TRX Training Day + Booty Burning Workout + Premier Protein Banana Nut Bread Smoothie

Last Sunday I went to a TRX Group Training class so I can start working with clients and classes on the TRX suspension trainer.  I have always wanted to learn more about how to use the TRX for workouts and for clients.  I love that in order to use it properly you have to activate your core.  It was a great class, and we even did a workout.  I was so sore the next day.  I was able to get the certification because of my ambassadorship with Premier Protein.  As a trainer ambassador I received a grant to fund my continuing education.  Since I am wanting to get back in to a gym teaching classes and eventually training clients it always helps to add certifications to my arsenal, and makes me more valuable to potential clients and to the gym I want to work for.  

Actually next week I will start teaching a group fitness class at a gym in my area.  I am really excited to get back into a gym and doing some teaching.  My class is called Shred and we will be doing strength and cardio circuits to burn fat and build lean muscle. I have been busy getting my workouts together and I can't wait to share how it goes!

Are you ready for a Booty Burning Workout?  I love working my glutes and I notice a difference when I am wearing leggings, which lets be honest, is all the time!  Now that shorts season is coming I have been adding an extra leg day and an extra arms & shoulder day too!  Ready for a great workout?  Try this one and let me know if your buns were burning!!  *Disclaimer: Remember I am a personal trainer, but not your personal trainer.  Be sure to get the green light from your doctor before starting this or any exercise program.  This is a general workout and may not be suitable for everyone.

Now that you got your workout in you are ready for your Protein shake!  This recipe is one of my favorites, because I love banana bread.  Premier Protein is going to be launching a new flavor of pre-made shakes Bananas & Cream...and I was sent a few to try before they hit the shelves of Sam's club on April 5th!  My husband loves this shake the best so far, I think it is delish (but I am a chocolate girl at heart).  It is great to have one more flavor to add in the mix and to share with my clients.
Here is the recipe:
Premier Protein Banana Nut Bread Smoothie
1 container Premier Protein Bananas & Cream (or vanilla if you don't have banana)
1 small banana
1 tbsp Almond Butter
1 scoop BCAA & Glutamine (great for post workout recovery)
Dash or 2 of cinnamon
Blend with ice and water until smooth & enjoy!
