The Benefits To Eating Seafood

—Lynette Pettinicchi
A thlete or not, protein is an important part of everyone’s diet. It gives you the energy you need to take on the day or get through a workout. You may not realize it, but seafood is a great source of energy and provides several additional health benefits thanks to omega-3 fats.

Maintaining Proper Health For Your Dog

Laura Laucella
It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to be consistent with daily exercise and proper diets. Now that the warm weather has arrived going out for a jog is more pleasant than ever. But don’t just go for a jog alone; bring your dog with you. Exercising your dog is just as important as is maintaining your own health.

It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to be consistent with daily exercise and proper diets. Now that the warm weather has arrived going out for a jog is more pleasant than ever. But don’t just go for a jog alone; bring your dog with you. Exercising your dog is just as important as is maintaining your own health. Dogs are more similar to humans than we think. They need the proper amount of physical activity daily as well as treats, commands and toys to keep their minds busy. Pawtopia founder and personal dog trainer Colleen Demling of San Francisco spoke with the Queens Scene to help us gain insightful on how to keep our furry friends healthy at home.

Free Outdoor Fitness

Lynette Pettinicchi
Instead of sitting inside of a gym or fitness studio during these bouts of nice weather, take your workout outdoors. After the winter we had, do you really want to be glued to a treadmill watching TV? Fortunately for Astorians who may need a little motivation from a group class, there are plenty of free outdoor workout options to fulfill your needs.
