Love that girl on the left because she got me to the girl on the right! ❤️❤️❤️

Happy morning guys.
Workout name: Stair walk from our strong man barbell club
We’ve all heard the advice to take the stairs rather than the elevator. Climbing stairs makes sense for your general health, but it also happens to be one of the best things you can do to get in great shape, lose weight, and attain cardiovascular efficiency but I see still people won’t take stairs.
In this exercise u r walking with weights which increases ur heart rate and helps in burning more fat and helps to condition your body. One of the exercise I recommend to add in your workout is stair walk it’s really good for over all fat loss.

This girl right here is part of my “Why.
When I go to the gym she just goes to daycare, she doesn’t get to see the hard work I’m putting in to live a healthier lifestyle.
When I workout at home next to her she’s seeing that fitness is important and living a healthy lifestyle is important!
I hope to show her that a healthy relationship with food is important and taking care of yourself has to be priority so you can properly take care of everyone else.
If you’re ready to show your kids that you are committed to a healthier you, if you want to be a role model for your kids and if you want to create a change that is going to last please let me help you get there!
COMMIT—that’s the word of the day! After just dabbling with different workouts for the last month, it feels so good to be going ALL IN for the next 6 weeks to transform my mind and body! I love following a program like this from start to finish because I know it was designed by a supertrainer like Shaun T who really knows his biz! And I loved the pep talk at the end of the 20 minute workout where he shared his before photo and talked about being grateful to that morbidly obese version of himself because that person helped him get to where he is today.
Check my stories for his pic and some more clips of the moves in this program. And know that if this 54yo can do it, so can you!💪🏼💃🏼😁
Early morning selfie with my favourite primate ♥️🦍 @commandotemple
artwork is the best!
Let's not even talk about how this morning's volume session felt after a fairly intense 12 miler last night and not enough sleep... Don't be like auntie Jodie kids! #getyoursleep #dontneglectrecovery
Wasn’t kidding when I said I was bringing my Pom poms 😂

Started today off strong! Loved this mornings sermon. Followed it up with some #strongman
fun! I am so excited to finally get a hang of these pressing events! 😍👊🏼🙌🏻 That face though 😬
Yesterday I spent my day alongside some amazing women in Strongwoman to help run the Sisters in Strength Workshop at @stronggeelong
organised by @kerryn.siems
You ladies could not have put on a better event, the day was incredible and all of the women who attended had such a blast
What an absolutely amazing weekend and experience to be apart of! Words can't describe how honoured I am to be given the opportunity to be involved of such an amazing event, uplifting and supporting Strongwomen in the community ☺
Being so new in the sport, I was sooooo excited when Kerryn and Mari messaged me asking me to come down with @arielle_cocosgym
, so I jumped at the opportunity. I loved teaching atlas stones to the 50 women who attended, and one thing I took away from this was the faces of those women who didn't think they could lift such a daunting implement, then came out, gave it a go and surprised themselves, you are all just incredible and I loved your high spirits
It was an honour to be able to listen to the stories of my fellow strongwomen athletes, while also being given the opportunity to share my own experiences and highlights in the sport so far ❤ @arielle_cocosgym
I am most proud of, she ended up ditching the speech she prepared and spoke from the heart, providing such honesty for the women attending to relate to
To all the amazing people at @stronggeelong
, thank you for making us feel so welcome! I love meeting new people in the sport, and meeting you all outside of instagram 😜 I will see you all at Arnolds!
After the workshop it was straight on to do some filming for the @strongwomen_webseries
What an experience and thank you for letting me be involved in this! I love promoting and showcasing the beauty of what Strongwomen is all about ❤
Vegan meatballs with a homemade vegan marinara, plus sprinkles of nutritional yeast for the cheese! Amazing! #vegan #veganuary
It felt so good to be swinging on the bars again, I know that monkey bars are the very beginning but my strength was not lost. Now to slowly build one a hang strength like I did before. So happy!
Ladies! How many of you absolutely love your make up products? Yet after several hours of having it on your skin BOOM another pimple surfaces 🙈 *CRINGE*
Our skin is our LARGEST organ, of which stats show that 60% of what you put onto your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream in 26 seconds or less. The European market is much more regulated and has banned 1300+ questionable or harmful chemicals found in personal care and make up products. Where as the US has only partially banned 30. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On a day to day we always wake up brush our teeth, wash our face, for some of the higher maintenance females and males use hair products galore to feel great about our hair. And women throwing on the daily cosmetics for a little more glam. Cause ladies you are gorgeous without make-up 😘
Although there are many factors that come into play when trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. We often forget that our environment and what we come in contact with could in fact be a huge factor to our poor health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you ever checked the ingredients of those products that you absolutely love and can’t live without? Unfortunately high end products does not mean quality. Just like with the food we eat we need to be cautious of what we are applying and putting on our skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some TOXINS to watch out for in the products you’re using:
⚡️Phthalates ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚡️BHA & BHT
⚡️Sulfates SLS & SLES
⚡️Fragrances ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ThinkDirty is an awesome app to use. It tells you the rating of how clean your product is. And if your product doesn’t exist you can add it to the database and it’ll do the research for you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BeautyCounter.com is and awesome resource as well. With over 1500 safe products to use. It might be pricey but after all it is your health we are taking about 🙏🏼😘
Happy Monday! Have you made the switch to cleaner products? Any awesome brands out there? Let us know in the comments below 👇🏼👇🏼
Last call! On Monday my next virtual accountability group kicks off where we’ll all support each other as we transform our bodies and our minds over the next 6 weeks! What do I mean by Transform?

