  • Dealing with Exercise Guilt + Weekly Workouts


    A few weeks ago I received a question from a reader about exercise guilt. "Do you ever feel exercise guilt when you are unable to exercise for a few days? I ran my first 1/2 marathon 2 weeks ago and I have not been as active as I was prior to my race. Any advice, [...]

  • 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.

  • 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 [...]

  • This Week’s Workouts + The Best Rest Day


    Saturday was the best rest day ever. I bounded out of bed at 7 a.m. after an awesome night of sleep and knocked out a blog post while I drank a green smoothie. I finalized my playlists and readings and then headed off to Om Yoga to teach my Saturday morning hot vinyasa class. I [...]

  • This Week’s Workouts: My First Time RXing Fran!


    Thanks to my unusual midweek travel to see my grandmother, I'm still off my normal workout balance in that yoga has taken a backseat for the last few weeks. It's okay though because I hit a major milestone last Tuesday in CrossFit...read on for more details! :) Monday Cardio/Strength 5 rounds: 250 meter sprint on [...]

  • Yoga Changes Things + This Week’s Workouts


    I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. Per usual, mine was yoga focused. I always teach on Saturday and Sunday mornings but it was also a yoga teacher training weekend for Y2 and I am assisting with training this year so my afternoons were spent in the training. I am approaching my third anniversary of teaching [...]

  • Food & Fitness Inspiration for a GREAT week ahead!


    Happy Monday! The sun is shining here in Charlotte and we are enjoying perfect fall weather that is crisp and energizing. It was 37 degrees when I woke up to go to yoga this morning. Our coldest morning since April! I had to turn my heat on for the first time last night. I am [...]

  • Stability, Core And Strength Circuit For Runners


    A couple of weeks ago I led a Stability, Core and Strength Clinic at Metro for the American Cancer Society's DetermiNation team. DetermiNation is a training program through the American Cancer Society in which participants are coached/trained to complete a half-marathon, full marathon or triathlon. Participants commit to raise money for the fight against cancer. [...]

  • 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 [...]
