Why Assisted Bands Aren't Helping You Achieve Your Pull-Up Goals: A Guide for Women

pull-ups Mar 28, 2024

Are you a woman struggling to conquer your first pull-up or increase your max? You're not alone. Despite using assisted bands and various online drills, many women find themselves stuck in their pull-up journey. But fear not, because in this guide, we'll explore why traditional methods may not be effective and introduce you to a revolutionary approach tailored specifically for women.


Reason 1: Assisted Bands Target the Wrong Muscles

Assisted bands provide support at the bottom of the pull-up, but this assistance actually hinders progress. By relying on the band to propel you upwards, you miss out on strengthening the crucial bottom portion of the pull-up—the hardest part. Instead of bouncing up with the band, it's essential to focus on exercises that target this weaker area directly. In our Pull Up Revolution program, we emphasize drills that strengthen the bottom portion, ensuring faster progress and lasting results.


Reason 2: Dependency on Assisted Bands

I forgot my pants πŸ˜¬πŸ˜…

 I “forgot my pants” for a speaking gig in NYC**

YES, you are probably like, "HOW the hell did you forget your pants?" And to be honest, I have those thoughts exactly. I tried to pre-pack for my Speaking Event in NYC! I knew this was a quick trip: flying in at 5 am on Wednesday, Speaking Thursday, and flying back Thursday night…and I was so proud of myself because I felt so on top of it! ‍

I got to my hotel in NYC after a long day of traveling, did some breath work to regulate myself, and started working on my talk some more to make sure I had it down perfectly. The next morning I woke up, went for a quick run in the AM to pump myself up, practiced my talk, and then as I was taking my clothes out to get ready, I realized… I forgot my pants.. like full-on forgot the pants for the talk. And all I had was workout gear lol…

Instead of panicking, I just laughed, especially because the title of my talk is ...

Channeling the best version of yourself.. When you aren’t feeling like the best version of yourself.. 🌟

Uncategorized Mar 19, 2024

I am a 6x American Ninja Warrior, 3x Cover Girl, Miss Fitness America 2016, and creator of Pull-up Revolution that has helped hundreds of women conquer their first pull-up! It’s wild with all the titles I have just mentioned, you would think that I feel amazing and like the best version of myself all the time, right? Like the accomplishments and titles are full of confidence, power, & success. But the truth is… a lot of times I don’t feel that way…a lot of times I feel like I am still not enough or like I still don’t actually matter… now I know that sounds morbid, but the truth is your mind can play a ton of tricks on you. It can get caught in the comparison trap of not feeling like you will ever be enough, when you, in fact, are enough and MORE than enough

So when we are having a super DOWN day where you feel like things are falling apart what do you do? Especially when you have to...

My Car Was Broken into…. πŸ˜…

Uncategorized Mar 12, 2024

I am the girl who got her car broken into . If anyone has ever been robbed or had their car broken into, they know that this is such a violating feeling. The fact that someone invaded my space where I live is just horrible.

Moreover, my car is something I worked REALLY hard to purchase. A lot of hard work and long hours went into making owning a vehicle possible, so it feels personal, if you know what I mean.

As I was sitting here upset about my car, I had to do some extra self-care. Meaning some additional breathwork! I personally have been following along with this YouTube video if you want to check it out here

But she says something along the lines of “I don’t really know what will happen…” and just the idea that each day we go into, we “don’t really know what” types of things will happen and being okay with the unknown. How to be okay with the unknown but also in “control” of...

How Costa Rica Rewired My Work-Life Balance! 🏝️✨

Uncategorized Mar 05, 2024

If you follow me on Social, you might have seen that I took a trip to Costa Rica last week! Costa Rica has been on my bucket list for A WHILE, and when I heard a few friends were going, I could NOT pass up on the opportunity to join in and see this beautiful world! Something that’s SUPER cool about this group of friends I have is that we all work remotely, we all put our health first so we went to the gym daily, and we are all open to learning new things and going on adventures. It’s like I can FULLY be myself around these friends, no judgment, and they “GET IT”. I know a few of you messaged me saying you wish you had a friend group like this! And to be honest, at 33 years old, this is the FIRST time I truly feel this way! It took time to find this wonderful crew, so if this is something you are looking for, I promise you can do it too! Here are some things I learned on my trip (I’ll give you some recommendations if you want to go too!)

Today, let's dive into a real talk about something I've been juggling for the past two years – my energy levels. Buckle up for the ride!

High Energy Girl Meets Low Energy Reality

Imagine a high-energy ninja warrior facing the challenge of persistent low energy – that's been my journey. It's been a struggle, but hey, life's a rollercoaster, right?  It's okay not to be a ball of energy 24/7.

The Inner Battle: "Am I Doing Enough?"

What Dog Training is Teaching Me About Myself 🐢

Uncategorized Feb 20, 2024

My dog Pepper is a Mini-Bernadoodle and literally the love of my life... but I have NEVER had a dog before, so this is all new to me!  Besides being obsessed with my dog! I wanted to share a lighthearted yet profound aspect of my life that has been teaching me valuable lessons – training my dog. Little did I know that this journey would unfold into a personal growth experience, shedding light on the importance of boundaries and effective communication.

Lesson 1: Boundaries are Essential

Training my dog has emphasized the significance of boundaries in our lives. Dogs, like people, need clear and consistent boundaries to feel secure. It made me ponder – how often do we set boundaries for ourselves? How clearly do we communicate our limits to those around us? Just like dogs, people can only respect our boundaries if we make them known and consistently uphold them.

Lesson 2: Patience is a Virtue

Training a dog requires immense...

It's More Than Just the Destination 🌟

Uncategorized Feb 13, 2024

Success is more than just reaching a destination—it's about embracing the entire journey. ‍

We often view success through the lens of achieving a specific goal, like mastering a pull-up. But success is a series of victories, both big and small, accumulated on the path to our goals. Each day you show up, each bit of progress, and every setback overcome is a success in its own right. ‍

Picture yourself hanging on the bar, kicking and screaming, wondering if you'll ever get there. Through consistent effort, game-changing drills (check out our upcoming workshop for some awesome insights!), and unwavering determination, you achieve that first unassisted pull-up. It's not just about the pull-up; it's about the journey that got you there. 

My personal journey includes moments that I once believed defined success. Making the cover of a magazine in 2021 was a significant accomplishment, but I've come to realize that genuine success aligns with our...
