4 Exercises You Can Do On A Treadmill That Don’t Involve Running

4 Exercises You Can Do On A Treadmill That Don’t Involve Running

As you all know running is my absolute favorite exercise to do so needless to say my treadmill gets used quite frequently. That being said I also realize that a plain run while staring at a wall can quickly become monotonous for some especially when you’re having a bad run day. Sometimes we just need a few minutes of something different to break up the usual treadmill workout. These four exercises are something I typically throw in at the end…

How To Run Like A Pro: 5 Tips For Absolute Beginners

How To Run Like A Pro: 5 Tips For Absolute Beginners

Running is without a doubt a sport that can be incredibly rewarding, but when you’re just starting it can also be incredibly difficult. I’ve come up with a list of things I wish I had known when I first started running.  1. Run for time before you run for mileage.  So many people start running and say “I want to run X amount of miles each day” with the intention of training for a race. While this is a very…

Spicy Peanut Curry Tofu with Rice Noodles

Spicy Peanut Curry Tofu with Rice Noodles

Hey guys! So for the last few days I have been hard core craving some Asian inspired food.

10 Easy To Prep Healthy Snacks

10 Easy To Prep Healthy Snacks

Guys I LOVE snack. In fact I almost rather just graze all day long than eat actual meals which is not really a good thing honestly. These snacks are things I try to keep around to help steer me away from all the not so healthy food choices that are available.  1. Unsalted nuts (almonds, cashews, etc.) 5-10 almonds are my go to when I want something quick and crunchy. Raw nuts are the best but if you absolutely have…
