I have a meathead confession to make: Contrary to popular opinion in the strength world, I actually LOVE cardio. I know it’s really en vogue to hate on cardio in favor of lifting weights, but I just don’t care. I like to sweat. I like to feel my lungs...

Come sweat with me! All you need for this quickie is one kettlebell (or dumbbell, if you don’t a KB), a sturdy step or box, and an interval timer (or an app on your phone). This workout will only take you between 4-25 minutes depending on how many rounds...

Get ready to get sweaty! This Tabata (20 sec on/10 sec off) workout incorporates two upper body movements–which means it’s the perfect post-leg-day sweat sesh or perhaps when you’re nursing (and resting) a lower body injury. While your upper body will be the primary mover, you’re entire body will be involved,...

This quickie is super fun and effective, but it is slightly detail oriented–so you’ll need to read through/listen to the instructions with a bit of extra focus. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll LOVE what this quickie can do for your chin-up strength while simultaneously promoting fat...

Most of the time I wear a medium bikini bottom. Sometimes a large, depending on the designer and the cut. I used to wear a small (even an extra small at times) but those days are long gone. I prefer cheeky or even borderline thong bikini bottoms, which means...

Summer isn’t over yet. The kids are headed back to school soon. Clothing stores have begun to stock Autumn apparel. The sunlight hours are waning. But, we’ve still got plenty of gorgeous, sunny days to embrace and appreciate, and plenty of opportunities to get outside and move before the...

A day doesn’t go by where I’m not asked advice on something fitness or nutrition related, and I happily oblige because I am passionate about empowering women through strength. Women everywhere want to invest more in themselves, improve their physiques, and create sustainable eating and exercise habits. Essentially, they want to...
