Want to target your core and train your whole body?

Try These Functional Bodyweight Moves Long before bodyweight training became “in vogue,” those of us who have been around the block for a while trained this way because all the popular “toys” you now see in group exercise rooms weren’t around. We learned the art of bodyweight training and how to properly position our body against gravity because gravity was all we had. Like good and bad fashion, what’s old is new again and bodyweight training is no exception.

How to Stay Healthy During the Holidays

Yes, those two words can be used in the same sentence, even when temptation surrounds us and routines are lost in the flourish of holiday madness. Even when kids are home from school, family is visiting from out of town, and our house feels like an endless hub of activity.

The third question might require some soul searching, and of course I love that question because that’s where true growth and life-changing opportunities

Today is the Youngest You Will Ever Be

Sometimes it’s our friends who know us best and sometimes all it takes is a little Dove dark chocolate for some true insight. I’m proud of my age, how about you? Seldom a week goes by where I don’t announce to one of my fitness classes: “Take a look at the clock and note the date and time… Remember, today is the youngest you’ll ever be. This hour will never repeat itself, this experience will never happen again, and you’ll never be as young as you are right now. That said; what are you waiting for? We don’t get repeats and second chances are rare. Five Tips to Take Advantage of Time… Today: 1. Today… Inhale confidence and exhale self-doubt. Your breath is the key to good posture and conscio

Dear Angie, Please help me get back on the wagon!

Hello Everyone, This week I wanted to share a different type of blog. It’s actually a letter I received from a reader who wrote to me on my website. She agreed to let me share our exchange, as her concerns and struggles are not uncommon. I believe her words will resonate with many of you, just as they did with me, and it is my hope that my responses will prove helpful to those who might need a little extra boost of motivation and a few tips to get back on the wagon. Kristine's Message: "Hello, My name is Kristine and I am a 43-year-old housewife and mother of 4 children.
