10/18 7 Best Flat Belly Moves with Betty Rocker and Natalie Jill Fitness! I went to visit my friend and fitness expert Natalie Jill recently, and of course we worked out together! Natalie is 43 and not only is she in amazing shape, she has a beautiful chiseled 6-pack! That wasn’t the case a few years back though, after she gained 50 pounds during her pregnancy she told me she was determined to get her body into the best shape of her life – so she could take better care of herself and set an example for her daughter. I asked her to share her secrets with us, and in today’s workout she’ll tell you her 3 tips for getting flat abs – and 9 of her best exercises so you can ROCK your body with us!
10/10 Full Body Yoga Sculpt with Coach Kylie Join me and the awesome Coach Kylie for a full body yoga sculpt session that will tone, stretch and strengthen your entire body! YOGA, just like this challenge workout program, is a PRACTICE.
Our daily practices add up to habits…and our habits are the foundation that shape our lives. I love how yoga reminds me to have balance in my body between stretch and strength – something I need to be reminded of in my life as well. What about you?
10/6 Fitness Monogamy: Do YOU Have Too Many Coaches? I ran into trouble last week in my business. In trying to grow, I am always looking for smart people to guide me – a sound strategy. But this time it really backfired because I ended up not knowing WHAT decision to make because my coaches were giving me opposite advice!! In fitness I think this happens ALL THE TIME. We want to try the latest and greatest strategy, but we end up getting confused by all the mixed messages. That’s why I suggest choosing ONE VOICE to listen to at a time, trying out the strategies or suggestions you’re getting from that person and giving it a chance to see how it works.
9/24 TRX Leg and Booty Workout I got a TRX for my house because I love how this simple system takes my bodyweight workouts to the NEXT LEVEL!
They have them at a lot of gyms, and if you want to put one in your house you can order one on Amazon. I love mixing up my workout programs throughout the year, and after 8 weeks of lifting I wanted to give my joints a break and focus back on calisthenics.
So I’m combining TRX resistance training with my famous bodyweight circuits – and feeling awesome!
9/8 Top 2 Ways to Jumpstart a Good Mood: Motivational Mondays I woke up today NOT feeling like a rockstar. I was wishing it was Sunday again so I could sleep in and have one more day to catch up on everything around my house. Bad moods are the worst. They sap our energy, creativity, drive and sometimes cause us to engage in behavior that isn’t healthy. Hello, snacks I’m not even hungry for? Self-indulgent movie watching when I should be studying? Bring it on. Look, we can’t feel like Mary Fucking Sunshine 24/7 but you know those times when you catch yourself feeling uninspired or just down on life for no good reason – that’s the time you need to pull out this game plan.
9/4 Sundried Tomato Pizza (Paleo, Vegan, Nut-Free Crust) I really loved the vegan, paleo Pie Crust recipe I made a couple weeks ago, and wondered if I could adapt it to make a killer Pizza Crust. For me, there has not been a great alternative to regular pizza crust – I love the way cauliflower pizza crust tastes, but it’s a pain to make, and some of the other recipes I’ve made – while tasty – haven’t held up well after a day in the fridge. And, duh, everybody knows that pizza the next day is AWESOME.
I think what you’ll find with this recipe is that it’s very easy to throw together in the food processor, it rolls out without any trouble, and holds together beautifully without cracking.

Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. -Muhammed Ali
