Living in the Tri-state area (during inclement weather) makes outdoor workouts difficult.  Once the Spring arrives, I will create a more “Boot Camp” style regimen for myself using a combo TRX, weights, and walk-jog-run drill. I will post pictures and/or video you’ll find easy to follow.

Start Date: Feb. 21st.

  • I will be posting my food plan
  • My general thoughts
  • My workout for the next 6 weeks into the beginning of April…stay tuned!

Note: Always check with your doctor before starting any fitness regimen.  A thorough check up can’t hurt and should be done every year.  Many of the routines and diet plans that I create for myself may not be suited for you.  Ask me questions so I can help you if you have any limitations.
