comment How can I improve my running form?
I've always heard you should NOT land on your heel. The barefoot/minimalist "movement" says the opposite.

comment How do I get non-sports people to get exercise or do an activity?
I definitely agree with this and see it as a major roadblock for most people in similar situations. I do just what you say and agree that it's the best approach. I simply label them as this in the question to make it clearer on what I'm dealing with. Thank you for the good response, though. I'm in the same boat as you: IT/sys admin, but daily lift/run/bike cardio and multiple times a week "real" sports like basketball/football/golf, etc.

There are a couple of groups: Some are people we've met after we moved here, some are coworkers, some are wife's coworkers.

comment Effect of protein intake on muscle recovery
Yes, there are similar themes, but recovering/preparing for cardio intensive is different from pure strength training. It's similar in that you can't do strength every day if going for max weight vs max reps. This is related: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/5725/…

See question #1. Unfortunately, this is SD, and we are tiny. I've only found the old version of the NB ones, and the Five Fingers so far.

comment How to determine the highest quality fish oil?
There are different brands at Wal-Mart, sometimes. I'm guessing it's talking about the SPECIFIC Walmart "in house" brand, so don't assume everything sold there is good.

I knew my question looked too short. I forgot to add that I did think about Zappos. Haven't heard about runningwarehouse.com though. Really wish more physical stores had them.

comment Will calcium supplements affect my strength gain?
I'm also interested, and also named Matt. I think the question should be more like " Will calcium supplements affect a person's strength gains? " +"in a measurable way" or something to that effect.
