Happy FRIDAY! ✨ By the end of the week I am ready for a big day in the gym. I tend to train hammies on Fridays, & practice my deadlifts. 🐷 but if you’re exhausted by the end of the week & not up for something so intense, try adding these band exercises into your workout circuit. They will still set the hams & booty on fire 🔥

I don’t always go into the gym with tons of energy. ☹️ When I feel this way I don’t push it, i listen to my body 💕 but rather than bagging my workout I just simply change it up. Sometimes I’ll go ahead with my planned workout & rather than adding weight I’ll push through with just the machines & just the bars. It helps me to keep my drive while “taking it easy”.

Who says you can’t wear a sweater w| sweatpants?? 🍂 its fall & Sunday, you can wear just about whatever you want. But, lately I am so obsessed with joggers. 🤤 I love the high waisted look - actually I’m really loving fall activewear.

Seriously had the time of my life yesterday. ✨ We all have things that we love outside of work or our day to day hobbies. One of mine happens to be football, specifically pro ball, & more specifically the @philadelphiaeagles 🏈 You can work as hard as you’d like but allow yourself to indulge in something that simply makes you happy! (Or makes you jump, yell, scream at he tv, etc.) {Thank you @ccraig3010 for such a wonderful day 🦅}

If you know me, you know I run a pretty hectic lifestyle. Always on the move, from place to place always on the go. I love what I do though. I’m not sure I’ve ever explained my work here. I am an online trainer yes but I’m not one of those lucky girls who has tons of clients online & I can work from home each day. Instead, I am one of those lucky girls who gets to work with every day people, face to face. Part of my weeks I spend in a large law firm in Philly, working as a fitness specialist for the staff, attorneys, & partners. It’s such a unique job & I’m really lucky to be in a position to help men & women of all ages or circumstances. I split my time between that, & building my own in home/online training business & lifestyle blog & a little side hustle. I am ALWAYS working. Back track 4 years ago & I was spending 5 days in the gym like clock work. I had a 9-5 desk job, which allowed me to head right to the gym after get in my session & repeat. Fast forward to when I broke into the fitness industry. I now have LESS time to hit the gym! The idea that I may workout with clients or classes is so false. I wish, but nope I am there to support the people & teach them how to be healthy but not to workout together. So when I have people approach me & say, “yeah I’d look like that if I worked in a gym all day too”.. NOT TRUE!! But I will tell you what DOES work.
.
CONSISTENCY.. I consistently choose to eat a healthy breakfast, bring my simple lunch, purchase healthy snacks, avoid buying junk food. I consistently get 3 cardio sessions in per week, no matter how quick. I am sure to train each body part once per week so that I am consistently reminding them to move & get strong. The answer is much more simple than you realize. The thing is, no matter how busy you are.. you have the ability to choose the better option, again and again. Don’t overthink things, & if you need help just ask ✨ no excuses!
