This is a super controversial topic. I know. A lot of the concern usually comes from a very good place, but as a trainer, I sometimes don’t understand the expertise on my pregnancy and training regimen from other people, so I decided on putting down what I think of it all... To start – I… Continue reading Pregnancy and running
Remember how I said that running is not for everyone? I still think that, even though I run from time to time. I had put aside running since I ran my half-marathon in August because my goals were to build muscle mass and try out some strength programs, to see what happens. And I have… Continue reading What does running have to do with your heart rate?

Not that long ago, people… Continue reading N.E.A.T. and why does it matter?
