Turning Imperfections Inside Out 🩳🙃

Happy Monday!

Mondays might come with their challenges, but guess what?

You've got the strength and determination to take on whatever comes your way.

Remember, it's the small steps that make the biggest impact on our journey to greatness. Let's tackle this week head-on and show the world what we're made of!

Now, let's dive into a funny (and hopefully relatable) story – my Inside Out & Backwards Shorts saga!

Yep, you read that right. Every week, without fail, I manage to rock either inside-out or backwards shorts.

And believe me, it's not intentional – I swear! ‍

It's become a running joke amongst my friends and family. But you know what? It got me thinking about how small, quirky things can lead to something BIG.

Remember that scene from Mean Girls when Regina George had holes in her top and suddenly everyone was doing it?

Well, maybe my Inside Out & Backwards Shorts could become a trend – who knows?

The point is, life throws these little curveballs at...

Here's your permission to fail

Uncategorized Aug 22, 2023

Happy Monday! 

Today, I want to talk about something that's often seen as a stumbling block, but can actually be a stepping stone on your path to success: failure.

We live in a society that often places too much emphasis on success and winning, and very little on the journey it takes to get there.‍

But the truth is, failure is an integral part of growth and achievement. As an American Ninja Warrior and coach of the Pull-up Revolution, I've seen countless women transform their lives by conquering their first pull-up. And guess what? None of them got it on the first try.

Failure teaches us invaluable lessons, helps us to recalibrate our strategies, and builds resilience like nothing else. It's in those moments of struggle that we truly find out what we're made of.  

I'm giving you permission to FAIL... and celebrate it.

I recently took an improv class, and it had me thinking—why don't we celebrate our failures more often?

In that class, we were encouraged to...

I Missed the Deadline

Uncategorized Aug 15, 2023

I missed the deadline.

I'm getting real with you today.

I missed a huge deadline last week...to be in the Wall Street Journal article all about pull-ups!

The article is crushing it, by the way!

You see, when these reporters message you, they want you to give them info NOW, and their deadlines are always like...yesterday.

I am so disappointed. By the the time I gave her my two cents for the article, it was too late.

Another missed opportunity.

Another moment I felt disappointed in myself.

This would have been a HUGE opportunity, because this is what I do! I help women conquer the "unicorn" movement, the pull-up.

I told my boyfriend how upset I was with myself, and that if only I had my shit together, I wouldn't miss out on opportunities. Like this.

He said, "what has to change for that to not happen again?"

He told me to sit in my frustrations so that I can make some changes.

I know that a big reason I have been missing these opportunities is because I am spending so much time in...

Stop Waiting Until You Have the Perfect Body!

Uncategorized Jun 27, 2023

Today, I want to address a common misconception that holds many people back, and an I've been hearing it A LOT lately: it's the belief that you must wait until you're strong enoughSound familiar? Even if doesn't, here are some other similar relatable thoughts...

"I'll start mediating when I am less anxious"

"I'll start working out more consistently when I have more energy"

"I'll start taking care of myself after I take care of everyone else"

"I'll put the oxygen mask on everyone else first, and then put it on myself..."

"I'll eat healthier when I have more time"

How about any of those?

Here's the hard truth of all of the above: they are all excuses ‍

You don't need to wait until you have upper-body strength or wait until you hit a certain weight or until you have the perfect body to start working on your pull-up today! You can start working towards it in the body you currently have... ‍

The ONLY reason why you will fail

Uncategorized Jun 20, 2023

Today, I want to address a topic that many of us may have encountered on our fitness journey – the frustration of not seeing progress with our pull-ups or desired body transformations (abs etc)…

Let's be honest... it can be extremely disheartening when we put in the effort, sweat, and dedication, yet feel like we're not getting any closer to our goals. But before we get discouraged, let's take a moment to reframe our perspective and focus on the essentials.

First and foremost, it's crucial to recognize that progress encompasses more than just the numbers on the scale or the number of pull-ups you can do.

Second... what I am noticing is that for a lot of you who ARE putting in the work, it’s not the workouts that are holding you back from progress, it’s the other stuff, and they aren’t the “sexiest” or “coolest” things or the next workout fad or diet craze.

Let's delve deeper into why stress management, sleep, and protein intake...

You're probably not eating enough protein 🤷🏻‍♀️

Uncategorized Jun 13, 2023

This week, let's talk about the epic importance of eating right to fuel your way to pull-up domination and see/feel results in your body! Because I am seeing that A LOT of you ladies are under-fueling, which is not allowing you to see the strength gain you want for your pull-up AND not allowing you to see that tight toned body you are looking for. ‍

So let's DIVE in!

Proper nutrition plays a key role in your journey to pull-up success. Not fueling your body adequately can hinder your progress and leave you feeling like floppy as a noodle on the bar (and just in general)

Enter protein, the mighty superhero in your nutritional arsenal.

Ladies, protein is your secret weapon for building and repairing those mighty muscles. It's like the construction crew that swoops in, repairs the damage, and builds your strength to superhero levels.

With the right amount of protein, you'll be smashing pull-ups like a boss! And your body will be looking and feeling like a million bucks

Now, here's...

How to be more positive 🙌🏼

Uncategorized Jun 06, 2023

This week I had the pleasure of speaking to over 100 women at a National Sorority Convention in Washington DC.

I talked about how to get super clear on your dream life, and then gave them tools to persist when things go wrong. Because let's face it... the majority of the time, things actually DO go wrong.

I wanted to share a few nuggets from my talk so that hopefully they motivate you to keep persisting and shift your mindset fro negative to positive!

Assess how you are feeling

It's OKAY if you feel like shit ‍ because at the end of the day, we are HUMAN and you need to feel whatever it is that you are feeling. Something that helped me a ton was to write it out in my journal, which is a great place where you can say it all (even if it sound crazy)!

Face those negative thoughts head on!

I taught them a few different tools they can use. First, write out the negative thought, then ask yourself, "is this really true?"

Finally, write out who you would be if you didn't have these...
