Deliberate & Consistent – Become an overnight success

There is something to be said for consistency, just showing up and most importantly believing in yourself. Today is the start of the transformation challenge for about 260 of my bootcamp and online clients. This, just like New Year’s gives so many people false hope that change is on the way. Do I say that because I believe change is not possible? Not at all, come on, I’m the eternal optimist! I say this because so many people expect change[…]

Do you fear CHANGE? (overcoming the SUCK)

Do you embrace CHANGE? Sometimes you have to embrace the SUCK and know that what lies ahead is bigger, better and stronger!! But that’s not always easy to see in the beginning. In fact, as humans when something of comfort in our life changes, it instantly causes most people anxiety. (ex. work schedule, new co-workers, faced with a deadline, new gym routine, parenting) Why?

Kirsten’s Bikini Transformation

Though you are forewarned when competing that there’s going to be more than just one challenge between diet, prep and the mental drain that you go through to get where you want to be and still ending with “Coulda Shoulda Woulda”. I definitely had my fair share of “Coulda Shoulda Woulda”. Though I truly believe Peak Week (the week before stepping on stage) was by far the worst weak leading up to my first competition.

My POWERFUL Morning Routine (step-by-step)
