Hordon Healthy Lifestyle

Start Spring off with a smile!

Spring time, the best time of the year I think! Warmer weather, flowers in bloom and spring training for those summer sport athletes like myself; but for some there is a lot of anxiety that comes with spring – wearing skirts and shorts, going sleeveless, and bathing suits right around the corner. 

If you started your new year with a resolution to get fit, eat healthy, or lose weight, and you either fell off the wagon or haven’t reached your goals yet, now is your second chance at Hordon Health!

Part One of a Series on the Law of Diminishing Returns, and The Exercise Tracking Business.


As a coach, lifelong athlete, and avid exerciser, I am a fan of anything that motivates people to be healthier.



I have met, and respect Richard Simmons because he convinced millions of unhealthy people to get off their couches and “Sweat to the Oldies”.




Even with all of its many faults and dangers, I would rather have sedentary or obese folks get addicted toCrossFitthan continue their addiction to television and fried food. So, a few years back, when the pedometer craze started in earnest, I was on board.

Sand Sprints for Beach Volleyball

For those of you who are preparing for the 2014 beach volleyball season and enjoy the beach exercises or just want to try an awesome beach workout give this one a try.

Sprint 50yards in sand
Vertical Hops x3 in sand

In this workout your effort has to be 100% for the entire 50-meter sprint and 3 vertical hops!  You then rest for the remainder of the minute.  This is repeated at the start of each minute for 15 minutes.  I found myself repeating the term “all out” as I started each round.

Mother Nature Was Our Valentine


So, let me get right down to the truth; this Valentine's Day weekend was one of the two or three best 48 hour periods for us East Coast riders of snow in the past three seasons. Nearly every major mountain in the region, from Whiteface to Sugarloaf saw north of a foot of fresh snow from the latest, big, named, winter storm.The Boston Institute of Snowdecided to drive through the storm Thursday night up to Sunday River (who got close to 20") to make Friday one of our patented Adult Snow days.

Endurance for Volleyball Players

I don’t understand why so many volleyball players run. Maybe they just don’t know how to train for volleyball-specific muscle endurance or perhaps they were told that running was the fastest way to lose weight (it isn’t) and they don’t care how it affects their game. But if you’re looking to train to improve your game, here are a few things to think about, especially when training in the off-season.


Traditional cardio, running, biking, elliptical, etc., will not whip you into volleyball shape because it doesn’t engage the correct muscle system and heart rate needed in volleyball.
