In no random order (except for the last one!), I’d like to share my favorite fitness things because why not. The holidays are here; it’s time to celebrate staying fit!
12 - Dumbbells. Heavy ones.
11 - Sneakers . My favorite brands are Puma, Nike, & No Bull.
10 - Energy Drinks & Powders. Some favorites are X2Energy, Celsius, C2, EarlyBird & TypeZero
9 - BCAAs. Xtend is on my “Subscribe & Save”
8 - Protein Powder. I’m a big fan of Jay Robb Whey Protein, Bulletproof & VitalProteins
7 - Vitamins & Supplements. Shout...
Food is either celebrated or it's feared (or both - as we are nearing the holidays).
Think of what it was like a kid. Some of my favorite memories as a kid involved food. We had birthday parties full of pizza and cake with friends. Every holiday spent with family was surrounded by yummy food like turkey, mac and cheese, stuffing and other goodies.

[An opinion piece]
When I first began spreading the #irockthesportsbra movement, I identified myself as being a part of the body positive community until one day…. I was not. Because I didn’t look like “her” - curvy or round.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I’m the biggest fan of compound, complex, full body exercises, which is why I created the RIP then ROCK Workout Series . All of the workouts are focused on unique exercises that target the entire body, challenging it in a way whereby the body experiences new movements.
Specifically, all the workouts focus on 3 things that make fat-burning exercise, well, FAT-BURNING:
I’m 38! 2 years shy of … dun dun dun… 40! I’ve basically reached the midway point of life expectancy, they say. But I’ve never felt younger.
What do we do if you say things like: “I am too old to workout like that”. “I can’t workout like that, my body can’t move like that”??
I say….STOP….hold the phone…. You are dead wrong!
How is it that I workout like I’m 20 and am in better shape than I ever was in my 20s?
First, it all starts...
