Trainer Spotlight for Gym Source - August 2017

Hi guys,

I'm so thrilled and honored to be featured in Gym Source's Trainer Spotlight.  I enjoyed the interview process because it gave me an opportunity to put into words how I view fitness, what my training philosophy is and why I do what I do.

You can read the full article here.  But in a nutshell, I want you to know that fitness is a journey.  You will have successes and you will have setbacks, but the most important thing is to keep moving forward.

Personally, my setback was when I was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis back in January of this year.  I used the injury to educate myself more about it and to find a way back to health in a safe manner. In the process, I learned more about the human body and about myself.  We are strong and resilient.  Our bodies are such amazing, healing machines!

Also, successes and setbacks are what life is about... it's how we deal with them that builds our character. Just remember, nothing is permanent... not the good... not the bad... really, nothing.  Everything fluctuates... and that goes for your weight, too.

Speaking of weight, I will write on this on my next blog post because as consistent as I am, my weight fluctuates... and that's normal! Right now, I'm at a higher body fat percentage but I am okay with it because I know that that can change once I put a plan into action.  Honestly, I'm not in a mindset to do that right now so I'm holding steady with my workouts and eating as clean as I can (I really suck at the latter).

Check out the article! And if you are looking for gym equipment or trying to set up your own home gym, I can help!  I know people. Hahaha. Gym Source has been my go-to for 9 years now.  Their service is top notch and they carry the best products.

Well, until next time,

Essie
