Happy Women’s Crush Wednesday. We haven’t done one of these in a bit. Here’s a showcase of some of the best from Team Fitness Gurls Instagram post of the Week.
Somehow we’ve come to believe that greatness is only for the chosen few, for the superstars. The truth is, greatness is for us all. This is not about lowering expectations; it’s about raising them for every last one of us. Greatness is not in one special place, and it’s not in one special person. Greatness is wherever somebody is trying to find it. Don’t forget to find your greatness 👊🏼 @west_studio @prettymemakeup #shineon #staybright #doyou #motivateyourself #lifestyle #happy #healthy #alwayshungry #neversatisfied #workforit #lovethelifeyoulive #loveyourself #livelifetothefullest #smilemore #fitfam #sweat #fitness #girlswithmuscle #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgurls #magnumathlete #doyou #workhard #inspire #barbielife #dowhatyoulove #strongissexy #beyou
I like being alone. I have control over my own shit. Therefore, in order to win me over, your presence has to feel better than my solitude. You’re not competing with another person, you’re competing with my comfort zones. . For the ladies asking -> I see @cosmeticrn_marissa @lakeshoreveinclinickelowna she is the goddess behind keeping my appearance youthful and wrinkle free. 💉😉

Fasted cardio & @bambodynutrition this AM!🍩💪🏼 Both rocked my socks off! 🚧I have a volunteer hype-man that cheers me on every week day on my way to the gym. A construction worker. He noticed me eating my brownie on my walk home and exclaimed, “you eat brownies and you look like that?!”. I said, “yep!, I’m living my best life as you can see!” Which brings me to think: Are we all living our best lives? What is our best life? That brownie doesn’t significantly represent MY BEST LIFE, but it is a teeeeeenie tiny part of the bigger picture. My prep, my support, my mental space, and my energy!Are we completely happy 100% or is it graciously but strongly accepting any trouble that may weave in and out of our happiness every once in a while? Is it this harmony? Are we happy simply because we have experienced bad things? Is our happiness different? Is happiness as complicated as it seems sometimes? And where in the heck is my happiness meter…and how do I know if it’s full or not? Is a certain type of happiness more contagious than others? Three things that I can say make me very happy is: 1.) Growth: mentally, physically, business-wise, and the idea of time passing while experiencing it and working very hard for it! 2.) My Husband: the strongest person I know. He doesn’t understand 100% why I do what I do, why I use my time to do what I do, but he supports me 100% and that is what counts. To be completely honest, we have conversations all of the time about our lives and where we’re at and where we want to go. No judgement, just support, drive, and lots of love. 3.)My cats: I directly correlate my cats with relaxation, fun, a time away from chaos and talking. A quiet space in which I can appreciate them for their love, create fun for them, and always know that I am using my energy for something good. In fact, Gus is sitting in front of me right now to get off my dang phone! What are 3 things that you feel are part of your best life currently? I really want to know! Please share!💙🙌🏼

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.
