WILD WITH WILDFIRE
A friend of mine told me about a cool app that lets you explore different studios for free, unlimited access, attend a variety of classes, all day, everyday. It sounds like a perfect deal for me, so I wanted to share it with you. One week free, no credit card necessary. Then, only if you… Read more
Back from Broken Fibula (as seen in Brooks Blog)
GUEST BLOGGER FOR BROOKS: I started running when I was super young, just for fun. Around and around the park or in our backyard. This odd hamster habit continued throughout junior high and high school. I naturally signed up for track so I could continue enjoying hours and hours and miles upon miles on the… Read more
Flip It and Reverse It!
As Missy Elliott once said “Flip It and Reverse It!” I don’t think she had as PG of a meaning behind her words as I do, but when helping to heal my back her words resonate. I have been feeling very tight all along my spine. I literally “snap, crackle, pop” every time I stretch my back.… Read more
On the Road with Ragnar!
Ragnar is a relay race that can take you to all kinds of cool cities through all kinds of terrain. I experienced my first Ragnar with some of my fave fools. A group of us former and current Reno (KTVN Ch 2! Woop!) news anchors get together at least once a year and take on… Read more
As you may know, if you’ve been following along with my blog, I’ve been training with Team Exos. We don’t workout together on Wednesdays because that’s our “off” day. And today I def needed the “off” time. I’ve been feeling so extremely exhausted so I tried to sleep with no alarm, but I still somehow woke… Read more
Too Pretty To Pass Up
Today is considered my “off” day from Team Exos so that gave me the freedom to roam. Which is exactly what I did. I laced up my Brooks Running shoes and headed out the door and just kept going for as long as my heart desired. It’s such a gorgeous day here in San Diego… Read more
Is that Voss in Your Voss?!
This may seem like the simplest DIY project ever but I figure it can’t hurt to provide you this quick and easy tip on a great way to drink water . All you have to do is go to the gas station and grab a VOSS water bottle and refill it a jillion times forever… Read more
Magic in a Bottle
When you work on TV, what happens to your face can literally make or break you. When I started noticing that I was aging and gaining worry lines, I started to worry even more which then exacerbated the problem! There’s really no right way to worry, right? I was never too concerned with wrinkles until… Read more
Climb On a Versa!
They look so innocent just hanging out there agains the wall. But these small, simple machines are very deceiving. If you want to sweat and pant and feel sore all at once, then hop on a Versa Climber. I kid you not. I had never experienced one of these bad boys until I signed up… Read more
If Only Mats Could Talk…
I never thought I would even consider straying away from Lululemon’s The Mat. When I first got it (about 3 years ago) I realized I have found a safe haven to do tricks, twists, downward dog without slips, and lots of shavasana (nap time.) I love the texture and the way it allows me to… Read more
I’ve had my eye on this particular gym for nearly 6 months. We did a story on Exos, located at SKLZ headquarters back in February when several college athletes were in town to prep for the NFL Combine. I was IMPRESSED! Here’s the story that aired on San Diego 6: http://www.sandiego6.com/news/local/Local-facility-training-college-students-football-NFL-290688391.html I emailed them right away… Read more
Who’s ready for a challenge? ME! ME! You too?? Most people’s main area of concern is ABS, including me. C’mooooon abs, let’s get you where I want you to be for the summer – 6-pack preferred. So I decided to commit to doing a set of abs everyday for 30 days straight and I invite… Read more
Since I am now cleared to run, of course today’s workout entailed running. I had about 15 minutes in between working to get out there and sweat. So even if you don’t like running, 15 minutes won’t kill ya. It was such a fun 15! The air here in San Diego is a bit humid… Read more
Every Step is SUWEEET!
When you’ve been stuck in a cast, boot, and wrap for 6 months you have a newfound appreciation for every single precious step. Putting one foot in front of the other without a weird hobble or piercing pain is truly something to cherish. I don’t mean to sound so poetic but when something you love… Read more
The Perfect Combo
I am feeling the desperate need to lean out. Summer is approaching and the beaches are filling up with babes in bikinis and I want to be one of them!! So my mission to babe-dom includes two thing – pilates and yoga! I’m not talking about piloga. Although I’m sure that’s good too. I’m talking… Read more
Take It Outside!
Do you ever spend the amount of time it takes to go to the gym, thinking about going to gym? I did that today. Instead of jumping out of bed and heading to the gym to work on some weight training, I lay in bed wondering if I should go indoors or take my workout… Read more
This Is How I Roll…
Foam Rolling hurts. There’s a reason why every trainer, fitness class, and workout video includes stretching. Just do it! If you don’t stretch you may end up feeling a pain similar to stubbing a toe, except the toe would be the size of your entire calf and the stub would involve a big foamy tube.… Read more
Kickbox the Sand!
I just wrapped a whirlwind wedding weekend across two ends of the state. I was helping a friend with a wedding in Carlsbad Thurs-Sat. Then we went to Sacramento for another dear friends wedding on Sunday. The only semi-workout I even attempted to get was dancing on the dance floors and going up and down… Read more
We Run SF!
Running the streets of San Francisco is like breaking out of captivity, a rebel who just wants the freedom to run his/her heart out. That’s because streets that are normally full of cars, cabs, buses, trolleys, etc. are full of thousands of runners for one morning. The hustle and bustle, horns, and yells of The… Read more
Bands That Make Ya Dance!
I do a lot with my trusty resistance bands. I live by the beach so it’s near impossible to go indoors and workout when the sand, the waves, the sun, and the ocean air is calling me. So I often take my resistance bands to the beach and WORK IT! My mom makes an AWESOME… Read more
Let the PT begin…
I have now signed up for physical therapy and it’s ON. It sucks, but it’s ON! I gotta go twice a week to stretch and stretch and massage and stretch. You see, a big reason my fibula broke while I was running on sand was because all the muscles, tendons, and ligaments around my ankle,… Read more
I recently learned the importance of meditating from Dr. Deepak Chopra himself. He explained that meditating was like pushing the reset button. When you sleep, your body gets to rest and recover, right? But your brain still dreams and is in high gear. So meditating is making a conscious effort to stop or slow your… Read more
Perks of Pilates
Who doesn’t want to look like a ballerina? Take a look around at classes like The Dailey Method, The Bar Method, and Pilates and it’s as if all the women came from the same perfect mold. Long. Lean. GORGEOUS! Ok, I’ll have what they’re having. My dear friend and former co-worker, Kimi Evans invited me… Read more
