The quest to lose fat while gaining muscle is a common one. We all want things to be simplified, streamlined, and efficient. I mean, who doesn’t want to lose excess fat while also gaining the muscle that makes you look leaner and stronger, right? Can you lose fat and gain muscle at the same time? Some would argue that it can’t be done. Some say that because of the Law of Thermodynamics (you need to…

Many of the women who come to me for one-on-one and group coaching come to me with hormonal imbalances. Many of these imbalances are a result of overtraining. They’ve adopted the ‘all or nothing’ approach to their nutrition and fitness which has left their hormones wrecked and in much need of repair and rejuvenation.⁠ If there’s a will, there’s a way to for how to use exercise to reduce cortisol. Read on for details! What…

⁠If you’ve got a sec, I have a little story to tell… ⁠⠀ It all started last fall when Orangetheory moved to our town. I was already a fan of the workouts, and the location was 6 minutes from our house. It was an EASY decision to join! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I had always enjoyed a challenging, sweaty workout… the ones that leave your mind, body, and soul a little exhausted, so you just knew you…

Rewind to 6 years ago…⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I was 39 weeks pregnant with Quinn! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ And in looking at this photo… it’s funny to think how much my perspective on fitness has changed since becoming a mom and getting older. It’s not better or worse… it’s just different. ⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ We talk a lot about comparing ourselves to others, but what about comparing yourself to YOURSELF? ⁠⠀ It’s easy to fall into the trap of…

I hear it all the time… “I don’t want to get big. I just want to look toned.” ⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ Ladies, don’t let ‘toned’ become a substitute for STRONG. Yes, you can be strong and not look like a man! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ What you want is STRENGTH. If you want to change the way your body actually LOOKS (aka your body composition) you need MUSCLE on your body. You also need FOOD to build it….

A scary thing happens when you switch from a cardio-based workout routine to a strength training-based one.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ You (usually) gain weight.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Terrifying, right?!?⁠ ⁠⠀ As your body adjusts to the new routine and muscles are being activated in ways they never have before, you’ll likely see an increase on the scale. You might see an increase of 3-5 (maybe more) pounds.⁠⠀ The good news is that, even though the scale is going up,…

Right now, it’s ALL hard. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Working from home with kids is hard. ⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ Finding motivation to exercise is hard. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Eating vegetables everyday is hard. ⠀⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ Sleeping 8 hours per night is hard. ⠀⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ Choosing water over iced coffee is HARD. 😉 ⠀⁠⠀ I get it. I really, really, reallllllly do. I’m not always motivated to make the best choices for myself, especially during a pandemic when all I…

Today, we’re going to chat about some supplements that support recovery from overtraining syndrome. I told you all about how I fell into the overtraining rabbit hole when I was balancing writing a new book, managing a full client load, and working out at Orangetheory 4-5 times a week. We’re just about 3 months out from that, and I’m feeling so much better. I’ve lost some of the weight I gained, my skin cleared up, and…

Disruption is the enemy of good habits and good intentions. And if there’s one word to sum up what the Covid-19 crisis has done to everyday life, it’s disruption. This is the time you might need your fitness routine the most, both to keep your immune system strong and to stay sane. If the gym is closed, and you’re under a stay-at-home order, no problem. Here are 6 tips for taking your workout into your…

Maybe it’s even too cold to go outside or your kids are home. So. What. It is what it is. What are you going to do about it? ​ Accept and adjust. Maybe you can’t hit the weight rack…

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…

Hey there! I wanted to hop on here and talk about my recent experience with overtraining and why I quit Orangetheory. If you’ve been following along for a little bit, I’ve been kind of beating around the bush about it, just because I was trying to figure things out and what exactly was going on. I was also waiting to get some test results back. I want to preface this post by saying this is…

Did you know that many women are overtraining and don’t even know it? Maybe you’re one of them! Overtraining can cause many health issues, including weight gain…probably the exact opposite of a regular exerciser expects. Let’s explore. You: Overtraining In science-y terms, overtraining syndrome is an imbalance between training and recovery. What that means is that there is too much exercise (for you) at too high of an intensity (for you) without enough recovery time…
