❤️ Sometimes the biggest barrier to our health and fitness goals is our own state of mind. Fear, frustration, a desire to wait to begin exercising until we lose a little weight or have more time and energy... whatever the reason, when it comes to working out it is easy to find a reason not to make it happen.
I understand because I've been there. I've gained and lost weight over the years, been harassed and shamed about my body. Those external circumstances caused a LOT of inner turmoil for me. I've suffered dance injuries and illness. I've placed my entire self worth into how I looked, and discounted how that made me feel. I have looked at my body and felt pain, confusion, even hate. I am thankful to say that with my Ballet Beautiful program and a lot of hard work, I have also learned to love and appreciate my body and all that it does for me.
Becoming a Mom and continuing to dance and work through three pregnancies and while breastfeeding my girls has also given me a whole new appreciation for the power and beauty of the female body.
My youngest daughter, Rosabella, is now 7 months old. When I began thinking about how to reintroduce exercise into my life after her birth this spring I felt overwhelmed. I was anxious to begin working out and training but tight on time. We filmed our Body Recharge Series when Rosabella was four months old. I created this program to meet you where you are RIGHT NOW. Body Recharge is a tool to help anyone that has taken a break from fitness get back at it, and begin the process of building tone, stamina and strength. These videos include some of my favorite exercises for after the birth of a baby, an injury or any sort of pause in working out. They are also awesome at the beginning or end of a more intense workout.
Here's to loving our bodies and ourselves! ❤️ Have a beautiful workout! #BodyRecharge Link in Bio 💪 #BalletBeautiful
