How to Recover From a Fitness Certification

Uncategorized Apr 19, 2018

As a Beachbody LIVE Master Trainer, I spend my weekends basically training the trainers. I usually spend the week prior preparing choreography, reviewing material, and getting organized. The day of, I usually wake up before 5am to travel, lead the training from 9am-5pm, clean up, and head home! It makes for a long day, but words can’t even describe how FULL I am. The moment I see it just ‘click’ for a new instructor, and hear their stories of how they are paying it forward, it gives me goosebumps still just thinking about it!! <3

As the participant, you feel like you have been marinating in your own sweat all day (because you have been), you are SO happy, but SO overwhelmed, and feeling all sorts of emotions! Not to mention walking with a swagger. Here are my top tips for how to recover (both physically and mentally) after attending one of my Beachbody LIVE Instructor Trainings (or any other certification)!!

What to do when you FAIL

Uncategorized Apr 04, 2018

I didn’t get matched for my Dietetic Internship, and didn’t make it past second round of interviews for a Masters Program.

In case you missed it – my gal pal, Lauren and I, started a PODCAST (freaking awesome right?!), where our goal is to find fellow badass women be happier, healthier, and smarter each day. You can find us here on iTunes (or Spotify or Stitcher).

We recently interviewed fellow Registered Dietitian Nutritionist – Kacey Massie – on her eating disorder story and how she found intuitive eating. I won’t spoil the details, you’re just gonna have to subscribe to make sure you get the episode when it is released next month!!
