I've recently started working out more in the morning, and let me tell you ... IT IS EXHILARATING!
I used to do a Morning Show for 5 years prior coming to here, so I always worked out after work. But this whole before thing is like a cup of coffee blasted right into my veinssssss!
I've been going to the Princeton Club, so I thought it would be cool to bring one of their awesome trainers in for Women Crushing It Wednesday! Kerri Jokala, one of their trainers and group class instructors came by for it.

Here it is! THREE of my favorite moves from my killer stability ball abs workout. (Yeah, there are EIGHT more of them!) Aim to do each move for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Repeat the circuit 2-3 times. 1⃣ Stability ball pass: Pass the ball back and forth between the hands and feet. Use the sides of the feet to grip the ball. Arms and legs lower at the same time no matter where the ball is. If necessary, keep your head on the floor to avoid neck strain. 2⃣ Stability ball jackknife: Start by lying on your tummy on the ball. Slowly roll out and over the ball until only your shins are on the ball. Pull the knees in toward the chest. Repeat. 3⃣ Stability ball hamstring curls: Bonus hamstring, booty, and back work built into this an move! Place your heels in the center of the ball. It is very important to PRESS DOWN through the heels the whole time or the ball will get away from you! Squeeze the abs, back, and booty to lift the hips off the floor. Keep the hips lifted throughout the move. Slowly pull the knees in and slowly push back out. HEELS PRESSED DOWN! 😃 #abworkout #abworkoutvideos #stabilityball #swissball #killerabs #coreworkout
Not only is Kerri working at the gym, but she is also a mom, a singer, and a DJ for events!
We talked about which ladies she looks to for fitness goals, how we need to be a little more careful about the foods we're putting into our bodies, and her recent interest in leaky gut syndrome. It sounds gross, but it's actually really interesting!
