There are certain people in this world that are magnetic. You know, the kind of person that people are simply drawn to. Where they go, people follow. What they do, people want to be a part of. And Ratona Harr is absolutely one of those people. 

Ratona was a regular ole 9-5er. For nearly 20 years, she held a high powered job in marketing and communications, but a part of her felt unfulfilled. One Saturday, she took a high low aerobics fitness class at Fitworks, and never looked back. At the time, she was juggling a demanding full-time job that required travel,...

On a hot and sticky July morning, I rolled up to Liberty Center in northern Cincinnati for my first ever Fit4Mom workout class. Not yet a mom myself, the only experience I’d had incorporating kids and fitness was running after - and sometimes away from - my nieces and nephews. The class was called Stroller Strides, which I imagined would mostly be jogging with cute babies and kids around the mall. Well, I was TOTALLY wrong (except for the cuteness factor!).

The class was not only challenging, but the hour flew by as we moved around to different stations with s...

A lot of times when I have a big problem or decision to make I ruminate about it my mind. I think about all the possible solutions and outcomes and, obviously, all the potential landmines. After hours of driving myself crazy, I’ll bring the said problem to a friend or my husband in an exasperated heap of uncertainty. That person, not engrossed in the problem like me, will usually bring a new perspective, a fresh set of eyes. And, it is with this new perceptive that I often find the answer, choose my decision, or at least think about the problem in a completel...
