Thank you so much to all the participants of this Sunday's Spartan Race Bootcamp! We had a great time perfecting our rope climbs, monkey bar skills and kettlebell carries to prepare for this Saturday's 10 mile Spartan Super Race in Vernon, New Jersey. We leaped onto boxes of all sizes, honed our squat and pushup form and got real sweaty doing everybody's favorite -- burpees.
It was great to see everyone cheering each other on and giving 100% during our cardio blast at the very end, a five minute rotation between the ladder climb, rower, skiier, rope pull and military style high knee run. The special guest of the day was my mom, Sharlene, who at age 52, knocked it out of the park. I was incredibly proud.
Check out this video we put together featuring Jess, Alexa, Cassia, Emily, Michelle, and of course, my mother. Thank you ladies for making this such a fun event! And thanks to my stepdad Dave for videotaping and my best friend Joel for editing! Stay tuned for the next bootcamp coming up soon!
When I was fourteen years old, I went to a sleepaway camp for kids pursuing the arts. My best friend Adrienne and I took every dance class we could and were die-hard followers of the strength and conditioning class taught by the camp's meanest instructor, a man named Peanut. We did hundreds of situps and bicycle crunches in pursuit of having teenage girl six packs. They never came.
Today, I rarely do situps or crunches and am very proud of the croptop midriff I have. I lift heavy, I do windshield wipers hanging from the bar, and I hold myself upside down on my hands. It's safe to say my abs have never looked better. I was excited to show Adrienne my six pack when I visited her in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. And I am incredibly honored by the article she wrote about me and Small But Mighty. You can click here to read it in full!
