Burn Fat + Build Muscle with this Quick Workout

I sometimes think back to the days when I was younger...so much extra time + freedom to workout whenever I wanted, for as long as I wanted.

Now, let me be honest, I spent more time doing fun stuff and partying than exercising, but the point is, I had the time to workout if I wanted to.

Fast forward to today. How do we get the body we want with little time on our hands?

Are we just screwed? Time to "throw in the towel"?

Listen, I have found a way to keep my workouts few and fast...and still able to get incredible results.

Interested? If so, you're going to love what I have for you today.

There's a type of workout called Metabolic Conditioning and the beauty of this type of workout is that it BURNS FAT + BUILDS MUSCLE at the same, which is pretty hard to do.

The huge perk of these types of workouts is that they don't take long. 20-30 minutes max.

Bam! 

So that you can get a taste of what I'm talking about I had Rocco (yes, my 7 year old) film me doing a metabolic conditioning workout in our backyard.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

And if you're on Instagram be sure to follow me because I'll be posting one of these beauties every week.

Here's to getting strong + ridiculously healthy!

FAT LOSS: The Type of Workout Matters

I spent a good ten years working SO hard to get in shape and nothing would happen!

I was completely frustrated by all the running I was doing and all the food deprivation I was putting myself through with no results.

It affected my mood and my happiness.  I would avoid going to events because I felt like I had nothing to wear that didn't make me look "fat".

But I was doing everything I was supposed to do!!

Doing cardio at least 5 days a week, keeping my calorie intake really low and avoiding anything remotely considered as junk food (I didn't have pizza or ice cream for two years!)

I would scream in my head, "Why in the hell am I not getting results?!'

I wish I knew then what I know now.  I could have saved myself YEARS of misery.

Now I know that the TYPE of workout you do matters. Especially if you want to lose fat.

I also now know that endurance cardio (aka steady state cardio) is the last type of workout on the list of priorities for fat loss.

Since today is my birthday, I wanted to celebrate by sending you something that just might be a gamechanger for you.

Getting results doesn't have to be so frustrating. The key is knowing what works :)

A New Way to Get a Strong Core

Your core is your powerhouse.

A strong core will not only slim you out in your midsection, but it also helps to get rid of annoying low back pain & knee pain.

Here's a fun fact: Did you know that your glutes are part of your core? (Just in case your wondering what in the hell glutes are, that means your booty.)

I filmed a brand-spanking new core workout for ya!

This workout has a new twist to give you a strong + smokin' core.

Watch the video below to see what this new twist is...

BEFORE YOU GO- Be sure to grab the Handy Workout Guide I made for you to go with the video.

You can download the guide right to your smartphone pix so that you can take this workout with you anywhere!

Summer's around the corner...let's get to work :)

ON THE GO BENCH WORKOUT

Need to add a little something extra to your morning walk? I love the challenge of finding little workout opportunities along the trail. I use stairs, walls, benches, or even rocks to enhance my walk and give it a little something extra. I feel better when I have taken a moment to focus on putting my environment to work for me. Use this everyday on-the-go routine to enhance your daily walk!
