What Makes a Good Workout?

Are you spending countless hours working out, but not seeing results? I know how you feel!

Winging it with your workouts may work at the beginning, but sooner or later your body is going to hit a plateau. And that’s where strategy comes in.

When I first started working out consistently (2011-2012), I had NO clue what I was doing. I was just saving workouts from Pinterest and reading some magazines🤦🏻‍♀️! This mistake costed me so much progress! I could have gotten the same results in 3 months instead of a year if I only I knew what I was doing!

After months, I finally figured out that a solid workout (that is going to make real changes to your body) includes all four very important components:

  • Intensity: the difficulty of the exercise (heavy weights)

  • Volume: the total reps & sets you do in a workout

  • Time under tension: how long your muscles are stimulated and challenged

  • Heart rate elevation & fluctuation: higher heart rate burns more calories per minute, when balanced with recovery time.

Mastering those 4 areas skyrocketed my results (and in turn, my clients) because I was no longer just working out to get it done...I was finally working out with an intention that gave me quicker results!


And maybe you're reading this and wondering..."Ok great, but what does "intensity, volume, time under tension, and heart rate elevation actually look like in action?"

Well, my friend, that's where I come in! All you have to do is email me, and I'll help you with a customized plan for consistent workouts, and nutrition advice! Now is the perfect time to take charge of your health, and create intention with each workout and meal! Don't wait! I'm ready to help you!

-Best Wishes,
