Struggling with push-ups? Don't worry! You can get there with these helpful steps. 🌿💪✨

1️⃣ Start with modified push-ups: Begin on your knees or against a wall to build strength and confidence. Focus on proper form and gradually increase the challenge.
2️⃣ Transition to knee push-ups: As you build strength, shift to knee push-ups. Maintain a straight line from head to knees and engage your core for stability.
3️⃣ Work on upper body and core strength: Strengthening your shoulders, chest, and core will improve your push-up performance. Incorporate exercises like planks and shoulder presses.
4️⃣ Practice negative push-ups: Lower yourself slowly from the top position of a push-up to the floor. This eccentric movement helps build strength and control.
5️⃣ Keep practicing and progressing: Consistency is key! Keep working on your push-ups regularly, setting small goals and celebrating each improvement.

Remember, progress takes time, and everyone's journey is unique. Be patient with yourself, listen to your body, and trust in your ability to improve.

You've got this! 💪✨

This 30-day intuitive eating challenge is designed to help you tune into your body's unique needs and learn to trust its signals. It's about making peace with food and your body, letting go of dieting and restrictive eating behaviors, and creating a healthy relationship with food that feels good to you.

Intuitive eating is a non-diet approach to health and wellness that emphasizes listening to your body's signals, breaking free from the diet mentality, rejecting diet culture, and honoring your health and hunger. It isn't about rules but rather about self-care and creating a balanced relationship between food and your body.


I love spending time with my wife.

Taking a walk on the beach in the morning is a great way to get outside and exercise.


Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2023 will occur on Monday, May 29.

Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.

Happy Mothers Day 🥰

We wouldn’t be here without you.
Love you mom.


TDEE stands for Total Daily Energy Expenditure, which is the total amount of calories your body burns daily, including through basic bodily functions, exercise, and other activities.

Calculating your TDEE is important for determining your daily caloric needs and creating a proper nutrition plan. There are a few different factors that contribute to your TDEE, including your age, s*x, height, weight, and activity level.

It's important to note that TDEE is an estimate and can vary depending on various factors, such as your metabolism, genetics, and lifestyle. Therefore, it's recommended to track your progress and adjust your calorie intake as needed to achieve your desired results.



What's your BIG goal for 2023?

Spend more time with the family?
Buy that first house?
Eat healthier?


Happy 2023 everyone.

Thank you for allowing me to serve you through the year with all your fitness goals and needs.

Don’t get on the scale. Getting in shape comes down to how you feel, move, emotional well-being. Keep moving, keep loving life.


Always be true to you.

Make a promise to yourself and hold yourself accountable. Mine is to improve and improve around my lower back and shoulders.


When you decide that you want your life to change, you’ll find those people around you who will help inspire you and keep you moving forward.

I live by a few very simple mottos.

* Keep moving forward
* Don’t Quit
* You’re worth it.

When you implement those motts in a well-structured training program (because anything is possible), you can change your life, and you can change the lives of people around you.

That is what I love to do.

If you want to chat and see how I can help you, DM ME 👍🏻
