4 Cardio/Strength Workouts (that won’t kill your knees!)

There is a cardio world outside of running!

For those who suffer from knee pain, have a significant amount of weight to lose, or who just plain hate the activity, it’s important to experiment with different ways of moving.

At the heart of it all, you have to ENJOY HOW YOU EXERCISE if you ever want it to stick around as an actual habit.

If running brings you pain, makes you feel “heavy” as you move, or you find it boringAF, I’ve got 4 different styles of workouts that might make your heart, head, and knees happy.

Btw, INTENSITY will beat DURATION for every single time.  When speed is not an option, it’s time to hit the often neglected INCLINE button.  Ready?  #leggo

Less Meat, No Problem

Disclaimer:  I am not a chef.  I am not a vegetarian.  I should not be anything close to your #1 source of vegetarian eating.

I am, however, a personal trainer/studio owner/nutrition coach who is pretty damn good at hunting down and gathering up recipes so that I can tweak and change them in order to keep myself lean, strong, and energetic and help others do the same.

One of the most common obstacles I run into when coaching folks through their nutrition is “getting tired of eating meat.”

In fact, in each Diet Rebellion I’ve coached there is usually 1-5 people who within the first 10 days cries “uncle!”  I need a break.  I am over meat.  My jaw is tired from gnawing on flesh.  I would rather skip a meal than eat another piece of chicken or burger.

If this is you, I wanted to show you a few very effective, easy, and quick WORK-AROUNDS that we experiment with and use.  Remember, nothing is sustainable unless you ENJOY your meals!!!  It is a non-negotiable part of real lifestyle change!!!!

3 Ways that make you DO the things you KNOW

You can KNOW what it takes to lose weight, run faster, lift heavier, start a business, change careers, re-organize your house, etc… and accomplish none.

You can read all the books, blogs, magazines, talk to all the experts, make friends with all the right people, and get all the diplomas and certifications you want and still never really reach your destination.

Isn’t it, at least, curious that we can simultaneously KNOW “all the right information” and end up DOING none of it?

That’s because…
