New Routine: How I’m fitting in my workouts

It’s a new routine, new beginnings, and a whole lot of chaos. I recently started a new job that I’m really excited about! As if we haven’t had enough change in our household lately with our move, buying a house, my husband starting a new job, and taking care of our little girl! I’m in my second week and it’s funny that I actually feel more organized now that I’m back at work and not staying at home with Ady….

Buying a Treadmill for your Home

For a really long time, I have wanted my own treadmill.  Like a really long time.  Just ask my husband.  He’s heard about it… a lot. So when we left our condo in the city and moved into a house, I knew this was my chance to get one!  The only problem was that I didn’t know what to get.  So I began my research.  I thought it might be helpful to write about what I found along the way…

New favorite drink: discount included!

Hydration is such a huge part of living a healthy lifestyle.  It’s a necessary component to staying healthy, fueling a workout before and after, and helping you feel (and work) your best. I get asked about hydration a lot.  Friends of mine don’t know what they should be drinking before, during, and after workouts.  I also hear many people complain that water is boring.  While I don’t agree with that necessarily, I can understand where they are coming from. There…

Another type of barre experience: Flybarre

I have been loving the barre classes lately as I’m sure you learned from my last post.  They are such a great exercise to incorporate into my running.  And as I mentioned, they are all so different so don’t get discouraged if you try one barre class and don’t like it.  Keep trying them and I’m sure you will find one you enjoy! The most recent one I tried was Flybarre.  You might have heard of Flywheel which I actually…

Not all barre is created equal

I have wanted to try barre classes for a long time.  I was a dancer growing up (primarily ballet to be exact) and just the mention of “barre” made me a little giddy again.  Although my point shoes and tutu were long ago retired I figured I just had to try this out and see what it was like. I am glad I tried out so many different barre studios because as the title of this post points out: not…

Got 20 minutes? Try this Hills and Sprints Treadmill workout!

It’s that time of year where as winter settles in we spend more time indoors and of course, on the treadmill.  While I am willing to run in fairly cold weather, I draw the line below 30 degrees.  It’s just not fun. So the other day I headed to the gym determined to get a good workout.  I had limited time but wanted something that would keep me interested, challenge me, and make the time go fast. I came up…
