Transform Your Body - Transform Your Business - Transform Your Life
Be honest, how many times have you let other people's opinions steer your life in one direction or another?
Tens of times? Hundreds of times? Thousands of times?
How would your life look different right now had you followed your own heart, your own intuition, that internal compass that pulls you towards decisions that you may not even understand in the moment?
Would you be in a different job? A different relationship? A different state?
Would you have started that blog, or that Etsy shop, or that online course?
Would you be...
In this week's episode of Life Unleashed, I interviewed my good friend, Equinox colleague from back in the day, and extremely talented personal trainer, educator, and nutrition coach, Samantha Nicole.
We dove deep into the topics of macronutrient counting for weight loss, how to incorporate the power of manifestation into your transformation journey, and why always wanting more doesn't make you broken, it makes you better.
For this blog post, I've focused on the topic of macronutrients. But for the rest of this amazing...
You may know, I don't generally hand out 'DO NOT EAT' lists to my clients. I feel like that usually sets us up for feeling deprived at least, or it sets us up for a full on binge fest and self-loathing spiral at worst.
However, it is hard to argue that some foods (and beverages) just do not fit in very well with a weight loss plan. (Just ask my client, 'Carol', down below.)
So today I am bringing you a list of the worst foods for weight loss... with this caveat: if...
It's day 2 of The 5 Days of Fitness, and we are talking all about weight loss after 40 (check out my girl Jamie's story down below).
First of all, here are a few things you need to understand...
Yes, your metabolism slows and your hormones change as you age. Yes, the pounds can become more stubborn.
No, it is not impossible to have the body you want. And no, you do not have to starve yourself to create the body you want (in fact, that will...

I'm going to be real with you... personal trainer or not, I am NOT a morning workout person.
If I had to choose between waking up 20 minutes early to do a 20 minute workout, or doing a 90 minute workout after 12 pm... 90 minutes would win every time.
Nonetheless, my interest has been peaked lately. Over the years, I've heard more and more, just how beneficial it is to move your body first thing upon waking.
Being a bit of a...
If you listened to last week's podcast episode, you'll remember my girl Gio's woeful complaints about her tendency to stop reaching for her goals once she got 80% of the way there.
In other words, if she were running a marathon, she'd get to mile 20 on the track, stop and say, "Good enough!" And head on home.
But the problem is, she doesn't genuinely feel like it's good enough. After she gets off the track, she beats herself up, feeling like a failure and wondering why on earth she couldn't just...

So, you want to know why you're dragging and lagging, even though you consistently get 7-8 hours of shut eye...
I totally get your frustration, that used to be me. I could get 12 hours of sleep and still practically be holding my eyes open.
I was desperate for an answer. I was young, I ate healthier than most people my age, I exercised; there was no obvious reason for this chronic exhaustion I was facing.
I was willing...
I have a confession to make.
I am an absolute, 100%, self-help junkie. And I have been this way for as long as I can remember.
I mean we're talking about buying confidence-building books in middle school while all my friends were enjoying tween magazines and vampire romance novels.
But I'll be honest, while I loved reading anything personal development I could get my hands on, it wasn't penetrating my daily life.
I would get all amped up about speaking up and being heard, and...
July. It seems like a good time for reflecting. We're half way through the year and can look back at our New Years resolutions and see if we need to get re-engaged with our goals, or maybe even set bigger ones.
But I wanted to look back further than New Years. See, this past week, I reached the end of my day-planner and I always find it fun to look back and see what I was working on a year ago.
And man you guys... I have failed a LOT over the past 365 days. I mean, almost everything I was...
I remember back in the day when I worked out twice a day 5 days per week, I watched everything I ate, I got plenty of sleep, and I could NOT seem to drop the stubborn pounds that had settled around my midsection.
And as someone who was fascinated by health and fitness throughout my entire life, it was extra frustrating that I was so stumped.
To make an extremely long story short, my problem turned out to be my hormones and my stress levels. Once I got my thyroid numbers in check,...
