Finding a partner in life who shares similar passions to yours is key. Lucky for me, Chris and I have many similar interests. One of the most important ones is that we are both committed to living an active and fit lifestyle. Chris’ love of fitness goes beyond his own personal reasons – it’s also a part of his job. As you guys know, Chris is an Active Duty Soldier in the Army and is expected to maintain a certain level of physical fitness. So in our house, anything that combines fitness and the armed services is a win.
Mark Twight is one of Hollywood’s “go to” trainers and is also the founder of Gym Jones (with his wife Lisa), a strength and conditioning facility. He’s pretty noted for helping condition cast members of movies like “300″ (2007), “Repo Men”(2010), “Man of Steel”(2013), and “300: Rise of an Empire”(2013). I have to say …. the characters are pretty ripped in those movies so he must be doing something right
He goes WAY beyond Hollywood though and also teaches climbing, nutrition, and fitness to Special Operations Command (SOCOM) operators. Basically he works with some bad asses in the military.
How does this connect to the Armed Services? Well, like Clark Kent, Soldiers of the National Guard have to be ready for anything at a moments notice. Not only to they deploy to war zones, they also are activated when crises arise back home like the tornadoes in Oklahoma or Superstorm Sandy. These men and women are Citizen Soldiers who are ready when their neighbors need them.

What I like about the workouts is that they require minimal equipment and can easily be done at home (depending on what you have) or at any gym. The workouts themselves can be tailored for beginners and advanced alike. While I haven’t had a chance to try the workouts yet, I am familiar with all the moves and feel confident that you can be successful with them. After showing Chris the month of workouts we both are stoked to try them out soon!
Do you want to be ripped like Henry Cavill? Because I am thinking that Chris does ;)

Things sure are moving along right? I swear that your second pregnancy moves at lightning speed compared to the first! Probably has something to do with a toddler running around? ;) We had a great weekend over here celebrating Father’s Day and my 26th birthday. More on that this week though! Until then, it’s time… more

After a no good very bad first trimester I am thrilled to be starting to feel a little bit more like myself. Taking two months off exercising though is tough. I am ready to get back to the gym but definitely need a little bit of structure. Enter Best Body Bootcamp. I… more

**I received a sample pack from EVOL foods for free. No other compensation was provided. All opinions are my own. The last couple of months have been a little tricky in the food department. With the pregnancy came extreme all-day sickness and absolutely nothing sounded good. This resulted in me not cooking dinner for… more
