Is THIS View of Fitness Making You Miss Out On Life?

0

I just got back from an incredible 10 day road trip with my boyfriend, his best friend and his best friend’s girlfriend through part of the Southwest.  We (Scott and I) ended up covering 40 miles of hiking and biking in 8 days, including hiking as far as we could down into the Grand Canyon (and back up) and an […]

0

Squats are one the most fundamental and effective movements we can perform in the gym.  However, they are so often performed improperly or are wrongly blamed for causing knee pain. More often than not, it’s not squats that are causing knee pain, but the way the squat is being performed that is causing pain. So let’s break these suckers down […]

FREE WORKOUT FRIDAY: Simple Strength Circuit!

0

One of the major tenets of my fitness philosophy revolves around the idea that more isn’t better – BETTER is better.  So spending more time working out isn’t necessarily more advantageous, especially if what you’re doing isn’t the most effective and efficient use of your time and resources. Plus, seriously, no one wants to live in the gym.  Not even […]

FREE WORKOUT FRIDAY: Lower body injury? No prob!

0

Injuries suck. I know this because I’ve had my fair share of ‘em, of all varieties.  Mostly outside of the gym. I go hard in the gym so that I can go hard in life outside of the gym. For me, doing this usually comes with occasionally belly flopping over handle bars, or taking them to the face, and accumulating […]

The Best Core Exercise Ever.

1

I wish I had a dollar for every time someone told me they have tight hamstrings. …And I showed them that they don’t actually have truly tight hamstrings. Because I’d have a whole lot of dollars…that I would probably spend on food. If you’re wondering why I’m talking about hamstrings when I promised you the world’s best core exercise, it’s […]

Two Things I Learned on the Diet Rollercoaster.

1

Diets have a 95% failure rate. NINETY-FIVE percent. Would you trust any other “product” that would only work 5% of the time? No, that would be crazy, right? But I get it.. I rode the ups and downs of the diet roller coaster for YEARS. I know exactly what it’s like to wake up feeling like I need to “start […]

How To THRIVE Through The Holidays.

1

How many burpees do you have to do to burn off the piece of pie you’re going to eat tomorrow? Zero. Unless you feel like doing burpees because you’re just sick like that.  But you do not have to earn your right to eat or punish yourself for doing so. Anyone who prescribes random exercises in attempt to negate calorie […]

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

1

I’m pumped to share my favorite pumpkin pie inspired protein shake recipe today, because well-made protein shakes are a fab way to add nutrients, variety and convenience to your nutrition regimen. ..And life’s too short for crappy shakes and eating anything that doesn’t make your taste buds jump for joy. Whether you drink shakes for their accessibility in the midst […]
