At Fitness Redefined, We Kill Fitness Myths ❌❌❌

“Carbs are Bad” 👇🏻

- Carbohydrates provide the body with glucose which convert to energy, then used to support bodily function and physical activity.

“You will bulk up if you strength train” 👇🏻

- It could take YEARS to get an elite muscular body type. Your body will not see massive muscularity improvements in a month. Also, to look like a “body builder”, that individual will eat higher calories than the average American.

“Deadlifts are Bad for Me” 👇🏻

- Deadlifts are not bad for you. They are one of the best posterior chain and complex strength exercises you can do in the gym. However, for your body, they might not be the best for YOU. That doesn’t make them “bad.”

“Cardio will burn my muscle” 👇🏻

- Excessive cardio and a burning high amounts of calories can cause muscle loss, but this is only when cardio is performed at a high level. There are numerous benefits to occasional HIIT cardio sessions and low impact steady state cardio that will not cause muscle atrophy.

“I train high reps because I’m cutting” 👇🏻

- Changing up your rep ranges should be practiced year round. When cutting wright the exercise itself should not be one of the main variables changed. The main variable causing weight loss is a steady caloric deficit allowing weight loss at a pace of 1- 2 pounds lost per week.

Follow me to abolish these Fitness myths 🔥🔥🔥


Let’s give it up for my client, Donald for setting a new PR for Romanian Deadlifts last night 💪🏼

Leveling up 🙌🏻

I’m about to take virtual coaching to a whole new level! 💯

P.S. this was one of the most difficult courses I have ever taken through NASM. Thought I failed, but I passed on the first attempt which felt like a relief!


Meet Joel 💪🏼

Below are some of his improvements in just one month 👇🏼

Plank: 1:30 ➡️ 2:02
Push-ups: 21 ➡️ 31
1 Minute Squats: 38 ➡️ 58

Some of our meals from the week 😋

My 5 step process to eating healthy dinners 👇🏼

1️⃣Plan your dinners a week in advance

2️⃣Make a grocery list

3️⃣Pick up your food items

4️⃣Make a dinner menu to hold you accountable.

5️⃣ Make your dinner menu VISABLE. We place ours on the fridge.

Remember, food should also be FUN. Nobody wants to eat chicken and broccoli consistently for dinner. Look up recipes on Pinterest!

Happy Friday everyone 🙏

I picked up “Super Coffee” from Whole Foods Market yesterday and LOVED IT 👍🏻

Great taste, and not grainy or chalky at all.

Swipe to see the nutrition label 👉🏻



Mahi is great source of vitamin B12, B6, Potassium, and Selenium. Selenium can help control levels of inflammation in the body.

Mahi is my FAVORITE fish because of the taste and the health benefits 🐟

Recipe below 👇🏼

I haven’t felt this good after a long run in quite some time 🏃

I went through two electrolyte bottles and half a water bottle to prevent cramping. Then had a banana for carb intake so I could walk back to our home 😂

Who else has major running goals they want to hit? Comment below with your goal! 👇🏻



Shrimp arugula salad w/ orzo is a combination of great taste and healthy nutrients 😋

Recipe below 👇🏻



Having a dinner calendar has made a huge impact for me. It keeps me on track to get in good calories and high protein.

Try this, and see if it makes a difference in your week! 🙌🏻

Get 1% better every day 👊🏻

I wanted to quit so many times on this run. Whenever that thought crossed my mind, I thought about how quitting would make me feel.

Would it make me feel better? 🚫

Would I hit my goals? 🚫

Focus on your “why” and you’ll push through all the negativity in between your ears.

Who faces these challenges when exercising?



“Weight training makes me bulky.” 🚫

When lifting the ideal weight for your body, you will gain muscle mass and burn fat at rest.

“Carbs increase my weight.” 🚫

This is highly subjective. If your goal is to burn fat, you want to incorporate complex carbs (beans, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, etc.) into your eating habits as opposed to simple carbs (soda, syrup, brown sugar, etc.)

Moderation is key. Don’t overdo your training or restrict food to where it isn’t fun anymore 😟

Use these tools to help you have the body, mind, and soul that you thrive for 💪🏼💪🏼


Favorite athlete ever? Derek Jeter

Favorite team? New York Yankees ⚾️

Dallas farmers market was a blast 😀

Fresh produce, amazing lunch eateries, and great vibes.

Plus, I love supporting small, local businesses. As a business owner, I know how hard it is to become profitable. Supporting them makes me feel a little better about myself 😎


Personal trainers are humans too 💯

I have days where I don’t exercise when I think I should ✔️

I have days where I don’t push myself ✔️

I have days when I sleep in ✔️

I have days where I have pizza, burgers, desserts, etc. ✔️

As I preach to my clients, training is all about creating healthy habits and continuing to make improvements.

Crash dieting is not progress. Exercising excessively when you’re sore and tired all the time is not progress.

Finding happiness in your workouts, your nutrition, and your body is progress 🙏

Yesterday I completed 60 minutes on the stairs when I did not want to. I wanted to nap. However, I reflected on that and decided a nap would make me more tired and not put me in the best mindset to continue my day. The best workouts are the ones when the expectations are low, and there’s no pressure on you 🤘
