Starting Your Journey

Today, I'm starting another chapter in my own fitness journey with PiYo. Believe it or not, I still get a bit nervous when about to start a new program or round. Maybe you can relate to some of these thoughts that I have as I get ready to start: What if I don't have amazing results

Fitness Myths

You already know there's a lot of mis-information out there. Some if it is even WORSE because it has a hint of truth but is told in such a way to really distort the facts. I've fallen into that trap, too. Here are some of the biggest fitness myths I still see thrown around: MUST

P90X/Insanity Hybrid Results

I officially finished my Fall P90X/Insanity Hybrid Round last week (Dec 2011)! It was the first time I'd done a hybrid round but I really enjoyed it.

However, the other areas of my life were extremely challenging and weighing me down heavily.
