I did it! I traveled for 2 months straight without getting sick!
A little allergy action (Midwest, you’re killing me!), but beyond that, I’m up to speed and my energy hasn’t faltered that much at all.
In fact, I’m hearing this in every city:
“How do you have so much energy right now?”
…usually in a fascinated, envious tone… like Ursula telling Ariel that she...

Ever wonder how to progress your bodyweight workout without adding equipment?
Well, today, my good sir, we are going to show you exactly how to do that.

Why, you ask, should I worry about progression? I like my same...

When I was in the hospital, one of the silliest parts for me at the time was “creative time.”
“What are we, in kindergarten?” I thought to myself as we headed into a classroom with long tables; crayons, pencils, watercolors strewn about over all of them as if 5-year-olds had been called out for a fire drill. We were told to have a seat and grab a piece of...

Yay, it’s a fitness post!
I’m always talking about goals goals goals because I know, in my life, how crucial they are to keeping me motivated.
I just opened up a special Facebook group to some of The 30×30 donors and so far, two people are in race training for Spring races.
Training for a race is one of the best forms of motivation. If you’re starting out in exercise, nothing will...

Click here to read We’re Still Here: This Is The Year You Keep Going if you don’t know what 30-day challenge we’re talking about…
You made it!
30 days later and you’re healthier for having stuck to your guns. Sure, it was hard sometimes. It was frustrating and different than anything you’ve done before.
But how are you feeling now? How much more energized, clear-headed...

Oh yee-ah. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, y’all.
Snow will be drifting down onto rooftops…
Children staring in wonder through glowing, nose-printed glass windows…
And you’ll be waiting in line all day to make sure your little one gets this generation’s Tickle Me Elmo…
Ah, the holidays.
Well, this year, let’s take all that pent-up angst from...

It should be a happy time.
A time of joy and celebration. A time of love and congratulations.
But when you’re my client, a birthday is a time to be feared.
My clients dread it all year long. The Birthday Workout is the worst workout they’ll have all year depending on how old they’re turning.
So, since it’s my birthday this week, I want to give you all the gift of incredible...

My absolute favorite thing about running Strong Inside Out is the correspondence I have with readers.
I get all kinds of amazing, heartfelt, make-me-cry emails from people who have fought through hardships and come out stronger. I get inspired by you all, and the level of strength within every single one of you.
Recently, as you probably know, I ran a little 30-day challenge.
I posted my before and after...

As we come off the 30-Day Challenge, I have been inspired to squash every one of your excuses to smitherines. :) Since I kicked my habit of mindless night-eating, I’m going to take those last little excuses and drop kick them for you.
This week will be dedicated to the excuse I hear more than all the rest:
“I just don’t have time to workout/eat healthy.”
You know better than this,...

There are sooooooo many opinions out there.
Some people are die-hard about the way they work out because it’s what’s worked for them. I can understand that.
You know what’s funny, though? A lot of people are die-hard about methods that haven’t worked for them, just because they’ve heard so many times that those methods should work.
They place the blame upon themselves: I must...

If you’re coming over to Strong Inside Out from The Change Blog or Transformational Motivation, welcome! I hope you find the information useful and hope-inspiring! :)
If you’ve ever read the little blurb in the header of this site, you’ll see:
“Empowering you through FITNESS and positive action to overcome life’s obstacles.”
Positive action is a given to overcoming setbacks, right?

When I first started yoga years ago, I immediately fell in love with the form called “power” yoga.
It’s essentially a series of movements in which you go through at a fast pace while concentrating on breath.
Toward the end of class, however, we’d always work on some form of arm balance or headstand.
This is where I’d start to consider leaving...

So I’m a personal trainer and am devoted to being healthy yada yada yada…
But I love me some ice cream.
“LOVE” IN BIG, BOLD, CAPITAL LETTERS.
I just got back from a whirlwind trip to New England to visit with my fiancé’s amazing family and was introduced to Lago’s ice cream.
Oh. Emm. Gee.
(I refuse to write the actual letters)
The flavor options alone are enough to set...

I am usually a strength training fiend.
I love lifting weights. It makes me feel strong. It gets all my angst out. I have fun with it!
Last week, however, I embarked upon a different journey: yoga.
Yes, I decided after months of absence from my last random yoga class to sign up at a studio that was recommended by a friend…
…and I LOVE it!
This particular studio is all about...
