  • 2014 Christmas Cookie Crusher Workout {Gym + Home Versions}

    { 19 comments }

    I don't know about you but the Christmas cookies are ABUNDANT over here. I think I've averaged somewhere between 2-5 cookies every day for the last week! I mean, seriously...between what I've been baking for gifts and get togethers and what I've been gifted by friends and clients, it's been a sugar extravaganza. I'm probably going [...]

    I have a great workout to share with you today that I did a couple of weeks ago for my own workout and have since put several clients through. It's a killer combo of legs and cardio. But first... Some puppy cuteness for you. Zoey goes from 90 mph to crash in about two seconds. She is all [...]

  • Weekly Workouts: Squat Burpee Ladder Workout

    { 18 comments }

    Welcome to the weekly workout recap. This is the week that squats nearly did me in and running took a back seat to life. First, the squats...I LOVE to squat. It's my #1 favorite exercise of all time and I do them all the time. Last week I took my weekly barbell squat workout to [...]

  • “Legs On Fire” Cardio Strength Workout

    I promise that I didn't plan to follow the salted fudge brownie recipe with a workout but I think it works nicely with the whole theme of my blog...workout hard, eat well! :) I have a workout to share with you today that I did myself on Tuesday. I only had a 30 minute window [...]

  • 1,000 Rep Home Workout

    { 66 comments }

    When I opened the front door this morning to find this... I promptly closed the door and retreated back into the warmth of my house. The snow continued yesterday and we probably ended up with six inches. Overnight we received a fine layer of ice over everything and then this morning two more inches of [...]

    Well, I don't have much to share with you from my Saturday. It's cold and has been raining all day here in Charlotte. I slept until 8 and then headed to Om Yoga to teach a hot vinyasa class at 9:30. It's my second week teaching there and I am loving it so much. I [...]

    I had the most wonderful Thursday. I feel so grateful for so many things...my job working at Metro not only doing something I love but doing it with amazing people, the friendships I have made here in Charlotte, the opportunity to teach yoga and being a part of the yoga community as a whole and [...]

  • CrossFit Open Workout 13.1

    Last Friday I did two things that pushed me WAY outside of my comfort zone.. 1) Registered for the CrossFit Games Open. 2) Completed the first Open workout and achieved a new snatch PR...13 times in a row. Let me back up. Many of you have probably seen the CrossFit Games on ESPN. There is [...]

    My Saturday was packed with excitement. A group of CrossFitters in Charlotte have started a Throwdown series where different CrossFit boxes take turns hosting a free friendly Saturday afternoon competition. Yesterday was our turn to host the Throwdown and it was so amazing! We had a huge turnout - over 150 people - and Sean, [...]

  • A Loss Of Enthusiasm

    Happy, happy Friday! I hope it's been a great week. Remember how I was all excited about my kipping pullups yesterday? I felt all on top of the CrossFit world that I'd finally figured them out. Well, my enthusiasm for CrossFit waned a bit after last night's workout. This WOD killed me for some reason. [...]

    Remember how I ended my last post saying that I was a rainy morning so I was going to visit CrossFit Fort Walton? Well, I drove over there for the 9:30 class and no one showed to teach it! There were like four of us waiting in the rain in the parking lot. Boo. There [...]
