Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

  1. That was such an amazing video! You have no idea how much I needed that. I was having a pretty tough week and that was actually really helpful. So I can be kind of a push over sometimes and I have been trying to work on doing things for myself instead of others. I guess we’re just always taught that doing things for yourself is selfish but I don’t think that’s always true and I think you need to learn to prioritize yourself sometimes for your own sanity. Anyway I think the motivational Mondays is a great idea and even if you’re just saying something unplanned, off the top of your head I’m sure it will still make a difference in peoples lives.
    Also I think you should totally link your blog and other pages in the description below because that will probably help people find them more easily 🙂

    1. Hey! I am happy it did something for you, small or big. I appreciate your support and listening to my video! I am probably a push over as well sometimes, I never been one to put my foot down, but like you, I have decided that I need to learn to do things for myself and my own agenda, because in the end, if I don’t, I am risking my own happiness and future. Helping people is clearly the righteous thing to do, but in the end I can’t save everyone and I can’t change everyone. I can only work on myself in hopes others will see the good. We focus our attentions on wanting to change people and yet we waste so much time doing so because people don’t want to change unless they benefit from it. People work so hard in wanting to change how people think, what they wear, how they look, and end up wasting so much time because they neglect themselves in the process. When someone neglects their wants and needs, it doesn’t normally end well. Every once in a great while you have to work on yourself in order to see change in others.

      1. Yes exactly we need to look at ourselves first before we can try to change others. And we need to understand that there are people out there who will never change and that rather than wasting our time trying to change the world maybe we should try to better ourselves first and then work on others. I know a lot of people have a hard time working on themselves but I think everyone should take some time out for themselves 🙂

      2. YESSS! precisely! this is exactly what I mean. There is nothing wrong with making a difference in the world but everyone has “skeletons in their closets” and some are rather good at hiding them. I would have to say the majority of people who have “changed the world” in a positive way, had to change themselves first in order to make a point. I.e example if Rosa Parks had not sat where she sat, we may never have had the outcome we have now.. she could have said “fuck it.. ill sit in the back again today and endure my life struggle” but instead she changed her attitude and said “hey.. this isn’t right and I want to be able to sit wherever I want on the bus” which this whole act encouraged others to then take stands even if at first they were afraid they later seen a light at the end of the tunnel. Another example, I had to change my mentality and physical being in order to become a personal trainer (a good one).. I couldn’t be sloppy and overweight and expect my client to listen to me and want to change their habits and fitness regimen knowing I have yet to work on myself. My point is, in order to see change, you have to be the change. Not all the time, but in most cases. One cannot expect something out of someone if they aren’t capable of doing it themselves, don’t set expectations of others you cannot meet yourself. 😀 Hope this makes sense.

      3. Wow yes I know exactly what you mean! Maybe you should be the one doing motivational speaking! I definitely agree I think we need to change our life and lifestyle first to change others. Like you said if Rosa Parks hadn’t thought “you know what I’ve had enough of sitting separately on the bus and being treated like this because of my race” she wouldn’t have started the huge movement she did. People who change the world start out small by changing parts of their own life so that eventually they can change the lives of others and I think honestly it would be hypocritical to try to change others when you can’t even change yourself.

      4. I have wanted to speak at public events but I need more work, haha. Maybe one day I will have the chance, it would be fun and nerve wrecking all in one. LOL.

        That makes for two motivational speakers, I am not sure the world is prepared for us yet! LOL

      5. Yeah speaking at events sounds super scary but really fun at the same time and I totally think you should try it out some time!
        Hmmm well the world is never really prepared for greatness… we just need to do our thing and wait for the world to catch up 😜
