Welcome to the Land of AUGUST!

WOW… Last month was filled with some unexpectedness, eh? YOWZA! 🙂 August is a notoriously slow month for Fitness; people go on holiday and take some time to enjoy the Sun. Create some balance this month man… Take your workouts outside of the gym; go for a run, try paddle boarding, experience midnight yoga… Change it up! 🙂

I have Several Opportunities for us to work out again in August & September, plus an exciting announcement I’m going to release mid-month to all…Miss you Equinox.




* EQUINOX – 7 Years of Glory & Motivation

It’s not the end… It’s just the beginning.

So last month I made the dreaded announcement that I left Equinox… For those of you who take my classes on a regular this announcement was as hard for me as it was for you. Thank you for all the emails, texts, facebook tags, and voicemails… It means more to me than you know.

Imagine this, I’ve had almost all of those classes for 7 years and then on Tuesday the 14th it just ended. Talk about uncomfortable; I went into a minor depression to say the least… OY! 🙂

Before- During- & After class when I say I love you dudes, I think you know I really mean it…. So it’s been tough. BUT at the same time it’s been great for me. Staying in the same place for to long sometimes gets easy and it begins to feel safe. But as you know if you want to take it to the next level you have to Change; “What got you here won’t necessarily get you there” That’s a great book by the way… 🙂




* The LEAP

What do I say in class all the time? “Courage is not defined by those who fought and did not fall but by those who fought fell and rose again” OR what’s more like it is… What do you do when you get knocked down people?! YOU GET YOUR A** RIGHT BACK UP! 🙂

In order to take your body to the next level you have to change it up right? Well I believe in order to take your Life to the next level you have to change it up too. Me leaving Equinox and entering the mighty frontier of Entrepreneur-Land is exciting and scary in the same breath.

What Equinox and New York City (that’s YOU) have Taught me….. DRIVE, DISCIPLINE, DO IT.

1. Every second matters so do your best always.
2. Every person matters so be good to people.
3. Take every challenge as an opportunity to be great.
4. There are no mistakes just chances you’ve taken.
5. Never Ever Give Up.
6. Always stay positive.
7. Surround yourself with an ALL-STAR Team (TheBigGAME!, SPIN, BOOTY).
8. Be Patient.
9. The past is History –The Future is a Mystery – And the right Now is The Present that’s why it’s called a gift. Be Present.
10. No Excuses.
11. No Short Cuts.
12. Believe that Anything is Possible if you have the courage to pursue it.
13. Believe that you are stronger than any obstacle big or small.
14. Trust your Journey.
15. And Always remember to… BRING IT.

It’s not the end; it’s just the beginning…:)

*MOTIVATION – Mental Toughness

Playing competitive sports I’ve made a conscious decision to live my life with an athletic mentality. I know sometimes it’s so annoying to hear the words SUCK IT UP and keep on going. But here’s the truth… Sometimes we do need to rest, we do need a break, we do need to look in the mirror and create balance in our lives. Rest if you must, rest away, but please don’t quit… Unleash your inner athlete, be the champion you were born to be. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate; our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…

These are the 7 Characteristics of Mental Toughness that l tap into when the task at hand challenges my patience. I always remember what my coaches taught me and I’d like to share it with you – “A person who is mentally tough looks at competition as a challenge to rise up to rather than a threat to back down from.”

Here are the 7 Characteristics I have posted on my Wall to draw strength and motivation from in times of extreme pressure.

1. Competitive – An Athlete can’t accept not trying.
2. Confident – An Athlete believes she can handle whatever comes her way.
3. Control – Focus on what you can control and don’t allow things that are out of your control to control you.
4. Committed – Time and energy focused on your goals and dreams. No distractions, no comparisons.
5. Composure – Keep your cool when the heat is on. Willingness to accept criticism with grace.
6.Courage – Willing to take a risk, willing to fail in order to succeed. Willing to look ridiculous, to take the road less traveled, to make short-term sacrifices for long-term success. Willingness to trust in a dream that no one else believes is possible… To trust in the space between her dream and reality, to trust the journey.
7. Consistency – Keep at it, no excuses.

To learn more about the drive of Champion Athletic I suggest you purchase the book “ Mind Gym” by Gary Mack – He is the innovator of the 7 C’s which brings me strength on Intense days!

I was cleaning out my closet this month and I found an old card from my sister… Motivation can come to us in the weirdest ways. I took it as a sign and I wanted to share it with you today. Trust the journey…

“I beg you… To have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer…”

Thank you Tiffany. This card did the job not once but twice…

Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy RELIGION!
