Smart Snacking!

Are you on the go a lot? 

Eat more meals in your car than at your dinner table? 

Never have time for a healthy meal? 

Stop making excuses. I am constantly on the go between work, my own training, and traveling between towns, so I have been forced to become creative about finding healthy foods that are easy to pack. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you, so next time you are on the go, you can bring along plenty of healthy options! Here you go…

Packable snacks:

-Freeze dried fruit

-Sliced raw veggies (carrots, bell pepper, snap peas, cucumber, and celery all pack great)

Partner Workout

Something about working out with someone else always motivates me to push just a bit harder than if I’m exercising solo! Here is a partner workout to complete with a friend. As a team you will go through the workout 5 times, splitting up the exercises however you like, but there’s one catch…only one athlete can work at a time!
