It doesn’t happen often around here, but a good post from the heart without jokes or puns is warranted every now and again... . We are SO proud of this girl. . Jen has been cycling competitively for only three years as she had to find a new sport after a running injury. What started as taking spin classes to stay fit turned into a passion for road biking and an unquenchable thirst to be better, stronger, and to always challenge her limits. . The financial support that came surging in tonight was amazing, and it helps so much. But, when the competition is over and the funds have been put to good use, we are left with something worth so much more than money. . What we saw tonight was a group of loving, kind-hearted people that didn’t care what gym they called their home base. What mattered in that moment was that they all shared a common bond ...and her name is Jen Bell. . This girl runs around the city from the crack of dawn to the dark of night training and instructing a group of lucky, grateful people. Somehow, she still finds the time to train and humbly become a National Champion. And, she manages to do it all with a big, contagious smile on her face. . When asked what keeps her going, Jen replied: “On days I find it hard to find the motivation to train, I find inspiration by wonderful friends, family/clients who surround me. They may call me the inspiration but I believe I must be a product of my environment.” . If you didn’t get a chance to dunk Jen but would still like to help support her trip to the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in Poland, we will be accepting donations on her behalf until 8pm tomorrow. . Jen, good luck next week - you have a whole community behind you. This is the part where I would normally say ‘make us proud’ ...but you already have. ❤️ . . . . #forthosewhoknowbetter#pushfitness#weareallfamily #ucigranfondoworldchampionships #cycling#canadianathletes#findyourpassion
The name octopus is derived from the Ancient Greek for eight feet. It used to be believed that the tentacles were deployed in two equal sets, one set of four for propulsion and the other for manipulation. However, it has been found that octopuses have six arms and two legs as the rearmost two are used to get around over rocks and the seabed while the other 6 limbs are used for eating and maneuvering. If you didn’t know, now you know. 🤓🧜🏼♀️ #5oceans7seas#findyourpassion#liveyourbestlife#oceanconservation#scuba#travel#brave
What a change in Melia!😍 I completely relate to being tired, grumpy, using food for comfort, and not caring about myself at all. 😥 I love her transformation and the focus of this program is LIFELONG transformation. 🙌 Her words👇👇👇 "The physical differences are easy to see in pictures but I’m convinced the differences you can’t see on the outside might be even more important. I didn’t go on a diet.. did I change my diet.. absolutely but that was only one piece of the puzzle 🧩 The girl on the left—- 😴 tired.. all the time.. even with all the sleep in the world 😒 blah! Negative attitude, grumpy, frustrated 🧁used food for comfort 💔had thrown self care and self love out the window.. never made time for myself, wore men’s T-shirt’s and leggings almost daily with a ponytail and usually no makeup The girl on the right—- 🏃♀️has energy for days 😁has a positive attitude and a new outlook on life ♥️ practices self care daily and enjoys getting ready (and shopping 🛍) This picture represents 88 pounds gone! It represents a new me and only more amazing things to come 💜
According to Kanye West, not smiling makes him happy.⠀ ⠀ 😏😒🤷🏽♀️⠀ ⠀ There's a much deeper caption for this, but I feel like this sums it up so well!⠀ ⠀ What makes you happy isn't always best. Move toward what makes you BETTER!!!

• it’s the weight of the wings on our backs when closed and not in flight that makes life seem heavy. open and in use, all you feel is elevation ~ ___ everyone gets granted many sets of wings as they move through this life. some get revoked as we exploit their power or neglect it all together. others take longer to come in, waiting on the root to be able to properly hold them in place. ___ wings are earned. they are a sign of growth. of internal progress. they grow to help us love. they grow to help us succeed in our purpose. they grow to show us flight is possible even for those most afraid of coming off the ground. ___ don’t plant your feet too heavily in what you’ve come to know; your new wings will soon be coming in to show you a world of difference ~ ___ @gloriyanedler
Helping others fills my cup ✨ . . . “I’m down a pants size.” “I’m feeling the best I ever have.” “I am so thankful for you.” “You changed my life.” . . . These are just a few of the things I have heard while being a health & fitness influencer. Do you know how good that feels? Knowing that I have had an impact in these people’s lives changes MY life. To me, inspiring just one person is a win. . . . It’s crazy how spreading positivity can make your life more positive. My advice to you: find a way to make other people feel good about themselves. Be kind. Share your passion. Find your tribe. Do whatever it takes to live your best life babe. You deserve it 🤟🏻 . . . #findyourpassion
Heading into year number 6️⃣ in the stands! 🏈🏟️ 💫 The rain 💫 The snow 💫 The playoffs 💫 The snack handoff at halftime (I'm a good wife 💁) 💫 The hours of time spent on films, practice, and meetings Some days (ok, most days if I'm being honest 🤫) it drove me absolutely 🍌🍌🍌and like why is football "season" literally 3 seasons long 🤦🤷♀️ But then two years ago I found my "thing", my community, my extra source of income and 💡(#lightbulbmoment) To him it didn't seem extra or even like work because he loves it, he's passionate about it, and he enjoys seeing the boys succeed and utilize the tools he's given them. That's exactly how I feel aboutmy own coaching gig. It makes my ♥️ full. I love seeing the scale and non scale victories my clients have when they utilize my online tool kit. 🏋️♀️🥗 I love helping people understand that you can have your 🍰 and eat it too! Because life is NOT about deprivation and HEALTHY doesn't have to mean exclusion. I'm passionate about showing other women that they can gain confidence and go after their DREAMS 💃 To me the team calls, the pockets of work, and the running of my groups isn't work... IT'S FUN and getting the extra 💰 is a perk (but not one I'll complain about 😉🙃) If you're still searching for you "thing" let's 👭 I'd love to share more about what I do and why I love doing it 🥰 #fridaynightlights#footballcoachwife#letsconnect#findyourpassion#slideintomydms
