No Equipment, No Problem! Perform these exercises anywhere!

Do you ever get the urge to workout but stop yourself because you don’t have any equipment?!  No equipment, no problem!

Perform 10-15 repetitions of each exercise, 3x through.  Please note that with exercise #2, you will need to perform the exercise on each side.

Arms and Abs Workout for Fitness Friday

Hello all,

It’s that time of the week again:  Fitness Friday!!!

Lately, I have been completely obsessed with the Tabata format for my workouts.  They are so efficient and I love knowing how much more time I have left in a workout.

Today I have an Arms and Abs Workout for you that follows this same format: 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off, 8x through for each move.  You will need a set of dumbbells, a soft surface and plenty of water for this workout.  And there may be a surprise at the end….. 🙂

I really hope that you enjoy it!

***Please make sure to like, comment, share and subscribe while you are there.  Thank you. And have a great weekend!!

Proper Breathing Technique for Ab Exercises

One of the questions that my clients frequently ask is “When do I breathe?”  Breathing is incredibly important while working out (and in daily life 🙂 ) but proper breathing is extremely crucial when working your abdominals.  It can make a huge difference in how your abs look, as well as how strong they become.

Here is a quick video to teach you the proper breathing technique for ab exercises.  I hope that you enjoy it.

*Don’t forget to Get Movin’ Monday.  It doesn’t matter how long you move for but let’s start the week off right!

My Struggle with Body Image

Hello friends,

Gabby Bernstein says that “Your wounds are your wisdom” and this is something that really resonates with me.  Over the last few weeks, well even years, I have had a major wake up call when it comes to my struggle with body image (body shaming, body hating).  In this very, vulnerable VLOG I share my story with you.

Please take a few moments to watch the video.  I never share my story with you to make you feel sorry for me.  My true purpose is to make an impact and to possibly change the way that we feel about our bodies.

Also, please share with anyone who you think could use it.  Thank you 🙂

Quick Outdoor Workout (Full Body)

Hello y’all, happy Fitness Friday!  If you are planning on spending some time outdoors this weekend, I have the perfect workout for you.  I hope that you enjoy it and that you have an amazing weekend!

*Okay, this workout can also be done inside but why would you want to miss out on some extra Vitamin D? 🙂

Quick Exercise for Workout Wednesday

Hello everyone, happy Workout Wednesday!!!

When I became a trainer, this was one of the first BOSU exercises that I learned and it is still one of my favorites!  It works your entire body, burns calories and gives you a cardio burst.

This is a BOSU Burpee (well, kinda 🙂 )!   To modify this exercise, you can step back instead of jumping.  To progress it, you can add a push up and a jump at the end.  This can also be done without the BOSU as a simple Burpee.

Enjoy!
