Train for the LOVE of your life

When we first set out on this journey of training for life, we can barely skip a rope, push-ups are our nemesis & daily aches and pains have us believing we are to be prisoners of it. Then we consciously choose to make the effort to stay with it. We choose to make our training a ritual habit. We begin to understand that training is no longer a societal “have to,” it’s an internal & authentic WANT TO. We learn that honoring our bodies exercise and challenged movements  makes us stronger at every layer. It’s beautiful. It’s an evolution   …

re-build from injury, tragedy, trauma

I deeply believe in process. I deeply believe in trusting it. Knowing that each step we take can be towards a build or a re-build. from injury.from tragedy.from trauma. I believe that if we want to truly experience a healing for ourselves, we can. We just have to abide by and trust the process, sometimes with patience we never even knew was possible. It may take additional investment of time, money, discipline, guidance, but it can and will happen. In this era of one click satisfaction and google seconds, we are becoming heavily conditioned for shortcuts, quickness and easy frustration, …

But First…

…Mobility! All of our training sessions begin with nourishing our flexibility and mobility. In this house, your awesome body isn’t going anywhere near those weights until… First, Foam Rolling.Second, Static Stretches.Third, Active/Dynamic Mobility Why? Well, let’s make it simple. We want to recruit more muscles fibers to work for us, but if they are all bound up in traffic jams, AKA “knots,” how the hell are they gonna get to work? Chances are they probably won’t, and then their colleagues and fibers from other departments start doing their job for them, (not as well of course…because IT’S NOT THIER JOB), …

Sitting. Just. Too. Much. Sitting.

Sitting. Our human body which was Born To Move, is subject to so. much. sitting. So we develop low back pain, weak hamstrings, tight hips and a weakened core.

What’s with all the Warm-up Stuff you DO in There?

Dynamic Warm-ups! It’s what we do! But why? ☝🏼We reduce the occurrence of muscle strains because our muscles are warmed & prepared for the work ahead. ✌🏼We increase our blood flow & lubrication to our muscles and joints, once again preparing them and igniting them for the work ahead. 👌🏼We welcome joint movement and activate our sensory receptors within our joints, muscles, and tendons to let them know, “HEY we are about to do this thang!” Movement Is the Essence of Life! Movement IS Life!

Don’t Take Compliments

I am not allowing myself to take compliments anymore. Most of the time, when I “take” compliments, I only KINDA take the one that are referring to a completion of some task, and then most of the time they still zip right over my head because for some deep, illogical reason, I don’t feel as if I am worthy of the compliment. It is a fleeting moment. There is no depth. When I am given compliments on who I am at the core, or the gifts I have been given as a human being, well then THOSE compliments go in …

You’re NOT Alone.

I am going to ask for help, with everything that I need help with, with no criticism of myself. Whatever I am going through, I’m not alone. Whatever you are going through, you are not alone. But sometimes everyone feels “so alone,” in this crazy world and from my experience I have to believe that we are almost afraid to reach out. What if the person(s) ask think we are inadequate??? Well, they won’t. One of my coaches taught me this-never steal anyone’s chance to be needed. So, in those times when I feel like I am alone or can’t …

Start Your Day by Reminding Yourself About How Fuck.ing Awesome You Really Are.

Start your day by reminding yourself how fucking awesome you really are. Like make it the FIRST thing you do! These days I am saying affirmations first thing in the morning instead of in the middle of the day. I used to pick a time in the middle of the day to meditate or just go into silence in a room in my house I have specifically designed for just chillin. I’d read and say affirmations in there. But half of the day had already happened so it felt like o was trying to “reset,” or neutralize and shitty thinking …

your mind is a brilliant fuck you upper.

What does that title even mean? Well, it’s brilliant and it’s brilliance in negotiation tactics, can, well, fuck us up. Lemme show ya. Even as a child develops, as parents we are taught to explain “why” we have asked a child to do something or ‘why” these are the steps involved in doing it. This way, the child connects with the task/learning at hand and has a much better chance of seeing it through…. Well, Today I invite you to revisit YOUR why. Why do you workout? train? have a membership at our gym?I was saying this morning as I …
