Favorites Friday

It’s been a long time since there’s been a fitness related post around here. Mostly because I just started a new job with a huge training time commitment. Which means I’m barely fitting in my own physical activity whenever I can and when I do I’m relying on old regimens to get me through as… Continue reading Favorites Friday

Beachbody Hybrid Workout Schedule

In a month I’ll be starting a new job that’s going to require a pretty intense training schedule initially and I’m not exactly sure when I’ll be able to fit in exercise. I’m a little worried about that because, hello spring and soon, summer! I have some leaning-up I need to do before I would… Continue reading Beachbody Hybrid Workout Schedule

Core de Force: A Review

Who’s excited for another Beachbody workout program review?

22 Minutes Hard Corps: Why I didn’t finish

You may remember I started this program nearly 6 months ago and then never updated about my progress after the first week. And that’s because I never finished. This is honestly the first workout program I didn’t complete start-to-finish. Though I am somewhat upset with myself for not sticking it out, I quit for reasons… Continue reading 22 Minutes Hard Corps: Why I didn’t finish

22 Minute Hard Corps: Let’s Get Started

Complacency really isn’t my thing, as far as fitness is concerned. I finished my 4 Week Beachbody Hybrid about two weeks ago (my results were so great – dropped 4lbs and toned abs, arms, shoulders, and thighs!) and I considered just doing that again but I’ve had 22 Minute Hard Corps sitting around since my… Continue reading 22 Minute Hard Corps: Let’s Get Started

4- Week Beachbody Hybrid Exercise Schedule

Do I even need to say it? Summer is coming. Disregard the bipolar weather (I mean seriously, 70 degrees one day, snow and hail the next. Whatever). I won’t spend too much time harping on the unfortunate and yet also lovely idea that bathing suits will soon be a wardrobe staple. But it’s the truth.… Continue reading 4- Week Beachbody Hybrid Exercise Schedule
