Starting A Journey to Better Wellness

August 8, 2017

 

First of all, thank you for visiting our website! Some of you may have been to my other website, bodybybrittany.com, which I used primarily while I had my personal training business. Now, I am happily employed full-time at the Kennedy Space Center along with my boyfriend, Troy. Employed now, instead of just working for myself, I can switch focus from accruing clients to simply sharing wellness advice and inspiration with Troy, who's motivated me to better do so.

 

Sharing the same passion to promote wellness, Troy and I have decided to start this website and a YouTube channel. Also, having gotten several requests to share my weekly class routines, this will be a great resource to provide that. So, we will start by sharing the week’s worth of work-outs I had my classes do last week and this week's. Knowing you (even those of you who attend my classes at the Kennedy Space Center on a regular basis) may not know what all of these exercises are without examples, we have added links to our YouTube videos for demonstration.

*"Sally Up" is a song you can find on YouTube, then perform the exercises according to the what the song tells you (move into the "up" part of the leg lift/squat/plank surrender when it says, "Sally Up" then the down portion when it says, "Sally Down."
