One of our key focuses for the Maximize Your Motivation for March program is commitment.


"Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you" -Psalm 37:5

God is not promising things will always be easy, in fact it is the tree which weathers the most storms that often grows to be the strongest! We must trust that we can handle the challenges he sets before us, and commit to seeing our goals through.

This week let's commit to strengthening our core by working on our abdominal muscles. Set aside 10 minutes every day to get in a great workout that will help lay the foundation for future exercises. Watch the video below for one of my favorite ab routines (with my favorite assistant)!

Maximize Your Motivation in March!

February is coming to a close and I am so proud of all the hard work & dedication I've seen this month! I love hearing from all my friends on how their training and nutrition programs are going. You haven't let cold weather slow you down and you've stayed committed to your goals!

This month, I've especially loved the opportunity to reach out to more people than I ever thought possible. Last week I was able to speak to a group of young women about proper nutrition, exercise, and faith.


We did a quick body weight workout, then focused on the power of positive thinking and with help from God's strength we can acheive our life goals.


We discussed how college can be a difficult time for a lot of women since there is such pressure to fit in, get a high GPA, and have a great figure while doing it. Even when college is finished, life's challenges continue. God has a plan for us all though, and we must have the strength to follow it.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11
