  • Back to Strength Focus + Weekly Workouts


    Happiest of Sundays to everyone! Hope you're having a lovely Labor Day Weekend! Sullie and I hopped in the car and headed down to Georgia to hang out with my grandmother for a few days. Judging from this SnapChat I posted this morning (follow me @JenDeCurtins), I think it's safe to say all parties are [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • Fired Up Squat + Upper Body Workout


    Welcome to Friday...the fired up edition! What am I so fired up about? First, squats! I LOVE SQUATS! My clients know they most likely won't get through a workout with me without doing some type of squats and push ups. They are two of my favorite movements ever due to all of their awesome benefits. [...]

  • Total Body Weight Room Workout


    I am setting my intention to post at least one workout each week for you. I have a good one to share today! I used it for a training client earlier this week and also did it myself that same day. I'm still feeling it two days later! The last couple of workouts that I [...]

  • Five Miles Never Felt So Good


    Happy weekend! Mine is a balance between hanging out and relaxing and running around trying to get the last of Christmas taken care of. This month flew by! It is a beautiful day here in North Carolina - 72 and a little overcast with peeks of sunshine coming through the clouds. It was too nice [...]

  • You Never Know


    I have been in a really contemplative place lately. I don't know how better to describe it but I'm in major evaluation mode. I'm okay. I'm just thinking about a lot of things and working on a lot of things. This is a good thing. I taught a yoga class this morning and during my [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • Standing in the Same Spot Two Years Later


    It's been a rainy, cool weekend and that has felt pretty perfect for me. I have spent a lot of time in the yoga studio, coaching CrossFit and hibernating at home. On Friday afternoon I got an SOS request to help out with the yoga teacher trainees at the studio. I led them through their [...]

  • 10-1 Upper & Lower Body Workout


    Happy Saturday! I just had to use all the motivation I had in me to get myself to the gym this afternoon. I ran there as an easy way to get my cardio in - just under 2 miles! Once I got there I quickly programmed this great upper and lower body workout featuring some [...]

  • My First Murph Experience


    Today I completed a well-known CrossFit hero WOD for the first time. "Murph" is one of the workouts that has quite a big reputation and you hear it referenced all the time...mostly in regards to how brutal it is. It's typical for CrossFit boxes to do Murph on Memorial Day weekend. The workout is in [...]

  • Such A Girl


    What a day. I feel like I've been going full-speed ahead but haven't even made a dent in my to do list. I had a productive morning...taught a yoga private, meetings, emails and trained clients but then my afternoon was a disaster. Let me explain... We were supposed to max out on shoulder press, back [...]

  • Squats, Lunges and Cupcakes


    Remember the workout I posted yesterday? It ended up taking me about 30 minutes total to complete with the running and CrossFit WOD and clearly it was effective because my glutes (we'll be PC here) are sore today. When girls ask me "how do I get rid of this" while pointing to their upper thighs, [...]
