Step-up Exercise

Step-up Exercise

Reshape your hips, butt and thighs with this exercise. You don’t have to wait until you get to the gym, you can do them outside on any step. You can use a bench, fitness platform or stairs, basically anything that is lower than a chair.

Step up is a great lower body blast. Not only your muscles  will be activated, but also your entire cardiovascular system will be challenged, and that means you’ll burn more calories.

Take Time For Yourself

Take Time For Yourself

“When we take the time to re-connect with ourselves, replace our fears with trust, and learn to let go of the things we cannot control, this is taking care.

When we listen to our intuition, embrace all of our imperfections, and stay authentic to who we are, this is taking care.

When we ground ourselves in the present and make mental space to find clarity, this is taking care.

When we discover our interior barriers and find courage to dissolve them, this is taking care.

When we learn to be gentle with ourselves, this is truly taking care.

Be gentle with yourself and keep peace in your soul.

Eat Wise, Drop a Size

Eat Wise, Drop a Size

If you want to get the most out of your workout,  then you mustn’t skip meals. The food you eat before your workout will prepare your body for a strenuous workout and maximize your effort and results. On the other hand, a healthy post meal will refuel your body and  aid in recovery after a hard workout.  Remember that healthy weight loss takes place in the gym and the kitchen.

Squat And Get a Hot Butt

Squat And Get a Hot Butt

“Down the road, in a gym far away
A young man was heard to say,
“No matter what I do, my legs won’t grow!”
He tried leg extensions, leg curls, leg presses too.
Trying to cheat, these sissy workouts he’d do!
From the corner of the gym where the big guys train,
Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain,
Where the big iron rides high, and threaten lives,
Where the noise is made with big forty-fives,
A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees,
A very big man with legs like trees,
Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack,
Chalked his hands and monstrous back,
Said, “Boy, stop lying and don’t say you’ve forgotten!”
Trouble with you is you ain’t been SQUATTIN’!”

Be Happy Even if Things Aren’t Perfect Now

 Be Happy Even if Things Aren't Perfect Now

“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means youve decided to look beyond the imperfections.” – Unknown

Don’t Think Just Do It

Don't Think Just Do It

“Just Do It’ is exactly what you need to hear when you’re in a moment of doubt. When you’re struggling, especially with sport… just do it. Stop talking about it, stop complaining about the cellulite, or that you’re not able to run fast enough for the bus… just do it.” -
Jessie J


Sometimes we just need to hear…DON’T THINK ABOUT IT, JUST DO IT! :)

Kettlebell Squat Jerk Exercise

Kettlebell Squat Jerk Exercise

“One of the main kettlebell benefits is that it’s an effective, efficient workoutof cardio and strength training in one.” – Sarah Lurie, author of the new book Kettlebells for Dummies

Kettlebells may look a little bit scary if you’re a beginner, but don’t get intimidated. Start with  a light weight and keep your first workout to 10 to 20 minutes.  Personally, I like working out with a kattlebell because my body has to work harder to maintain balance. This  means you work many different muscle groups and get your heart rate up at the same time.
