My New Love: Obstacle Events

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt […]

My Love/Hate Relationship with the Warped Wall

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” I remind myself of that quote from Theodore Roosevelt all the time. I think it resonates with me because I so often don’t try new experiences until I have it mastered. I don’t want to go to a movie until I’ve read the book […]

Guest Post: What to Expect at Bootcamp

It’s a given that we love bootcamp and all things related to fitness, so we decided to reach out and get another perspective. Suzanne Little was kind enough to submit this guest blog and we’re thrilled that we aren’t the only ones excited about bootcamp. So you’ve been thinking about doing a bootcamp class but […]

Why I Work Out

Most people would probably guess that I work out just because I love it and, while I do love it, that’s not always the case. Let’s get real, it’s not that fun sucking wind, sweating profusely and pushing your body. It’s uncomfortable, it hurts at times and it’s definitely not glamorous. At the same time, […]

Week of Full Body Workouts

With several of our ladies from boot camp away on vacation, we decided to create a full week of body weight workouts you can do while on vacation, no fitness equipment necessary. I love body weight exercises! They’re fast, effective and can be done anywhere. Vacation is a great time to rest, relax and try […]

Weekend Workout SUP

When you’re a newborn photographer, you see a pretty basket and think, ‘I could fit a baby in that!’ And when you’re a fitness trainer and you try a fun new item like a stand up paddle board, you think, ‘I could create a workout for that!’ Several years ago when I first tried SUP […]

The Benefits of Working Out in the Morning

Teresa and I love to work out any time of day, but when it’s almost 100 degrees outside, we’re both thankful for our early morning boot camp workouts. The fresh early morning air, the birds singing, and the beautiful sunrise are all perks of early morning bootcamp. Plus, it feels great to have a workout […]

Weekend Workout – Arms & Core

  Staying fit and healthy is a lifestyle, even on the weekend when you’re not at our fitness boot camp. Here’s an interval workout that will help you burn calories all day while adding definition and strength to your arms, core and glutes. Designed by certified fitness trainer’s Shelly Pincock and Teresa Wymetalek. No special […]

Creating the Best Version of Yourself with Boot Camp Workouts

Teresa and I love cross training and multi-sport activities and events. Boot camp is the perfect workout to prepare us for our weekend adventures. With so much variety built into every workout and workouts that include strength training, cardio, flexibility and plyometrics, we always feel well prepared. Read on for more reasons why boot camp […]

From Pavement to Paintball: Making Time to Work Out

It’s the number one reason I hear for not working out and, trust me, I get it. I have three boys, a dog, work, and an endless to-do list like everyone else. Yes, there will be days when you really don’t have time to work out, but I still say that we need to MAKE […]

May the 4th be with you workout

  While we both love to celebrate life, I highly doubt Shelly shares my fascination with the Rebel Alliance and all things related to Star Wars. You’d never guess it, though, with our Star Wars workout this morning as we celebrated May 4th a little early. It was totally geeky, but it got our heart […]

No Flowers On This Mother’s Day Gift List

I recently heard that flowers are the most desired gift for Mother’s Day. Not for this mom. Flowers are pretty and all, but they die and I’d prefer something I get to enjoy longer and shows a little more thought. Gift shouldn’t be about the money spent, but the thought behind them. I’ve put together a list […]

Get SMART with Goals

Teresa and I wanted to share some of our SMART goals with you; it was tough choosing because we have so many favorites! Teresa’s Goal I run quite a bit, but haven’t really been running with a focus for a couple of years now. My personal goal is actually an old one, to qualify for […]

What no one tells you about your goal weight

…it’s going to lead you to another very important, lifelong goal! Part two, of sharing our goals, is one we think almost everyone can relate to. It’s not as fun as training for an event, not nearly as popular as the topic of weight loss, but we think it’s just as important. We hope that by sharing […]
