Friday Five: Kettlebells & Kombucha

1. All Things Kettlebell


I’ve been training (both myself and clients) with kettlebells a LOT lately. I absolutely love them for workout finishers -  like this one – single legged exercises, swings (always swings<—my form has improved since this post!) offset lunges and squats, and of course get ups. Love. Expect more posts on kettlebells coming up Open-mouthed smile

2. This Lentil Dip from Hope Hummus


I’m officially obsessed, and it’s surely going to become a staple on my grocery list.  Aside from being super tasty, it’s made from only 5 whole food ingredients, and is organic.

3. Home Sickness. I’ve been feelin’ it this week. Mostly, just my peeps. I really, really, really miss my people there. My family and my friends. I’m not sure how I got so lucky to have the family I do, and make the friends I have there, and I really miss ‘em.

4. Zeel Kombucha


It’s a Kombucha company here in Boulder that makes some of the best kombucha I’ve ever tasted! I connected with Josh, who started Zeel, this week and dropped off some KIND bars to him and his team of THREE. I was so impressed by his “zeal” (pun intended) for making quality kombucha. My favorite? Grampa’s Tonic, which has citrus, and I think he said rosemary and sage.  I know some people don’t like the taste of kombucha, and just drink it for the probiotic benefits, but I think it’s delish!

5. My Name in Print!


The community I live in has its own magazine, Zona Prospect, and I was featured in the magazine for December! I met with the writer a couple months ago, and she interviewed me about life in Colorado and personal training. I got it last night, and turned 50 shades of red – I think it’s equally exciting and embarrassing Smile Gah!

Today’s a pretty light day. I’ve got a client to train, a lifting workout, teaching spin, and then touring the Bhakti Chai brewery! Should be a fun day Open-mouthed smile

What’s your favorite piece of fitness equipment?

Do you get embarrassed easily?
