Adrenal fatigue, Panic Attacks, and Utter Chaos: My Story

Adrenal fatigue, Panic Attacks, and Utter Chaos:  My Story
So I'm type A. I won't deny it or be ashamed. Type A's are the movers and shakers. We handle business. We get shit done. If a little is great, then more must be better, right? I always thought so until I found my life looking like an episode of House not long ago: I'm young (ish) , and seem to be in great health, but I think I'm dying. I'm sure of ...

Hitting the road this Spring? Here are some moves to keep your back healthy!

Hitting the road this Spring?  Here are some moves to keep your back healthy!
There is one thing I dislike about Spring. Around the beginning of April, as Easter approaches, our snowbird clients make plans to go back up north.  After working with them all winter, learning what's new in their lives and seeing the positive changes in their bodies, it's more than a little sad to see them go.  I'm kind of known for say...

Women Over 40: Getting Better Results from your Workouts

Women Over 40: Getting Better Results from your Workouts
Let's talk about cortisol for a minute.  Cortisol is the "fight or flight" hormone your body produces when it is under stress. It's been proven that too much cortisol flowing through out bodies can cause weight gain, particularly abdominal weight. I know, I know...we all have stress. We have families and jobs and deadlines and super high expec...

Rugged Maniac and Taking the Plunge

Rugged Maniac and Taking the Plunge
I'm posting this pic of myself soaking wet, with no makeup on and a look on my face that is undoubtably not a smile.  But yet I am super proud of this pic, and I think I look amazing in it.  This pic was taken at last weekends Rugged Maniac, a 5K obstacle race where Jenn and I navigated 25 "hard but doable" physical and mental challenges....

The Benefits of Circuit Training and a Workout for You!

The Benefits of Circuit Training and a Workout for You!
Jenn and I learned a ton at the IDEA Personal Training Institute we attended a few weekends ago. And a lot of it was about the benefits of Circuit Training. I've always loved Circuits because you get your cardio in with some added strength training and, unlike the treadmill or elliptical, it isn't boring. But it was interesting to find out tha...

Month One Results: My "Female Over-40" Weight Loss Journey

Month One Results:  My "Female Over-40" Weight Loss Journey
Some of you know that I began a new approach to my personal meal and exercise program last month. But for those that don't, here's the story:  I was experiencing some not so pleasant symptoms of the hormone fluctuations that come along with being 47. If you've been there, or are right there with me you know that every year brings a new hormona...

Barre

Barre

Our Barre classes have a small but loyal following.  If you haven't tried this combo of dance positioning, traditional strength training, yoga, and Pilates yet, I invite you to check out the schedule online and sign up for a class.  It's the perfect workout to hit all areas of your fitness...strength, cardio, and mobility.  As an added bonus it definitely will make you more confident in your body!

Jenn and I both fell for the benefits and structure of Barre from the moment we took our first class.  But we have eliminated many of the practices that we felt were counterproductive and in some instances, dangerous (the infamous "tucking" comes to mind).  Our Barre program shows amazing results with regular participation, and is safe and fun too!  Seriously, come join us!  Sign up for classes here.

Did you know that if you are a paid Personal Training client, that classes are free? Just throwing it out there...

I'm in Peri Menopause!

I'm in Peri Menopause!

OK, that's a totally weird announcement.  But I only share it with you because I've begun an exercise and nutrition program designed to combat my symptoms of anxiety, sleeplessness, and a brand new stubborn weight gain around my middle.  It's based on the science of hormones (I do love my book facts) and does not include anything I wasn't doing already...just shaking up the WHEN and HOW.  I'm 10 days in and can already notice a difference (3 inches off the middle, anyone?). And, I've found it to be extremely doable even for a workaholic like me!
