Paul’s Latest Blog Post: Video campaign aims to show, not tell (Boston.com)

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

So you’ve probably figured out that my Truth on Health Campaign has a lot of stuff goin on. One of the things I do as part of it is make fitness videos for kids so I’m not just tellin them to get fit, but also showing them how. We've embedded a preview clip from my new video in this blog entry.

We shot this one outside to get you all in the mood for the spring weather that’s right around the corner. Since kids are sitting in the classroom on weekdays, it’s good for them to get outside after school and on weekends and get their bodies moving, get the blood pumping, get some fresh air in their lungs. By the way… these videos aren’t just for kids. Parents, teens, adults – jump in and give it a try! Even if you can’t get outside, these are exercises you can do anywhere, even at school. Makes the school day go faster, too.

This week’s video shows real basic ways to increase strength and agility. One really easy one is walking on your tippy toes. That’s not just for ballerinas — professional basketball players do it, too. Just get up on those toes and walk around for 30 seconds at a time and repeat. Another good one is heel kicks. You run in place, but kick your heels up higher than a normal run. You’ll feel it workin the back of your legs. And that burn’s a good sign…

Paul’s Latest Blog Post: Great Time To Be a Fan in Boston (Boston.com)

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

I can tell you as an athlete there’s nothing better than your team goin on a roll. I remember when we won all those games in a row back in 2008, it just felt like everything was clicking. We’d obviously been through the trenches together after getting #17, and then bringing back mostly the same team so it’s no surprise, but it was one of those times when you just feel you got it all goin on. Getting contributions from everywhere. Starters, second unit, guys at the end of the bench. Everyone does their part. And when it’s all goin on for you like that, it seems like all the little things start to go your way too. The bounces, the calls, everything. But of course I always say, you make your luck.

And that’s what it feels like is happening right now when you take a look at the Boston sports scene. This city is on a roll! Being here in Boston now makes me appreciate how special this city is when it comes to sports.

I mean, there’s been a lot of talk about how Boston’s been the best sports town of the decade with the Pats winning 3, the Sox getting 2 and us winning banner 17.

And, if you look around right now, it doesn’t seem like there is an end in sight.

Paul’s Latest Blog Post: The Truth Strikes Again (Boston.com)

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

By Paul Pierce

Now, if you know anything about me, you know I love bowling. Other than hoops, it’s probably my favorite activity, and I try to sneak in a string or two with my friends and family whenever I get the chance.

That’s why I’m really looking forward to lacing up the kicks and throwing strikes at my annual Truth Strikes Again fundraiser for my Truth Fund this Friday night down at Foxwoods. With all of the games we’ve been playing, I’m thinking this will be a great chance to kick back with the fellas, fans and VIPs for a night of fun.

But rest assured I take this seriously. I’m pretty competitive in everything I do, and the same goes for bowling.
