    I'm so excited to share more workouts with you guys now that I'm programming for Y2 Strength. The workouts are perfect for sharing on my blog because they require minimal equipment and space.

    Hey, hey! It's been way too long since I've shared a workout so I decided to post the workout that I did with my very first strength training classes at Y2 Yoga! We launched our new Y2 Strength classes this week and everyone is so pumped about them. We're running a four-week test in May [...]

  • Barbell + Resistance Band Workout for the Booty and the Whole Body!

    I've got a barbell and resistance band workout for you today that's no joke. I put this workout together for myself yesterday at the gym and I am feeling it something serious today.

    We have officially reached the time of year where I embrace the treadmill. Don't get me wrong, I am NOT complaining about temperatures ranging from the 20s-40s when that's balmy for many of you (and I am fondly remembering all those 70 degree runs I had in November and December).

  • Weekend Warm Up Workout

    Hello and a big welcome to the weekend! Unfortunately, it's FREEZING and all I want to do is stay bundled up, inside and warm. The wind is bone-chilling.
