I am not only passionate about my own fitness but also being able to share this love for fitness with other people. My parents met at a gym so I was basically born into it!
When the opportunity came to create a 10 minute abs program, I had to jump on it. Once we brought PowerAbs out in the world, people quickly took to it! The things that really attracted people were that it was only 10 minutes, completely equipment free, and could be done anywhere, even when traveling! I feel so lucky that I get the opportunity to help make others healthier. It has been incredible building a line of 10 minute programs for a variety of body parts in addition to abs including PowerGlutes, PowerLegs, and Summer PowerArms. This means there is no excuse not for people to get in a great workout.
The PHIIT Programs just require a pair of dumbbells, or level 1 of PHIIT and Low Impact PHIIT are equipment free. We now have 22 programs and over 200,000 people around the world doing these programs. Seeing all of the amazing before and after pictures from the 30 day programs keeps me wanting to help others reach their health and fitness goals. Our Facebook group community is full of motivational and inspirational people that also makes me want to be better. I would say that is a win for all of us!
You have today’s enviable Instagram following of 494K and how these professional achievements have acted as a motivator to further your professional career as a fitness trainer and also as a catalyst to achieve spectacular heights in Crossfit training and also as an athlete?
Obviously it is incredible reaching your goals for yourself because you know the hard work that goes into it, but there is also something about being able to tell your fans on social media about an amazing accomplishment. It is similar to fans at a competition. Doing well is so incredible but means so much more when you have others to celebrate with!
I feel so lucky that I have been able to help share my knowledge with others on social media as well. I love health and fitness and am lucky I am able to share that love and passion with others. Many people have started doing my PowerAbs and PHIIT programs that told me they didn’t enjoy working out until doing these 10 minute programs. Hearing things like that just bring me so much joy. Without my social following and connecting with so many amazing people, none of that would be possible. You can say I am super thankful for it!
Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding CrossFit athlete girls, who all are your fans and shall like to know from you for their climb to the ladder of success in the field of CrossFit Games competitions?
Have fun! When I was training and competing, I absolutely loved the process. I got to push the limits and see where I could take my body. This is one reason I believe I was so successful not only in my CrossFit career but also as a gymnast and have now transferred over to my business, PowerAbs and PHIIT. Another thing I want to remind young girls who want to compete in CrossFit is to be patient. Do not rush into advanced gymnastics movements until you can first do them strictly.
Also do not be in a rush to put a ton of weight on your bar when you are lifting until you master the technique. There are so many different and fun things to do in CrossFit so you won’t be great at all of them from day 1 but that is one reason I loved the sport. There is always something to work on and get better at. However there will also be things you are great at, so try and be the best you possibly can in those. Enjoy the process and remember to have fun every day!
