  • Building Your Workout Wardrobe

    Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 11.32.16 am

    So you’ve decided to start going to the gym. First off, yay you! Starting a healthy habit is difficult, but, if you stick to it, it can change your life.

    Though I am the first to say it doesn’t matter how you look at the gym but how you feel, the truth of the matter is, sometimes how you look affects how you feel. I remember when I started working out when I was a wee glasses-wearing Cheetos-eating teenager. I decided to venture out of my friends’ basements where we would waste days playing Dungeons & Dragons and into the real world, getting healthy being my #1 priority.

    Why I made this change is another story. The reason I bring it up now is because of the difference having a proper training wardrobe made. Continue reading

  • Why We DON’T Set New Years Resolutions


    Another year around the sun is upon us. This is a time when we all look back upon what we did (or didn’t) accomplish and make plans to “do things better this time.”

    Because the new year is a new start, right?

    I’m sorry, but it’s not. It’s just a number we’ll all incorrectly write for a while when we date things.  Yes, I’m being harsh. If you want to take a moment to grumble at me, go for it. You done? Good.

    But there is a light at the end of this pessimistic tunnel. Ready for it: It’s that EVERY DAY is a metaphorical “fresh start” for all of us. You are contently in the position to change, grow and thrive… all the god damn time. #truthbomb

    So instead of offering you a blog on how to set a new year resolution or about how this is your shot for a “fresh start”, I am going to offer you tools on how you can keep yourself in a continual state of striving, so this time next year 2017 won’t feel like anything other than a timeline for your accomplishments.

  • Everything Pumpkin: Good and Good For You

    image03It’s finally pumpkin spice latte season, which makes it the perfect time to learn why pumpkin is such an important dietary staple for the fall.

    “Though pumpkin alone is rich in potassium and chock-full of the antioxidant beta-carotene many pumpkin-flavored foods are a dieter's worst nightmare,” writes Christine Mattheis at Health.

    So ditch that Starbucks cup and make room for this delectable little squash.

    High in fiber, full of vitamins, and easy to roast, bake, or stew, pumpkin’s about to become your new fall BFF. (You didn’t think we’d let you get away with just drinking lattes, did you?) Continue reading

  • Get Real: It's #AllAboutTheBOOTY

    A 6-pack and the “ab crack” might be creeping up a bit as the most “liked” in social media rw-dmaks-pic-collagerankings – but (at least for now), a sculpted, toned backside remains the headlining story across platforms. We are obsessed with the booty…however, many of us are still wondering exactly how to get that booty – and I’m talking the real deal without Photoshop or the doctor’s office. Not to mention that it can get confusing because so much of what’s right - gets lost in the minutiae of the wrong stuff crowding our social media timelines.

  • 5 Ways To Stay Motivated In The Gym

    We are beings of emotion. It’s one of the things that make us human. Some of us are more emotional than others, but at some point we all feel happiness, love, sadness, and depression. Our feelings will have a big factor on our motivation in the gym and overall health progress. When talking to new training clients at my gym one of the biggest factors holding people back from their fitness aspirations is a lack of motivation.
