3 Ways to Simplify Everyday Life

3 Ways to Simply Everyday Family Life | Fit with Flash

Everybody’s stressed all the time. I get stressed too, but I’m ruthlessly efficient with what I take on (and what I don’t) in order to keep life as simple as possible.

I don’t have all the answers & I also don’t have small babies/toddlers around, so that makes my situation easier than others, but I refuse to let societal pressures drive my decision-making. The following are things that work for me individually & for me with my family.

Here are 3 ways to simplify everyday life: [Read more…]

Workout Playlist: Spring Break 2000

Spring Break Workout Playlist by Ami McMullen | Fit with Flash

My latest workout playlist is from one of my favorite music years: 2000. It was hard to narrow it down to just these 15 songs. It’s also hard to believe that these came out nearly 20 years ago. WHAT? I’d forgotten how explicit some of these songs were, so I’m sharing the clean versions of all them here, just in case there are sensitive ears around…

Anyway. Here’s the link if you can’t see the widget below.

 

As always, playlists are an hour long, with cool-down music at the end so you don’t forget to stretch. Be careful though… this last song might set the mood for something other than a cool-down. ; )

Book Buzz: The Romance Series That’s WAY Better (& Hotter) Than 50 Shades

I don’t know about you guys, but I loved romance novels for a while, but eventually they all kinda felt the same: a demure damsel, a hunky stable boy, badda bing badda boom, steamy scenes, happily ever after, the end. They were fine, then I got over it and stopped reading them.

My BFF – who was also into romance novels and felt the same way I did about the Shades series – not our fave – told me she’d recently been so overwhelmed by the state of the world that she just wanted something FUN to read to relax. She’d gotten back into romances and found the BEST series. She told me I had to at least read the first book. [Read more…]

The Fit Getaway Retreat: February 7 – 11, 2019

Fit Getaway Fitness Retreat | Tulum, Mexico 2019

February 7th is fast approaching & I’m READY for it…

Seven weeks from today we’ll be on our way to Mexico to post up at the beautiful Amansala Eco Resort and Spa for 5 days and 4 nights of sleeping next to the sea, eating super healthy meals that we didn’t have to cook ourselves, and doing some late morning TRX’ing (the chill strength and mobility kind, not the high intensity kind – nobody wants to do burpees on vacay).

I fully intend to look like this chick up here about 60% of the time. I’ve already bought a similar outfit and am bringing my straw hat (mostly because I’ve had no place to strut either one of them), damn it.

For those of you that read this blog, I’m offering a special coupon code that will drop the registration price to $1695. (Keep scrolling… for dramatic effect)

Enter code: FLASHVIP at checkout to get the entire retreat for $1695.
But the deadline to register & pick your room is approaching fast! (Like, in 2 weeks!)

Bring your bestie or your partner.
Hell, forget everybody & come by yourself
(you get to hang with me all weekend & I’m awesome).

This is going to be an unforgettable trip and the shuttle will be ready to bring you to the resort when you get off the plane in Cancún. If you tell me your drink order, I’ll have that ready when you arrive. ; )

In order to strengthen the muscles all around your foot and ankle joint, you’ve got to do a variety of different types of movements in a variety of directions. There are slow strength exercises like calf raises, and ballistic ones like unilateral and bilateral hops, as well as isometric ones to help control your strength at different end ranges of motion. There’s no ONE right way to train below the knee, rather a myriad of tools to help you build a solid, durable joint. Here’s another combo to add to your toolbox that you can do anywhere: [Read more…]

Louisville in November: TRX Bootcamp & TRX Lite!

I’ll be coming to Louisville for Thanksgiving in November and am excited to be staying for an extended visit! I’m running two 4 week TRX fitness programs at my old stomping grounds while I’m home. Both sessions will start the week of November 26th and end December 20th… perfect for between the holidays.

TRX Lite:

TRX Lite: A 4 week TRX program with a little less intensity than bootcamp.
A 4 week TRX class that runs a little later in the morning and is a little less intense. This class will be perfect for those easing back into fitness after a long break, pre/post natal moms, or anybody that hates early workouts and burpees. Childcare will also be provided for an extra fee!

TRX Bootcamp:

TRX Bootcamp: A 4 week TRX fitness program with TRX Master Instructor Ami McMullen

A 4 week early morning class that will build strength & endurance, burn some serious calories, and will set you up for hours of EPOC (google it). This session is for those who need to work out early and want the most bang for their buck. We’ll work hard, but it won’t be miserable. Promise.

Full, half pack, & drop-in packages available.
