3 Reasons to Never Skip a Sprint Day

So, I already explained in this post how tempting it is to skip your sprint day.  I mean really, it’s a rare breed who looks forward to going out and running as hard as they can for any distance! But here are 3 reasons why I personally never skip my BURSTClub Sprint Day when it pops up as the next workout of the day. 1. Sprints Are a Complete Body Workout The more lean muscle you build, the more fat your burn. 

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

I Lost 38 Pounds with BURSTClub

I am 5’8” and have always been considered “slim”.   However, as I grew older, had two boys, and the metabolism slowed, “slim” was not exactly accurate. While my height allowed me to carry some extra weight, I decided I had gotten a bit squishy and was ready to do something about it.   Just before the beginning of March 2014, I decided to try a specific inch loss plan, called Shaklee 180, and also BURSTClub workouts.  I loved the flexibility

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

Mommy New Year Healthy RESET

  Happy New Year!   Well, sort of…   Every year, I think of September as the “Mommy New Year.”  This is the time of year us moms have just crammed in our last family vacation, BBQ, and trip to the pool.  Then we sped off to Walmart or Target to fight our way through the gauntlet of school supply isles, trying to get everything on the list before the first day of school.  Those of us brave enough to venture out on tax-free weekend

When You’re Stuck, #ResetWithMe

Anytime someone chooses honesty and authenticity it’s risky.  Each of us have different “lenses” due to life experiences and/or faith that we evaluate others through.   Although being authentic and real may feel risky, but it’s far more satisfying and freeing to be “you” and let go of what others think you should be or need to be.   Many of us live under layers of fear, shame, and insecurity, exhausted with trying to cover up the ugly, imperfect parts of ourselves – it’s

How I Pushed Reset on my Fitness

8 months after my fourth baby (I’m holding my nephew in this picture) I was eating salads and running 5-10 miles a day.   But I was stuck…         …and frustrated.                   …and hurting.   Why weren’t all my efforts working this time?  After each baby I’d always just run and run and eventually I seemed to get back into shape.  But this time my body hurt…badly. Fibromyalgia, migraines, and pain became the daily norm.   Nathan and I went on a personal quest to discover

Where to Start with Women’s Health

I have found that smart exercise, a good diet of alive food, and proper supplementation can make it possible for you to sail through the seasons of womanhood without the all of the horrors.   Just because I am female doesn’t mean that my day has to be characterized by mood swings, cravings, PMS or menopause symptoms, breast cancer, and any other things that seem to be pinned on us women as part of our “lot” in life – simply because we

How to Curb Cravings

  A secret is defined as knowledge kept or reserved for the privileged or initiated.  I don’t like that definition very much when it comes to my hormones!  I want to be one of the privileged who are in the “know” and who possesses the insider secrets to such mysterious things.   Luckily, I am in the know.  And I want to share the secret to curbing your cravings once and for all.   I know because I’ve lived it.   Did you know that
