XTREME MAKEOVER - These women are amazing!

If you are following this blog please help me cheer these gals on.  They absolutely rocked their group workout this morning!  Energies were high and with obvious determination they powered though RIP TIDE.  In the coming hours I am sure they will be icing, foam rolling and stretching!  It's a good thing we covered those 3 very important revovery items. :)  If things continue as they are now there is no doubt what so ever that goals will be met and every one of these ladies will continue their journey.   Check ya later and have a great weekend!

Although this was our first session these women were impressive. Following body comps and introductions the majoritiy participated in an Intro To Kettlebell Session.

FB groups allow us to break out with our coaching for some individual team coaching.  It hasn't happened yet but I suspect a bit of team competition is in our future.

Semi-split circuit!

So as I have recently posted, I have been sticking to a three day a week full body workout with cardio days mixed in. Still, as I am such a big proponent of mixing workout up, today's and tomorrows workout have been changed.
