CONFESSION #3 - I haven't always loved females

CONFESSION #3 - CHOOSE KIND  Mean girls are real



I haven’t always loved females. This isn’t a bash session against women. But I need to get this off my chest. Before you begin the hate comments, hear me out... I’m a woman whose mission in life is to empower other women. But there’s a reason behind this. Mean girls are real! Have you ever encountered a mean girl before?

So here it goes... I was bullied as a kid. I was the new girl in a small town in Sugar Land (Texas), mourning over leaving my dad and friends in Los Angeles (California). 

I was different. I spoke differently. I didn't have a Southern accent. My hair wasn’t like the other girls. It was thick, frizzy and hard to tame in the humid Houston climate. I was a scrawny little girl (smallest in the class) no muscle, no butt and awkwardly had large boobs (as I developed very early). When you’re in middle school and skinny, apparently you’re not “allowed” to have breasts. I was called all kinds of names and ridiculed in front of t…

CONFESSION #2 - LETTING GO OF FEAR

CONFESSION #2 - Letting go of fear. 
A lot can change in 10 years. The photo on the left is a 28 yr old girl who has a 9 month old baby. She is proud of herself for being skinny and lean. She’s skinnier at the age of 28, after her first baby, than she was in her college years. She watched everything she ate, kept a food journal and even avoided social situations to not be tempted by the wrong food and alcohol. 

I was head over heels in love when I had my first baby. It was the greatest moment of my life. But then the darkness set in and I was terrified that if I couldn’t look a certain way, no one would want to hire me as their fitness coach. I told myself a story that if I didn’t have the “look” of a fitness model, I’d be portrayed as a less knowledgeable professional. I had the education, knowledge and success stories of my students kicking ass, but it wasn’t enough for me. My only self worth was if I could see my abs that day. I lived in fear. 

Here we are 10 years later. Let’s be hon…

CONFESSION and REAL TALK #1

CONFESSION #1 - REAL TALK The mind of a career woman, mother, girl and student.
I often find myself in this posture throughout the day. The face of seriousness and deep thought. Some may confuse this with me being sad, angry or downright unfriendly. 
If you find me looking like this in a training session or just walking down the street, it’s really me living in my head and doing my absolute best to remember everything I need to get done. Trying so hard to stay focused. Trying so hard to be the best version of myself. Often trying so hard that I get lost in the shuffle of reality. Trying so hard I get tired of trying hard. In all honestly it leaves me feeling drained and utterly exhausted. Why do I do this to myself?
I admit it takes a lot of work for me to get out of my over analytical thinking style. I have to force myself to take breaks from putting so much pressure on myself. We can be our own worst enemy. My goal is to work on creating space to let go, laugh and just BE... Just be whe…

MIGHTY MUSCLE - build strong and defined muscles

Time to put the MIGHTY in your MUSCLES with the MIGHTY MUSCLE program. Before we get started I have some good news and some bad news. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. For those who suffer from choice trauma, you may have a bit of an issue. For the first time ever, I’m bringing you not one, not two, but three different programs to choose from. This could be viewed as a tough decision for those who can be indecisive, but never fear, I’ll help you out.
Let’s get to the good news now. You really can’t go wrong with any of the programs. It all depends on what your goals are at this very moment. In fact you can do all three programs, one after the next if you’d like. Let’s break this down so you can have an understanding of what each one will bring you.










ThePhysique programis the first two month program I had the pleasure of designing out of the three. This is a more conventional approach to targeting each muscle group in a very balanced way. You will still be using mostly kettlebe…
