Dear Coach: More Favorites?

Dear Coach, Got any more fun favorites to share?

-Fitness Fan


Fitness Fan,

There are always more things to like when it comes to fitness! Here’s a couple more of my favorites (and not so favorites)…

-SPORTS BRAS! Is this a weird thing to love? I love that I can buy them for $5 at TJMaxx. I mean really? I’ll take 10….

-CORE! I LOVE ab exercises. One of my favorite feelings is when my abs are sore from a previous workout and just me laughing even makes the muscles ache a bit.

IMG_4503-LEGS! Strength training my lower body is a fave. I love squats. Sumo squats. Squats with overhead press. Goblet squats. Front squats. I love it.

-SUMMERCan I count a season as a favorite when it comes to fitness? Well I am. Spring (and summer) is my favorite time to year be exercising outside.  The temperatures are perfect, everything is coming to life again.  After all the snow is gone, you have a much greater appreciation for how the sun feels on your skin and how you can actually start to sweat again because you’re finally thawing out after a long, cold winter!  Who could pass up that view?!

Dislikes: 

-HEADPHONES. I’m always yanking the wire out of my ear or iPod by accident and disrupting my gym flow. Although I found a great pair that hooks into my ears so they stay in place, I still can’t stand the feeling of ear buds in my ear when I start to seriously sweat.

What do you think?  Have a different question for me? Comment!
