Our pasts could be totally different and probably are, but what know you need to hear is through all the difficulties, challenges, breakups, lack of self confidence, fear of judgement/rejection YOU ARE RESILIENT. — You haven't given up, you continue to work each day--taking baby steps, trying new angles—to be the best version of yourself. That is worth EVERYTHING in this world. — Your resilience is absolutely beautiful. Your scars make you glow. Being self aware and owning who you truly are what this world needs. — You are you and that is your power.

Whew! Switched it up today and got a good one in with Dr. @dr_joe_jayme today. This year I’m challenging myself to try new things that I’m not accustomed to. I haven’t done timed workouts and circuits in YEARS, and am used to a more slowed down pace of splits, with sets & repetitions. . . But in my current growth, I’m learning to not shut new things down so quickly and just try them first. It’s a good thing that I did, because I haven’t sweat like I did today, in a while. It was also challenging and good to see where my current level of cardiovascular is. Although it was hard, it was good to be challenged in a new way. I also saw it as an opportunity for me to learn and expand my mind. Which, as a trainer, is never a bad thing.

I may have man hands now but at least I don’t look like a dying fish on a pull-up bar anymore 🤪 💯 Next up: 🦋

Been trying to get back into incorporating cardio into my weekly routine. But the treadmill or bike started to get boring sometimes. So I decided to spice things up with ball slams last night. My wife and I started off with just 5 mins of warm ups on the bike and treadmill and then jumped into ball slams with 30 seconds on and 30 seconds off for about 8 rounds total. Definitely more exhausting than it looks. Ball slams are a good full body workout. Give it a try to spice up your cardio and see how far you get. ————— #grizzlytribe   #grizzlybearlife   #kgrizzly

respectthebar @tovahfit laughed her ass off when she saw this. I had to get it out though. _____ If you're not approaching your movement with the respect it deserves, you're gonna get shit movement. Take the time to get set. Think about the task at hand. Brace yourself for the load. Move with intention. _____ Whether it's the warm-up, a strength set or in the middle of the WOD. Taking the time to get your mind and body prepared will serve you best in the long run. _____ I tell myself to "Make that bar my little bitch!" A little harsh? Maybe? But it works for me! _____ What do you say to help you get set to do work? . . . . . #simplecue   #bettermvmnt   #eastsac   #sacramentopersonaltraining   #CrossFit   #newbusinessmodel   #sacfit   #communityovercompetition   #nopaintrain   #findyourtribe   #mompreneur   #turnpro   #CrossFitCoach   #CrossFitmom   #sfpersonaltrainer   #bayareapersonaltrainer   #trainhard   #onlinehealthcoach   #remotecoaching   #onlinefitnessCoach   #lgbtfitness   #strengthtrain   #getfitforlife   #exercisetips   #fitnesshelp   #midtown   #buildingstrongasswomen   #womenwholift   #fixyourshit

Today towards the end of my workout I was asked “what’s your motivation for keeping this up?” And before I could fully think of my response I said “to keep looking good.” 🤦🏾‍♀️ I mean that is PART of the motivation but not the only reason. Exercise is also therapeutic for me. It’s one of the few things that I have control over in this life. I’m grateful for the ability to move my body. A lot of people take it for granted. Some people aren’t able...what’s your motivation? . . Here’s today’s Leg day highlights. These 3 exercises are essential for my leg days! . . Hip Thrusts 225lbs RDL 135lbs Goblet Squat 50lbs (I usually do some type of squat) . . What are you top 3 leg day exercises?

Hey guys! Starting February 4th you can catch me @techcitycrossfit coaching the weightlifting class at 6:30pm! I’ll be going over safety, technique, and drills with a wod to finish off class! Send me a DM if you are interested and I can give you some more info! Let get it!!!

