Beachbody Myths (and facts!)

What do you think of when you hear “multilevel marketing (MLM)?” Do you think pyramid scam? Get rich quick scheme? Easy side business? There are a lot of misconceptions out there about these types of companies, and I want to clear up some of them. You probably already know that Beachbody is a MLM company. […]

A Quick (intense!) Cardio Workout

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I’m almost done with my Hammer and Chisel program! I’m so excited about the results I’ve been seeing. Lifting heavy has given me muscle definition and endurance that I never thought I’d have!   Some people have asked me about the lack of cardio in this […]

How I Became My Own Boss

I was never a super slim type girl; I was always running in soccer or in a permanent squat position in field hockey. […]

As a power vinyasa yoga teacher, I see people from all different fitness backgrounds. Cross fitters, runners, walkers, athletes, dancers, gym rats, cardio junkies.
