Results from 30 Days of CORE DE FORCE!

You guys! By the end of February, my 2017 Simply Fit Group has already completed our 2nd program of the year! How awesome is that! 

It's so easy to start a program and not finish it. I am so guilty of that, but having a group that I'm doing it with has pushed me to work hard and finish strong! So...let me tell you about our latest program! 

Core de Force is the MMA, Kickboxing style workout! It came out in November 2016, so this was my first time trying it. But as a past lover of Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire, this spoke my workout love language for sure! Something about those hard kicks, and punches....I can really get into them! 

Plus as I'm doing it I can literally feel my core getting stronger which I love! Because if I haven't told you, one of my goals is to be able to see my abs this year! (I'm sure I'll get pregnant shortly after I hit this goal...but hey, it's that mom life right! pregnant, work to get fit, pregnant...and so on!)

So, if you are interested in seeing my results, click the tab below! 

Honestly, I was so shocked! I don't have a ton of weight to lose, but after baby #2, there's lots of toning that needs to happen. So I taking before and after pictures to compare really helped me to notice changes in my body! I am so thankful for that! 

Now, if you are ready to complete a program this year, join me for my SPRING IS COMING BOOT CAMP that starts on March 20th! Sign up to get more details below!

Friday 5 Fave Workouts 2.04.17

It's the last Friday 5 Fave Workouts!!! I hope you have been taking advantage of these workouts and utilizing the HIIT format to maximize your results in less time! 

Remember, push yourself to the max! And utilize the workouts from the past several weeks that I've shared! Switch them out, and you've got some great workouts to get you started! 

I hear it a lot from women that they go to the gym and don't know what to do..."I feel lost" they say. So they end up back on the treadmill, which can only do so much! Add resistance, add weights, add energy bursts like what you find in these HIIT movements, and you will see results! 

Here's this week's workout, and remember, snag a Kamagon Ball from Hedstrom Fitness for 25% OFF with code: SPHF25 it's good until the last day of February! 

HIIT Workout do these movements over and over for 12 minutes! 

Do these moves with the maximum amount of energy! It's a short workout, but when done the right way (ending fully out of breath, not being able to form a sentence), you will see results and your body burning fat for up to 24 hours after the workout! 

  • Standing Oblique Twists (20 each side)
  • Sumo Squats with overhead press 15
  • Sit ups (30) 
  • Lunge with a press (15 each side)
  • Skater Lunges (15 each side)

Happy Sweating!

Friday 5 Fave Workouts 01.13.17

Here's what happens on the weekend. Things get either busy, or lazy. We are enjoying time with family, going out with friends, or maybe traveling, and usually all our healthy eating and working out efforts are out the window! 

That's why for the next several weeks I'm going to be sharing Friday 5 Fave Workouts with you! Things that you can do with just a little weight at home, at someone else's house, or in a hotel! You don't have to go to the gym, or take a ton of your time to do it! Just do these simple moves to keep you moving, and hopefully having worked out will encourage you to continue making smart choices when it comes to filling your plate! 

So to start it off, here's the moves for this weekend! We will be utilizing the Kamagon Ball from Hedstrom Fitness for these workouts. The Kamagon ball is a pretty amazing piece of equipment because it's filled with water, (and you can choose which weight you would like it to be at). For these exercises I'm using it at 10lbs. This use of water in equipment is called Hydro-Inertia. "The efficiency of Hydro-intertia resistance mimics real life situations far more than do static weights such as dumbbells. This is not only important for athletes in their functional training programs, but also helps every day functionality like picking up children."

Here's the written workout. Watch the video below for how each movement is done! 

Make it a HIIT workout by doing the moves back to back with only a 1 minute break between. 

  • 15 Squats with overhead press
  • 10 Reverse lunge with oblique twists (on each side)
  • 15 V-ups
  • 15 Bent over rows
  • 15 Bicep Curls

Rest & Repeat up to 5 times

Join me January 16-20 in a #IAmEmpowered Instagram Challenge with Hedstrom Fitness & Fit Approach! Have fun, get inspired, and win prizes! Follow Me

2017 Simply Fit Group!

Tomorrow starts a new year! 

Have you taken time to reflect on 2016? Have you thought about what you want to do differently in the new year? 

I recently heard a quote that said...

