One of my friends—she just happens to be my fittest friend—recently asked me for some workout motivation. She started a new job, so her workout routine changed from a group/class setting to working out mostly on her own. She’s usually the one who motivates ME, but I know how it goes. Life changes. Priorities change (i.e. babies). Hell, sometimes you just lose your fitness spark. I absolutely love exercise, and I’ve found myself there a number of…

Hi, friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was busy, but fun with a lot of quality family time – my favorite type of weekends! 🙂 On Saturday, Quinn had soccer and then we went to CrossFit. It was a partner workout, so we got to work out with some friends, and it made me miss CrossFit so much. I swear, there’s nothing like it! I actually even DANCED during the workout because…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Last week’s edition of CNC Instagram Live included all sorts of questions from you guys via the “Ask me a question” feature on Instagram – thank you to those of you submitted one! I hope you guys find my responses helpful. If you missed the 24 hour replay of this IG Live, here it is for your viewing pleasure! 🙂 In this episode, I…

Hi, guys! On Saturday at CrossFit, we did a special hero workout for a local police officer, who recently died during a shooting in Weymouth. It was truly tragic and hit home hard for the Salt Shack community as well as those in the surrounding towns. Officer Chesna actually lived in Hanover (where we live) with his family. He was just 42 years old and married with two young children (9 and 4 years old)….

Hi, friends! I get soooo many questions about which sneakers I wear for which kinds of workouts, so I thought it would be helpful to put my all-time favorites in one blog post for you guys!  As you’ve seen on CNC over the years, I like to keep things fresh (and fun!) when it comes to my workouts. Recently, I love switching between running, CrossFit, and Orangetheory workouts, and I’ve learned that it’s important to…

Hi, guys! If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed a bit less CrossFit in my Stories. I know. It’s a big change for me. CrossFit is so, so, so fun, and I would do it everyday if my body could handle it. But, sadly, it cannot. So, I’ve decided to cut back and deal with some pretty bad muscle imbalances (due to scoliosis) and nagging injuries (due to old age). I recently…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a nice Easter. I have a recap of ours coming soon, but I wanted to share my workouts from last week as well as some of the delicious eats that I enjoyed. I’m glad I’ve finally got into a groove again with my workouts, and I’m finally feeling back to my old self again. As far as my eats go, I dined out quite a…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a nice weekend! 🙂 Another week of fitness & eats is in the books! Last week was actually kind of a weird week on the workout front. I was active just about every day, but quite a few of my workouts were pretty low-key and not too challenging, which I actually appreciate nowadays. I used to get annoyed if the workout was too “easy” or…

Hello! My name is Katie Lyn. I am a writer over at Garage Gym Power. I am also a mom, a woman and an athlete. I am honored to be given the opportunity to write this guest post for Tina. I learned about Tina’s blog at the suggestion of a friend, and was happy to discover a like minded blogger with a lot of great recipes and an interesting CrossFit journey to share. This topic…

If you guys follow me on Instagram Stories, you’ve probably seen me post the WOD (aka “Workout of the Day”) from my CrossFit – and you might be thinking: What the heck does that mean?! I’m going to explain a recent workout that was “prescribed” and how to modify it so you can do it at home or another gym with just some dumbbells. Check out my video below!

Hi, guys! Just wanted to pop in and share some highlights from my trip to Austin last week as well as some healthy travel tips you might not have tried yet. I think most of us are familiar with the common ones, like pack nutritious snacks or wear your sneakers, but I rounded up a few that I recently started doing that maybe you haven’t heard. If you think they sound like ideas that would…

With Christmas just days away, I wanted to share some tips for finding the right CrossFit gym – just in case you’re planning a drop-in while you’re away from home. I love to travel and I love CrossFit, so I try my best to get a WOD in when I’m on the go. Some people are restaurant people; I’m a gym person. But part of the fun of CrossFit is the community, so I try to…

I’ve partnered with Nike to bring you this holiday gift guide. As always, thank you for supporting CNC!  As you guys know, I’m a huge fan of online shopping, especially when it comes to the holidays. Dealing with the craziness of shopping in-store is just not my cup of tea, so I put together a little gift guide for fitness and athleisure lovers – a subject that I know quite well – that you can use to shop…

Is there anything better in life than a pair of good black leggings? You know, the kind you say that are for working out, but they’re also for sitting on your couch in a hoodie and fuzzy socks. (You know you do it too!) Every time I go shopping for workout clothes, I tell myself not to buy another pair of black workout leggings. And just about every time I go shopping for workout clothes……
