How amazing are these wood signs?! I spent the evening up in Castleton at an apartment complex creating these magnificent wood signs at an event the complex put on to help build community. So much fun and these ladies and gentlemen were so talented! These are some of my favorite color palettes ever used. Great job everyone and thank you for having me out tonight! #CPBK #woodsigns #artparty #DIY
You have two options to consider when choosing a job...1. comfort, security, mediocrity, or 2. happiness, freedom, creativity? What would you pick? 🤔
I’ve been thinking...jobs are chapters in our career life. The real career is life. And as soon as I let go of the expectation of trying to chase a steady paycheck I felt more secure than ever before. I recognized that money will always come and go and that our career does not define us. ⭐️⭐️⭐️The notion of making our life our career is far more interesting to me.⭐️⭐️⭐️ I want to know what you think! This is a topic I’ve been focused on for some time now, and with opportunities knocking at my door, it’s becoming more and more apparent what suits me best...😊
To the powerful women in my life—how do you feel when people, mostly men, call you intimidating or scary even before meeting you?
I’m caught between feeling flattered for the recognition of my ability (and that I know this person is not worth my time) and frustrated that women are met with opposition when expressing the same kind of grit and know-how a man might display.
I will be the first to admit I can be intense. But being intense doesn’t mean I sacrifice friendliness or empathy, and usually when I speak you’ll hear that friendliness first and foremost. Being intense means I take charge more often, work well under stress, and am confident in my direction.
Calling someone intimidating causes blame on that person for YOUR feelings. Fuck your feelings. Lol just kidding. See, I got a little intense just now, it happens.
If you ever find yourself intimidated by a women, stop to ask yourself why. Maybe it’s the way she carries herself. Maybe it’s more of a reflection of what you perceive you aren’t able to do, or the way you compare yourself to her. It’s ok to be self-aware, but its not ok to make another person feel self conscious for your feelings.
And vice versa, ladies. Don’t project your feelings onto men you hardly know.
Moral of zeee rant, get to know someone before developing opinions. 😊
Good morning!! ☀️

⭐️1 minute per movement ⭐️3 rounds, minimal rest ⭐️focus on execution of form rather than how many reps you can squeeze in. .
⭐️warm-up—cat cow & some quadruped hip n’ shoulder circles: hands and feet are hip width apart, shoulders over wrists. Key notes-press palms into the ground and pull your belly button towards the spine while arching your back like a frightened cat. Pull the shoulder blades back and together while curving the spine in the opposite direction. .
⭐️plank hip dips: imagine the floor is your ex boyfriend and you want to get as far away from him as possible by pressing your forearms against the floor to create space between the floor and your chest. Create half moon 🌙 shapes with your body as you swivel your hips back and forth. .
⭐️ forearm pike: avoid arching your low back as you move into an upside down V position. As you come back down into a plank draw the belly button towards your spine for total abdomen engagement. .
⭐️ knees elevated bird dog: press your palms firmly into the floor creating space between the floor and your chest, keep knees low. Strive for full extension of the opposite arm and leg.
YASS! Werk it. ♥️
When you feel painful emotions, it's your body and heart telling you that you are abandoning yourself or that something involving a person or a situation needs your attention. Peaceful and joyful feelings, on the other hand, are letting you know that you are loving yourself. I’m getting much better at this self care thing. 😊
Moral of the story: enjoy all the peaceful and joyful things that are abundant in your life. And there is abundance for all, just open your eyes and recognize. 🙌🏻♥️
🦍Here’s a quick choreographed Animal Flow filmed at the end of our weekend certification course. I’m hooked. What hooked me? The fact that movement is universal and animal flow is just that—there is structure of course, but we move according to how we feel, what type of mood we’re in, and you sense that feeling and mood through movement, no talking necessary. 🐆ARE YOU INTERESTED IN LEARNING & FLOWING WITH ME!?
🦀We are not certified yet! To get certified we are required to instruct fundamental movements and design a flow for a client or friend to learn. We’ll spend time going over the movements and record our final flow to submit for approval. 🐊Anyone down!? If you are reach out ASAP and let’s start flowing!!
🦍Big thanks to our coaches for spending the weekend with us. The animal flow community is dope and I can’t wait to practice and continue learning.
Here’s another fun little game! 💥BUILD EXPLOSIVE POWER with MEDICINE BALLS 💥The goal of explosive exercise training is to ultimately move heavy weights very quickly. But to get to that point safely, without risking injury, it's important to start with light weights and slow controlled movements. 💥Over a matter of training sessions (several weeks), the weight used and speed at which it's used will increase. ✴️3-4 rounds; 10 reps per movement; with little rest in between. Let’s go.🤜🏼🤛🏼
✴️ lunge to chest pass ✴️ split stance rotational throw ✴️ standing medicine ball scoop throw ✴️ lateral hop rotational throw
With our powers combined (aka my back and her butt) we can do it all! 🤪😂🔥
On a serious note, Amanda is so lovely and puts in WORK. I respect the grind, darling!
Do you have friends who influence you to be better? Go do your good deed for the day and thank them. 🤜🏼🤛🏼

“The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried.”🤸🏻♀️ 🌟How much should I practice to get a handstand? (Or any move for that matter)
Let’s make this superrr simple. The more often you practice, the better your handstand will become, even if it means dedicating just 10 minutes per day. 🌟(I spend about 10-20 minutes.) Take your time! And don't rush to meet arbitrary standards. 🌟At first it may seem a little daunting, especially when your main focus is to not fall over! 🌟Release any fear and don’t worry, In time you won’t have to think of all the techniques and they’ll just happen naturally.
🌟Let’s be real, balancing on my hands DOES NOT come naturally, but a daily practice of 10-15 minutes has helped build the necessary foundation, and everything is beginning to feel like second nature. DON’T QUIT! And when you feel like quitting, remember the quote above.👆🏻#goalgetter #persistance

“I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.” – Marissa Mayer ❤️I live for those “Aha!” moments. And so many of you had made significant progress this week! My heart is full, I love you all.

✨“We workout while chatting about life, love, work, goals, and dreams. Then we push one another to get out of our comfort zones we call “home” in order to face the goals that’s seem too big or a little too scary. ✨I surround myself with strong and inspiring people who continue to push and believe in me. I can only hope I’m doing the same for them too. ✨You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Are they beneficial to your growth? And do you supply the love back to them?” #handstanddrills

There are a lot of obstacles to getting a good workout in. Some people have a hard time getting out of bed! Other hurdles include finding motivation, switching up monotonous workouts, and remain consistent. ✨There is one simple solution to all of these issues: recruit a workout partner! Having that all important friend will very likely help you stay on track and motivated. 🤜🏼🤛🏼 Kirra said it perfectly, “I don’t need a cheerleader, I need someone who can keep it 100%, keep me in check when I’m doing something out of line; someone to push my limits and challenge me.” I’m here for you, babe, Inside the gym and outside the gym. 🖤🤘🏼

“Let’s flex on all our haters because we’re the beauties and the beasts! Be fucking intense, GET UNCOMFORTABLE!” | motivating words from 💣💥@fitgurlmel #itsamovement #girlpower
Welcome August. I’ve been waiting for you for what seems like a lifetime. Please stay a while.😃☀️🧡This month, I’m focusing on spending quality time in the prettiest New England coastal towns, honoring my intuition, (because this wild force hasn’t steered me wrong yet), investing in mahself, letting go of what I think “should be”, and making one human being smile 😁 Every. Single. Day.
1️⃣Sieze Summertime. I always feel a sense of wholeness when I come back from a beach trip. Rhode Island and Montauk are two very special places that allow me to go back to my roots and recharge. Prioritize happiness NOW!
2️⃣Honor your intuition. Trust your gut and show yourself love by honoring the messages that it’s sending.
3️⃣Invest in yourself. The value that I possess is important enough to me that I’m going to give it the energy, space, and time to grow and create results.
4️⃣Detach from the outcome & live in the wisdom of uncertainty. I’m 💯 % guilty of creating a plan, and then feeling some sort of way when it doesn’t follow through the way I intended. Trust that everything happens for a reason.
5️⃣Make someone smile every day. Seeing other people happy makes me happy. As an empath I pick up on other people’s frequencies and vibrations, and if I can make your day better (even at my own expense) I’ll do it. Looking like a goon and all. #lfaintentions
Medicine Ball Strength & Conditioning 💙Exercise is always praised as the ultimate stress-reducer; after all, studies have shown that it can be a game changer for mental health, linked to major improvements in both depression and anxiety. But for many of us–as we drag our butts to the gym on a Thursday evening and spend 45 miserable minutes on a stationary bike we can’t help but wonder if our workout brought more stress than good into our day. 💙What is clear is that there’s no reason to force yourself to do something you hate. Give yourself permission to break free from what you think you SHOULD be doing and embrace something entirely new. 💙That’s why I am here, to help you de-stress and find movements that you LOVE. 🏐Come play with purpose @ @chelseapiersfitness