Vilken dag😀👊 så jäkla underbart att få träffa likasinnade som ger en energi och träningsmotivation upp över öronen! Körde mycket farmers och testade ok för första gången. Va ju tvunget att bli nån typ av mark också, så det vart lite kron och iaf ett säsongsbästa så här långt på året med 176kg (inte detta lyft dock, såg inte lika oberörd ut i facet då😂) . Tusen tack @emmamariapihl
för en helt fantastisk dag❤🤘💪 och @rumpflugan
jag hoppas det va ok att jag tog din bild😎💝

***New 5 rep PB***
👀 Lifting in front of the "wall of fame" at @commandotemple
always adds a bit of pressure 😅. .
I'm still in that happy place where @focused.strength
's programming _pushes_ me, but doesn't force me to find out what my maxes are.
That means I get more PBs than average at the moment 😜.
But still, a year ago 5 of these at 83kg would have felt extremely difficult, which is clear evidence of progress so I'm going to damn well celebrate it. 🎉🎊😁
✔️ Small victories lead to big ones. Fact. 👆🏼
. ✔️ Pausing to celebrated these builds confidence and, in turn, resilience. It helps counteract extremely destructive self-talk patterns (hands up 🙋🏻♀️ if you recognise any of these): "I could have done more, I shouldn't be proud of myself"... "I only managed that because of XYZ"... "Person A is still better than me so what's the point"... .
. ✔️ Celebrating small wins helps stay focused on the bigger goals, because it keeps you motivated (all that dopamine blah blah blah) 🤪🤯🤓
Thank you to @focused.strength
for continuing to programme and coach around my specific individual needs! 🙌🏼
Needed to read this! I may be behind , but the fact that I have started again is the first step. Don’t give up!
Is it pancake day yet?? 🤤
Shout out to @the.madness.strongman
for all his hard work, trust and encouragement that he continues to put into myself and the crew at the Lift Lounge!
Love lifting with these beasts 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Could you dedicate 20 minutes a day to:
💪Transform your body?
👧Feel more energized to play with your kids?
🥗 Kickstart your healthy lifestyle?
🏝Get in shape for your summer vacation or event?
⛷Prepare your body for your favorite outdoor activities?
⛄️Finally shed the holiday weight gain?
🙋♀️Look and feel your best?
😅 Sweat out all your frustrations and anxiety?
You give me 20 minutes a day, I’ll help you reach your goals. Plus, we’ll be doing this together so we can share in our victories and hardships.
My Challenge Group starts January 21st! I’m looking for 8 people to join me on a 6 week journey to transform our bodies and minds. 🙌Who’s ready to make a change?
The pic on the left is from 6 years ago and the one on the right was taken just this morning. While the physical transformation I’ve gone through is obvious, the change that’s happened on the inside is even more significant.
I used to be all about being comfortable—I liked sleeping in my own bed, I would only run if I had a deadline like a race on the calendar, cross training was purely optional (aka didn’t happen), I was much too worried about what others thought of me and even though I ❤️ meeting new people, I’m really more of an introvert.🤓
In the last two days I’ve done more than a few things that were out of my comfort zone. I’m “couch camping” in giant room with 9 other coaches, I learned a hip hop dance routine without worrying about how foolish I looked (because this grandma has never had any dance moves—just ask my kids 😁), and I tried indoor surfing—something that’s always scared me because of my balance issues.
But when I became a coach 3 years ago, I began learning about the real 💞 that comes from stepping out of my comfort zone. I thought that when I turned 50, I would just sort of start to quietly fade away because hey, I would be “over the hill” at that age. 👵🏼 I thought that once I was done raising children that my life wouldn’t really have a purpose anymore, but now I have a continually expanding community of amazing women that I get to associate with and be inspired by every day! I have a job that brings so much JOY when I see people learn to change their lives for the better and I feel like I’m making a real difference in the world. And all of that also helps me be accountable for my own goals and dreams!💃🏼
If you’re ready to transform your life with a job like mine, let’s chat! I’ve got 5 more mentorship spots available this month and would love to see your transformation happen! Let’s do this together! Message me for the details and we’ll get you started on the journey of a lifetime!
