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. But, pre-baby, even during my pregnancy, I loved most the programs that I created for myself. Because I can write a mean program. […]

Workout Wednesday: Yoga and Kettlebells.

My fit pregnancy came to an end on Valentine’s Day, and I’m making the transition now to fit momma. Not yet though, I’m enjoying lots of baby snuggles and some time off from my day job right now. But I’ll get there… If you’ve been following my journey, and reading my posts, you know that […]

Workout Wednesday: Still going & post baby goals.

It’s happened. Baby Rebel has decided to start dropping, and tugging my belly down along with him, so I had to do it. I had to buy a maternity band. It helps. Some. It doesn’t provide full relief, especially on my round ligaments, but it is better than nothing. The count down is on, he’s […]

Workout Wednesday: Classes, LWF, and Cardio.

I did something I haven’t done in awhile this past Sunday – I worked out with my class. Right there, alongside them, for all five rounds. Typically, since getting pregnant and having that sluggish touch-and-go energy, I will demonstrate the full out exercise, a rep or two and give the modified versions of each, then […]

Why client talk is important.

This isn’t going to be a typical Workout Wednesday post. It’s Wednesday, and I did workout. I had quite a few different posts I’ve thought about working up for today, but this is something that I feel is a little more important. Why is talking with your client important? Not only does it establish some […]

Workout Wednesday: New Shoulders & Back.

Mentally last week, in the gym for my leg day, I was at odds with how I wanted to approach the workout of the day. I wanted to do what I call an “eyeball” workout routine that day. Switch it up a little. But, sometimes when we’ve been at it in the gym for a […]
