Different variations of hip thrusts, with & without weights so you can build your glutes! Having strong glutes doesn’t just look nice, it is extremely benefi...
Not only are these exercises great for lifting & Strengthening the glutes, but when practiced regularly, these exercises can help correct poor posture & fix your pelvic tilt, which can also relieve back pain!!! Most of us walk around with weak glutes that are rarely activated or used properly, & that can lead to a number of problems. Hip thrusts & glute bridges are simple & affective exercises that you can do from home. Check it out!

Carbs are FUEL! 🙌🏼
Same park, same unamused kid, almost 3 years later. 😆
If you want to change the shape of your body, (more curvy, hourglass shape, etc) you’ve gotta add strength & resistance training to your routine. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with looking the way I did on the left, but I prefer myself to be muscular & curvy. I also like feeling strong AF, so imma keep lifting those weights! 💪🏼😛
Let’s see your progress pics! Post a transformation photo & tag me! It doesn’t have to be about your shape or size. I’d love to see some non-scale victories too! What makes you PROUD??! & please let me know if I’ve helped you on your fitness journey!

There’s no better feeling than the one you get after a workout! Why??
Endorphins which are structurally similar to the drug morphine, are considered natural painkillers because they activate opioid receptors in the brain that help minimize discomfort. 🧠 They can also help bring about feelings of euphoria & general well-being. 🙏🏼
Not to mention, finishing a workout gives you that wonderful feeling of accomplishment, ✅ & I don’t know about you, but that always encourages me to make more healthy decisions throughout the day. 🍌
So if you’re feeling a little down in the dumps while stuck in quarantine, get a workout plan, & move your body! 🤸🏼It’s the best way to take care of your mental health during a stressful time. ☮️
Let me know if you need help getting an “at home” workout plan, & let the endorphins start flowing! 😛

1 reason I started using resistance bands - squats.
A common form fail with squats is the caving in (valgus) of the knees. This is often caused by weak glutes and abductors. The mini band is a great tool to correct this flaw in technique. The tension of the band increases bodily awareness, creating a mind-muscle connection in those areas. Performing banded squats for reps allows you to strengthen the proper squat form.
Once your form is fixed, you can increase band tension to get a serious burn while doing squats, or progress to more advanced exercises, like the banded jump squat. The band also forces you to open up your hips, which allows you to go deeper into a squat position without rounding your back.
Whether you are a squat pro or have some cleaning up to do, adding a mini band is a great way to get the most out of your squats and other leg exercises as well. (And don't forget about your arms, either!
Can you do 5 rounds? That’s 15 reps each leg, for kickbacks & leg raises. 😈

I was mentally unprepared, as most of us probably were. I wasn’t prepared to close my newly opened business. I wasn’t prepared to sit at home alone. I wasn’t prepared to distance myself from others.. & I had no idea what a toll it would take on my mental health.
I rely on training people & teaching classes for my mental health. I rely on that connection with my clients. I go to the gym & chat with like minded people for my mental health. I surround myself with people for my mental health. There are days that just talking to someone at the front desk or at the cash register gets me out of a depressed state.
So during this time, I am struggling. It is an obstacle I know I will get over, but it’s an obstacle nonetheless. & while some of you are making “at home workouts” & teaching yoga from home - I applaud you, because it’s been so much harder for me to make that happen than expected. I know some of you are waiting for those videos from me, & I’m going to try my best to do that, but these past few days I’ve had to focus on myself.
I’m going to use this time off to read self help books, meditate, & dive into my own practice. I don’t want to feel reliant on exercise, & social interaction like I currently do. This was a wake up call for me, & a mental health check point. If you’re feeling really shaken up with right during all this, don’t worry about anything else but your health. Take care of yourself. Move your body. Get outside. & know that this is temporary.
Without the usual distractions, it’s easy to become uncomfortable in our own minds. I am hoping we can all create a little more peace during this time, & come out on the other end stronger.
#10 though 😩 Calling me out on my gym dependency. Who else is missing a good gym workout right now? Just being out around others?? Let’s do what we can at home to get through this. All always, reach out if you need to. If you need a home workout, how to use furniture as equipment, let me know. I know it’s not the same, but let’s make the best of it for now.
Should I lounge or do lunges? 🤔
If you need written, personalized home workouts, let me know. Staying active helps with productivity too. 🙏🏼🧡
