Bosu Squats

Bosu Squats

When I was 20 years old I messed up my knee pretty badly while skiing. 4 surgeries later my every day life is fine, but I have no cartilage and my knee cap pops off track occasionally. All of this to say that training legs can be painful for me and my knee will swell...

Kayak Row

Kayak Row

Back day is my favorite day. It always has been. I love growing my wings! If you're looking for a new exercise that targets the lats, while also hitting the middle back, shoulders, traps, triceps, and forearms, try a Kayak Row! We recently incorporated this into back...

Fitness is a big part of my life. I love to work out. I love to challenge myself and my body, and I love seeing my body change. I'm approached day-after-day at the gym, at work, via text, from others that are trying to change their body and they want to know what I'm...
