5 Exercises To Help With Your Pull-ups

Are you aspiring to do a pull-up? Can you do a few, but have plateaued and want to be able to do more? Have you thought, I am never going to be able to do a pull-up, why try. But damn they look awesome! If these are things you’ve said out loud or in your

Diet. Why it Matters. (Fuel Your Body Right)

Let’s be clear right from the start: when I say ‘diet’, I am not meaning eating only grapefruit, dry greens and low fat cottage cheese. Although these can be part of a healthy diet, they are not for everyone. “Diet” simply means the foods and drinks that you consume on a regular basis. I do

This Little Piggy Went To The Circus

So here’s how this all started…with a text. Actually it briefly started as a quick chat in the studio one day about 2-3 weeks ago where T (the amazing T Lawrence-Simon) said ‘can I be a guest writer sometime?’ and ‘can you write something about flexing from your pinky toes and not just your big

…And Squeeze Your Butt

If you have ever taken a class with me or trained with me at all, you have heard me say ‘Squeeze Your Butt!’ a bunch of times. Whether you were in a plank, push-up, bird-dog, or a knee-hang, or you were about to perform a salto on silks or just about any other position or

Do You Lose Your Core Engagement When You Try to Breathe?

Picture this: There you are, about to perform some sort of movement that is kind of difficult and you think to yourself, “Ok, engage my core. Check.” Maybe you’re about to invert on a trapeze or into a handstand, or maybe you are about to do some push-ups, a plank or even a squat with
