Yes, we brought it back! Here are some of the best from Team Fitness Gurls Instagram post of the Week.
As a leader i have come to terms with the fact that my last step is many times your next move I’ve had my heart broken many times and have had to learn where friends are friends and where I am just a cog in a transaction and a benchmark for you to goal towards. It’s my nature to not compete. If you are going that way, I will usually lead the way in the opposite direction. I love that about me. But man, the more people perceive you as a success, people just want what they think you have!! I live very publicly, but I don’t share many specifics about my private life. There’s good and bad. But if I can ask you for one thing… Do not wish for what you think I have Resonate with the emotions I share and allow them to match the potential that lie inside you. We’re better in this world together uniquely paralleled. I’m ok with leading alone It’s amazing the opportunities you meet when you walk your own path ⭐️ I look forward to the leaders I will meet along the way. PC @lee_lhgfx Muah @karenpangmua

No matter what anyone says, don’t you dare doubt your worth or the beauty of your truth. You are not doing this for anyone BUT you. Just keep on shining like you do 💫 💫 Rise up.

This will be my first year in 3 years that I have not competed at the monumental Pittsburgh Pro 😳 becaaaause I am on my way to my honeymoon in Mexico!😍🇲🇽 The Pittsburgh Pro is my favorite show (along with the @bevsgym NY Pro) and it was the competition in which I made my pro debut back in 2015! So many memories and so many things to be grateful for going into this show. I am really going to miss it this year and I wish all of the lovely Bikini Pros competing all the best! This show will be one to remember!🙌🏼💙 @garyudit @npcifbbpropittsburgh @npcnewsonlineofficialpage @ifbb_pro_league

***PRIORITIES*** It’s funny how priorities change over time. I had a long ride home in traffic today (shocker for LA I know) and was reflecting on how my priorities have changed in the last 6 months, the last year, the last 6 years. Today marks my 6th anniversary with my company. Holy crap! That’s a pretty long time (approximately about 6x longer than any relationship I’ve ever been in 😂🤷🏼♀️). It’s crazy to think about the journey of my career and how much I’ve experienced and grown as a person and a professional. Now in parallel to that life is the fitness life and “brand” I’ve built. This is something I’ve been struggling with lately…. I’ve been trying to figure out my “priorities” with this world and what that may look like moving forward. The last 6-8 months I have been manically focused on my career and have been intentional about living a more balanced life. That means I’ve put on a few pounds, counted less macros, haven’t scheduled a single photoshoot and have even taken significant time off at the gym. I know that I want to inspire more women to be boss badasses in every aspect of life, which probably means fewer pictures like this (sorry but not sorry) and I know that I want to continue to build my body and my career. I hope you take time to evaluate your priories and the WHY behind them. That’s what I’m doing right now and I hope you can be patient while I figure it out for myself 😬🤗 Photo by @lee_lhgfx Glam @karenpangmua . . . . . #teambbcom #Teambodybuildingcom #fitspo #fitgirls #fitglam #earnednotgiven #noexcuses #Ifbb #npc #npcbikini #musclecontest #fitnessmodel #aesthetics #fitnessgurls #booty #strongissexy #sexy #girlswholift #bootygains #squats #growbootygrow #progressnotperfection
Be Confident. . Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses and it is only when you accept everything you are – and aren’t- that you will truly succeed 💕. . .

Put yourself at the top of your to do list and the rest will fall into place. I believe self care is vital to our overall health along with how we can care for others. It isn’t selfish to take some time to care for your physical, mental and emotional self. Here are a few examples of what you can do! * Get in a good workout * Have a social media free weekend * Read a new book * Take a hot relaxing bath * Weekend getaway to a new place * Go for a hike or walk on a trail * Eat healthy energizing foods * Listen to favorite song * Spend time with the ones you love * Get outside * Do your favorite hobby • • #saraheevans #fitchick #fitmom #fitlife #fitlifestyle #selfcare #momsofinstagram #weekendvibes #fitnessmotivation #strongwomen #happy #bodypositive #dowhatmakesyouhappy

11 Questions with Paddleboard Instructor, Athlete, Model and Mother of 4
You’re one of the biggest fit Inspirations for mothers on social media. How did you get started in training and living a fit lifestyle?
I have always been into health & fitness, but it wasn’t until I after the birth of my twins that I went all out hardcore in my training. I was on bed rest for 5 months of my pregnancy & it ignited a fire & drive inside me unlike ever before.
I had been paddle boarding all the time and saw the physical benefits. I took it a step further and got certified to teach, I started racing.
Then I got hooked on the Barre’ method I trained to be an instructor, taught classes locally for 3 yrs & now teach privately in my home to a select few. I absolutely love helping others feel better about themselves, providing them with encouraging attainable ways to improve their lifestyle & achieve goals.

What is the most challenging thing about being a fitness model and a mother?
The most challenging part is being disciplined mentally on staying positive that all will be okay someday. Traveling and being a single mother, it’s a constant balancing act.
What are your top 3 favorite exercises?
Stand up paddle boarding at a fast pace for about 45 min. Barre Methodology with weights. And, I have always loved a quick run around my neighborhood for a good cardio, fat burning & mental meditation stress relief.
Do you listen to music while you train? And what’s are your favorite types of music you like working out to?
Listening to music when I train is an absolute must for me. Tunes with a good beat, I’m a lover of good ol’ Trap, hip hip with of course some pop sprinkled in.
Do you ever encounter stereotypes from the way you look?
I encounter stereotypes every time I step outside my home for the way I look. Especially being a mother of 4. Honestly, I still struggle with how people can be so cruel with judging one on appearances without getting to know them first. It’s about mastering the art of not caring what others think, but let’s keep it real. that’s not always easy. I am comfortable & confident in my own skin, proud of who I am as a woman, mother, daughter & friend.
What was your favorite photo shoot location?
Oooh, that’s a tough one, as I have a few, but his past July though I was in Vegas for a week shooting bikinis & fitness lifestyle. This shoot, in particular, I found myself surrounded by genuinely kind, creative people who worked their tooshes off and never complained once that the heat index was over 115 degrees. It was an incredibly positive experience. Other than that Australia 🙂
What is your current training style, routine or split?
I do Barre method for around 45 minutes 2-3 days a week. On those off on days, I will either go for a 40-minute paddle or fast run for 3 miles. When I watch movies at night, I do crushes & planks.
What are your favorite clean foods?
I love daily healthy smoothies, I am a big Juicer as well for keeping my immune system strong. Meal wise, I’m a fan of steak & chicken, salads. I love fresh veggies.
Chips, I’m a chipaholic! also, sour patch kids 🙂
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Skydiving this past winter & I can’t wait to do it again & again.
What tips do you have for a beginner at the gym?
The hardest part is finding a workout routine/class you love to do. Then I suggest, making small weekly goals. Don’t let fear paralyze you, let it motivate you. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment. Set alarms in your phone to remind yourself to workout. Are mornings, afternoons or evenings better for your schedule? Start with 3 days a week, committing to 1hr each time. once you get in the habit of this, I guarantee you will feel so good you will want to add more.
Lastly, find a workout buddy. It’s much more fun to have someone that can hold you accountable & in turn you hold them accountable. It’s a win-win for both people. plus, some of best friends have come from being my workout partners.
