Happy Halloween Eve!

I love this holiday and the energy that surrounds it. I am notorious for making holiday themed workouts for the gym, and for some reason I find that Halloween is the most fun to come up with.


We’re going to be eating our fair share of sugar, fat and just total crap this weekend (which is fine… it’s all about moderation). But it will feel good to get a workout in before and after too! Right?

Here’s a fun fact for you… The average kid’s trick or treat bag will contain over 1200 calories, 177 g of sugar, and 32 grams of fat!


I can promise you that when I was a kid (up braces and all), my bag was at least 2x this. My brother and I used a pillow case and we weren’t satisfied until it was at least half way full. <– Seriously!

I am sure we’re all going to aiming to burn a few more calories over the next few days, and I want to help.

Below you’ll find an awesome montage of the best halloween workouts! Some I created, and some are from my fit-loving friends.

They’re intense, they’re fun (as all themed things are), and they will scare the fat right off your body. BOO!

deadlifts and doughnuts

Trust me… they do have a commonality! And one you’re going to love. Remember a few weeks ago when I shared a post on why women should use protein power? I tried to cover a lot in that post but by the several emails and comments I received, I still left a lot of room […]

What To Do When You Would Rather Have A Tooth Pulled Than Workout

October 23, 2014
how to like working out

To copy the wise marketers of Almond Joy… Sometimes you feel like a workout, sometimes you don’t. Yesterday morning, as my boot campers zombied their way into class (it’s 6:30am after all), I could feel an air of dread. A few of them just weren’t feeling it, but they somehow had dragged themselves out of […]
