We have the difference between men and women in the intensity-type training and classes, a big sell-off by a well-known club chain, how to pick the right trainer for you, and, in case you missed it, a list of IHRSA 2014 roundups and recaps from other organizations and writers.

Of course, all of this can be found daily on the IHRSA blog.
