kona-tanning-katie-quinn-learn-airbrush-spray-tan-abs-six-pack-training.JPG

Remember those T-shirts you'd always see along the boardwalk at the beach, that had a bikini-clad woman's super-ripped body painted on them?  Or the man's ridiculously muscular physique?  You could put the T-shirt on, and it looked like it was your body!  I used to be fascinated by those, and that level of airbrushing ability just blew my mind as a kid!  The artists literally had no guide to work with, only a blank T-shirt canvas.  Imagine the talent that goes into something like that. … [Read more...]

Doing This Helped Me Get My High School Track Legs Back in a Jiffy

kona-tanning-katie-quinn-running-backward

I love including segments of backward running in my workouts: about 100 feet forward running, and then 100 feet backwards, and I do this for as long as me and my dog can stand it!  According to RunAddicts.net, running 100 steps backward is the same as running 1,000 steps forward, and that going backward burns a fifth more calories than running forward! Other benefits to running backward: You can still run while you are injured:  backward running can be done whether you have a groin, … [Read more...]
