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. ; )

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.

Dancer Pose Challenge

Dancer Pose Challenge

My month-long quest to achieve the Dancer Pose:

Day 1: Baseline Photo – where you’re at right now. Do both legs!

Anybody else see exercises or poses online that they wish they could do but can’t? I have probably 10 or so that I try sporadically – handstands, crazy pull-up variations, mobility drills, etc – but I know I’ll only achieve them if I focus on ONE at a time, instead of 10… So for the month of August (and a little into September) I’m planning on nailing the Dancer Pose variation with both arms.

In the dance world, we call this a Scorpion, but in yoga it’s called King Dancer or Natarajasana (yogis, please tell me if this is incorrect). Whatever it’s called, I can’t do it and have never been able to grab my foot behind my head… but now I’m determined.

Each week I’ll be posting what I’m doing to achieve this. It’s going to take a mixture of back strengthening, front side stretching – especially in the quads and hip flexors – and thoracic spine/overhead shoulder mobility for me to get this, so the videos will vary.

I’ll be posting the exercises and my progress on my Instagram and Facebook pages. Follow along with the hashtag #flashdancerchallenge and DM me your photos if you want to join in!

Fit Getaway Recap (& Info for Next Year!)

We had the best weekend in Santa Barbara! We went through quite a few bottles of Prosecco, danced our asses off to Beyoncé, got several TRX workouts in, had lots of good, deep conversation, and enjoyed as much sunshine as we could. At the end of the weekend, I wrote a check to the Santa Barbara Support Network to donate some our proceeds to help after the wildfires and mudslides.

Here are some photos from the weekend and at the bottom of the page, you can sign up to be notified on the next event’s details!  [Read more…]

Fitness & Finances: Part 2

Fitness & finances are a lot alike. You have to pay attention to both. You have to work at both. And while you may have inherited great wealth or health from your parents, you still have to put effort in each to maintain good standing. Here’s part 2 of my Fitness & Finances post:  [Read more…]

Fitness & Nutrition Tracking: What (& What Not) to Track

Fitness Tracking: What (and What Not) to Track

There’s never been a better time to track your health and fitness statistics than right now. From calories to steps, to sleep, to even tracking your poo, there’s a way to watch your every move and gauge your progress. While I agree that there are great advantages to having lots of information at your disposal, it’s easy to go overboard and waste your time and energy on useless stats. And it’s even easier to get overwhelmed by all the info and, as a result, do nothing with it. Here’s when to track your health and fitness, and what you don’t need to worry about:
