Some days you just feel like you gotta channel that wild Amazonian badass that lives inside you to handle shit. In a kick ass, climbing mountain, wild hair don’t care kind of mood today 💁🏼‍♀️ Monday come at me 🙅🏼‍♀️ what you got!? #motivation #mondaymotivation #wild #free #vibe #tribe #goddess #channelled #badass #fitnessmodel #strikeapose #flex #legday #gymmotivation #thegreatoutdoors #energy #ifbb #ifbbpro #fitness #protan #beyourself #independentwoman #handle #muscle #girlswithmuscle

My ABs may be defined but they don’t define me... my shape is ever changing, it’s temporary, the more I hold onto what I perceive to be “me” the less space I create for change and for happiness to come in. We can have beautiful sculpted bodies through the choices and actions we take daily. But a beautiful free mind feels much nicer. I may look a certain way but at the same time I’m working on practicing non attachment to anything. Attachment to anything can cause pain. It’s ok to want to have something or achieve something and to have goals and ambitions, just try not to base your happiness on getting or achieving those same things. Happiness is found in the process not the destination. 🙌🏼❤️ #Sunday thoughts #happiness #abs #sixpack #change #process #goals #motivation #fitness #fitnessmodel #ifbbfitness #ifbbpro #profitness #girlswithmuscle #girlsthatlift #fitnessmotivation #shredded #fitchick #defined #protan #rcss #staysinister #gymwear photo by @martinirvinephotography

Express yourself ... 💘 expressing yourself and showing people you care should be celebrated. I feel no connection to Valentine’s Day as it’s just an invention, but what I do love about this invention is it gives people permission to express themselves freely.
It was so nice to see all the love in all forms in my world over the last few days. Not just couples expressing how they feel for each other. Single friends celebrating their friendships , people expressing love for themselves, their mothers, daughters, brothers, sisters, even dogs receiving messages, appreciation and symbols of love. I could literally see and feel the love in the air 💞I make a point of telling people in my life as often as possible that I love them and that my connection with them is important to me. I also try and love and accept who I am each day. If we lead by example and are true to ourselves the love will shine through and inspire others to be the same. So I welcome you to tag someone you love under this post, show them your appreciation, feel free to express yourself 💞🙏🏼 I love you, all you beautiful humans 💘

Girl grew some guns! Seriously... comparing these pics... has me thinking “Is this even the same girl!!” The simple answer is no. I am not the same. There’s a lot of time, experience and growth as a person physically and mentally in between. Prob about 7years between pics. On the left, I was a vegan yogi, lifted no weights, but I was strong. I had spent about 6years working on myself doing a 3hr intense yoga practice daily. I did a lot of energy work and healing and really expanded who I was as a person. I had the same drive I have now to be better than I was yesterday. Just with a different focus. I feel like every day I wake up feeling new, and ready for change and more growth and expansion, what’s in store for me today? Always asking who am I and what glorious adventure will I have today? Try not to get stuck in a dogma of “who you are” and what defines you... just be whomever you feel you are each day. You will always be changing, that’s unavoidable, so embrace the change and do things that bring more joy into your life. Now as a result of daily choices I’ve made over the last number of years, I feel strong, capable, powerful, I have infinite possibilities as do you if you just allow yourself the permission to chase your dreams. #transformationtuesday #transform #girlswithguns #girlsthatlift #muscle #girlswithmuscle #justbe #lifttheweight #shredded #strongnotskinny #trainhard #whoami #whodat #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #thegymmonasterevin #ifbbpro #pro #fitnesspro #grow #gowiththeflow #feel #inspire #fitness #bodybuilding #yogi #protan #sinisterlabs raw photo by @martinirvinephotography

And then for the first time in her life, she felt free. Free to be whatever she felt in that moment. Strong, flexible, fit, hard, soft, female... Free yourself from yourself ... why be anyone else or why try conform to an image of what you think others want you to be? Are you being true to who YOU really are or are you living through someone else’s eyes? You are uniquely you, the greatest gift you can give anyone and yourself is the honesty and truth that comes with just being who you are. I feel 2018 will bring out a lot more of the essence of who I am each day. Ever changing and undefined. This may be my physical form... but my soul is dancing to get out. I want to meet you, the real you that you are each day, good and bad, whatever that may be. No judgement, just joy ☺️ no carbon copies, no sheeple as my brother likes to say 🙏🏼🙌🏼 just be you for you and I’ll be me for me #letsdance #beyou #everyoneelseistaken #bereal #betrue #fitness #fitnessmodel #fitnessmotivation #ifbb #ifbbfitnesspro #flexible #strong #fit #muscle #nebbia #protan #thegymmonasterevin #girlswithmuscle #gymnastics #dance #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #gymwear #strikeapose #express photo by @oskarboralphotography

Bit of flexing on a Friday as you do 😎 I just want to highlight something here. I showed this pic to someone and their reaction was “wow you look massive there” ... I did a cut for that shoot, And I weighed a few kilos less than I do now. When you are lean and have visible cuts in your muscles you look “bigger” than you are when you have more bodyfat covering the muscles. In fact you are actually much smaller and lighter usually. Bodybuilding and prepping for shoots and shows is all a bit of an illusion. It’s a visual sport. A mastery of shape, form, how dry you can get and in my case how well you can perform whilst being in a depleted state. Fitness is a unique combo of how the body looks and also how badass you can still perform whilst looking that way. One of the main reasons most of the fitness girls stay pretty lean all year I think is that it means we don’t suffer as much come show day as there is no need to do anything drastic as the body is comfortable in that state. Also we are actually fit, we need to stay fit to be able to smash a high energy routine and being and feeling lighter makes all the gymnastics feel so much better. I feel my best when I am light, lean and agile but also still have enough food and energy to lift pretty heavy. It’s a lifestyle for me, I love this shit. If you want to stay on track with your fitness goals, I highly suggest doing only things that you love and that motivate you to move more ☺️ happy Friday fam #fitfam #fitness #ifbb #ifbbpro #ifbbfitnesspro #ifbbproleague #thisisfitness #fitchick #shredded #flexfriday #onfridaysweflex #backday #shredded #lean #bodybuilding #fitnesscompetitor #fitnessmodel #fitnessmotivation #gymgear #bodybuildingkit #thegymmonasterevin #athlete #athletelifestyle #trainhard #muscle #girlsthatlift photo by @oskarboralphotography

Be Free 💞
What a wonderful thing it can be to be free in how you express yourself. Thank you all for what I can only describe as an outpouring of pure love in my direction on my story yesterday 💞🙏🏼 I’ve literally had 100s of amazing, uplifting, loving messages. People are so awesome ☺️🎉 being a bit brave and exposed feels strangely nice. It’s never comfortable when your heart is involved but it feels very liberating! Whatever will Be will Be and I’ll still be me. Whatever happens in life I’ll always aim to express how I feel and think with honesty and good intentions. Im a firm believer in what you put out you get back. If you open yourself up to the world and all it has to offer you create boundless space inside you for new joy and love to flood in. The story is still live but will disappear soon if anyone wants to have a peek #heartonsleeve #thisisme #bfree #samesamebutbetter #love #inspire #live #life #happy #vibes #dare #coffee #smile #whatelseispossible #howdoesitgetevenbetterthanthis #energy #positive #uplifting #fitness #fitchick #story #checkmystory #dance #expressyourself #nebbia #move #feel #protan #ifbbpro #fitnesspro photo by the ever so talented @oskarboralphotography

When the lighting is on point and you’re feeling open for the first time in years...
When was the last time you allowed yourself to be open to what is actually possible in life? Sometimes we have to close ourselves off to really feel what it’s like to be free and open to new adventures and experiences. Open to whatever unfolds as opposed to trying to control our path and the direction our life is taking. I’m leaving Norway with a question, “what else is possible!?” Who knows, but I will embrace whatever aligns for me and always follow what feels good and light and allows more space to be happy. Living in the moment as opposed to living for the moments. This is life, all in... let’s flow with the go. #flowwiththego #tuesdaythoughts #happy #happiness #present #open #whatelseispossible #love #nocco #energy #light #life #space #warm #nofear #consciousness #awake #fitness #fitpro #ifbbpro #limitless #excited #bepresent #justbe #justbeyourself #nowalls #followyourpassion #adventure #thankful @sharktan86 ❤️

This place is pretty special ❤️ Nothing like some Handstands in -20 degrees, 500m from the ice cold Arctic Ocean, under the northern sky to make you feel alive and appreciate life and those I get to share these moments with ❤️ thank you @sharktan86 for the memories and the photo #northernlights #ice #snow #handstands #yogaeverydamnday #sunset #sunrise #cold #warm #life #memories #picoftheday #strikeapose #yoga #peace #tranquility #love #happiness #logcabin #thegreatoutdoors #fitness #ifbb #ifbbfitness #ifbbpro #fitchick #lean #healthy

#flexfriday
Any one else love to train arms? Nothing like a good arm pump to make you feel powerful and strong. What I love most about lifting is the feeling of being strong and capable. Someone asks me if I need help carrying something, 9 times out of 10, I can happily say “no thank you, I got this”. Confident in my ability to tackle physical tasks makes me strong mentally also. Strong body, strong mind. Happy flex Friday fam 💪🏼☺️ #onfridaysweflex #flex #strikeapose #goals #fitnessmotivation #abs #sixpack #girlswithmuscle #fitness #fitnesschick #fitnesspro #ifbbpro #ifbbfitnesspro #thegym #thegymmonasterevin #muscle #guns #biceps #armday #shredded #fitnessmodel #gymwear #protan #coach #onlinecoach #trainhard #thebodybuildingkit #strongissexy photo by @oskarboralphotography Ryderwear is currently 50% off at @thegymmonasterevin 🙌🏼

A strong backbone and a thick skin.

People can be mean at times. Maybe not intentionally or even consciously... but mean none the less. This industry has given me a great gift.. a thick skin. When you put yourself out there not all the messages will be nice or supportive. Usually if you do well in anything in life, there will be people that will resent you for it, as it can highlight something about themselves that they don’t like or something that you have that they wish they had. This comes with the territory. Also not everyone has the capacity to understand the path you are on and that’s ok. I’d like to thank all the haters for the hate for its fuelling my fire to be great 😎 also thank you to all the amazing people who have my back and send me love and support and give me energy each day. You are all awesome 🙏🏼 happy Thursday fam 🙌🏼 try be gentle in your actions and words for not everyone is made of stone. Rule number one, don’t be a d*ck #bekind #backbone #thickskin #thoughts #nebbia #protan #fitnessmodel #fitnessmotivation #energy #happiness #fitness #ifbbpro #ifbb #ifbbfitnesspro #girlswithmuscle #thegymmonasterevin #flex #backday #dontbeadick #photoshoot photo by @oskarboralphotography

#transformationtuesday
I guess you could say a few things have changed in between these pics. 5 years In the difference:
1: I learned how to use the photo timer on my iPhone.
2: I learned how to pose.
3: I learned how to brush my hair... actually, no, I didn’t 🙈😂 4: My elbows got pointier.
5: My face got happier
6: My waistline got smaller
All physical, all on the surface. What you don’t see here is the transformation that’s happened internally. I am what I like to call a “searcher”. I know others will relate. Spending my life always striving for more, more knowledge, more fun, more happy times, more strength, more victories, more challenges.
I’ve learned over the years that this searching is ok, as it propels you to new heights in whatever your focus is on. But it’s also so important to enjoy the journey as you search. Happiness is in the here and now, in the process, in the making of what you are working for. There is no destination, only a journey to travel and enjoy.
My body and shape is a result of my focus and energy and enjoyment I put into achieving it. How I think about everything now is a direct result of how open I have allowed myself to be to the process of living and feeling what’s right for me. There is no one way, no one path. ABs won’t make you happy but the process of training hard for them might ☺️ no holding on to an image of ourselves, we are constantly changing and evolving, I am not the same person I was yesterday, life’s little experiences all shape a new me each day. How exciting and wonderful it feels opening up to what else is possible each and every day ☺️ #justbe #whateverwillbewillbe #transform #shape #progress #bodybuilding #fitness #fitnesspro #crossfit #abs #strong #muscle #fatloss #diet #training #shreds #sixpack #xframe #physique #ifbb #ifbbpro #lean #fit #healthy #changeisgood

