When I look back on my life, I can’t remember exactly when, or how it happened… But somewhere along the line, I realized I can’t go a day without it. And when I do go a day without it, I just don’t feel “normal”. I experience withdrawal symptoms such as moodiness, irritability, sleeplessness and change in appetite. Sound familiar? That’s right… I’m ADDICTED!! Hi, My name is Kat, and I am a Fitness Addict! And guess what, I’m not quitting. EVER. Read more

The REAL Fountain of Youth?

JimWarren12

For any and all of us who have gone to extremes or spent countless hours in search of a magical solution to turn back the hands of time, guess what? I’m going to let you in on a little secret… Shhhh… There is a solution, and it’s not a hidden ancient mystery or a magical potion you can consume and instantly transform into a younger version of yourself. It is however a technique that people have been using for countless generations. It’s a little thing called “strength training.” Read more

Gym Workout – Creativity in Action

The next time you’re at your gym, take a look around at all the warning signs cautioning you to be careful to use the equipment properly and as directed. I don’t know about you, but sometimes that gets boring for me. Gym workouts are so much more fun when you break the rules and get creative with the equipment! Sometimes, rules are made to be broken…

Okay, okay… be careful too 😉

Booty Work – Booty Work – Booty Booty Booty Work!!

There must be something in the air because lately, everywhere I go I’m hearing women discussing the topic of shaping up their derrieres! Some have approached me to inquire about what they should be doing, why they just can’t get that thing lifted, what are my favorite glute exercises, etc. Frankly, I can’t think of a better topic to discuss! The idea of a firm, lifted, tight butt seems to be the object of every woman’s desires and I’m no exception! To answer these questions, I think we need to take a trip back in time to high school anatomy class and get back to basics. Read more
