Max Fitness, opening next week on Route 1, has helped clients undergo dramatic weight loss without the use of gimmicks or crash dieting.
After a difficult pregnancy left his wife and newborn son in the hospital for over a year, martial arts instructor Bryan Klein soon saw his own health deteriorate. Driving from his home in Manalapan to a hospital in New York City each day began to wreak havoc on his diet and overall fitness level several years ago. "After the whole ordeal was over and we had returned to normal life, I had gained over 100 pounds," Klein said. "It became difficult to fulfill my job duties.

Report warns even small reductions in Social Security, Medicare would be big drain on state's economy.
Concerned that their voices are being ignored in Washington, D.C., New Jersey small-business owners and advocates spoke out yesterday against potential cuts to Social Security and Medicare. The teleconference highlighted a white paper from the Main Street Alliance, which argued that even small cuts to the two programs could have disproportionately large effects on businesses still struggling to work their way out of the Great Recession. “Even a 3 percent cut to Social Security and Medicare would mean an annual loss of more than $1 billion a year to New Jersey’s economy,” said Rep. Donald Payne Jr. (D-10th Dist.), who participated in the presentation. The report’s release came in the wake of the budget cuts presented by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-…
