10-minute At Home End of Summer HIIT Workout

Posted September 12, 2014 in workout, HIIT, fitness and 6 more

I've been working out at home a lot more lately.

It started when I was teaching five fitness classes a week, and didn't have a ton of time for other workouts. But I realized that I liked the simplicity of getting in a workout in my living room. 

Sweating at home means I don't have to drive to the gym, I don't have to put on all my running gear or sunscreen and I can workout whenever I want! 

I created this super quick HIIT workout to get my heart pumping and strengthen muscles (this will work your core, legs and arms!).

Nebraska is getting hit with a second snow storm! (Remember when I got stuck in Lincoln last weekend?) And lots of other places around the country are also being hit with another round of snow.

If you're lucky enough to get to stay home from work for a snow day, I have the perfect workout for you. This workout can be done in your living room without any equipment!

Get your body ready for shoveling snow with this strength + cardio workout!

Fitness Made Fun!

Posted July 27, 2015 in Sweat Pink, Grokker, fitness and 5 more


Over the past couple of weeks, I've joined Sweat Pink in some fun Instagram challenges to promote their challenge to achieve #1MillionMinutes of movement this summer.

The challenge began on June 21, and I've been tracking my minutes of activity since then. I've also been participating in daily Instagram challenges with Sweat Pink. (Look for #1MillionMinutes in my posts.) Each week, Sweat Pink teams up with a healthy company on their Instagram challenge posts. They've teamed up with Puritan's Pride, Lorna Jane, and now Grokker.

This week's challenge is all about making fitness fun with Grokker.

I'm excited the challenge is with Grokker this week because I already use Grokker to workout at home! Last month, I posted a review of Grokker for FitFluential. I've been doing their yoga videos at home because there aren't many yoga classes that fit into my schedule.

5 Fat Burning Outdoor HIIT Workouts

Posted July 29, 2015 in workout, fitness, SweatPink and 6 more

For a little over a month, I've been leading outdoor bootcamp/HIIT workouts at our local Outdoor Fitness Pad.

I really just wanted to add some HIIT training into my exercise routine, and I wanted some accountability. So I asked the Facebook world if anyone would be interested in some free workouts. I received a pretty good response, and I started creating workouts. So far, I've had 2-7 people at each workout!

We meet at 6 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, and all of the workouts last about 30 minutes.

A calorie-torching workout that gives back - Life Equals Charity Boot Camp

Posted September 2, 2015 in Life Equals, supplements, workout and 8 more


*Life Equals offered to give away samples of their supplements to people who attended my morning boot camp. I'm a Life Equals Ambassador. When you make a purchase using my coupon code, I receive a commission. All opinions are my own!

I've been leading a morning HIIT-style boot camp since late June. I started the workouts because I wanted to add some high intensity interval training into my workout routine.

I'm not super motivated to workout on my own, so I asked the Facebook world who wanted to get out of bed before the sunrise for a free workout. Luckily, there were actually people who wanted to join me!

We've been meeting at the Yanney Park Outdoor Fitness Pad. So the workouts combine bodyweight movements with the machines that are available at the fitness pad. The workouts are always super sweaty, and I'm usually sore the day after!

Recently, Life Equals contacted me and asked if I would want to do a charity workout. I love the folks at Life Equals so I was immediately in!

Weekend Recap {Fourth of July Weekend 2016}

Posted July 5, 2016 in Weekend Recap, running, HIIT and 8 more

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! I took Friday off of work for a quick road trip with the BF, so I had an extra long holiday weekend. It was much needed!

I also started Meal Free July on Friday. I love challenges like this because it allows me to get creative in the kitchen. I made some delicious meals!

I tend to overshare in these recaps, so I tried to be more concise in this week's post! (it's so hard for me because I want to share everything!)

I started teaching HIIT workouts about a year and a half ago, and I've been obsessed ever since. HIIT is the perfect way to get your heart rate up, strengthen your muscles and burn a ton of calories.

I recently started teaching a core class once a week, and I typically incorporate Pilates and yoga movements and traditional abdominal exercises. But I wanted to take it up a notch and make the workout more intense.

So this core HIIT workout was born! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
