    Spurred by a coworker at a Christmas party, Sandy joined women’s fitness boot camp with a less than eager attitude. “It was just the worst thing I’d ever done!” she says referring to how she felt after her first session. “I mean, I’d worked out before, but nothing nearly as intense. Amy didn’t go easy…

    As my Boot Campers will attest, I’m a huge fan of the 5:30am workout. It gets the metabolism pumping, the endorphins activated and builds strength while you’re still sleepy   But, did you know that bootcamp before breakfast burns more fat?

    Comments Off on Video: Side Plank

    Side plank is one of my favorite core exercises! It engages everything in your abdominal structure, but unlike many abs exercises, it is really quite difficult to engage, and potentially strain your lower back. You should NEVER feel a lot of pressure in your lower back when you are performing any abdominal exercise.

    I’ve been running in the Xterra trail runs at Kualoa Ranch for a few years now, but this year I decided to step it up and actually go for the full 21K course. One of the things I really like about this event, other than it’s drop dead gorgeous scenery, of course, is that there…

      It is hot! And I have no AC.. And my ceiling fan had died. Which means I am definitely not turning on the oven, and even the stove top can be unpleasant. Luckily for me, it’s zucchini season, and I’ve been mixing up a ton of zucchini “pastas,” or raw salads, if you’d rather…
