Kitchen Timesavers

Nutrition is super important to your health and physical fitness.

It's not enough to just go to the gym during the week!

Make meal prep easier using these time-saving tips from Joe Cross Don't let time derail your health efforts. Try some of these timesaving tips for juicing and cooking.

Eating nutrient dense #food doesn't always have to be expensive! Make these a staple in your #diet and save yourself, literally. πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ˜‰ 🍳πŸ₯¦πŸŒπŸ₯”πŸŸ #repost @meowmeix

Before the weights.. before the healthy food.. before my move to New York.. before the certifications.. my #journey of self improvement started with a podcast. Seeking the knowledge to better myself and putting positivity in my ears literally changed my life. If you are not surrounded by positivity, you can choose to educate yourself with the words of great men. Then, act on the knowledge you acquire and watch the world around you transform. FOLLOW GREATNESS. πŸ’ͺ🏻

Influence is everywhere. What are you feeding your brain? @joerogan @jockowillink @jordan.b.peterson is a great tribe to be a part of. Get some. #powerfulJRE #wisdom #podcast

Today I had the #privilege of running bootcamp for some #awesome youngsters. Working with these #kids reminds me of a time when the #choices I made weren't so good for my life. They remind me of a #time when my #energy was directed at the wrong things. I see #light in every one of them and each one of them is an individual with #limitless potential. They laugh. They dance. They joke. They're just kids.

Nobody has to stay in the same spot forever. We all need to really put care into every choice we make. It's not over until it's over.. and you are worth the effort. #proudcoach

I #love getting texts like this from clients!Following a severe #skiing accident, this woman went through intense #physical therapy. Although she has full range of motion, her #muscles have atrophied and it has affected #balance in her spine and hips. Through corrective exercise, we have started to activate those muscles and establish a mind/muscle connection. It is a tedious #process but she is #determined and I have nothing but #respect for such a hard worker. Stay tuned for updates! πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ˜‰ #proudcoach

If you are #recovering from an injury, and are cleared for #training by your doctor, DM me! I'd love to #help you on your journey!

What does #progress mean to you?

Whether you are working to pull a 500lb deadlift or your #goal is to get off the couch without help, progress is hard for everyone. Staying mentally #strong and consistently getting 1% better every day is the common denominator here.

My client Cheryl is taking steps to change her #life and I'm amazed at how quickly she's progressing. She trains twice a week and never misses a session. She knows that the secret is.. there is no secret. Showing up is everything. #proudcoach πŸ’ͺ🏻

You have no idea how influential you are to everyone around you. Setting a positive example, by doing the right thing CONSISTENTLY, can have a profound affect on people in your life. Be the change you want to see in the world. Care. 🌎✌🏻 #repost

My client John focuses on strengthening his core, daily. Why? He knows that keeping a strong core in your 60s means a healthy spine and great posture. You want longevity? Start now. πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ§“ #HowDoYouVent #VentFitness #VentMemberMentions

Nobody "has time". You have to make time. The sad truth is that you can find time to #eathealthy now, or make time for doctor's appointments later. Do yourself a favor, make time now. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»

Asparagus, brocolli, brussel sprouts, ground turkey.. so mandatory. If you take a few hours of your free time to prep on the #weekend you will have more time during the work week and save a ton of money. Its a sure fire way to guarantee you won't just eat whatever when you get busy. DM if you have any questions! πŸ’ͺ🏻

It's never too late to start.

Left was me 7 years ago. Right is me today at 32 (closing in on 33). I didn't start working out until my late 20s after realizing my life, in general, wasn't headed in a good direction.

It might suck when you're starting out, but the long-term gains are worth it. Put in the time and you won't regret it. πŸ’ͺ
