I had the absolute pleasure of reviewing one of the super cute Liquido Patterned Leggings. I chose the super cute Soul Sister Leggings pictured above. I love the capri length that lets my ankles breathe! The fabric is soft and fits very well. The length stops just below the calf and the waistband sits just above the hips making these super comfortable for your Pilates, dance, aerobics, strength, or yoga outfits – why not mix colours and patterns that pop, and add some spice to your workout wear? The fabric is super soft, light and has lots of stretch.



Soft, Light, Loose and Free is the best way to describe the Liquido Active Lean on Me Tank pictured above. Designed by Tiffany Cruikshank and created by Liquido Active this beautiful tank will soon become your favourite and must have item. It perfectly matches my  Liquido Leggings and is perfect for any any workout, from yoga to HiiT. The Lean On Me Tank sits above your waist line on the front side, and for the girls that do not enjoy showing much at the back this gorgeous tank will provide the coverage you are after. I love the open back, which is flirty and fun and provides a nice breeze during an extra sweaty workout.

New From Beachbody: 21 Day Fix with Autumn Calabrese



Do you want to lose up to 15 pounds in 21 days? With 21 Day Fix, simple fitness and simple eating means fast results. Easy-to-follow portion control and 30-minute workouts take the guesswork out of losing weight. 21 Day Fix comes complete with everything you need to shed pounds, feel great, and look your best. I'm sure you have heard about Beachbody's new 21 Day Fix program, if you want to learn all about it, keep reading, and stay tuned on the blog for detailed reviews of all the workouts in the program. Workouts and clean eating with proper portions is what this program is all about. 




Simple Fitness. Simple Eating. Fast Results
The most amazing part of this system is how easy Autumn makes the eating plan - and we all know that eating is 70-80% of our fitness equation. The program
 takes all the guesswork out of weight loss. There's no counting, no guessing, and no wondering. Just easy-to-follow portion control and one 30-minute workout per day. It's simple, it's fast, and it works. So stop wasting time on complicated or hard-to-stick-to diets that don't get results. If you're ready to get serious, 21 Day Fix can help you lose the weight.

The 21 Day Fix Essential Package includes 6 easy-to-follow workouts on 2 DVDs. The DVDs are packaged in a compact cardboard case that wont take up massive space in your workout area. I love that you get all the workouts on 2 DVDs which saves space and of course makes it easy to mix & match your workouts if you are looking to combine the workouts. Though of course, the system is set up to get you real results with only 30 minutes of exercise a day!

The workouts are short so you can get in, get out, and get on with your day. Autumn really packs a punch in these workouts, which is why you only need to dedicate 30 minutes - no more grueling hour long gym sessions. The workouts will challenge you at every level to help maximize fat loss. And there's always a modifier on screen to show you how to dial down the intensity without losing the benefits.

The Workouts Include:
  1. Upper Fix. Targeted resistance training helps shape your chest, back, shoulders, arms, and abs.
  2. Lower Fix. Firm and tone your entire lower body while you blast fat and burn calories.
  3. Total Body Cardio Fix. Keep your heart rate up and your metabolism revved high long after the workout is over.
  4. Cardio Fix. Get your heart pumping and your body moving as you melt away the pounds.
  5. Pilates Fix. Strengthen your core, elongate your muscles, and firm your hips and thighs.
  6. Yoga Fix. Improve your balance, flexibility, and strength as you help relax your muscles.

SIMPLE EATING
Your 21-day portion-control system contains
 seven color-coded containers and a Shakeology shaker cup. Each container delivers exactly the right portions every time, so you never eat too much or too little. Fill them up with as much food as you want—if it fits, you can eat it! The containers really make eating on the go easy. They are easy to pack for your lunch or snacks at work or on the road and easy to fill and then put on your plate for dinner with the family.

FroYo5k: #WillRunForFroyo


Was a fun race, great event, good friends, yummy yogurt, nice swag, awesome weather. Def not my best time but oh well. Im slower this season than I was last season. Im up a few lbs, my ankle is aching, my knee is a bit stiff but I am dissapointed in the slower pace. I even went out and ran a few times this year. Sniffle. Im very competitive so I was hoping to do better. But still a fun event. If the FroYo5k comes to your area- I would def recommend it. It was very well organized, had good music, good swag, and a lot of volunteers. 


While Im not a runner, I do enjoy these races. I mostly work out alone at home, so its a fun chance for group activity and to get outdoors. Our race season is running down as it is already getting warm. 


I did a sprint, to what I though was the finish line, turns out it was the 2 mile marker. Damnit. I was a little dizzy and then had another mile to go. My bad....I thought the end came really soon but then started validating it in my head "oh the water station must have been at the 1.5 mile, not the 1 mile" "oh it just went fast cuz I practiced a few runs" lol shoulda known. Will prob use my Nike app with the GPS tracker next race so that doesnt happen again.

Cathe Friedrich Ripped With HiiT Review: Circuit Upper Body

Ripped with HiiT Circuit Upper Body
Cathe Friedrich, 2014

Cathe & 4 backgrounders work out in a gym with a city view. You will need dumbbells for this 46 minute explosive plyo, HiiT cardio, and upper body strength workout. Each of the drill style exercise is performed for 8-12 reps. The 2 bonus ab routines are included on each DVD in this set. As always, there a TON of premix options and the DVD is fully chaptered.

After warming up, exercises include: squat & overhead press, swing & bow & arrow pull, jacks, low jacks, demi lunge & upper back fly, dip & shoulder work,  lat row, rapid fire double butt kick jumps, lunge & kick, squat & dumbbell to knee oblique twist, line taps, diagonal reach & press, lunge & bi curls, snow boarder 180 floor touch hops, side lunge & chop, upright row to snatch, pliet heel click jacks, skater, weighted marching sumos, split stance deadlift & front raise, plyo sump to French press, kickbacks, V hold & pec fly, burpee -pushups to air jacks, and a cooldown & stretch.

This is an advanced workout but Cathe does provide rest breaks right when you need them. Lots of fun, unique exercises. Cathe uses moderate weights for this routine as the pace is quicker to keep the heart pumping and the calories burning. Cathes instruction is, as always, excellent. Plenty of variety and easy drill style calisthenic make this a great, get in-get out-get sweaty-no dread workout. I did not receive this DVD to review.

Cathe Friedrich's Ripped with HiiT Review: Bonus Abs One & Two

Cathe Friedrich's Ripped with HiiT: Bonus Abs One & Two
Cathe Friedrich, 2014

These 2 bonus ab workouts are included on every DVD in the set & in various premixes available on the individual discs. You will need light dumbbells for workout one.

Bonus Abs One (10 min): Exercises include weighted knee pull, cross chop twists adding a knee pull, weighted V drops, weighted sit up & chop, weighted double crunch, plank jacks, elevator plank, childs pose, and a quick stretch.

Bonus Abs Two (10 min): Exercises include diagonal V fold, sit ups with ankle grabs, bicycle leg extensions, banana hold, crunches with leg shoots, side plank hip lifts, side plank arm & leg raise, superman swimmer, and a quick stretch.

I rate workout one high intermediate and workout two advanced. LOVE that they are included on each disc and in numerous premixes. Both routines are very different from each other but both will really work your core. Great instruction, form pointers, and motivation from Cathe make these go to core workouts!  I did NOT receive this DVD to review.
