My Crossbody Trainer Review

So I added a new piece of equipment to my home gym today. It’s the Crossbody Trainer from Nexersys, and I must say, it’s pretty cool and very effective.   At first, it looks like a very slick free-standing double end bag. It’s so much more. I have the interactive …

Chicken and Quinoa Dinner

Here is a simple, healthy meal that is ready in 30 minutes – great for those who have busy weekday schedules (sooooo … everyone). There’s no reason to hit the drive thru at McGreazy’s when you have quick and delicious recipes like this on-hand. Eating simple, nutritious meals like this …

Hellfire Circuit Training 1

I like to do workouts like this a couple of times per week. Gives a little bit of everything, and the 45 minutes goes by fast. There are a few “scheduled” break times in the workout, but if you find that you are running out of gas during the workout, …

Treadmill HIIT Workout

In my normal workout programming, there’s a treadmill workout scheduled once every two weeks. I call it the Redline workout. The purpose of this workout is to take you up to the top end of your heart rate training zone, then you recover. Of course, be sure to check with …

Fat Loss Workouts

These 2 workouts are both part of my personal workout plan. One is a HIIT workout that is based on sprinting protocol (don’t worry, you don’t have to sprint outside if you don’t want to. There are options). The other workout is an upper body weight training workout that uses shortened …
