Happy birthday Ahmaud Arbery. We pray for the families involved in this horrific incident. I hope your life will bring about change to this country. There is something severely wrong when in this day and age you can be murdered for the color of your skin. There is no freedom in establishments or organizations that practice hate and these people need to be punished. #werunwithmaud #gracenothate #timeforchange


If you're on the front lines of fighting the Coronavirus, sleep and rest are probably the last things on your mind.

But according to The National Center for PTSD, it's crucial to give your body and mind the rest they need during stressful times in order to maintain a strong immune system. As you continue doing your important, life-saving work, here are a few microsteps you can take, right away. They might seem small, but that’s exactly the point. With minimal effort, you can put them into practice and start seeing immediate improvements to your own health and well-being — as well as your ability to make a difference.

The law of cause and effect! #beresponsible


This is what happens when you have a bad connection but it’s kind of cool! There’s only one person in the way of you and your workout... So step aside! #plumbline #reconnection #dontskipyourworkout #livevideofail #pgs #findyourspace


How to grow muscle fast
Increase training volume - number of reps multiplied by the number of sets.
To increase volume, you simply lower your intensity to 65-75% of your 1RM and shoot for 4-7 sets / 12-20 reps.

Focus on the eccentric contraction - it is understood that the eccentric value in training is far better at triggering hypertrophy
In weightlifting you have two phases in muscle contractions; eccentric (easy) and concentric (hard). i.e. Squat
So, to focus on eccentric training you’d simply increase your training load on eccentric lifts or add a super slow method (6-8secs) to the eccentric value.

Decrease between set rest intervals -
Historically, when lifting for hypertrophy, rest periods of 30-90secs encourage a quick release in muscle building hormones (testosterone and HGH) but you have to make sure you’re truly fatiguing your muscles. #keephopealive #musclebuilding #gripstrength #plumbline #PGs #familytime

30-Day Virtual Conditioning Program 04/01/2020

30-Day Virtual Conditioning Program

30-Day Virtual Conditioning Program Opening Soon

One of my favorite quotes from John Wooden - “Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out.”

With the latest bad news that the shutdown will likely last through most (if not all) of April, it's a good reminder to us all that we can still be active and should be active.

We must continue to improve ourselves!

You don't have to just sit around and wait for life to get back to normal... HELLO!!! THIS IS YOUR NEW NORMAL! Now what are you going to do with it? Make the most of each day and make each day count.

The good news is that one of the easiest ways we can do this is by focusing on our fitness. Not just maintaining, because that would be just as asinine as waiting for things to get back to normal, but to IMPROVE your fitness!

Because a few of you raised your hand and said you're interested (not a lot but enough) in learning more about my 30-Day Virtual Conditioning Program, I'm going to give you the opportunity to do just that.

Before we actually get started with registration (hopefully by the end of the week) I want to take a minute to give you all the details. I know how important it is to find something that's a good fit, so make sure this is and that all of your questions have been answered before putting pen to paper.

Go here to find out the details and make an informed decision:

Bottom line, if you've been following me since the days of the Women only Bootcamps, Studio Bleu, or when we officially opened up the doors to our very first facility in Leesburg, that's great but it's not a requirement. You do not need to already be familiar with my philosophy's and training strategies to get the most out of the program.

Registration for the program will open up on this Friday and last until Sunday or until all the 100 spaces are filled. Keep a look out for the link this Friday, April 3, 2020.

Alright, that's it for now but stay safe and I'm excited to help get you started!

“When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways - either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength.”


Clean and non-clean eating. There’s evidence that supports the coronavirus resembles the virus found in bats, which leads to speculation that someone ingested the creature carrying the strain giving birth to COVID 19. The point is, put foods in your body that are acceptable and don’t subject yourself to foods that could potentially cause illness. KIC people! #donteatbats #kosher #gripstrength #PGs #cleaneating #familywalks #stayhome #coronavirusisreal


Keep getting up
Keep striving to get better

Do’s and Don’ts to Maintain Your Immunity 03/24/2020

Do’s and Don’ts to Maintain Your Immunity

The country is facing something that we have never had to deal with before as COVID-19 impacts every aspect of our lives. We have been inundated with information from the media, news outlets, retail stores, fitness centers, etc. regarding how we should move through space and time these next few weeks. Many of you started on your 1% journey with Plumbline recently, while others have been following along for months or years. Regardless of the amount of time you have been focusing on your goals, everyone is going to be forced to pivot as we adapt to our new cadence. Now, more than ever, it is critical to continue to nurture our mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

While we will dive deeper into topics as the days and weeks go on, today l wanted to share some initial pointers as you establish a new routine within the parameters of “flattening the curve.” There is already a lot of misinformation out there, and Plumbline will continue to bring you proven and science-backed methods to incorporate during this time. Take it day by day as it’s important to focus on some easy “Do’s” and “Don’ts” to maintain your immunity.

