1-Minute Inspiration

I don’t know about you guys, but when I first saw this commercial by Reebok, I was instantly jazzed. Insta-jazzed, if you will. Anyway, I hope this commercial also pumps you up a bit too. Plus, whenever you have friends or family asking why you’re changing your diet and exercising at crazy hours in the morning, you can just send […]

Run. Burpees. Run.

The weather is gorgeous outside. It is FINALLY cooling down a little outside, but in Florida is only lasts for a few days (or hours) so you need to take advantage of it ASAP.

What’s great about this situation is that you can basically trick persuade them to exercise with you by pitching it as a gameHey guys come here, I have this really fun game!

Tonight we did “animal races” (bear crawl, crab walk, and ape walk), then set up an “obstacle course” (box jumps) and had a “hold-it competition” (planks, wall sits, bridges). If you have kids, or are hanging out with some, you can still get that workout in and have them tag along!JUMP!And I will have you know that I won all most of the races!
Okay, so maybe I was beat by an 8-year-old… but I totally let him win! 😛
