Work For It Wednesday – Tricep Kickbacks

This move from 80 Day Obsession challenges the eff outta me, and it’s not perfect, but the first time I tried this move for 15 reps I needed to take a break, so that I got 15 each side with no break is a victory in itself and I’ll take it, spaghetti arms and all!

The killer is right after THIS move, she goes into 15 triceps pushups, because I think it’s been established Autumn eats crazy with a side of WTF for breakfast 😉

It’s Wednesday – GO WORK FOR IT.

Why I Am Loving Country Heat

I have been truly surprised by how much I am loving Country Heat. I have always been open to any music that has a beat, but Country music was never really at the top of my list (in my defense, a LOT of it can be super cheesy!)

But like I said, as a Coach, I really do take pride in my ability to try things before deciding how I feel about them, and there was SO much buzz around this program at Summit that you really could not help but want to try it and see what all the noise was about!

The trainer Autumn and I… we have had our differences in the past (she is unaware of this as she cant hear me yelling at her through the TV – lucky for her!), because man does she WORK YOU in Hammer & Chisel and the 21 Day Fix/21Day Fix Extreme programs. She has effective programs but I personally found myself annoyed at her style sometimes, so I was a little ambivalent about signing on to do another program led by her after 2 straight rounds of Hammer & Chisel with her.

Well… lets just say it is a good thing I decide things for myself and don’t let preconceived notions get in my way, because its an AWESOME program and I actually find myself enjoying Autumn – she is a bit more relaxed and fun in this program (because its about dancing, duh!)

Here’s a short summation as to why I am digging this program so much:

  • The workouts are no longer than 30 minutes. Coming off of Hammer and Chisel, where some of them were 54 minutes, 30 minutes is EASY PEASY. And let’s me sleep a bit later than 4:30!
  • It’s teaching me better rhythm and how to be more sensual and smooth with my body… I can tend to be sort of herky-jerky sometimes, much to my chagrin.
  • It’s not a lot of memorization…  I love Cize, but in the first couple times doing each routine, memorizing 8 moves in a sequence sometimes had me in a tizzy until I got the hang of it, so I really love Autumn’s pairing of just 2 moves at a time.
  • The supporting cast – she picked some FUN people to do this workout with her! Most people are captivated by “Cupcake” but there is a guy called Kenny who steals the show for me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. He’s just smooth moves and having a blast, and I dig it.
  • The workouts fly by! I am still drenched at the end, yet I find myself amped and ready for more, whereas with most other programs I will be honest and confess I spend a lot of time watching the clock!

Have you been considering giving it a try?

when in doubt dance it out

Superworkout Saturday – Flashback Edition

This is me during last years Saturday Superworkout – Beachbody had Broadway St shut down, and 25,000 of us Beachbody Coaches worked out at Sunrise with 5 of the Beachbody Celebrity Trainers – Sagi Kalev, Autumn Calabrese, Tony Horton, Shaun T and Chalene Johnson.


Have you ever seen anything like this?! SO amazing.

Now, I am a morning person, so the earliness wasn’t an issue for me, but even if I wasn’t a morning person – IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO. WORTH. IT.

You cannot even put into WORDS how amazing it was; how absolutely packed with energy. SO amazing.

To share in the fitness groove with 25,000 other people as the sun rises on yet another day on this wonderful planet, just priceless.

Still to this day, one of the most amazing feelings ever.

And today… we do it again! The lineup might be a little different, but oh… the energy… you can count on it being just as amazing if not more amazing. Pics to follow!

What are YOU doing to sweat today?

Workout Wednesday – Country Heat is Coming Soon!

Do you like dancing? More specifically, do you like line dancing? You a country music fan? Many of my friends are… it’s not 100% my thing, but I enjoy some of it, and I really do just love moving my body, haha. But even I am totally looking forward to the launch of this one!

The creator of the super popular (and super effective!) 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, and half of the Hammer & Chisel duo, Autumn Calabrese, has come out with a new workout program called Country Heat, and it looks to be super fun and fat-burning!

Does this sound like something you would be into? You can sign-up here to receive notice of when it’s available – right now we only know July 2016. This also shows you some sneak peeks!

Looks so fun -I will definitely be starting this program after I get back from Beachbody Coach Summit!

As always, if you would like to connect and receive help with your health and fitness goals – let’s connect!

Workout Wednesday – Next Round of Hammer & Chisel!

And I am inviting YOU to JOIN me!

It’s 8 weeks, 2 trainers, a fabulous variety of workouts, and a great challenge that would have you in the best shape of your life for summer!

Easy? No. Sorry, EASY doesn’t get you to your goals.

Worth it? Yes!

Got what it takes to join me?

Friday Fitness – The Master’s Hammer and Chisel

Beachbody recently rolled out its newest home fitness program, and I could NOT be more excited about this one! It’s a hybrid between the creator of the 21 Day Fix, and the creator of Body Beast – both of which are at the top of my list of favorite Beachbody programs. 21 Day Fix was the program that finally opened my eyes to nutrition, and what food groups I typically over/under eat. It was with the 21 Day Fix that I learned how to eyeball a PROPER portion, which is really very helpful in keeping my Diabetes under control.

Body Beast… well, I couldn’t speak more highly of it, honestly. I have always loved workouts that were more weight-training based, and I couldn’t be happier with my results so far – I FEEL strong, I can feel my strength improving because I find myself going up on weights, something I really never thought I would do again after a car accident 9 years ago.

Hammer and Chisel NOW AVAILABLE

The creators of these two awesome, popular program teamed up to create The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, and its amazing! I was able to get a sneak peek via Beachbody on Demand, and I have been excited for it to come out!

The Master’s Hammer and Chisel delivers breathtaking, body-changing results in as little as 60 days. Workouts are 30-40 minutes, so perfectly easy to squeeze into your busy day!

We’re starting a Challenge/Accountability Group in January – if you want in, you better connect with me now because this program is anticipated to sell out, and you don’t want to miss out on the fun, do you?
