What are you reading?!

Did you make a resolution to read more books? Reading is not only an enjoyable activity, but it’s very healthy for you. Research shows that reading, even just a little bit a day, can significantly improve your brain functioning. When you read a book, your brain is forced to make connections from chapter to chapter and to the outside world, which creates stronger neural pathways and defends against cognitive degeneration. And if that isn’t enough science to convince you, reading can increase your capacity for empathy and compassion. We asked a few of our instructors to talk about their favorite books. Here are three killer reads to add to your reading list. Read More

The Stages Cycling bike is made for serious riders; it’s made for athletes. Read More
