I’m so excited that today marks exactly 1 more week until we leave for Los Angeles with Nike Training Club to finish out the last leg of the NTC Tour! Not only am I ecstatic to feel the sun beating down on my face, go with one of my best friends from Chicago and see one of my best friends who lives in LA, but I’m so excited to be a part of this journey with Nike Training Club. I have been truly amazed to see my workouts change thanks to the NTC app and the classes at the studio. I mentioned this in a previous workout post, but the app has been a gamechanger for me this winter.

My favorite workouts are actually some of the “Get Focused” ones. They’re only 15 minutes but they’re killer and if you combine them you can create a more tailored workout for what you want with less rest than some of the pre-defined longer workouts. My trick is I look through similar ones and find the one that would burn the most fuel.. I’m always looking for the biggest bang for my buck in terms of time! Here are the ones I’ve found myself loving as of late:

Core Crunch

Cardio Burst

Ab Burner

Cardio Killer

Hollywood Ab Blast

Box Smart

I’ve been really trying to prepare and eat a bit healthier again and stay dedicated to my commitment that is on the wall of the new NTC Studio on Michigan Avenue. In the afternoons at work by about 4:00 I’m ravishing and trying to avoid a casual bag of Pop Chips or something sweet (there are cupcakes everyday I swear everyone was born in February and March), and so my friends over at KIND Snacks sent me over some bars to try. The Nuts & Spices line is great because unlike many other bars they contain only 5g of sugar or less and there are flavors that give me my sweet fix and pack some protein to tide me over until after I get home from my workouts. Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt and Maple Glazed Pecan and Sea Salt? Done.

kind snacks, kind bars


I’m really excited to announce that TVF52 + KIND Snacks are giving away a massive supply of KIND Nuts & Spices bars! The lucky winner will receive 1 box of each of the 6 flavors for a prize package of 72 bars total. It’s super simple to enter, just follow along with both of us on social media and comment telling us why you would want the bars.

The giveaway will end on Monday, March 10 at midnight!

Looking forward to announcing a winner! Yesterday you said tomorrow, JUST DO IT! Have a great weekend :)


I love KIND bars, but as a college student, it’s tough to spend $4 on a bar…especially since I like eating them before and after workouts!

As a college student, I’m always juggling a lot of things and on the go. Kind bars would be so nice to have to grab and run on my way to meetings or to snack on in the library.

I LOVE bars like these! I have yet to have the chance to try KIND but other bars stuffed with amazing ingredients like these are my favourite go-to snack. I want to be fit and healthy and hope to run a race someday!

I’ve been thinking about trying these for a while now…

You definitely should! They’re delicious

I LOVE kind bars. Dark chocolate Cinnamon Pecan is my favorite! I’m training for a half-marathon with a few friends so they would be perfect for a pre-workout boost and a post-workout snack! With 72 bars I would definitely be able to share with a few training buddies too :)

Love it! I didn’t know you were doing a half marathon, I agree and think that would be an awesome way to prepare!

Kind bars are the perfect snack while traveling!

I couldn’t agree more .. so easy to slip into your purse or bag and way better than airport fast food!

Love the inspiration, girl :)

Thanks Jesi! xo

love these kind bars for fueling workouts! hope i win!

Good luck Suzanne! :)
