The heavy ropes are a fun variation of a total body workout.


Keep your natural ability to squat. You were born with it!

Great article. I would add:

-the first part of a squat is a shifting backwards of the hips
-keep your weight in your heels and outsides of your feet
-hold abdominals tight to keep the chest lifted

I work with so many clients in regaining their ability to squat but not necessarily all clients can squat to the floor. That’s ok. We will work around any limitations.

Another one of my ‘Healthy Mind Games’

My secret 😳cupboard (I hide this stuff from myself): homemade cookies (thanks @smzeljak), brownies (thanks ES HS girls💃), 1/2 chocolate chip scone, 1/2 poppy seed muffin. I eat 1/2 at a time. The vanilla and cinnamon go in the whipped cream (little Bodum whipper there next to containers of coffee and green tea) for my coffee. Second pic: what I don’t hide. (+usually strawberries). One of my #mindgames in staying healthy. Try it! Let me know how it goes… . . @yourworldtrainer for #travelerswhotrain🏃🏼‍♀️💪🏻 #personaltrainer #fitnessmotivation #fitness #weightlossjourney #deliciousfood #healthyfood #wholefoods #sweettooth #sweetoothsatisfied #noforbiddenfoods #elsegundo #manhattanbeach #hermosabeach #redondobeach #playavista #losangeles #boston #sanfrancisco #chicago 💃🌊

I won!

Nature, the ocean, fresh air and nothing but the sound of birds and waves.. those are things that inspire me!


No headphones here. No way. When I hear the sounds of the natural world, I’m all in for my outdoor workouts. I work through so many challenges, problems, and I get super creative. It is so de-stressing and the feeling is awesome! I think if you give it a try, it’s very meditative and calming. If you go into a workout with the attitude of having to just get through it and get it over with, it may not hook you. And I would hate for you to miss out on that unreal feeling of not only being done but feeling inspired to do it again and and again, and be connected to nature and the outdoors. Plus you never know who you may meet along the way.


Look! Here’s a sneak peek at @coolie_surf ‘s new workout tights. Introducing the Vahine Polynesian Tattoo. The bomb! I’m not a fancy girl. I’m a bit on the casual side but I have to be comfortable in my workout stuff, it has to be original, AND I want to look and feel good all day long no matter where I have to go. Let’s admit it, it’s motivating to have cute stuff that still looks cute even when you’re sweating. Hey and if you need a lift, I mean a little inspiration to workout, buy something new for yourself, and it shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg!! . . #comfortable #iliveinthem #allpurpose #photoshoot #fitness #fitnessmotivation #personaltrainer #worldtrainer for #travelerswhotrain🏃🏼‍♀️💪🏻 whotrain🏃🏼‍♀️💪🏻#worldtrainerkorea #elsegundo #manhattanbeach #hermosabeach #redondobeach #playavista #thepoint #losangeles #sanfrancisco #lifeisbeautiful #foreveryoung #foreverfit #foreverfriends ❤️🌊🏃🏼‍♀️🐬🌴🏄‍♀️
