The Nancy Rose Performance Wear Contest was really enjoyable. I love reading all of your different interests in fitness. Normally I do an old fashioned drawing by placing everyone’s name in a hat, but this time I used a computer program that randomly generates names for contest. That was far easier than writing all the names on scraps of paper. Should have thought of this before! Our contest winner who   Read More ...

Since I train at home, I walk into the garage wearing some unusual outfits (especially when it’s cold outside). When Nancy Rose Performance contacted me regarding their workout clothes, I felt a little tingly. I could actual train in style!   I browsed the Nancy Rose Performance site and instantly fell in love with their clothes.  Often I find myself training right before running errands or picking up my kids,   Read More ...

I turned 34 a few weeks back. It was one of those, “Oh, shit!” days. Not because I repudiate turning older. It doesn’t bother me. It was more, “Oh, shit. I have to stop doing stuff for one hour today and celebrate me. I’m not sure if I have the time or really even care.” The time thing is obvious. My daily schedule and to-do list would easily wear out   Read More ...

Creating Change

This article popped up in my Facebook feed earlier this morning on Marianne Kane’s page. http://reembody.me/2013/09/10/the-6-most-shockingly-irresponsible-fitspiration-photos/ While I am not vehemently against these types of messages, I do see how they can mislead women looking to begin a journey toward better health. Yes, these can inspire. But how real are they? They are photos snagged from the web with transposed messages telling women to suck it up and get with   Read More ...

Inspiring Stories Training

  Question: Why do women  who lift always wear workout clothes? Answer: Because nothing else fits. I know, fit girl problems, right? But when Black Eyed Peas asked me what I was going to do with all that junk in my trunk, I honestly did not know the answer. So, I turned to the fittest butts in the business to give me the scoop on their favorite brands of jeans.   Read More ...

This morning I tiptoed into my son’s room to gather his clothes for the day. Though I was quiet, his little head popped out of his blanket cocoon and he gave me a big, “Hi, Mom!” My kids ventured back to school today, and though I wasn’t sending them off while two-fisting martinis, I also wasn’t the teary mom who waited until the classroom doors closed before I moped back   Read More ...

Family Life

Two online clients confessed to me the same thing this past week. They both had similar sentiments, beginning with, “I can’t imagine not working with you. I love how my body has transformed and I don’t want to stop training.” Then the expected but happened, “but I don’t like lifting.” Anyone who wakes with a taste for iron may feel this is an utter strike against all humanity. The benefits   Read More ...

Today’s post is an interview with Sol Orwell of Examine.com. If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you know I’m not big on supplements. For years my pantry was filled with different products– most of them half used or not even opened. I would fall for the hype, whether it was something I saw at the gym or something from a magazine. I believe that supplements played   Read More ...
