1. Stressed

    When I was in grad school, someone once told me that the work isn’t necessarily going to be harder or that much more challenging. But, what grad school is really all about is how many hoops you can jump through at once all while balancing 10 different plates on every limb of your body. Somehow, wedding planning feels very much the same. Everything that needs to get done isn’t hard by any means…Read More

  2. Injuries Happen

    ` I don’t deal with injuries well. I quite frankly never have. I’ve never liked going to the doctor, taking unnecessary medications or having to slow down. The other side of this is the fact that I have been plagued with back problems my whole life. At 13 I had to quit gymnastics due to back pain... Not that I was any good at it, but I was devastated. I deal with injuries by ignoring or avoidi…Read More

  3. Momentum vs. Motivation

    June was a crazy month for me. I left my job of 3 years where I worked from home to go to a steady 9-5 corporate gig here in Denver. I traveled back to Boston for my bridal shower and bachelorette party which turned into a hectic but fun 6 days away. And truly the crunch of wedding planning has hit as well. I swear any minute Matt and I have together we are making some kind of decision about the w…Read More

  4. Progress Report: Mosquito Bites to A Cups

    A few weeks ago I was in Sara’s Friday morning  weightlifting class with just one other Titanium Fitness Client, Fran. Though I love big classes, I also love it when classes are small and I can connect with just one other person. Sara was running late, so Fran took the lead and starting getting us warmed up. Though I can’t quite remember how we got on the topic, we started discussing gym prog…Read More

  5. Shake it Off

    A couple weeks ago my future in-laws flew in from Boston to spend a long weekend with Matt and I here in Denver. I was pleasantly surprised when the first words out of my future-Mother-In-Law’s mouth to me were “Wow! Kristy you look great!” This was super encouraging. I’ve been working out 6-7 days a week, trying to keep my diet in check and it simply felt great to know that all this effor…Read More

  6. Cake, Carb and Booze Free

    When I agreed to write this Blog for Titanium Fitness, I also made an agreement with myself to be forthright and honest. The last thing I want to do is paint an unrealistic perfect picture of a transformation.  It would be too misleading and simply not true. On the other hand, I want to be sure that what I am writing is not going to sound completely hopeless nor make this into an outlet for endle…Read More

  7. Crunch Time!!

    Hello! My name is Kristy and I will be your Titanium Fitness Center Client Blogger for the foreseeable future. Anthony and Beth are letting me take over and speak (well, blog) the truth about working out from the client's perspective. (Yes, it’s real easy to tell someone to do 50 burpees, but actually doing 50 burpees is a whole different story.) On top of this, I am getting married in 4 months…Read More

  8. She-hulking It

    There aren't very many people in the "normal world" who say they actually want to gain weight. I'm not really one for conformity, so clearly I don't (and would never want to) live in a "normal' world. "Are you cray cray?! Why on earth would you want to be heavier? You're going to look like a man!!" Yup, that's exactly how it works: you lift weights for 3 months, stop doing cardio and BOOM! Instant…Read More

  9. Moving Mountains

    Sometimes, that's what it feels like. And by it, I mean everything: career, relationships, cleaning, homework, cooking, yard work, going to the post office, flossing...and especially losing weight and/or getting in shape (often one does not coincide with the other...but I digress). Sometimes the task at hand is too big, it's just too much to even think about. How can I lose those 20 lbs I've put o…Read More
