Try HIIT, Tabata, simple strength-training, or cardio workouts to work on your fitness at home!I first stumbled across Ruthie’s blog She’s Wicked Healthy after reading her column Run For Your Life on the iRunner blog (iRunner is one of the founders of the #runchat hashtag and chats on Twitter).

Hello Fine Fit Day friends!

My name is Ruthie and I blog over at She’s Wicked Healthy! I’m SO excited to be here with you today on one of my favorite spots on the internet!

I love Carly and her blog because her philosophy is so on point! She is committed to her health and works her tail off…and is somehow always smiling…amiright?!

On my teeny tiny sliver of the internet, I share my thoughts on food, fitness, and overall, living the healthiest and happiest life possible. I love to run, lift, and eat healthy, nourishing foods (all topped with Teddy peanut butter). Currently, I’m studying for my group fitness certification and I can’t wait to start teaching! I believe that nutrition and fitness are one part hardcore – you’ve got to be dedicated and do the work – and one part laid back – it’s about feeling your best and creating a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

I share plenty of workouts on my blog, and today we are rounding up a few faves that require no equipment!

Seven Do-Anywhere NO Equipment Workouts

7 Awesome NO Equipment Workouts - Blogger Ruthie from She's Wicked Healthy shares 7 of her most popular workouts! These are all at-home workouts (or anywhere!). Try HIIT, Tabata, simple strength-training, or cardio workouts to work on your fitness at home!

I started getting into no equipment workouts after moving to rural Vermont last summer, where my access to a gym was limited. Now that I have a gym close by again I still keep these in my training rotation because they’re fun and effective.

Some of the best workouts are ones in which a positive attitude, your own body, and focus are the only things you need! As much as I love the gym and lifting weights – let’s be real – life happens and we can’t always get there. Not only that, but you don’t NEED to get there in order to have an all out awesome workout.

Whether you’re short on time, traveling, a new mom, or are just looking for a challenging and effective workout, you’re in luck! These workouts are sure to get the job done.

(PS: No equipment needed = no excuses!) Just sayin’.

Believe. The Mental Aspect of Running [Guest Post]

Believe. The Mental Aspect of Running. There’s a lot of discussion about the physical aspects of training for races, of getting your body and muscles conditioned for endurance running, but what about the importance of the mental aspect of running?

Today's guest post is from the inimitable Nellie of Brooklyn Active Mama. It's no secret I think Nellie is a total bad ass. You may remember her from Fit Mama Friday, or as one of my running inspirations when I recapped my last year of running. If you don't know the story behind Nellie transforming into a runner, then you are in for a treat … [Continue reading]

What Went On in April

Fine Fit Day April Review - the best workouts, recipes, snacks, pregnancy updates, newborn baby updates (!), features from the month and more!

Well, I started off the wonderful month of April super pregnant, super cranky and almost convinced I was never going to give birth. I'm so happy I actually remembered to do a take two of the photo of me heavily pregnant with Roman, in the nursery. I remember how excited I was in that first photo, SO TERRIFIED of labor and giving birth, but … [Continue reading]

Easy Meals – Brown Beer Crockpot Beef Stew

Brown Beer Crockpot Beef Stew - With a little prep work, this delicious beef stew recipe finishes beautifully in the crockpot. Full of flavor, full of veggies and super tender, this is a family favorite!

I have a love/hate relationship with my crockpot. There, I've said it. I love it for things like soup, or chili, where I truly do just dump in the ingredients and let it work its magic. The reason you won't hear me say, "I couldn't live without my slow cooker!!" is because I think there are some recipes where you really do have to do some key prep … [Continue reading]

Welcome Baby Tanner!

Welcome Baby Tanner!

I am in love. There were times during my pregnancy when I would snuggle with Roman, or look at him and think, "How could I ever possibly love another child as much as I love him?" I'm sure this is something a lot of soon-to-be parents of more than one child wonders and now I know your heart just expands and you love just as fiercely, the both … [Continue reading]

When (and How) to Regress Your Workout

When (and how) You Should Regress Your Workout. Personal trainer insight on when (and why) it's a good idea to regress your workout and get back to basics.

In case you missed it, I wrote a guest post for Cranky Fitness on 5 Things You Should be Doing in the Gym (and 5 Things That Waste Your Time) a couple of weeks ago. I love writing these kinds of posts because I feel like there's so much misinformation and people get overwhelmed about what they should be doing to maximize their workout in the … [Continue reading]

So recently, I accidentally ordered mangoes twice when I did my grocery shopping online. Usually when I buy mangoes, they're not ripe and take forever to be ready to eat. (Just like avocados, right?) Well, of course this time, all the mangoes were perfect - juicy, ripe and ready to eat. That meant I needed to use them asap - and lucky you guys, … [Continue reading]

The Quest to Lose 10 Pounds in 6 Weeks – The Doctor Follow-Up

The doctor visit follow-up: The final results of Fran's weight loss quest to lose 10 pounds in 6 weeks (there was good news and bad news...)

Well, Fran did NOT meet his doctor's prescribed goal to lose 10 pounds in 6 weeks. If you remember last week's update, he was threatening litigation of the scales if there was a different result in the doctor's office. It turns out, he may have to sue our bathroom scale, but I don't think he'll be able to prove pain and suffering, since the … [Continue reading]
