Prep your body:
It’s absolutely critical that before your workouts you prep your body. It needs fuel, hydration and a proper warmup, to be able to function properly & allow you to do the workout you need. Working out on an empty stomach, without enough water, and without a good warmup, can be very detrimental to your body & cause you to not fully perform! So eat right, drink water & get in a good warmup!


Zone in:
Have a focused mindset when going to your workout & most importantly, during your workout. The hardest part for most people is actually getting to the gym. So, set daily and weekly goals to get you motivated and zoned into what you want to accomplish!


Spice it up!:
Versatility is something your muscles need. Doing the same workouts week after week isn’t going to allow your muscles to grow. Changing up your workouts will help grow parts of your muscles you never even knew were there, until you feel the burn the next couple days 😉


After your workout, your body & muscles are in need of recharging! That means filling it with healthy food & water, stretching post workout & rolling out when muscles are feeling tight. If you ignore any of these when necessary, it will hinder you more than help you. So get to know your body & what it needs & treat it right. Recharge that baby for the next day to be ready to go & kill another workout!


Remember who you’re training for… YOU!:
The most important factor of all of this, is to remind yourself that everything you do, should be for you. All the hard work you put in day in & out is for yourself! This is your journey to get to where you want to be & the only person who can do that for you… is YOU!
