As travel, whether for work or pleasure, continues to be apart of many people's lives it is important to assess whether or not training on that five-day vacation is truly worth it.

I have spent far too many trips engulfed in the fear that if I don't train, I will either lose muscle mass or gain so much weight that I will never recover once I return home. It's so silly because I was wasting so much of my life fretting over somet...

I feel you, girl! You work full time. You have kids. You travel for work. You have kids AND a job. You're flat out busy and there is no time to get a workout in... And even if there was, you'd much rather Netflix into a nap. I understand the feeling because it happens to me weekly and sometimes even daily. No one is ever fully motivated 24/7. It takes practice, grit, and some serious will-power to stay in the game. (T...

Anyone who knows me knows that I love my sleep and that mornings can be a challenge if I go to bed late.  So, then, how do I train early in the morning?  Here are a few tips that might come in handy next time you’re tempted to hit the snooze button.

Being in the midwest, this girl has SPRING on her mind. I cannot wait for the snow to melt and the green grass to grow! I am looking forward to sunshine, longer days and birds chirping! During the nicer months of the year, I like to take my workout classes outside.

Warm Up:

Ah… it’s the last day of January and around the time that many of the well-intended 2017 resolutions are fading fast.  Life got busy and your calendar filled up.  Your 2016 inner voice is coming back stronger than ever telling you: “one little cookie won’t hurt”, “it’s the weekend”, “you can work out harder tomorrow”…  And thus is the human conundrum.

I was doing SO good.
