defense, you jump rope and do strength exercises (push ups, crunches, flutter kicks). The instruction is well-illustrated and the book does a great job of motivating you. This can be an intense workout, but you’ll feel stronger after each one. You really need to put your all into the workout – no half-hearted punches, and no cheating!
