I ReIntroduced Myself...To Myself!



I ReIntroduced Myself...To Myself!

Many of you may know, of the many hats that I wear, I'm also a bodybuilder~An NPC Master Figure Competitor. I've been successful in my quest and I'm proud of my wins & accomplishments. I took a break from the sport (of which I truly love) because I needed to reintroduce myself To myself again. Bodybuilding or any sport for that matter, is a very competitive sport. If you are not grounded and centered, it will take you to a space where you don't want to be, mentally and spiritually...if you don't have thick skin!

I'm glad I took this time off because I had fell into a state of depression. I was going through all kinds of emotions: anxiety attacks, body shaming myself, gained 50 lbs in less than a year after my last show; wondered what my followers/fans would think (I got over that real quick); I didn't have the support of people I thought would support...except my daughters...I got over that real quick too.

There's much more to this story. However, I won't bore you with the details. Maybe I'll put in a book 😏!

Often times people get so caught up in outside entities, they lose site of who they really are. When you take on this behavior, you're trying to please others instead of coming from a place of true authenticity. The REAL You! 

When you don't fall into the limitations of others people expectation, you'll fine tune the original you. And that's what I've been doing. I've always had faith, had a lifestyle of spiritual practice in addition to being a beast in the gym. Guess what? It's more to been fit that just working out. I had to level up my state of being. I can't serve and transform lives pouring from an empty vessel.

I became Spiritually Fit, Synchronizing my inner being with a power that's bigger than me. I AM a spiritual being, having a human experience. I tapped into my higher self and reconnected with my SOURCE Energy- God ~ The Universe ~ All Knowing. I'm meeting people that are in alignment with my energy; my chakras are aligned (well almost- I'm still working on that heart thingy), my energy is light, I AM abundant, healthy and sexy af; I'm embracing my youthfulness while representing the 50's club! Yes, I'm 50 years young & I hear 50 is the new 30! I have an awesome relationship with my 2 adult daughters (29 & 22 years young).  I'm attracting phenomenal clients who desires to experience true transformation in their overall well-being while adding years to their lives, gaining more energy, being more confident AND getting their sexy back!

Most importantly, I'm operating and giving back to the world the Real Cheryl who was put on this earth to serve and transform lives. I know I haven't even reached the peak of my life and excited about what's to come!

It took me a minute to get here. I had to get pass all that lies I was telling myself (in my head), establish a new belief system and forgive myself! It doesn't have to take you that long to get to a place of sovereignty. With the right guidance, being coachable and Doing The Work, you can level up your own path of spiritual & physical fitness journey!

Take a look at where are you are. Are you living Your Best Life or Are You Living Someone Else's Life?

Signed,
Living My Best Life!

PS: I'll be hitting the stage again in 2019 but from a difference space mentally, spiritually and emotionally!

Looks Aren’t Always What They Seem!




Looks Aren't Always What They Seem!


Although I appear to be very confident, bold and beautiful, I was a hot mess in this photo. I was depressed, unhappy with myself, I had very bad eating habits, wasn't exercising consistently as I usually did; I had anxiety attacks often, shortness of breath- often, headaches - often, having pity parties often and I repelled men. All I knew how to do during this time was complain and be in a constant state of "woe is me" syndrome.

I would put on a good face in public but was dying inside! Although I appeared to be very confident, bold and beautiful, I was a hot mess in this photo.

I remember this event like it was yesterday. You see, the elevator wasn't working and all the guests had to take the stairs. I was embarrassed because I hadn’t even made it to the 2nd floor and was completely out of breath.

It STILL took me a while to get it together and come to terms with SAYING & SEEKING for better, because my ACTIONS weren’t in ALIGNMENT with my desires (Wellness/Fitness).

It wasn’t until I made a DECISION to Love Me, Take Care of Me - Mind, Body & Soul so that I wouldn't continue the generational habits and dis-eases of my family. You can say a million affirmations, but if YOU don’t Believe in YOU, you’re speaking stale & dead air. If You don't take ACTION, you will stay the way you are or deteriorate. 

