Shox Jock

I recently had a birthday so you know what that means.  I am, literally, not getting any younger. As I am aging I notice things on me hurt a little more.  Don't want to admit it, but it's true.  I still have no trouble keeping up the workouts and instructing my classes but I have learned I rely on 3 things more than ever to get me through ...

Nama…STAY!

Where I live it can get pretty cold in the winter.  And because it gets so cold I keep my socks on for everything.  I am very much a "socks on" kind of girl. Socks on for just about anything and everything.    Now before you let your minds go into the gutter I am talking specifically about keeping my socks on for Pilates and yoga.  I suppose ...

Suck It Up, Walk It Off and Do Your Job

Recently I experienced the biggest concern, worry, dilemma, fear, bane, nightmare of a Fitness Instructor.  No I didn't split my pants midway through class.  It was worse.  I woke up with a bum foot. I don't know how I did it exactly.  Foot felt fine on Sunday.  Woke up on Monday with the bottom of my foot, from the top of the ball to the ...

Hello Lycra My Old Friend

Some of my students refer to me as skinny or fit or thin.  And while I appreciate people thinking I am fit and thin the truth is I harbor a dirty, little, tricky-dicky secret.  It's not that I am really all that thin.  I am a bit pear shaped.  I am a little curvier through the hips, more thigh surface area than I would like, and my calves can ...

Who Says I Don’t Go Hard?

When it comes to working out I am very particular about equipment.  Today I want to talk about my socks. Many of you might not think of socks as equipment but I can assure you they are.  It is our feet that get us through a workout, let alone around this world, so why not make sure they have the proper gear. For me my socks have to be ...

60 Minutes

One of my Ten Commandments is to exercise at least 60 minutes a day, four times a week. Some might wince when thinking about dedicating an hour of your day, actually just four days, to fitness and I have read many articles stating that busting it up in to 20 minute sessions is fine as long as you are doing something, But I respectfully ...

March Playlist

While cleaning out my emails I came across an article a friend of mine sent me some time ago.  The article talked about how Instructors have become the new DJ's.  Without sounding too full of my own damn self I have to agree.  Not because I am the arbiter of impeccable taste when it comes to music but because I am always looking for what is new ...

The Ten Commandments

Later this year I will celebrate my 10 year anniversary of my journey to weight loss and a healthier life.  And I am not going to lie it hasn't always been easy.  As you get older it gets harder.  But I am convinced that I have been able to maintain a happy weight, vigorous exercise regimen and jamming lifestyle because of my Ten Commandments...

December Playlist

As you can tell I haven't posted in awhile because I, like everyone else,  got caught up in the holiday broo-haha.  Why is it the minute we have cleared the Thanksgiving dishes off the table we start racing to Christmas?  It seems as though the moment our calendars turn to Black Friday we come off the blocks sprinting all the way to Christmas ...

Music-copia

With Thanksgiving upon us I decided to bring you what I can best describe as a cornucopia playlist.   Whenever I see a cornucopia, and lets face it they are everywhere this year, I think about all the different goodies it holds. So I decided to fill my cornucopia  playlist with an eclectic mix of songs, each from a different work out that I ...
