Workout of the Week: Treadmill + Upper Body

Have you ever been in a group fitness class (or maybe even in a personal training session) and your trainer has told you to 'just do one more!,' or 'rest is for the weak - don't stop now!' I might be guilty, whether it be in group fitness, personal training or in my online workouts. The reason I bring it up is because of one important thing I want to make sure you REALIZE... *You are in charge of YOU. You know YOUR limits. You are the only one who gets how YOU feel. And you are the only one who can TRULY push yourself.* A motivating instructor / trainer is a FABULOUS thing! I try my darnedest to be one each & every day. But the truth is, unless I have been working with you one-on-one for a d

Workout of the Week + Benefits of Cardio ❤️

As your football Sunday 🏈 comes to a close, I wanted to share your #workoutoftheweek for this week. And it's a good one (let's be honest.... they all are🙌🏻).

I crave the challenge - mentally & physically. I crave the scenery, the time spent focusing on your steps and surroundings and trying to determine the 'whys & hows' in the variability of each run. I mentioned last week that I visited a foot & ankle doctor a couple weeks ago, hoping for a diagnosis that would motivate me to nurse my foot back to health. I was pretty much convinced I had a stress fracture (I've had one before) and that I'd probably

Workout of the Week: Stairs + Full Body

I hope you had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend! I certainly did- I spent it up in Connecticut celebrating a dear friend's wedding! From spending time with family and friends to the festivities to the food & drinks... it was a great weekend. And because I got goals... I didn't let my time in sweat mode slack. #lifestyle The morning of the wedding, I did the following workout which is the one I thought I'd share with you this week. I had 3 cardio machine options & some weights to play with.😜 I chose the stair stepper for a few reasons, one of which was a diagnosis I received this week. More on that later... So here it is! Get ready to sweat. It's a good one. (And as always... if you have
