Big News!

This week I made the leap and signed up to be a Team Beachbody Coach and am super excited to get started on this journey!  The first program I am participating in is The Ultimate Reset along with Shakeology.  As a barre and Pilates teacher, I am dedicated to working out and being active, but always have trouble staying on track when it comes to food.  After a long day, I am so easily tempted to eat an unhealthy meal.  The Ultimate Reset is a 3 week system in which you balance your body chemistry, remove toxins & reset digestion, and rejuvenate your health.  I am eager to get started with The Ultimate Reset and share my results with you.  As soon as I receive my package in the mail, I’ll update everyone with more information.  And, if you are interested in committing to The Ultimate Reset along with me, please email to let me know!

On another note, I am absolutely obsessed with my new Splits59 Loren Seamless Bra in hot pink!  I already have it in nude, and it is the most comfortable bra I own.  Better yet, you can pick it up at Exhale Pilates Studio this week during their Valentine’s Day Sale at 40% off!

Healthy Happenings

Hi, everyone, and happy Hump Day!  Do you know why its an exciting week?!  Because on Monday, I officially began the Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN).  What does the program entail?  Well, it is an eleven month online program with a curriculum that addresses over 100 dietary theories, counseling techniques, and business training.  What specifically drew me to IIN’s program is the holistic approach that it takes when it comes to health and wellness.  At the end, I will be qualified to become a certified Health Coach through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, an independent professional association for holistic healthcare professionals.

I’m not quite sure what I’ll do with my certification (I’ve got a year to think about it), but I am eager to apply what I will be learning regarding nutrition to my personal lifestyle and dietary habits.  Also, as part of my training, I will begin completing health histories halfway through the program, during which I will need some willing participants to work with me!

IIN package arrived in the mail!

Full of goodies!

I also began teaching Reformer Pilates classes at Exhale Pilates Studio this week!  I’ll be teaching there 2-3 mornings per week while one of the owners is out on maternity leave.  I am thrilled to be in their studio more often, as well as to get to know all of their wonderful clients!

On another note, learn how to brighten someone’s day by reading my most recent blog post, “Make Someone’s Day,” for The Zesty Digest for Sweet Lemon Magazine.

And one last thing, be on the look out for an exciting announcement regarding my first giveaway before the end of the week!

Hope you all have a great rest of the week!  Oh yeah, and happy Halloween!

Tower Workshop at Exhale Pilates Studio

How was your weekend?  Mine was busy, yet relaxing at the same time.  Even better, I feel like I was actually a little productive.  On Saturday, I took part in an all-day Pilates Tower Workshop with some amazing ladies.  The workshop was led by Exhale Pilates Studio owners, Lauren and Carter, at their downtown Charleston, SC studio.  The material we covered was very in depth and comprehensive, and I am eager to use some of these newly acquired tower exercises in my upcoming classes.

Back in August, I took part in their Reformer 1 training and have been working to complete my required practice, observation, and teaching hours over the last few months.  I plan to finish the rest of my teacher training through their programs as well.  Check out some pictures of the studio on their website, or better yet, sign up for a class and see it yourself!
