This is how I’ve felt most of the holiday season, feat. a lot of red clothing and a lot of friends and family and love and a lot of fairy lights and a lot of smiling so big that my eyes can’t stay open. 📸: @swiss_missin #vscocam #vsco #self #christmas #holidays #loveyourdamnself #loveyourdamnpeople #loveyourdamnlife #lifeisgood #yearofnofear #twentygreateen

I somehow pulled off making 3 pies over the past 24 hours, even while working an almost 11 hour cheese shift 🤷🏼‍♀️ Classic pecan, classic pumpkin custard, & bourbon pear with a ginger hazelnut crumble. #vscocam #vsco #pie #baking #thanksgiving #eats #alyssaskitchen #loveyourdamnself #lifeisgood #yearofnofear #twentygreateen

I often get asked “What is your style of training?” And I usually grin because it is a loaded question for me to answer. 😁That is because I don’t really train one specific “style”, I utilize all the knowledge I have gained through my education but also through my mentors, other coaches, workshops/courses, as well as my own research and feeling how certain things feel in my own body. 💪I use yoga, corrective exercises, mobility drills, stability drills, resistance training, barbell training as well as self release techniques that I can teach you to help recovery as well 👍 When I assess someone I always start with breathing and core stability. In my eyes, this is like kindergarten for the human body, actually maybe more like Pre-K. Because all of our movement patterns stem from the core and a lack of core strength and stability can cause you to place a larger load on a different area as a compensation, which can in turn lead to an imbalance. From there I design a program based on my clients goals and needs and what I see during different movement assessments. If they like yoga, I incorporate strengthening into yoga like movements. If they are more into barbell training at the gym, I can create that type of program. If a gym isn’t accessible because they are a stay at home mom and they need to be able to have a workout they can do anywhere, Our body is a great resistance tool to train with! Movement is so versatile! You can make it what you want to fit into YOUR life! 🤸‍♂️🚴‍♀️🏋️‍♂️⛷🏄‍♂️🏌️‍♂️🧘🏻‍♀️ So if you ask me what my style of training is, I will probably answer that with a question. What is your favorite style of movement? What are your goals? 🤔 Message me to set up a consultation! ✅ PC 📸: @wes.foto

Financial freedom, job security, confidence, JOY! • When I think of this business, those words come to mind... they form my ‘WHY’. • I want to live with financial freedom.

If you want something to be great you have to put in the work. It doesn’t really matter what you’re talking about, health, fitness, relationships, your job - anything-If you want the best results you need to put the work in. My yard needs some work, but I’m willing to go out there and seed, water, mow, rake...whatever it takes. It doesn’t matter how bad it is, it can be fixed if you’re willing to do the work. It’s not going to be easy, sometimes you’re going to want to quit. It’s going to feel like you’re putting in the work everyday but not seeing any results. I promise you, as long as you don’t quit, as long as you show up everyday to nourish it will keep getting a little better. If you want it bad enough, don’t make excuses about why you don’t have it, put in the work and go . . . . . . #dothework #yearofnofear #yardwork #mowing #fitness #relationships #healthandhappiness #dontquit #putinthework #noexcuses #hardestworkerintheroom #priorities #bettertogether #ifyouwantitgogetit #itsalifestyle #sunburn #legsday #pushmower #healthy #entrepreneur #foodisfuel

Happy Monday, light beams! I honestly haven't felt like posting recently, and with my schedule growing increasingly busier, ME time is my top priority. If I'm quiet, I'm busy, and that's exactly how I need it to be to thrive. . Speaking of thriving, there are some pretty exciting things happening for me at the moment! I've been super focused on growing my business, expanding my reach locally, and keeping my mind growing in the right ways. It's paying off HARD. I can feel myself and my life leveling up to the next stage, and while I am terrified of the changes, I am *equally* excited for this new life to fully blossom! And don't forget- my only resolution this year is to not let my fear or anxiety hold me back from progressing. I'm sticking to my guns with that, no matter what! #yearofnofear . I truly feels like everything I've been working for is starting to fall into place. Grateful every damn day for the life I choose to lead. In the meantime, keeping my vibe high, my focus sharp, and mind right. Also, glutes plumped🤣💥 . Have a glorious Monday, humans💕

