Workouts Begin Monday! Reserve Your Spot

If you haven’t been getting your workouts in for lack of time, motivation, or a gym membership, I hear you. It’s rough. But if you’ve got access to a TRX Suspension Trainer (or want to buy your own) you can join me and a small, exclusive group in an online 8 week program meant to get you in the habit of doing workouts consistently and finding space to fit them in your routine. Shorter, less miserable workouts mean you’ll do them more often. A private Facebook for weekly videos, recipes, nutrition tips, and Q&A sessions will support you in your mission to get the leaner, stronger body you’ve been wanting.

Social Support: An Often Missing Component in Weight Loss

image via

It’s amazing how big of a component social support is in our lives, especially when we’re trying to reach a goal. We don’t realize how much of an influence our closest friends and family have on how successful (or unsuccessful) we are in certain endeavors.

When it comes to lifestyle changes for weight loss, social support is often the missing link in someone’s journey. The lack of support is something I’ve seen time and time again over the years with my clients and class participants. It’s astonishing how many people are sabotaged by the people closest to them, who should be their biggest cheerleaders.  [Read more…]

Movement Tips for the BEGINNER Beginner.

image via

There are enough posts out there to recommend really hard/advanced exercises, but this post is aimed at those in the very beginner category: those that have been sick or injured for a while, those who are extremely overweight, or those that experience difficulty with most physical activity.

Maybe you’ve made the decision to “get in shape,” but you’re not totally sure where to start. Or, you’re not physically, financially, or emotionally ready to join a gym just yet. Whatever your motivation is, it’s awesome that you’re ready to roll in some fashion. Here are a few beginner movement tips that may help you out: [Read more…]

Is Your Workout Helping or Hurting You?

image via

Between the number of gyms and studios and the number of free online workouts out there, there’s no shortage of places to obtain a workout or full exercise program.  People choose what type of workouts they do based on many factors: from what they think sounds fun, to what they’ve heard “really works.” Everybody is different in what works for them, what they like to do, and what their goals are. I won’t give you one type of workout that will be great for you, but what I will do is help you figure out if what you’re currently doing is helping you, hurting you, or just plain wasting your time…

How I Quit My Soda Habit

image via

 

As a child of the 80s and 90s, I grew up drinking sodas. We got Happy Meals at McDonald’s as special treats and I would slurp down a Coke in seconds flat. My dad loved Pepsi, so those were always in the fridge and we could have one at dinner every now and then. Although I drank plenty of water too (I was a dancer so was constantly in class or rehearsal) I would often stop and get a soda at a drive-thru once I got my license. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I had to stop… [Read more…]

Want a stronger core? Got 15 minutes?

Introducing the new Fit Body Series from Flash Fit Clubs. These workouts are stand-alone workouts focusing on one area of the body and can be done on their own, or in addition to the other Flash Fit Clubs programming. The first one released in this series is the Core workout. It’s a quick and effective workout that will target your abs, obliques, low back, and hips.  There are 3 rounds that take exactly 15 minutes to complete, and can be repeated if you have time. And it’s just $9.99.

Includes:

  • Real Time Instructional Workout Video
  • Printable PDF
  • Workout Timer

GET IT HERE 

Most gyms are equipped with a TRX Suspension Trainer (you can ask the front desk if you’re not sure) so you can rock out your workout as a warm up or at the end of your usual session. If you’d like you’re own set of straps, you can get any model for 15% off on the TRX website.

Video Extras: See if you can name the theme song at the beginning (since I don’t have one my own yet), and stick around for the blooper reel at the end. You’d think filming a 20 second intro wouldn’t be that hard…

Recipe: Sweet Potato Fries. And a meal for your week!

Photo & Recipe from JamieOliver.com

Any time I cook, I try to be efficient AF. If we’re baking something in the oven, we’re also going to bake a side dish… because that’s less work. Since sweet potatoes were on sale for $.79 (holla!) at the grocery this week, I decided to try Jamie Oliver’s recipe for Sweet Potato Fries.

Want to Feel/Look Better? Eat Like A Grown Up.

large

My past nutrition advice: Eat real food. Drink water more than you drink other things.

My new advice: Eat like a fucking grown up.

I’m tired of getting asked nutrition questions that are really just people wishing I would tell them it’s ok to eat crap. Stop. That’s like asking a rich person for financial advice and hoping they tell you buy shit all the time and don’t save or invest in anything. We all know better. We know deep down that at some point… we need to get our shit together. I also know that once we get into certain habits, we don’t always remember some of the basics. So, unless you’re really broke, are in college, or are 12 yeras old and in charge of buying your meals, here’s a quick reminder of how to eat like an adult: [Read more…]
