I took a Refine Method class yesterday, and I can say this is just the class I was looking for to add to my routine. It’s that great combination of HIIT and Circuit Training that really allows you to build strength and endurance. It really is that workout i’ve been looking for to add to my workout repertoire. 

After a 10 minute warm-up, Refine has 35 minutes of power cardio segments spiking the heart rate to near 90% of its max, combined with strength segments both in a high intensity circuit training format. there are 2 or 3 segments of each consisting of 2-3 exercises each. Things like medicine ball throws, planks, burpees, lunges, etc. All of this is finished off with 5 minutes of ab specific work, then 10 minutes of stretching. 

It really was a tough and super efficient workout. And it went by extremely fast. Not without leaving me drenched, guzzling water, and praying for air. It was amazing.

Now do i believe in her stance on bar workouts? Not at all. My opinion doesn’t come from being bias, but from me having seen people’s body change from bar, including myself. First, 80% of your body is how you eat. if you don’t have a proper diet then you can’t expect any workout to be the miracle answer.  Also, there is a lot of strength and anaerobic activities in barre workouts that build muscle and what has given me and others an athletic form for the past year. But that’s because we’ve taken ourselves to that uncomfortable place. In any workout, you get out of it what you put in. And also, even moderate-intensity activity is proven to burn excess fat (even more than HIIT workouts during the activity), so it’s better than doing nothing. But HIIT workouts like Refine have the benefit of burning fat and carbs throughout the day by boosting your metabolism

Anyway, Refine is a must for me now in my week. I just wish they re-opened a downtown location.

My very first swim ever was at 31 years of age, in Puerto Rico, in August 2014. Better late than never. 

I used this Amy Cuddy Ted Talk as the theme for my Bar Method Class today.

Focused in on posture and engaging the postural muscles and creating ‘Power Poses’ throughout the workout:

  • Standing Seat Facing the bar and holding onto it with a wide underhanded grip
  • High curl, letting go and placing your hands on your waist with elbows out to the side, also letting and raising their arms into a ‘pride’ position. 

I got to teach them an awesome class while giving them some extra confidence to tackle the week.

"Cheesy" Turkey Bacon Cauliflower Biscuits

  • 4 Cups Cauliflower Florets (finely chopped)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (or to taste depending on how cheesy you want to go)
  • Uncured Turkey Bacon Cooked and finely chopped
  • Olive Oil for sautéing 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Use a Food Processor to finely chop the cauliflower

Oil a pan and sauté the cauliflower until moist. The add eggs, almond flour, nutritional yeast, and turkey bacon. Continue to sauté for a few minutes. 

Drop clumps of the mixture onto a baking sheet. Place in the oven and cook until golden. Can take 45 minutes or more. 

Remove and let cool.

(Because it’s cauliflower, its a lot more crumbly than a regular biscuit so be cautious when you are picking it up. I used a fork to eat it. It’s still awesome. Next time i’m going to try adding guar gum or xanthum gum to maybe bind it more)