If you’re easily offend and don’t like hearing the truth keep scrolling, this might sting a little... This weekend I want you to do something for yourself. Not sure what to do? My recommendation —-> QUIT MAKING EXCUSES AND TAKE ACTION. “I don’t have time, I’m too old, I don’t have the money, I don’t have the equipment, I’m injured, eating healthy is gross, I’ll start next week” or my personal favorite “I’m not in good enough shape to get healthy” ....blah blah blah. Seriously how many times has “next week” came and gone but you had another excuse not to get started? I have bad news for you, there is always going to be something else, so if you don’t make your health a priority YOU’RE NOT GOING TO GET HEALTHIER! Quit making excuses and do something for yourself. Join a team that is going to help you get beyond all of the excuses and keep you motivated. We have made it as easy as possible for you this month with 3 options Check them out in the comments below👇🏽

Today I’m grateful for these magic pants 🙌🏼 • My nutrition has been way off point, I’m feeling a little ‘fluffy’ and it’s already like summer here in Georgia, so... ICE CREAM! Do I feel guilty? No, not at all - life’s too short for that nonsense, plus I know my leggings always have my back! • Our Light n Tights are little life savers. These bad boys tuck you in, hold ya up, smooth it all out & won’t let people know what color your underwear is 🙌🏼 Plus, they give you ALL the confidence... even on your ‘fluffy’ feeling days. • Honestly, these dang things deserve an award!

Nutrition has always been my weak point. Since becoming a coach I’ve always been able to eat pretty clean when I wanted to, but I have never really went deep into our nutrition plans. Well, it was time for that to change. With an increasing number of people unable to workout for various reasons I wanted a way to help them take control of their health. I saw that opportunity with a brand new nutrition program launching in our company. I decided to invest in myself to better serve you and became certified in this new program. I’m happy to say my certification is complete and I am ready to help you with an easy to follow, sustainable nutrition plan based on what your body needs. Are you ready to join us? Our first nutrition group start Monday May 6th so there’s still a few days left to join!

April is nearly gone and I have another fear to face, but this one is a little more complex than the others... I've been reading Girl, Stop Apologizing and finding myself shouting "Yessss!" or coming to tears because every word speaks true to me. The overarching message is so gripping: "Stop denying your true self to fit a mold that's not right for you, stop putting your dreams aside to make others happy or because you expect to fail, and stop limiting yourself by thinking you need permission or approval to be who you were meant to be and do what brings you joy. It's easy to say and easier to hear, but actually doing it is different. I think my biggest fear might be Believing in myself and I need to do something about it. I've gotten to know me so much better in the last few years and I'm realizing that I have purpose left unpursued. I've been dreaming of taking a professional plunge for ages and I've decided the time has finally arrived. I'm ready to embrace what I'm best at and make it into a reality. There is doubt clinging to me in every idea and I'm scraping my confidence up off the floor, but that's the point. So I'm going to choke back my pessimism and get started, finally. This will be a journey and I'm so relieved I'll be making it with someone who believes in me more than I ever have... #yearofnofear

Last night, I had the incredible HONOR of presenting my talk, “Double Consciousness, Gender, and Mental Disability” to UW Medicine Professor Edwin Lindo’s “Critical Race Theory and Medicine” class! During the presentation, I used W.E.B. DuBois’ Theory Of Double Consciousness to illustrate to the class full of future doctors, lawyers, and public health practitioners THREE theories I identified as barriers to Black Women either seeking or maintaining treatment for their mental health concerns. We also recorded a podcast, before class! The video is rendering, as we speak. Once it’s ready, I’ll upload it. Until then, here’s a couple of pics. Once again, a very special thanks to Edwin for creating a space for equity in healthcare, and other public spaces! #PowerOfStorytelling #YearOfNOFear #WritersAreWarriors

