Athleticism and physique mean two different things. I can't tell you how many times I've entered any kind of workout class or even the gym and been COMPLETELY ANNIHILATED by someone who may not have "looked" more athletic than I was. On that same token I can't tell you how many times I've been underestimated for being a petite, little blonde person and done well. The thing about determination, mental toughness and ambition is THEY DON'T COME WITH A SIZE, SHAPE, HAIR COLOR, GENDER or any other "LOOK." No one and I mean NO one knows what you're capable of but you. Any real "athlete" I think would agree on this, "don't ever underestimate your opponent." _______________________________________
I think the best thing about @1stPhorm is that they're underestimating no one. The company is so driven to inclusiveness and building the next man up so that we all can achieve it's incredible. Yesterday I met people who overcame physical ailments, I met pregnant women and busy mothers who are kicking ass at the gym. I even met people like @loejawson who had already lost over 100 pounds and is still killing it! 👊🏼 _________________________________
After being here just this short weekend it's clear to me this brand is beyond great products, but it's really a movement of people who build each other up so we all #NeverSettle

I read this quote recently that said "don't let the internet rush you" and it got me thinking. Living in the age of the internet, our lives have been redesigned in many ways and not always for the best. Lately I feel like the internet, or social media specifically, can be really demanding. With the absence of posting what you're doing/working on/ who you're dating etc. people just assume things about you. I think that's a little f#cked personally. •
Some people are really comfortable and talented with posting their lives often and that's great. Some people may be too busy or find it insincere to post every waking move... 🙋🏼 •
What I'm getting at is the internet isn't validation. I don't post every job I take, every workout I do or every single plane ride I take. But that doesn't mean I'm not making those moves. I've always felt success is silent. •
With fitness, these all apply. You don't have to document every pound you lose or every goal you achieve (unless you want to of course :) ) But don't let the social media demands measure your success. You don't owe the internet your resume. Success speaks for itself 👊🏼✨
Is anyone else out there a fan of astrology?... well if you are, you've heard about Tauruses. Driven, honest.... but most memorably STUBBORN. I'm as Taurus and as stubborn as it gets ♉️😤 I don't like change and I have a tendency to do things the harder way. Since joining @1stphorm, my nutrition hasn't been one of them. The M-Factor supplement contains essential vitamins and minerals in the perfect ratios to keep my body at its best. I also loooove that they've designed different M-Factors for women and men to keep optimal results for both genders 🤴🏻👸🏼👊🏼 Don't be stubborn like a Taurus, give your body what it deserves :) #1stphorm
Fun fact about me: I have 5 sisters and 3 brothers. 😮 Growing up in a busy family meant a lot of independence for me. My parents didn't really have time to hold my hand with a lot of things, which meant if I wanted something, I made it happen. If I wanted to go to college I had to get a scholarship, if I wanted an apartment I had to get a job and if I wanted to make any dream come true, I had to motivate myself. This self-sufficiency led me to check off a lot on my bucket list past 18. I became a published model, a certified yoga instructor, obtained a history degree and even danced for a professional sports team. Once I decided to move to LA, like my other plans, no one thought it was a good idea. But... I worked 3 jobs, saved a bunch of money and drove 27 hours to Hollywood with Tosh in tow. 👱🏼♀️🐶 🌴
The point of this story, is, sometimes we have to be our own cheerleader. It's frustrating when no one believes in you or thinks your dreams are insane... but to be honest, that means you're dreaming right.
Whether you'd like to lose twenty pounds, enter a fitness competition or just discover new found confidence in yourself @1stphorm is here to help. Put yourself first, put in some work and don't be ashamed to be your biggest f*cking fan 😎
Starting my week right with a Monday workout and my @1stphorm BCAAs.
Super excited the 1st Phorm Summer smash that's just a few weeks away and a few weeks after that I adventure to Europe ✊🏼 Working out while traveling is tough for me, so I'm really focused on keeping my workouts frequent so I can be ready for all the adventures! 👙
I love adding #1stphorm supplements to my routine- like their bcaas in green apple. Keeps my recovery short, muscles building so I can workout more often. Plus it tastes amazeballs 🍏
Happy Monday everyone!
