Happy New Year, friends! Welcome to 2017! Let’s cheers (via kettlebell mug) to the best year yet! 🙂kettlebell mug

I heard a rumor (from my 2017 Reader Survey) that you guys enjoy my weekly workout recaps because they give you ideas and motivation for your own sweat sessions, so I decided to bring them back. And I figured since today is January 1st and you might have a fitness-related resolution for the new year, I would publish it a day early. There are 3 awesome (i.e. hard!) workouts included, and I hope they’re just what you need for a fit week of workouts. Happy sweating! 🙂


MONDAY: CrossFit

Quad Burner CrossFit Workout

Holy cow, this workout killed my quads… and lungs. It was a good one for sure!





Oh, how I missed KFIT. So glad I was able to join the KFIT crew for this workout. I miss those ladies! FYI: 90-second hill heavy is on a spin bike.

THURDAY: Orangetheory


Guys, I friggin’ love Orangetheory and “dragged” Mal there last week to try it with me. He really liked it, too! My gosh, Orangetheory is such an amazing workout. It involves treadmill intervals (running or walking), rowing, free weights, TRX, BOSU, and more. Love, love, love!

FYI: My favorite workout tank (pictured above – I have it in 3 different colors) is on sale for just $21 right now! I love it because it’s one of those tops that you don’t have to think about. It’s comfy and just stays put!



Partner Workout from Salt Shack CrossFit

My friend Marisa and I teamed up for this workout at Salt Shack and finished in about 22 minutes. It was a great Saturday sweat session!

Question of the Day

Here’s my plan:

  • Monday: CrossFit
  • Tuesday: Off
  • Wednesday: KFIT or CrossFit – depends on the workout (I’m trying to do more endurance workouts)

  • Friday: CrossFit
  • Saturday: CrossFit

P.S. Athleta is having their semi-annual sale right now AND you can save an extra 20% online with code EXTRA20!



  1. Sunday (today)-13 mile run
    Monday-45 minutes elliptical + weights-upper body
    Tuesday-45 minutes run + weights-legs
    Wednesday-45 minutes elliptical
    Thursday-45 minutes run + weights-upper body
    Saturday-1 hour run+ weights-legs

    Happy new year!

  2. About six months ago I switched from CrossFit to OrangeTheory and love it. I personally enjoy more cardio and less barbell/oly lifting so when I found OTF it was a perfect fit.

  3. I’ve been doing total body workouts M,W,F and light cardio Th,F,Sat and yoga or rest on Sun. So far this schedule works for me but sometimes I wonder if I should break up my strength workouts and focus on just 2 or 3 muscle groups a day.

    Are you still on snapchat? I was following you but I haven’t seen any snaps for awhile.

  4. Hey!! love the post definitely gives me ideas on things I can do in the gym!!

  5. Hello Tina, love this post!

    My 2017 resolution is to run more. Here’s my plan (and record) for this week that’s already half way through:

    Monday: Ran 3 miles
    Tuesday: 90 decline situps for the abs
    Wednesday: ran 3.5 miles
    Thursday: 90 decline situps for the abs
    Friday: run 3 miles
    Saturday: off
    Sunday: off