***WANTED*** LEADERS INFLUENCERS BUSINESS BUILDERS ENTREPRENEURS I always post about my workouts and my love for helping people reach their health & fitness goals but I definitely don’t I post often enough about the other part of my coaching business which is helping people build their own businesses. Full Time, Part Time, maybe just a side hustle to make a few extra bucks a month to help for gas or groceries. Let’s talk about that part for a minute... Questions I get asked ALL THE TIME Q “Do I need to be a fitness professional?” A- Nope, not at all! No certifications or experience required. Q. “Do I need to be in great shape and have a six pack?” A. Hell no! Have you seen my abs? No? Me neither!😂😂😂, I love beer🍺 & pizza🍕! There is a place for people who are super fit in this business, but it’s definitely not required. It is almost easier for the people to relate to you when you’re going through the same types of struggles they are going through. Q. “Do I have to bring people to my house to workout?” A. Nope! We help busy people with fitness and nutrition programs that fit their home lives and schedule. Q. “How much money will I make?” A. Just like with any business what you get out of out will be based on what you put into it. This is work, you can’t just sit back and wait for the cash to flow in. Which leads into what is ALWAYS my favorite question... 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 Q. “IS THIS A PYRAMID SCHEME” A. NO IT IS NOT. A pyramid is an ILLEGAL business model thats offers payment through recruiting other people, never offering goods or services. If you think helping people with the best fitness programs, supplements, support and accountability is any kind of scheme...keep scrolling this isn’t for you. 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼 I AM A BEACHBODY COACH. I AM A NETWOR MARKETER # AND I’M PROUD OF IT! (Continued in Comments)

IT'S OFFICIAL!!! On April 16 at 5:30, yours, truly will be speaking to UW Medicine Professor Edwin Lindo's Critical Race Theory and Medicine (FAMED 550) class!! The course uses Critical Race Theory and other Critical Studies frameworks to help understand the ways Race and Racism affect medical treatment in marginalized communities. Specifically, I will be speaking on Blackness, Disability, and Gender ― a subject I know VERY well, as a Black Woman living with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which is (for those who don't know) a trauma-based mental disability. I can't talk about the problems, if I'm not willing to be part of the solution. This is me, being part of the solution. A VERY special thanks to Professor Lindo for extending this invitation. #race #course #talk #understand #problems #special #trauma #racism #stereotype #narrative #yearofnofear

Today as I was running these kids set off firecrackers on the side of the road right near me. I had the same fear and immediate reaction of wanting to throw up, cry, scream, and run away as fast as I could. The PTSD from April 15, 2013 is still real and there even when I think I have beaten it for good. I can’t handle loud noises and I definitely could not handle those damn firecrackers today. But, I told myself to get my last 3 in before this marathon Sunday and you know what? I got those 3 done. Some scars are silent. And I still won’t be stopped. #yearOfNoFear

Winning this award for my writing has a MUCH deeper meaning than just placing in the top three: For starters, I came THISclose to not even entering, because I was feeling insecure about my writing ― specifically, I was concerned that telling the truth about the ways my race and my gender complicates my disability would turn the judges off, and make them turn a blind eye to my truth. Then I realized that in my #YearOfNOFear, that the worst thing that could possibly happen would be if I did NOTHING. My experiences so far this year have taught me that I'm actually doing a greater disservice by sitting on my story than I ever could by sharing it. As it turns out, my story is far more universal than what I originally believed. AND...the more I share, the less fear and shame I feel over having a trauma-based disability that has changed EVERYTHING about my life. So, while this ribbon may say "3rd Place," when I factor in everything I've endured, just to get to this point, I'm FIRST PLACE, all the way! Special shout out to @jolyngc for sharing the info!

March has been an insanely busy month and I needed to slow down and spend some time on self care. Of course this pampering session needed an element of fearlessness, so I was determined to take the plunge and try a haircut I've been contemplating for quite a while. I'm no stranger to changing up my hair, but this was completely new: a stacked, long pixie. I've gotten comfortable with my style and the idea of shaking things up and experimenting with my appearance, of all things, made me nervous, so I knew I had to do it. It's not been quite this short since I was a kid and I don't know how to style it yet, so it's a challenge for me. It might seem trivial to some, but it had me glaring into the mirror and saying, Let's see how it turns out, which was actually very liberating. And I absolutely love it! I'm finding the older I get, the less I'm afraid of looking ridiculous or even the risk of it. That's probably something I can manage only because I'm more secure than I've ever been, thanks to my incredible husband - who I make fun of a lot but couldn't possibly live without... Goal: Dive headfirst into a new look and embrace it, even before I see the end result. Achieved. #yearofnofear

