Co-hosts Matt Gajtka and Larry Snyder welcome back sportswriter Jon Rudder to help analyze the Pens' remarkable surge from all angles. What's been the most impressive part of their perfect March? Are there any glaring weaknesses that could be addressed by the upcoming trade deadline? Matt and Larry also ask Jon about other NHL news, including the newly-approved realignment plan for next fall. Who are the winners and losers, and where do the Penguins fall in that spectrum.

    Get Unshakable Confidence with Fitness Model Dave Shutler

    in Fitness

    Born and raised in Saint Clairsville, Ohio, Dave Shutler started weightlifting when he was in junior high school.Not only was Dave overtraining, but also he was also not taking the right supplements and eating poorly. It was not until he got into college that things changed. Dave started reading books and researching everything and anything about health, fitness, bodybuilding, nutrition, and any other related topic.

    After graduating from Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA with a degree in Intelligence Studies, Dave went to Washington DC to work for the Secret Service for 3½ years, while continuing his training and being certified as a personal trainer.

    Dave has entered many natural bodybuilding and fitness competitions in the past couple of years. He has entered Fitness Model America competitions in NYC, Miami & Vegas and placed 12th out of 75+ competitors in Miami, 15th out of 45+ in Vegas, and 3rd in NYC. He has also won the novice class in the OCB Yorton Cup Natural Bodybuilding Championships in 2009 in Washington DC, and in every other bodybuilding show, Dave has competed in; he has always placed in the top five.

    Dave believes that fitness is a personal thing and to each his own, but his preference is to be in shape all the time. His workout routine is usually at the gym 4-5 days a week lifting weights and doing cardio 3-4 days at least. He takes one day completely off and rest, and the other rest day involves some light cardio or walking on a treadmill.

    Dave is not only a certified personal trainer, but has recently graduated from massage therapy school and is also a licensed massage therapist, which he will combine with his personal training.
    Dave currently resides in Alexandria, Virginia.
