Beginner Workout Routine

beginner workout routine

Hi Friends! I’ve been meaning to post this beginner workout routine for a while now. While most of the workouts on my YouTube channel offer modifications, not many of them are geared specifically towards new exercisers. It takes a lot of courage to start something new.  I love nothing more as a trainer than to […]

Friday Flex

Friday Flex

The light was just right in our bedroom, so I took a selfie to pump myself up. If a bikini and fluorescent lighting was involved, you can be sure I’d spare you the picture! Friday Flex. It’s a thing right? Group Fitness Today is bitter sweet as I will be teaching my last HIIT class at […]



I guess yesterday was National Dog Day, but we celebrate every day! Go hug your pup! Have you ever seen a 6-legged dog before? We got some great news this weekend and found a house (that we love) in Illinois! Now, the stress of moving is even more real to me. We have moved 3 times […]

Glutes and Guns CrossFit WOD

Bam! And, it’s Monday. That always happens doesn’t it? That’s about how I feel too, Jada! My dad has been teaching her the bitter beer face, and she pretty much delivers on command now! It’s pretty funny. See what I mean?! Also, this girl might turn into a watermelon. Cooper and Jada needed to burn off some […]

The More Things Change…

The more things change, the more they stay the same… What the heck that does mean anyway?!! Here’s what I know: as long as we have each other, we will be okay regardless of what changes we face. Not to get all sappy on you! Although, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous, anxious, and sad […]

Work It Wednesday

It’s been a whirlwind around here to say the least. However, we had the chance to get in a family workout, before taking a brief trip to Champaign, Illinois to house hunt. First, we had to warm up at the playground. Don’t you do that? Can we do it again, dad? We really wanted to get […]

How We Celebrate 6 Years!

Omaha farmer's market

Hope you all had a great weekend! We celebrated our 6 year anniversary on Saturday! We started the day off at the Omaha Farmer’s Market in the Old Market downtown. Cooper was the star of the show–everyone wanted to pet him! Jada was a close second. We met my parents there, and of course Jada […]


armbrust YMCA handstands

Happy Friday! It’s time to get a little GYM-nasty up in herrrrrre! How about these rock stars?! I decided to have a little fun with our group workout and add handstands. The girls are making them look easy, but they are NOT for beginners! I’m really going to miss training in Omaha. My “clients” have […]

Staying Fit for Her

Armbrust YMCA basketball

After a small group workout in the morning, I let Jada run free in the basketball court. Wide open spaces for fast, little legs! Then, her friend joined her for a game of HORSE. Loser had to do burpees! Of course, I’d like to think she will be a future athlete, but she might not […]

On the Go: Weekend Snapshots

We are on the go. Constantly. That’s what happens when you have a toddler moving at light speed. Poor Cooper can’t even keep up! So, we are all about keeping Jada active and entertained. For our sanity as well! And, we want her to have fun doing it too! After constant activity, it’s easy to […]
