I've found that I just never fit in your "typical" trainer mold. I was never the skinniest, most toned with a six pack or most stylish. When I started working as a trainer and instructor at a cooperate company, I finally found the right space for me. Everyone there was in the gym before or … Continue reading Not Fitting The “Mold.”
This is my current favorite upper body set. Tank top season is upon us, but to be honest that means nothing to me. I like to work towards building strength and lean muscle year round. I love working out my shoulders, since it's one of my favorite features (aside from my quads). This upper body … Continue reading Upper Body Strength [Shoulders + Triceps]
I've been trying to get more consistent with workouts yet again. As you may be able to tell, I redid my workout space for a fresh feel. I fell off waking up before the kiddos. I can be really good on workouts for a week or two at a consistent time, but others I find myself … Continue reading 10 Minute Bodyweight HIIT

I meant to post this workout a few weeks ago... I kept redoing it and switching things up. After tweaking it numerous times, I am finally satisfied with the results!This workout is self explanatory: it's a lower body lunge burn, "HIIT" style. A ton of lunge variations and a bit of cardio moves to get … Continue reading Lower Body Lunge Burn.
I got this workout idea from Heather Robertson. She posts amazing YouTube videos. I loved her first "No Repeat" thirty move workout and was super excited when she posted a second one. I loved the second one so much that I made my own "variation" to include some of my favorite moves. You only have … Continue reading October Sweat Fest HIIT.
This month for my HIIT classes, I've been using a timer of 45 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. I've been focusing on primarily body weight exercises, with the option to add weight in.
