On my own

Taking a cue from Zuzana of Body Rock fame, I am started to venture out on my own and create my own workouts.

It was just one of those weeks

Have you ever been through such a stressful week that you couldn't get much done, including your normal fitness regiment?

I fear I may never become an AM exerciser

 It is currently a quarter past 5am.  While many early birds are getting up to start their morning workout--or close to waking up from their nightly slumber--I haven't even hit the sheets yet.

Warming up to Cathe

When I become a card carrying member of vidiotism and vidiocracy, I ran the the gamut of many well-known instructors out there.  If you were to list the names of all the well-known instructors in the video fitness industry, chances are I tried one of his or her workouts at least once.

 One particular instructor who alluded me was the mythical Cathe Friedrich.  You see, despite the fact that she has been a 20+ year veteran in the industry and markets a genre that normally appeals to me, something about her just didn't click with me.

It's Christmas all over again

I love being a member of an online forum dedicated to video fitness (.com).  Besides all the great advice, hints and tips, and interesting people, the best part is getting to trade for DVDs you want...and purging yourself of all the ones you regret buying.

It's absolutely criminal!

As of right now, it is about 79 degrees in Chicago, sunny weather and all, and I'm stuck inside.

Take me to the Asylum!

April 18th cannot come soon enough for us fitness junkies who love to workout to the point of collapsing in a puddle of our sweat.

The cult of barre

If you had asked me six or seven months if I would ever be interested in barre workouts, I would have laughed in your face.  If it didn't involve heavy weights, high intensity, and exhausting myself to the point of puking, it wasn't worth my time.

But oh, how the times have changed...

Quinoa: Oh how I love thee

If there is a health food I can't stop singing the praises of, it would have to be quinoa.
