We hope you've been following us on Twitter and Facebook. In addition to our own stories from our website, we've posted several good stories from other news sources over the last few days.

For instance, this story in The New York Times questions whether we need all that technology to enjoy our workouts. The story suggests our brains need a little downtime, too.

This eye-catcher from the Memphis Commercial Appeal highlights a second-grade class in Mississippi where the students sit on exercise balls at their desks.

Over the weekend, a 73-year-old competed in the Life Time Fitness Chicago Triathlon for the 28th consecutive time.

And we found a couple of personal favorites: a feature on Club Industry columnist and Gold's Gym franchisee Blair McHaney as well as a story about a former LA Fitness general manager who is trying to make the roster of the NFL's Detroit Lions.

Which story is your favorite? Let us know on our Twitter or Facebook pages.
