Been feeling so much better after like a 4-week cold/sinus infection 😅 Appetite is way up. Lifts are heavier. Sleeps about as good as I can get it with my schedule lol. Overall happy girl 🥰 .
Gonna be annoying and remind yall regularly- but keep up with those health goals. Write them down, daily if you have to. Every little positive thing you do for your body adds up! Thats how this whole “fitness” thing becomes a lifestyle thing. Self care is paramount.

WEEKLY WORKOUTS !! On my fitness channel @tres.sheik
IGtv every Tuesday @ 7pm
Look no further! If you’re considering working out with a personal trainer, now is the time! Stop by and we’ll introduce you to our powerhouse of TrainStation Trainers 💪
Im not a fan of pushing one rep max lifts for general population.
👉🏾Most of my clients are not competing in strength based sports, they are teachers, attorneys, parents etc. They want to be able to pick their kids up easily, climb the subway stairs easily two at a time when pressed for time or bike ride for longer on their weekend time off
👉🏾My role is to facilitate all of the above while improving health biomarkers like waist size , breathing efficiency, resting heart rate, Blood pressure etc. 👉🏾High volume/reps at sub maximal numbers give them the best bang for their buck strength and conditioning wise in my opinion. Of course the principle of cyclical progressive overload remains the same no matter the athlete type.... competitor or not.
👉🏾Super proud of the diligence of Nick.... here he is making light work of high rep back squats during one of our sessions. .
👉🏾Don’t hesitate to DM me for your Personal Training needs. .

I know the 10 year challenge is the trend right now but these last 4 or 5 years have been everything for me.
A focus on on gut health, balanced hormones, minimizing stress, and pushing in the gym without exhausting my body all got me here. “Health” and “fitness” aren’t 1 size fits all. Take the time to learn YOUR body and I promise you, you’ll get there.

A Building’s Foundation
So there are a lot of different interpretations of foot supination. I personally gravitate towards the way it is described in “Human Locomotion: The Conservative Management of Gait-Related Disorders.“ You can stack other skills (like walking, running, & lifting) atop this foundation. “Weak” or “unstable” ankles? This is the drill for you. Well, one of them.
Here’s what it looks like:
1️⃣Apply pressure straight down on the ball of your foot. Relax the toes. They do not need to get involved here. AT ALL.
2️⃣Apply pressure through your heel. These are the two anchors of your foot. As far as your brain is concerned for now, these two points ARE the ground.
3️⃣Now without losing the above, drive your ankle joint out. You can pretend to get the arch of your foot away from midline as well.
4️⃣Don’t let the knee shift out.
5️⃣Mine every crevice of this drill. you’re looking to maximize sensorial feedback. Plug it into the shifting drill. How important is your knee & back health to you?
In Spanish, you could call me a “detallista.” My clients say I’m meticulous. If you ask my 心意 (XīnYī) teacher, he says a person who aspires to have (功夫) gōngfu & learn his art must be “detail-oriented.” I just don’t like half-measures. Let’s get to the root of the issue. You can miss a lot of things if you don’t pay attention.
Give this a try and see how you feel. Oh! If you cramp in any of the three places I mention in the video, you did good!👌🏽
AUTHENTICITY: the quality of being genuine or real. Social media have a lot of us pretending to be someone or something else than in real life. Find the courage to be yourself. :

Here we go again with the “new year - new me” commitments, which most of us won’t complete this year ⚠️
Many will fail only a couple of weeks into the new year of trying ❌
🤔 The excuses will take over
😴 The consistency will drop
😶 The will power will be lost and we’ll get discouraged when we won’t see the unrealistic change that we where hoping for..
🤬 We’ll get frustrated and throw our hands up in the air, thinking it’s futile.
🤯 Shame will creep in, followed by guilt and inaction.
💩 And before we know it, a whole year will have gone by and the cycle will all start over.
There is a way, however, that leads to breakthrough instead of disappointment when it comes to setting and achieving goals:
📍you need to measure the process and not the outcome!
It just takes:
🤜🏻 the right attitude: “I will get there eventually”
📈 the right process: “Here’s what I need to do every day” (which I can help you with - click on the link in my bio and use the code “HappyNewYear” for 20% off all programs!)
⏰ and enough time.
When you don’t see the results you want, you either need to change your attitude, the process, or wait a little longer.
❓But the truth is you don’t have control over the outcome.
🏋🏼♀️ What you can control 100% of the way, though, is the process.
🥳 So remember to celebrate small victories along the way, even if it’s a measly three pounds!

Sit back and take a look at how far you've come... #Reminders
I have a few open slots available. Contact me today for training.
So this past week had me in a whirlwind of change.
Sleep wasn’t all that great and I could FEEL it. I think I was in the red for 4 days straight. I was yawning when I was learning all week. That was a huge red flag. I LOVE learning.
I noticed cognitive skills were impaired. I wobbled way more on my unilateral work - and higher. My rib cage and neck were shaking when it should have been my ankle & hips. 🧠
Certain joints are DESIGNED for instability. I WANT to see ANKLE wobble when someone is applying shifting principles & performing a 1-Leg Deadlift. 🧠
But big rocks, right? I wanted to do so much yesterday but my brain was telling me SLEEP SOONER. I listened. I almost jumped out of bed today. I feel sharper. Then I saw my recovery (swipe left). 90%!
I love @whoop
because it keeps me honest when it comes to recovery. I pay attention to a lot of things (diet / movement / emotional variability / relationships) but sleep? I’m still learning to change my perspective on this one thing.
Do you guys want to see how I view ankle supination for loading mechanics? Here’s a quick tip: you DON’T need to exert pressure on your big toe.🤯
Trainers that squat together, stay together
When you find the right lighting you unbutton your shirt and take a picture!
Pump or no pump! It doesn’t matter!! 😂💪🏻
