I can't believe it's already the end of the week. It's scary how fast time passes... all the more reason to stop delaying your goals and begin taking steps to get there. It's hard to take a leap, but one step in the right direction is totally doable. So if you haven't yet tried one of my workouts, give today's full body workout a try.
It's a timed workout, meaning you have to complete the workout as fast as you can. There are 3 different bodyweight exercises that target the lower body, upper body, core, and cardio. The beauty of this workout is that if you don't have alot of time, just do as many sets as you can. You can always ...

Belly fat is a common concern for both men and women, and especially women who have had children. I must admit, it's very hard to lose that belly pooch, but it is possible with the help of CPR, which stands for Cardiovascular exercise, Proper nutrition, and Resistance training. You can do crunches and sit-ups until you're blue in the face, but without the right combination of exercise and supportive nutrition, you won't melt the belly fat. I wish I could give you a cool trick to lose belly fat, but it doesn't exist. And if anyone else claims to have the "secret", rest assured it's either a gimmick or lots of marketing hype. Stay&...

What better way to end the week then with a killer workout, right?! :) If you're a beginner, don't get scared off. Try the beginner variations and do your best. Even if you can only do 1 repetition, that's one more than you normally would do and so you'll be getting stronger. Take small steps and you'll achieve big goals!
Today's workout is a circuit-interval workout and the goal is to complete 4 sets. It will take you 12 minutes to complete unless you need more time to rest in between each exercise. Remember to always include a warm-up and stretches afterwards. A warm-up can be as simple as running on the spot for a few minutes or running...

Different pieces of equipment can add variety and fun to your workouts. Today, I'm using my stability ball to spice things up a bit. It's a very versatile and inexpensive piece of equipment that is a must for any home gym - regardless of your fitness level. It creates instability which allows for more core activation in any exercise that you do. So the goal today is to complete 4 sets of all 4 exercises, which will take you 16 minutes to complete. I mostly felt this workout in my shoulders, arms, and core, but it is a great full body routine. In addition to your ball, you'll also need your interval timer, a mat or ...

I can't believe it's already the end of the week. I'm feeling more and more pressured to get my goals accomplished because time is just flying! How about you? It's already mid-March. Are you any closer to reaching your goals? If not, stop making excuses and do at least one thing every day that will get you one step closer. Think small, progressive steps and by the end of the year you would have achieved alot!
So today's workout is a timed workout and the goal is to complete 6 sets of all of the exercises as fast as you can. The beauty of this workout is that if you don't have alot of time, just do as many rounds as you can.&...

I hope you all had a nice weekend with your families and friends. Last week, I decided to take the week off from shooting workouts because I was really running on low batteries and needed a break. I was afraid of doing so in fear of disappointing you all, but if I'm going to practice what I preach, then rest & recuperation are vital parts of living a healthy lifestyle as well. So when you need a break, take it. When you're stressed out, change the pace. Otherwise, your body will force you to take one and only then do we realize how fragile and mortal we really are. This week I'm refreshed and ready to give you great workouts once ...

Besides running after my daughter in the park this morning, today's workout really got my heart racing in 20 minutes! There are 4 different exercises and you will alternate between a cardio and core exercise. The goal is to complete 5 sets. All you're going to need is your interval timer, a step or a stack of books, a mat, and a bottle of water.
Remember to always include a warm-up and stretches afterwards. A warm-up can be as simple as running on the spot for a few minutes or running up and down the stairs if you have any. My favorite warm-up is to jump rope for about 3 minutes. The point of the warm-up is exactly ...