Alright let’s get to it! 5 arm exercises. 45 seconds each with a 15 second transition. 2 rounds through for a total of 10 minutes. Short and sweet! 1. Tricep Kickbacks: You can use dumbbells for this one if you don’t have bands. Make sure you fully extend arm so you can correctly engage triceps. Arms should be parallel to the ground on the extension. 2. Overhead Tricep: Keep elbow tucked in close to head. Full extension on the way up and focus on contracting the triceps. 3. Bicep Curls: Simple one, but just remember this one trick to isolate the proper region; squeeze the shoulder blades together (keeping the shoulders relaxed) as you’re curling. 4. Lateral + Frontal Weights: Keep weight light and go up only till shoulder level. Decrease weight down slowly so you get a longer contraction. Bend elbows slightly (don’t lock arms). . . 5. Dips (Triceps): Don’t go too low on this one or you can injure the rotator cuff. Keep hips close to step and go until just before 90 degrees on the elbow, then come up and focus on squeezing the triceps. . . . #studiokfit   #studiokfitness   #kfit   #kfitworkout   #redwoodcity   #redwoodcityca   #redwoodcitygym   #redwoodcityfitness   #menlopark   #menloparkca   #menloparkgym   #menloparkfitness   #atherton   #menloatherton   #paloalto   #paloaltofitness   #paloaltogym   #workoutvideos   #workoutvideosforwomen   #workoutvids   #fitnessvideos   #fitnessvideo   #groupfitnessclass   #personaltrainer   #bayareagym   #bayareafitness   #bayareapersonaltrainer   #siliconvalleyfitness   #siliconvalleygym   #fitnessinstructor

Did you know that your super power is the key to your dreams? 🤩✨🌟⚡️💥 whatsyoursuperpower . . . Some of you may already know what your superpower is and how it can help you in your career or your life’s purpose. . . . But If you’re like me where you might know your superpower but don’t believe or know HOW to use it in your life’s purpose or business endeavor, then maybe we can figure it out together! Although I know that helping people with their health and wellness goals is my life purpose, I dont always believe my superpower is enough. . . . . This morning I was texting with a friend who is going through a hard time right now. And we were both talking about our true life goals and what we really want out of all life has to offer.

Then shortly after my convo with my friend I opened an email from @jennakutcher who I follow & learn from for business goals. She is an expert in online marketing but she also helps people find their life purpose. In her email was a quiz to find out if your superpower can make you money. I was intrigued! So i took the quiz & got my results immediately. The quote Im sharing with you from Jenna’s results, really stood out to me!

Mindfulness can do great things for our wellness, the following are just a few of its many benefits. ⁣ ⁣ 1. It helps shift focus to the present moment, making our thought process more conscious and positive⁣ ⁣ 2. It can change the way our brains are wired, something called neuroplasticity, this means that our brains develop how we use them. Essentially we can rewire our brains to grow more patient and filled with gratitude ⁣ ⁣ 3. By learning to put aside external noise, we are able to gain focus on specific tasks⁣ ⁣ 4. It helps us understand our depths and live according to who we truly are in this moment, which takes us to the next benefit ⁣ ⁣ 5. Enhanced connections with others and increased empathy⁣ ⁣ Happy meditating! ⁣

Rant-Last year was a tough year for me mentally as it pertains to my fitness and health goals. I went into the year last year bulking. I had reached up to 220 lbs.. My goal was to get stronger and build more muscle. And I was on a pretty damn good pace in doing that, seeing numbers in lifts I had never seen EVER. That is until I began experiencing a multitude of setbacks. Where do I start? Sciatica, neurological issues, vertigo, hip issues, psoas muscle (core) issues, and even issues with my foot that prevented me from running. All of those things led me into a depression. One of the few things that gave me peace, and even healed me after my Father died (exercise), was being slowly stripped from me. It was frustrating and it made me very angry. I had to fight just to put a smile on my face daily. I also wasn’t used to physical therapy and going to the hospital and having tests ran on my body and brain. I’m currently in far better place mentally. What did this process teach me? That I needed to focus on my MENTAL HEALTH. I had relied so much on exercise for my mental, that the instant it was limited for me, I didn’t know how else to deal with the setbacks I was experiencing. I’m currently learning more and new ways on how to balance my mental health and not just rely on working out. Exercise is great but I think it’s a component, and not the end all, be all. Improving my gratitude and seeing the good in situations is my goal. Finding balance. Managing my energy. In this video I’m running obviously. I hadn’t sprinted in over a year. If you know me, you know i HATE RUNNING and despise cardio. But after all that I experienced last year? I suddenly have this new found appreciation for it. It’s funny how you can dislike something, then have it taken from you, and then God reintroduces it to you later, and it makes you feel happy . And that’s the best way I can describe how I felt during this cardio bout. I was HAPPY. Happy that something as simple as running, was given back to me. We should try to find the positive in every situation, even the negative ones. Appreciate the little things in life. They can be taken away in an instant.

