“Honey, not everyone thinks like you”

It's another day after school that my daughter climbs into the car in a huff. She is visibly upset about something and by this point in the school year I have a feeling I know what it is. "People got mad at me in P.E. again" she exclaims with a pseudo sigh. She's come to …

Stay Motivated This Holiday Season!

  It's hard for me to look past Thanksgiving this week, but before you know it, all the turkey and stuffing will be gone...and we will look in the mirror next Monday morning and be like "Ah hell!" Thoughts of "why didn't I workout more this week" or "I gotta get my butt in gear …

If at first you don’t succeed…

NEVER GIVE UP!! You can do anything. No matter how old you are. No matter how much experience you have. No matter who says you can't do it! This is my first Granite Games workout. I decided to do the ASRx in my division (Masters 35-39) instead of the scaled version (like I did in …

I prefer the term “Neapolitan”

I've had people ask me how I am a Beachbody Coach when I do Cross Fit workouts. My answer is quite simple: because I am. I mean, why not? Why do the two have to be separate? Why should I only be allowed to do one or the other? That's like telling me I can either choose chocolate …

“Because of you, I didn’t give up”

One of the best things about working from home as a fitness coach is being able to help so many people across the country and in Canada. I'm more than a personal trainer - I'm your accountability piece. If you aren't checking in with my groups, then I'm gonna be checking in on you and …

Fired Up About Fitness

When people meet me today, they assume that I've loved fitness my whole life and/or have always been fit. The truth is (and many of my friends and former soccer coaches can attest to this fact) that I used to HATE to workout. To run. To push myself. Period. I didn't like pain. I still …

Get Ready To Face the Halloween Hangover!

Well this morning changed a few things for me when I stepped out of bed and onto my right foot in major PAIN. Hours later and with the help of my Facebook friends and their "diagnosis," I am quite possibly dealing with Plantar Faschitis which is something I've never dealt with before and I'm not …
