Identify Your Barriers: Consistent Workouts

img_8686

 

Even though I’m a fitness professional, I sometimes have a hard time getting motivated to do my own workouts regularly. The older I get though, the more I realize how important it is that I stay on it… Because if I could keep my 25 year old body without much work, I wouldn’t be worried at all. ; ) [Read more…]

Thailand, Part 2: Asia Fitness Conference… In Letters

I’ve always heard great things about the Asia Fitness Conference and getting to attend and speak at this year’s conference in Bangkok was amazing! I decided to write this post in letters to those who helped make this event as great as it was!

Dear Suzanne Hosley – You put on a wicked conference! Thank you so much for inviting me to teach TRX Dance Body and for asking for lots of dance sessions. It was so incredibly fun to rock it out with the attendees and getting to mix my dance world with my fitness world. Had the time of my life and it started with you!

What’s in my bag?

There are no beauty products in my purse, other than Chapstick, so this is a different kind of “Bag” post. I’m asked frequently what I do in my own workouts and I tell people I mainly use each of the products shown here. It was imperative to make room for this bag in my car when I was packing up for my road trip!

It’s a duffle bag…

that doubles as a backpack! Wa-pow!

My Favorite Fitness Apps

largevia

There are a million apps out there… and tons of fitness-related ones. Some are more aimed at fitness consumers and general population, some more towards fitness professionals. I’ve downloaded a bunch over the years, but have found that I only really use a selected few. These are those: [Read more…]

Feelin’ Good This Friday

photo 3

I think we’re all feeling a little bit better this week. The weather finally seems to be warming up and staying a little more consistent. I won’t put away my down jacket just yet though… I feel like that’s completely jinxing everything – just begging for another snow storm to swoop through. So I’ll leave it in my closet and hope to hell that I don’t need it until the winter… or until I go to Canada next (spring is coming there too, but it’s a little later than here). With everybody thawing out and arising from hibernation, I think we’re all a little happier. Here’s why I’m feelin’ so good this Friday:

>It’s been a really great week. I was able to launch my new TRX Barre class, which sold out. I’m proud of the format I created, I get to see ladies I love, and it’s a way different vibe than my 6m TRX Bootcamps. I haven’t taught mid-morning classes since I lived in San Diego (where I taught 6 classes per day all over the city) and I seriously miss that time slot (and those classes/gyms/participants). My body is actually awake at that time, I have time to run a comb through my hair and drink some tea, and I’m just an all-around better person by that point in the day. I’m looking forward to doing more around that time.

>With the warmer weather I’m a way better dog mother. Tango and I are able to stay outside way longer and I’m soaking up all the sun and pretty, blooming flowers. I have a billion photos in my phone of flower buds these days. It’s like they might be stolen from us at any moment and I want to document each one to remember their beauty. I realize that’s a bit dramatic, but I feel like this winter has just messed with my soul. They’re so pretty though.

>I do most of my traveling for TRX during the later part of the week and the weekends. Sometimes, when I’ve got a heavy schedule, I can end up dreading it. This weekend however, I’ll be traveling only an hour and half east to Lexington to teach. NBD. Aaaaand I get to meet up with one of my favorite people in the world, Julie! We went to college together and haven’t gotten to hang in at least a year. Work trips that turn into personal trips are the best kind. And I’ll be back home at decent time too. #triplewhammy

>Here’s a random, but fabulous photo of my family, from when I was 3 years old. Yesterday on social media everybody was all “Happy Siblings Day!” I’ve never heard of this holiday, but it seemed like a good idea to post old photos of me and my bro so I participated. This photo I keep in my wallet and is my absolute favorite. I look a little bit like my mother. ; )

This weekend is Thunder Over Louisville – an all-day gigantic airshow over the entire city with the Blue Angles and tons of other planes. It’s so exciting. Almost like a big “Welcome Spring!” for the city. This air show leads to an even bigger fireworks display, choreographed to music. It’s a 30 minute long show that gets bigger and better every year. Thunder is the official kickoff to the Kentucky Derby Festival – the 3 weeks that lead to the Derby Races, and the MOST EXCITING time ever to be in Louisville. Derby is like our Mardi Gras and the entire city comes to life. I highly recommend that if you ever decide to visit Kentucky, you do it during the last week of April that leads into the first Saturday in May. You won’t be disappointed.

Hope you’ve had an excellent week as well. Happy Friday!

TRX Barre!

Ami (1 of 1)-4

I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be launching a new class on my schedule: TRX Barre. It’s a great combination of my two favorite ways to move. As a classically trained ballet dancer and Master Instructor for TRX, I developed content for this years ago, but just never got it rolling… until now. Using the TRX Suspension Trainer as an adjustable barre, we’ll use it for assistance and resistance through a wide variety of ballet-based strength exercises. If you’re in the Louisville area, visit my fitness website for all the details! If you’re nowhere near Louisville, come visit! ; )

Why Your Fitness Instructor Isn’t Doing The Workout…

PT2Main

If you’re taking a pre-choreographed class or some sort of all cardio-based class, like cycling, step, Zumba, Turbokick, cardio dance, etc. your fitness instructor is most likely right there, doing the whole workout with you. But have you ever taken a fitness class where the instructor wasn’t doing the workout with you? Ever wondered why? It’s not because they’re lazy. It’s not because they don’t want to sweat… wait for it…  [Read more…]

Video: TRX 30 Minute Circuit

IMG_5161
Need a quickie? A quickie workout, I mean… I get asked for fast workouts quite often. This workout can be done in 30 minutes! It’s perfect for before/after work or on your lunch break.
First: Determine your level. 
  • Level 1 peeps are going to do 10 reps of each exercise
  • Level 2 peeps are gonna do 15 reps of each.
  • Level 3 (badass) peeps are going to rock 20 reps of each.
Second: Start the clock. 
I like to set the timer on my phone to go off at the 30 min mark. Change it up if you have more/less time to work with.
Third: Wash, Rinse, Repeat.
 Go through your # of reps of all 5 exercises, then repeat as many times as you can, with control, within your time frame. How many rounds can you complete?
Pro Tip: Don’t sacrifice good control for speed!
I did 3 rounds (plus a few lunges) of Level 3 in 30 minutes.
And was breathing hard
Try it out and let me know what you think!
