Speaking of Fitness (to Whoever Will Listen)
Kymberly Williams-Evans, MA
Heeeeelp us! Back in junior high days, Alexandra and I got sent to the principal’s office on a semi-regular basis. We had been caught being naughty — repeatedly. What was our transgression? “Talking too much in class.” Yakety Yak: Don’t Talk Back
Anyone caught by surprise with that one? Shocked to know we still talk a lot? Professionally!! On stages; on air; with mics; and audiences!
Yes, in addition to co-hosting our radio show on voiceamerica.com — Active Aging for Boom Chicka Boomers — we present at conferences, retreats, community get-togethers, book club meetings, charity events as professional speakers. Speakers who can use your help.
My sister and I want to offer the healthiest, most relevant, helpful sessions possible that attract those who hire speakers and those who listen to them. Below are titles and descriptions of some of our presentations. Which two or three speak to you most? (See, we’re not the only ones who get to talk around here).
Our goal? To bring our message of active aging to more people; Your role? Share your top picks in the comments section below. Please give us your opinion and vote on the topics you’d be most likely to attend, book, or refer to others. Pretty sure you burn a few calories when you comment.

While pretty much ANY type of exercise will help the brain (and body, of course), certain approaches give you the MOST bang for your brain buck. So which elements are the ones to pay attention to and incorporate into your workout program if you have a goal to improve cognitive abilities?
