Electrolyte Powder: Is It Part of Your Workout Routine?

A few years ago, I was on route to a weekend spin class and on a whim, decided to pop into a supplement store and take a look around. When I saw their wall of electrolytes products I became curious. As an adult, I had never consistently used electrolyte powder or energy drinks as part of my workout routine (remember when drinking Gatorade as a sporty teenager was a thing?!) I ended up picking up an electrolyte sample packet to see if it would make any difference in my performance on the bike.

Macros: Do you Track Them?

Back in December, I started a new at-home workout program that is done in tandem with a macro-timed nutrition plan. Not only was I new to a structured workout program (hello, COVID life) but I had never tracked my macros, or calories for that matter, before. I’m now more than halfway through the 13-week program and I have seen many wonderful changes in both my performance and overall health. It’s like a completely new way of living and eating and I can’t stop telling all my friends about it.

Group Fitness: Energetic Connection And What I Miss The Most

A few weeks ago, I drove to Virginia to attend my first hot yoga class in over a year! Wild, right? Prior to COVID-19, I would typically do yoga a handful of times during the month and there was definitely a couple of hard seasons where hot yoga was my salvation 5 times a week. After getting in 6o-minutes of stretching and sweating alongside – distant and masked – strangers, I was flooded with pure love and appreciation for the powerful, energetic union that is group fitness.

Vacation Workouts and The 5 Things I Always Pack

Do you workout on vacation? It may sound strange, but it’s one of the things I most look forward to when taking a trip. When I’m on vacation I generally feel energized (sayonara, work!) and have more time to gently enter the day before jumping into my morning workout. My husband and I have a few upcoming trips that I need to start packing for which inspired me to share with you my exercise mindset when vacationing and the 5 workout essentials I always pack with me when travelling.

5 Reasons to Ditch The Gym Forever and Start Working Out at Home

I used to be the type of person who only worked out at the gym or fancy and expensive workout studios. Then COVID-19 happened, and well, we were all forced to adjust our workout routine. I remember researching online for possible solutions when I saw an ad for Beachbody on Demand. Full disclosure: I had serious reservations. I didn’t think it was possible to get in a decent workout from my living room with a few dumbbells. Now almost a full year of exclusively doing at home workouts (aside from running or cycling outside), I can confidently say I won’t ever go back to the gym full-time. This new way of working out has completely changed my mindset around what I can achieve fitness-wise from the comfort of my own home.
