the poker workout {so fun, I promise!}

Happy Halloween! Did you dress up today?  Truth is, I’m really not a big halloween person – we turn the porch lights off and don’t ever get candy – sorry kiddos.  However, I do find it fun to dress up for classes!  Today was 80s workout gear + 80s workout music. I brought along some…

body pump 85 launch

Good morning!   How was your weekend? This past one seemed to fly by (when do they not?).  Thankfully I got to enjoy it.  Thursday afternoon/Friday all day I was fighting some stomach bug/body ache that left me pretty much on the couch or in bed all day.  Or as much as I could with a…

Loved-it-again!  But this time for a different reason. I taught the class! Yup this girl. Before teaching I had to…

back to cycle + babywise site

body pump launch 81
