How Pull-Ups Can Transform Your Life with Liz Plosser

Liz Plosser is the Editor-in-Chief for Women’s Health Magazine. She lives in Brooklyn, NY with her family, and like all of us, she’s trying to live her happiest, healthiest day every day. 

In this episode, we’re going to talk about how I coached Liz to reach her goal to finally learn how to do a pull-up. We’ll chat about the roller coaster ride of learning a pull-up, how working towards a goal and achieving that goal can change your life, working through injuries, and finding the right community to support you.

Pull-ups can seem almost impossible, and we often believe that we can’t do them. This is especially true for women. But guess what… you’re stronger than you think! You CAN get a pull-up if you put in the work. It will be a roller coaster ride for sure, and some days are harder than others, but you are capable of getting a pull-up. Like anything in life, you need to have a goal, and the process or reaching that goal is full of...

What Makes Someone a Good Coach? With Cathy Savage

podcast Jul 18, 2022

This week, I have the one and only Cathy Savage on the show! Cathy was the one who really brought me out of my shell and helped me become the person I am today.

Cathy is a professional fitness and media coach. Most of her time was spent in the competitive fitness world and she was the first person to create the “team” aspect to the contests and competitions. Basically. Cathy Savage was the OG in the online fitness sphere.

Creating a Daily Routine

podcast Jul 15, 2022

In this episode, we’re going to talk about creating a daily routine. Why daily routine and not morning routine? Because sometimes I get really stressed out trying to squeeze things in during the course of a morning. Everyone’s routine is different, and you can develop yours in any way you see fit. What’s most important is that your morning routine is time for yourself. A lot of times, everything else in your life comes first and we forget to take time for ourselves.

Taking time for yourself helps keep you focused and grounded, helps keep you nicer to yourself and others, and will help build a foundation for a stronger life. You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of everyone else!

Here are my non-negotiables:

  • Journaling
  • Reading
  • Meditation
  • Making my bed
  • Eucalyptus spray throughout my bedroom
  • Drink two glasses of water
  • Getting movement in
  • Getting outside

 

Remember, strong doesn’t just look good, strong feels DAMN good.

How I Found My Inner Strength: About Me and My Journey

podcast Jul 14, 2022

Welcome to the Strong Feels Good Podcast! This project has been something I’ve always wanted to do and I’m so excited to finally get started.

 

In episode 1, I’m going to dive into my story so you can learn a little more about me. From my childhood in New Jersey, where I was bullied in school for my muscle definition (they called me “Mangela”) and covered up my arms even when it was hot, to my career as a competitive gymnast and the gymnastics coach who believed in me and helped me emotionally handle my parents’ divorce and family struggles at home.

From there, I share my experience in college as a biochemistry major and a collegiate gymnast (and an embarrassing story of my first ever collegiate gymnastics meet), during which I experienced my first devastating injury: an ACL tear. After I graduated from college and retired from gymnastics, despite a long career as an athlete, I had NO IDEA what to do next or what to do in a gym. Suddenly I...

Warrior of the Week: Jean

warrior of the week Oct 15, 2021
 
“This is the silver lining for me. To feel this strong.”

Make sure you have tissues handy when going through this interview! You’ll need them. 

Jean is from Massachusetts and has been a physical therapist for 20 years, which has given her a lifetime of knowledge and love for movement, whether it’s high intensity fitness or just basic movements. Jean found Angela at the height of the pandemic, on medical leave due to her high-risk respiratory medical condition, doomscrolling like the rest of the world at that time, feeling lethargic and depressed. 

She joined the Strong Feels Good membership and found the silver lining. She found a way to exercise, and found a community without going to the gym. Pre-Covid, she struggled hiking a mountain with her family in Maine, but now, after several months in the Strong Feels Good program, Jean was able to hike that same mountain without feeling fatigued. But it’s not just the physical mountain that Jean has...

WARRIOR OF THE WEEK: Tamara

warrior of the week Oct 01, 2021
 
“The Strong Feels Good community is priceless. It’s one of the things that keeps me coming back every month.”

Tamara lives on the Georgia/Tennessee line and works in the finance department for a physical rehab hospital, but she also teaches swim aerobics classes too! You might know her sister, Meghan, another SFG member (read more about Meghan HERE). She started getting in the water after an ankle surgery, and after that, she got certified herself to help others recover from injuries in the water. But she wanted something else… something land-based. She was looking for something more cohesive in addition to what she was doing in the water. Tamara fell into the Covid funk that many of us fell in, and that’s when Meghan convinced her to join Full Body Revolution. Tamara won one of my contests and got three months free of Strong Feels Good, and the rest is history!

Tamara’s schedule is busy, but she’s learned to find balance: balance in still...

Meet Our Fall Back Challengers

We are almost halfway through my FALL BACK CHALLENGE, and I have to say... this group of challengers are absolutely KILLING it.

My Fall Back Challenge is a 2 week program that includes 5 workouts a week, an exclusive members-only support group on Facebook, live Zoom classes, and more! We started on September 12th and we're finishing up next week. I've seen a lot of familiar faces and some new ones too. This group is diverse, dedicated, and STRONG! Some of them have never done formal fitness training before, some are former athletes, and some are previous clients of mine who have come back to enjoy another challenge. 

I want to celebrate their successes this week and share some of their amazing stories and progress! 

"I found Angela March of 2020 when the gyms went to hell in a handbasket. My consistency with staying fit has been key in managing chronic health issues. This is not easy in pandemic times. I'm a PT and appreciate skill when I see it, and you are all in great...

WARRIOR OF THE WEEK: Julia

warrior of the week Sep 03, 2021
 
“I cannot believe I can do that many pushups in a minute now.

Our Warrior of the Week is Julia! Julia is a hard-working mom with a high-stress job, and she joined instagram after not being super active on social media and discovered an online workout community but she wasn’t super satisfied with the workouts, but then she found me and did one of my 14 Day Challenges. She tried a variety of in-person programs but as a busy working mom of two teenagers, she struggled to find time to get to these in-person classes on time and then didn’t really see results, because random workouts give you random results.

So what was missing? Structure. Accountability. Strategy. Progression. Julia loves the technical and precise method and format of Strong Feels Good. She never thought that she could have a satisfying fitness program at home that actually had results. The strength tests have proven to her just what she is capable of. She works out every morning and that has encouraged...

WARRIOR OF THE WEEK: Nikki

warrior of the week Aug 20, 2021
 
“I was so excited to find this, and it’s been so wonderful and amazing. I love the idea that I can get up and feel really good, and also know that someone really thought about it, and I don’t have to.”

Nikki is from Chicago but she lives in Berkeley, CA and works with giving away grants to nonprofit organizations. In high school she played tennis and field hockey, and she loves being active (especially outdoors)! Her grandfather lived to be 102 and inspired her with his daily fitness regimen and helped her understand the value and importance of movement and exercise. She started getting into running while she was living in California, but once Covid hit a week before the Berkeley half marathon, group running came to a halt. That’s when she found me on the Women’s Health instagram.

Nikki was piecing together random workouts and not seeing much progress. They weren’t really thought-out and they didn’t fit together. When she joined the...
