*Fitness is a Journey*

If you don't think getting fit is FUN then you are going through the journey with the WRONG people and the WRONG mindset! It's time to re-train your brain and get LIFE LONG results!

How I got started

I got married in Kauai, Hawaii in May 2015. I wanted to get in the BEST shape possible for my wedding! I tried *SO MANY* different workout programs (some free and some cost money). It was time consuming and the results did not match my hard work. I eventually discovered flex dieting + resistance training! It has changed my life! The workouts are short and effective. I never thought I could have ABS! I store fat (very quickly) in my gut so I thought abs were impossible for me! BUT in just a few short weeks, I was getting ab lines! I am constantly researching new products, workout strategies, and nutrition education to make sure I'm doing the most EFFECTIVE strategy out there. I decided to become a health & fitness coach to spread my knowledge and to prevent others from becoming frustrated and discouraged. Getting fit is fun as long as you're doing it with the right people AND doing a program that WORKS!

The Scale Lies

The Scale Lies:

Here is a REAL LIFE example of how the scale lies to you and really doesn't demonstrate your progress AND the importance of taking progress pictures instead of relying on this P.O.S. 

Left side: Woke up, went to the bathroom. then weighed myself.

Right side: Drank 2 TBS apple cider vinegar with warm water. Drank Pre-workout. Drank BCAAs then weighed myself again within a half hour of the first time.



According to this picture, I gained a significant amount of weight in only a half hour! It's ALL water weight!

So many people get caught up on the scale and get depressed or frustrated when it doesn't budge. SO what! There are SO many factors that go into "weight."

In order to tell if you've been making progress, you want to track other things like: non scale victories, increases in strength/endurance, lower percents of body fat, faster metabolism, AND THE WAY YOU LOOK!

Take progress pictures EVERY week. Same day of the week, same time in the morning, after the SAME routine -- every time! That's how you can truly see how far you've come OR if you've hit a plateau and need to adjust.

Progress pics don't have to be a complicated thing. Set up a camera in the same spot, pose the same way, take the picture, store it on your phone, then do it again a week later and compare! Easy!

I absolutely LOVE helping others by educating them about fitness, health, and nutrition! There are SO many misconceptions out there and so many things that can make you discouraged and feeling down about yourself.

I am here to give you the truth, the facts, and uplift your self-confidence by helping you realize that YOU ARE PERFECT THE WAY YOU ARE!

Everyone has a different journey and different struggles throughout. BUT TOGETHER, we can accomplish anything!
