Outside the gym: Camping, Hiking, Fishing, and Oreos

By |October 10th, 2017|Fitness Tips, Kristy's Kitchen, Random Thoughts|Comments Off on Outside the gym: Camping, Hiking, Fishing, and Oreos

My husband and I love to go camping. We both crave the seclusion of the mountains. Getting into nature and away from this insane world recharges our batteries. Over the past three weeks we have taken two separate trips. The first was a two day camping/hiking trip just the two of us and the other […]

Stop Trying to LOSE…….Change Your Mindset

By |December 28th, 2015|Random Thoughts|Comments Off on Stop Trying to LOSE…….Change Your Mindset

“Fitness should NEVER be about losing something… should be about what we can ACHIEVE!”

What is your MINDSET towards ‘fitness”? What is your MINDSET towards taking care of yourself physically?? Your health?? Probably, if you are like most Americans, you have a negative outlook (even if you think you don’t). And by negative……I mean that you […]

Do you ever find yourself losing motivation? What about getting frustrated with where you are physically? Do you blame your trainer and/or other people around you for you not getting the results you want?

I will be the first to say that there are a lot of terrible trainers in this industry. To be honest some […]

Be a Rebel

One day I happened to come across a post by Neghar Fonooni about her #bikinirebellion. I was inspired. It was all about body image and finding a new love for ourselves……being happy with who we are and being proud of our bodies. So many things she said are how I want my clients, friends and […]

Train with Purpose. Train with Variety.

By |May 5th, 2015|Random Thoughts|Comments Off on Train with Purpose. Train with Variety.

Some people think the only way to workout is with kettlebells. Some people would say you aren’t really an athlete unless you can run 50 miles a week. Others believe working out means throwing around heavy weight and grunting really loudly. And yet some picture people with super human strength doing crazy looking exercises with […]

This isn’t my normal blog…..but I felt it was time to share this story. This is the first time I have shared it publicly. It’s not the most tragic story. But this is a time of my life that I couldn’t “see the forrest for the trees” and at the time it was real. It […]

Ladies…..Fight Your Battle

I don’t know about you ladies, but I have NEVER “announced” that I didn’t like pie. I am that
mother who is guilty of baking a birthday cake at 10:00 at night after my kids have gone to bed just so

Finding Balance

By |February 13th, 2015|Random Thoughts|Comments Off on Finding Balance
