Kris Jenner said “I went to bed a size 8…”

I still think fondly about my cameo appearance on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (Watch me on KUWTK ). It was an incredible afternoon in the Jenner household, I will tell you that (another blog idea!). I first met Kris Jenner when she was hosting on the “The Home Show” when I was there to do a fitness segment. Years […]

Where Have You Been, Kathy Kaehler?

Life is funny isn’t it?  I have been thinking about this blog for months – in fact years, to be exact it’s been since 2010! Sixteen years after the very first blog was ever written by a guy named Justin Hall, damn him!  Really…blogs have been around that long? Authoring seven health and fitness books didn’t pose an issue, I […]

Drop and Give Me 20!

By Karissa Winkler

I think if most people were asked what 3 things they could do to be healthier, I bet they would say,” eat better, drink more water and exercise more.”  Those are definitely 3 very important parts of staying healthy, but if you ask me, push-ups should be their own category.

Drinking Water Tips

By Karissa Winkler

Can you honestly say that drinking the daily-recommended amount comes easily to you? If you can, then you deserve a gold star.

Wake up AWESOME!

Get Ready for #KKReset & #KKBam!

Taking time to cleanse your body can be one of the most rewarding experiences for your health and well-being. It can simply jump start or “Reset” a new way of being in the world.

I’ve Been Wearing a Fat Suit.

For the last six years I have been on a trip that I like to call “Let’s take a pause, while I put on my fat suit”  It is fascinating when I recall the reckless years of running around, eating what I wanted to, staying up late, exercising one day and getting the results the next.  To think back then […]

Got Protein?

Do you catch yourself saying “eat your protein”?  As a mom, cook and trainer I look to protein first when it comes to meal planning, snacking, sandwich making or when someone is starving and standing in front of the fridge.

Should you be focused on it?  Does it make a difference how much you eat?  Absolutely and here is why.
