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…

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…

When it’s Okay to skip that Workout

The other week, I was on a roll with everything going on at the moment.  I had dinners prepared almost every night, had worked out almost every day, done chores around the house, done some stuff for my blog, and gotten some sleep (as much as you can get with a 4 month old). Then… my husband got sick and my daughter decided she wanted to wake up every couple of hours to eat at night.  For a week.  So…

Want to attend almost every gym in your city? Welcome to ClassPass.

Doing the same workout over and over can get boring.  Even though I love running, I still have days where I want to work out but just need to do something else.  It’s also important to do this for our bodies.  We should work multiple muscle groups to gain a great overall total fitness level. Well there just might be a great solution to this! I was recently contacted by someone at ClassPass to try out what they are doing. …

Create Your Own Gym

One of the biggest challenges, if not the biggest, with getting in a workout is time.  It’s the top excuse people have for not incorporating exercise into their life.  I know life is busy.  It just seems like things are non-stop some days and there just aren’t enough hours in the day. So what if you can squeeze in a quick workout at home?  What if you have 15, 20, maybe even 30 extra minutes where you can get in…

A Health Lesson: From Children

For any of you who have children, nephews, nieces, friends with babies, have babysat, etc. you probably know that children are on a pretty solid routine.  They get up around the same time every day, eat at the same time, get tired and need naps at the same time, you get the point.  What happens when they get off their routine?  Well, I hear things can get ugly. Thinking further about this, I realized those sweet little poop machines are…
