Your Excuse is Invalid

Your Excuse is Invalid

Got an excuse? I'm sure I can crush it faster than you can finish telling me it. EXCUSES ARE BULLSHIT. Don't like to run? DON'T RUN. Today there are over a million different things you can do to get in shape for every fitness level, and every body type. Get to work, and get moving.

Head over to well + GOOD today to hear how myself and some of my fitness friends transform our workouts for the summer. You guy's already know how into Sandbag training I am, but there are so many other awesome ways to increase your fitness AND your vitamin D levels in the summer.  Outdoor runs, bootcamp in the park, swims at the local pool (or ocean!), yoga on the rooftop...get out there, and get sweating.

PMS Abs...yes you read that right.

PMS Abs...yes you read that right.

It's that time of month and you want to die. Sorry boys, skip to 2:27 if you don't want the girl talk. But all you ladies know what I'm talking about. You're bloated, uncomfortable, and don't want to leave your house. This is a quick follow-along ab workout that won't make you want to vomit any more than you already do. When you get over the hump, pair this workout with high intensity cardio/high intensity interval training (HIIT) for a total body workout.

Rehab Workout: Knee Stabilizing Moves

Today I sit down to discuss one of the most frequent video requests I get: rehabilitation workouts.  My badass co-worker, Laura Crago, is currently in recovery from a DOUBLE knee surgery.  But that doesn’t stop her from getting her workouts in.  She’s making the best of it, and blogging her entire experience.  Check out her blog here.  Laura shares her favorite moves for rehabbing them ol’ knees!

Tuesday Turn-On: SXSW Picks

South By South West (SXSW), a music conference originally intended to feature local musicians and unsigned artists, has now turned into a corporate sponsored week-long party.  This year is bigger than ever, thanks to the iTunes festival, Lady Gaga and secret shows by JBeibs.  It's hard to sift through the hype and find up&coming acts on their grind, driving broken-down vans, schlepping their own equipment and promoting their music over youtube and soundcloud pages.  I happen to know a few incredibly talented artists fitting just this description, thus I present you with my "SouthBy" picks of 2014.

Enjoy the party and be safe, kids! xx

New video day! As you know, I just completed a cross-country road trip.  Spending hours in the car isn't really a fitness geeks idea of fun. So I planned a workout in every place we stopped.  I got to try out new things, check out trending studios, and spend my driving days sore and satisfied.  Here's the first video from the road featuring... NASHVILLE where I got one to try one of my all-time favorite classes at The Hotbox. So watch the video and follow along the NonStop tour...