It took me years to say Yes to Me. You don't have to go through that. It's too much help out here to jump-start a healthier lifestyle catered and customized to you. I'm not talking about these fake, fly by night fitness trends. I'm talking about helping you get to the CORE of why you're not reaching your Wellness and Fitness Goals so you can remain successful in your journey. 

What kind of Results have you gotten by feeling sorry for yourself or letting outside forces/circumstances or embracing your excuses? You may not EVER be ready, but if you don’t start today, When? Don't let the doctors gives you the report you don't want to hear and now you're FORCED to take care of yourself?

Taking on that type of mindset and behavior is doing not only yourself a disservice, but those that are around you and are depending on you! Oh, and let's not forget the Creator (God) who granted you LIFE! It's your responsibility to take care of yourself and not allow outside forces to dominate your well-being.

Love On You! Get The Help You Need! Get To The CORE of what's really holding you back, So You Can Get F.I.T.,  strengthen & sculpt your body, impress your doctor, nurture your spirit, LIVE longer and have optimal health and well -being.

You MUST do the Mindset INNER Work before you can get the physical/exterior goals!

Work From a The Neck Up, Then The Results Will Show Up From a The Neck Down!

5 Major Strategies That Most Trainers 

Don't Implement That's Critical 

To Your Fitness Success!




Often times many become frustrated with not achieving their fitness goals simply because they don't have a tangible plan and the right coaching. So many will take the approach of, " I'll just start on Monday".  then you will begin to occupy yourself with other things to take the place of exercising such has checking your emails, spending hours on social media, getting the kids or grand kids off to school or you'll start cleaning...Just so you won't have to meet that dreaded appointment with your personal trainer. 

I've seen many clients of other trainers just show up and go through the motions or are not fully committed to the game...simply because most trainers aren't fully committed to the client. It's goes something like this: "Ok, I have 8 clients today, let me go ahead and get them in and out so I can get to the next clients and go on about my day!" 

Now I'm not say ALL trainers are like this but the ones I've encountered over the years treat this critical life transformation and a prison number.

Here are some strategies to Re-Think to see some tangible results in your Wellness and Fitness journey and what most trainer don't implement:

  1. Innercise - Most trainers are not trained to get to the C.O.R.E. (root problem) of why you are reaching your results. They are not trained to COACH you, they are trained to train you. Therefore, you are showing up, paying your money and showing little to no progress. It's More To Being Fit Than Just Working Out. You have to Dive Deep, get to the root cause and set you up for success.
  2. Accountability - Either you'll show up for your training session or you don't. If you don't show up, you're still charged for the session and this becomes "break-time" for the trainer. Accountability creates an opportunity to grow and gives you an external perspective on what you are not able to see for yourself.
  3. Change Your Intentions - If you have known me or have seen any of my workouts, everything I do has intentions. What if YOU actually looking at working out as Stepping Into Your Power you never knew you had? Or Building The Strength and Resilience of an athlete with every squat, bicep curl, lunge, etc.  
  4. Challenge You - Some trainers do challenge you...Some Don't. Try something new or challenge your trainer to try something new with you. Remember, most trainers don't have a full program for you to experience dramatic transformation. So you will either seek other help or challenge THEM to step it up!
  5. Actual Coaching - When you have a training session, that's exactly what you're getting- Training. There's no actual Coaching taking place to ensure continued success. Coaching creates a safe place to work through everything. Sometimes people are vulnerable and it helps to bring awareness to something that you may not have thought helps.


Coaching has made many and myself a more resilient person. You must invest in the knowledge, skill set and results you want. There is no way around it. Winging it frustrates you. Paying for something that you're not getting the results with, will frustrate you. Not being clear on your goals will frustrate you. 

Coaching can make you a better person, parent, friend and have better relationships and allows you an opportunity to tap into your own Living Laboratory.


I'd love to hear your feedback. Post your comments below.

