If the shoe fits…

It is no secret: I teach group fitness more than I breathe…ok so that may be a small exaggeration but since opening up my own women’s fitness studio, I have learned that I have to be ready to teach at a moments notice in case one of my instructors gets sick-  because no matter what, […]

Go…take a hike #ahnu

When it comes to hiking, I admit to be a newbie. When it comes to shoe comfort, I’m a snob. I love a shoe that is stylish PLUS doesn’t hurt my feet. Often, the 2 don’t seem to be married in shoes lately. It’s like a bad divorce. Who do you live with?  You have […]

Berry Oat Cobbler {Eat Better, Not Perfect}

I am really putting forth effort to cook more (above basics).  Food prep for the past 5 years has been basic proteins, veggies, and sweet potatoes- nothing more.  So what changed last week? Well my son, whom I love more than life, has decided he wants to try out for football next year so we […]

Why can’t I lose weight?

Over the course of 5 years, I have trained hundreds of girls in my personal training programs and thousands in my e-programs. I started my career as a personal trainer with “6 Week Phit Challenges” 5 years ago. These online groups were so popular I had a wait list to join because I typically only take […]

Banana Nut Bread Protein Pancakes

I can’t cook. I’m not kidding, Hell’s Kitchen won’t be calling me anytime soon. I’m not a good chef, I’m not good at coming up with recipes, and I am not good at making ideas up on a whim. So- since this actually turned out pretty yummy? I’m stoked!   Normally though…this is how I […]
