Watch the video to see how I trained Vanessa to face her fear head on & knock it down. All this was to prepare her for the Mud Run she was planning on doing.
All that hard work paid off. Vanessa earned that Mud Run medal. She broke down that wall. She said it was really hard but not nearly as hard as not doing it.
She said her “I ams” got her through the race. “I am focused”, “I am doing this”, “I am ready”, “I am breaking down the wall”. Vanessa learned that her mind is stronger than her body.
Her mind broke down that wall.

Paleo is how I lost 80lbs. My weight loss journey taught me that I don’t have to sacrifice taste to lose weight.
Raw & real entry from my personal diary during my two year transformation journey of shedding 80lbs & finally finding myself again.
I gave up muffins while shedding 80lbs but now they are back in my life thanks to this delish product!
20g of protein in a muffin?!
Come in several flavors but this one is my favorite!
Enjoy your post workout muffin!

What did I do to kill this clients fat cells in this workout?
Paying it forward from my trainer, Matt Enriquez who inflicted this pain on me a few years ago.
For the soul...
HIIT leads to an incredible high....
New Yorkers love their pot. It's everywhere. In school bathrooms, subways, sidewalks, porch stoops, parks, the river, privacy of apartments. You can't walk down a street not smelling pot.
Its no wonder given the lifestyle.
I have seen my own clients get high on a daily basis. I get high on a daily basis. We get a HIIT once a day of our own endorphins. Best high ever.
It also goes the opposite way for me. Not working out makes me very depressed. It's my pot & Prozac all rolled into one HIIT.
Make fitness a habit just like brushing your teeth.
Do you stop brushing your teeth just because you're on vacation? No! Do you stop brushing your teeth when life throws curve balls at you? No!
My goal for all clients is they won't feel good when they skip workouts or indulge too much.
When I first started on my weight loss journey I was shocked when my trainer had me workout on vacation! My family was not happy, but we all did it together.
We do HIIT in small hotel rooms, try out boutique gyms where we vacation, run outdoors enjoying new scenery, and workout on the beach or by the pool. Sometimes we wake up and want nothing to do with exercising on vacation but we do it anyway. Other times we indulge too much and feel so gross when we wake up that we can't wait to sweat it out.
Now it's just part of our routine no matter where we are or what's going on in our life.
If I don't get my workout I get the same gross fuzzy feeling in my mind and body that my teeth get when I don't brush them.
It's now officially a habit. Even if I wanted to I'd never be able to go back to my old way of living.
A client sent this to me while she was on vacation. True success story!
