This just got real.

  Why is it that I can drag myself out of bed at 4 am, drive on dark (even snowy or icy) roads to get to┬áRock N Shock Fitness, and then hustle, sweat and pant through a super-tough, high-intensity workout that would kill a mere mortal - yet I still can't get my eating under control?!

I sat down with Master Breaker Danielle this … [Read more...]

My RNS progress update

To be honest, it was a little overwhelming - and I … [Read more...]

Two classes in… I’m hooked!

Friends, let me tell you about a gym so clean and pretty and full of bad@ss quotes that just walking into it makes you feel strong and empowered. Let me tell you about workouts so tough that just the first five minutes of "warm-up" leaves you gasping for breath and with muscles aching for a rest. The first FIVE minutes! And, let me tell you about a fitness facility so high-tech that thanks to wearable technology on my wrist, I can look up during my workout and see my stats on the big … [Read more...]
