What To Do When YOU’RE Fit But Your Clothes Aren’t

Favorite It may not appear this way to you, but I wear a large or an extra large in women’s tank’s & t-shirts. I haven’t worn a small since freshman year in high school. I also more-often-than-not fit more comfortably into a size 10 pants, & sometimes even a 12, depending on the cut. In […]

What Foam Roller To Buy & How To Make Your Foam Rolling Life Easier

Favorite I have a love/hate relationship with my foam roller. I love it because it is one of my go-to tools that releases pain, tightness & stiffness in my muscles, especially after a workout. (best time to roll because you’re all warmed up with proper blood flow & circulation) I hate it because I have […]

How To Get Motivated To Workout Again

Favorite I’m hearing this A LOT lately: “Ugh!

How My Inner Rebel Got Me Arrested

Favorite Haha. No. Not that kind of arrested. I’m talking about arrested in my mental, emotional & physical development. Let’s talk inner rebel, shall we? You have one. I have one. We all do.

The Power of Repetitious Movement

Favorite   A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in a 108 Sun Salutation class at my favorite yoga studio. Why 108?

How To Do a HIIT workout: The REAL Challenge Behind AMRAPs

Favorite Today I have a workout challenge for you. Be forewarned, it’s killer on the legs! No equipment. Just need a way to keep track of your reps (like a pencil & paper) & a timer you can set for 15 minutes. Sometimes I like to break from the typical interval training style I do […]

22 Different Push Up Variations

Favorite Last month I was nominated to do 22 push ups a day for 22 days as part of #22Kill. It’s a movement to spread awareness of the fact that 22 American Veterans commit suicide on a daily basis. I’ll be honest, until this challenge, I had no idea. PTSD is serious stuff. And so […]
