Theres missing link to a lot of women getting their first pull-up….

When women come to me they are ONLY using the Assisted Band to help them get their pull-up…

They are ONLY doing a few random Pull-up Drills on the internet…

Instead of…
Working on Mobility
Stability (like the four moves above) 
AND Strength…

This triple threat method I created with @pulluprevolution has helped over 500 + not only conquer their pull-up but become the strongest, most confident bad ass version of themselves…

So want to join the revolution with me ?! 

We are doing our next FREE Online Pull-up Workshop October 8th! Comment or message me the word “Workshop” to join for free
I’m still mind blown that 80% of the population doesn’t get the needed amount of Magnesium from real food. 🤯

I also wanna make it clear that for myself and my clients my goal is always to get everything needed from REAL food! 

Supplements are simply there to help when needed, like in cases like this with Magnesium ! 

The issue is most Magenesium Supplement brands don’t actually give you what you need and don’t really absorb😅…which is why I did a ton of research to find the best one out there and @bioptimizers was it 🥳🙌🏻

I take two of these each night  for the past two years with my evening meal 🥘 and it has been a game-changer in helping my sleep & recovery ! 

#biooptimizers #magenesiumbreakthrough #ad
Happy Monday from me and my flat ass 🍑😂
“You will never regret working on yourself. You will never regret investing in your future. 
You will never regret being resourceful, exercising, meditating. Spend more time doing the things you know you won’t regret.” - @briannawiest 

I have helped hundreds of women conquer their first pull-up with @pulluprevolution and each woman who take a chance on themself and their goal only wish they had started sooner because not only did they achieve the impossible, they also became the strongest most confident version of themself which translated into showing up even better for those around them ❤️

Comment “Workshop” to join the free pull-up Workshop we are having in a few weeks
POV: Your in your Pull-up Queen Era 😏…and nothing can stop you 🙌🏻

So many women message me saying they have always wanted to do just ONE Pull-up …they’ve tried drills they’ve seen online, worked with trainers…but STILL they haven’t seen the progress they were looking for 🤦🏻‍♀️

But then @pulluprevolution entered the chat…and everything changed…not only did they conquer their pull-up they also became the stronger most confident version of themselves….and now they are pull-up queens 👸 🙌🏻

Comment “Workshop” down below 👇🏻 to join the next free pull-up workshop! Not only will you learn how to “actually” conquer your pull-up but this months we have special guest @mollie.eastman (Sleep Expert) and @francheskafit (Mobility Queen) joining to add even MORE value and it’s completely free 

What are you waiting for ?!? 
Shout out to @homebodytrainer Pull-up Queen Team Motivational leader for telling us we needed crowns (stay tuned for our queen collab coming soon )
I’ve worked with hundreds of women online and in person and it’s inevitable that “life” will continue to happen while you’re working on your fitness goals (like your pull-up 😅)

You’ll be pushed in other directions..
You’ll be tempted to give in and give up…
You’ll be influenced to do things everyone else but yourself 

Which is why it’s so important to:

1- Realize that it’s normal 😅…there will always be something 
2-Learn to navigate the unsure times and still show-up for yourself ! Even if it’s not 100%, get rid of that all or nothing mindset 
3-Learn to say no, because YOU are a priority 
4-Don’t beat yourself and stop working on your goal if “life” gets in the way and things aren’t going fully as planned 

This road is not linear BUT I tell ya what, if you keep staying consistent and showing up in some way you WILL reach your goal. 

@pulluprevolution is a do it yourself program YES, but when you join you are a part of my private community. With amazing success coaches @lalitayogaforlife , motivational leaders like @homebodytrainer and myself constantly helping to motivate you, coach you and navigate life 

Anyways, can you relate ?! Are you being pulled distracted by you kids ? Your dog? Work? Life ?! 👇🏻
It’s simple 💁🏻‍♀️ but it’s not easy. 

Focus on ONE thing at a time, instead of trying to do it all at once or trying to find a quick fix…

Work on the simple things ❤️
Ketones? What are they ?! Why are they becoming the newest hype ?! Excited to try them out myself with @hvmn Ketone-IQ and give you my honest review 🥳 

What are your thoughts on them? Have you heard of it before ?
The fundamentals and basics matter 💁🏻‍♀️..

I know you might see me doing some circus type movements on my page BUT the reason I can do that is because I always make sure I am doing the basics ! 

In my @pulluprevolution all my members conquer their pull-ups because we put a lot of focus on mobility and stability drills to keep their bodies strong 💪🏻 and feeling good. And quite honestly most other programs are lacking that ! 

Anyways! Save this and tell me about your goals below 😊


Growth Hurts… “Literally” | The Power of Resilience

To be an American Ninja Warrior, you must be in peak condition both physically and mentally, have the flexibility to change, and be fearless of obstacles. Despite having all of these traits, Angela Gargano experienced the devastating setback of tearing her ACL. For most, this would end their athletic career, but not Angela. She defied the odds by not only making a remarkable physical comeback and returning to future competitions but also through her recovery, dedicating herself to developing her inner strength.

In this keynote, Angela Gargano delves into the transformative power of resilience, demonstrating how she utilized resilience to face adversity head-on. She shares the techniques she employed to cultivate resilience, including allowing herself to sit in the “suck” and feel what she needed to feel, how she shifted her negative mindset into a positive one, how she developed a support system by borrowing the beliefs from others while she struggled mentally, and what mattered in the come-back.