You don't get wise from experience. You get wise from reflecting on your experiences.

Basically, you can experience so many things in life, but if you don't time time to reflect on them and change your future experiences, then really you gain no wisdom. So don't just roll into the new year without thinking about the past. 

Take time to reflect on this past year...what things were good, what things weren't so good? Where did you fail, where did you succeed? Then, make a plan to move forward and do better! To make changes where you need to, and keep things the same where you need to! 

NOW, as far as your health and fitness goes...if you are tired of starting each new year with motivation to do better, just to fall off the wagon and fail at your efforts in a few short weeks, I'm here to tell you I have a new plan to help you succeed. 

Really it's not your fault that you continually fail. The problem is, you have unhealthy habits that you have held onto for YEARS. Then when you start a new program or plan and create new habits that go well and get results for a few weeks, you slowly stop being as on top of things and strict. You think..."OH I'VE GOT THIS." and you loosen the reigns. Well I'm hear to tell you, it takes longer than 6 weeks for those healthy habits to be stronger than the old, unhealthy ones you've walked in for years! 

That's why I've created the 2017 SIMPLY FIT GROUP! 

A year long program for women that are ready to transform their lives and create long term, healthy habits! Here's what you get with the year long program! 

For the 2017 Simply Fit Group we will be utilizing the brand new Beachbody on Demand all access membership! 

For a one time payment of $199 you get: 
-all access to Beachbody workouts (over $6,000 of workouts)
-access to all of the brand new 2017 workouts that are launched
-30 day supply of your choice of Shakeology flavor
-portion control containers
-become a member of my year long, 2017 Simply Fit Group
* I will provide a one-on-one call when you sign up, ongoing support and coaching, sharing recipes and fitness tips, creating workout challenges throughout the year to keep you on target and motivated, providing incentives and contests to get you to your goals, plus get set up with an accountability partner, and have the constant support of other members!

 

And when you sign up by midnight January 1st, you will get this cute necklace as a gift from me!

 

So who is ready to crush their goals in 2017? Join me for the 2017 Simply Fit Group and get the tools that you need, plus the long-term support that you have been missing to have a transformational year!

12 Days of Family Fitmas

It's December....the most WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! 

So why does it seem like this time of year can be the most stressful....frustrating....devastating.....and neglectful time of year. 

This time of year has such pure joy wrapped around it, and yet we let busyness of parties, pressure of having the perfectly decorated home and most decadent apple pie, not to mention the financial stress of  buying our kids all the gifts get us down. We get distracted, neglect ourselves, and forget about the joy that is involved in Christmas! 

That's why I've teamed up with some AMAZING ladies to to host the FREE 12 Days of Family Fitmas! 

That's right...I said FREE! 

So what all does it entail? 

  1. It's risk free! Because it's FREE! 
  2. 12 days of different styles, and challenging workouts for you to stay fit during the holidays, so you don't have to feel guilty for enjoying your favorite holiday snack on Christmas Eve....and maybe Christmas Day too! 
  3. 12 days of fun activities to do with the kids! That's right, we are challenging each other to refocus this holiday season! These will be simple activities that you can do with the kids. Some of them will be about giving back to others, while some activities will be all about separating yourself from the hustle and bustle of the holidays and enjoying time together! 
  4. An amazing accountability group! It's a proven fact that you stick to things when you are kept accountable! So we will be creating a Facebook group where we are asking you to check in daily! We want you to post fun photos of you and your kids taking part in the activities! Share sweetie selfies! and more!

The #BOSUStrong Countdown Workout

It's Monday! That means it's time to sweat and get our heart rate going!!!! What better way to start off your week!  So today I'm sharing The #BOSUStrong Countdown Workout!

It's a butt kicking, sweat dripping, heart beating kind of workout! One that will make you feel good, and worn out at the end of it! 

Which I have realized that mainly every single workout that I do with the BOSU leaves me feeling that way! The BOSU really takes your workouts up a notch, and makes them even more intense than they were before! I am so glad I have one and am able to use it to workout at home. 

You can get your own Bosu Balance Trainer, and when you do, enter the code “BOSUSWEATPINK15” to get the BOSU Total Body Basics & BOSU Core Basics DVDs free.

Here's how it works! You can do the moves with or without a Bosu, but let me just say, if you have a Bosu, it adds so much more intensity!
