My First Venice “Client”

If you have been reading my blog, you know that I spent the last 3 weeks in Venice, Fl. While at a “social” in the condo complex, I met a renter who brought up that she likes working out, and has not found a challenging workout in the area. She had been doing workouts in her condo by herself, but still could not get the workout she got from her trainer back home. I took this opportunity to offer her a workout session at the park right down the road.

I am so passionate about sharing my outdoor workout ideas, and I was fortunate for this opportunity. When renting in Florida during the winter months, why would you NOT want to do most of your workout outside, instead of at a YMCA?

I did not know her fitness level, so I decided to just have a general idea of exercises to do, ones which can be done at all levels. Continue reading

Yoga Challenge: 2 Week Results (photo progression)

It has been 16 days since I posted my first pictures of my chosen Yoga Poses.  Since then, I have tried to incorporate Yoga daily, whether it be a 10 minute/50 minute Tara Stiles YouTube video, or practicing Yoga by myself on the beach.  After viewing the difference between my Week One & Week Two Poses, I realize that to continue to make big changes (and even maintain changes) I need to start practicing longer every day and a bigger variety of poses.  I tend to do the same Tara Stiles Video (which I love because it’s 50 minutes) and I can see the poses that are repeated in that video are the ones I am seeing the biggest improvements in (downward dog, low lunge, etc)  When I get home I plan to attend more Yoga classes!  Continue reading

Stadium Workout

50 Plyo Jumps

50 Plyo Jumps

We are still in Venice, Fl, and I cannot get enough of the weather.  It has been mid 80’s and sunny every day since we have been here, and I am in HEAVEN!  As always, I try to spend as much time as possible outside, and of course that includes my workouts!

Today I decided to use the Football stadium down the road from the condo.   The stadium is about .75 miles away, which I used as my warm-up jog.  I then used the stairs & field for the rest of my workout, which you can find below.

As you will learn through this blog, there is a fitness facility around every corner, you just have to be creative!
