Doing some simple math, 40 years ago would make it 1974.

For those of you who weren't around that year, the mantra of 74' and the world was energy crisis -gasoline was a little hard to get and lines at gas stations were blocks long. Because of the crisis, our then President, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon imposed a 55 MPH speed limit on highways. That wasn't the re...

She tells Fitness magazine, "A friend suggested I try Bikram yoga. At first the idea of doing a 90-minute work-out in a 105-degree room sounded like torture. But the sweating is exactly what I became addicted to.