Our mission at Plumbline has been, and always will be, to provide health and fitness resources to our community and those surrounding. In this dynamic time, our intention is to continue that mission without interruption. In the coming weeks and months, we will continue to provide training, education, and resources to our Plumbline family and especially to our nation's heroes as many of you face extraordinary circumstances in the service of our community and our nation. We will do this in-person as we are able while maintaining best practices, and remotely when we are not.

Additionally, we'll be providing consistent content, guidance, and recommendations for optimal health and performance from our team here at Plumbline. You'll find these actionable resources on our social media accounts and in email distributions. Healthy bodies, strong minds, and a warrior spirit are necessary during stressful, uncertain situations. We're here to ensure you're provided for and the information you need to perform your best. Please reach out at any time if we can be of specific help.

To all athletes still on the grind despite these issues, keep your head down and keep digging deep. Be ready for when this passes, not to lose a step but forever getting better.

To all the tactical athletes working in our communities to mitigate these issues, thank you for the time you're spending away from your families, so that others can be with theirs.

Keep it clean!


We work, we plan, we organize, we go, fueling ourselves on coffee and pure determination. Until, that is, we inevitably fall out either on the sofa or if we're lucky into our beds. The topic of these post I've been giving you, is how to get more energy when more and more of us are having energy issues.
Just like houseplants need water, our energy reserves need regular replenishing.

To cap off my 6 strategies to keep you humming along and, happily, really don’t take much effort. It's the consistency that's a m***a.

#6. Move your Bod!

It seems a bit counter intuitive if you're wanting more energy and I tell you to expend more energy but if you're working out, you just feel better right?! I'm not talking about getting up and doing 100 burpees, I'm talking about a REGULAR workout routine that takes you 30-45mins / 3-4 times a week.

The intent is on getting connected to your source and getting connected to the Creator!

Just commit to a regular workout routine and I guarantee you're gonna feel better. My off aerobic day routine consist of a quick warmup followed by engaging movements (stretching/technique), the main parts of the strength workout and then foam roll. I feel accomplished and it makes my body feel amazing. Especially for those of us who are getting older;-)

You can do your intention setting and stretch at the same time if that feels good to you! And remember to add some deep breaths too!

If you've been following me in discovering these hacks to having more energy but are still at a lost, then join us on Sunday's, Tuesday's, and Thursday's as we take Motiv8'd people on a life changing fitness journey for 6 weeks. One quick click here to register for the orientation to get more information. Can't wait to see you there!


Run. Lift. Stretch. Repeat. Your usual fitness routine can get a little, well, routine. Fortunately, Plumbline, a new slew of game-changing athletic programs, equipment, and workout experiences are all in one place. From a program that takes cross-training and obstacle course training out of the garage and into a safe training environment to a competitive running class that taps into your inner athlete to a football-inspired sled program, these exercise experiences are completely reinventing what it means to "go to the gym." While this facility may not be in your hometown (yet!), chances are this companies unique approach to fitness will spread. Plumbline, where you find all your cutting-edge fitness programs in one place.

Plumbline offers a variety of popular athletic programs for both beginners and more advanced members but we go way outside the box with our innovative Tred Bar class - a hex bar like piece of equipment that you push, pull, lift, and carry for a 30min heart pumping session. All of this wouldn't be possible without an expert training staff for each program, high-quality equipment to maximize efforts, convenient scheduling and exceptional exercise programs that are located all at one gym.

With our 5 focused classes offered six days of the week for cross-trainers to runners to our very specific group of athletes all training on our fully equipped gym floor, this space has something for everyone. Our theory behind this is when a person exercises in a group, has fun and uses everyday functional movements; he or she is far more likely to exercise more often, eat better, have less injuries and lose weight while improving their lean muscle. The spacious 5000-square-foot facilty also features showers, a lounge, and a smoothie bar where you can place your order before class and refuel as you walk out. We’re not sure why anyone would ever want to leave! Plumbline provides all of the elements necessary for participants to achieve their fitness goals and athletes to excel to the next level.