Mindset Monday 🙌 • This morning I felt well rested and ready to take on the day, took my time a little too much this morning and made it to the gym later than I planned with only about 30 ish minutes to get a workout in. A part of me wanted to say “well I don’t have enough time for my entire workout so I’ll do it later 🤷‍♀️” but instead I said (self talk is super important folks!) “Sam, you can get a lot done in 30 min, skip the rest breaks and get it done.” Did I get everything done that I had planned? No. But did I move my body and overcome a thought process that had been limiting me? HELL YES! • This is a huge piece of the puzzle 🧩that is a fitness journey. You are changing your lifestyle and the best method of attack is usually taking the long,scenic route of figuring out your mindset and how it is either lighting a fire 🔥under your ass or hindering you from reaching your goals 💪 • How is your mindset limiting you OR How have you been able to change your mindset to benefit your GOALS! 🤷‍♀️ I would love to hear all about it, drop a note down below or DM me!

#randomthoughts It was this time last year that i literally “lost it.” Thinking back on it, all I can do is thank God for being a keeper. While I was in the midst of the darkest time of my life, one day as I was leaving for work, I zoned out... The only thing that made me “snap out of it” was the sound of my car as it crashed into my garage door. I broke down in tears because i just didn’t have the energy anymore. I was in that “in between” stage of not wanting to live but not wanting to die either. #depressionkills A year later, I’m working on smiling more. I’m working on getting out of the house more. Most of all, I’m working on putting things in God’s hands. #grateful #depressionisreal #findingstrength #onedayatatime #smile #laugh #pray #2019 #yearofnofear #nomorepeoplepleasing

So lucky I have a friend who is an amazing artist @wallafanni. Last year, I decided to fear less and take more action. Busking in Málaga, Spain, was one of the things I did and I loved it!⁣ Take time to do what makes your soul happy ✨☀️💛 ⁣ ⁣ #yearofnofear #2018 #fearless #courage #malaga #busker #busking #friends #band #wienslief #singers #harmonies #musicians #lifestyle #sustainablelifestyle #mindfulmoments #feminine #manifestation #dreambig #manifestationbabe #iamwellandgood #createalifeyoulove #shineyourlight #happinessisachoice #calledtocreate

This is me. Without trying to be anything I’m not. Avoiding the perfect pose, not sucking in and not taking a million repeats because I didn’t hide my ‘something’ well enough. I want you to know that we as humans are meant to be different. And in this difference we can find beauty, if we choose to that is. Something you may not know from just looking at me is that I have a connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. (EDS for short). Basically what that means is that my body’s 1st line of defense (ligaments, tendons and any other CONNECTIVE tissue) isn’t quite constructed in the strongest fashion. What does CONNECTIVE tissue do in our bodies you ask? 🔗IT CONNECTS STUFF! 🔗 Literally any piece of tissue you have in your body is made of connective tissue, OR connected with connective tissue. In my body this presents with a few different ‘symptoms’ or as I like to call them, reminders. Because my connective tissue is not doing what it should, the biggest reminder of my EDS is my hypermobility. What is hypermobility you may ask? Well lets break it down; Hyper (Latin prefix) means over, in excess or ‘extra’, Mobility; referring to joint movement throughout the range available. So basically; I have extra motion/movement available in my joints; I am more ‘flexible’, or as some friends call me, ‘Gumby’. I have received many comments such as “Oh you’re so flexible!”, or “You must be so good at Yoga!” in relation to hearing about me being hypermobile. For me, my training and exercise programming is very different than I would create for one of my clients. (Unless of course, my client is also Hypermobile.) I focus much more on endurance and stability in my own workouts via more compound motions. In your joint, when you move, your ligaments/connective tissue senses a stretch or movement and then your brain receives a signal from that joint to say what position it is in; this is a basic definition of Proprioception. For instance, if you place your arm out to the side and close your eyes, and place your arm out in front, you are still aware of the position despite not being able to see it.

Today I found out that I made the top ten at @cheesemonger_invitational a few weeks back, and that I’ll be taking a cheese trip to Wisconsin later this year. So, naturally, I made a mini cheese plate to celebrate. The pimiento cheese is the star, as it should be. #vscocam #vsco #cheese #eats #cmisf2019 #lifeisgood #loveyourdamnself #yearofnofear #twentyfineteen

