What is Kat Eating? Vol. 4

Time to bust out the grill and make some kebobs! Nothing says 'hello spring!' like the sound of kids playing outside, longer  (and warmer) days and the scent of someone cooking something delicious on the grill. Over the past few weeks in central NC, mother nature has been teasing us with signs of spring. And, […]

4 Keys to Successfully Getting Ripped

It seems to me that a lot of times when a person finally hits that breaking point and decides to buckle down and get to the gym, they are often motivated by getting ripped, like mega #strongAF ripped.     So they set themselves down a path of either getting some knowledgable looking person from the […]

Walking Unicorns

Indian Clubs are great tools for shoulder, elbow, and wrist health. Really, they are fantastic for building a stronger and healthier nervous system. The circular patterns, the rhythm, and the coordination they promote are like candy for the brain. Indian Clubs can be a great way to keep the mind mentally agile while keeping the […]

You’re Either Really Strong or You're Lazy

This one time, at kettlebell camp... This is a true story, to the best of my recollection which means it’s close to accurate. Several years ago I was at a kettlebell training certification, this particular one lasted four days. The days can be quite long. Learning, training, practicing, and strategizing your survival for six to […]

Carry On

When is the last time you saw a fresh little, wobbly headed baby?  They seem fragile, although they are more resilient than all get out. When a baby is born it has the ultimate strength training regimen: it trains daily to gain control of it’s big ole head. This is no small feat of strength […]

Can You Design Your Body?

What if you could design the body you wanted to have? Would you build it? If you could create a body that suited your desires - one that was strong, mobile, flexible, resilient, would you do it? If you could have a body that felt amazing, one that was filled with energy, joy, and a […]

Exercising After Injury

You had an injury or surgery and now you want to get back to life. Where to begin our re-entry to the gym (or your sport)? A large portion of us let fear of pain or re-injury delay that last big jump back into the gym or onto the field/court.  Sometimes we need some guidance […]

How Do I Get Winter Sports Ready?

Let's take a moment and think about a topic that you probably would rather not think about.  The risk you take on participating in a winter sport. Whether it’s sledding or aggressive backcountry skiing, the risks are everywhere! Heck, even walking in winter weather has it’s hazards! Having a healthy appreciation, or an awareness, of […]

What is Kat eating? Vol. 2

In our house, if we don’t meal plan, we don’t eat. Okay, maybe it’s not that dramatic but it’s pretty close; things just get weird. To prevent this from happening, every week my husband and in-laws get together and talk about what the menu for the upcoming week will look like. While we split cooking […]

What is Kat eating? Vol. 1

Your last nerve-  The difference between sciatica and back pain

Are you on your last nerve? So you have pain in your lower back and butt.  Maybe it’s radiating into your thigh, your calf, or even all the way into your foot.  Is it sciatica? Or is it just something in your back that is radiating into your leg?  Should you wait it out or […]

Kat's Must-Try Thanksgiving Go-To's

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday of the year. It’s the one time of year I normally get together with my extended family, we eat until we can’t think (thank goodness for elastic waistbands), laugh until we cry and just have the best time. Before my grandmother passed away a few years ago, we always […]

Do you meditate? If not, it might be something you want to at least consider. Before you walk away, hear me out. You may have some reservations about it, I understand. I was once warned of it’s 'dangers' many moons ago, but as it turns out, those warnings were a bit misguided. I think the […]

Three Reasons to Crawl that You’ve Never Thought About

I’m a fan of crawling. If you’ve read any of my books or seen many of my movement videos, you have probably guessed that. But there is a good reason to see the beauty in that childish movement because it is literally the miracle movement. It ties all of you together, all of you, spirit, […]

Play Like Your Life Depends on it (because it does!)

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing” -George Bernard Shaw   When was the last time you TRULY PLAYED?    I have observed that many adults have simply forgotten how to play, or they don’t value it. This is especially evident in the gym. Adults seem to […]

The Freedom of Fasting (But not the fasting you're thinking of)

Have you ever learned a huge lesson but it didn’t “take” at the time? I once learned a valuable lesson, one that I should have altered my life from, but I allowed my habits to overcome the lesson I slipped back into my ways of doing things. Here’s what I mean… I use my phone’s […]

Navigating Unchartered Waters

Oh, hi there, I'm Coach Laura from OSi and like many people around the world right now, I’m at home. My entire family has been home, roughly, for almost 7 weeks. I’ve cooked a zillion meals, done more dishes than I want to think about, and plenty of other repetitive tasks I don’t exactly enjoy […]

While Cinco de Mayo and Taco Tuesday may have already passed, tacos still remain a bright spot in our current times and we're going to keep riding the taco train.
