Client spotlight:
Shoutout goes to my client Natalie.
These two photos are about 6 weeks apart. April 13th (left) May 25th (right)
Natalie has been training with me 4x/week for about 4 months now. We’ve seen a huge shift in her physique in the last 6-8 weeks. When Natalie came to me she wasn’t brand new to the gym but hadn’t been consistent with her training in quite some time. The first two months the progress didn’t come to her as fast as she would of liked. I would constantly reassure her that’s she’s doing all the right things and real results take time. I would sound like a broken record. I told her to trust the process. Fast forward she now gets it. It’s so important we focus on what we can control and we need to not focus so much on the external. Better attitude, better mindset, nutrient timing and progressive overload and the rest will take care of itself. If you have the right team around you there’s no doubt you will succeed. It’s okay to get frustrated when we don’t see the results right away but this doesn’t happen over night. I promise you if you live with the mindset “win the day”🥇 it’s incredible what we can accomplish in 6 months. The work is never done. Never forget a strong mind equals a strong body.

But also:

Good luck, Jaime & Tiffany!! We know you’ve been training hard the last couple months, and we can’t wait to see that work pay off & watch you both crush it!! 👊🏻

Welcome to the family bud! It’s been a pleasure having you around so far!

Couldn’t have found a better place to start in person training again.

One of the biggest things I was looking for was the atmosphere because atmosphere can make or break the gym experience.

has the atmosphere I was looking for, motivating and homie, meaning there are a lot of serious lifters here but they aren’t a**holes. Everyone I’ve met here is super nice and very welcoming.

As a celebration I’m offering free consultations to everyone that is interested in personal training both IN PERSON and Online.

DM if you’re interested!

Great work, both of you! 🙌🏼 .fit


Giving a quick Saturday shoutout to my awesome client

While these progress pics speak for themselves (😍🥵)… There are so many other great things I can say about CC.

We started together in November of last year. Her goals were to lean out (specifically her core & legs), keep/build the b***y, & get stronger.

Today, we’re down 15lb AND 2% body fat. Not to mention… Her strength has gone up in all lifts. And even more importantly: The QUALITY of movement has improved — especially in squats, which was the toughest exercise (as far as strength & range of motion) when we started together. 🙌🏻

I can’t say enough positive things about CC.. She is always smiling, always gives 110% (even in early mornings hehe), encourages others in her group.. is never afraid to try something new or push heavier weights.. and always open to feedback & adjustments to make herself even 1% better.

And while our training has been the foundation of building her physique, I can’t post this without mentioning the KEY ROLE that NUTRITION has played in her progress! 🔑

Resistance training builds, but taking the time to learn about proper nutrition, PLUS having the discipline to implement what you’ve learned.. and the PATIENCE to stick with it & figure out what works for your goals, lifestyle, & body… That’s where the magic happens, people!

SO proud of you, CC!! Thanks for trusting me w/ your health & fitness journey 🤍

Trying to grow the wings 🦅


She’s got the legs to prove it! 💪🏼 .fit

My clients might think I’m a sadist for programming split squats into our training multiple times a week..

But split squats (and unilateral exercises in general) can be done in so many ways, and they have SO MANY benefits — in the rest of your training & in your life.

Yes, they’re often avoided bc they take more time, & let’s be real: They’re freaking hard.

Unilateral lifts are tough bc they require more focus, stability, and coordination. They demand more overall effort from a mechanical and neurological standpoint (both your muscles & your brain). 🔑

We want strong, quality movements, which means you CANNOT go through them mindlessly!

Take the time to master your single leg lifts — especially the split squat — bc the more skilled you are in these, the stronger you’ll be in your bilateral lifts (e.g. barbell squats).

And even more importantly: The ability to have strength & control while on one leg is CRUCIAL for life.

When walking, climbing stairs, getting out of the car, stepping down from a curb, hopping away from an animal (lol @ me), getting out of a car, etc. we are constantly on one leg throughout the day — even if just for a second!

To grow your glutes, perform better, prevent injury, & increase overall movement quality for life: Don’t skip your split squats!!

Find variations that work best for you, and let’s get to work! 😤💃🏼

Drop me a *🍑* below, if you’ve been hitting your split squats these days!

📍Follow for more glute building, training, & weightlifting tips 🤍

Tiff dropping some knowledge! 🧠💪🏼

‼️Don’t make these very common mistakes when doing the leg press‼️

The leg press is great because it hits multiple parts of the legs and depending on your foot placement and positioning, you can target those muscles a little more

Because you are in a fixed and supported position, you are capable of pushing more weight than you typically would for something like a squat, however, don’t think that you should use the leg press as a replacement for squats🙅🏻‍♀️

As any exercise, it is important that we are making sure we are executing it correctly to get the most out of it and to prevent injury.

▶️Common mistakes:
❌ Too much depth. When your range of motion is too much that your body/mobility can’t handle, then it causes you to shift the tension from your glutes/legs to your lower back cause it to round at the bottom.
Feel it out to what feels comfortable for your body and your range of motion
❌Butt lifting off seat
❌Knees caving in
❌Forcefully locking out your knees at the top of each rep. This places a lot of tension on your knee joints which is taking is away from your muscles and could cause injury

▶️Form Tips:
✅Keep a slight bend in knees stopping just short of locking them out at the top
✅Keep knees tracked out in line with toes at all times. Try to consciously think about pushing your "knees out” if you find they buckle in especially under heavier weight
✅Stay within range of motion, not too shallow and not too deep
✅Keep lower back flush to the seat

I hope this video and these tips help!! Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions!!⬇️

▶️I am currently taking on a few new(or old😜) online and in person clients! DM to learn more and get set up with a free trial!



If you’re looking to be a better golfer through fitness first and foremost train to be a better athlete. Just like any other sport it is still our primary goal to be bigger, faster, stronger. However, with that being said some golfers need more strength/stability and others need more T-Spine/hip mobility to play at your highest level. The key is finding the right balance between the two but it’s important we make time for both.



Roast them quads like an Arizona summer! 🔥💪🏼

Wanna roast your quads?! Try this killer superset🔥⬇️ (technically considered a triset but whatever🤷🏻‍♀️)

1️⃣Hack Squat - 8 reps w/ 5 sec slow down, 5 sec slow up (take your time and just enjoy the burnnn)
2️⃣Leg Extension - 20 heavy bottom partials right into 20 full reps
3️⃣Goblet Squat w/ lighter weight - 25 reps (burn it out)

Quads will be the death of me, lol they just hurt so good. Curious though… what’s your favorite quad focused exercise?🤔 the hack squat and I have a love/hate relationship..

Don’t forget to save this workout for later and lemme know how it goes!😏
