FULL LENGTH – BIG BURN Thanksgiving Workout (or any time you need a BIG BURN)

FULL LENGTH – BIG BURN Thanksgiving Workout (or any time you need a BIG BURN)

And here you go – the big burn total body workout! Now I warn you, I did this without ANY recovery between exercises, the idea is to keep your recovery to a minimum and bang it out as fast as you can. BUT – you’re pace is your own, if you need to slow it down, simply pause the video, collect yourself and go back at it. It is only 15 minutes of REAL work, but it’s the BEST 1 ...[Read More]

How to See What You’re Made of: Climb a Mountain…17 Times.

How to See What You’re Made of: Climb a Mountain…17 Times.

Several months ago, I said ‘Yes’ to the dare (ahem challenge) of a lifetime. I clearly had no idea what I was in for, and a part of me knows I did it because it sounded ‘badass’, and who doesn’t want to be a badass? And then it got ‘real’, and I got nervous….and scared. I had formally committed to do something I really had no idea would be possible, ...[Read More]

I am doing this challenge a different way

The Ball Core Strengthener Routine

Not sure about you, but I have the attention span of a toddler, especially when it comes to mundanity, and lets be serious, doing the same old routines over and over, not only have diminishing returns, but also happen to be painfully BORING. It’s actually one of the reasons all my workouts are short, yet dynamic, and constantly changing (rarely do you do the same thing longer than a minute). While ...[Read More]
