Jazz Up Your Shakes with Blender Bombs!

With an insane work schedule and workout plan, I heavily rely on shakes to make sure that I get in all of the nutrients I need when I don't have time for a full meal.

Into The Wild

Preface: If you ask me where my favorite place in the world is, I will either tell you the Dean Dome at UNC or the Grand Canyon.

Get Fit For Summer with This Fit Blonde

My obsession with Amanda is no secret. We have our own hashtag - #GaleDale. It's a thing. Our friendship started many moons ago when we were brought together by the late & great fitness platform, FitOrbit. Amanda was my trainer and taught me all the things. As a result, I lost 40 lbs in about 3 months. Crazy, I know. Not only is she the most kick ass trainer, she is the most fun person on the planet. Also, she has approx 15 degrees so she's basically a child genius.

Yoga Download Adds Online Yoga Teacher Training Program

When the Yoga Download team asked me to try out their online platform, I jumped at the chance. While I love yoga, I am too poor to afford most yoga studios in Los Angeles and sadly, my gym only offers one yoga class that works with my schedule.

I love doing them in addition to my trainer assigned workouts

Train Like A Pro Athelete

The Super Bowl is the most anticipated sporting event of the year, but rather than be inspired by the athleticism of the day, Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest day of the year for food consumption - following Thanksgiving. Even if you do celebrate the Super Bowl by indulging in chicken wings and beer, use the event to motivate yourself and amp up your fitness routine with workouts inspired by the pro athletes we love to cheer on.
