#360 – What a NEAT Idea
Did you know that all the little things you do throughout the day, and we mean the little things, like fidgeting, chewing gum and walking to the restroom can all add up to activity that keeps us healthy? NEAT stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis is the concept and our guest, Tiffany Gust explains all about it on this episode of The Active Life.

#359 – NBA Hall of Famer, Rick Barry
Rick Barry III is truly a basketball legend. He played in both the American Basketball Association (ABA) and National Basketball Association (NBA). He was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in history by the NBA, he ranks among the most prolific scorers and all-around players in basketball history and is the only one to lead the NCAA, ABA, and NBA in points per game in a season. Barry also is the only player to reach the 50-point mark in a Game 7 of the playoffs in either league. He is one of only four players to be a part of a championship team in both leagues.
And there’s a whole lot more…But in addition to all the basketball accolades, add gold medalist at the Huntsman World Senior Games pickleball tournament to the list.
