Achieving a Personal Goal

By | Cardio Workouts, Uncategorized

Hi everyone, it’s Katie C., one of Dustin’s blog contributors.  When reading the posts on Dustin’s blog, the posts that have been most inspiring to me are the ones in which people commit to a goal and openly talk about the process, the challenges, and the final outcome.  Recent examples include Dustin’s commitment to the fitness modeling competition and Shelly’s completion of her first 5K. I always read these posts and tell myself that I want to do something like that.  I have good intentions of fulfilling my goal, but it usually ends there.  Well today ends my streak of reading these great stories but not taking action.

For me, my personal physical challenge has always been to compete in some sort or running event or triathlon. I love participating in physical events that bring people together (including bike rides and snowshoe races), but anything related to running has been something I shy away from.  Today I decided it was time to actually accomplish my goal, so I signed up for the 5K Jingle Bell Run for Arthritis.   Read More

Hamstring and Butt Toning Exercise

By | Blog, Uncategorized

Today in the video we talk about having a workout buddy.  If you are looking for a great way to be accountable with others under the guidance of a highly qualified trainer, check out Madison Fit Fun Bootcamps.

The exercise you are about to see is one of the toughest and most intense exercises you can do to target the hamstrings.  In most people, the hamstring is underdeveloped compared to the quadricep.  This will require a partner, so grab your husband, wife, or friend and give this one a shot!  If you are looking for a great butt lifting exercise, you should definitely add this to the list!

I also wanted to give a HUGE thanks to John Hall for all the videos he did with me.  I really hope I can get back down to Chicago or have him to come up to do some more video.  Be sure to check out his website.
