EXAM results & Sacrifices.

Thank you fellow bloggers for being patient, I have some news.. 

I took my exam Friday December 1st and got a HIGH score but I did not pass. I failed. 

With all of that being said, I will hopefully be retaking the exam sometime in February ( the ACSM exam is changing so I have to order the new textbooks, etc) While I was so upset and shattered that I missed two days at the gym and ate like crap >.< I have had so much support and love and encouragement from friends and peers. It was a tough exam, a very tough exam to be honest and I don’t know if the new one will be just as tough or easier. In the meantime I will be taking a long break from my YouTube channel, besides this Wednesday and next Wednesday because I have to make some sacrifices so I can focus on restudying and hopefully passing this time around. 

I will continue to blog each week and I will do my best to continue to keep up with the podcast as well (haven’t been doing that as often) and I will continue to be present on my social media (IG, Twitter, Facebook, etc) but I am walking away from YouTube for a little while longer so I can pass and of course there will be other sacrifices. My blogging might not be daily or as many post, because of studying and having two jobs, etc, but I will have a post or two AT THE VERY LEAST each week – unless an emergency occurs. 

I appreciate all of you for being so kind and patient with me and wishing me the best of luck! I know I am capable of passing and doing great things! 

Also, my boss at the gym is still keeping me around as a trainer, so that is a positive .. 😀

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