I’ve never really liked reading. I think PD is important, but I’m an audible guy. It’s just easier and fits my schedule better. When I found out Josh Spencer, who I have a ton of respect for, was writing a book knew I needed to read this one. Even if it was available on audible, I wanted to read it. Luckily I have the best accountability partner in the world, Heather Dunne (who also isn’t the biggest fan of reading). We decided to read a book at the same time holding each other accountable to read it. She picked Just Suck It Up, probably because she knew how badly I wanted read it. It didn’t take either of us long to know we were going to love this book! He writes with a no bullshit, straight forward attitude just like it should be. I haven’t finish the book yet but if your struggling with your health, finances, relationships or just getting in the right mindset to succeed you need this book! If you don’t think you’re struggling read this book, it’s going to make you a better person. If you struggle to read, find someone with similar goals and read it together, you won’t be disappointed. . . . . #personaldevelopement #readthisbook #accountability #yearofnofear #bettertogether #healthandhappiness #books #goals #readthisbook #mindset #entrepreneur

I couldn’t be more proud of myself! Today was the first time I’ve worked out in 3 months! If you’ve been following me, you know that I had arthroscopic hip surgery on 1/10/19 and been in recovery ever since. My physical therapy has helped strengthen my hip and the muscles I didn’t use for the 3 weeks I was laid up, and so much so that I was approved to do modified workouts!! I can’t even describe the feelings I have flowing through my veins right now! —> power —> strength —> confidence —> blessed —> happiness —> courage I’ll be honest with you, even though I was so excited to start back today, I was super nervous about filming myself for all of you to see! 🤦🏽‍♀️ My bestie reminded me that this is for ME and I have nothing to prove to anyone. Yes, I’m going to be a lot slower than normal. I’m going to have to modify. I’m going to be out of breathe fairly quickly. However, as soon as I pressed play and finished the first minute long move, THAT SPARK ⚡️ <— the one I always get from this program and any really good workout!! It felt amazing!! The move I included a video of is bear crawls, one of the most challenging moves in this program, one I definitely didn’t expect to be able to do, BUT I DID IT!! 🙌🏽 SHOP RULE —> TRY BEFORE YOU MODIFY If you have doubts in your abilities, at least TRY before you give up or modify, because you never really know what you’re capable of! #changetheworld #smile #beyourself #yearofnofear #bestlife #loveyourself #bossbabe #joinme #bettertogether #blessed #dowhatmakesyouhappy #coachlife #healthandhappiness #truth #ichoosehealth #dogmom #faithful #maketheshift # #changeisgood #PerfectlyImperfectFitness #TU #liveitup #nevergiveup #besties #try #modifying #courage #confidence #believe

Whatever it is that’s distracting you, stay strong and keep pushing, IT WILL GET BETTER.... I love my workouts. I need my workouts. Sometimes the hardest part of a workout is staying focused and just pressing play. The last year I have had so many life distractions and ups and downs in the gym and in life, more than I even thought possible. When I’m struggling, I turn up the music to drown out the distractions of life, and I make every movement in my gym intensional. What keeps you focused from life’s problems and able to keep pushing towards your goals? . . . . #teamintensional #healthandhappiness #yearofnofear #ichoosehealth #focus #stayfocused #ichoosehappiness #homegym #ilift #bettertogether #happy #motivation #staystrong #beintensional #lifehappens

Happy Friday mi amigos! This year @amanda.kay.fit and I pledged to each other to have 2019 be the year of no fear. But honestly this little blurb that I saw on my IG feed the other day speaks volumes. Because sometimes fear is unavoidable and you have got to do it anyway. This is what humans are amazing at. Their ability to adapt. To continue despite difficulties. Despite everything that makes life hard and scary we keep going. Resiliency is built in this space of fear, discomfort and being unsure of the future. We will get stronger by pushing through that fear of “what if.” Don’t let fear hold you back from doing what you love. Grit your teeth and get it done. Where is fear hindering you from reaching your goals? What are you afraid of? What’s the worst that could happen?

There is a span of time where you won’t find many pictures of me because I hated the way I looked. I finally had enough in September 2016. I was sick of feeling uncomfortable in my own skin and I was mad at myself for letting it get out of control. I made a decision to try at-home workouts with a nutrition plan and a nutrient dense shake. I was worried about how much it cost, to be completely honest. A shake? Gross. Nutrition? So overwhelming. But I figured if I was going to spend that kind of money on my health I damn sure better stick to it. And guess what? It worked. Now what are you waiting for? Are you looking for a community to support your health goals? Join our March sneak peak and see what the hype is all about✨
