Happy Sunday! This morning started a bit earlier than normal.  I tried a new yoga class at my favorite studio, Yoga House Of Charleston. PowerHouse Conditioning was a blast! It wasn’t yoga in the traditional sense but was a combination of intense strength training, movement, and flexibility. It reminded me a lot of boot camp, […]

Yesterday morning I did something I haven’t done in over 5 weeks. Speed work at the track! Katie and I took a hiatus from track workouts about two weeks out from Kiawah’s Half Marathon. With my foot recovering and with the holidays neither of us were able to make track training happen. And boy could […]

Two is better than one. Sure, there are times when you want to be all by your lonesome but for the most part, humans, by nature, are social creatures. When it comes to working out it’s the same. Studies show that working out with a partner is more beneficial because it not only holds you […]

“Deep breath. You’re almost done! Force a long, slow breath. There is no reason to stop, if you do, you know you will wish that you hadn’t. It’s harder to get going again if you stop. Just push to the end.” That’s the conversation that goes on in my head when I am working out. […]

Wow, what a week this is going to be! I can’t express how blessed I feel to do what I do! Yesterday was filled with anxiety… like the first day of school anxiety. No matter how many clients I’ve trained or how many boot camps I’ve run, I still get butterflies in my belly when […]

Happy Monday! It’s official: The holidays are over. Back to normal scheduling! While normally I am not a huge fan of Mondays, today is different. Today is the start of our very own fitness studio. I’ll try to take some pictures this week to show. The first class kicks off at 6:00am. Not thrilled about […]

And that’s just what they’ll do… Yup, I did it! Yesterday I put on some layers and laced up my Mizunos for a 3.2 mile run. The first time running since the terrible Kiawah Half. I’ve been a good little girl, listening to my body and allowing my foot to heal before trying anything (anything […]

Monday will kickstart what I like to call GymMania (if it hasn’t started already)… everyone and their sister will be sprinting to the gym (and circling the parking lot for 10 minutes trying to get the closest spot possible) to get started with their New Years Resolutions. They’ll dust off their gym cards and feel […]

Happy New Year!! I am stoked for 2014… mainly because I hate odd numbers and writing 2013 just never came easily. Okay, I am pretty stoked for a new year of goals, accomplishments and challenges too! But I don’t want to harp on 2013… while many bloggers are recapping the year, I am ready to […]

Happy New Years Eve! Cheers to ending the year in style… and in my life that means a movie on the couch in pj’s with a glass of champagne (with a frozen raspberry of course) in my right hand. We go crazy on New Years! Not really and that’s the way we love it. Dinner, […]

Two days… that’s it until we waive goodbye to 2013 and say hello to 2014. Instead of looking at it as the end of one year, let’s get excited about the start of something new and fresh! Here at Lifting Revolution I have a ton of great things planned for 2014, and one kicks off […]

The last we spoke of my diet I was up in arms about what I should do. Over the past several months, my health hasn’t been tip top. I’ve been diagnosed with anemia, my body hasn’t been recovering as quickly as it used to, I’ve had bouts of adult acne, and to be honest, I […]

This has been one of the best weeks in a very long time! It’s been all about recharging, recovering and refocusing. While I have missed teaching my amazing boot campers, and spending time on my computer (yes, I really do love blogging away), I needed this week. Dan and I needed this week as a […]
