A Kettle What?

Kettlebells may have an odd name and look kind of funny - sort of like a cannonball with a handle - but used correctly they can actually be very useful (and fun).

Here are three great reasons to try them, what to do, and some photos to help.

Finding Your Fit

So, I wrote a book! It is called Finding Your Fit. Needless to say, I am pretty excited! The book hits stores October 1st, 2016. I feel like a kid getting ready for Christmas; I am counting down the days until I can walk into Indigo and say "Where would I find Kathleen Trotter's new book?" I am assuming the answer will be "In the health and wellness section," but maybe I will get lucky and it will be on one of the "staff recommendation" tables. Fingers crossed!

SHHHH Want to know a Secret ?

So I'm sure most of us have heard of "The Secret". The book is no secret but its idea really does work! There is one thing they don't like to focus on though and that's the work part.

Kathleen approved "do anywhere" workouts - the cottage edition!

This is part three - and final - of my "do anywhere" workout series! The main take-away from all three installments is - "don't use the pull of relaxing on a dock, traveling, or drinking on a patio as an excuse to become a sloth! It is possible enjoy summer AND maintain your fitness! The key is to have a few workouts in your back pocket that you can literally do anywhere — in a hotel room, in your living room, or even on the dock at the cottage".

In part one I shared the "joy" of tabata intervals. In part two I outlined my "10 by 1 minute" workout and how to do "11's".

For this final installment I have developed two cottage specific workouts; one cardio workout for the lake, and one interval / strength workout to do on the dock. Don't have a cottage? No problem, try the cardio workout in a pool, or do the interval / strength workout in your backyard or hotel gym.
