I was always one of the last to be picked in gym class. Times haven’t changed much.

I obviously wouldn’t know much about being fit, but I know a few people who do.

We interviewed quite a few of them from the area for this special fitness issue, helping you to get back into shape or simply maintain where you’re at now. It’s not the kind of advice you’ll find in fitness magazines or infomercials – this is practical stuff that even I could follow. Even for those who go to the gym regularly, we’ve highlighted some interested fads and oddball ways to exercise you probably never considered.

We also have some brand new regular features to introduce in this issue, including a bi-weekly fashion column called Securely Fashioned and a monthly Book Club column for the casual reader.

As usual you’ll find quite a variety of content this week. Since I started as editor last year, I found that you can learn about pretty much anything in our pages.

Now if only I can follow through by skipping a concert to go pump some iron instead.

Maybe that will be next year’s resolution. I doubt you can teach this old dog some new tricks, but I’ll always gladly read (and write) about them.
