40-Minute Full Body Circuit

40-Minute Full Body Circuit

40-Minute Full Body Circuit

We are everywhere in this workout.

And by everywhere I mean we are standing, we are on the ground, our intervals are super short, and sometimes longer.

We do some cardio, some weights and some stretch.

We use our bodyweight and weights.

Like I said, we are everywhere.

It’s awesome, you’re gonna love it!

Netflix Series I Recommend

This list is TOTALLY unrelated to this workout, or any workouts for that matter.

But… I thought what the hell? Maybe people will find it interesting. Or not.

The Last Kingdom

About the Vikings trying to claim the last kingdom of England. Amazing acting, fight scenes, story line and the lead character is not too hard to look at. Just saying.

The Fall

Sadly there are only 3 seasons of this crime-detective show. It stars Gillan Anderson as the detective and Jaime Dornan as the serial killer. I loved this series.

The OA

I don’t even know how to describe this show, expect that it’s awesome. The lead is a blind girl who has gone missing for seven years ago, and returns home, in her 20s with her sight restored, as well as a few other abilities. Can’t wait for season 2.

Riverdale

I watched this cause we thought it was a joke. A series about Archie, Jughead and Betty – in today’s time? WTHell? But, it is good. Jughead is homeless, his dad is a Hell’s Angel type dude, Ritchie has an affair with a teacher and Veronica’s dad is a mobster in jail. This show is seriously addicting.

Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones is a marvel character – so if you don’t like super hero shows stay away from this series. But, I love it. She’s tough, she’s mouthy and she drinks like a fish. She’s basically my newest girl crush.

House of Cards

Goes without saying, House of Cards needs to be on any must-watch list, however I am finding the newer seasons not nearly as good as season 1 and 2. You?

Sense8

Loving husband and I are addicted to this show and can’t wait for season 2. The premise of Sense8 is that eight strangers from all over the world who can mentally linked to each other, and the secret government agency hunting them down. Some of the best acting on television can be found on this series.

Stranger Things

Wow, this series rock! It is a sci-fi about a lost boy, a government lab steeped in terrible secrets, a mother who won’t rest until her son is found, and a weird little girl with a fetish for Eggo waffles.

The Crown

I adore the Queen, and even more so after watching this bio-series about her becoming the Queen of England. She is one tough woman.

The Killing

This series has wrapped itself up, with no more new seasons, but don’t let that stop you from watching. If you love crime drama’s (like The Fall listed above), you’ll love this series.

Marcella

A British crime series about a very, seriously flawed detective. However, those are the kind of characters I like.

TRX Circuit Workout

TRX Circuit Workout

TRX Circuit Workout

If you know me then you know that I am in love with… my husband, my dog and my TRX.

In that order too.

Or at least until I can teach the TRX how to vacuum 🙂  Hehe, just joking.

However, that would be super cool if my TRX could vacuum. Just saying if the makers of TRX are reading.

Anyways, the reason I love the TRX so much is that it makes your body do all the stabilizing. This, in turn, makes more muscles work.

And more muscles working makes me VERY happy.

TRX’s motto is “Make your body the machine”, and that’s just what this workout does.

For 50-minutes we power through 15 exercises, for three rounds.

It is sweaty, awesome fun!

Total Body Calorie Torching Workout

Total Body Calorie Torching Workout

This workout I’m solo.

No loving husband. No funny banter back and forth.

Being solo was my choice, too. And a purely selfish choice at that.

You see I did not want to listen to 40-minutes of moaning and groaning. I love the man, but for for the love of Pete can he complain.

He also WAS OVER THE MOON that I filmed without.

So, it was a win-win for everyone.

 

Other Calorie Torching Exercises

  • Sprint intervals (running)
  • Tabata workouts
  • Spin classes
  • Burpees 🙂
  • Rock climbing
  • Skipping rope
  • Rowing
  • Kettlebell swing
  • Hill workouts

All Levels Strength HIIT

All Levels Strength HIIT

All Levels Strength HIIT

While writing this blog I had my two trusty companions right beside me.