🍴AGING: 100 at 50 or 50 at 100? 🍑Nutrition is clearly the most important factor you can take to control how long you live, whether you will be diagnosed with major diseases, and whether you will be active and strong or sedentary and frail in old age. 🥕How many people believe that it’s natural for our bodies to just break down and become immobile once we reach our grandmothers and fathers age? 🍊A recent study examined nearly a thousand men and women who were 38 years old. It found that, in terms of their biological conditions, some seemed no older than 30, while others appeared closer to 65! Furthermore, all those who were biologically older than their true age would continue to age quickly in later years. 🍍If this isn’t eye opening, then I give up, folks! Obviously that’s neverrr an option, so I’ll just keep convincing you to improve your diet with cold hard facts. 👊🏼
🌶Maybe one day we will determine how old someone is not based on the year he or she was born, but on his or her own biological age, which we are starting to be able to accurately measure. #nerdingout #soexciting #foreveryoung
🤔If you could GUESS what YOUR BIOLOGICAL AGE is, what would it be?
🖤What happens when we ignore our pleasure, our sensual brilliance? We start to shrink. Everything in our world is disadvantaged because we are not present. Our truth is not present because our desires are not present. And our desires are not present because the only way for a woman to connect with her desire is to connect with her pleasure. Pleasure is the jet fuel that makes desire a reality. 🖤A woman can’t do her job of being a woman without her sensual brilliance engaged. She is working with a 25-watt bulb instead of the 100-watts that are her birthright. 🖤So ladies, ask yourself this...where will your sensual brilliance lead you, once you toss her the keys and allow her to drive? #pussyareclamation #schoolofwomanlyarts
Snack plan one time, eat throughout the week.🍴(If you remember to divvy your snacks and don’t just eat two potions in one sitting because it’s so goddamn delicious and you’re just trying to live your best life.) 🤷🏻♀️ It will save you time, money, and energy on decision making throughout the day. #mealprepqueen #setupforsuccess

What Does Feminine Energy Look Like in 2018?
🌼It’s no longer about man vs. woman. Commander vs. conqueror. This is a time for all of us to look for harmony and unity—to remove what has defined and divided us and activate our inner Goddess. 🌼➡️The evolved Goddess is someone who is mindful and acts as a role model for driving forward conscious change. A Goddess unites people, nourishes other people's energy, feeds them wisdom, and helps them feel safe and secure. 🌼Now more than ever, it's all about the energy and intention behind your actions. As a society, the past year has seen unethical, immoral, and unauthentic behavior called out. From the #MeToo
movement to the wave of new voices entering politics, 2018 is shaping up to be a year of unity and compassion. We are all being made accountable to step up, support, and be the best versions of ourselves. 🌼That includes the males too.
Dialing up your Goddess isn’t going to emasculate you. On the contrary, owning your intuition, emotional, and empathic side can make you a more in-tune lover, more emotionally intelligent in business, and give you a more well-rounded perspective on the world around you. 📸 @stockezy

🚴🏽♂️As biking continues to grow in popularity in cities around the country, and fitness studios like FlyWheel and SoulCycle are expanding like crazy — it's clear that this cycling habit will probably stick around. And that's a great thing! There are so many benefits to bike riding. 🚴🏻♀️Cycling has long been a great alternative for those looking to get fit without the joint pain that can come from higher-impact forms of cardio such as running and jumping. Simply hop on a bike and watch the calories tick away, while your energy levels rise and your fatigue levels plummet. Oh, and forgive me for preaching my hippy dippy ways, but outdoor activities are extremely healing. There’s no denying the psychological benefits from spending time in nature, especially while being active. Movement + Nature = inner (and real) happiness. Nothing beats that natural euphoria of the wind blowing past your face and that gratifying dose of accomplishment as you tread up and down hills. Ok I’m ready to cycle now. 😁
🚴🏻♂️And...if you’re an avid cyclist or wishing to become one, there are ways to increase your performance on the bike!
Adding in strength movements such as planks, burpees, kettlebell swings, lunges, deadlifts and front squats can help get you in cycling shape before or during the season. #playwithpurpose #cpbk
and I are participating in @leefromamerica #LFAintentions
In the short time we’ve known each other (and after realizing we are scary alike) we decided to be accountability friends. Yay! 👯♀️💜 Here’s to a happy happy July, babe!
I’ve done a lot of inner work and growth last month, feels like I’ve shedded an old version of me that I was finally ready to release. Summer is here! 😎 I’m looking forward to longer days, time in nature, and all the sunsets. 🌅
Here are this months intentions:
1️⃣ Put down the📱 No more A.M. scrolling. My cell phone is a time sucker. It sucks precious time from our days, and at such a crucial time of day, you need all the clarity to start off on the right foot.
2️⃣ Enjoy your free time; play more! Play is so crucial to our wellbeing and overall productivity. Work and everyday chores can seem monotonous and when there’s no play involved we can get a little stir crazy and unmotivated.
3️⃣ Create meaningful relationships. Technology has made it easy to stay connected with others, but what I’m really craving is more “in the flesh” communication, openness, and genuine connection. Love is in the air—and I intend to breath it in. Every. Single. Day.
4️⃣ Fiercely chase after what you want. Take that leap and do what your heart urges you to do. Be confident in your direction and persist.
5️⃣ Give yourself the love you need, so you can go out in the world with more love. No explanation needed. The world needs more kindness and love, especially now in a time full of hate, lies, and uncertainty. #lovetrumpshate
