How do you show for the gym/yourself?

Do your workouts reflect your life?

Do you easily throw in the towel?
Are you known to push yourself to set new limits?
When you say you are going to achieve your goals in the gym do you?
How may times have you said "I am going to start on Monday"?

Decide now!
The energy we surround ourselves with is the energy that is available in other aspects of our lives.
Choose integrity.
If you say something, mean it.
If you have the desire to do something, find a way.
The only person you have to prove it to is yourself.
Don't break your promises, because if you can't show up for you, who will?

why so serious

In 2011 the NIKE MAKE YOURSELF campaign ran.
Girls would come in to take class at ALPHA VENICE
& would fill out a questionnaire.
On the piece of paper it would say:
I WANT TO MAKE MYSLEF _________.

My answer was STRONG


There are so many things we don't know that we don't know.
I am so thankful for my dedication and my drive.
Since then, I have made myself strong.
From life's ups and downs,
I have hung in there and kept on trucking.

It is true, if you say things enough to yourself, they come true.
So let's set the intention and get after it!

MAKE YOURSELF_______________.

MOBILITY - opposition

We are creatures of habit.
Our physical activity tends to be consistent.
The problem with repetitive movement is the Reciprocal Inhibition.
For everything that you are overusing there are things that you are underusing.

Runners:
STRETCH!
Open up your chest
Work on the ROM in your lats.

Arm Circles Back
Sun Salutations
Runners Lunge with Rotational Reach

Most importantly....change things up!

HARNESS YOUR POWER

We are in charge of our own happiness.
No one can give it,
or take it away.

What makes you SOAR?
Each one of us finds our own piece of heaven on earth.
That feeling that you get as though you are lifting off the ground.
For me, it is CREATING.
When my brain is working and bringing ideas to life.
The concept that we can change our path in a spilt second makes me feel ALIVE.

How do you hold onto that feeling?
How do we lengthen those moments?

Look for the beauty in the in between moments.
If the everyday things, the common things, that we take for granted
become special, become things worth noticing,
imagine how much higher the joys will be.
There can be less time/space between the incredible moments of gratitude.

Jump at the opportunity for optimism.
 Do you choose cloudiness or clarity?
My head may be in the clouds, but I want my intentions to be CRYSTAL CLEAR.

The Crooked Truth


This is my spine....not so straight huh?
But can you see how well my body has adapted to keep me upright?
My tailbone & C spine are stacked right on top of each other.
The beauty of the human body is its ability to heal itself.

The truth about me, is that I cannot train like a person who doesn't have scoliosis.
I have aches and pains that most people don't regularly have.
BUT what I do have is the knowledge of how to heal myself.
I know what I need to do to keep my body healthy.
Training single sided helps me to neuromuscularly learn how to counter balance my imbalances.
Now that I have been through injuries and gone months unable to train,
I understand that beach muscles only tighten me in places my body should be open & fluid.

Vanity aside, I want to be pain free.
I want to make smart choices.
I want to be able to explain to someone in pain that is can subside.
That we need to learn how to adapt.
How to train our brains to understand that we are all different.
Balance, is the key.
