The Energy Lab is a judgement-free zone, where caring abounds! What we do is not a job, it is our calling. We shine in the game of caring, because to us, it is not a game, it is simply the result of our passion to change the world! One person at a time. To let someone know that we believe in them to the point that they believe in themselves. Thanks to my mentor and coach, Todd Durkin, for showing to the world what caring looks like in the world of personal training and to NBC Strong for focusing on how STRONG people are capable of being when being strong is their only choice AND when they have someone who believes in them!
Now is the time. “Eyes forward. Here we go.” ~ the words of a very special mentor of mine. The time for action is now, “how bad do you want it?” I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Believe in that small voice inside of you. Listen to the rhythm of your body. Feel its flow and the connections that exist, linking all that is within. Live your energy as only YOU can. Cultivate it. Share it. Set it free. Be contagious with kindness. Be open with love. Be the person you were put on this earth to be.
I am always humbled and in awe of the lives behind the faces. It is a big deal to write your story. I admire all of these people who courageously have shared themselves to remind us how important it is to be kind. We never know what is going on in other people’s lives and to inspire us that we are always capable of so much more than we think!
We are six months into the year and it is a good time to look back and see how far we have come with the goals we set upon beginning the year. Or maybe to consider living more audaciously. Following our dreams and allowing ourselves to “go big”.
20 years in the making. My transformation story… 1995-2015. Most people have 30-day stories, 6-month, and one-year stories. I had a few nudges that let me know it was time to share my story. Looking back at where to begin, it turns out, I have been living my transformation for the last 20 years. It is a journey, a lifetime process to which there is no end. There has never been a quick fix. I am on this journey every day and it is not easy, but it is necessary.
We all have them. Days we wonder why we are here. What our purpose is. What would happen if we just quit. Would anyone notice? Would we be happy? How much struggle is enough? Is your struggle a relationship? a job? a health or body image concern? the loss of someone in your life? reconciling yourself with your passion? Is it simply liking yourself? These things are all real. They sit with us and weigh us down. Sometimes they even make us sick. If you are lucky, you notice it and feel it coming on. You sit with it and observe how it makes you act and react. Just like injuries, some struggles
