I'm tight/stiff in my Achilles, no pain yet. Will a week off running be enough to stop it from becoming an injury? Is the stairmaster Ok instead?

A stair master would actually likely be harder on your Achilles that running, so I would avoid that. A bicycle would probably be a good alternative to give your Achilles some rest while you maintain your fitness. ...Read more

What is the best solution to reduce cellulite?

See below: Other than staying in the same weight and leading a healthy life style, there is nothing available today to cause permanent improvement in cellulite. Endermalogy helps as long as you keep on repeating the treatments. Otherwise you back to the same condition. Lasers and rf don't help long term, in fact may cause more damage in my opinion.