And if you're interested in nurturing your spirit, dropping that weight, strengthen/sculpting your body, impressing your doctor and extending your life. Be a part of my LIVE Group Coaching program to achieve the results you desire.

Hypertension and Cholesterol



Hypertension and Cholesterol 

We often hear about hypertension and cholesterol when we are
being diagnosed from our doctors or at a health and wellness fair, but wouldn’t it be nice to know how to prevent it? Establish preventive care maintenance? Knowledge on these topics are important to the community, not just those who have been told they need to improve their numbers. Whether you fall high or low on the spectrum, you should know your numbers. 



What is Hypertension?
To understand hypertension you must first understand what exactly blood pressure is, other than knowing you want your numbers to be close to 120/80 as possible.  

Blood pressure is the measurement of how hard your blood forces against the blood vessel walls. Hypertension or high blood pressure  is when the heart has to work harder than usual to pump blood out.



What is Cholesterol?
Cholesterol itself is a type of fatty substance that your body uses to make some hormones produce Vitamin D and build cells. Some cholesterol we make ourselves and some comes from the foods we eat.  Too much cholesterol can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attack and stroke.  What does the excess cholesterol actually do or where does it go? It sticks to the walls of Your arteries, over time this build up will lead to narrow pathways and clots an form, preventing blood flow.


Prevention?
The rush Hypertension and Cholesterol are often intimidating when you are unaware of how it works; however, there is a plus that both Hypertension and high cholesterol are manageable! In addition to there being medication to keep your numbers in control when the are out of control. There are things you can do every day to prevent to help prevent the risks from affecting you.  

     
 

  • Stay Active - Strive for 30 minuets of planned activity every day.
  • Have an overall balance of fruits, vegetables,whole grain,lean proteins and healthy fats in your diet regularly.
  • Avoid over consuming foods that are high in cholesterol, sodium and sugar.

Benefits Of Massage Therapy For Athletes






Benefits Of Massage Therapy For Athletes

 

My goal is to promote and bring awareness to the value of massage therapy to the fitness industry and professional athletes by simplifying noteworthy benefits applicable to massage therapy.

When including massage as part of your exercise regimen, many benefits of massage alleviates delayed onset muscle (DOMS) soreness after a strenuous workout. Most often some athletes continue to continue strenuous exercises without the maintenance care that needs to accompany this lifestyle.

Here are some of the benefits to athlete incorporating massage into their regimen:

  1. Massage sessions decrease significantly muscle soreness: It's effective in alleviating DOMS (delayed onset muscles) and improving muscle performance.

  2.  Massage Therapy Increases Flexibility: For an athlete to maintain optimal performance, they must maintain high level of flexibility. 

  3. Massage Therapy Improves Circulation: with proper circulation, the athletes, they can breathe more easily and more effectively. Massage Therapy improves blood flow which in improves circulation and enhances performance levels.

  4. Massage Therapy Promotes Better Sleep Patter:  Getting regular massages, sleep better and helps the athletes perform at optimal levels.

  5. Massage Therapy Increases Relaxation Levels: Research has shown that athletes have a hard time relaxing and can affect their overall health. Massage puts one's mind & body in a relaxed state thus reducing the negative psychological effects stress.

 

As an athlete, there are different types of massages you may receive. Each one has it's own benefits such as Sports Massage often involves fast-paced techniques, stretching and other types of techniques. It can be focused on a pre-workout stretch and opportunity to warm up the muscles or used as a post-workout massage designed to reduce soreness and increase flexibility.

 

Myofascial Therapy (aka Deep Tissue Massage) usually includes neuromuscular therapy and the release of trigger points, can be very effective, because it works on particular conditions in layers of muscles and fascia. This type of massage often brings intense sensations associated with trigger points.

 

These results translate into pain relief, re-building of muscles, and acceleration in the recovery from strenuous exercise for athletes of all kinds. Massage should also be included as a lifestyle whether you are an athlete or not. The benefits are aid to your overall well-being.

If you're ready to LIVE a healthier, happier, sexier, fit and confident lifestyle...
