Fitness and Style

If you follow me on Instragram then you may have seen my side-by-side workout progress reveal on the weekend.  Back in April of this year, I added resistance training to my workout regimen to break out of a cardio rut.  Doing so has improved my overall health.

Lately, I’ve been especially excited to step into the gym because I got new sneakers!  I needed a new pair because a certain puppy chewed a hole into the mesh of my Rykas.  I’m so glad he’s not into shoes anymore.  Replacing my Ryka sneakers, though, was tough because any new pair of sneakers had to meet a number of requirements.  This new sneaker had to be lightweight, flexible, breathable, cushiony, and cute.  I’m thrilled to share that the Nike Flex Trainer 3 meets all these requirements!

The Nike Flex Trainer 3 has minimal traction making it perfect for most floor exercise routines.
It works well as a Zumba shoe.   The fit is true-to-size.

Stay tuned for a review of another favorite pair of Nike trainers that transitions well between training and running.

    I know this is an old post. But can you say how you added resistance training to your exercise routine? Thanks!

      Hey Andrea. At the time this photo was taken, I was working with a trainer who helped me develop of a full-body dynamic workout. I work with weights twice a week. That workout could include weighted squats (I'm now squatting up to 195lbs, but started with just the bar in the beginning), lunges with with a weight, pull-ups (I use the assisted machine because I still can't pull myself up on a just a bar), push presses, deadlights, Romanian deadlifts, and so on. I usually do about 4 sets with several reps each (more reps for lighter weighs). For conditioning exercises, I'll do circuits of burpees, kettle bell swings, mountain climbing planks, pushups, and so on.

      Feel free to email me for more detailed exercises. I'd be happy to share more.
