Get Rid of Exercise Excuses Once and for All

  Excuses.   We all make them.  In the moment, we convince ourselves that our excuse is a really good ‘reason’.  But all-too-often, these reasons are just attempts at explaining or justifying our choice to avoid responsibility.   When it comes to exercise, there seem to be 3 main excuses that hinder us from achieving the level of fitness we need and desire:   Not enough time. Not enough energy. Not enough motivation.   Burst training with BURSTClub effectively removes the obstacle of these 3 excuses. 

Chronic Sciatic Pain Gone with BURSTClub

In the past 10 years I’ve had four large babies (as much as 10.5 lbs!), and with each pregnancy I had terrible sciatic nerve pain and SPD (Pubis Symphysis Dysfunction) that lasted longer and hurt worse until my 4th pregnancy when it took up permanent residence.   Every exercise program and activity I’ve tried over the years would leave me in excruciating pain for a week.  I tried everything from Pilates to weight-lifting to Zumba and would have to

The Number One Exercise to Burn Fat

  Is there really just one exercise that can give you all the fat-burning benefits you desire?   Well…almost.   It’s called a sprint. (I can hear you groaning now!)  Don’t check out or think, “Whelp, that does it for me. I can’t sprint so I’m not even bothering to read this.”   If that’s you, hang with me for some options to make sprinting more “doable.”   Sprinting is the ULTIMATE  exercise to position your body to burn more fat throughout the day.  It’s also great to

One Trick to Making Commitment Stick

Commitment…can be a scary word. We tend to associate it with failure…times when we said we were going to do something, but then neglected to follow through with it.   At the heart of any success that has ever been achieved is a resolve or commitment to do it.   We often set ourselves up for failure right from the start because of three little words:   “I’ll try it.”   Did you know that the definition of try is “an attempt to fail”?  Scientists

Power Comes from Process, Not Perfection

I feel like I go through phases where I hit a little rut, come out, then hit a rut again.  And that process drives me crazy.   Do you ever feel that way?   I’d rather hit the high and never come off of it.  Oh, if only.   For so long I would beat myself up about the rut part of the process, but I’m realizing more and more it comes down to this simple truth…   We aren’t perfect.  Life (including our fitness) is a journey

Are You Tired of the Treadmill?

Do you ever wonder why the hours you spend exercising are not producing more results?   Have you ever experienced getting some results and then you hit a serious plateau? Maybe you’ve given up on exercise altogether because you simply don’t have the time. And if we’re honest, who wants to invest time into something that doesn’t seem to be working anyway?   Deep down, most of us want to have bodies that work—bodies that burn fat properly, have good metabolisms, and that feel

10 Tips to Lose Weight & Pulverize the Plateau

You looked in the mirror today and the thought ran through your head, “Man I really need to trim down around the edges.”   Maybe you’ve been hitting the gym extra hard lately or you’ve stayed consistent with your BURSTClub workouts but for some reason, you just aren’t seeing the results you want.   So what can you do?   You probably know a handful of things you could do, but I’m talking about doing things that are healthy and can be maintained over a lifetime. 

How Many Calories Are Burned After Exercise?

Did you know that an effective workout can continue to burn calories long after your workout is complete?  Notice I said, “Effective.”  There are many types of workouts you can do but some have been proven to create a bigger “after-burn” than others, largely due to the intensity of the exercise and the amount of recovery required by the body.   That is why we love burst training so much.  It is efficient with your time, yet extremely effective at creating a

5 Ways to Get Your Kids to Exercise

  The habits we instill in our kids carry  with them throughout their life.  When they become adults, either they will have to fight to undue bad habits that have been instilled in them or they will look back and thank you for the foundation that has been laid in their life.  It’s never too late to start encouraging good health and fitness habits…no matter how old your kids are.      5 Ways to Get Your Kids to Exercise   1.

Workout Harder and Smarter to Lose Weight Fast

If you have been working out consistently and aren’t seeing the results that you want, I think I may know the reason.   For too long we have been told to get into our “fat burning zone” while we work out.  In order to burn fat while we work out we are told to go at least 20-30 minutes as a steady pace.  In other words, do cardio.   But if you are working out 20-60 minutes a day on average and burning all
