What is confidence anyway???
I have absolutely struggled in this department. I’m pretty sure we all have 🙋🏼♀️
In high school I wasn’t confident about my appearance (what an interesting time 🤦🏼♀️)
In college, I wasn’t confident enough to raise my hand first when I knew the answer. 📚
And throughout all of those years, I wasn’t confident about my athletic performance as a basketball player.
Looking back, I have realized that IT GOT ME NOWHERE ❗️
But confidence comes from winning right? Or achieving and succeeding?
NO, STACY, IT CERTAINLY DOES NOT.
(You might want to write this down - I did when I first heard it)
*Confidence is repeatedly saying you will do something and continuously following through with it*
So I challenge you to follow through with something you said you would do today.
Maybe that’s staying away from the sweets. Maybe that’s going to the gym. Maybe that’s practicing yoga even though it’s 746 degrees outside.
Go Get It! Then let me know what you followed through with today 🤗
Why is it important to move our bodies daily?
Perhaps you already know? Perhaps you need a reminder?
While regular trips to the gym are great, if you can't find a large chunk of time to exercise every day, any activity is better than none at all. 👊
Get more active throughout your day — take the stairs instead of the elevator or rev up your day-to-day activities.
Consistency is key. 👌
Regular exercise helps prevent or manage many health problems and concerns, including:
- Metabolic syndrome
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Many types of cancer
Whether you need a bit of an emotional lift or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day, a gym session or brisk walk can help. 🙌
Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier, more relaxed and less anxious. 🧠
Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. ❤️
And in case you didn't know, regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster, get better sleep and deepen your sleep. 💭
Do you need more reasons to get moving?? 💪

Had the honor of leading the 10am Beast Crew’s leg workout today. 😬💪🏾😊 It was a tough conditioning workout that challenged our endurance, worked the various muscles of the lower body and gave us a bit of cardio at the same time! ..
This was circuit 2 out of 3. The circuit included:
1) Drop Squats: 3 different weights (the ladies did 35/40/45 lbs the men 40/45/55 lbs) you do 12 reps of the lowest weight, 10 reps of the middle weight and 8 reps of the heaviest weight. Back to back with NO REST!! 2) Weighted Bulgarian Split Squats: 10 on each leg
3) Surfer Squats: 10 jumps to each side
Repeat that circuit 4 times. ..
These guys did an amazing job! So proud of you all. 😘😘👏🏾👏🏾 Cause that FIRST circuit was a beast! The booty pump will be niiiiice... even for the guys! 🤣🤣😂🤣😂🤣. #yallwelcome 😝
Want a fun, yet challenging, workout? I do group training as well! Grab your friends and come work with me. Having that support will help push you and gives you someone to validate how crazy your trainer is! 🤣🤣. If you’re ready and interested send me a message! I would love to work with you.

Let’s talk about nutrition since I get many questions:
Sooo my nutrition sucks lol!! I don’t count calories/macros & I am not on a diet.. I’m living and loving this new journey and changes come slowly. Yes my nutrition has changed but not drastically, I eat what I want but I try and tweak it to make better/ healthier food choices but still enjoying food! It’s been a struggle for me to get on a healthier diet but I’m working towards it little by little but for now please send tacos my wayyyy!!!! Haha 🌮🤤
On a side note I was avoiding cardio as much as possible 😓 because who loves it?!? I am now going on 1 month of fasted cardio by running 2 miles 3-4x a week and I can definitely say I feel leaner!
This is Ali. On the left, you can see his first ever time squatting. You can see how he is:
• leaning forward
• heels off the floor
• shoulders aren’t in line with the mid foot
On the right he has improved dramatically, with changes yet to come still. He is now:
• more in line with his mid foot
• weight is in his heels
• no excessive lean
Why is this important? Because improving your technique will allow you to:
1️⃣ train your muscles properly & efficiently
2️⃣ reduce injuries from incorrect technique
3️⃣ allow you to constantly improve your strength, due to proper technique, therefore working the right muscles
If you suffer with your squats or experience back pain, then focus on:
1️⃣ putting your weight into your heels & keeping the heels on the floor
2️⃣ try to keep your shoulders in line with your mid foot but DO NOT worry about depth yet - that will come
3️⃣ drop me a DM and I’d be happy to assist with any solutions to your questions👊🏻
