The Power of Perception

Last week I wrote about the power of a positive mindset. As much as I know how powerful our mind is, it still floors me that just a thought can actually change our body chemistry.That said, adopting a positive mindset is all fine...

The Only 3 Mobility Exercises You Need

If you are tight you aren’t able to do all the things you used to do, and that doesn’t feel good. Some of the most basic tasks in life can be lost when we lose our mobility. Tying our shoes, putting on a bra, getting in and out of a car, getting up and down off the floor…s

There is no one size fits all type of HIIT, you can use your own body weight and do things like burpees, squat jumps, skipping rope or sprinting, or you could hop on a bike or an elliptical to get the same intense results.
