We all have something we are passionate about, something we love so much that the mere thought of it gets us excited. For me, it’s probably no surprise that it’s fitness. Since I’m so passionate about it, I want to get better at it… for me and my clients. I want a better understanding… a better knowledge of fitness, of the way the human body moves. One way for me to get better is to learn more, to educate myself. I do this by reading and researching as much as I can of the best and highest quality information I can find. Notice I said “quality”. It’s always best to have quality over quantity, especially when it comes to training. That’s why I pick up books from some of the best names in the industry. I don’t just read these books to read them and then stack them back on my book shelf. I read them to understand them, to look back at them for resources, to help design custom programs for my clients, and to experiment on myself. Which, if any, are your favorite books you like to read and refer back to? Do you have suggestions for anymore books I can pick up? It doesn’t necessarily have to be just fitness or nutrition related; it can be something like Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People” - books that will help make me a better person. @ReebokONE #ReebokONE #KnowledgeIsPower

Who else thinks it’s crazy how we can be our own worst enemy? What I mean by that is looking in the mirror and saying, ‘Ok, this looks good, but this needs to improve’, or, ‘Ugh, why do my legs look like that?’, etc. I think it’s safe to say this is something so many of us do - men and women alike. We are never satisfied, which can be good because it pushes us to strive to become the best version of ourselves, but then it could be bad because why can’t we just be happy and grateful for how far we have come and what we look like now? I’m saying this because the other night I wore some tight, short jean shorts because there was no way I was wearing pants because it was just too hot out. At first, I was like hmmm can I wear these? Are my legs too “quadzilla” for these? Then, I told myself to stop. I train hard and I’ve worked for my body and I do love my athletic look. Fuck a thigh gap, and, fuck what anyone thinks. This is my body and I love it the way it is. So, I rocked those jean shorts, and, later, I saw a video and pictures of myself and I thought, damn, I look great! So, don’t be so hard on yourself because when you see yourself from a different view, it’s amazing how you really look. Be confident. Rock the body you have. You’re beautiful just the way you are! Ok, now I’m going to eat breakfast - fuel my body - and go hiking. Happy Sunday✌️☀️😊 @ReebokONE #ReebokONE

DOUBLE TAP TO SAY HELLO AND GOOD MORNING! 👆👆Me and my favorite penguin pants say, “Good Morning, World!” 🐧☀️🙋All this week I’m working on mobility and static holds, and doing some rowing and biking. My body told me earlier in the week that it is just beat up from my workouts and needs a break, so I’m listening to it! This doesn’t mean I’m totally resting for a week, it means I’m taking a step back to focus on letting my body heal while doing low-impact exercises. I tweaked my hamstring again (did it once a couple years ago sprinting to first base in a softball game), so I’m taking it a little easier this week. I have other aches and pains that I’m also nursing. Hiccups like this is good because it forces me to learn more about my body and how it moves and how I can help it get to where I need to be so I can continue exercising pain free. I also strongly believe in acupuncture so I’m hoping I can get in with someone soon. Does anyone else see an acupuncturist? What are your thoughts/experiences? Enjoy your Friday!!! @reebokone #reebokone

Don’t talk about it; be about it.✌️This is a life lesson I’ve learned from my dad. He’s never been one to say he’s going to do something, he just does it. To me, that speaks so much about a person’s character. If you find yourself saying you’ll do something, but realize days, weeks, and even months later you haven’t done it, change that. Practice doing this with one small thing in your life. Baby steps!👶👟@ReebokONE #ReebokONE

Because sometimes✌️is better than☝️. Focused on upper body tonight since my lower body is still recovering from Sunday’s hike😜: overhead press; burpees, pull-ups, ball throws; DB bench press, plyo pushups, cable pull-throughs; and pike pushups, DB tricep extensions, DB squat thrusters. 💦🔥💦🔥

Yea, sometimes I do wear “normal” clothes. Actually, for me, normal clothes are my workout clothes… So, this is not normal haha 😄 My abnormal clothes takes up probably 1/4 of my closet space. The rest is filled with @reebokone. This doesn’t make me mad at all. #reebokone
