Had a blast this weekend filming @cassadycampbell latest prank. He rented a lambo, wore a suit and pranked companies pretending to be their CEO😂 you guys will have to check out the video thats dropping on his channel tonight.
You want to know the best part about working with others one-on-one to achieve their goals? 🤔
It's not hanging out in the gym all day... 💪
It's DEFINITELY not the (sometimes) early mornings and late nights... 😴
It's the people. The personalities. The personal friendships built. ✔️
My very first female client @kynaxxxxxu from my days training at IU is a prime example of that! 👍
Spending hours a week with someone, you get to know them - its honestly my favorite part of the entire experience. 😝
Building encouraging and positive friendships became an unexpected passion that I didn't know I had when I first got started. ⬇️
In the case of Kyna, I was lucky to even spend this past month getting up to date with her routine and working towards new goals with online training! 🌐
Honestly, I feel so lucky to maintain these types of friendships with the people that I train with. 🙌
And looking towards the future, I'm excited to continue meeting new faces and forming more of these amazing relationships. 😁
Les dimanches soirs sont maintenant synonyme de relaxation pour moi! Depuis que j’ai commencé mon nouveau programme d’entraînement, je vise de prendre du temps pour moi les jours de repos! C’est super de s’entraîner 6/7 jours, mais il faut aussi prendre le temps de récupérer et de refaire le plein d’énergie pour la nouvelle semaine qui débute demain! Ce soir, bain au sel d’epsom! Tu connais ?
C’est rempli de bienfaits. Entre autre, les Sels d’Epsom sont un super remède contre le stress & aide à favoriser la détente musculaire. Parfais quand on s’entraîne intensément! Lorsque le sulfate de magnésium est absorbé par la peau, il expulse les toxines du corps, détend le système nerveux, réduit le gonflement et donne un soulagement aux muscles. C’est un émollient naturel et exfoliant. Le moyen le plus efficace de le faire absorber par le corps c’est de le mettre dans un bon bain chaud! Celui que j’utilise est à l’eucalyptus 🙌🏻
Prom was terrible! 💥💩
A few years ago I was completely stressed and a complete loser! 😬
This was a time in my life when I was neither productive or happy! I was just settling with what was, because it was easier. Even though I knew deep down I deserved better.😕
At this time I had been kicked out of my house, and was now living with my ex and her parents(dont do this). It seemed like a great idea at first but holy heck did it unravel into a mess.😥
Im going be honest and say at this time I was battling addiction. I was prescribed adderal at this time, but after trucking through hard terrain in my life I eventually started abusing them.😓😩
I told eveyone they helped me 'focus', this was a BS lie I just told myself this to feel better! 😟
The relationship with my exs family fell apart and so did hers and I relationship. We were both to stubborn and it caused a lot of turmoil! We shouldve parted ways sooner but gosh kids dont know when to listen to their subconscious!😤😫
I eventually stopped the pills after going on a vacation with my family and having a breakdown with one of the islanders, who said they were a guru, he gave me conrete advice that shaped a lot of my beliefs!🙌
He explained if you arent happy no one involved in your life will be happy, if you arent productive no one involved around you will be! 😱
This changed a lot on my insight in life, and also shaped my very meaning for being on this earth!😀😊 CONTINUED BELOW⏬⏬⏬ Please Read I know its a lot😬

Kiss your father on the forehead and whisper “goodnight sweet prince” in his ear for me.
Take a moment to appreciate your family on this Family Day and stop being a disappointment.
Also take a moment to make your dad feel uncomfortable.. or incredibly comfortable, I’m not sure what your family dynamics are like.
💥🔥💥 Fat Burners 💥🔥💥
Just take this pill, and you will have the body you want in a flash ⚡️
Although that’s NOT EXACTLY what the fat burner bottle says, that is what I use to believe
Because LOSING WEIGHT is a GRUELING task, and I WANTED “that” body SO bad
I know from personal experience how NOT having the body that you want, messes with your mind, and you are willing to do ANYTHING, besides sell your FIRST BORN of course 😉
I just want to let you know that you are not alone. Many people, including myself, many times throughout my life, are guilty of looking for “quick fixes,” and spending HUNDREDS of dollars on weight loss products, especially FAT BURNERS
Each time I purchased these magical pills, my mind was in a state where I believed that the FAT BURNER literally had the capability to melt my FAT on the spot. .
So.....WHAT ARE THESE MAGICAL PILLS?
FAT BURNERS are a SUPPLEMENT
designed to INCREASE metabolism, INCREASE energy, and REDUCE appetite to INCREASE the number of calories you burn, which in turn leads to weight loss
EVERY TIME I purchased these FAT BURNERS, I was never able to get the body I was desiring
Because it’s a SUPPLEMENT. Fat burners CAN’T do the job alone
This is something I wished I knew because I could have saved A TON of 💵, and a lot of heartache 💔
In short....NO FAT BURNER will be effective unless it is also PAIRED with a PROPER DIET PLAN and a GOOD WORKOUT PROGRAM
‼️They aren’t magic pills BUT if you put in the work, they can be a big help‼️
I am proud 😊 to be able to say that the body I have today is not the result of using fat burners, (which is my personal choice), but a result of HARD WORK 💪🏽 and DEDICATION .
Beginners guide to the gym:
Have a plan.
Focus on proper form.
That’s it. You don’t need to get fancy. Just focus on these and you’ll be good to go. You can worry about more complex stuff as you grow in your fitness journey.
I’ll be making a detailed YouTube video this week on a beginners guide to the gym.

