Picture this: it’s Thursday after work, you’re super exhausted from a crazy work week, and you know you still have another day to get through, and it’s time to hit the gym, but you totally don’t want to and would rather go home and hit the couch instead.

We have helped hundreds of women improve their health and fitness at KJO Coaching.
Part of improving your health is developing a solid strength training routine, which we recommend for all our clients. (And p.s., I promise it won’t make you bulky!)

At KJO Coaching, we often have clients ask what they should eat before their workouts.
We actually get that question quite frequently on social media too, so I want to address it here for you.
It’s Coach Brooke here! As a registered dietitian, this is probably the number one question...
