  • The Couple that Burpees Together…Burpee Couples Workout + HYLETE Review


    This post is sponsored by HYLETE.  Today's post combines three of my favorite things. 1) New workout gear. 2) Working out with Tanner. 3) BURPEES! HYLETE recently offered to send a sampling of their workout apparel for both Tanner and I try out and we decided to give it the ultimate test with a sweaty [...]

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


    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 [...]

  • Butt Burner Cardio Blast Workout + Weekly Workouts


    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


    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


    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 [...]

  • Accidental Arugula Smoothie & A Really Strong Workout Week


    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 [...]

  • Gratitude Overflowing


    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 [...]

  • Throwdown and Touchdown


    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. [...]

  • Vacation Workouts, Eats And Treats


    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 [...]
