Program changing. Need to stay focused because: Shoulders.

I’ve always enjoyed dabbling in other programs. Ones either created by a trainer friend of mine who lives in my town, or some of the fit pros I follow on social media.

Spark creativity: Why I do other trainers programs.

Six weeks ago, I started Jessie Hilgenberg’s Home Edition workout program. It was interesting to see how many people, stood off to the sidelines of my social-media-led workout life, scratching their heads. “Aren’t you a personal trainer?” and “Why are you doing someone else’s trainer?

Not only does it establish some […]

Real people. Real bodies.

… It’s quite something really, how my mind works. In the middle of holding a rear delt raise for what felt like a million hours at a photo shoot today, my brain started kicking, as usual, into overdrive. I’m on a “vacation” and my brain just won’t shut off. What else is new, right? Never […]

Shortcut to Size.

Unfortunately, it’s still a huge mindset that if a woman weight lifts, she’s going to to get big. Like Jay Cutler big. Despite more and more proof today that that’s false, it still somehow holds ground. Making women fear the weight rack or machines. Sure, there are women out there who quest to be bigger. […]
