Looking for a workout plan that will kick your ass? 

Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guides (aka BBG) are the bomb.com and after over 3 years of doing them, I’m still not sick of them. Her guides are broken into 3 resistance workouts to complete weekly, each focusing in on different areas of the body. Additionally, she gives recommendations for incorporating HIIT and LISS exercise into your weekly workout routine. Millions of girls are part of her amazing online community have found extraordinary results, which with the number of burpees you do from her guides on a weekly basis, I sure as hell hope so. Most importantly, Kayla’s message of building strength and confidence in yourself opposed to paying attention to the number on the scale is especially why I support and recommend her program.

Now, you can cancel your gym membership and download her app to get a number of different workout plans to always keep things interesting including BBG of course, BBG Stronger (weight lifting), Body and Mind (yoga), and SELF Post-Pregnancy.

 

Fuel up for and after your workout. 

Unico Nutrition is my go to when it comes to pre-workout and protein. Not only is it delicious, it doesn’t include any funny ingredients many are cautious about when shopping for a pre-workout or protein powder. The proteins are great to incorporate into a smoothie or oats. Try the Banana Split flavor, it’s great with strawberries for a Strawberry Banana smoothie.

Look sexy while you workout. 

I’m not an ambassador for Fabletics, however I love their brand. They have an excellent product and for a reasonable price. The only catch is if you purchase, you sign up for their VIP Membership, which you need to either remember to purchase or “Skip a Month” online so you aren’t charged $49.99 each month.

Anyways, the design, quality, and price are all great. No complaints at all! I recommend giving them a go! (And I believe your first outfit is cheap too, so no reason not to try them out, right?)

 

Avid traveler? Get your sweat on before your flight.  

I recently had the opportunity to visit ROAM Fitness, a gym facility located inside the D/E terminals at BWI Airport. Such an innovative idea, ROAM Fitness allows you to use their gym facilities (or borrow clothes from their facility), get your sweat on, keep an eye on your flight, and shower and clean up, in the freaking terminal! How cool. Blog post to come on this awesome place.
