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…

Identify Your Barriers: Consistent Workouts

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…]

Why Your Fitness Instructor Isn’t Doing The Workout…

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…]

Winter Running: What I Do On the Treadmill

I think a lot people assume that fitness people like all kinds of workouts, but running is not always my jam. I don’t like to run for more than a few miles anyway, (I’d rather be doing a million other types of workouts… or errands) but I know my body benefits from it, so I do it a couple times per week.

Running during the winter months is challenging for me though because I strongly dislike running outside when it’s cold. I’ve tried to like it. I’ve done it a few times. I just don’t enjoy it. All I’m thinking about is getting it over with and I usually stop well before I need to… [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!
