Still working out

Sorry, Not Sorry

Even though I haven’t talked about it, I have been about it (last week I took 3 days away) due to health issues with my tummy, otherwise, yes I have been at the gym and working out. As a matter of fact, I have been doing my bulking phase of the season right now, and plan on leaning out hopefully the middle to end of January — with my schedule the past of couple of weeks at the gym, It didn’t give me much time to blog & when I did blog, I was trying to keep up with my self discovery post considering my workouts are only to keep my accountable and to give me something to look back on .. for my own growth. I didn’t realize how long it had been before I posted my last workout,  but it has been awhile, but I didn’t want you guys to think I gave up on the idea of fitness/health, especially since it is my profession and hobby alike. Thanks for being patience, although, you didn’t have any other choice in the matter. LOL

For the sake of time, I will post today’s workout– and try to do a better job with keeping ya’ll up to date with my workouts, progress and regression alike.

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