January 6th - February 18th •
Today has definitely been the hardest day mentally to stick to my macros and to continue training at a high intensity. Lol, I currently have had dreams about food the past couple days😅 Even after a Re-feed of 385c 185p 55f the other day I still feel like I’m in a mental fog. Nevertheless, I’m still pushing through my mental barriers to reach my goal of winning the NANBF Wisconsin Warrior body competition. If you’re looking for a legit coach to help you with either gaining muscle or to prep for contest my guy @chris_elkins knows the formula. 7 weeks of prep and I can’t believe the transformation we have already made. 12 more weeks and you’ll get to see the final results!😈
Easiest snack on the planet! Blend everything up in a food processor, roll into balls, store in the fridge for a quick easy snack.
6-8 pitted dates
2 tbs peanut butter
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 cup almonds
Sprinkle of mini chocolate chips
Depending on consistency you may have to add a few tbs of almond milk
What is your WHY⁉️
🔵 - For EVERY goal you set, there’s a reason why you want to achieve it. In most cases, there are MANY reasons.
🔵 - For those courageous goals make sure you write down WHY you want to achieve it. This is plays an important role in holding you accountable and inspiring you to take the necessary actions to reach that goal.
🔵 - If your goal is to compete then write down all the reasons why. Each morning you wake up during your contest prep read your WHY out loud. This will drastically improve your attitude during prep and help increase adherence.👍🏼

I HATE feeling stalled, feeling like I'm not making progress, and failing to meet my own high expectations. I HATE it. I don't use the word hate lightly. but these feelings can burn me pretty badly before I catch them.
I know, though, that part of that long journey upwards is little steps back, little lulls and valleys to match the peaks. I know that, I coach others through that...but feeling it first hand sucks.
In those moments you're least prepared, thoughts crowd into your mind telling you that your plan isn't working, you're failing, you're doing something wrong or you're not capable...you're not trying. The temptation is to grit your teeth and try to force progress.
In my experience, this is when injuries happen. So instead, if I catch these inaccurate feelings, I make note of them then dispose of them. I listen to my body, take a step back, and reset. I do an inventory, look at my training and lifestyle and see where I can improve. I detach my feelings from the issue, because there's no point in getting upset about the natural ebb and flow of your body and progress when you're working hard.
For others, these'll be the points you're tempted to quit. Don't do it.
Today it was clear my body wasn't ready for the big boy weights yet, so I kept volume and intensity lower and did some extra shooting. I had a blast shooting. I'll focus a little more on basic recovery over the next few days and reign myself in.
Up implies down. Embrace both.
Chefing it up by the ocean. This was a pasta dish that I decided to put a new twist to. Had some really aromatic flavors that combined for a slightly sweet, savory, and spicy sauce in a balsamic vinegar reduction.
Some of the things I used were: butternut squash, sweet onion, baby potatoes, cherry tomatoes, garlic, squash noodles, chile, portabella mushrooms, cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, cumin, smoked peprika
Along with a few other small things to boost the flavor and health benefits.
Completely vegan dish, that has deep flavors and consistency. Have fun trying new recipes!!!
Upper body warm up/stretch !!! 🤸♀️🙌 This is a regularly used vinyasa in yoga, but it’s also a great warm up before any type of upper body work as it loosens up the joints & muscles while simultaneously engaging them - which as you can prob guess is great preparation for a good lift sesh to follow💪 Positions & their associated benefits listed below ⬇️ _
1. Downward Dog - energizes body, stretches shoulders/chest/neck muscles/hamstrings/calves, engages arms/legs, elongates spine
2. Chaturanga - engages & strengthens arms/core/quads/glutes, improves core stability. This is definitely a more difficult pose but variations are possible - took me years of practice and core strengthening to develop good form and technique w this one!
3. Upward Dog - stretches chest/abs/shoulders, strengthens spine/arms/wrists. Be mindful that if your thighs are on the floor that is a variation of this pose and is called cobra. Your elbows should be bent in cobra and straightened in upward dog!
4. Child’s Pose - Stretches hips/thighs/ankles, opens up hips, elongates/relieves lower back & neck, stretches arms if laid out in front. This is also a great resting pose for breathing focus🧘♀️ I added an extra arm/shoulder stretch by simply reaching each arm thru the opposite sides.
Try this before and/or after your next upper body session!! I usually repeat the flow about 3 times before and after my workouts. Also good for rest days or any time you need some extra relaxation/stress relief (**Remember to connect your breath to each movement**)🙇♀️💚 #vinyasa#warmup
