powercakes My girls crushing it on a Monday night ๐Ÿผ switching up some hill work today with overhead walking lunges & broad jumps into a half burpee. Having to move up hill adds an extra challenge to these movements for the overhead lunges ๐Ÿผ make sure to keep core tight, arms locked over head with engaged shoulders pushing up, and root through your front heel. For the jumps ๐Ÿผ broad jump with both feet (trying to not "slap" the ground & cushion the landing) right into kicking your feet out behind you and back in to flat feet before jumping again. Get after it! ๐Ÿผ #truetoyoufitness #tennisgirls #tennisathletes #tennistraining #coach #fitfluential @fitfluential #instagramfitness #trainer #mygirls #strength #conditioning @avagracecat @erica.wojcikiewicz 1d

powercakes Because here's the thing ๐Ÿป years ago eating anything quote "unhealthy" would send me into a restrictive downfall. Too long I spent worrying about eating perfectly when in reality, it had nothing to do with food. I was holding expectations & fear of losing control in other situations in my life & sometimes we reach to things, like food or restricting food, to temporarily fill the void. The day I was determined to get to the root of my disordered thinking was the day that I challenged myself to also find a balance with all foods that work for me ๐Ÿผ not everyone can eat like the next person can (maybe it's allergies or what not) BUT I sure am a lot happier with more balance in my life. I love "healthy" food and I also enjoy other types of food as well. Like tonight, enjoying pizza with my family was so easy to do. When years ago - i would've passed - even though I really wanted some. #bodypeace for me is balance with all foods that work for me ๐Ÿผ anddddd @killcliff because it's awesome ๐Ÿป #bodyfuel #enjoy #balance #killcliff #truetoyoueats 2d
  •   lindsaybrookegoldberg I love this. 2d
  •   hoffe5 Amen sistah! 2d
  •   kaylamadeline Yesss! 2d
  •   emmunson What a great message babes!! 2d
  •   katrina_4.15 Yes! My sister and mom today said "oh you're off the wagon?" Nope, allowing myself to enjoy gluten-full pasta and meatballs after running a half marathon is just what u wanted to do! My body wanted it so I ate it and I feel so happy ๏ธ 2d
  •   keeleymack Hitting so close to home, girl. Right now it's hard for me to see others following rigid diets and not feel compelled to do the same. It's not a competition, but my brain is prone to perceive it as such! It's so harmful, and we have to remember to be gentle with ourselves ๏ธ 2d
  •   dietitiandeanna Yes! Just posted about this. Love this girl 2d

powercakes Tried out a new @bosu_fitness move with my tennis kids (@eperel97 & @cj_gladden) ๐Ÿผbosu double jumps ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ start off the bosu, jump onto the bosu and CONTROL that landing by getting LOW, routing the feet into the bosu, and trying to "stick" the landing so the load is taken by the whole lower bodY (not trying to bounce off here ). Knees a bit out, not collapsing in. From that low hold, jump up & then softly land again in a CONTROLLED landing. I can't stress enough about the controlling of this movement. Someone with knee or ankle issues may not want to jump right into this, literally. BUT done correctly and with focus on control, it can be super beneficial for leg strength, ankle strength, core, control, mind/muscle connection, & balance. Also never a dull moment with the commentary these kids. #tennistraining #tennis #tennisathletes #truetoyoufitness #balance #bosu #bosutraining 5d
  •   tiuerin :) I like to do it with the bosu flipped. 5d

powercakes Oh heyyy track, we meet again ๐Ÿผ finished my pull training today (lots of rows & pull ups) with 4 rounds of 800m run + 20 renegade rows after every 800. Definitely taxes the whole body as you're utilizing it while running and full body with renegade rows. With the rows you're In a full plank with hands on Dumbbells. Row one dumbbell at a time as you stay in the plank keeping tight position & trying not to sway side to side - really using that CORE to stabilize ๐Ÿผ definitely a challenging sweat sesh. Happy Thursday!๐Ÿ˜Ž #truetoyoufitness #changeitup #fitfluential #challenge #trackwod #track #conditioning #bodypeace #uawomen #iwillwhatiwant #renegaderows 5d

powercakes Had such an amazing start to the day speaking at my Alma Mater! ๐Ÿผ I was asked to speak about what I've done in my career ever since graduating from the university as far as fitness & entrepreneurship. I shared with the students how I started in Education, graduated with A Bachelor's in Health & PE, started my own business, & became a personal trainer. Now I work with all ages but also get to train athletes. A perfect combo of teaching & training! Exactly where I see myself for a while. Is creating your future easy? No. Is the hard work absolutely worth it? YES! I get to make a difference daily in people's lives (as well as my own) and I wouldn't change it for the world. New things are about to change again as I move to a new state (anyone in Rhode Island looking for a trainer or coach?! ๐Ÿผ) but for real, my moral of my story always came back to being true to yourself & your passion can help determine your future steps. It's always evolving in the fitness industry but if you're in it for the right reasons, you can truly make an IMPACT (as my mentor @todddurkin would say.) so great seeing my Professors who made such a difference in my life & also this cutie, Courtney (@courtbell_) who caught me on my way out to say the most amazing words as in how I've inspired her thank you for making my day! #truetoyoufitness #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #hardwork #dedication #makeadifference #fitfluential @fitfluential #uawomen #iwillwhatiwant 5d
  •   courtbell_ @powercakes words can even describe how excited and honored I am to finally get to meet the one person who has and keeps inspiring me in everything that I do! thank YOU for helping me become the person that I am today!! Your passion and determination shines from within and you change lives. You really do. Never stop being the beautiful person God made you! You are a blessing! ๏ธ 5d

powercakes On the blog today single serve chocolate chia cake with a new favorite of mine French vanilla @elliquark! quark is a spoonable FRESH CHEESE with a creamy texture similar to Greek yogurt, but with a richer, less sour taste. It also is HIGH PROTEIN with no added sugars or artificial sweeteners. So good! & topped with strawberries check it at [powercakes.net] #fuelyourbody #enjoy #chocolate #fitfluential #bodypeace #elliquark #quark 6d

powercakes My girlsssss @avagracecat & @erica.wojcikiewicz yet again crushing today's training with some pass through V-UPS! ๐Ÿผ I was inspired by the lovely & super strong ladies from @theprettylittlelifters whose Instagram I check out daily this can also be done with a PVC pipe but since we didn't have any available, we went with resistance bands that we wrapped around our hands. Make sure with this movement you stay tight the whole time as it's very easy to let your low back round & lose the form. You can also tuck your chin to lessen neck pain. Get after it! ๐Ÿผ #thatformthough #truetoyoufitness #fitfluential #tennisgirls #tennistraining #tennis @fitfluential #iwillwhatiwant #instagramfitness 1w
