Day 9 Core Workout

12 Days of Fitness Challenge – Day 9: Holiday Cutie Core Workout

It's Day 9 of the 12 Days of Fitness Holiday Workout Challenge and I am so impressed with your dedication! No matter how baggy the holiday sweater, it's always nice to know you have a strong tummy underneath! Have you ever seen a beautiful woman and wished she would just stand up straight?! I have! Good posture from a strong core doesn't only make us look taller and slimmer, it prevents injury and low back pain too. Grab a mat, it's time to sculpt your holiday abs, cutie!

Congratulations to the Winners of the 12 Days of Fitness Challenge!

I can't believe the holidays have already come and gone! I just got back from Oahu where I spent Christmas with R and his rather large family. The trip was a balanced combination of relaxation, chaos, excitement, food, and workouts. I just wish there had been a little bit more sun! It probably rained 80% of the time. That was an unexpected bummer since I've only been to Hawaii during the spring and summer months. But, hey, it was still vacay, so I can't really complain!   After 10 days of island life, I am happy to be home and getting back into my routine! It's Monday, and the first day back to work, so I can't say the transition

Day 11 Treadmill Interval Workout

12 Days of Fitness Challenge – Day 11: Naughty or Nice List Interval Workout

The 12 Days of Fitness Challenge is almost over! I've had so much fun working out with you over the past 10 days. Have you? It sure seems like it! I'm so impressed with your hard work and dedication to the challenge. I can't get over how awesome all of your check-ins have been. Interval training is getting a lot of press for it's fat-burning results. And, that's because it works! Interval training is a series of "pushes" and active rests that take your heart rate up near its max and back down to equilibrium. This creates an EPOC, or an excess post-exercise oxygen consumption in your body. What you get is an amazing "after-burn" affect. Your metabolism will be on FIRE for hours after

12 Days of Fitness Day 5 Swiss Ball Workout

12 Days of Fitness Challenge – Day 5: Sleigh Bells Swiss Ball Workout

It's Day 5 of your 12 Days of Fitness Holiday Workout Challenge and you're in for a treat. I love using a Swiss ball in my workouts to add extra core toning to my strength training. Creating an unstable environment (or having to balance with the exercise ball) forces you to contract your ab muscles the whole time and amps up the calorie burn! This workout will sculpt your body from head-to-toe so let's get to it! Download your printable version by right clicking here and selecting "Save/Download As."