Rare cardio date with bae today! 🖤 A lot of people say that we’re lucky or it’s easier for us because we can train together but contrary to popular belief, we don’t train together often. Not that we wouldn’t like to, we just have different schedules and have to train at times that are convenient for us. I actually prefer mornings (I like to get it out of the way) and he prefers afternoons (because he can get more calories in by then) but we get it done whenever we can! . . Today we both had a 30 minute break in between clients and used it to do cardio intervals. It is nice to have a husband that is also invested in health & fitness because we can encourage/push each other even if it’s not always in person. . . Is your significant other invested in health $ fitness? How do you encourage/push each other to stay committed?

Here are today's choices. #dailystruggle   #dailysteuggles   #motivationals   #beyourbestyou

Guys! The day I’ve been waiting for all prep has come...well kinda 🤷🏽‍♀️ ⁣ ⁣ We all know how much I love squatting. My powerlifting side itches for the big three. But, squatting hasn’t been in my program because well it’s A LOT of energy and you’re more prone to injury when you’re lacking energy. ⁣Prep is about leaning out while MAINTAINING as much muscle as possible. Although, you do end up losing muscle. ⁣ ⁣ So, Coach @linda__alberto recently added Smith Machine Squats into my program. I know, I know, it’s not the same as Babrell Squats but Oh! Your girl was excited for this one! ⁣ ⁣ Anyways, 5 reps into my second set and...my right hamstring cramps up. I couldn’t help but laugh. Like what are the odds 🤦🏽‍♀️ it ended up being the toughest leg day of all prep but we survived. ⁣ ⁣ Leg Day Stuffff: ⁣ ▪️Smith Machine Squats ⁣ ▪️Reverse Hack Squat ⁣ ▪️Step Ups

Hiiii friends, it’s been a while since I’ve shared my heart or even posted. If you’re new here welcome and if you’re not thank you for sticking around. 2019 was a year of breaking through my chrysalis. It was one of the hardest years of my life, yet I have never felt so much abundance and joy. Over the last year I: - Planned the wedding of my dreams - Got married to the love of my life - Bought and moved into our house - Left my corporate gym job - Started my own business - Tried figuring out how to be a wife, run a household and a business on my own God humbled me and reminded me it’s all through HIS grace and strength. ⬅️ that one took a lots of failures & tears Looking back I wasn’t perfect in my progress forward. I’ll be real. A few sips of wine and a few too many plates of charcuterie. 🧀🍷 ——— ✨But, there is one thing I know. There is a God who hears our pain, sees our imperfections and struggles. He will take that and will turn it into a beautiful masterpiece. Thank you if you’ve made it this far! 😘 Have a beautiful Friday! ❤️

More times than not, the shape and symmetry of your biceps is largely genetic. I challenge you to experiment with different techniques to see what works best for you. . . The biceps muscle has two heads, the short head and the long head. Here are some classic biceps movements that you can incorporate that address both. . . 🟢 Long-Head: Alternating Incline Dumbbell Curl 🟢 Long-Head: Standing Barbell Curl 🟢 Short-Head: Preacher Curl 🟢 Short-Head: Spider Curl . . Play with different rep schemes and be sure to switch up how you generate tension on your biceps (progressive overload) to keep them strong and defined and to maximize growth. . .

Well, I got my wish AND definitely exceeded any expectations I had! I am blown away by all the growth I've made and I couldn't do it with all the people I've had the opportunity to work with, laugh with and learn from. So heres to YOU!! My friends, my family, the people I have yet to meet in the next year! ALL the people that helped me make the past 365 unlike any other year of my life!

K-Fit workouts trigger the 3 major energy systems in the body. Simply put, the more energy systems activated during a session, the more calories are used up. In addition, workouts generate a direct response by the endocrine system, providing positive hormonal benefits post workout. In other words, your body gets flooded with healing and happy hormones such as endorphins, norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin. . . This leads to higher overall energy, more effective fat burning during rest, mental clarity, and deeper sleep. . . Workouts are also geared to activate the EPOC effect via our HIIT focused workouts. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. EPOC (Excess Post Oxygen Consumption) is a measurably increased rate of oxygen intake following strenuous activity intended to erase the body’s “oxygen deficit”. It’s basically the after-burn effect, which helps you burn more calories after the workout is over. . . Beyond the science, the concept for amazing results is simple: Consistent fitness habits at the right intensity and variety create changes. Whether you are doing personal training or small group training, you’ll never do the same workout twice. . . This surprise element strengthens the body and prevents plateaus from happening. . . Hope you can join us for a workout soon! . . . #studiokfit   #studiokfitness   #studiok   #kfit   #kfitness   #redwoodcityca   #redwoodcity   #menlopark   #menloparkca   #menloatherton   #atherton   #fitnessmotivation   #fitnessjourney   #fitnessinspo   #fitnessinstructor   #bayareafitness   #bayareafit   #bayareaworkout   #bayareagym   #siliconvalleyfitness   #siliconvalleyworkout   #bayareatrainer   #bayareapersonaltrainer   #workoutvideos   #workoutvideosforwomen   #personaltrainer   #groupfitnessinstructor   #groupfitnessclasses   #groupfitnessclass   #larsonlabmedia

