Jordan Hollenbeck, an account executive for ActiveResortSolutions, recently returned from his trip to Ethiopia. The appreciation Jordan shared with me from everyone he worked with/provided clothing to, was tremendous. All, we did a really good thing for these kids and adults alike. THAT's ActiveX, we're all about making changes.

ActiveX "Absolute Beginners"

Posted by ActiveArch Aug 12, 2009


We're excited to announce the addition of ActiveX Absolute Beginners! The purpose of AXAB is to provide a monthly introduction to ActiveX and start to build an initial base of fitness. Our foucs will be on learning good form, get the body used to the new loads/demands that is being put on it, and start having some fun at the XBox!



I will post the workouts for ActiveX Absolute Beginners after every session for those that want to follow online. Good luck!
