It isn’t on the regular that my younger sister and I are both home in Texas at the same time Jillian is going into her sophmore year at Pepperdine, so much of her time is consumed with school and lots of practice. At 6’2 Jillian has always stuck out on and off the court.

Pepperdine Freshman year awards:

  • West Coast Conference All-Freshman team selection
  •  Started 15 matches at the libero position and four matches as an outside hitter
  •  Ranked seventh in the conference with 3.56 digs/set. That stat also ranks ninth in the program’s single season (rally scoring era only) record book
  •  Played in 88 total sets and 24 matches, Totaled 313 digs
  • Earned a double-double in her first collegiate start vs. Iona (8/31) with 11 kills and 11 digs
  •  Season-high kill total came at Pacific (10/10) with 19 kills

Shes kind of a bad A.


Want that slim , but toned bod? Increase your speed and power? This high intensity interval training workout with my sister, and starting Pepperdine volleyball play can give you all you need to reach those goals. This workout focuses on short, powerful bursts of activity followed by short rest periods. I use a similar workout method to get in shape. For Jillian to be in the best possible shap she needs this type of exercise because every match requires quick and powerful movements. You dont have to be a college volleyball athlete to benefit from this workout. Anyone and everyone should use this type of circuit training to build muscle and improve athletic mobility.

Block Jumps: 20 reps, 4 sets

These dont necessarily have to be on a sand volleyball court, you can do squat jumps at your gym or home. Although, adding the sand will create resistance when jumping, making it much more difficult.

starting posblock jump

Push ups 20 reps, 3 sets

If you’re at a park like us you can find the nearest bench, grass, or whatever flat surface you can find to get those arms tank top toned!


Squat Switches 15 reps, 3 sets

We made it a little more fun and alternated back and forth. You can go straight across without alternating sides and get the same benefits from the exercise, you may get a little more cardio in with the alternating.

So a few weeks ago Michelle and I were lucky to get to go to Karve Studio in Lindon, Utah for a couple of workout sessions. Karve is a Barre workout and is incredible.  All we could really say was WOW. It was such an amazing workout. The first workout that we went to was taught by Dawn. She was such an amazing instructor.  Afterward Michelle and I were both sore the next day:) which was really good cause that makes us feel like we got a good workout! The next time we went the instructor was Jamie. She was such a good instructor too. Both classes that we went to were completely different but the both used the Karve technique which is a barre workout but very effective because of the instructors training.

Both Michelle and I workout on a daily basis so the first time going to the class we thought that it wouldn’t be too hard…. well were we wrong or what. It was one of the best and hardest workouts we’ve both done in a while.  We definitely got our butts kicked!!!

The facility itself was awesome. Super clean and super nice!  Both Michelle and I forgot socks (you do the workout in socks) and they had a clean pair for both of us to borrow. They also have childcare so their are no excuses for getting your workout in!!!!  I cannot wait to get myself back to Karve and get a good workout!

Karve also sells Albion Fit workout clothing which are adorable along with really cute workout clothing of their own. We both bought Sweatshirts that say “Meet me at the Barre” They are sooooo cute.

So if you want to get a good workout go to Karve Studio!  They also have awesome membership deals that are affordable!  Hopefully you will “Meet us at the Barre!”  XOXO Chelle & SaraJane
