Now Polar has introduced the Polar Balance, a stylish solution to weight management and both devices sync via Bluetooth Smart (iOS & Android) with the Polar Flow App. The Polar Balance looks amazing, it’s …

Fitbit Frustration

Fitbit asked me to contact them through their website after seeing a tweet I posted. I was frustrated with my Charge HR and my tweet reflected it. I purchased the Charge HR so I could get an accurate account of calories burned throughout a 24 hour period. It’s easy to count my calories in but much …

Today’s Workout 141211

Individual achievements show persistence & determination.  Collectively they show perseverance & growth. Today I was finally able to do something I have been working on for some time.  It’s the one arm handstand.  Sounds simple enough, and it may be for some.  But I have struggled with it.  I’ll admit, I didn’t stay in the …

Today’s Workout 141210

Today’s CrossFit workout looked daunting to say the least, and it didn’t disappoint. Twelve minutes of Squat Cleans and Push Jerks with little opportunity for rest and if you’re resting the clock keeps counting.  I remember not too long ago that lifting 135-lbs was out of the question so being able to do this workout …

Today’s Workout 141208

I made a change to the CrossFit WOD from 12/7/2014.  The original called for 40-lb dumbbell snatches and I substituted 44-lb kettlebell snatches. To say that this little ditty kicked my butt would be an understatement. My heart was pounding and I was constantly out of breath.  I was shooting for a time between 20-25 minutes …

Today’s Workout 141203

Today’s Workout came from the CrossFit Website.  I made a few modifications for my fitness level and equipment.  Please feel free to do the same. This WOD looks innocent enough but actually, it kicked my butt.  I was out of breath for most of the exercises and my heart was pounding. This one is definitely …

Today’s Workout 141201

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving and were able to spend some quality time with friends & family.  Were you able to get a few workouts in?  I was out of town and didn’t have access to my home gym but I made do with some kettlebells and free weights. For today’s workout it felt great …
