This video says it all!  In his debut YouTube performance, my son, Danny, talks about the Young Living essential oil blend, PanAway.  (He was part of an essential oil 101 class taught by kids.  It was one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!)  If you haven’t yet, watch the video for great information on how and why to use this blend!  Warning: prepare yourself for cuteness overload!!

The Twelve Days of Christmas Workout

On the first day of Christmas my trainer gave to me…

Are you singing the song in your head yet? Good, because that’s exactly how this workout works!

Do the First Day exercise (1 Star Jump).  Do the Second Day, AND First Day exercises (2 Side Lunges, 1 Star Jump).  Do the Third Day, Second Day and First Day exercises (3 Walk Out Planks, 2 Side Lunges, 1 Star Jump)…etc. Getting the hang of it?  Do the Twelfth Day round twice!

20 minute Tabata Workout

When you only have a short amount of time for a workout, you need easy and effective!  Try this equipment free workout that will get your heart pumping and muscles working!

What is Tabata?

Tabata is a type of high intensity interval training.  Each Tabata round is 4 minutes long, alternating between 20 seconds of super hard work (that’s the high intensity part) and 10 seconds of rest (this allows you to recover a bit for the next cycle of work, that’s the interval part).  Because this is a high intensity workout, it is recommended for an intermediate to advanced fitness level.  Tabata has gained popularity in the fitness world because of it’s easy to follow format and it’s efficiency.  I use it often in my classes, either as a single round for a cardio burst, or as a  whole class format, completing 8 rounds.
