Shut Up and Train Article and Brand New Tank Tops

I recently wrote an article called Shut Up and Train, which can be seen in the upcoming June/July edition of My Mad Methods Magazine that is on sale now.  The philosophy of this magazine is based upon the concept of Unconventional training.  This speaks to me on a personal level since I didn't grow up in a conventional way.  In fact, I had quite an unconventional childhood and have continued this way in to my adult life.  Many may think this could scar a child or cause instability due to being raised under different circumstances than the typical American family.  Becoming the product of an unconventional upbringing has carried over in to a profound way of adapting easily. Thinking outside the box and has allowed me to embrace these methods of training as a way of life with an openmind.   Shut Up and Train is an attitude driven article from the past 14 years I've been listening to every excuse in the book of why one doesn't commit to training.  It's taken me this long to truly understand how the mind works towards "exercising" or which I like to call training.  Quick side note: A blog post on Training versus Exercise is coming real soon so stay tuned.  The article in this magazine is designed to give you the tools to get motivated, trash the excuses and show up.  With a very tough love approach, I bring to you "Shut Up and Train" in My Mad Methods Magazine.  There is currently a discounted price for the entire online or hard copy edition that includes some powerful pieces from some of the top female coaches.  On top of great training information,

I think we can all find an excuse to do nothing instead of getting off our butts.Funnily enough, when people finally get motivated, they ask themselves why they didn't do something sooner!

Awesome!!! Your body has completely changed thru your DVD series... I know you had a cpl pregnancies but What's been the change in training? Just different focus?
Vol.1 is more Pilates type, lean body... Vol. 2 and 3 you look bigger, more defined.
Has your training completely changed?

You are indeed an inspiration to a lot of women out there, I am glad I was able to read your post 'cause this is what my wife really needs. Every time I motivate her to perform her workout activity, she just keeps on making endless excuse, and etc. I believe, this will let her realize what she needs to realize. Thank you so much!!
Killer!!! I love the attitude and the message. No excuses! You're an inspiration, keep up the good work!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga
