Link Love #62

Yesterday. Was. Great. I slept like a freaking rock and had a nice, relaxing morning.. didn’t even eat breakfast until 11! I also took a trip to Wegmans with my parents. We bought almost the entire store haha! And the best part of my day was going to visit my grandparents and my little Jilly bean. They were quick visits but it was so nice to see them all again and I’m looking forward to getting to spend more time with everyone over the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures, but I’m hoping to have plenty after Thanksgiving! And with that, back to family time.. enjoy the links!

Fitness Friday: Cardio + Pull Circuits Workout

I’ve been pretty quiet about the whole personal training venture since getting my certification. I’ve been working to figure out where I’m going to start and before making things a bit more public, wanted to see how everything was going to pan out. Well, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve found a wonderful opportunity to launch and grow my own personal training career while learning the ins-and-outs of the business side too. In fact, I have my first client today and I’m pretty darn nervous excited!

In honor of my first client, I want to share a new workout that really got my muscles burning! I often do workouts that have a certain number of sets to complete but in an effort to keep things fresh, I decided to put together a couple of timed circuits with a cardio burst [any cardio of your choice!] in between. I’ve also included links below to show each exercise if there are any questions.

Hope you feel the burn and enjoy this workout as much as I did! And of course, tag me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram if you do this workout.. I’d love to see 🙂 And if you want a little extra challenge, check out the September Wall Sit Challenge from FitFluential! Wish me luck and have a great weekend!
