Hurdling 5 foot walls. Check. Climbing 14 foot ropes. Check. Running hills with air filled clouds of dirt. Check. Crawling under barbwire through thick mud on your elbows. Check. Check. You may be saying, "WHY?!?". But for me and my team, we just say "BRING IT". There's something about seeing what your body can do, if it'll cooperate, if you actually can run up a slippery wall without skinning up your knees (chances are slim). It's a sport that takes endurance, power, strength, stamina, mindset, and a love of getting dirty.
On our latest training day, my partner, Jules and I worked on increasing our distance and pace for the next race, San Francisco's Urbanathlon. The race is 3 times longer than our typical event, but we are eager. Coincidently we both showed up in our Oakley Women Continuity Tops. They are so perfect for this type of training that needs a supportive fabric, and when we reach up for pull-ups or slide down hills on our back, these tops won't slip or move. In addition, the colors are super fun with neon yellow, electric blue, purple, black, orange and more. Not to mention it went perfectly with my Oakley Miss Conduct eyewear, a MUST for training because they have total coverage, and protect my eyes from the splashing mud.
It's a thumbs up from these gals and our Oakley Women's gear!

I'm still surprised how many people I meet in my classes that have never heard of suspension training, much less tried it. It's been just shy of 10 years since former Navy Seal, Randy Hetrick introduced his industry-changing concept to the fitness world. The first time I saw that yellow and black strap hanging from the pull-up bars at my gym, I did what most people do, I stared at it and kept walking. It wasn't until a year later that I actually touched it, used it and immediately loved it. As a trainer that puts a ton of people through workouts weekly, I'd missed being challenged in my own workouts. After my first session, I was sore for days. (YES, that's a good thing).
Since that first taste of TRX in 2008, I've started my own studio programs and began group classes for other gyms exclusively of suspension training in the SF Bay Area, always ready to sing its praises. What's so great about TRX you ask? Suspension Training is all bodyweight resistance exercises which develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. You can tie up to a door jam in your hotel room, to a fence at the park.....to a coconut tree on vacation (yup I've done that). But that's not all. My favorite thing about this bright yellow beauty is that you're never working just 1 muscle. Because of the angle of your body and the use of gravity, a ton more muscles are engaged, which means quicker results and an amazing TRX body.
I recently got VIP access to the TRX San Francisco headquarters, thanks to Dan McDonogh, TRX's Group Training & Development Manager. Not only did I get to peek around and meet the people behind this innovative tool, but I got a spectacular rooftop workout with some of the crew. Dan, mixed a few suspension training exercise with Rip Trainer (below Dan and I are doing the Rip Trainer Pitchfork) to guarantee either that I wouldn't be able to walk the next day, or that I would fall in love with TRX even more (both are true).
If you're ready for a challenge, if you're needing a change, or if you are just plain curious.....go ahead and walk up to the TRX in your gym and fall in love with your new workout.

We all have days when our legs feel like lead, those times even thinking about a five-mile run hurts. I had a day just like that recently so I thought of what I would say to a client that came to me with the same complaint. The answer, the No-Workout Workout. Jump on your choice of cardio, anything you can stomach. Spend 5 minutes getting the blood flowing. Move on to another cardio for another 5 minute. Continue changing cardio for your time allotted. Chances are by the second 5-minute set you'll be feeling ready to kick it up a notch. I chose the 6 cardio methods in this photo and felt great at the end. Ready for more!
