About this blogWe want to create a fun and inviting space to share knowledge about healthy living to help our community get stronger and feel better. We don't want you to sweat the small stuff -- having the latest tennis shoes, belonging to the best gym or running a mile in record time. We want you to know that it's not a big deal to get started -- or keep going -- in this health and fitness journey. We want this blog to be a place for everyone -- no matter what your interest or fitness level. We can all do this together. No Sweat, York.
