Strong to the Core

May 31st, 2017

Everyone who has worked out in a fitness center or Crossfit class, with a personal trainer or on your own, read an article or even talked with a gym rat – knows about the core. “Strengthen your core,”  “Work on your core,” “Feel it in your core.”  But what does it mean to say you are working your core? The core is usually used interchangeably with your abs, but the core is much more than just your abs. Think of your core muscles as the central link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body.  The muscle groups that make up your core include the rectus abdominis, erector spinae... Read More

Faces of Denver – Thomas Charlton and Davi Salmin

May 31st, 2017

Thomas and Davi are both international graduate students studying Chemical Engineering at The Colorado School of Mines. Thomas came here on exchange and was supposed to only be here for a year; however, he has already extended that by 6 months. Davi has been here for 3 years, first living in Golden then moving to Denver. Although neither considers themselves ‘mountain bikers,’ both use it as an outlet to get their minds off work and to stay in shape, saying “mountain biking is great because we can leave the office, hop on the bike and climb up Lookout.” Thomas is from Perth, Australia,... Read More

Spoiler Alert, Marijuana Makes Money!

May 30th, 2017

On any average day, I would say I see more out-of-state visitors than Colorado ones. So, for the sake of this blog, I began asking customers their thoughts on how long they think it will be until they see any kind of a legalization within their own states. The response I got from most people was, “my state will be the last to legalize weed”. These are grown men and women telling me they have no hope for their state, meanwhile, everyone in line behind them is also from their home state. Why choose to be so dire about the possibilities of legalization back home, regardless of your state’s... Read More

Siemian or Lynch?

May 30th, 2017

It is never too early to discuss Bronco football, and the topic is a familiar one. Who should be the Broncos starting quarterback on opening day? Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch? The Siemian doubters may question his health, his 7th round pedigree, and his questionable upside. The Lynch supporters may look at the strong-armed, 6’7, first rounder Lynch as the answer to the offensive woes of last year. But here are five reasons that Trevor Siemian is the obvious choice for opening day. 1) Experience – Trevor Siemian has started in 14 games for the Denver Broncos. That generally translates... Read More

Denver Colorado: A Very Progressive Place To Be — Most of The Time

May 29th, 2017
Denver capital progressive laws

  It’s not a secret, Colorado is known as being one of the more liberal states out there. In Denver alone for example, 73.59% of the population identifies as being liberal. From our regularly outspoken citizens, to our love of free speech, art, beauty and people’s rights in general, Colorado certainly has made a name for itself with the free spirits of the world. That said, there have been a few key times in the past where Colorado has really lived up to it’s “liberal” persona, coming in way ahead of the game on some pretty key issues. Women’s rights That’s right, Colorado... Read More

Faces of Denver – Michael “Santa” Thein!

May 29th, 2017

Meet Michael “Santa” Thein. The Santa nickname coming from what people like to call him, and between his physical appearance and persona, it is an accurately fitting name. Michael is a very buoyant, upbeat character, radiating with charm as he sits in his wheelchair on the corner of 16th and Champa. He sits with a smile watching people pass by, asking for high fives and small donations-not donations for himself, but donations for the homeless community that he likes to help out. This is where the Santa nickname comes into play, Michael is a very generous and caring person, who is constantly... Read More
