While it's tempting to go ham at the gym in January, often it's more recovery—not more workouts—that our bodies really need. Find out my top ten methods of recovery and how to implement them into your routine.
I will push you to stretch, cool down, do mobility work, and take rest days as much as I’ll get in your face at one of my classes. Why? Because these things help you move better—that’s a fact backed by science.
You don't need a lot of time, space, or fancy equipment to get a solid workout in. You can simply move back the coffee table and use regular, household items in lieu of fitness equipment. I'm showing you different workouts you can do using a couch, headband, desk chair, rubbermaid tote, and other objects you already own.
Three of the basic movements are good mornings, squat, and press. Once you master these, you can advance to other, more complicated movements. You can progress a good morning to a swing or a deadlift. A press becomes your foundation for a clean or snatch. Finally, you’ll move forward from a squat to...a fancier squat.
The reason it’s important to follow a well-rounded program is the same reason it’s important to fuel-up post workout: You can’t do ONE thing and expect to see results. You can’t just exercise and forget about nutrition. You can’t do the same workout repeatedly, ignoring the muscles it doesn’t hit.

Do you remember back in the ‘90s and early 2000s when butts were out and skinny was in? Man that sucked. Because I think women should take pride in their booty, here are my top picks for denim.
Because athletic clothes make up 95% of what I wear (the other 5% reserved for jeans or date night outfits) I have pretty high standards. I want clothes that make me feel good and can withstand every workout I put my body through.
This is a list of my favorite things, all of which make my gym life and home life, well, better.
