Transformation

I have to be honest…. I HATE sharing my before and after pictures.

I hate admitting that I completely lost myself this past year.

I look at the before picture and tear myself apart. 
True transparency, I will forever be a work in progress on this self love thing.

BUT that being said this program has COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED my life.

Over the past year and a half, I slowly lost myself.
I lost my passion for fitness.
I lost control of my nutrition.
I started to doubt if I would ever get it back.

And then the opportunity to test out this program came to me.

I went all in.
Committed.
Pushed myself.
Trusted the process, even when I was hungry, tired, and frustrated.

First my mindset shifted.
Then my body started to change.
Then my fitness shifted.

This program was an absolute game changer for me and exactly what I needed at the perfect time.

So I want to be the one to share it with you, at exactly the right time. And honestly, if I can inspire just one person to transform their life too because I shared these pictures that make me panic… I’m gonna suck it up and share…

Over and over again.

You ready to TRANSFORM your life too?!

CrossFit vs. At Home Workouts

“Did you give up crossfit in favor of a step?!”

Full disclaimer: When I was asked to be in the test group for our newest program the first question I asked was “can I still do crossfit too?”

We agreed that so long as the only thing I changed and added in to my routine was our newest 20 minute workout program and stuck to the nutrition plan, I could continue doing what I was all along fitness wise. 

Crossfit has forever been my therapy.
But over the past year, my fitness had slowly taken a nosedive.
I had lost my fight. I felt slower. I had gained weight. I wasn’t as strong.
I just didn’t love it quite as much.

Enter Transform :20.
20 Minute cardio workouts based around a step.
And yes I was skeptical.
I honestly had ZERO idea that it would affect my crossfit workouts in the slightest bit.
But I promised I would commit.
I never missed a day.
I stuck to the nutrition plan 110%.
What happened?

I got fitter. Faster. Felt a TRILLION times better.
Push ups are easier.
Running is less taxing.
My energy is through the roof.
Most importantly my MINDSET is completely transformed.

It really is amazing what happens when you learn to transform and control your mindset.
So nope I’m not giving up crossfit, BUT I’m certainly not missing a day of Transform :20 either.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about fitness it’s this: It’s DIFFERENT for everyone.

You have to figure out what will make you THRIVE. What you will ENJOY.

Whether it’s crossfit, at home workouts, zumba, yoga, or a little of both. Find what you LOVE. Stay consistent. And whatever you do be sure you TRANSFORM your mindset first.

Change starts from the inside out. 💛

CrossFit and Beachbody?!?!?!

Crossfit and At Home Workouts. What the heck do the two have in common?

In fact: a whole lot.
When I first started coaching, I felt like I had to hide the fact that I did CrossFit, but here’s something I discovered.

CrossFit was a game changer for me on my fitness journey.
I found my strength.
I found a community.
I found a love of fitness.

So many people are too intimidated to step into a crossfit.
So many people can’t afford a monthly membership.
So many people don’t feel “fit enough” to start.

Enter: At Home Programs.
Thanks to coaching, I am able to give my clients the exact same feeling I discovered years ago.
They get the best community.
They find their strength.
They learn to love fitness.

All from the comfort of their own home.
So whether it’s CrossFit, Shaun T, or 80 Day Obsession, I want to help you find what works for you. No discriminating here.

Find what you love.
Move your body.
Build the best community.
It’s just about taking the first step. Always here to help.

The Biggest Workout Mistake You Might Be Making

I used to be a dancer. In fact I spent over 3 hours a day often in a leotard staring at myself in the mirror. As you can imagine this lead to some pretty hefty body image problems, as well as some frighteningly scarce diets.

When I stopped dancing and actually started eating again, I was pretty unhappy with the weight gain that followed. It was then that I began working out to get skinny. This meant that I ditched the strength training workouts I once did, as a dancer to prevent injury, in favor of hour long sessions on the elliptical, step classes, and just about anything that would get me burning as many calories as possible and breaking a sweat.

You can imagine my disappointment when my workout to get skinny plan was an absolute failure. But I didn’t see this as defeat. Instead I doubled up on workout sessions, started running, and kept my fingers crossed that someday I would just wake up skinny.

When my plan backfired I was stumped, frustrated, and just plain tired. I was subsisting on my low calorie diets that had worked in the past, I was exercising like a maniac, and I was still not losing weight.

It was during this period of frustration that I decided to try CrossFit. I went to my initial class and loved it. My toes weren’t numb from standing on the elliptical for an hour, I wasn’t bored out of my mind, and for once I didn’t spend the entire length of the workout wondering how skinny this would make me.

After my first class I signed up for CrossFit the following week. At the time I was following a liquid meal replacement diet. I was desperate. After my first workout, a running Cindy (5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 air squats, then a 200 M run as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes), I realized shakes weren’t going to do it.

CrossFit has taught me a lot about my body and myself but the biggest take away I got from CrossFit was that I was no longer working out to get skinny.

Since that very first day of going to CrossFit, I became hooked. Slowly my elliptical workouts became obsolete, my endless string of diets became few and far between, and for the first time in a long time I learned just exactly what my body was capable of doing.

I have never once entered my CrossFit box hoping that my workout will burn enough calories to make me skinny. Not once. If you’ve ever struggled with your weight like I have you know how big of a deal that is. Thanks to CrossFit I don’t workout out to get skinny. Tweet it! I don’t workout to look a certain way. I workout to clear my mind, to move my body because I am capable, to set and achieve goals, to learn about myself, and most importantly to see just how much I am capable of.

I can now tell you that it is possible to live a life that is free of the frustrations of diets and working out to get skinny and nothing can make me happier than that simple fact.
