I was at the gym yesterday, lifting weights before cardio, and someone came up to me to compliment me on my workout. They said that they don't usually see many women lifting weights at the the gym. And if they do, they're usually doing the lightest weight possible. I was complimented simply because I was … Continue reading WOTW: Lift the Chest

I started my week and kicked Monday in the butt with the following cardio and upper body workout!
Let go of your worry and stress, and try this 40 minute intense kickboxing cardio workout. You'll leave the gym feeling completely rejuvenated.
