Ravens offensive tackle Jared Gaither will report to the team's voluntary offseason workout program Monday. Gaither said this on his Twitter account, and a league source later confirmed it. Ravens coach John Harbaugh expressed his disappointment with Gaither's absence in talking to reporters Tuesday. Apparently, the message got through to Gaither. A restricted free agent, Gaither will earn $2.3 million this season, but he has yet to sign his tender. He is seeking a long-term deal.

A winning football team is finally coming to Towson University. It’s the Ravens -- well, 20 or so of the team's players -- who will be holding unofficial workouts on Towson’s campus later this month. Veteran receiver Derrick Mason organized the workouts so Ravens players in the area can stay sharp during the NFL lockout. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter , as many as 25 players will join Mason for “offseason workouts, training and conditioning” at Towson on May 24-26.

You don't need to be a ballerina to get the muscle tone and posture of a dancer. At the Bel Air Athletic Club's barre class, you'll navigate the same waist-height handrail prima ballerinas use for warmups, no pointe shoes required. “With barre, it's really the perfect exercise for a woman's body,” says Lori Berry, a fitness instructor at Bel Air Athletic Club who teaches barre. “In the beginning, you use 3- to 5-pound weights, and again, it's isometric movements, so you may be working your biceps with a smaller range and it's less weight.” Whereas Pilates, a more commonly known workout, works with a smaller number of repetitions and focuses on the quality of the reps, barre is the opposite, according to Berry.

For the Orioles, today marks the first of two straight days of intrasquad games in advance of the opening of the Grapefruit League season Saturday. For a manager like Orioles skipper Buck Showalter, the time here in camp has gone by too quickly. He's eager to see players actually play in games, but Showalter is a teacher, and he really relishes this time of spring, when he can instruct players on drills he believes will make them a better team throughout the season. I asked Showalter after Tuesday's workout if he believed he or the players were getting to the point where they had enough of the drills and wanted to start the games.

Maryland forward Jake Layman will miss four-to-six weeks of summer workouts after breaking a bone in his left (non-shooting) hand, an athletic department spokesman said Thursday. The injury occurred during a voluntary team pickup game this month.

After a week of workouts designed primarily for the pitchers and catchers, the Orioles will hold their first full-squad workout Monday at the Ed Smith Stadium spring training complex. Manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that the workouts probably won't be in full gear until Tuesday, however, since the medical staff will be completing physicals early Monday and the coaches will need some time to lay out the training routine for the position players. Showalter was scheduled to assemble the entire team Sunday night for an introductory get-together and team-building exercise.

When at least 20 Ravens players take the field at Towson University next week for informal workouts organized by wide receiver Derrick Mason, the Ravens will join the growing list of teams whose players decided to practice on their own during the NFL lockout. These workouts have become a hot topic. There is concern among some teams and some players about the injury risk involved when players are taking part in football drills away from team supervision . If a player suffers a serious injury now, it would be considered a “non-football injury,” which means it puts his contract in jeopardy after the lockout.

The thought of trying to sweat in the heat and humidity can keep some people on the couch. Here are ways to make hot-weather workouts more appealing: * Pick a good time. Exercise in the early morning or evening, when temperatures are cooler. A recent study by London researchers showed people do best in the morning in hot conditions, because their core body temperature starts out lower. * ... and place. Look for shaded, grassy areas rather than hot pavement, especially if you work out midday.

Anyone who has spent a few hours glued to the televised broadcast of the Westminster Dog Show, watching highly skilled dogs jump and hop their way to national recognition, can imagine just how much training and practice are required to get to the national stage. At 4 Paws Spa and Training Center in Forest Hill, local dogs can learn some of those impressive skills in agility training classes that are fun and great exercise - for both the pups and their owners. “Agility is like an obstacle course for dogs,” explains 4 Paws instructor Laura Winstead.

Maryland football began preseason practice Monday. Here are some notes and observations from the first day: Sophomore running back Wes Brown looks good Brown was suspended last season and put on 10-15 pounds while he was away, but the former four-star recruit trimmed up leading into spring practice and looked good Monday. He appears to be in good shape, was moving well and had a couple runs in particular that stuck out. On one, he found a hole, got about 15 yards downfield and then made an oncoming defender miss with a move in the open field that elicited a loud reaction from teammates.

It's a Wednesday evening at the Pop Physique studio in downtown Baltimore, and a dozen women -- most clad in leggings, T-shirts and socks -- are rotating their hips while trying to hold an exercise ball between their thighs.   "Great job, guys!" says instructor Smithy Onattu, directing her students via a headset as a playlist with songs such as Lana Del Rey's "Florida Kilos" and "Tumblr Girls" by rapper G-Eazy pumps through the art-filled space. Over the course of an hour, the group will tackle a series of exercises: planks and push-ups, plies and other ballet moves.

There was a time not so long ago when the opening of Ravens training camp was a good excuse for local fans to turn the page halfway through another disappointing baseball season, but times have changed. When the Ravens begin workouts this week, they will be the ones trying to turn the page on a disappointing 2013 season and an embarrassing offseason everyone around the Under Armour Performance Center would like to forget. Nobody wants to lead the league in tawdry off-the-field incidents - certainly not Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who has little patience for conduct that casts any shadow over the football operation.

I'm old enough to remember that it was a big deal when athletes were chosen to grace the front of a Wheaties box, yet I've never eaten a flake of it. General Mills would like to change that. The company has unveiled a promotion that, for the first time in the 90-year history of Wheaties, will allow the public to choose who's going on the iconic orange carton. The selection of athletes and the methodology show how General Mills is skewing younger with this promotion, the Wheaties Next Challenge . Lacrosse, the fastest-growing sport at the college and high school levels, gets a nod -- Rob Pannell, a former Cornell All-American and now a star with Major League Lacrosse's New York Lizards, is one of the five athletes up for the vote.

Ravens' offseason voluntary workouts got started this morning with quarterback Joe Flacco in the building but as expected, without Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice . Rice, who isn't expected to attend offseason activities as his agent negotiates a long-term deal with the Ravens, may not be participating in strength and conditioning workouts, but he didn't remain entirely silent today. In a message posted on his Twitter feed, Rice said: "To all college athletes getting ready to enter the NFL just remember the business side of the league is rough #fact.

Tips to care for your body while working out in the summer heat: Drink water before, during and after your game, practice or workout. In fact, 8 ounces of water every 15 minutes is recommended. Water or sports drinks? Water is cheaper and best for most people. Mineral-laced sports drinks are OK for adults into extreme exercise, but some contain more salt, sugar and calories than children need. Avoid germs. Use disposable cups or your own, personal water container. Insulated quart- and half-gallon containers that are durable are plentiful -- and cheap -- at most discount and sporting goods stores.

Those close to Roscoe Smith share a favorite phrase. When speaking of Smith, a Baltimore native and 6-foot-8 Nevada-Las Vegas forward entered in Thursday's NBA draft, they repeat a pair of words, over and over. It's not necessarily a nickname, but his trainer, high school and college coaches all refer to Smith in one way or another as the epitome of a "hard worker. " Those two words find their way into sentences after his name because those around him say Smith is always the first player in the gym and the last to leave.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake joined Ravens players Jacoby Jones and Justin Tucker and crowds of local children for a workout at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday - and it was broadcast on national television. The crowd was challenged to run up and down 10,000 of the stadium's steps, part of a yearlong campaign to promote health and fitness in Baltimore on NBC's "Today" show. The show's "Shine a Light" campaign, in which on-air personalities champion causes, chose Baltimore in part because of the city's high rates of diabetes, obesity and residents who smoke.
