  • The Benefits of AMRAP Workouts + This Week’s Workouts


    Hi and welcome to the weekly workout recap! I regularly consider whether or not to keep writing this post every week because sometimes it feels a little "all about me" and redundant but then I receive feedback that it's really helpful for some of you and gives you ideas and inspiration. As a compromise, I've [...]

  • Summer of Stairs…And Weekly Workouts


    I make my clients run stairs on the regular because it's really great cardio. It's quick and efficient for getting the heart rate up and a nice change from running and rowing. And I think it's safe to say that most of my clients would pick stairs over burpees. ;) Recently, I've been including more [...]

  • Best Workout Week: Boot Camp, Circuit Classes, Yoga and a 5K!


    I'm super pumped to share this week's workout recap with you because for the entire week I felt motivated and challenged. I got out of my rut this week and actually attended a boot camp, participated in some circuit training classes at the gym and ran a 5K race. I've said this so many times [...]

  • An Outdoor Park Workout + Weekly Workouts


    Oh my gosh...today has been perfection. First, I slept until 9:30 a.m. for a whopping total of 10 hours of sleep last night. Life changed. Second, I had an entire day with nowhere I had to be and nothing I had to do and it felt awesome. I didn't put on makeup and stayed in [...]

  • 5 Minute Stability Ball Ab Workout + This Week’s Workouts


    I have a quick but effective ab workout to share with you today. I've been using it with some of my clients for the last couple of weeks as a warm up/core circuit and I've done it myself a few times too. I did it to finish up my workout yesterday and my abs were a little [...]

  • 45/15 Circuit Training Workout {Video + Workout Post}


    It's been forever since I've shared a workout with you guys. It's not that I haven't been programming them nonstop for my clients but it's been difficult to carve out the time to get them ready for you in the way that I like to. But today is your lucky day! I have a new [...]

  • 4-3-2-1 Workout


    I want to share a workout format with you today that I sometimes use when training clients or programming circuit classes. It's called "4-3-2-1" and provides a good cardio strength workout that keeps you moving and sweating. Here's the basic breakdown of how it works. 4 minutes of cardio - Usually do some sort of [...]

  • Lunge, Shuffle, Run & Jump Workout


    OMG. I am so oversharing right now but my butt hasn't been this sore from a workout since I did my first RX pistol (one leg squat) WOD earlier this year. I knew as soon as I finished this really unique and sneaky challenging workout yesterday that I had to share it with you. It's [...]

  • 20 Minutes of 5 Minute AMRAPs {Workout Post}


    Hey there. I don't have much to report from today other than... 1) My AC unit is on it's way out but all hope is not yet lost so for now we wait. Best case scenario I pay $400 for a motor in several months...worst case scenario I replace the whole thing but we're not [...]

  • Monday + 20-15-10 Workout


    Hello and happy end to Monday. I had a great day but I am so happy to be home and cooking dinner. I'm about to watch last night's Game of Thrones and from what I've seen on Facebook and heard around the gym today...I'm in for a shocker! Can't wait!!! Just a few things to [...]

  • Bosu Ball Circuit Workout {With Video Demonstration}


    One of my favorite pieces of equipment to use in the gym in regards to versatility is the Bosu Trainer. It's likely you have seen this big half-circle blue ball around your gym and you may have wondered what to do with it. I'm going to take you through a workout that utilizes the Bosu [...]

  • Cinco de Cardio Circuit Workout


    Hola and happy Friday! I know that many of you are gearing up to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this weekend. I'm pretty pumped for a Mexican feast of my own in Chicago tonight. I promised you a weekend workout and this one is all about the high intensity cardio to help you balance out all [...]

  • 7 Minute AMRAPs Workout


    Happy weekend! I wanted to share a workout format that I've been doing with some of my clients this week. It consists of three seven-minute AMRAPs with two minutes of recovery between each. So you would do the first 7-minute AMRAP, take a 2 minute break and then move on to the second. The workout [...]

  • A Workout To Warm You Up


    Watch out. Apparently, snow is imminent. What our local weather celeb says is pretty much considered word of god around here and he's on board with the snow forecast. I believe this because all of my friends in Alabama are posting snow pictures on Facebook. When it actually snow in Birmingham, there's a good chance that [...]

  • Stability Ball Workout


    I decided that it had been way too long since I shared a workout with you. I love this stability ball circuit I have been doing with my personal training clients so it seemed like the perfect thing to post. When I train I usually start my clients out with a little bit of cardio like [...]

  • Fall Cardio Strength Circuit Workout


    Fall is my favorite season for outdoor workouts. I find crisp days with low humidity to be energizing and love the beautiful scenery created by the changing colors of the leaves. Last Thursday I wanted to get a cardio and weights workout in but had no desire to be in the gym on a gorgeous [...]
