I started quite a stir on Instagram yesterday posting a make up less, non smile selfie outfit of the day image. Fabletics reached out to me to see if I wanted to wear/test their clothes. After the Ellie fiasco, I’ve been hesitant when it comes to monthly box companies. I do love StitchFix so I [...]

I know many of my Tone It Up readers watched and loved it, but I’m curious what non-TIU members thought of the premiere of Bravo’s new show Toned Up featuring my girls Katrina and Karena. You guys have asked what my relationship is with the gals in the past so here it is… As most [...]

This weekend, I passed my final exam with the Institute of Integrated Nutrition to become a certified Health Coach! I can’t believe how fast the time has passed since I enrolled one year ago. I signed up using a Black Friday special to save $1000 off the tuition. They have a similar offer this year [...]


With Thanksgiving less than a week away, many of my clients are recommitting themselves to a consistent workout routine. While we may not be working towards a bikini body, we are earning our right to indulge during the holidays. If you do not have the luxury of a personal trainer like we offer at Barry’s [...]
