    Back & biceps today + 20 mins on the #booty shaper (aka stairmaster). Medicine has me a little loopy. I looooove these #UnderArmour compression pants, though. It's ok - you can look.

Sassy SoulBody Rockstars

I love everything about barre. I first fell in love with this class several years ago, and that love has grown ever since I started to teach it. As part of Merritt Clubs Member Appreciation Day, I led two back-to-back sessions tonight, and it was so fun! It’s always great to see my regulars as … Continue reading

Friday Five: Healthy Snacking

I’m a true grazer. Most of the time, I’d rather munch on small things throughout the day than break it down to five meals. For competition prep, however, I had to pump the breaks on random snacking because every calorie and macronutrient counts – gotta keep my eye on the prize, baby. For snacks, I … Continue reading


Wind Down: An After Preakness Party
