I think I’d be remiss if I forgot tell you guys that yesterday was my 7 year anniversary with my best friend. 
Seven years of bliss. 
Seven years of give and take.
He moved me across the country.
I made him move back.
He puts food on the table.
I eat the food he puts on the table.
He gave me babies.
I got super fit for him after the babies.
I got a tattoo.
He ….needs to get a flippin’ tattoo!
He got me a homebrew Kombucha kit!!
I got him…nothing (eek).
He makes me smile.
I make him smile.
It works. 
Really well.
Here’s to a bajillion more babies, tattoos, smiles and years, babe!
On to TT…

The theme for this week’s Tuesday Trainer is KICKBOXING/TAEBO!! 


I’ll be honest – aside from using some kicks and punching sequences in my classes and watching Billy Blank’s Taebo DVDs, I don’t really know that much about martial arts and kickboxing.  I know that when I incorporate kickboxing into my Bootcamps (specifically weighted punches), my heart rate skyrockets!  Good thing we have Christin as a “Contributing Trainer” to give us some tips!

Christin’s Tips for Martial Arts (video below):

  • All moves come from the core.
  • Make sure that every punch/kick is coming STRAIGHT out from the body.
  • Fight an invisible enemy.

I think the invisible enemy thing is VITAL.  And I’d add sound effects to the list – you need to make an Incredible Hulk sound as your strike.  And aim for the gullet.  Gets ‘em every time.

  1. Happy anniversary!!!!!!! Yay!!! You both are too cute. Cheers to many years to come. Sorry I missed out this week. I couldn’t get it together last minute as usual, love ya!

  2. Happy Anniversary! You two are a good looking couple! I always wanted to try kickboxing style workouts, but didn’t want to embarrass myself in the gym, this seems like it would suit me well! :)

  4. Happy Anniversary! I have to admit I don’t know much about kickboxing either. I did do Tae Bo back in the day but I don’t remember much other than kicking and punching alot!