Bella and my afternoon kombucha.

Poor Bella hasn’t been feeling good this week though. She’s hasn’t been able to keep her food down.

Which is not like her.

She has thrown up pretty much everywhere. Living room, dining room, bedroom and my slipper (true story).

She’s even christened the new Studio.

This morning, while teaching my early morning class, she walked into the middle of the gym during our warm-up, threw up and then walked out.

Alrighty then. Now there’s a GREAT way to start a class.

Thankfully my crew have a fab sense of humour and it was all giggles and laughs.

However, poor Bell’s is not feeling her normal self.

Here’s hoping that a couple of days of special food from the vet will have her back to her old non-throwing-up self.

The deets:

Tools needed: A pair of heavy and light dumbbells

Workout best for: home or gym

Level: beginner – advanced

15-Minute Strength Workout

15-Minute Strength Workout

15 Minute Strength Workout

Well, it’s been a long time.

It’s been a long time since I blogged. A long time since I filmed a workout and a long time since I shaved my legs (TMI?).

However, I have a good reason.

I opened a new boutique fitness studio in Ladner.

In addition, I also re-vamped, re-branded and renewed my website.

Whew! December was a CRAZY, and I count my blessings for two things:

  • Loving husband
  • And spiced rum

They both got me through it all.

15-Minute Strength Workout

During the madness I had very little time to workout.

For 6-weeks I simply fit in what I could, and didn’t get down on myself for not doing more.

I told myself that I knew I would get back to it. But, in the meantime I would just fit what I could in and be happy with that.

And guess what? I actually listened to myself and hence this workout

(Wow. This is definitely a sign of growing up.)

The deets:

Tools needed: A pair of heavy, moderate and light dumbbells.

Workout best for: home

Level: beginner – advanced

30-Minute Full Body BOSU Ball Workout

30-Minute Full Body BOSU Ball Workout

30-Minute Full Body BOSU Ball Workout

A 30-minute full body workout using the BOSU ball, bodyweight and dumbbells.

Due to popular demand I am releasing a full body BOSU ball workout.

I try not to release workouts that require special tools, however my other two BOSU ball workouts  have a lot of views.

Collectively over 20,000 views.

Which is a lot for a channel like mine!

BOSU ball, it’s not a fad

With that many hits this tells me that A) the BOSU ball is a popular workout tool on ol’ YouTube, and B) not a lot of trainers are designing YouTube workouts with the BOSU ball.

Case in point my Strength & Cardio HIIT Workout I released a few weeks ago. This workout, in my opinion, is one of the best and funniest workouts to date. However, it only has 1,444 views.

So, why would one of my better videos have such low views?

Because EVERY fitness channel does a workout like that.

You will always find strength, cardio and bodyweight workouts on any YouTube fitness channel.

And with that much noise on YouTube it is harder to get heard when you’re a smaller channel.

I’m saving myself

Loving husband joined me this workout and I have to give him credit. He did pretty good considering the last time he was on a BOSU ball was about 12-15 years ago.

There were a few spastic moves, which will make you fall in love with him more, and some really bad looking lunges in the warm-up section.

He had an excuse though. He claims he was saving himself for the workout to come.

Uh uh.

30-Minute Full Body BOSU Ball Workout

About the BOSU ball

BOSU is pronounced “Bo,” like the boy’s name, and “Sue,” like the girl’s name. It was developed by athletic trainer David Weck in 2000.

The name BOSU started out from the acronym “Both Sides Up”, with it changing in the last few years to “Both Sides Utilized”.

I, personally, received a BOSU Ball certification in 2002 and have been working with it ever since.

While I don’t think you HAVE to one to achieve better fitness, it does offer a different element to a lot of exercises, and is kinda fun to use.