Having trouble getting out of the pocket after hitting depth in a squat? Give these a try. These are a variation of a pause squat I use for my clients. Stand in a staggered sumo position with a relatively heavy dumbbell set right dead center. The trick to this once you start the exercise is to let the dumbbell rest on on the floor for a brief second with each rep before exploding upward. This allows you to eliminate any type of bounce or momentum at the bottom of the squat. Give it a try your next leg day! —————— #grizzlytribe   #grizzlybearlife   #kgrizzly  

LEG DAY HIGHLIGHTS‼️ . . Haven’t done any type of real squatting in over a year. Dealt with some ailments last year that slowed me down and even sat me down. Not sure if I’ll ever back squat again, but for now, I’m exploring other effective ways for my mechanics, my body, while still keeping safety at the forefront. . . 🟢DB Plated Goblet Squats 🟢DB Walking Lunges 🟢Gliding Hamstring Curls + TRX Row 🟢Single Legged Yoga Ball Curls . .

“What workouts help me build my shoulders?”⁣ ⁣ BASICS! Simple movements like front raise, side lateral raise, and rear delt fly. ⁣ ⁣ Primarily I focused on building my rear delts since it brings in that roundness in the shoulder. ⁣ ⁣ Mixing in progressive overload, controlled reps, partials...this is where you can get creative. Align your nutrition with your goals and you have yourself a solid foundation to build upon. ⁣ ⁣ 🔹 Rear Delt Fly Machine ⁣ 🔹 DB Side Lateral Raise

When life is getting uncomfortable, it’s a season of growth 🌱 ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The people and the situations that no longer fit you will fall away. Don’t fight the process. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m slowly learning that life is better lived when you don’t center it on what’s happening around you and center it on what’s happening inside you instead. Work on yourself and your inner peace. ⁣Protect that. ⁣⁣ ⁣ If it makes you happy, do it. ⁣⁣ If it doesn’t, then don’t. ⁣⁣ Simple as that 🦋 ⁣

As embarrassing as it is I’m not afraid to admit that I was wrong. I used to lift with my ego more than my muscles. It took some humility to face the fact that I needed to use less weight. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Eventually I learned to push heavy weights in the correct manner. But that took time. Don’t be afraid to dial it down a bit so that you can do things CORRECTLY. It’ll benefit you much more once you realize that proper form and range of motion should be the priority. Be patient and trust the process and don’t be too stubborn to humble yourself. Your body will thank you later. ———— #grizzlytribe   #grizzlybearlife   #kgrizzly

Been too tired for HIIT , but need a good circuit to keep the body working? This video only uses a mat, pilates ring and 1 dumbbell . ✨You can substitute any of the equipment here for something like a small cushion ball /towel or something u find at home that can comfortably squeeze and engage your muscles without hurting your skin. ✨ The workout sequence: Do each exercise for as long as you can, and then *repeat* that for 3 times (4 if you have extra time! ). I promise your heart will be pumping and your body will be feeling it 😊🤭. . #lowimpact   #circuittraining   #minimalistworkout   #workoutmotivation   #bayareapersonaltrainer  

Weight loss and weight gain can be simple and it all begins with our diet.

I randomly sneak in Bench Press into my workouts because I seriously don’t want to lose it. Although I’m not squatting or deadlifting (and I do miss them), I know I’ll regain my energy to press some heavy loads. My lower body has always been stronger. But bench press, is a whole different story, even if ironically it’s my favorite of the BIG 3. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve worked so hard to make pressing 25’s be my standard. It use to intimidate me. The fact that I’m in a deficit and so much lighter, but still able to move this weight, makes me incredibly happy. ⁣ .⁣ ⁣ Whenever I decide to reverse diet into a bit of a surplus, I’m super excited to see if I can FINALLY hit 135 lbs 🥳 Current PR for bench press is at 115 lbs. ⁣ ⁣ ▪️Bench Press | 4x3x95⁣ ▪️Incline Bench Press | 4x12⁣ ▪️Rope Cable Curls | 4x12
