Where do I even start? – Workout guidelines for beginners

fitness girl tricep dips

So you want to start working out and get in better shape or maybe just be healthier. You might not necessarily be interested in getting super strong or muscular, but you wouldn’t mind tightening up a few spots, feeling better, or dropping a couple of pounds. You’re ready to take the dive, but there’s just […] Read more…

Weight lifting for people who prefer cardio

I remember my first time getting laser hair removal. I didn’t know what to expect in terms of the pain level, and Google results weren’t exactly comforting. But I was determined to get the most out of my Groupon. I sat in the reclined chair and the attentive technician handed me a stress ball. “This […] Read more…

How to change your body and feel like a bad ass

When I first started working out, I was all about the treadmill and elliptical–40 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I just wanted to be skinny. My attempts to “tone” were basically doing the triceps push-down machine and the hip abductor machine. Maybe some leg extensions too. I remember noticing that the fittest people […] Read more…

So between running to home depot all the damn time, dealing with contractors, my house being a mess, managing my workload and trying […] Read more…

A lot of personal drama has stripped me of my essence, […] Read more…

Feeling tough?

Then try this move out the next time you’re at the gym: It’s some kind of burpee-chinup hybrid dealie. Sure gets the job done! Wish I could have gotten better footage of it, but my camera died right when I turned it on, so we had to resort to using my phone. Anyway, have a […] Read more…

My review of Jamie Eason’s Livefit program

A few months ago I mentioned that I was changing my workout routine. It’s usually good to switch things up, and I definitely learned a few things from it. At the time of the switch I was working out 4x a week doing an upper and lower body split. Cardio was usually Bodyrock or something […] Read more…

Spotlight on Sprinting

(Source) Sprinting is not your average exercise. When you’re doing that mad dash, puking is not far-fetched. Injuries can occur if you’re not careful. And soreness is guaranteed. But you know what else is guaranteed? Amazing results. So who is sprinting for? People who want to take it to the next level. People who are […] Read more…
