How do I create a training program?

So it turns out I'm pretty good at my job and I like to teach people. I'm at a place with my job where my department supervisor is comfortable letting me train to new hires and cross-train current employees at my job. I want to create a training program so that I can make sure my trainees are getting the most out of there time with me, but I don't even know where to start. [more inside]

What sports can someone start doing at 30 and become world class at?

Are there any? The only possibilities I can immediately think of are Lawn Bowls and Shooting. And maybe varieties of race car driving (I'm not sure if there's a physical fitness component to this at all?) Is there anything you could say this of that IS a more physical sport?

How can we help our young daughter with her wiping issues?

Our daughter is 6. Since potty training 4 years ago, she hasn't been wiping herself well after going to the bathroom. We though the problem would resolve itself (and sometimes wipe her butt ourselves if she goes at home) but it's not, and what used to cause skin irritation is now causing vaginal infections.

How can I help my coworkers user Gmail/calendar/etc

My company recently decided to move everyone from Outlook to Google Apps. Now a lot of people who are used to Outlook (and MS Office) in all things are being hit with a new environment. It's going okay, but I've volunteered to give a short presentation on how to make the most of the new tools, since I have a lot of experience using them for my personal stuff. Can folks suggest good online resources either for me to mine for tips, or to hand out to users for their own reference later? [more inside]

Where can I find organizing and group facilitation training?

I've recently assumed a role that calls on me to do some serious community-building and group facilitation and I'm feeling pretty unprepared.

Please help me find a term for this strength/endurance concept.

I am looking for a clever descriptive term for the idea of training with a "hardship" that when omitted later, makes you feel super-strong. Like when baseball players put that donut thing on their bats while taking practice swings. (Donuting?) Or when you ride a really heavy bike, then switch to a lighter one. Or practice at high altitudes, and compete at low altitudes. Is there already a term that describes this? If not, I am open to any ideas.

Ed Grimley at Mickey D's

When I was 16, I got a part-time job at McDonald's. I remember being made to watch a training video for the lace, featuring Martin Short as Ed Grimley who was a Mickey D's fry guy or something. I know I wasn't high at the time, I know it really happened! I can't find any evidence of it anywhere, except for a brief mention on Pinterest. Help me find this video!

Nutrition questions for a fitness newbie

So I started working out for real this year as part of my New Year's Resolution. I'm currently doing a version of crossfit, mixed with occasional rock climbing, and I'm seeing good results (Stats below). The problem is that most dieting and training advice I can find for guys is geared towards those who are starting out skinny. I started out overweight and out of shape. I'm currently at what would be a good weight if my BF was lower. What are some good diet resources for someone in my situation? (I like my training regimen and I'm not looking for a new one) [more inside]

How to un-crate-train a puppy

~1 year old Labradoodle name of Twist. Good boy. Crate trained up to this point, house trained so long as we lock him in his crate overnight. Which is the issue. I'd like to start weaning him off of the crate. He seems ready, he has no trouble holding it all night in the crate and it's not like he's rushing for the door in the morning; he'll happily romp around the house while we're getting breakfast etc together. But when I've tried leaving the crate door open overnight he, well, chooses not to wait until morning. Looking for strategies to let him know that that's not okay. [more inside]

Phillyfilter: Where can my boyfriend learn Western-style swordfighting?

I'm looking for schools or groups that offer combat training with authentic Western medieval/renaissance weapons and methods in the Philadelphia area (up to 1.5 hours away is fine).

Puppy Potty Training App

Husband has android phone and I have an iphone. We have a new puppy. We need an APP that will let us sync between us a log of when our pup goes potty (and other puppy things if available) since he leaves for work at 3 and crates our pup, and I come home at 5 and take over for our pup. I cant find it, but there has got to be an app that will easily let us track all things puppy related and share it between the two of us. Maybe not even an app made for dogs? Thanks!

I'm almost finished with my beginner runner program. Now what?

I'm closing in on the end of my couch to 10k running program, and I'm a little unsure how to proceed next. I'd like to improve my pace, but I'm not sure what the best way to do that is, and the internet seems to have lots of conflicting advice. Plus I really liked having a program and an app that told me what to do. Is there anything out there for the no longer a couch potato but still a beginner runner? What's worked for other people? Should I try designing my own training program, and if so, how do I do that? [more inside]

How does a 20 yr old healthyish student get back in shape without dying?

The fact I never liked the "traditional" forms of exercise never bothered me before. That is, until it recently dawned on me activities like going to the gym or running might be the only options I have left. But, with sensitive knees and shins from growing quickly and the residual effects of childhood asthma still occasionally inhibiting my ability to do cardio, these activities seem more foreign than ever.

How to stop a klepto dog

My dog is a kleptomaniac. Anything left in his reach he will steal and chew on and hide. Paper goods, remote controls, anything. He's a freaking 5 lb Chihuahua but nothing is safe if he can reach it or climb to it. After 3 years of being terrorized by his ways I'm wondering if there's any training that can make it so we can trust him to have free reign of the house. [more inside]