Hair flick... new week on fleek 🙌🏼 Monday, a day like every other 24hrs we are gifted. Do some epic work today that ignites a fire inside you. Because life is too short to do anything that doesn’t bring you joy. Motivation is really high for me lately, I feel like the days are too short for all I want to achieve and the year on calendar is looking so small all of a sudden. Any one else feeling this? Has me up late working and up early drinking coffee ☕️ can’t complain, coffee is life and I’m busy being happy doing all that I do 🙌🏼😂 #mondaymotivation #motivation #hairflick #onfleek #blondehair #dontcare #abs #fitness #ifbbfitness #ifbbfitnesspro #ifbbpro #sixpack #protan #girlsthatlift #girlswithmuscle #jackedandtan #muscle #bodybuilding #crossfit #gymlife #girly #girlboss #workhard #trainhard #happiness #motivated #fitnessmotivation raw photo by the talented @martinirvinephotography

On Sundays we S Q U A T
Myself and @bressie smashing it up.
10 x 10 backsquats today at 80kg.
My love for squats has officially returned thanks to my time spent with @trainedbyeric at @titanfitnessthailand
Excited to get testing my numbers at lower rep range over the next few weeks. Strength is on the up for sure. I didn’t always love squats, in fact I used to totally dread them. Learning to love them took a lot of time and effort. I spent a lot of time trembling and crumbling under the weight and a lot of feeling very uncomfortable before they started to feel solid... now I get excited about the challenge instead of fearing it and I can’t wait for my squat session every week.
A work in progress. Squats are such an awesome full body exercise so I’d highly recommend including them in your weekly plan. Reppin @thegymmonasterevin @noccoireland (@ 54kg BW for those who will ask)

Sunshine with a chance of rain.
Don’t put off doing something that brings you happiness out of fear of it not going exactly to plan. How many times have you sat at home in your comfort zone out of fear of failure? So what if you fail? Who gives a damn. The less you care about what people think of you the more free you can be to be exactly what you were born to be. Reach for your absolute full potential every day, leap head first off the edge of that cliff, stop thinking “what if I fall?” Darling, what if you fly? 🙌🏼 brave the unknown, feel that fear in your gut, embrace those butterflies and do what scares the crap out of you any way. No better way to feel alive. Life’s way too short to not do epic shit with the time we are gifted. #happiness #thoughts #saturday #vibes #faceyourfear #embrace #doepicshit #getcomfortablebeinguncomfortable #fitness #photoshoot #fitnessmodel #feelthefearanddoitanyway #divein #allin #headfirst #whatelseispossible #motivation #fitnesspro #ifbbpro #muscle #fitchick #dontholdback #carpediem #dosomethingthatscaresyou #behappy #justbe #bodybuilding #brainbuilding photo by Lawrence Scott and Steve Gauld 💞

#TBT to this time last week training and having fun at the NOCCO Apple launch in London with @obi_vincent and @sarahholden_fit One thing that I value and love most about being a professional athlete and supported by some amazing brands like @noccoireland is I get to meet and spend time with some of the nicest people. NOCCO has some sort of magic formula for brining together the coolest humans 😎 I’m so thankful to be part of the team 🙏🏼 #teamnocco #nocco #areyounoccoenough #apple #bcaa #crossfit @royaldockscrossfit @noccouk @nocco

Does what you are doing feel heavy or light? How often do you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? What if I told you that you and only you are responsible for the heaviness of what you feel? You are choosing to carry the burden. You can do one of two things, boss that weight, pick it up and create new energy by moving it and throwing it back down or else surrender to it and let it drag you down until you are trapped under it, feeling lifeless and numb. The more focus you give to how heavy it feels the heavier that weight becomes. If you try and visualise the weight as light, like magic, it becomes lighter. Visualisation is a very powerful tool to have in your toolbox. I use it for many scenarios throughout my day. When I train for example I imagine myself moving the weight and how light it will feel. I get excited about what I’m about to do and how I will feel after. If a situation feels heavy, how can you make that situation feel lighter? What will make it better? Follow the path that’s illuminated. Make heavy feel light. Transform how you feel with every little decision you make and watch that weight lift from your shoulders 🙌🏼 #heavylifting #light #lightweight #liftit #liftup #fitness #ifbbpro #ifbbfitnesspro #chains #freedom #fitnessmotivation #shredded #abs #fitnessmodel #squat #shesquats #shesquatsbro #protan #sixpack #heavyweight #bodybuilding #fitchick #blonde #gymgear #goals #vision #strongwomen #strongnotskinny #hoodyup #focus
