Client Story: Katie’s Transformation

February 3, 2015 by


My Year of Miracles: A few months ago, I received an email from my coach, Katie, entitled “Your Year of Miracles” and something about that really resonated with me. 2014 was an incredible gift and every time I see someone post something like “Hey 2015, 2014 will be hard to top” I have to laugh […]

Sheri’s Workouts: The Power of Six 3 – Butt and Small Parts

June 15, 2010 by


When weight lifting, the first 2-3 sets are really just about blood distribution.  When you’re a beginner (in your first couple years of lifting) then this is good – you’ll build muscle at this level, you’ll regenerate tissue, and you’ll recover fast enough to keep you enjoying what you’re doing.  Increased blood circulation is really […]
