Weekly Workout: Heads or Tails

Working out should be fun! I do love a session that is focused on building strength or endurance, and they are a pretty big staple for me. But every once in a while though, I like to do a more “fun” workout that isn’t hard and heavy. So I created one that involves a bit of chance! Continue reading “Weekly Workout: Heads or Tails”


Weekly Workout: Coordination Workout!

It’s back! Another Weekly Workout! (Well, it’s more like monthly or bi-monthly now…)

Today’s workout focus is all about coordination and balance. Continue reading “Weekly Workout: Coordination Workout!”

Weekly Workout: AMRAP Video Workout

If you ever felt like you needed a bit more of a challenge from your workouts, always feel like you only have 15 minutes a day to exercise or are at least somewhat competitive, then I have a workout for you! Continue reading “Weekly Workout: AMRAP Video Workout”

Weekly Workout: One Weight Full Body Workout

It’s been a while, but here is a new weekly workout! It’s short, intense, but fun! (But maybe that’s the personal trainer in me talking.) All you need is one weight (I use an 8kg kettlebell, though a dumbbell can be subbed in quite easily), a mat, and a bit of space. Continue reading “Weekly Workout: One Weight Full Body Workout”

Testing out a new way to do the weekly workouts! Working to find something a little more user friendly, at least for the simpler workouts. So I present to you: the Arm Burner Workout! 1 round for a quick workout, or 3 rounds to really work those arms!  Continue reading “New Weekly Workout in a New Format!”

Weekly Workout: Lizard Creek Workout

A couple weekends ago was a wedding weekend! I was privileged to attend my partner’s sisters wedding and it was fantastic and beautiful! (Admitted a bit overwhelming, but that another post.) We stayed at a fantastic location, Lizard Creek Lodge in Fernie, BC, right in the mountains. One of the great surprises and bonuses of Lizard Creek was the hotel gym! It was one of the largest and well equipped hotel gyms that I have ever been too. Perfect for getting in a pre-wedding workout! Continue reading “Weekly Workout: Lizard Creek Workout”

Powerful Deadlift: Weekly Workout

There is something about doing deadlifts that just makes me feel accomplished. I think it’s that feeling of being able to lift something really heavy without the struggle that squats sometimes bring. Last week, I hit a personal best on my deadlift too! 60kg for 4 reps with a barbell. I lifted my own body weight! Before this last year of training I never really pushed myself to much with weights (especially with bigger lifts), so it feels amazing to see progress and have an awesome comparison!

Weekly Workout: 10 Minute Heart Pumping Cardio Routine

You know it is going to be a hard workout when your heart is racing after only the first complete exercises! I’ve been doing a lot of at home workouts lately, as it’s been both rainy here in Perth and I am trying to teach my dog that it’s not playtime every time I get on the floor! (It’s a work in progress, if you didn’t see my Squating With My Dog Post.) What I love about an at home cardio routines is as soon as I get motivated to get moving, I can be starting in under 5 minutes! That means less time to get distracted, no worries about driving in traffic, and as soon as I am done, I can quickly shower and get onto other productive things in my day! (Because we all are busy with life!) Continue reading “Weekly Workout: 10 Minute Heart Pumping Cardio Routine”

Weekly Workout: 5 Minute Ab Blast

It’s easy to make excuses not to exercise. Too busy, can’t get to the gym, just finished eating, lazy…. But today is not that day! I’ve been inspired by quick and shorts workouts lately, as they a great way to fit in your daily workout and you can easily stack 2-4 together to create a total body workout. And most of them a designed to be done at home! Continue reading “Weekly Workout: 5 Minute Ab Blast”
