Sarah Hayes FBB Armwrestles Old Man In Video, Wins WIth Both Arms

Frankly, I think the guy in the video was just no match for Sarah Hayes, who has more potential than she realizes. He did get "womanhandled" as she put it. But what's interesting is the guys watching -- what a motley crew of folks! LOL!

Buffi The Gym Girl - My New Sim Game - BuffiTheGymGirl.com


Regular visitors to our blog are undoubtedly saying "What?!" but I've not forgotten the basics of Sports Business Simulations: our sim games.  But I've spent so much time developing the video-blogs, online marketing and online reputation management aspect of the business, that I had to delay the introduction of my third classroom sim: Buffi The Gym Girl.

What's Buffi The Gym Girl?

BUFFI THE GYM GIRL BETA is a simulation of a very real, daily activity: going to the gym and the reasons why we pick a gym or leave one. Since some consider gyms as great places to meet people, and to date, it comes as no suprise that people change gyms based on clientele. Enter Buffi, expertly played by actress Cynthia Lee (with her sister Mary Lee playing "Buffi's Sister".) 

Buffi is a beautiful, intelligent girl-next-door, approachable, talkative, and totaly hot and famous star gym rat and personal trainer. She's not shy about her opinions and if she comes to your gym, all kind of good things happen, namely, membership skyrockets.

Your job as gym owner is to make the right decisions to keep Buffi happy and prevent her from leaving and yet make a profit at the same time. You have several decisions you can make, from the monthly fee to use the gym, to the number of sales representatives you need to get new members, the money you spend on marketing and maintenance, the number of employees you have, and if you should expand the gym, provided you can do so.

BUFFI THE GYM GIRL is a system dynamics sim, so there are some business dynamics to be aware of. First, you can have too many members.

If you do, and Buffi's at your gym, she will leave.

You can spend too little money on maintenance, and if you do, Buffi will not come to your gym. You can have too few employees, and risk losing Buffi and everyone else. Or you can have too few amenities, and not get Buffi at all.

The question for you is can you run a successful gym and do without Buffi? That's something you will have to figure out for yourself, either for fun or as part of a business or sport management or fitness management class.  If you're interested in using this for your class, call me, Zennie Abraham, its creator, at 510-387-9809 or email: zennie@sportsbusinesssims.com

Research is emerging to suggest that our biological thermostats are set to slightly different levels.

Adrienne Bailon Nude Photo Scandal Hoax!

Adrienne Bailon is a Disney Cheetah Girl who claimed nude photos of her were stolen, then put on the Internet. Well, it's all a hoax set up by her friend who's a Hollywood publicist.  Watch my video to learn why. Female bodybuilders should take note of the downfall of sloppily posting their photos without thought.

Jennifer Sedia Blacked Out At The Olympia

Jennifer Sedia, originally uploaded by genexmagazine.

In this photo, female bodybuilder Jennifer Sedia has collapsed after blacking out. On the "Get Big" forum, a writer, "Ron", explained:

"She was holding her breath too long and blacked out, but she is perfectly fine. Especially after placing 10th, in her first Olympia and being the lightest girl up there."

Nicole Ramirez Female Bodybuilder By GeneX

Nicole Ramirez, originally uploaded by genexmagazine.

I saw this post at the GeneX forum about Nicole..

Nicole Clark-Ramirez (nclark@massasoit.mass.edu) has been teaching as an adjunct in the English department at Massasoit Community College and Emerson College for about 3-4 years, and has added Bridgewater State College to her repertoire this past fall.

She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College in early 2003 and attended Boston University, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and UMASS-Boston for her eventual BA in English and Art. While completing her undergraduate degree, she worked for Boston Children's Services (now the Home for Little Wanderers) in both the HSP and EPiC programs. HSP (Healthy, Strong, and Proud) was a Boston area HIV peer prevention group that targeted glbtqs (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, questioning, and straight) youth. But EPiC was her main concern.

EPiC (every person counts) was a very small group that traveled to urban area community centers and high schools (such as Revere High and Roxbury Community Center) to perform self-created presentations on anti-homophobia, anti-racism, and anti-violence for mostly at-risk youth of color. Nicole sees diversity as a necessity in the college classroom; everything from texts to conversations should embrace all diversities in our society, and she hopes that all instructors and professors feel the same.

As an under-30, half-Cuban, mostly-closeted lesbian, she brings a bit of age, racial and sexual diversity to the NECIT seminar. Nicole plans to get her PhD or EdD and strives for the elusive job of a full-time professor. In her five minutes of spare time each week, she attempts to embrace her Cuban roots, read The New Yorker, work out at the gym, and write poetry.
